Its Monday, What are you Reading?

 Its Monday and time to hop over to One Persons Journey to find out what everyone read last week.  It was a good week last week. The kids let me read and get the house clean. 4 books last week.

What I Read:

  • Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer.   It was good. It was a good reread. The movie did a great job with this book.
  • The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephenie Meyer. I was not crazy about this. Review is posted. I am glad however i read it, because there were parts taken from it and put into the movie Eclipse. I agree with several of my commenters to that review, and novella of Leah would have been 10x better. Stephenie...there is an idea...just in case by chance you read this!
  • Hurricane Bay by Heather Graham. And old one by her, but her at her finest. That was a good mystery thriller. I guessed a lot though the book on who was the murderer. 5 stars!
  • The Reliable Wife by Robert Gooldrick. I just posted a review. I wanted to love it. I did like it. It was strange and differant. Defiently worth the read i think.
Current read : Poor Little B**** Girl by Jackie Collins. My first book by her.

What else this week: No idea...whatever strikes the mood i guess.

I'm still waiting to see Eclipse. I want to wait until the initial crowds die down. I did like The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner though. I like learning about some minor characters. Here is my Monday Report. Happy reading!

Haven't seen Eclipse, but I did enjoy reading about Bree Tanner. Hope you have a great week.

I have had The Reliable Wife on my shelf for a while and have dragged my feet on it because what you said here is pretty much what I have heard..... should have been loved - kind of wasn't.

You and I agreed on Bree too.... I read it - I didn't get a lot of it... but it did fit well into the movie. I read that the actors int he movie had to read the Twilight series and the Bree book to fully understand their roles. I like that.

Have a great week :)
