It's Monday! What Are You Reading? March 15

Yay! My favorite time of the week because I love interacting with my book bloggin' friends and seeing what everyone is reading. Sheila at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books hosts this meme, so link up and join in the fun.

I had a great week of reading, for me anyway. So proud of myself. It helped that the Olympics were over and the weather was crappy, so I wasn't motivated to do chores or anything else but read.

I read:




(The Tao of Mia and Leo)

I reviewed The Crying Tree, which I really enjoyed. I still need to review the others and hope to get to that this week.

Gave up after reading 137 pages:

This memoir held my interest at first but turned out to be too novel-like and not enough about actual births, like I had hoped.







Plan to read:














I leave you all with a picture of my nephew with my dad's dog Emma - the model in my header. Is her face not just the sweetest?!



What about you? Read anything good this week?

I loved The Crying Tree. It was really well done and I thought she dealt with the subject matter well.

Here is my Monday: http://thelostentwife.net/2010/03/14/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-12/

I am curious about Debbie Macoombers book - how was it? I havent read her in a long time.

Crying Tree sounds interesting - checking out your review now :)

The Crying Tree is one I've noticed around a few blogs and I admit it's got my attention. Here's mine.

Volunteer Vacations looks good! I've been meaning to read Debbie Macomber but haven't gotten around to it yet.

The Crying Tree is getting great reviews - keeping my eyes open for that one.
Remarkable Creatures is another on my list - hope you enjoy it.
Emma is gorgeous - as is your header!

Have a great week!

That dog (in your header and with your nephew) is adorable! Love the header pose especially.
