It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (June 15, 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...

After a couple of relaxing days at home, I packed my stuff and moved up to my summer home in Duluth. Thus far, the weather has been lovely and I have had lots of time to read. I chose a selection from TBR mountain to bring here. I also have hundreds of books on my Kindle to choose from. Contrary to my YA situation, I have very few adult books for review. I really hope to whittle down this stack at least. Of course, that won't make a real dent in TBR mountain. I still have about 600 print adult books on my stack.
From Adult TBR Mountain
With my brother's new job, we are planning when we can have meals together on a day to day basis since his work schedule is really random. One of the best things about summer is the he actually likes to cook. I can cook but he likes to cook. Heaven! We also went out for dinner at Texas Roadhouse on my first evening home. I liked trying a variety of new restaurants when I'm home for the summer too.

Read Last Week
Hell or High Water by Julie Ann Walker is a romantic suspense book I had for review. It was entertaining and it begins a series. My review will be posted on July 2.

Gone for You by Jayne Frost was a spicy romance that I also had for review. This one features a rock star and a college student. My review will be posted on July 4.
I next chose Shards of Hope by Nalini Singh from my TBR mountain and really enjoyed this 14th book in her Psy/Changeling series. My review will be posted on July 9.

Your Next Breath by Iris Johansen was a review book. It is the 4th book in her Catherine Ling series but also has appearances by many characters from her Eve Duncan series. My review will be posted on July 8.
The Master Magician by Charlie N. Holmberg is the third book in The Paper Magician trilogy. This one has Ceony preparing for her examinations when an old villain escapes from prison. I enjoyed this one very much. My review will be posted on July 11.

Demon Hunting in Dixie by Lexi George has been on my TBR mountain since January. It is a paranormal romance which has been compared to the Sookie Stackhouse series.

Next Week
First up next week will be Bronze Gods and Silver Mirrors by A. A. Aguirre. These are steampunk mysteries.

    Good group of reading. I am behind on my Johansen collection. I have some Aguirres I have been meaning to read too. I like steampunk and mystery would make it all the more fun.
