Currently I'm reading

Eternal on the Water by Joseph Monniger

Wonderful writing - a love story and so much more. The first of my mystery books from the library and although the cover may have tempted me it's not really the sort of book I would normally choose but it's proving to be s beautiful reading experience.

This week the plan is to read at least these two as well.......maybe more if life takes a quieter turn.

What are you reading?


  1. Cool! I've never heard of Eternal on the Water, but I'm glad it's turning out to be a keeper. Good writing is always welcome! Have a great week.

  2. I have been wanting to read Remarkable Creatures. I adored Eternal on the water. Have a great week reading. My Monday:

  3. Somebody had recommended Eternal On The Water to me and I forgot about it until I seen it here. I may need to search for that one.

  4. I absolutely loved Eternal on the Water, one of my favourite reads for 2010. Needed a box of tissues though ... so beautiful.
    Happy reading :-)

  5. I'm so happy to see you're enjoying Eternal on the Water. It's on my TBR list.

  6. I have added Eternal on the Water to my wish list!!


  7. Teddyree/Jennifer - I finished it last night and the tissues were needed. Is going to be one of my favourites for year too.

    Emidy - I wish I could keep it but it's a library book.

    Mary, Sheila, Lori - I hope you'll readit soon. A beautiful book.

  8. I've been so used to looking at the cover of the US version of Eternal on the Water, that for a moment I was wondering why the name sounded familiar. I've heard good things about the book, so I''ll be looking for your review.

  9. I never did really tolerate romance books. I tend to get all teary eyed and feel mushy all of a sudden. But since you guys love the Eternal on the Water, I may have to look into that. I'm starting the Millennium Series this week and re-reading White Oleander. :)

  10. I really like the cover of Eternal on the Water. Hope the insides are just as good. Have a fun week. :)

  11. Eternal on the Water was purchase made based on Teddyree's review, and I really do need to read it.

    I am greatly intrigued by the cover of Faithful Place. I want to know what you think about it.

    The Bones of Avalon looks interesting as well, and the cover seems similar to Faithful Place. I think it is the coloring and the red dots (splatters).

    I hope you enjoy your week.
