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 had a great time with my family in Canada last week and I even found some time to read. Of course most of these books were read after I got back! I still haven't completely unpacked because I've been busy reading instead...
45 Pounds (More or Less) by K.A. Barson
Blackberry Summer by RaeAnne Thayne
I really enjoyed this series to my surprise. This first book introduces the main families in the town, the Angel of Hope (an anonymous person or persons who does good deeds in the town) and a tragedy that affects the rest of the series. It is still a light romance though even with the sad parts.
Woodrose Mountain by RaeAnne Thayne
This is my second favorite book in the series. I really liked the secondary characters in this one too and the resolution of some things from the first book.
Sweet Laurel Falls by RaeAnne Thayne
This is my favorite book in the series. It is also my favorite cover. If you were a fan of Lorelai and Chris from Gilmore Girls and always wished they'd gotten back together (I did not because Luke Danes is the perfect man), you might like this book!
Currant Creek Valley by RaeAnne Thayne
This book has some sweet and heart tugging moments too but I was frustrated with the heroine at times.
Willowleaf Lane by RaeAnne Thayne
While not the best book in the series, I still enjoyed this book because I could relate in some ways to the main character.
And the Miss Ran Away With the Rake by Elizabeth Boyle
I read this on a whim and it was really enjoyable until the end when I felt a little letdown. I do plan to pick up the first book in the series too. You've Got Mail is one of my favorite movies and this book uses a similar device with the couple exchanging letters anonymously and falling in love but loathing each other in real life.
Ladies' Night by Mary Kay Andrews
I like this one so far though I know that Grace is in for a world of hurt before things become better for her. I usually enjoy Mary Kay Andrews's books so I have high hopes...
What I plan to read next:
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
I am really excited about this book. I've read some of it already and it is definitely entertaining and suspenseful so far.
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
This is a book group book for July and I have heard really good things about it. I can't wait to start. I also have another book by Rainbow Rowell for review (Fangirl) that I am looking forward to reading.
