It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday!  Even though everyone officially start spreading the summer cheer after Memorial Day, TODAY I will start my summer reading plan.  I have a goal of reading at least 10 books this summer.  The following books are ones that I have currently started to read.  

1. and 2. Midnight books by Sister Souljah:

I have been trying to finish the first book since January, it's not that I am not enjoying the book, I just have trouble following the main character.  Even though his views are extremely different than mine, I just have trouble believing that he is this mature at the age of 14.  Also I was so crazy about her first book and waited so long for her to come out with these two books, I feel obligated to see what happens in both books.

3. Your Best Life NOW by Joel Osteen:

I read a chapter of this book a night.  I am currently loving this book.  I say a prayer before reading each chapter and every time I feel that I am getting a message after reading it.

4. How to Win and Influence People by Dale Carnegie:

I am currently interacting in a twitter book club and this is the first book.  Please stay tune to a future post about the book.

5. 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene:

Nothing to talk about here, just continuing with my "48 Laws of Power FRIDAYS".

6. Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin:

I saw a trailer of the movie and immediately fell in love with it and had to go see it!  However when  I found out that it was a book, I ran out and grabbed the book so that I could read it before going to see the movie.  This book is a quick read and look out for a review of it and the movie this week!!  

7. John Adams by David McCullough:

I am currently FOUR weeks behind on this book, my plan is to try to catch up in the next two weeks.  Stay tune for a post this Friday!

It's Monday and I'm not reading a darn thing. Hopefully I'll be back in the swing of things before the week ends.

I have Your Best Life NOW by Joel Osteen and How to Win and Influence People by Dale Carnegie. I haven't been moved to pick either of them up though.

You'll probably be finished with them before I am. Looking forward to the reviews.

Sometimes we just need a break from reading. Take your time and enjoy your week!
