It's Monday, What Are You Reading? - August 22, 2016

Folks, I just have to hold out for a week from Tuesday...that's when the kids go back to school. The end of summer is just a hard time anyway, but we've also been "blessed" with a heat wave, making it too hot for the kids to play outside.  Let's just say much TV has been watched.

I'm not doing a FitReaders check in this week because, well, there isn't anything to report.  If you are interested, I talk a bit about it over on my vlog.

Right now, I'm reading:
The Lost Garden by Helen Humphries
This one is pretty short, so I'm taking my time with it.  It is a quiet book, so I don't feel like I need to power through it.  Still, my stack of "scheduled" books is pretty high, so I'd better get to it.

The Bitch Is Back: Older, Wiser and (Getting) Happier by Cathi Hanauer (ed).
This is a collection of feminist essays which I'm scheduled to review in October.  I have more than enough time to read one a day before my deadline, which is my plan.  It is quite entertaining, but it is somewhat of a sequel and I've never read the first it is a bit of a struggle for my inner OCD reader.

The Game Plan (Game On #3) by Kristen Callihan
This is one of those times of years when I just need some fun reading and, for me, fun, mindless reading is romance novels.  I've discovered that "sex among the football players" genre  is one of my go-tos.  I know, I'm a cliche.  But, hey, it is fun and it keeps me entertained.

Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow
Confession...I didn't make any progress on this one this week.  Oh well!

Since my last update, I finished:
The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh (finished 8/14, review 8/18)
My review already went up on this one, so you can see what I thought of it there.  But, I've been recommending it left and right lately!

Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty (finished 8/17, review 8/30)
So, right as I type this, I get an alert that this one is headed to the big screen.  For those of you who have read it....thoughts?  I'll hold onto mine until my review goes live on 8/30.

The Law of Attraction (Lawyers in Love #1) by N.M. Silber (finished 8/18, review 9/1)
This was my first dive back into romance and, um, you know.  Let's just say I probably won't be continuing with this series.

Any Given Christmas (Sugar Shack #2) by Candis Terry (finished 8/20, review 11/22)
After The Law of Attraction, I felt that I needed to go back to a tried and true author.  I really enjoyed Terry's first installment of the Sugar Shack series, and I ended up enjoying this one even more.  AND it falls in the "sex among the football players" subgenre!  I told you, it works for me....
