It's Monday, What Are You Reading (55)


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!

I didn't read as many books this week as I'd hoped to due to a sudden illness. While I am much better now, I don't think I will have as much time to read this week either.

Favorite book read this week: Prom and Prejudice by Elizabeth Eulberg



Books finished:

Prom and Prejudice by Elizabeth Eulberg

This was a really cute retelling of Pride and Prejudice. I loved that the main character is a pianist.

Madame Tussaud by Michelle Moran

I liked this book but it wasn't as good as I'd hoped. Marie isn't always a likeable character. My sister is currently reading the book and doesn't have the same prior knowledge of the French Revolution that I do so she finds it somewhat confusing because of all the many different names to keep track of. There is a list of characters/historical figures at the front of the book that it would be worth paying attention to.

Books reviewed:

Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult

Desires of the Dead by Kimberly Derting

Currently reading:

Deadly Little Games by Laura Faria Stolarz

Ten Miles Past Normal by Frances O'Roark Dowell

What I might read next:

The Sari Shop Widow by Shobhan Bantwal


Out for Blood by Alyxandra Harvey


What does your reading week look like?

  5. I am picking up Prom and Prejudice from the school book fair this week and am excited to read it. Glad you liked it so much, makes me want it even more. I will be looking forward to your reviews on Deadly Little Games and Miles from Ordinary, both titles are of interest to me too. Have a great week!
