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 is not Halloween yet but the stores already have their Christmas stuff out on the shelves. This past week I also read two books set at Christmastime. Hmm. I guess once the 4th of July is over, it is time to dig out the stockings and ornaments!
Last week, I read the third book in Brenda Novak's Whiskey Creek series and after finishing The Burning Sky, I decided to get caught up and read the rest of the Whiskey Creek books since I had two for review.
I have been in the mood for contemporary romance lately but I know it will soon be time to read darker stuff for winter. I just bought A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin which will probably be my final book of 2013 or my first book of 2014. Winter is coming...
Where the Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller
A Question of Honor by Charles Todd
Star Wars: Razor's Edge by Martha Wells
The Burning Sky by Sherry Thomas
I loved this YA fantasy novel. It had humor as well as the fantasy and suspense. Plus Rae Carson says it's good and since she is one of my favorite YA authors, I listen to her recommendations!
When Lightning Strikes by Brenda Novak
When We Touch by Brenda Novak
When Snow Falls by Brenda Novak
Home to Whiskey Creek by Brenda Novak
Take Me Home For Christmas by Brenda Novak
I really liked the main character in this book. Sophia has been treated with contempt throughout the series because of her past mistakes when she was a teen and because she is now the wife of a horribly pompous jerk. It was nice to see how much she has changed but hard to see how people treated her like she hadn't. I think this is one of my favorite books in the series.
The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop and Cafe by Mary Simses
This is a fun story so far. It is set in a small town in Maine with a lot of character.
What I might read next depending on my mood:
Christmas in Snowflake Canyon by RaeAnne Thayne
I really liked the other books in this series so I am looking forward to this one.
Teatime for the Firefly by Shona Patel
