It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey.
Holy smokes! What a week! As many of you know Armchair BEA wrapped up yesterday. It was a busy week here on the old blog. Like a dingaling I had regular reviews scheduled for the week as well, whoops. (I’ll plan that better next year!) Regular book reviews + ABEA posts = CRAZINESS.
For those of you that were able to go to New York for the BEA
I hate you I want to hear all about your adventures!

I’m continuing to read Under the Dome for the Summer Readalong hosted by Natalie @ Coffee and a Book Chick
The same books that I listed last time. I’m not going to post the titles again because it makes me feel PRESSURED! I’m working on it you guys, I swear. I’m trying to get through my review books. I’ve stopped requesting books from the library. I WILL catch up.
Armchair BEA posts:
- In my introductory post I brag about my sweet little town and complain about the animals that give me the willies.
- The easiest giveaway you’ll ever enter can be found here.
- I did some fangirling over nonfiction books.
- Wrapping it all up here!
My May wrap-up post can be found here. It was a great month!
I want to thank Tanya from Mom’s Small Victories for this wonderful post. Please go show her some much deserved love!
Thanks for visiting, have a great week, and as always: HAPPY READING!

Hi there Jennifer, I used to have a Stephen King phase back when I was in my undergraduate years – haven't picked up any of his novels much more recently though. How are you finding that book so far?
True Lindsey! Too bad I feel like I have to read them quickly, ha ha! I think I get worried that some books will be archived on Netgalley before I get a chance to get to them. I need a chill pill 😉
It really was 🙂
I'm definitely going to have to watch the Dome mini-series!
Book blogger problems 😉 Thanks so much! You're a peach!
I really did, it's a great event. It was my first time but I'll definitely be participating again!
I haven't read anything of his in many years. (Besides a short story) I'm remembering how much I loved his style. His books feel like \”home\” if that makes sense? 🙂
Start saving your money now so you can go to BEA next year!
I really should 😉 I'd certainly LOVE to go!
You're so brave tackling King's book. 🙂 Every now and then I catch a Tweet about the read-along and think what fun everyone must be having.I haven't yet participated in Armchair BEA. Maybe someday. It always sounds like so much fun!
Thanks 😉 It's a chunky one that's for sure.I hope you do join in the ABEA next year. It's a blast!
I would so like to join in on the Dome-along or whatever it's called, but I have too big a backlog of ARCs. I don't know how I keep burying myself in obligation or why. I've got to stop that and just enjoy reading in the old-fashioned sense — off my shelves, from the library, what I want when I want. I've been blogging for nearly 7 years and have never made it to BEA. Maybe someday. Eldest son is moving to NJ so New York City seems more possible, now, if that makes sense.
I'm working on getting through my review obligations right now. I didn't mean to let myself get over-scheduled. Whoops! I'm hoping to be back to reading whatever I want soon :)That does make sense. And holy cats, 7 years? That's awesome!
How is Under the Dome so far? I often like Stephen King but never read this one yet. my Monday post
I'm really liking it so far. It had been much too long since I'd read a big King book 🙂 Thanks for visiting!
