It's Monday! What Are You Reading This Week?

I came across this great weekly event, It's Monday! What Are You Reading This Week? at J. Kaye's Book Blog and thought it'd be fun to play along. Each Monday you can talk about the books you are reading this week, books you're planning on finishing and any reviews you have coming up. Lord knows I don't have as much going on as J. Kaye, but here goes . . .

This week I'll be reading THE HELP by Kathryn Stockett. She's a debut author who people have been raving about and since I love southern fiction, I just had to read this book. I'm almost halfway through and I'm loving it.

I'm also thinking of starting THE HERETIC'S DAUGHTER by Kathleen Kent. I've picked it up several times to start over the last several months, but ARC's always got in the way. Now that I'm caught up on those, I can read it now.

I have a review I'll be working on this week for River Jordan's new book SAINTS IN LIMBO, that I finished last week. However, I won't be posting the review until the release date of May 19th, per the author's request. This was a very interesting book that has some mystical elements that make this a unique story of faith and the power of one's mind over regret.

Well, that's my agenda for the week! If you'd like to participate, visit J.Kaye's Book Blog for more details!


  1. I have heard both THE HELP by Kathryn Stockett and THE HERETIC'S DAUGHTER by Kathleen Kent are awesome! Great reads!

  2. I've been wanting to read The Heretic's Daughter myself. Would love to hear what you think of it.

  3. I loved The Heretic's Daughter and loved it and I hear good things about The Help as well. Looks like you are going to have a great reading week.

  4. I've seen several bloggers reading The Help. I'll be watching for your review. Enjoy!

  5. I'm adding The Help to my tbr list. This is a great feature, seeing what everyone else is reading. Enjoy.

  6. I am reading The Prudent Mariner and Nineteen Minutes.

    Both of the books you listed have gotten several good reviews lately. Enjoy them!
