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!
This past week I didn't have as much time to read or write reviews. With the long weekend ahead I may be able to read more this week.
Tuesday is the first meeting of the new book discussion group I'm starting at the library. I am excited and hope there is a good turnout. We will be deciding which book to read for September (either Someone Knows My Name by Laurence Hill or Girl in Translation by Jean Kwok) and coming up with books for October.
Jane by April Lindner
This was a creative modern retelling of Jane Eyre (ignore the historical looking cover) and I liked it though it did have a few flaws.
Trial by Fire by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
At first I didn't think I'd be able to get into this book but I ended up enjoying it as much as Raised By Wolves. I like it when there are surprises that I don't see coming!
Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay
The Other Countess by Eve Edwards
The Postmistress by Sarah Blake
I know you shouldn't judge a book by its cover but I have been wanting to read The Postmistress ever since I saw a picture of it in a review magazine. It has also received many positive reviews and I like it so far, Iris especially.
What I might read next:
Small Town Sinners by Melissa Walker
I really want to read this soon so I will make sure I get to it this week. I like that it is a YA book that tackles issues of religious beliefs.
The Borrower by Rebecca Makkai
I have heard good and bad things about this book so I am interested in finding out for myself. I like that the main character is a librarian and from the excerpt I read, I know it references a lot of children's books.
Bloodlines by Richelle Mead
I decided to buy this book after reading an excerpt of it. At first I wasn't even sure I wanted to read it but now I think I will enjoy it even if it isn't as good as the Vampire Academy series.
Uncommon Criminals by Ally Carter
I realized that I've had this book since June and I still haven't read it yet! I hope I will get to it this week.
Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson
My cousin's wife told me that this was an excellent book so I was thrilled when I found a copy available on the shelf at my library. It sounds like my kind of book and might make a good future pick for my book discussion group.
Shadows on the Moon by Zoe Marriott
I am super excited to read this Cinderella based fantasy but I've kept putting it off because of my massive TBR pile. I may not get to it this week but hopefully I'll be able to read it soon. It sounds amazing and I've enjoyed Zoe's other fantasy novels.
