It’s Monday, What am I reading ? ……. 16

It’s Monday, What am I reading is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila over at Book Journey.

For other blogs participating head on over and check them out.

So, What am I reading ?

The same things as last week ! I know ! I feel like I’m a record player saying it and I still didn’t even get the book review done during the week. Things were hectic, well things are nearly always hectic with 8 children and life but this past week especially so and most evenings I was just to tired to read and if I thought last week was bad this week is worse ! I really really wanted to get some books finished. I’ve to renew most from the library again, sighhhh ah well.

Anyway enough wallowing, I did make progress on two books in particular and they are here with my thoughts so far,

I am near finished this and all I can say is I knew it !! I had it figured out about 10 chapters ago and had to keep reading to see if I were right, now I suppose I better finish it just to see if it can surprise me with any last minute things but I doubt it. I am wondering though how it gets so many 5 stars !

This is such a sweet read and is predictable but then it’s not a whodunnit kind of book. It’s sweet and all about human nature in its fullest.

Of my two books in this weeks post I was expecting me to be tearing my hair out at the mundaneness of Friendship Bread and to be fully engrossed in trying to figure out Gone Girl and here I stand with those expectations in a heap of topsy turvy !! Who knew 🙂

    I hope your weeks settle down a bit. I have been curious about Gone Girl but haven’t tried it yet. Come see my Monday Report here. Happy reading!

    You always impress me with your ability to get anything done with 8 kids! Come share some memories, it’s Monday.

    I am chuckling about your comment regarding how busy this week was-cause I had 4 kids and I never stopped moving for many of those raising up years, and here you have double that! I don’t know how you get time to do anything relaxing and just for you! 🙂 I found Gone Girl to be just so twisted and I am not sure I would read anything else by her-I read it for a book group we had going at work last year, and don’t know if I would have ever picked it up on my own. Hope this week brings happier and more satisfying reading to you!

  5. Have a great week week Ruth, hope the next one is a bit calmer than the previous ones.

  6. I have had a problem finding time to read also-am hoping this week will be a little better. I loved Gone Girl- can’t wait to read your review- they both annoyed me to tears!

    I still haven’t read Gone Girl. ENJOY your week!!

      Don’t you love how tbr piles grow and grow and grow and no matter how much we read they don’t seem to decrease anything ! Oh thank’s for the tip off, how wonderful, excited and heading over now. 🙂

    You’re so patient to stick with a book that you’re apprehensive about. Books can be wildcards, yeah?
    I’m only on Chapter 4 of Friendship Bread. I haven’t been reading lately. I’ll try tonight.

    Can’t wait to read your thoughts on Gone Girl! I also read it about a month ago.
