It's Monday, What Are You Reading (65)

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 only managed to finish one book this week. I had hoped to get more reading done this weekend (especially since I finally got my Kindle!) but I was too busy having fun with my family :)

I'd also planned to participate more in Armchair BEA but I just participated on one day. Check out my post on my Best Books of 2011 So Far

Books finished:

Silent in the Sanctuary by Deanna Raybourn

I really liked this mystery though I wanted to growl at Brisbane at times. There is nothing more fun than a murder mystery where people are trapped in a house with the killer...

Books reviewed:

Just Like Heaven by Julia Quinn

Gone With a Handsomer Man by Michael Lee West

Currently reading:

Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini

I am still frustrated by this book. It is on my Kindle now so maybe I will get through it soon but if things don't get better, I may just give up.

My Name is Mary Sutter by Robin Oliveira

I really like this book so far (I'm on the third chapter). Mary is so determined and I hope she succeeds and becomes a doctor. She certainly deserves it!

What I plan to read next:

Silent on the Moor by Deanna Raybourn

I've actually already started reading this on my Kindle even though I need to try to finish Starcrossed. I'd honestly rather read Silent on the Moor. I need to finish this one and Dark Road to Darjeeling in the next two weeks.

The Shadowy Horses by Susanna Kearsley

I don't know if I will get to read this before I have to send it back. I have too many other books I have to read for review.

Divergent by Veronica Roth

Perhaps I am being overly ambitious by listing a third book, especially one so thick. I am dying to try this though. I've heard so many good things about it.

So that's what my reading week looks like.

What have you been reading?

Note: Last week I had problems with leaving comments on Blogger blogs (the ones where the comments are embedded like on mine). It makes me sign in and then says I am anonymous and I can't leave comments. Hopefully that problem has been cleared up now but I haven't checked lately. I apologize if I am unable to leave a comment on your blog this week too.


  1. I can't wait to see what you think of STARCROSSED.
    And *gasp* DIVERGENT! Just finished it - completely mesmerizing and amazing.
    Have a good week!

  2. I have heard great things about My Name is Mary Sutter I look forward to your thoughts. Enjoy your reading and have a wonderful week. My Monday:

  3. OOH I want to read Divergent so badly! Have a great week!

  4. I'm not thrilled by this trend of retelling Greek mythology, so I didn't even try to get Starcrossed to be honest lol xD

    I have Divergent, I will read it sometime in July :)

    Happy reading!

  5. Family is important. The reading can wait. :)

    This coming week is my last week off before summer session. I have a few books I want to finish before school begins. Come see what they are.

  6. Looking forward to your review for Starcrossed. And excited for you to read Divergent.

  7. Glad you had a fun week with family, I only did the one post with Armchair BEA too. I've heard good things about Divergent, hope you enjoy it. Have a great week and happy reading :)

  8. I keep meaning to begin that Raybourn series. Your comment makes me even more impatient to begin it. Maybe this summer! My Monday Report is here. Have a great week!

  15. My Name is Mary Sutter sounds good from the reviews I have seen. Nice that you got to read and spend time with your family too.

  16. I need to do a Deanna Raybourn marathon to catch up to the new one coming out in July! Brisbane makes me pretty angry at times, but I can't help liking him at the same time :)

    Congrats on your Kindle, hope you love it as much as I love mine!
