It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (Jan. 31, 2011)

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.

Last week I read:

Blood Challenge by Eileen Wilks - This is the the latest in this urban fantasy series. It has shifters and sorcerers and dragons. My review will be posted on Feb. 3.

The Unfinished Song: Initiate by Tara Maya - This is a fantasy debut about a young girl who is looking for her future and a young man who is running away from his. My review is here.

Archangel's Consort by Nalini Singh -- This is the third in this urban fantasy series in which the main character has been transformed into an angel and is the consort of the most powerful Archangel of New York. I loved the romance and the adventure. My review is here.

Once Bitten by Kalayna Price -- This is an urban fantasy where the main character is a shifter who has run away from home and finds herself turned into a vampire and is under a sentence of death unless she can find the rogue shifter who is killing young women. My review will be posted on Feb. 5.

Warped by Maurissa Guibord - This is a 2011 YA Debut Author title that I enjoyed very much. It is about a modern girl who pulls a loose thread on a tapestry and finds herself dealing with a young man from 1511, the evil witch who imprisoned him in the tapestry, and the Fates who don't want anyone stealing the threads of life. My review is scheduled for Feb. 3.

I am currently reading:

Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton -- I have the eARC from Simon & Schuster Galley Grab for this one. It is an urban fantasy dystopia for young adults. It is also the author's debut book. Look for it in bookstores on Feb. 22, 2011.

Next week I plan to read:

Twice Dead by Kalayna Price -- I have this somewhere in my TBR mountain and I want to find out what comes next for Kita and Nathaniel.

Timeless by Alexandra Monir -- This is another book by a 2011 YA Debut Author. It is a time travel story.

Deadly Vows by Brenda Joyce -- This is a review book on my Kindle. It is another Francesca Cahill adventure. I have enjoyed the previous historical mysteries and look forward to reading this one.

A Creed in Stone Creek by Linda Lael Miller -- This is a review book on my Kindle too. I haven't read Linda Lael Miller for years and am eager to see if I still enjoy her romances as much as I did.

I may not have as much reading time as I would wish this week. I have meetings Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday this week besides the full five days of work. I could really use a "snow day". Has anyone checked Minnesota's weather forecast?


  1. Looks like you have a great week lined up! Happy reading.....

  2. The Unfinished Song looks intriguing...hope you enjoy your books.


  3. I don't know about Minnesota but we're in for bad weather this week in northeastern Ohio!

    I will be checking back for your review of Warped. I really want to read it and Timeless. I'm glad you enjoyed Warped. One of the great things about the debut author challenge is discovering all these fantastic new YA books that I might have missed out on otherwise. Have a great week! I hope you get some time off to read :)

  4. The Unfinished Song is a new one to me and I really like that cover Kathy! I could use a snow day too.... I do not see anything in the near future though and unfortunately I live very close to where I work and have four wheel drive so it would have to be a blizzard to get me out of work..LOL

  5. Your week looks like a fun one. Happy reading. My Monday:

  6. I read picture books, manga and text books last week. Come see what I'm reading now.

  7. Can't wait to see what you think of Darkness Becomes Her! I totally loved it!
