It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 7-17-17



Good Morning!   It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week.  It's a great post to organise yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!


I finished One True Thing by Anna Quindlen.  





See this post or  here is my review on Goodreads. 

I got started on 
and so far it is living up to my expectations. 


I still have Liar Liar, Tabloid Writer on my Kindle. I haven't been back to it, but at soon as the J.D. Robb book( a library loan) is finished, I will go on to Ms. Quint's offering. 

Investigative journalist Cleo Morgan’s stories have created Pulitzer buzz, but circumstance push her into a lucrative but career-destroying job writing for a tabloid.

Alejandro Ramirez is blown away by the new star reporter. There's definitely chemistry. Except she thinks she's better than everyone at the tabloid where they work. That grates on him since she's going to be writing stories about aliens and Elvis sightings just like the rest of them.

In spite of the chemistry, she doesn't want to have anything to do with the smug news whore she thinks he is. Except she's already having fantasies about this hot Cuban ex-pat who's showing her the ropes at her new job. Before they have a chance to make this attraction work, Cleo's mother, an ex-Vegas showgirl, is charged with the murder of a Las Vegas casino owner. To clear her mother, Cleo will have to see that Alejandro hasn't sold out, and he will learn that she really is as good as she thinks she is.
 




I thought I might have some down time while attending the state Quilt Convention this weekend, but I was out of the house at 6 am and did not return until after 8 pm. By then I was so tired that only a shower and a glass of wine seemed appropriate. So I will work on Ceremony in Death this week and also some of the projects acquired at the vendor booths this weekend.  😃

I am linking up with Kathryn at Book Date. What are you reading this week?


Until next time, 
Stay Busy and Stay Happy

  2. That sounds like a good kind of tired! I hope you find more time to read this week, though. :)

    1. It was a good tired. A happy tired! I amused or maybe ashamed to say, that when I read Ceremony in Death at bedtime, I ended up with really vivid dreams. Not nightmares actually, but startled awake kind of dreams.....I'm too old for nightmares!! sigh!
