It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (May 19, 2014)

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.

While our weather has still been unseasonably cold, it looks like it is taking a turn for the warmer. I can hardly wait. I had my air conditioner checked out this week and would like to get a chance to use it before I head north for my summer vacation.

Just three weeks of school left and two of them are four day weeks. Things get a little confusing with the various classes all trying to fit in a last field trip before school is out. I have unexpected gaps in my schedule when classes are gone. It is nice to have the extra time to work on projects that I'd like to finish before vacation though.

This coming week sees the end of most of my TV watching too. The Voice's finale is Tuesday evening.

Read Last Week
Honor's Knight by Rachel Bach was the second book in her Paradox trilogy. I thought it was exciting and entertaining. My review will be posted on May 31.

Heaven's Queen by Rachel Back was the final book in the Paradox trilogy. I loved the action, the hero and heroine, and thought the conclusion was very satisfying. My review will be posted on June 5.
Take Me On by Katie McGarry was another intense and emotional contemporary story in her Pushing the Limits series. I devoured it! My review will be posted on May 21. 

Vivian Divine Is Dead by Lauren Sabel was another contemporary story about a young teen actress who runs away to Mexico to get away from death threats and finds danger, secrets, and a new romance. My review will be posted on May 31.
Hexed by Michelle Krys was a contemporary paranormal about a cheerleader who learns that she is a hereditary witch when she gets caught in a war between the witches and the sorcerers. It was an engaging story. My review will be posted on June 5.

Fatal Affair by Marie Force is the first book in her fatal series. It was an excellent romantic suspense title that reminded me in some ways of J.D. Robb's In Death series. After finishing it, I bought the rest of the series for my Kindle and look forward to reading more. My review will be posted on June 7.

I just started On the Road to Find Out by Rachel Toor. I got this ARC from Macmillan. The book will be released on June 10.

Next Week
The Body in the Woods by April Henry sounds like an engaging thriller. I got the ARC from Macmillan. The book will be released on June 17.

Another June 17 release is The Quick by Lauren Owen. I won this ARC from LibraryThing. It is a mystery with maybe a touch of horror.
Dark Metropolis by Jaclyn Dolamore was a NetGalley find. I have enjoyed previous books by this author. It is also a June 17 release.

That Night by Chevy Stevens came from Amazon Vine. This thriller is also a June 17 release.
