It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (Nov. 15, 2010)

It's Monday, What are you reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey 
 
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.

I had a good week but not a good reading week. My presentation to the school board on Monday night went well. And my road trip to the Cities on Thursday night was great. But both really cut into my reading time. 

I finished only three books this week.
I thought Play of Passion by Nalini Singh was excellent. I loved the romance and was intrigued by the politics of the world. I can't wait to see if the heroes manage to thwart the villains in the forthcoming books. My review is here.

I read Scourge by David H. Burton. This was a good middle grade steampunk adventure. My review is here.

I also read Wren Journeymage by Sherwood Smith which adds a fourth volume to the Wren series. This was a good finale. The review will be posted soon. I recommend it for those who remember the Wren series -- good middle grade heroic fantasies.

I just began reading Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. It is the sequel to Beautiful Creatures which was one of my favorite books from 2009. This is another young adult paranormal romance. 

Next week I plan to tackle some of the books that I have for review. I currently have quite a number in that group. I'll be trying to read the ones for the books that are being published in December.
My Soul to Steal by Rachel Vincent is the 4th in the Soul Screamers series. These a good young adult paranormals with an unusual main character. She is a banshee. This one is due out on Dec. 28.

Don't Sweat the Small Stuff by Don Bruns is a humorous mystery. This one will be published on Dec. 6.

Once in a Full Moon by Ellen Schreiber is a young adult paranormal with a love triangle and werewolves. What could be better? This one is due out on Dec. 28.

If I manage to get all three read, maybe I can get to some of the ones I said I would read last week. 

What did you read? What's coming up for you? Leave a link and I'll be glad to pay you a visit.
