It's Monday! (7/20/15)

It's Monday! is sponsored by Sheila at Book Journey.
Last week I finished three books, and I really liked them all.
First was my re-read of Love, Loss, and What I Wore. The autobiographical parts were a bit darker than I remember, but I enjoyed the flow nonetheless.
I also finished The Talented Clementine, the second in the series for young readers. Clementine is funny, sweet, and clever in her antics. She just can't help but get into trouble. The books are clean, but anything but boring. I adored this book as much as the first book, and I'll likely be reading the entire series now.
And this weekend, I finished Jen Lancaster's I Regret Nothing. I loved this book! It's similar in feel and writing to her The Tao of Martha, but I think I enjoyed this one even more. She writes about her life, in sort of a friendly, personal, blog-type style. She's full of life and fun. I adore her books.
This week I'm continuing with Mary Oliver's newest book of poems, Blue Horses. Good as ever.
I'm also listening to Jane Austen's Mansfield Park. I kind of detest the audio version I bought. The narrator's voice is too high, too shrill, and too British. Because of this, I'm having trouble following the story and really getting into it. And that's too bad because I was really looking forward to this one.
I began reading The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate this weekend, but I think I'll put it down as soon as my copy of Go Set the Watchman arrives this week. (Which, as luck would have it, is delayed in transit!)

What are you reading this week?
