It's Monday - What are you reading and update?

Book Date now hosts It's Monday What Are Your Reading?  The meme that we use to share what we read this past week and what our plans are for the upcoming week.  It's a great way to see what others are reading and add to your own To Be Read List.

Book Summary

After suffering a mental breakdown that nearly destroyed her marriage, Nina Taylor works hard to maintain her tenuous hold on sanity and be a good mother to her two young daughters. Despite her best efforts, she questions the possibility of a full recovery. Single mom Deja Johnson struggles to overcome her troubled past and raise her young son. But her friendship with Nina brings more complications. What Deja is hiding could not only destroy relationships, but endanger lives. One traumatic night threatens to shatter Nina’s mind. With Deja’s help, she strives to maintain her mental balance. But as events spiral out of control, the women must find out if Nina is losing her sanity or if someone is plotting against her.

Book Club News

I joined a book club in late 2013, wrote a blog post to get feedback in 2015 and today I am happy to announce, I finally made the hard decision and left the book club.  The ladies were not happy but I stuck to my decision and it made it easier as the choice for the month wasn't one I had interest in.

I have picked up amazing books this year, only one was a 3 star but I'm choosing great books because I keep great notes from memes and blogging friends reviews.  Also, Amazon recommendations are 90% success.  I missed blogging and getting great recommendations from those with similar interest.  Comments made me think more about the book or my post, it has been great. There truly is to many books in the world to read what you don't want, right?  And then we have NetGalley that allows us to request new books of interest.  I am happy to get on the blogging journey, read often again.  I would love to get to a book a week again.

So blogging community, I know going and coming back is sometimes part of the journey but I really miss you when not here.  I can't wait to get back into continuous networking again.

Instagram Query

Are any of you on Instagram?  I have a Instagram page for my Yoga business but I think I may include a post a month on what I have read and network with other book lovers there also.  What do you think?

Thanks for visiting Tea Time with Marce


  1. Everything She Lost looks good. I'm backing away from my book club and have contemplated quitting - they want to read too many "sweet" books. I have IG but rarely use it.

  2. I understand about your decision to leave your book group. It's tough, I know, but I also understand about getting lots of your recommendations and feedback from your blog and others in the reading world. We'll be very happy to see anything you'd like to share and look forward to hearing about what you're reading.

    I keep thinking I ought to start a 'mystery book group' in the blogging world. LOL

  3. I've had no qualms about leaving book clubs I'm not enjoying. It seems like there are zillions of clubs all over -- if you don't like one, don't stay! If you feel like you want a club, look for a different one.

    Of course, I might be spoiled in Seattle; I'm within 15 miles of about ten libraries and they each seem to host one or two clubs a month. Plus groups through friends and online -- I like the SF goodreads group Sword and Laser which has a podcast but as it's online there's no pressure to read a book if they pick a stinker.

  4. At times I want to be part of a book club, but really don't want to "have" to read a book. Probably a good thing I haven't found a good fit yet.

  5. It looks like you’re reading some interesting books. Sorry that the book club didn’t work out. I’ve thought about joining one, but I don’t like reading on deadlines. I’m on Instagram, but I’m terrible at it. Have a great week!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  6. Your books look great. I like the story in your Harris book especially.

  7. I hope you get back to blogging more frequently. You always steer me towards some great reads. I’m on instagram. I post about books often. You totally should do it. Litsy is fun too.

  8. I always mean to post bookish pictures on IG but never remember to do so. Plus, I read so many e-galleys that taking a picture of my phone, iPad, or Kindle to show what I am reading doesn't make for pretty pictures. So I stick with the kids and the dogs. People like them better anyway! ;)
