It's (Not) Monday, What Are You Reading (70)

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 haven't had much time to blog lately and am visiting my parents for the long holiday weekend. Happy 4th of July to my American readers!

Books read:

Divergent by Veronica Roth

My favorite book of 2011 so far! Amazing! I can't believe I wasn't going to read this at first. I would have missed out on a fantastic reading experience.

Dolci di Love by Sarah-Kate Lynch

I loved that this was set in Italy. It was fun but not as good as it could have been.

Dark Road to Darjeeling by Deanna Raybourn

I really love this series. I think the books just get better and better.

Books reviewed:

Currently reading:

The Dark Enquiry by Deanna Raybourn
I am enjoying this mystery so far. Julia is a riot, especially when she thinks she can pull one over on Brisbane. It is cute that she keeps trying anyway :)

What I might read next:

What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen

I am a big fan of Sarah Dessen so I am sure I will like this one. I am intrigued by the idea of a character who keeps reinventing herself. I think eventually it will catch up to her.

Heartless by Gail Carriger

This is one of my favorite series so I will make every effort to read this one right away! Such a funny and intelligent heroine.

Shine, Coconut Moon by Neesha Meminger

I have been wanting to read this for awhile so I finally decided to check it out from the library.

The Girl in the Garden by Kamala Nair

This sounds really promising. It is set in India and inspired by The Secret Garden, one of my childhood favorites.

So that is what my week looks like.
What have you been reading?


  1. I've been reading a couple of steampunk graphic novels and now that you remind me of the Gail Carriger series I may check it out since I'm in the mood~

  2. I am glad you liked Divergent because I have it on my stack to read too. Heartless is on my radar for next week also along with some review books. My Monday Report is here. Happy reading!

  3. I have to check out Divergent - I like the look.
    I'll be reading Blameless this month ... then on to Heartless.
    Happy reading!

  4. Dolci di Love by Sarah-Kate Lynch sounds like fun - I am kind of sad to hear that it's not as good as it could be. I have the first 2 books in the Deanna Raybourn series. Can't wait to read them!

  5. Cool books! Have fun reading them! And yeah, I gess I'm the only one left that DIDN'T read Divergent! LOL

    Happu holiday!

  6. I loved Divergent! Glad you liked it as well. Have a fab week! See what I'm reading here and don't forget to link your book reviews on Read My Review, hosted on my blog.

  7. I have just taken note of the last one. I loved the secret garden. It was one of my favourites growing up. Used to read it over and over again and never tired of it. I have also been reading and enjoying books based in India recently so that's another reason for me to take note. Hope you enjoy it.

  8. Great line-up of titles, can't wait to read Divergent and I've also got What happened To Goodybe on my bookshelf. Have a lovely time with your family and happy reading :)

  9. Too bad that Dolci di Love was not looked good.

    Have a great holiday and enjoy your reading.


  10. The cover of 'The Girl in the Garden' looks beautiful! I think I may have to read it just because of the cover.

    Happy 4th of July!!!
    'It's Monday! What Are You Reading?'

  11. That's a nice list. I'll have to read Divergent soon.

    I hope you have a nice reading week.

  12. I love Carriger's series too and cannot wait to red this one either, but did not know it was out already. I am hitting Barnes and Noble today so I can read it now. Have a great week!

  13. Yay, you got Heartless! I hope it's good! I'm not loving this cover! ;)

  14. I have heard really great things about Divergent. It's on my list to read!

  15. Gotta love when a book surprises you! I really need to get reading Gail's series, that good eh?

  16. The Girl In the Garden was lovely, I do hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Have a wonderful week and happy reading.
    My Monday:

  17. Enjoy your books. My reading list consists of a lot of picture books read with my children, as well as the manga I've been reading with my oldest. Come see what I read.
