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:

 Summer in the South by Cathy Holton:  I loved this one!  It was delightful!

River Marked by Patricia Briggs:  Briggs just keeps getting better, in my opinion!

Blue Bloods by Melissa de la Cruz:  I had hoped for more substance; the premise was interesting, but it seemed like a beautiful woman wearing too much jewelry.

Reading this Week:

Summer Friends by Holly Chamberlin:  I won this from Librarything, I feel since school starts in one week, I want to finish this up!

The Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross:  Reading for netGalley; started last week and the husband man had some extra time to hang out, so I didn't read as much as I had planned.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children:  I love this cover, the title, and I have heard good things about it. 

The Hijab Boutique by Michelle Khan:  Another Librarything win, I am hoping it is one I can donate to the school library when I am finished.  We have a very large population of people of Middle Eastern in our area, and not very many books about their culture, especially fiction.  So I am looking forward to this one.


  1. They all look like good reads! So many books...

  14. I've been drooling over Miss Peregrine's...(etc.), since I love the concept of using weird found photos to interweave with the text. Sounds awesome.

    Enjoy your week!


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.
