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.
It's been a few weeks since my last It's Monday post. It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is here and November is nearly over. We had our second snow of the season yesterday but nothing stuck to the ground thankfully. I'm not ready for that! I was surprised to realize how little I've blogged this month. I have a lot of catching up to do with review writing so maybe next month will see more posts.
This week I will be visiting my parents for Thanksgiving and helping to prepare two Thanksgiving meals which should be fun. I may even be helping to decorate the Christmas tree if my dad doesn't get to it first. For those of you celebrating Thanksgiving this week I hope you have a great time with family and friends and safe travels.
Delia's Shadow by Jaime Lee Moyer
The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein
This was a difficult and moving story and a good companion novel for Code Name Verity. I recommend reading Code Name Verity first because there are some spoilers for it in this one.
Candlelight Christmas by Susan Wiggs
I think this book could be a Hallmark movie. It is a little saccharine but after reading Rose Under Fire, it was just what I needed.
Sleigh Bells in the Snow by Sarah Morgan
I hate the cover of this book but I thought it was a fun holiday romance and as it is the first in a series about three brothers, I plan to check out the other books too.
Bloodlines by Richelle Mead (reread)
It's nice to discover that his book is just as enjoyable every time I reread it. I think it is my favorite in the series though I liked The Golden Lily a lot too.
The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman
This is one of my book group picks for November and I was worried that I wouldn't get it finished in time but I was able to just sit down with it over the weekend and read it pretty quickly. I liked it and I think there will definitely be much to discuss but I wasn't as wowed by it as I expected to be.
The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead (reread)
I am enjoying rereading this series before I pick up The Fiery Heart. It is funny to see Sydney figure out social cues. The scenes where she interacts with Brayden reminded me of The Rosie Project a little bit. I don't remember this book as well as the first one so it is almost like reading it for the first time.
What I plan to read next:
The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead (reread)
The Fiery Heart by Richelle Mead
