It's Monday, What Are You Reading (58)

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 get much reading done this week but I did try! I am still behind on reviews but hopefully I'll get caught up this week. I have the day off on Friday so I might devote some time to that.

Favorite book I read this week: Raised by Wolves by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

Books finished:

Kat, Incorrigible by Stephanie Burgis

This was a cute middle grade book with a spunky young heroine, magic, humor and it's set in Regency England. My review will be up later this week.

Raised by Wolves by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

I've read some mixed reviews of this one but I really liked this take on the werewolf myth and the pack dynamics. I can't wait to read the sequel, Trial By Fire.

Books reviewed:

Ten Miles Past Normal by Frances O'Roark Dowell

One of my favorite books of the year so far. A fantastic YA coming-of-age tale.

Pemberley Ranch by Jack Caldwell

Pride and Prejudice in post-Civil War Texas!

Currently reading:

The Vespertine by Saundra Mitchell

I'm reading an e-ARC of this for NetGalley which means I can only read it on my laptop. I will hopefully finish it before the time runs out!

What I plan to read next:

Skipping a Beat by Sarah Pekkanen

I loved The Opposite of Me so I am hopeful that I will love this one too. I like that this book is about a married couple and the ups and downs of married life.

Tyger Tyger by Kersten Hamilton

I've read some rave reviews of Tyger Tyger so I am looking forward to finally starting this one.

Silent in the Sanctuary by Deanna Raybourn

Silent in the Grave was a fantastic historical mystery and I hope this sequel will live up to it.

Babe in Boyland by Jody Gehrman

This sounds like a fun retelling of Twelfth Night. The premise reminds me a lot of the Amanda Bynes movie She's The Man, which I thought was really cute.

What does your reading week look like?


  1. You had a really good reading week! I have read and enjoyed most of the books you list. I'll have to add Babes in Boyland to my Media Center order. I think some of my students would love it. I really want to read Silent in the Grave but the stack of books I need to review is just too high right now. Have a great week.

  2. Have a great reading week. I looked Raised by Wolves over at the library, but did not bring it home. The Lady Julia Gray series is great.

  3. I really need to get started on the Lady Julia Gray series. I've heard lots of good things about it! Glad you liked Kat, Incorrigible too. Pemberley Ranch sounds intriguing. I'll be looking for your review of it!

  4. I loved The Vespertine ( I love historical) I hope you like it, aww I wish you didn't have to read it on your laptops tho :(

    Thanks for stopping by!

  5. You will love Skipping A Beat! I know it :) I loved it more than Opposite Of Me.

    I think Kat,Incorrigible looks great too!

  6. I can't wait to (eventually) read Ten Miles Past Normal! It's getting a lot of hype, I noticed. I've read her other book, The Secret Language of Girls, and didn't like it as much but hopefully this one will be better.

    You had such a good week! Here's how mine went:

  7. You had an excellent week and another lined up, enjoy your books. have a lovely week. My Monday:

  8. Pemberley Ranch sounds really interesting!

    Silent in the Sanctuary is pretty good too - I have a hard time deciding if I like it better than Silent in the Grave or not. I love Lady Julia :)

    The Vespertine is sitting on my Kindle...I need to read it soon too!

  9. You've had a great week reading-wise, from the looks of it. :) I'm really looking forward to reading The Vespertine and Tyger, Tyger. Here is my contribution to It's Monday: Starting the Next Chapter I hope you have a great week!

  10. A tween regency?

    I'm on Spring Break. Will I find the balance between reading for fun and reading for my project? Come see .

  11. I really enjoyed your review on Miles from Ordinary and Pemberly Ranch. I will be looking forward to your review of Vespertine, which is a book I am hoping to read someday. Have a great week and enjoy all your books!

  12. Coincidence! I just saw a review of Ten Miles Past Normal at

    Looks like an interesting book.

    Have fun this week.

  13. Tyger Tyger and Raised by Wolves were both awesome! I'm planning to read Vespertine this week too. Happy reading!
