It’s Monday Where am I reading…. and what??

The Challenge is Where am I reading, not What!! I got a bit mixed up on that one! I have not posted in a few weeks, but finished the 19th Wife AND Water for Elephants, my new favorite book!
The 19th wife was based in Missouri, Iowa, Utah and Nevada. I though t was a very interesting book and entertaining book. The story line went back and forth between present day and pioneer days.
Water for Elephants was recommended by a friend who said it was her favorite book of all time. It was definitely one of those total thought provoking books for me, and I don’t even like the circus!! I really do enjoy historical books that have a good story line and to be funny now and then helps too! I highly recommend Water for Elephants.
I also finished Waking Up in Dixie, an easy read about a southern gentleman whose stroke caused life change for him and his family. It was pretty light, but I enjoyed it. Just the right thing after Water for Elephants. This was of course based in Georgia.
My current read is Still Missing by Chevy Stevens. It is set in the Pacific Northwest, but I think a fictiticous town. It is written in first person and is about a woman who is abducted and her subsequent dealing with the fallout. So far it has grabbed me, but I started it last night after taking a sleeping pill, so I probably need to reread a few pages!
This is a busy week for me. Valentine’s Day today and trying to make a nice dessert because we are having leftovers made into stir-fry tonight. Tomorrow is a doctor’s appointment, Thursday is my normal pain management group AND my tax appointment!
So it’s off to start working on my taxes, after making a nice dessert. Happy Valentine’s Day!
