It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a weekly blog meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey where you list the books you read last week and the ones you hope to read this week! I used to post this on my other blog, Cinnamon Owl, but I wanted to try to start a new blog, book reviews only. We will see how this experiment goes!

Read last week:

A Secret Kept by Tatiana De Rosnay: I wasn't a fan of this book. I loved Sarah's Key, and wanted the same experience with this book, but I just didn't get it. I will be posting my review of it later this week.

Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver: Maybe A Secret Kept didn't have a chance since this is the book I read right before it, and this book was Amazing! I am still thinking about it, and it has been a few days since I finished reading it. Beautiful, poetic, with imagery you want to roll around in, this book is one of my favorites so far this year!

Currently Reading:

Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris: I have been a fan of Sookie Stackhouse for years- they are just so fun, and sometimes you just need a book to be fun! I love the little town of Bon Temps, and seeing how my favorite characters are getting on. I am a fan of the HBO series True Blood as well, but I read the books first, and wish that the show would stick to the books a little closer.

A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray: I am not sure what to expect from this series, but I am looking forward to reading it!


  1. Droping by to say Hi *waves*

  2. I know what you mean ... a book that is merely good might suffer in comparison against a great one. :-)

  3. Thanks for visiting NotJustReading and wishing you all the best with your new blog :)

  4. Prodigal Summer sounds good - I do enjoy Barbara Kingsbury!

  5. I adored Prodigal Summer and A Great and Terrible Beauty. enjoy your books and your week. My Monday:

  6. Thank you for stopping by earlier! This coming week is my last week off before summer session. I have a few books I want to finish before school begins. Come see what they are.

  7. You know, I love the Sookie books, but couldn't connect to the TV show because of how different they were. I stopped after one season...I know, maybe I should give it another shot. Hope you love the newest installment in the Sookie series!

    Have a fabulous reading week and thanks so much for stopping by earlier!

  8. I've been wanting to read A Great & Terrible Beauty for awhile, I hope it's fantastic!

  9. I loved Sarah's Key but haven't brought myself to reading A Secret Kept for just that reason - I was afraid it wouldn't be nearly as good. I hope you enjoy your books for this week!

  10. The cover of Prodigal Summer looks gorgeous. I will be reading your review now :)


I love hearing from people, don't be shy! I would love to hear what you think! I always reply back, although it takes me a bit longer these days due to the little guy.
