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:

Death of a Valentine by M.C. Beaton - I adore these cozy mysteries about Hamish Macbeth in his corner of Scotland. I even had my husband watch the tv series with me, although they were not like the books, just because I love this character so much.  I thought I had read them all, but a few pop up that I missed. Review coming soon.

Porch Lights by Dorothea Benton Frank - I love these beach books set in the south.  They are pretty easy to read, and this one was a great pick to read after Shadow of Night.  Review coming soon.

Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness- I loved this book! I enjoyed it so much more than the first one, which I really liked as well.  Review coming soon.

Reading this Week:

I am in a bit of a reading slump - I just can't find anything I am dying to read. I think this is because I have read so many great books in a row! 


The Waters of Star Lake by Sara Rath-  I picked this up at the library - the cover really appealed to me.  I love water and lakes.  

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare - I saved this series for such a time as this, when I felt all slumpy.  I have been reading her new series, Infernal Devices, but somehow missed this series, which I know is strange! I know I will enjoy these.  

Death of a Maid by M.C. Beaton - Another Hamish Macbeth.


  1. I see why you picked up that Waters of Star Lake book. It's so pretty and I would love to be sitting there right about now!

  2. When I'm in a reading slump I usually flip through a couple of magazines, just to sorta cleanse my reading palate ;)

    I hope you have a great week of reading!

    1. That is a good idea! I have a whole pile sitting in my office too, this would be a good time to flip through them. :)

  3. Ooh so lad to see you liked Shadow of Night even more than A Discovery of Witches - that's the one I've read, and really liked it too, but was still not sure about reading the next one. Looks like I might just have to add t to my reading list after all :-)

    1. I really felt like Discovery of Witches spent a lot of time setting this book up. I think this one picks up and is more interesting right off the bat.

  4. Love The Mortal Instruments series! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

    Also, I nominated you for the Versatile Blog Award. Check out my Versatile Blog Award post to find out the details.

    1. Aww thanks!

      I really like the author of The Mortal Instruments. I was glad when I had discovered there was a whole other series to read by her!


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.
