What We're Reading

Bonnie and I welcome you to the seventh installment of What We're Reading.

I have read several great books this summer.  You can read my Summer Reading post here.

My two favorite books of the summer are:


You can read my post about Beneath a Marble Sky here, and you can read my post about Salting Roses here.

I know there are a few weeks left in summer, but once your kids are back in school, it is over.  I am looking forward to reading The Poet of Tolstoy Park by Sonny Brewer for next week's book club meeting.  I hear it is fantastic!

What are your favorite books you've read this summer?  Bonnie and I would like to know!  Please link a new or older book post below.

I am heading to Tuscaloosa in a couple of hours for Sorority Rush Bid Day.  I cannot wait to see Shanley Belle and meet her new pledge sisters!  *Roll Tide*

I look forward to reading your posts late this evening. 

Until next time...

Happy Reading!
Ricki Jill


  1. I really enjoyed "Beneath a Marble Sky" that I read over Christmas. I haven't picked up "Salting Roses" yet but it's on my list. Thinking about you! Hope this weekend goes well!

  2. I nearly forgot, but calling by Maggie's book Review blog reminded me this morning! Great review for The Paris Wife yesterday Ricki and I will pop off to read your other reviews once I have linked. Have a great weekend.

  3. I think there might be a problem? My link does not show so I resubmitted only to be told it already exists. :(

  4. Thanks for hosting the party. I'm always looking for a book to add to my "must read" list.

  5. Hi Ricki Jill
    Will look up the two you reviewed this month, they sound good.
    I too had trouble linking but it worked fine the second time.
    Have fun!

  6. I have read Salty Roses, really enjoyed it thanks to your recommendation. Have a great trip and contragulations to you and Shanley Belle! Roll Tide!

  7. I'm so excited for Shanley! Today is a huge day :)

  8. I hope you're having a wonderful day, my friend! I'm so happy to be linked up! Thanks! ♥

  9. I remember sorority rush days. What fun! Hope you have a wonderful trip!


  10. I finally remembered! I hope I'm not too late for the party. :)

    I remember Janna's (my daughter) rush week. She was so excited! I never did a sorority so I was almost as excited as she was. :) Enjoy the moment! :)
