It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at 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 is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list."

Oh dear, Disobedience only gets 7/10? That doesn't bode well for my book club read, does it?

Helen, maybe it was just me. Maybe it was too much like all the other books I've been reading. Maybe you'll like it. My 7/10 means it was a "good" book, just not excellent:

10 - Loved it!! Couldn't put it down!!
9 - Excellent!
8 - Very Good
7 - Good
6 - Above Average
5 - Average
