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.
I don't know if it my usual post-Christmas slump but I just haven't been able to concentrate on reading and haven't spent much time reading lately. It took me days to finish a book that should have only taken two at most. Thankfully I did finish a book this week and I signed up to participate in a read-a-thon as well.
This past week, I also posted my responses to the End of Year Book Survey. What were your favorites of 2012?
Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. The scenes between the hero and heroine are fantastic. It does have its flaws but I thought the love story was delightfully satisfying so I gave it 5 stars.
Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes
Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder (reread)
I really liked this book when I first read it last year but I never got around to reviewing it and with the sequel now released I thought I should reread Touch of Power first.
Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
I saw the movie this past weekend and thought it was amazing. I haven't read anything by Victor Hugo and I have to admit the length of this book is kind of intimidating for me but I am going to read it a little at a time.
What I might read next:
Scent of Magic by Maria V. Snyder
I am looking forward to reading Scent of Magic though I've heard it isn't as good as Touch of Power.
Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry
I've heard good things about this book so I hope I'll like it. The cover reminds me of Perfect Chemistry and similar books.
Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger
I hope this YA series will be as fun as the Parasol Protectorate books were. I want to know what she is going to do with those scissors! I had planned to start the year by reading this book but changed my mind and picked up other books instead. It won't be published till next month so I have a little time to read and review it still.
