It’s Monday! What are you reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey where we discuss what we have been up to lately, and what we are looking forward to in the coming week. Stop over there and see what other bloggers have posted!
I actually had a great time this week blog wise!
I took part in Bloggiesta, where bloggers map out all the little things they want to do to clean up/improve their blog! I got some of my goals accomplished- very happy- but not the big things like making a Reviews Page, fixing widgets (I stink at this), and joining The Classsics Club-though I think I have finally picked out all 50 books I want to read, so I should be able to do that soon!
I did get the following done-
1- completed the A to Z Survey, 2- cross posted old reviews, 3- posted the second part to The Book Thief Read Along, 4- checked out 4 of the mini challenges.
Bloggiesta was a lot of fun and I would definitely do it again.
I posted a review of Amity & Sorrow.
I am currently reading-
The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty
From the author of the critically acclaimed What Alice Forgot comes a breakout new novel about the secrets husbands and wives keep from each other.
My Darling Cecilia
If you’re reading this, then I’ve died . . .
Imagine your husband wrote you a letter, to be opened after his death. Imagine, too, that the letter contains his deepest, darkest secret – something so terrible it would destroy not just the life you built together, but the lives of others too. Imagine, then, that you stumble across that letter while your husband is still very much alive . . .
Cecilia Fitzpatrick achieved it all – she’s an incredibly successful business woman, a pillar of her small community and a devoted wife and mother. Her life is as orderly and spotless as her home. But that letter is about to change everything, and not just for her: Rachel and Tess barely know Cecilia – or each other – but they too are about to feel the earth-shattering repercussions of her husband’s devastating secret. (from Goodreads)
Next up, not to sure. I really news to sit down and map out what is lined up, but I think it will probably be Bellman & Black by Diane Setterfield.
Caught up in a moment of boyhood competition, William Bellman recklessly aims his slingshot at a rook resting on a branch, killing the bird instantly. It is a small but cruel act, and is soon forgotten. By the time he is grown, with a wife and children of his own, William seems to have put the whole incident behind him. It was as if he never killed the thing at all. But rooks don’t forget…
Years later, when a stranger mysteriously enters William’s life, his fortunes begin to turn—and the terrible and unforeseen consequences of his past indiscretion take root. In a desperate bid to save the only precious thing he has left, he enters into a rather strange bargain, with an even stranger partner. Together, they found a decidedly macabre business.
And Bellman & Black is born
How was your week? What are you reading?
I really loved The Husband’s secret particularly with the link to Pandora’ s box (or jar)
Loved The Husband’s Secret. I have Bellman and Black to read too.
ENJOY your week. It looks good. My week is in the link below.
My It’s Monday, What Are You Reading
I hope you like The Husband’s Secret! With work, I just haven’t had a lot of time to read lately. My weekends are mostly spent decompressing. Been playing catch-up on reviews. I’ve got so much to read, though! By the way, did you ever join Twitter? I ask because when I tweet your reviews, I always say “via Turn the Page Reviews.” LOL
Thanks so much! I am still Twitter challenged. I believe I am on there-somewhere-my son said he set it up. But I don’t know how to send a tweet- never have.
What is your twitter name? It’s really easy and fun!
Didn’t know there was another book by the author of The Thirteenth Tale. Sweet!
I am reading Antony and Cleopatra by Colleen McCullough with the History Group on Goodreads. Good so far.
I read that- it was very good- enjoy!
I loved The Husband’s Secret as well! I hope you do too. Congrats on your Bloggiesta achievements!
Have a great reading week!
I can’t wait to read THE HUSBAND’S SECRET!
Enjoy Bellman and Black 🙂
