It's Monday, What Are You Reading (145)

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 only finished two books this past week but I am hoping to do a little more reading this week. Of course I will be spending the weekend with family for Mother's Day so I may not get as much reading accomplished. I have some review books and library books that I hope to get to soon.

Books read:

The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan (reread)

The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan (reread)

Books reviewed:

A Spear of Summer Grass by Deanna Raybourn

Currently reading:

Maid of Secrets by Jennifer McGowan

So far I like this book. It is part historical fiction and part spy novel. I wouldn't want to be in Meg's shoes!

What I plan to read next:

Nantucket Blue by Leila Howland

School Spirits by Rachel Hawkins

I liked Hex Hall and I am interested in this book about Sophie's young cousin Izzie. I've heard good things about it. I hope it will be funny like the other series.

Vanity Fare by Megan Caldwell

I think this book sounds like a fun, light and fluffy kind of read. Just what I'm in the mood for.  I'm also in the mood for cupcakes but I can't have them :( I guess I will just have to read about them instead!

A Perfect Proposal by Katie Fforde

I've never read any books by Katie Fforde but this sounds like a fun chick lit novel and I've heard good things about it.


  1. I only read one book last week :( here's hoping we both read more this week. You've got some great titles coming up!

  2. I started reading the Percy Jackson books but couldn't get past the first few chapters.I used to love mythology as a kid.

  3. I just learn there will be another Percy Jackson movie soon - I am looking forward to it!
    The Girl's Guide to Love and Supper Clubs sounds cute!

    Have a fab reading week!

  4. Katie Fforde is a real light read but its the Raybourn book that I must look out for. Love her books.

  5. I love Katie Fforde, and I'm curious about her book, I need to stalk you for your review later ;)

    School Spirits seems pretty good as well, I hope you'll enjoy all the books your reading this week.

    Here's my It's Monday!... post for this week.

  6. Spring always makes me want to pick up fun fluffy books - The Girls' Guide to Love and Supper Club looks perfect! I will have to read it.

  7. You had a good week. I still haven't read past the first book in the Percy Jackson series. I am expecting my copy of Maid of Secrets to arrive this week. Come see what I read and happy reading!

  8. I have Nantucket Blue coming up too-I hope to read it at the beach as I think that will make a perfect setting.

    Glad to hear Maid of Secrets is going well-I'm really looking forward to checking it out.

  9. I love the Percy Jackson students are obsessed! I also really enjoyed Nantucket Blue. I hope you do as well! Happy Reading!

  10. The Percy Jackson books look so good. My only experience with them so far was watching the first movie, which I enjoyed, so I really want to get to reading them.

  11. Nantucket Blue sounds like a great summer read!

  12. MoS sounds fun - part historical, part spy novel? Awesome!

    School Spirits seems fabulous too. Hope you enjoy everything! :D

  13. I read Paradise Fields by Katie Fforde several years ago and I remember enjoying it. Have a good week!

  14. I'm about ready to pick another Riordan's been a couple of months since I read one! I'm looking forward to the Sea of Monsters movie this summer :)
