It's Monday! (7/13/15)

It's Monday! is sponsored by Sheila at Book Journey.
So far July reading has been fabulous. I chose some books I was a bit dubious
about, but I'm having a blast with them all.
Last week I finished Jane Smiley's Early Warning and Jon Krakauer's Under the Banner of Heaven. I recommend them both--and in Krakauer's case, highly. Both really drew me in, and both were well written and intellectually engaging.
This weekend I had a lot of uninterrupted reading time, so I finished Jim Gaffigan's Food: A Love Story and Dominique Browning's Around the House and in the Garden. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed Gaffigan's book. I thought it could be a bust, but I actually found it quite funny. I've added his Dad Is Fat to my TBR now.

This week I'll be reading:
 Jen Lancaster's I Regret Nothing (love that cover),
the second in the Clementine series, The Talented Clementine (I simply adore Clementine, so funny),
Love, Loss, and What I Wore (a re-read, love the artwork of the outfits),
and the audio of Mansfield Park (it's taking a bit to get into it, but I'm enjoying it now).


Whew! That's a lot of books. What are you devouring this summer?
