It’s Monday! What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.
Other Than Reading...
I am finally at my summer home! After medical tests on Monday, I didn't feel well enough to come home until Wednesday. I'm all unpacked and settled for a summer of reading and relaxing. I've been out to eat twice since I got home - once alone and once with my brother. I still have leftovers from the second outing.
Today is Grandma's Marathon day in Duluth. It is my intention to go nowhere near it. I don't want to deal with the traffic or the tourists today. I am, however, considering interrupting my reading with a little baking today.
I am trying something new and actually writing this post on Sunday afternoon. It has been my custom to write this post after work on Fridays and to just update the links on Saturday morning. This week I made it to Saturday morning. Maybe next week I'll get all the way to Sunday.
Read Last Week
Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas. This is the fourth book of at least five. It is filled with twisty plots, growing relationships, and great characters. My review will be posted on July 9.
Flying by Carrie Jones is a review book that will be released on July 19. It is a contemporary paranormal starring a cheerleader who ends up battling aliens. My review will be posted on July 13.
Trapped by S. A. Bodeen is also a review book. This is the third in a middle grade science fiction/adventure series. It was exciting but really short and ended with a cliffhanger. My review will be posted on July 20 for this July 26 release.
I read Carry On by Rainbow Rowell from my TBR mountain. It has been forever since I read FANGIRL so I came to this book like a new reader. After spending about a quarter of the book feeling like it was just a Harry Potter rip-off, I became engaged with these characters and their problems. All in all I enjoyed it. My review will be posted on July 16.
The Ministry of SUITs by Paul Gamble and am finding it really silly so far. This his middle grade humor and middle grade adventure complete with footnotes. It will be released on July 26.
- Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld - I've had this autographed book and the rest of the series on my stack since October 2010.
- Seizure by Kathy Reichs - This second book in the Virals series has been on my stack since October 2011.
- The Gilded Cage by Lucinda Gray - I got this review book in print from Macmillan. It will be released on August 2.
- All In by Jennifer Lynn Barnes - Book 3 in The Naturals series
- The Marked Girl by Lindsey Klingele - review book released June 7
- The Secret Fire by Whitaker Ringwald - review book third in Secret Box series releasing June 21
A School for Unusual Girls by Kathleen Baldwin. I have been seeing this around on the blogs I follow and was curious about it.
The Kindle Daily Deal on Saturday included Sarafina and the Black Cloak by Robert Beatty. This is another that I became curious about when I saw it on so many blogs.
Finn's Choice from the author Darby Karchut. I have been following Finn's adventures since the beginning and find this ending book bittersweet. It will be released on September 20.
