It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? #31

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!

Reviews Posted Last Week:
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
Taking Back Forever by Karen Amanda Hooper

I didn’t get as much reading done last week as I was hoping for, though with family visiting I hadn’t expected to have much free time to read with. Yet even after they left I found myself in a reading slump that persisted until yesterday. I’m still slightly in that reading slump but hoping to fully crawl my way out of it in this coming week.

What I Read Last Week:

I was lucky enough to be provided with an ARC of Taking Back Forever from the author and was so glad to have gotten it. While I didn’t get to really sink my teeth into it until late last week I really enjoyed this book, the characters, the storyline, the plot twists and now I am anxiously awaiting book three. To see my full review of this book please click on the link above.

I picked this book up since I was looking for something on the lighter side to read as well as something that had no review obligations. This is the fourth Murder, She Wrote book that I have read so far and while I enjoyed it I have to say it is so far my least favorite among them. I can’t put my finger on exactly why I didn’t enjoy it as much as the others but there seemed to be something missing in this one. Either way I’ll be reading more of these in the future as they do a great job of cleansing my reading palette so to speak.

What I Plan To Read This Week:

I’m quite looking forward to reading this book and was happy to see that my request to review it had been accepted. It sounds interesting and while it will start yet another series for me I believe I will enjoy this one.

What have you read recently? Were they as good as you had hoped or just alright? What books do you plan to read this week?
