It's Monday! What Are You Reading?!

"It's Monday! What Are You Reading?" is a weekly meme hosted by Book Journey where we share what we're reading and our goals for the week.

What I Read Last Week ...

What I'm Reading Now ...


What I Hope to Read This Week ...

That's what I'm hoping to read this week. What are you reading?


  1. Escape from Alcatraz looks really good. I didn't think any person could escape from there. I see it's an audio too. Isn't Alcatraz closed now? Even the name seems a bit spooky and dreary. There was once a movie named Birdman from Alcatraz. I think Burt Lancaster played in the movie.I might have that title wrong. I'm going to check the library for this one.Where is my interest coming from?? I don't know. Strange.
    I love the Christian fiction Quilt series. I've read about three. Need to catch up. Also want to read Wonder. You have a good reading week ahead. Have fun.

    1. Escape from Alcatraz is very different than most of what I read/listen to. It's a historical account of how Alcatraz came to be and is now talking about some of the more famous prisoners who resided there. I'm assuming we're going to get to a couple of the escape attempts soon. Can't remember if any of them were successful or not.

      If I recall correctly, I believe Birdman from Alcatraz is based on a true story. I haven't watched it before, but it's on my list. :)

      You are right that Alcatraz is no longer a prison. However, it's now a tourist attraction. Hubs and I visited a couple of years ago and it's fascinating. That may be why I'm enjoying the book so much. (I will say that if you ever visit, it's a creepy place. We went at night and it was almost spooky!)

      If you decide to read this one, I'd love to know what you think!

  2. Still reading Becky's latest but am next, am hoping to read Nancy Mehl's as well as Susan's (which I am stoked about!). Looks like you've had/have some fabulous reads. :)

    1. Oh man, oh man! Becky's latest is AMAZING!! And I cannot WAIT to read Susan's newest. Seriously, I love these family/sibling series. Hope you enjoy both of these!

  3. I am catching up on a cozy series because the author is visiting my blog next week :)

    Hope you have a great week!


I love comments! Thanks for letting me know what you think!
