It's Monday, What Are You Reading (183)

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.

This week I was not as motivated in my reading. I finished Love by the Morning Star but after that I couldn't commit to just one book. I am making progress on the audio book I am listening to but I kept jumping from e-book to e-book and even read a little bit of a library book but nothing completely captures my attention. I hate when that happens.

I also have my masquerade murder mystery dinner library program coming up soon and I still have quite a bit of work to do so I spent some hours getting ideas and visiting local craft stores today when I otherwise might have read. The program is a lot of work but it is also kind of fun to put together. Next time however I think I will downsize it. I have 30 people attending which is amazing but kind of scary too.

Books reviewed:

Mambo in Chinatown by Jean Kwok
Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson

Books read:

Love by the Morning Star by Laura L. Sullivan

This book is kind of silly but also entertaining to read. There were times when the silliness just became annoying so I didn't enjoy it as much as I had hoped.

Currently listening to:

The Titan's Curse by Rick Riordan (reread)

What I plan to listen to next:

The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan (reread)


  1. A masquerade murder mystery- how fun. I bet it's a LOT of work but probably so worth it. Hope it goes well, sounds like a great time.

  2. We all have that dull (?) reading moment, I guess. I haven't listened to audio books before, but I really want to try them. :)

    Oh and that masquerade murder mystery dinner sounds fun! Good luck! :)

  3. Oh wow. Fancy doing all that organising for the murder mystery. Hope it does go well and that you finally settle into a book that just really grabs you.

  4. I love silly and entertaining books, so Love by the morning star is now on my TBR-list :)

  5. Lots of work for you but it'll be heaps of fun, don't forget photos :) I love having an audiobook on the go when I'm busy, at least I get something read lol. Have a great week and happy reading :)

  6. Good luck with your murder mystery night!

    Enjoy your reading selections this week!

  7. Wow- a murder masquerade party sounds pretty awesome. Good luck with all the planning. I hear you about not being able to read/commit to a book…I have felt like that lately too.

  8. I didn't read much last week either. :)

    Your masquerade murder mystery dinner library program sounds so fun!!! Are you going to write about here? I would love to see photos! :)

  9. I'd also like to hear how the masquerade murder mystery dinner goes. I bet it is a huge amount of work. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  10. Summer is the perfect time to re-read favorite books, isn't it? Have fun with your murder mystery night! :)

  11. The masquerade murder mystery dinner library program sounds fun!

    Love the Percy Jackson books. I keep meaning to reread those and actually review them this time.


  12. ENJOY this week. I love the cover of Love By The Morning Star.

    I actually read two books last week. That is a record for me. :)
