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.
Yesterday I participated in the Dewey Read-a-Thon so I was able to read more than I normally do this past week. I had a good week and felt like I accomplished a lot at work and with my reading. I even wrote several reviews this morning after a long dry spell. Now if I could just get caught up on the cleaning...
Slide by Jill Hathaway
This was an interesting suspense novel that reminded me of Wake by Lisa McMann and The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting.
Timeless by Gail Carriger
Timeless is a good conclusion to the Parasol Protectorate series though it fails to live up to the brilliance of the early books. I think it does a good job of setting up the spin-off series, The Parasol Protectorate Abroad.
Hissy Fit by Mary Kay Andrews
I checked this out on a whim from my library's e-book collection. It was funny and I loved the Southern setting. I've only read one other book by Mary Kay Andrews but I will have to try more. Hissy Fit was the first book I read in the read-a-thon and it was perfect for that kind of thing.
The Backup Plan by Sherryl Woods
I also found this on the library's e-book site and read it for the read-a-thon. I don't know if I will read the rest of the books in the series but it was also a fun book.
Spell Bound by Rachel Hawkins
This was a really good follow up to Demonglass. Like that book, Spell Bound had plenty of surprises in store for the reader. Sad to see the series come to an end :(
A Girl Named Digit by Annabel Monaghan
A Girl Named Digit reminded me a little bit of the Gallagher Girls books in a way. It was a good book to wrap up the read-a-thon.
The Springsweet by Saundra Mitchell
Little Princes by Conor Grennan
Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder
This is what I'm currently reading on my Kindle. I haven't gotten that far but I have a feeling that I'm going to like it at least as much as Poison Study.
The Witness by Nora Roberts
I am not so sure about this book. I have read only one other Nora Roberts book, Vision in White, which I didn't care for. She is known for her romantic suspense however and this did receive a starred review in Booklist. I guess it's time to find out what all the fuss is about! So far, it's not bad. I certainly like it more than the writing in Vision in White and the main character is definitely more interesting. I like that she is intelligent and capable and the added danger from the Russian Mafia makes it more of a page turner.
What I plan to read next:
The Unbearable Book Club For Unsinkable Girls by Julie Schumacher
This is a review book that will be published early next month so I hope to get to it soon. I love that it is about a book club even if the teens are unwilling participants. I look forward to seeing what books they read.
The List by Siobhan Vivian
I've heard good things about The List. The idea is so hurtful but I'm glad in a way that the book is told through the POV of both the "pretty" girls on the list and the "ugly" ones.
Starters by Lissa Price
I hate the cover but I am eager to give this dystopian novel a try. It has received a lot of positive reviews.
