Monday, Monday... What Are You Reading?


First, THANK YOU to Sheila at Book Journey! I won her anniversary giveaway and woke up this  morning to find a $20 Amazon gift card in my email! *dance* Woot!!






  • In the Belly of Jonah, by Sandra Brannan - This has been so well received and I'm excited to get a chance to read it. And this one is autographed! *squeals* Here's the first couple paragraphs: "A window cut into a girl's body sets off a desperate search for a serial killer with an artistic bent. Liv "Boots" Bergen is shocked when the body of a stunning college intern working in her Colorado limestone quarry is found on the shores of a nearby reservoir. Clues are scarce - except that the crime scene appears to be a macabre, intricately staged tableau."
  • Book of Days, by James L. Rubart - Although something I don't normally pick up, it's a Christian fiction book that definitely hooked me. Doesn't this sound different? "Young Cameron Vaux's mind is slipping. Memories of his wife, killed two years earlier in a car accident, are vanishing just as his dad predicted they would. Memories he knows he has to remember. His father tells Cameron that to save his mind he must find 'the book with all days in it' - the past and future record of every dole on earth." Something about it just drew me in.


Happy Reading,
Coffee and a Book Chick

  18. The Book of Jonah looks like a really great read, and I will be looking forward to your review of it. I am reading Housekeeping my Marilynne Robinson at the moment for book club, and am having quite a time with it. It's a bit of a struggle at this point.
