It's Monday, What Are You Reading (159)

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 didn't have as much time to read as I thought I would this past week. Lately I've been finishing 5 books a week but this time I only finished one that I worked on from Tuesday till this evening. I did spend the weekend visiting family which was a lot of fun. Maybe I'll have more time for reading this week.

Books reviewed:

The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas
Her Perfect Earl by Beth Pattillo

Books read:

The House of Hades by Rick Riordan

I thought this book was fantastic! I can't wait for the final book, The Blood of Olympus.

Currently reading:

I plan to make every effort to finish The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop and Cafe this week. We'll see how that goes. Last week my plans were derailed because I just had to read the new Percy Jackson book right away.

What I plan to read next:

Teatime for the Firefly by Shona Patel

I've already read a few chapters of this book and I really like it. I think I will learn a lot by reading it too. It is set in India in the 1940s so there is all this information about the political climate as well as the history of tea in Assam and what it was like to live on a tea plantation.


  1. The Simses cover looks luscious!

  2. I love it when a book shows up and forces a change of plans. I am that way with the latest J. D. Robb or Nora Roberts. Come see my Monday Report if you get a chance. Happy reading!

  3. I too read The House of Hades and totally loved it. Rated it 5 stars. Full of action and loved the humour and the wisdom shared.

  4. Ooh Teatime for the Firefly by Shona Patel looks really good-excited to read your thoughts on that as I may want to check it out for myself!

  5. I'm really looking forward to the new Percy Jackson movie being released soon!

    Have a great reading week

  6. Rick Riordan knows how to write. What reluctant reader could resist Lightning Thief? Glad to know his new series is just as good.

    Here's my It's Monday!

  7. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on Firefly and Blueberry Bakeshop- love both of the covers! Happy reading!

  8. Nice week for you. Will be looking for your thoughts on Teatime For the Firefly. I have it too.

    The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop & Cafe looks Delicious as well as a good read. :) ENJOY your week.

    My It's Monday, What Are You Reading

  9. Wow...5 books a week - that's impressive. Usually I get 2 or 3 done a week. I hope you are enjoying The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop and Cafe - I've heard good things about it.

    Have a great week and thanks for stopping by my blog!

    Have a great day!

  11. I know what you mean about getting derailed by a new release :) I hope you enjoyed the newest Percy Jackson :)

  12. I really should read the Percy Jackson series, I've always liked Greek mythology. My daughters both like it too, so I guess we should get with the program on these... :)

  13. I really want to start reading the Heroes of Olympus series, I have the first three sitting on my shelf waiting for me to pick them up.

  14. Seems like you had an awesome reading week! :)

    Here is our list

    By the way, we are giving away a signed ARC of Wild Cards by Simone Elkeles on the blog. Make sure to stop by and enter! :)
