Thanks so much for stopping by! That's what I accomplished (reading-wise) this week. What about you?


  1. Hey Mel!
    Wow, that's quite a lineup of good reads you're working on! I still believe your super power is fast reading because you cover so much so quickly :)

    Looking forward to your comments on every book, but I'm especially curious about You Don't Know Me, Offworld, and A Light in the Window and how they appeal to you (if you have time for them) *smile* I've only read Offworld so far.

    I commented on 3 ebooks after going through 6 ebooks (the other three were not for me so didn't mention them) this week and I've been trying to win books on facebook.

    Thanks for all the giveaways and congrats to the winners :) Have a great weekend, Mel, and big time hugs to you!

    1. Hi Kara! Superpower? LOL! I like the sound of that. :P

      I just finished You Don't Know Me (it was really good) and will be posting my review next week. Offworld is probably the book I'm MOST looking forward to reading this week because I've wanted to read it for months, but haven't been able to fit it in my reading schedule. :( I hope I can get to it this week!

      I hope you win some books on Facebook this week! :)

      Thanks for commenting, Kara! :)

  2. I signed up for the Tyndall reward program with your code. I also follow you.

  3. Happy weekend Melanie! I finished one book this week. It was a non-fiction book. I'm working on Christy by Catherine Marshall. An oldie but one of my favorite all-time books. Have you ever read it? It is my last book to fulfill one of the challenges I joined this year. The Contentment Reading Challenge. I still have to finish my "Why Buy the Cow" challenge. That is where you read books that you downloaded for free onto your Kindle or other ereader. Unfortunately book galley's don't count. Just the ones that were free from retailers. I still have a ways to go on that challenge so don't know if I will finish by the end of December. I am going to try and devote the month of November to reading books on my Kindle though so maybe. :) Have a great weekend! And look at you almost finished with your Goodreads challenge! Go you!! I'm currently 8 books behind. Ack!

    1. I can't believe I'm almost done with my Goodreads reading challenge! :) I was able to read a lot more books this year than I had thought possible.

      Ugh. I'm doing horrible with the Contentment Reading Challenge - I've only reread one book this year. :/

      I hope you are able to complete all of your reading goals. :)

  4. Good morning I really like your line-up of books ones read and ones to read. many authors I read here and love to read your comments. thanks for sharing both your thoughts and the books.

  5. Have also read A.L.S this week. Loved it!
    I'm currently reading Deadly Pursuit by Irene Hannon.

    Great weekend wrap up, Melanie. Thank you for sharing and congrats winners!

    Happy weekeend and happy reading! :-)

    1. So glad you loved ALS - I did too!

      Oh! Deadly Pursuit is a GREAT book! I hope you are enjoying it! :)
