It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

This great meme is hosted by Sheila at
Book Journey”.
It’s a great way to start the week and
find out what other bloggers are reading.
I would discuss how testing wen this past week, but it isn't really over yet.  I have 2 more days of proctoring the extended time (all day) testers before I can actually go back to my classroom and attempt to do some work.  
I had hoped to get a lot of reading done since I was proctoring tests all week, but the poor kids needed help with the stupid online testing tools, so I was constantly running around while trying to be unobtrusive.  I feel a rant coming on, so I think I'll change the subject now., what are you reading this week?
I plan on finishing up with Janet Evanovich's Three to Get Deadly.  (Yes, I had to put it down for awhile to get some other books read for reviews.)  It's absolutely hilarious and I've actually missed hanging out with the crazy characters.  Hopefully the testers this week won't need as much help and I can get sucked back into the story.   I still haven't seen the movie for the first book, but I've also been told to wait for it on TV.  (That's kind of depressing since I see so much potential for this series.  Hopefully those others were wrong.  Now, I just have to figure out where I can still watch it.)

I want to start Luci Swindoll's Simple Secrets to a Happy Life.  I really enjoyed her other book Doing Life Differently, so I'm really excited to be reading this one now.   Her words were a very powerful and soothing balm to my restless spirit as she wrote about how God has manifested himself in her life in unexpected ways.  I think the reason why I feel such a kinship with Luci  is because she is single too, but hasn't let that stop her from living her life.  I can't wait to read what little nuggets of truth and wisdom she shares in this book. 
I am also have an ARC of  Inescapable by Nancy Mehl.  I love suspense books and this one caught my eye because it features Mennonites.  Somehow I have never really put mystery and Mennonite together, so this should be a great combination.   

What are you reading this week?  Anything interesting that I should add to my list?  Have a great Monday!  (Wait, is that an oxymoron?)

I'm not sure what I'm reading next. I have a huge stack to choose from (see my blog) so I'm certain I'll come up with something.

I am planning on starting the Stephanie Plum series soon - I have the first book sitting on my bookshelf and it keeps calling to me. I just have a bunch of library and reviews books that I need to get to first.

Have a great week!

I heard Luci Swindoll speak at a conference, but I haven't had the chance to read any of her books yet because my library didn't have any of them. Boo.
Have a great week!
