It's Monday, What Are You Reading (100)

It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a fun weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey where we share what we've read and reviewed over the past week and what we plan to read next.

Books read:

I am currently rereading the Gallagher Girls series before reading the newest book. It was fun rediscovering my enjoyment of the books. 

I had a feeling I was going to like Grave Mercy and it did not disappoint! I liked the historical feel and the mystery as much as the romance. 

It was interesting to reread this book as it is Cammie's introduction to Zach and Blackthorne. 

I'd forgotten some of what happens in this book so I'm glad I reread it too. This is the book where the series starts to get a little more serious and darker.

This was a moving and disturbing novel about the genocide in Rwanda told from the perspective of a young man who hopes to become an Olympic athlete even though there are many obstacles since he is Tutsi.

Books reviewed:

The Flight of Gemma Hardy by Margot Livesey

Currently reading:

The House at Riverton by Kate Morton has been on my TBR list for years but sadly I do not find it all that compelling of a read so far. Unfortunately it is a book group pick and our discussion is Tuesday! 

I have been listening to this in my car and it is excellent! I have the hardcover book but something about hearing Conor Grennan read his story makes it that much better.

I just started this one on my Kindle and truthfully I'd rather reread this than read the Kate Morton book!

What I plan to read next:

I was so excited about attending the Ally Carter luncheon at PLA and didn't even know we'd get a copy of Out of Sight, Out of Time or that she'd be signing the books! Of course she was really nice even though I was kind of incoherent when I met her. 

I hope to read this soon as I've heard really good things about it. I've always been a fan of Robin Hood...

I'm not so sure about this one but it is Jodi Picoult so I think I should give it a try...


  1. The Gallaghar Girls series looks like a lot of fun. I have seen them around but never quite realized how many there were!

    I have heard such amazing things about Grave Mercy and Lone Wolf- I think you are gonig to have a fantastic reading week! :D

    Here is my Monday post:

  2. The Jodi Picoult book is on lots of blogs. Await what you think of this one.

  3. Oh my gosh... so many great books. I want to read that one about Rwanda! I noticed this is your 100th MWAYR post! Congrats!!!

  4. Grave Mercy looks really good! I don't think I have read Picoult but this one looks interesting. Scarlet looks interesting too. Enjoy your week.

  5. I have only read the first Gallagher Girls book but I have at least a couple more on my Kindle. I have also pre-ordered Grave Mercy and can't wait to read it. Have a great week!

  6. Lone Wolf sounds really good. Enjoy your books!

    My Monday post is here

  7. Thanks for visiting my blog Christina and for the good wishes; much appreciated!
    Running the Rift interests me, sounds emotional and intense. I picked up Lone Wolf a few weeks ago cause I'm a huge Jodi Picoult fan but a friend has just finished it and was very disappointed so I think I'll wait and see what you think lol

    Have a great week and happy reading :)

  8. Congrats on your 100th post of this meme! I think that's really cool.

    Bummer about the Kate Morton book; her work has been on my tbr-list so I really only want to hear good things about it. Hope it either picks up or you just chuck it to enjoy the Ally Carter amazingness :)

  9. The Rwanda one has a great cover. I think I'd like to read it, but chances it will be a little harrowing.
    I use to love Jodi Piccoult but have found the last couple a bit disappointing - I get very frustrated with her mother characters! I know I'll read this one, but I've stop buying them, happy to wait for the library copy to become available! You can check out my Monday here

  10. Sorry your group read isn't turning out well.

    My favorite read this week was the audio version of Shutter Island. Please come see what else I'm reading.

  11. The Gallagher Girls books look really good! Hope you have a great reading week! Here's my link:

  12. I'm so excited for Grave Mercy (can't wait to read your thoughts on it.) I've never read the Gallagher Girls series but they seem to be quite popular, I'll have to check them out.

    My Wrapup

  13. I just brought Scarlet home today. Looks good.

  14. My aunt has recommended Kate Morton to me several times, but the one time I picked up The Forgotten Garden, I was just busy and didn't have the concentration to get into it. I'll try her again soon, I'm sure. It's good to know Little Princes is good on audio! I'm pretty sure that's one my library has. Enjoy your week!

  15. I don't think I've read the Gallagher Girls series - they look fun! I'll have to try the books. I also want to read Running the Rift. Heard so much about it.
