It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
Over the past two weeks, I’ve
Kitty and the Midnight Hour by Carrie Vaughn–It was good, it just pushed some of my buttons. I’ve been assured that my issues get resolved as the series continues, and I could even see it happening throughout this book.
Without Reservations: The Travels of an Independent Woman by Alice Steinbach–I’m ready to go to Paris. Or the Amalfi Coast. Alice Steinbach is a gorgeous writer and I enjoyed her observations on life.
Kat, Incorrigible by Stephanie Burgis–Very, very cute. I enjoyed the heck out of this one.
Moloka’i by Alan Brennert–I felt bereft when I finished this book and realized that I wouldn’t be spending anymore time with Rachel, the main character.
Beyonders: A World Without Heroes by Brandon Mull–Good start to a middle grade fantasy series. I was disappointed with the unresolved ending.
Southern Plate by Christy Jordan–I’m not a cookbook fan, but I loved looking through this book of familiar dishes and reading Christy’s anecdotes.
The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connelly–Very twisty, turny plot that kept me turning pages–and I’m not a fan of courtroom books.
The Rooftops of Tehran by Mahbod Seraji–An interesting look at the people of Iran just before their revolution.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dreadfully Ever After by Steve Hockensmith–My sister guest reviewed. It was her favorite of the trilogy.
Corelli’s Mandollin by Louis de Bernières–Gorgeous writing that was a little too dense.
The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly–Just started it today, but I’m already loving it!
The Alchemyst by Michael Scott, read by Denis O’Hare–Pretty good so far.
Rising Tide: The Great Mississippi Flood of 1927 and How It Changed America by John M. Barry–Slow-going for me, but interesting
I have The Maze Runner by James Dashner ready to go on my iPod as soon as I finish The Alchemyst (I mentioned it last time, but there was a wait at the library). I’m also feeling like a fairy tale retelling (thanks to Book Rat’s upcoming Fairy Tale Fortnight), so I’ll probably get to The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale soon.
