It's Monday! What Are You Reading? and a Readathon!!

Hosted by Sheila at Book Journey who says:

"It’s Monday! What Are You Reading is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between! D 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 a great week of reading this past week! I was able to finish two books and begin a third which is almost unheard of for me. Last week I finished reading the following books:

1. Spider's Bite by Jennifer Estep- One of the best beginnings to an urban fantasy series that I've read in a long time. I couldn't put this one down.

2. The Sixes by Kate White- A creepy thriller that I enjoyed reading although the ending fell a bit short.

I'm now currently in the midst of reading In the Heat of the Bite by Lydia Dare. I've heard good things about this author so I'm excited to read this book. In other book related news, I've decided to join in on another readathon. I'm notorious for not doing very well with readathons but I couldn't not participate. Especially since this readathon is about having too many books to read. It is hosted by On a Book Bender and is called the Bout of Books Readathon.

I'm hoping to finish two or three books this week which would be a MAJOR success for me. I'm going to begin with In the Heat of the Bite by Lydia Dare and then who knows. I've been trying to alternate more between review copies and library books to allow for more flexibility in my reading and it really seems to be helping. Maybe with this readathon I'll hit an all-time high number of reads in August :) Or maybe I'll only finish one book but at least it will be fun to try. Wanna join in???


  1. I have not heard of any of these books but there are a lot of interesting coves. I probably should have joined this read-a-thon but didnt. Probably too late.

    Here is my Monday Review

  2. Oh, I have read some Kate White books, so this one is going on my list!

    Thanks for sharing.


  3. Enjoy the read-a-thon! I often think about joining one.

  4. I haven't heard of any of these books before. Enjoy the read-a-thon! :)

  5. Found you through the Bout of Books read-a-thon. I would like to finish 2 this week but am keeping track of pages read only.

  6. You are having a good reading week! Also, I know what you mean about readathons - I don't do as well in them either, but I can't hold back from participating in them.

  7. It does sound like you had a great reading week!
    Happy reading and enjoy that read-a-thon :) Those are always fun.

  8. I'm waiting to hear about Dewey's 24-Hour Readathon. It usually takes place in October.

    Here's my Sunday Salon!
