It's Monday, What Are You Reading (68)

It's Monday What Are You Reading? is a fun weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. I always enjoy seeing what other people have read and reviewed over the past week. It is also a great way to find new books to add to that ever-growing TBR list!

Post to check out: Download free audio books this summer from SYNC!

Favorite book finished last week: Moonglass by Jessi Kirby

Books finished:

The Hollow Kingdom by Clare B. Dunkle

I read this for the YA Book Battle (I am a Round 2 judge) along with Ophelia by Lisa M. Klein. I will have a post up later this week about which book my co-judge Jasmyn and I picked as our winner to go on to the next round.

Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini

This one was a disappointment for me as you can tell by my review. It started out okay but then fell short of the mark.

Moonglass by Jessi Kirby

I really liked this one. Moonglass reminded me of the books of Sarah Dessen, Sarah Ockler, and Elizabeth Scott. I will hopefully have my review posted for it later this week.

Books reviewed:

My Foolish Heart by Susan May Warren

Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini

Currently reading:

Divergent by Veronica Roth

I am reading this slowly so I can savor the adventure. I got this from the library but ended up buying my own copy because I am enjoying it so much. I also talked my sister into reading it and it was her first Kindle purchase. Hopefully both of us will love it. So far I think it is amazing.

What I plan to read next:

This was not what I was planning to read next but it is due back soon and there is a waiting list. I have heard good things about it so no wonder so many people have put holds on it!


Dark Road to Darjeeling by Deanna Raybourn

India, Nicholas Brisbane, and a murder mystery. What more could I want in a book?


The Dark Enquiry by Deanna Raybourn

I hope to start this soon. I got the ARC from Netgalley but don't have time to read it before the book is published-which happens a lot unfortunately. Maybe I will get it started this week...

Hourglass by Myra McEntire

This is another book I had hoped to read before its publication date. If I am lucky, I will have time to read it this month!

That is what my reading week looks like.
What have you been reading lately?


  1. Divergent and Hourglass look really good! I just finished Impulse by Ellen Hopkins and am reading My Soul to Steal by Rachel Vincent ^-^


  2. I am glad you are enjoying Divergent. I just got it and have been hesitant to begin it. Happy reading!

  3. I so need to get myself caught up on the Julia Grey series before The Dark Enquiry comes out next month! I love her and Brisbane :) The Violets of March also sounds really good!

  4. It looks as though you have a wonderful week ahead of you. Enjoy your books and your week.
    My Monday:

  5. So glad to hear that you're loving Divergent, that books deserves all of the fantabulous praise that it gets, it's so amazing! :D It sucks that you didn't like Starcrossed though, I've been looking forward to that one. I'm still going to give it a shot though because it sounds like my type of book. ;)

    I hope you have an awesome week! Happy reading! :D

  6. Hourglass sounds really good and I hope I can get to it soon. I read Starcrossed last week, as well. My biggest issue was the editing during the second half. There were so many typos I was driven to distraction. I liked the story, for the most part, but think that you are right about Helen. I, too, hope to see improvement in the next book.

  7. I am looking forward to your review of Moonglass :) And thanks for the heads up on the free audio books, I will go and check it out :)

  8. Once again a very eclectic list of books. I am very anxious to read Moonglass as I have heard so many good things about it so far and I am also very interested in Hourglass. I have already read Divergent, but would love to reread it so taking your time is wise. Have a great week.

  9. I keep seeing Hourglass everywhere! I may get it :)

  10. Oooo Dark Road to Darjeeling sounds good!!

  11. You have some gorgeous looking books. I absolutely adored The Violets of March. Enjoy!!


  12. You had a good week of reading. This was a rare week for me in that I finished a lot of review books. Come see what I finished.

  13. I keep considering Dark Road to Darjeeling. Great mix.

  14. They all look good, for some reason this week I am captivated by the beautiful covers.


  15. Have a fab week! See what I'm reading here and don't forget to link your Outdoorsy book reviews on Read My Review, hosted on my blog.

  18. I love the cover of The Violets of March! I keep saying that I need to start Deanna Raybourn's series and I still haven't! Maybe next trip to the library. Enjoy your week!
