It’s Monday!  What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Read: I finally finished Mary, Called Magdalene by Margaret George on Sunday. I also knocked out a nice little Christmas book my mom gave me, The Christmas Cross, by Max Lucado. I also read The Mischief of the Mistletoe by Lauren Willig. I would call these books a guilty pleasure, but I can’t feel guilty about reading something that has me grinning like an idiot the whole way through!

Currently Reading: I had The Roar by Emma Clayton in hand, but I’m pretty sure it’s dystopian and I have to be in the right mood for that. I went completely opposite and decided to start Scones and Sensibility by Lindsay Eland instead.

What are you reading this week?

  1. I loved Mischief of the Mistletoe! That series and the Parasol Protectorate series by Gail Carriger are among my "guilty pleasures".

    I haven't read Scones and Sensibility yet but I've been wanting to. I hope you are enjoying it.

  2. Love guilty pleasure reads 🙂 I'm yet to read a Lauren Willig novel, must rectify that and I love Dystopian so I'll have to look into The Roar.

    Have a great week and happy reading 🙂

  7. Scones and Sensibility by Lindsay Eland has a super cute cover. I hope it's fab. I think I will buy it too.. Happy reading to YOU>

    Those guilty pleasures: why not? Especially if you've been smiling all week.

    Happy reading!

  9. Scones and Sensibility sounds so cute! I'm reading Prom and Prejudice, so I think we're in the same state of mind right now.

  10. nothing at all wrong with guilty pleasures. Now a say reading an adult book is my guilty pleasure. Have a wonderful week!

  11. I love guilty pleasure reads — and must admit, I haven't treated myself to any in a while. All my reading lately seems forced and uninspired.

    Thanks for reminding me that I should treat my guilty pleasures!
