What I'm Reading 5.25.15


Hello, readers! Happy Memorial Day! Please remember those who sacrificed their lives so we could have freedom to read the books we want, go to barbecues, and visit with friends and family.  

I have felt under the weather most of the week and did not get nearly as much reading done as last week.  I read just under 200 pages. Hoping for a better bookish week this week.

What did you read this week?  Tell me about it!

At the Water's Edge by Sara Gruen
*For Review from Publisher and Net Galley*
This Week: 39-48%

 The Haunting of Sunshine Girl by Paige McKenzie
Goodreads Link
This Week: 5-13%

Guyana by Elise Turcotte, Translated by Rhonda Mullins
