It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. It is a great way to recap what you read and/or reviewed the previous week and to plan out your reading and reviews for the upcoming week. It’s also a great chance to see what others are reading right now…who knows, you might discover that next “must read” book!
Last week was a bit slow on the reading end. I spent a good chunk of week cleaning and getting ready for my sons birthday party this weekend. The party was a huge success even if only half of the kids invited actually showed up. All in all it was a crazy hectic week and weekend so my reading time was severely limited.
The good news is I did managed to finish one book during the week and that was Unforgiven by B.J Daniels. While I plan to post the review of this book later this week, let me just say I really enjoyed this book and it bothered me so much that I had all these distractions keeping me from reading it quickly. Though I’ve only read two of her books I really enjoy her writing style and the suspense in her stories. I will definitely be looking for more of her books in the future.
I did also get a bit more of The Defender read as well. The book is still going slow so it’s really hard to get back into it after letting it sit for close to a week but I am going to try to finish it this week if I can.
For this week I have decided to go with a Historical Fiction book Originally I was going to read The Forgotten Queen, however I have switched my choices to a different book. So I will be working my way through Mistress to the Crown by Isolde Martyn. I also may work on Cowboy Cop by Rita Herron, but that is if time permits, as often it takes me longer to read Historical Fictions that other books as they tend to have more pages to them.
What books did you read last week? Did you enjoy them or find them lacking? What books do you plan to read this week?
