It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a bookish meme hosted by Book Journey. It's where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It's a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list. So hop on over via the link above and join in...and leave a comment here so I can check out what you are reading.

Anne of Green Gables is absolutely my favorite book of all time - I loved reading the series when I was younger and have recently decided to reread them...I love Anne with an "e". Hope you enjoy it when you get a chance to read it.

Have a great week!

I have Anne on my TBR pile as well. I read it as a young person and loved it and can't wait to read it again.
