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've had a couple of crazy weeks due to illness and work projects. I am feeling better and finally on a new medication for my sinus infection which will hopefully clear it up without the unpleasant side effects from the last medicine.
Yesterday was the big Downton Abbey themed murder mystery tea at my library and it went very well. Everyone had a lot of fun though no one figured out who the killer was. I will hopefully be able to do another murder mystery program next year. It was fun playing a suspect though I was a little disappointed that I wasn't the killer :)
Take Me Home For Christmas by Brenda Novak
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling (reread)
Midsummer Night by Deanna Raybourn
While this is a Lady Julia Grey novella, it isn't a mystery and though the cover suggest a steamy romance it isn't that either. It is a short look at the events surrounding Lady Julia's wedding.
Crash Into You by Katie McGarry
I liked Isaiah's story but it didn't quite live up to Dare You To in my opinion.
Longbourn by Jo Baker
It is interesting to see the characters and events of Pride and Prejudice from the perspective of the servants. I liked that the servants had their own stories and romantic troubles too. It wasn't just a rehash of the classic.
Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein
While it is great to see the character of Maddie again, so far I find the main character of Rose to sound a little too much like Julie from Code Name Verity. I am not sure I will continue reading this at the moment as I am more in the mood for something light rather than a really dark book like this one.
What I plan to read next:
Roomies by Sara Zarr and Tara Altebrando
Curtsies and Conspiracies by Gail Carriger
