It's Monday, What Are You Reading (53)

It's Monday What Are You Reading? is a fun weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. I always enjoy seeing what other people have read and reviewed over the past week. It is also a great way to find new books to add to that ever-growing TBR list!

Books finished:

The Dark and Hollow Places by Carrie Ryan

I thought this was a darker book than the previous two but a fitting end to the series.

Mad Love by Suzanne Selfors

This was a cute and humorous story with quirky characters, a fun book for Valentine's Day.

Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult

I am still not sure what to make of this latest book by Jodi Picoult. I just finished it and am processing my thoughts. I will hopefully have a review for next week.
Books reviewed:
Mad Love by Suzanne Selfors
Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins
Currently reading:
Silent in the Grave by Deanna Raybourn

I am really enjoying this book and wondering why I never picked it up before. I was expecting it to be a traditional romance but it is actually an interesting mystery with only a little bit of romance so far and some cheeky humor.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

I've only just started this but I have a feeling it will be a favorite! I love the setting too :) I'm reading this one for review for Royal Reviews.

What I plan to read next:

The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley
I hope I get to read this one this week. It is overdue at the library. I know, how terrible for the librarian to have overdue books!

Madame Tussaud by Michelle Moran

I really hope I get to read this one this week. I loved Cleopatra's Daughter and I know that Michelle Moran brings a high level of historical detail as well as excellent character development to her books. This is a fascinating time period and Madame Tussaud was an interesting historical figure. I can't wait to find out more about her!

The Latte Rebellion by Sarah Jamila Stevenson

I probably won't get to The Latte Rebellion this week but I will definitely try. I have been wanting to read this for awhile too. So many books...


  1. I've read just the first book in the series by Carrie Ryan and I loved it! I've The Winter Sea on my TBR , which I plan to read soon. Madame Tussaud is on my wishlist.

  2. I finished Anna & the French Kiss last week and liked it lots. It was a really cute book.

  3. I love love love the Lady Julia Grey series, I'm so glad you're enjoying it! To me, the romance is really secondary, it is more about the mystery and female empowerment :)

    Have a fabulous week!

  4. I really liked The Winter Sea, Madame Tussaud is waiting for me and The Latte Rebellion looks fun! Have a wonderful week reading. My Monday:

  5. Oh! I really want to read The Latte Rebellion as well. I love the author to pieces! I really hope you enjoy it! Also, really jealous of you reading the new Carrie Ryan book!

    Have a fabulous reading week and if you get a second stop by There’s A Book! :)

  6. What a great group of books. I liked Anna and the French Kiss. I have Silent in the Grave and just have to get to it soon. I have heard so many good things about it. Have a great reading week!

  7. I need to read Sing You Home... it waits for me :)

  8. Love the cover of Mad Love. Didn't even know Piccoult had a new one out - will look out for your review. Check out my Monday here

  9. Enjoyed your review of Mad Love and cannot wait to hear your thoughts on Anna and the French Kiss and The Latte Rebellion, both were great reads. Have a wonderful week!

  10. I like Silent in the Grave and The Winter Sea. They seem like wonderful reads. Happy reading!

    Here's what I'm reading this week.

  11. The Latte Rebellion looks like fun...and I'm still awaiting my copy of Sing You Home.

    Hope you have a great week.

    Here's MY MONDAY MEMES post.

  12. I look forward to reading your review about Sing you's on my tbr list and I can't wait to read it.

    I haven't read anything by Michelle Moran yet, but have both Madame Tussaud and Cleopatra's Daughter on my tbr list. Have you read A Royal Likeness by Christine Trent - it's about an apprentice that works for Madame Tussaud...excellent book!

    My It's Monday post can be found here.

  13. I think Anna and the FK is universally loved. I'm pleasantly surprised by how many great reviews Mad Love has gotten.

  14. I adored Anna and the French Kiss. I hope you are loving it. I am looking forward to your review of The Winter Sea and The Latte Rebellion. BTW, your comment about overdue books and you being a librarian made me laugh. :)

  15. Both Mad Love and Anna and the French Kiss look sooo cute! I can't wait to read those! =D

  16. I see a bunch of my wishlist books in your post this week. I only finished three books because I was working on papers for school. Come see what I'm reading now.

  17. I finally managed to find a copy of The Winter Sea this week too. Yet to try Deanna Raybourn but it seems to be a very popular series.

    Happy reading!
