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.

Read Last Week:

The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom:  I loved this book start to finish.  I sobbed, cheered, and rooted for these characters the whole book.  It was one of the best books I have read this summer.

The Red Garden by Alice Hoffman:  This was not my favorite of her books.  I have read better, but this book still had the haunting qualities and beautiful prose that is uniquely hers.  

The Witches of East End by Melissa De La Cruz:  This was a fun book, with a mystery in it that kept you guessing.  It was an interesting take on Viking lore and witches, I enjoyed that twist immensely.  I should have the review done in the next day or two.  

Currently Reading:

 Savannah Blues by Mary Kay Andrews:  Last week was a pretty heavy week, book-wise.  Serious, sad, I enjoyed them but I am ready to balance it out with a few fun books, like Andrews' Savannah Blues.

Ta-Ta For Now by Bethany Lopez:  This is a young adult that the author donated to our school library - I happen to be lucky enough to know the author, and I am looking forward to reading her first book.

Titus Groan by Mervyn Peake:  To be honest, I picked this book up because I like the name and cover.  I may end up hating it and not finishing it, or I may really love it.

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.
