It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (April 27, 2015)

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.

Other Than Reading...

This past week was a cold and rainy one. Spring has left the area again! It has been a good week for learning though. My kids are working hard and not suffering from Spring Fever. Next week has a couple of extra meetings that will eat into my after school time. Those, along with The Voice and Atlanta Braves baseball, will cut into my reading time.

The school year is winding down. There are 20 days left for my Kindergarten through fifth grade students and 28 for my sixth through twelfth grade students. What with field trips and in-school disruptions, I will see my elementary classes less than 5 more times. My sixth graders should each have ten more classes. I already know what they are doing for the next six of them. Then, I'll have to find some other short project to fill the rest of the year. 

Read Last Week
Velvet by Temple West was a young adult vampire book. It will be released on May 13.

Rock Hard by Nalini Singh is a spicy romance from my TBR mountain. My review will be posted on May 23.
Garden of Lies by Amanda Quick is her latest. It was from my TBR mountain where it lit down very briefly. My review will be posted on May 20.

Kissing in America by Margo Rabb was from my YA review stack. It was an excellent story about grief, first love and friendship. My review will be posted on May 23.

The Cage by Megan Shepherd is a science fiction story that I got as an eARC from Edelweiss. Prudence by Gail Carriger is from my TBR mountain. I really like her historical stories.

Next Week
The next two on TBR mountain are Fountain of Secrets by Anita Clenney and The Unleashing by Shelly Laurenston. Clenney's book is a sequel to one I read a while ago. It was also a Kindle Daily Deal in March. Laurenston's begins a new urban fantasy series.
I have recently received a couple of adult review books. Night of the Highland Dragon by Isabel Cooper and Ever After by Jude Deveraux. 
The next two on my YA review stack are Proof of Forever by Lexa Hillyer and Devoted by Jennifer Mathieu. Both will be released in early June.

Want to See What I Added to My Stack Last Week?
I've been busy setting up June's blog posts for my standard memes - Teaser Tuesday, Book Beginnings & Friday 56, and all my reviews. I still have to fill in the details and read the books but my calendar looks pretty full. Last summer I had a chance to read 30 or so books from TBR mountain during the summer. This summer looks more full of review books on the YA side but I do have a couple of books from my YA stack that I really want to read. I will still have quite a bit of room for reading adult books from my TBR mountain but, then, my adult TBR mountain is twice as big as my YA TBR mountain.

How was your week? Leave me a link and I'll try to stop and see.


  1. Yup, no sign of Spring here in PA either. It's been freezing cold and it's even snowed! I'm wearing my winter coat still! This is nonsense! I really want to read Velvet and The Cage. I've been looking forward to both of those for a while. I've seen The Unleashing around a lot. Have a great week!

  3. Didn't know about "Ever After." I use to keep up with all of Jude Deveraux' books. I happened to see one the other day titled "True Love." Have fun.

  4. So many good books here and authors I love. I hope to get on to the second Anne Bishop book this coming week. I like the look of the next Jude Deveraux book. Enjoy the sport, hope your team wins!

  5. It's autumn here and getting colder. I really like the cover of Kissing in America, it stands out :)
    Have a great reading week,
