This is a weekly event initially hosted by J. Kaye at J. Kaye's Book Blog, now by Sheila @ One Persons Journey through a world of Books, to celebrate what you are reading for the week as well as books completed the previous week.
Books completedThe Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd (Definitely WOW quality! Thanks to all of you who suggested this book to me)
Books on my nightstand
The Passage by Justin Cronin: I'm really, truly, sincerely glad to report that I finally started reading this book. I'm just over 150 pages in, but I am enjoying it so far - Justin Cronin's writing is really engaging. It's not exactly spine-chilling so far, nevertheless, having been reading this book at bedtime the first night, I woke up within 20 minutes from a really scary nightmare. I usually sleep with the blinds open so that I don't oversleep in the mornings, but after the nightmare, I shut all the blinds because I kept feeling that someone was standing on the patio. Brrrr!
Finny by Justin Kramon: I really hate it when deadlines creep up on me. I'm not the kind of person who likes doing anything at the last minute, but many a time, that's just what happens. I have to put up a review of this book by Wednesday, so I'm going to pick this book up right away. I'm at least back to my usual reading routine, thanks to The Secret Life of Bees.
