It's Monday, What Are You Reading (134)

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 liked this prequel novella and was glad to receive an e-ARC of Mila 2.0 for review which I can't wait to start.

Summerset Abbey by T.J. Brown

I thought this book was pretty good in spite of its flaws. Though it is published for adults, I think it works well as a YA historical novel too.

Books reviewed:

Insurgent by Veronica Roth
Summerset Abbey by T.J. Brown

Currently reading:

Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger

I am enjoying this book so far and hope to finish it soon. It even includes some familiar characters from the Parasol Protectorate series when they were young.

What I plan to read next:

A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving (reread)

This is a book discussion book that I need to reread before next Tuesday. It has been years since I first read it and I don't remember very much of it but I think I liked it...


  1. Parasol Protectorate characters from when they were younger?!?! Now I know I have to read Etiquette & Espionage! Well, I should probably finish the Parasol Protectorate first... Enjoy your week!

  2. Have a great reading week!

  3. A Prayer for Owen Meany is one of my favorite books ever!! Summerset Abbey is one I have been thinking about reading, I will have to check it out. :) Have a great week!

    Also, Downton Abbey right now!! It is has been a roller coaster ride!

  4. Interested in your thoughts about The Christian World of the Hobbit by Devin Brown; I know my church had a discussion night when the movie came out but I wasn't able to attend and I read the book before I was a Christian so I don't really remember much.

  5. Enjoyed your review for Insurgent. I didn't realise Owen Meany was such a chunkster, I won't get to it anytime soon.
    Have a great week and happy reading :)

  6. Like the cover of the Summerset Abbey book. With Downton around anything to do with Abbey is a favourite of mine!

  7. I **just** started the Parasol Protectorate series.

    I plan to make 2013 my year of reading from my own bookshelves. Please come see what I'm currently reading.

  8. I'm curious about A Prayer for Owen Meany...enjoy your reads, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  9. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on Etiquette and Espionage...that one is definitely on my TBR list. Enjoy your books!

  10. I have Summerset Abbey on my tbr list...I'll be checking out your review of it after this.

    Have a great week!
