It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


This weekly meme is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date.

I'm reading: 

Something from my bookshelf. In honour of the Christmas in July Read-a-Thon that ran on July 29th and 30th, this was my pick


AUTHOR: Fiona Harper
PUBLISHER: Mills & Boon
PUBLICATION DATE: November 1, 2013
FORMAT: Paperback
LENGTH: 384 pages
GENRE: Holiday/Christmas
ISBN: 9780263910292
Family-orientated and Christmas-dinner cook extraordinaire Juliet is trying to keep it together in the wake of her marriage breakdown two Christmases ago, but the cracks are beginning to show.

Bright and vivacious Gemma was always the favourite daughter…So she has no qualms about leaving Christmas in her sister Juliet’s capable hands; and escaping the pressures of her glamorous job, and the festive madness by jetting off to somewhere warm.

When Gemma shirks responsibility once too many and announces she’s off to the Caribbean (again!); Juliet finally snaps. Gemma offers her sister the perfect solution - to swap Christmases: she’ll stay home and cook the turkey (how hard can it be?) and Juliet can fly off into the sun and have a restorative break.

In the midst of all the chaos, there’s Will, Juliet’s dishy neighbour who’s far too nice to float Gemma’s boat and may secretly harbour feelings for her sister; and Marco, the suave Italian in the villa next door, who has his own ideas about the best way to help Juliet unwind.

Will the sisters abandon caution and make this a Christmas
swap to remember?


I'm listening to:

Something from my bookshelf. I absolutely loved the first one in the series!


SERIES: The Book of Ivy, Book #2
AUTHOR: Amy Engel
NARRATOR: Taylor Meskimen
PUBLISHER: Listening Library
PUBLICATION DATE: November 3, 2015
FORMAT: Unabridged audiobook
LENGTH: 8 hrs and 20 mins
GENRE: Young Adult, Science Fiction/Dystopia
Ivy Westfall is beyond the fence and she is alone. Abandoned by her family and separated from Bishop Lattimer, Ivy must find a way to survive on her own in a land filled with countless dangers, both human and natural. She has traded a more civilized type of cruelty--forced marriages and murder plots--for the bare-knuckled brutality required to survive outside Westfall's borders.

But there is hope beyond the fence, as well. And when Bishop reappears in Ivy's life, she must decide if returning to Westfall to take a final stand for what she believes is right is worth losing everything she's fought for.

I just finished:


PUBLISHER: Random House Audio
PUBLICATION DATE: October 4, 2016
FORMAT: Unabridged audiobook
LENGTH: 5 hrs and 23 mins
GENRE: Romance/Contemporary, Holiday/Christmas
In a festive annual tradition, #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber returns with another original holiday novel full of romance and cheer. This time around, a plucky young woman clashes with a real-life Scrooge—her grouchy, arrogant, annoyingly handsome neighbor—and tries to get even the only way she knows how: by killing him with kindness.
