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.
After an incredibly stressful week, I was relieved to make it to the weekend! I only finished one book last week (First Lady) and the rest of the books on my list are from the time I was on blogging hiatus while I worked on my presentation for work. Thankfully it went really well and this week should be much quieter.
Only the Good Spy Young by Ally Carter
I had fun rereading these books before reading the new book in the Gallagher Girls series. It was nice to realize that even though I knew what happened, the books were still enjoyable. I'd actually forgotten some things too.
Out of Sight, Out of Time by Ally Carter
This is definitely a darker book in the series and it shed some light on various secrets. It was also frustrating to read at first, kind of like Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix was.
Little Princes by Conor Grennan
This was an amazing book and I'm so glad I listened to the audio version! I will have my review up later this week.
Home Front by Kristin Hannah
I was surprised by how much I liked this book. I'd tried one other book by her last year but couldn't get into it (Between Sisters). I may have to check out some other Kristin Hannah books sometime. It kind of reminded me of Jodi Picoult.
First Lady by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
This was a fun diversion though I rolled my eyes through parts of it at the end. The writing style reminded me of Jennifer Crusie when it was good.
Ripper by Amy Carol Reeves
Slide by Jill Hathaway
Timeless by Gail Carriger
Some of the books I might read:
This Saturday, I will be participating in the Dewey Readathon and I hope to make a dent in my ever expanding TBR pile.
The Orchid House by Lucinda Riley
Spell Bound by Rachel Hawkins
The Descendants by Kaui Hart Hemmings
I just saw the movie and it was really good though I thought some of the language was gratuitous. The acting was superb, especially by George Clooney.
One For the Money by Janet Evanovich
I want to read this before I watch the movie next month when it is released on DVD. Though the movie got bad reviews, the book looks really funny and exactly what I'm in the mood for.
