It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (May 6th)
"Welcome to It’s Monday! What Are You Reading! This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!"
I had an amazing week of reading last week as I managed to finish up three books! Maybe it was all of the rain or I don't know what but I hardly ever read that many books in a week. It really helped out with my Goodreads' challenge because I had fallen behind. I'm still behind by one book but I'm not too worried about it. It's just fun to see where I am at in terms of reading goals and numbers. This week promises to be as busy as ever with work, baseball (practices/games), and everything else that goes along with life. We are currently remodeling the boys' room which is almost finished but still requires a lot of work. Hopefully the bed will come in by next week and we can finish up! In the midst of all this I definitely will be reading so let's catch up with what I plan on reading this week. Last week I finished the following books:
The Magic Circle by Jenny Davidson was for a TLC book tour. I liked but definitely didn't love this one as there were both good and not so good parts to it. It was interesting though and the reviews I have been reading for it have definitely been mixed.
Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl was a whopper of a book that it felt like it took forever for me to read. In all actuality, it only took a bit longer because I read it mainly at work on my breaks. Until the end when I had to bring it home with me to see how it would all play out. I liked this book but definitely wasn't wow-ed by it. I'm looking forward to seeing the movie to see how it compares. More on my thoughts hopefully soon (if I ever catch up on review writing that is)!
The Body in the Library by Agatha Christie was the clear winner of the week as best read. I'm a HUGE fan of this author and the second Miss Marple book was much better in my opinion than the first. I didn't figure the whodunnit out until the very end and was pleasantly surprised at how much more I enjoyed this book in comparison to the first. I will definitely be sharing my thoughts on this one soon!
This week finds me with big plans for my reading as I seem to be reading ALL of the books at once. I'm not even sure how I have so many books on the go other than I've gone back to a few books that I set aside previously. I'm currently reading the following books:
See what I mean??? It is almost a bit ridiculous to find myself in the midst of all of these books but here I am. Wicked As She Wants was just sent to me by the publisher and I couldn't resist starting it right away. The other three are all books that I'm reading on my reader but I've been kind of varying which one I choose to read. I am a moody reader so I guess whatever fits!
The weather is gorgeous outside so I'm off to get my day started. I hope everyone has a good book (or four) that they are reading....Happy Monday!
