It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (March 16th)

"It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week.  It's a great post to organise yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!"

It has been way too long since I have participated in this meme!  Work has been extremely busy (currently we are in mandatory overtime until the end of the month) and I've been using up all of pre-scheduled posts because of it.  I am so thankful that I work from home now though as it makes the long hours that much more manageable.  We have had spring weather this week as well (sunshine and rain - two of my favorite things) which makes everything better!  Not much else to report though as life is just busy, busy.  I was thinking about doing a reading update that would catch me up since my last update but that is too overwhelming to think about.  Here, instead, is what I finished last week:

Such a great week of reading!  This is basically what happens when I am stressed with life- I throw myself into the books that I am reading.  This is what relaxes me like nothing else so a busy work week meant lots of reading time in the evenings (or whenever I could fit it in).  My thoughts will be posted on Cinco de Mayhem later this week and reviews for other two will be coming in the near future.  All three were great in their own ways and I can easily recommend!

I am currently reading the following books:

I don't usually read two books but I've decided to try it.  One nonfiction to meet my goal of actually reading some of the nonfiction on my TBR list.  This is off of my own shelves thanks to my sister.  Rage Against the Dying is a library book that I've been meaning to try for some time now.  Last year Fear the Darkness (the second book in this series) was on my top reads of the year list so it is time to finally read book one.  I have very high hopes and am excited to begin reading it.  I actually haven't started either of these books quite yet.

New Arrivals:

Let's just ignore my lack of self control (yet again) and enjoy those beautiful covers, shall we?  I won't apologize for wanting to read all of these because they all sound SO good!  I have lots of great reading ahead of me and that is all that matters!

Happy Monday and Happy Reading!  


  1. I read PORTRAIT IN DEATH year before last. Well, I read all the JD Robb books that were available at that time in 2014. A sort of binge thing. And now I am again 3 books behind - something like that. I'll probably wait until it's 5 or 6 before I catch up yet again.

    My mystery group is discussing RAGE AGAINST THE DYING for our May meeting. I need to get that one read before long. Will look forward to hearing what you think about it. Have a good week and don't work too hard!

  2. You do sound very busy but at least you are still getting great reading in. I haven't seen most of these books, so thanks, will check them out but look forward to your reviews more.

    I am trying to read 2 books right now, not working out to good, eek and now I only have a week to read the book club choice, sigh.

    Enjoy the spring weather, hope you don't get burnout at work.

  3. Yay for nonfiction! Good luck with those!

  4. I really like J.D. Robb but I am so bad with keeping up with the series!

  5. Rage Against the Dying was too much for me, to tell the truth. I'd love to hear your feedback on it.
    Bless you
