It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (May 18, 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... 

I'm entering a busy time at work. The Elementary kids have only one more week. So I am in a rush to finish projects and make sure all of my students have finished their work. We still have three weeks at the Middle School/High School but also have lots of projects to get done.

The Voice will finish up its season this week which will cut down on my television watching. But there are still baseball games on my computer to keep me busy. 

I should be getting organized for my summer vacation but doubt I'll really start packing before the first week in June. Clothes aren't a problem; choosing which books to take from TBR mountain takes the longest time. I like to pick out 30 or so books I really want to try to read this summer.These will be mostly adult books as I already have a calendar full of review books to read this summer. Summer does give me a chance to fit in an extra review or two each week.

Read Last Week
These two were from my TBR mountain. Day Shift by Charlaine Harris is the second in her Midnight, Texas, series. I liked the characters and enjoyed learning more about them and the secrets they are keeping. My review will be posted on June 10.

Clockwork Secrets by Dru Pagliassotti is the third book in this steampunk fantasy series. It was filled with battles and danger for both our hero and heroine. My review will be posted on June 11.
I read Spiraled by Kendra Elliot. This is the third in her Callahan & McLane series and was an entertaining romantic suspense/thriller. My review will be posted on June 3.

Empire of Night by Kelley Armstrong
Next Week
These are from my TBR mountain.
Gabriel's Redemption by Steve Umstead
First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones

Want to See What I Added to My Stack Last Week?
I'm trying something new this week and splitting up my YA and adult reading. You can catch up on the YA books I read, reviewed, and plan to read at Ms. Martin Teaches Media.

What is your week going to be like? Leave me a link and I'll come to visit.


  1. Good luck getting through all the projects before holidays, the next few weeks will fly. I'd like to start on the Charley Davidson series sometime soon. Have a great week and happy reading!

  2. Watch out, once you start the Charley Davidson series you'll want to devour the next seven books! I am eagerly looking forward to Eighth Grave. I keep going back and forth between which singer I want to win The Voice! It will be exciting for sure. Have a great week.

  3. I've had Midnight Crossroad for a while but haven't started it yet. So many people rave about the Darynda Jones series, I feel like I'm missing out. Good luck with your summer reading! It's always hardest to pick book to bring when going away. Clothes...meh, I don't really care. Books, that's another story! Happy reading!'

  4. Must have been nice to shift a couple off the TBR pile, I love it when I do. Only book familiar to me is the Darynda Jones book, and only read the first one in that. Don't work too hard!
