Monday Blues and Reading!

This week I join Sheila for What are you reading Monday at
One Person's Journey thru Books.
Here is what I read last week,
Julie and Julia: My Year of Cooking Dangerously by Julie Powell
3 out of 5
Moonlight Road by Robyn Carr ~ A Virgin River Novel
4 out of 5
For this week I am planning on listening to
Nanny Returns by Emma McLaughlin
from Publishers Weekly
Nan revisits 721 Park, home of the moneyed but morally bankrupt Xs, and the boy she guiltily left behind in their inept care in this smart and sassy sequel to The Nanny Diaries. And though Nan has grown up a bit, married Harvard Hottie Ryan and traveled the world, the plight of the rich and stupid continues, as does Nan's new crusade to save former charge Grayer and his younger brother Stilton, renovate a crumbling East Harlem mansion and stick it out at a soulless Manhattan private school. Outcomes are deeply uncertain, though Nan is nothing if not a natural-born cheerleader: I know what I'm worth. Because I care for these kids, I do, right down to my toes, she says of her young charges in and out of school. There's still one fear, however—whether she'll ever be able to make the leap from nanny to mommy. McLaughlin and Kraus leave no dry eyes as they once again wield a razor-sharp wit that cuts down the most uppity mortals even as it lifts up their vulnerable children. You could safely bet your first born that this'll be another smash hit. (Dec.)

This Monday, I have put up a few of my Easter decorations that just happen to
have some blue to them..
I love decorating for this time of year. We have a lot of bunnies.
I think I picked most of the decorations up at Kohls.
I join Sally at Smiling Sally for this Meme.

I like how you give you rating after the books and a brief synopsis of the one you are reading. Your Ester decorations are adorable. I need to get mine out. :) If you have time, please stop by my Monday:

I loved the movie! I just finished Same Kind of Different as Me and loved it. Reading American Wife now--thinly veiled fiction about Laura Bush. Love your Easter decorations!
