What Are You Reading?

Sheila over at Book Journey hosts this meme that gives you the opportunity to share the books that you have been losing yourself in lately and also the ones that you are looking forward to picking up next.

Here is what I finished last week:
Dreams of Joy was another fabulous novel by Lisa See!  I would like to post my review of this amazing novel this week, but we will see if I can arrange my thoughts in a way that will only serve justice to this piece of work.

And then I decided to sneak this smaller novel into my schedule:

I was asked to review Lamb Bright Saviors by Robert Vivian over a year ago but just have been unable to squeeze it into my reading schedule.  Since it is a smaller book I decided to delve into this one before I start our summer book club selection.

And next, for our summer book club selection I will be finally reading:

I know that I meant to start reading The Help by Kathryn Stockett last week, but I changed my mind, and I have a right to do that!  I am definitely looking forward to the movie adaptation of this one!

So how about you?  What kind of reading has been keeping you busy lately?

Have a good week, Jo-jo!

I'm reading all kinds of things at the moment. Non-fiction, fiction, serious stuff and romance. :-)

I hate it when I love a book but can't put my thoughts together in a way to give the book the justice it deserves.

Happy reading!

Like a lot of others, I loved The Help. Glad to see you enjoyed Dreams of Joy too. I've read Lisa See before but only once... perhaps it's time I revisit her work!
