It's Monday...what are you reading?

I don't think I've done this for awhile so if I repeat myself on some of these please excuse me.  I've read quite bit actually...........
Here are the books I've finished........... this one was alright but only 3 ***.  
This one was very good but she did run this one on and on.  Her books are usually long but the plot on this one just kept going....still it's a 4**** because I love her writing and her stories.  A very talented writer.
This was a delight to read and if you love nature and/or gardening you would enjoy this.  It would also make a great book to gift someone. 4 ****
Remember The Drew Carey Show and Mimi, the gal who wore the outlandish outfits and loads of makeup?  Well, she wrote this book with her friend and it is good.  I've pretty much done this already but for those who haven't it is a "beacon in the night".  Everyone deserves to be happy but  so many women have been socialized by society and the church to "give until it hurts" and I have seen these miserable creatures with my own eyes! LOL!  So, if you're miserable...read this book!  These ladies are a hoot!
 4 ****
I have no idea where this book came from and it's not something I would have picked up I don't think unless I got it free at the library sale....sometimes they do that on the last day.  anyway, there it was and I was tired but needed something to read and it was a pretty good story.  I'm not sure I've read Alice Hoffman before and not sure I'll read her again but it was a fast read.  3 *** 
 Right now I'm reading the Mother Earth News magazine I got for Christmas.  I always love that magazine.
For my fiction book I'm reading the 2nd book of Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs series.  LOVE!!!  Great writing and always a good mystery and it takes place in England after the first World War which is a time period I love.  I'm sure it will be a 5 ***** already.
For my non-fiction book I'm reading this which I picked up years ago but I'm enjoying it as so far I could have written the book myself! LOL!  And lest you think it is written by a "man-hater" think again.  This woman is a widow and was happily married to a doctor for years.  These are "the facts ma'am....just the facts".  LOL!
And for my audio listening pleasure...........
I read this years ago as a book but don't remember much of it so it's been like a new book in actuality.  I read a lot of Agatha Christie back in my 20's and lent  them all to a gal who never returned them.  I wish I had them all back as I love her books!
This was one of her classics too and I think it was made into a movie.  It will probably get a 5 ***** also when I'm done listening to it.
Many of these books/tapes etc. are also part of my "clearing and cleaning" and I'm actually trying to read books I'm pretty sure I won't keep so I'll have less of them to move.
Happy Trails!

  1. You have been a busy bee reading. Me too. I have the Hedgehog book and haven't read it yet, but it looks charming. I love the Winspear books and am pretty far in to the series.

    1. Actually, I'm pretty sure I got the the Hedgehog book idea from your blog. It is really a book you will love to read at the end of the day...from one gardener to another. I had read several of the Maisie Dobbs books but started over because I couldn't remember where I was! LOL!

    1. My sentiments exactly....I pray I'll have time to clean out so they won't have so much "stuff" to go through. Although it would be easier for them because they're not "attached" to my stuff like I am.

    1. It is fun....I literally get lost in books! I usually start nodding off though so I have to go to bed early so I have enough time to read! LOL!

  5. I have finished 3 of Kate Morton's books. I really enjoy her writing. I never know what's going to happen at the end even though I think I have it figured out. I've read "The House at Riverton", "The Forgotten Garden", and I just finished "The Secret Keeper" last night. I adored "The Forgotten Garden". I would give it 10 stars. I've even decided to go buy a copy at the local used book store if I can find it. I'm reading "The Distant Hours" now. I just started it today. I love the fact that I can borrow books from my local library on my Kindle.
    As far as clearing out "stuff", I made that decision after my sister and I had to go through a storage building of Mom's stuff. I took us so long. So I'm doing the clean out as I go.
    Hugs,
    Sharon

  6. Have you read The Dove Keepers by Alice Hoffman? It's an interesting, historical fiction tale that is haunting and yet great at the same time.
