It's Monday 8/3! What Are You Reading?

Lots of audio last week again because I drove up to my mom's house in Connecticut to pick up my kids. Some good paper books, too!
  • I finished Building a House with My Husband by Rachel Simon and enjoyed it very much. I'll post a review this week.
  • I started Benny & Shrimp by Katarina Mazetti, and I like it very much - more than I expected to. It's a novel about finding love, originally written in Sweden.
  • In the car, I listened to I Love You, Beth Cooper by Larry Doyle and laughed out loud all the way to Connecticut! Hilarious novel about high school graduation night - I'm looking forward to seeing the movie now. I'll review this one this week, too.
  • The kids and I finished Freaky Monday by Mary Rodgers and Heather Hach. It was excellent, a great follow-up to the original Freaky Friday, with excellent reading by Jennifer Stone (who plays Harper on the Disney Channel hit Wizards of Waverly Place). My boys and I enjoyed it very much, but it will be especially appreciated by tween girls.
What are YOU reading this week?


  1. Glad to hear that you are enjoying Benny and Shrimp -- it is getting a lot of good buzz.

  2. I love you, Beth Cooper sounds so funny and I didn't know there was a sequel for Freaky Friday. Fun!
