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 fantastic time on my vacation to the Savannah area. Some of the highlights of my trip included going to The Savannah Tea Room, taking a trolley tour of the Historic District, and candy shopping on River Street. It was also great to spend time with my family.
Even with all the activities I still found time to do some reading. Now I need to get caught up on writing my reviews!

The Summer Girls by Mary Alice Monroe
The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan (reread)
Love Overdue by Pamela Morsi
This is a contemporary romance featuring a librarian so of course I wanted to read it! I thought the parts about librarianship in a small town seemed accurate. I really liked this book until the end when it let me down with its lack of conflict resolution.
The First Star to Fall by Diana Peterfreund
I enjoyed this e-novella so much that I decided to start my ARC of Across a Star-Swept Sea even though I'd planned to wait till closer to the October release date.
The Selection by Kiera Cass
I was surprised that I actually liked this book. It was a quick and light read which was just what I needed on vacation. Now I am on the waiting list for The Elite at the library.
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
I started listening to the audio book (fantastic) but then switched to the print version because I needed to finish the book in time for this week's book discussion. I loved it and can't wait to hear what the other group members thought.
Across a Star-Swept Sea by Diana Peterfreund
This is a retelling of The Scarlet Pimpernel set in the same world as From Darkness Shows the Stars. It is something of a companion novel but takes place in a different place (New Pacifica-reminds me of Hawaii) and possibly different time period. So far, I love it.
What I plan to read next:
The Husband's Secret by Laura Moriarty
The Sweetest Dark by Shana Abe
I am going to be reviewing the sequel, The Deepest Night, for Amazon Vine so I thought I better read this book first! I like books about dragons and while it probably won't be like Seraphina, maybe it will be a cross between that book and Firelight by Sophie Jordan. I am intrigued by the setting during The Great War too.
