It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (Jan. 7. 2013)

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 an excellent, relaxing, and quiet reading week this past week. I was on vacation until Thursday and took advantage of the extra free time. Here is what I finished:

I received seven books in the Sullivan series by Bella Andre for the Fall In Love with the Sullivans blog tour that begins on Monday, Jan. 7 and goes through Jan. 20. The books are spicy contemporary romances. I read the first four book in the series this week and enjoyed them all.
The Look of Love (review tomorrow)
From This Moment On (review on Jan. 9)
Can't Help Falling In Love (review Jan. 11)
I Only Have Eyes for You (review Jan. 14)

I also got a few more books off my TBR mountain.
A Perfect Blood is the most recent book in the Rachel Morgan series by Kim Harrison. My review will be posted on Jan. 9.

Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers is an epic fantasy which was also an excellent coming of age story. My review will be posted on Jan. 12.
The book that I read on January 1 was Divergent by Veronica Roth. This was an excellent dystopia with an interesting plot and engaging characters. My review will be posted on Jan. 10.
I am currently reading the fifth book in the Sullivan series - If You Were Mine by Bella Andre.

Next week I need to go back to some of the other review books that are on my stack and read these:
Circle of Lies by Sara Dailey and Staci Weber
Snow White Must Die by Nele Neuhaus
Ever After by Kim Harrison
Black Ice by Andrew Lane

If time permits, I would also like to read these books from my TBR mountain:
Goblin Secrets by William Alexander (National Book Award winner)
Cold Days by Jim Butcher (the latest in the Harry Dresden series)
Cold Fire by Kate Elliott (second book in a series)

Those are my plans. What do you have planned for this week?


  1. I loved Grave Mercy and can't wait for the next book. I also loved Divergent and Insurgent.

  2. I have heard Divergent is good, and while it's not typically a genre I read I might have to reserve it at the library!

  3. I love the cover of Grave Mercy! I commented somewhere else that I need to get moving on with The Dresden Files. I'm only on #3 but I do love them! Enjoy your week!

  4. I haven't read any of the Bella Andre books but I must admit they look like great books to spice up cold winter nights! Thanks for sharing.
    Happy Reading!

  5. Did you enjoy Grave Mercy? It was my favorite book of last year. Also, Snow White Must Die looks amazing. So many books, where do you find time to read them all?

    Find out what I'm reading this week!

  6. Nice! I can't wait for Ever After! Although last year it took me til September to read Kim's book! Hopefully I won't repeat that this year! Happy Reading!

    Here's my Monday Wrapup

    Have a GREAT day!

  7. I haven't read any of these, but they do look tempting. I'm very curious about Grave Mercy and Snow White Must Die. Enjoy!


  8. The Bella Andre books look really good. After reading your Stacking the Shelves post yesterday, I went to the website to see if I could sign up for the blog tour. Still waiting to hear back.

    Have a great week!
