It’s Monday September 15th, What Are You Reading?


It was a weekend full of movie-going (The Drop and Boyhood), but I did get started on a few new books. The cover of Rainey Royal has been calling to me since I first saw it at BEA, so I’m excited to finally pick it up, along with The Way Inn by Will Wiles. Since Brown Girl Dreaming is part of a readalong (through Tumblr’s Reblog Book Club), I’m working at it slowly, which is exactly how it should be read. It’s beautiful.

I’m super excited to be heading to the SIBA Trade Show this Friday and Saturday, but will be missing Bloggiesta while I’m gone. I’d definitely recommend checking it out if you haven’t participated before! Hopefully I can at least pop in on Thursday’s Twitter chat.

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?

  • Alice @ ofBooks

    Sisters by the River by Barbara Comyns, she’s the only author I seem to be able to read at the moment.

  • JoAnn @ Lakeside Musing

    Love that cover of Rainey Royal, too! Will look forward to your thoughts.

  • Rainey Royal does have a cool cover! Although I like all those covers really! How is Rainey Royal?

    I haven’t heard of any of those books, but they do sound interesting!!!

  • Sheila DeChantal

    The Way Inn looks super awesome!

  • I read Rainey Royal earlier this month and really enjoyed it. I look forward to hearing what you think!

  • That cover for Rainey Royal is killer . . . and strong praise from Roxane Gay! That almost sells it to me right there. I’ll be looking for your review!

  • Well I am sold on the Rainey Royal cover. Here is my Monday I am so easy to seduce though. LOL

  • jen mullen

    I like the cover and the description of Rainey Royal, but need to check the others out as well1

  • I’m re-reading The Adventures of Tom Sawyer – the book is, obviously, fantastic, but I’m moving way too slow, as I’ve been so sick lately ;(

  • Ti Reed

    I just finished The Way Inn. It surprised me at the end. I will be interested to hear your take on it.

  • Finishing off Jonathan Tropper’s This Is Where I Leave You and then probably starting on Aislinn Hunter’s The World Before Us.


    I’d like to read The Way Inn, it looks pretty good
