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 Friends by Holly Chamberlin:  I wanted to get a last beach book in before fall, and I finished in the nick of time! Review upcoming today or tomorrow.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs: I was attracted to this book by the cover, and I loved the book. 
The Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross:  Much better than expected! I really liked it, although could have been more steampunk.

Hijab Boutique: Still working on, will finish today and review soon.

Currently Reading:

I apparently went for a culinary/pastry theme this week, totally unplanned!

The Sweet Life in Paris by David Lebovitz:  Saw this somewhere, and needed to read it! Love pastry and love Paris. Although I have never been there.

The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake by Aimee Bender:  I just really liked the title and cover. 


  1. I'm looking forward to reading your review of Miss Peregrine's!

  2. Looks like some good reads. Enjoy.

  3. Looks like some good reading. I think I'll have to put The Girl in the Steel Corset and Miss Peregrine on my list.

  4. I read and reviewed Miss Peregrine's a little while ago, and I think I'm one of the few who didn't enjoy it very much. I have The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake on my bookshelf waiting to be read... hope you enjoy it!

    Here's my Monday:

  5. I really enjoyed The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake. I liked that it didn't go where you expect it to go.

    Here's my Monday:


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.
