It's Monday! (6/22/15)

It's Monday! is sponsored by Sheila at Book Journey.
Last week, I finished Candice Bergen's A Fine Romance and L. M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables. Both are fine books. I'm glad I finally got to read most every book blogger's favorite childhood book!
As soon as I finished Anne of Green Gables, I began my audio of Jon Krakauser's Under the Banner of Heaven about fundamentalist Mormonism. I added "Reading a book by Jon Krakauer" to my list of reading goals for 2015. This book has been on my TBR for a long time, and when I noticed that my public library owns it in audio, I determined to finally read it.
This week, I'm also reading, Life is Short (No Pun Intended), Trisha Yearwood's Trisha's Kitchen, and going through the feast for the eyes photography in Flower.

I also plan to start Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food. (I swapped out P. D. James's Death Comes to Pemberley for it, realizing I'd never get a Jane Austen book read this year if I read Death.... I only have so much attention for regency romance, I guess.
And with that, my June reading list will be completed.
What's on your plate this week?


  1. I've had Under the Banner of Heaven on my TBR list for quite awhile--I'll be interested to find out what you think!

    1. I'm about 30% in, and so far so good. If you've read anything about fundamentalist Mormons, it's nothing new, though. And it's a bit outdated since it was written before the Warren Jeffs raid. But well-written.
