It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (March 25, 2019)

It's Monday, What Are You Reading? is now hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date.

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 will be combining my YA and adult reading and purchases on this one weekly roundup.

Other Than Reading...

I don't want to say this too loud and annoy Winter but it looks like Spring is coming. We have had bright sunny days, warmer than average temperatures, and lots of melting snow this past week. We actually have patches of bare ground showing around the snow drifts which are looking very pitted and ugly.

I have been enjoying lots of Spring Training baseball games but am also eager for the real season to start on Thursday. The Voice is getting more exciting now that the battle rounds are beginning too. I'm reading some of my own books before I begin reading my May review copies.

Read Last Week

If you can't wait until the review shows up on my blog, reviews are posted to LibraryThing and Goodreads as soon as I write them (usually right after I finish reading a book.)

  • The Curse of the Silver Pharaoh by Pip Ballantine & Tee Morris - steampunk mystery. My review will be posted on April 13. 
  • Wolfhunter River by Rachel Caine (Review) - 3rd in intense thriller series. My review will be posted on April 16.
  • Hide and Seek by Mary Burton (Review) - Beginning of a new suspense series. My review will be posted on April 18.

  • Written in Red by Anne Bishop - reread of favorite "comfort" series
  • Spellslinger by Sebastien De Castell (Mine and purchased recently) - Entertaining epic fantasy story. My review will be posted on April 20.

Want to See What I Added to My Stack Last Week?

  • Rough Justice by Kelley Armstrong - She's a favorite author.
  • Nothing Stays Buried by P. J. Tracy - I'm collecting the full Monkeewrench series and plan to read them before I read the newest which I have in ARC version.

  • Shadowblack by Sebastien De Castell - I enjoyed book 1 in this series and want to read more.
  • Limelight by Emily Organ - This historical mystery just sounded good.

  1. I’ve enjoyed what I’ve read of the Monkeewrench series.

    Have a great reading week

  5. OMG I can't wait for Wolfhunter River. I hope it was good!

    And I can't wait for Killing November.
    Looks like a bunch of good reads!

    Here's my It's Monday:

  6. Hi Kathy,

    My week was nothing like as exciting in my reading as yours sounds, but I did pick out a couple of titles that I liked the sound of - 'Hide and seek' by Mary Burton and 'Nothing Stays Buried' by P.J. Tracy, are probably heading for my list!

    Spring is also definitely in the air for this coming week, here in the south of the UK. I can't believe that we are going to get away so lightly with winter and spring this year, so I still have my fingers crossed as I read the weather forecast!

    Thanks for sharing and I hope that you have a good week :)


  7. Glad to hear spring is finally arriving there! We haven't had any snow in a while, but we are still alternating between cold and sort of warm-ish days :) Progress!

    Looks like another great reading week for you! I'm always impressed by how many books you read each week.

    Enjoy your books this week -


    Book By Book

  8. I look forward to your review on Read on Arrival. Have a great week!

  9. We are having more rain. It's pouring right now. But it's also warmer. My weekly update

  10. I hope spring stays for you! We get teased and then the cool slips back in for a day or two. I have got to read The Others series!!

  11. Send some cold and preferably some rain this way. It will be most welcome.

  12. Hooray for warmer days, and spring! I love Kelley Armstrong too, I will have to add that to my list! Have a great week!

  13. I haven't read any Anne Bishop. The Pit Perfect Murder looks good. I do a Furs-day Feature on Thursdays. That would be the perfect book to feature.
