It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (Dec. 5, 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.

I read these books this week:
Singled Out by Sara Griffiths was a ebook that I got from Bancroft Press via NetGalley. I enjoyed this sports story/boarding school story that made some good points about following the crowd and following your dreams. My review is here.

Animal Attraction by Jill Shalvis was off my TBR mountain. I was in the mood for a light yet sexy romance with realistic characters and cute animal sidekicks. This book really filled the bill. My review is here.

Blaze of Glory by M. Garzon was sent to me by the author. I liked this story that was an intense romance combined with all sorts of information about horses. It was a wonderful story that would appeal to both horse lovers and romance readers. My review will be posted on Dec. 5.
I am currently reading another review book - Within the Flames by Marjorie M. Liu. This is the 11th book in the Dirk & Steele series but the first one I have read. I have just begun this one and don't have an opinion yet.

Next week will be mostly review books. I still have three that I promised to read in December. I would like to get them read in the next couple of weeks so that I can get a head start on my January books over Christmas break.
Ignite by Kaitlynn Davis is a young adult paranormal that was sent to me by the author.

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater is from my TBR mountain. I have heard such good things about this one but have been passing over it in favor of review books.
8: The Previously Untold Story of the Previously Unknown 8th Dwarf by Michael Mullin is a short novel in verse.

Kaptain Vamp by Joanne Lecuyer is a middle grade novel, also short, that was sent to me by the author.

I think that is enough for a week that will also include two music programs and one committee meeting beyond the normal work week.


  1. Singled Out sounds pretty good Kathy - looks like you have a great line up for our new COLDER weather!

  2. Animal Attraction was super cute, wasn't it? :) Loved it!

    Hope you enjoy your week and find some good ones!

  3. You're doing great! I really want to read the Jill Shalvis book. It sounds so good. Have a great week!

  4. I went to school with a Cathy Martin :) You're not from Calgary are you? I haven't heard much about Ignite or The Scorpio Races.

  5. Some great reads - I hope you enjoy them!

  6. Its always good to get some books off the TBR pile; goodness knows I need to be doing that instead of reading "new" stuff, well at least its for me. Anyways, here is what I have been up to this past week and what my plans are for the coming week.

  7. The Previously Untold Story of the Previously Unknown 8th Dwarf... This book caught my interest. Must put it in my watch list. Happy reading week ahead! =^-^=

  8. Always AWESOME when you knock a book or 6 off your TBR pile. A lot of the books you read/are reading/or are going to read have tripped my trigger. Happy reading!

  9. Nice set of books! Haven't read any of them though. Hope you have a good reading week!

    Here's my Monday Wrapup

    Have a GREAT day!
