What Are You Reading Monday?


I am trying a new Meme created by J. Kaye at J. Kaye's Book Blog saying what books I read last week and what books I plan to read this week.

Last Week I Read:
  • Pendragon's Banner by Helen Hollick (496 pages)- I read this for a review that will be posted in October. I truly enjoyed this book, the 2nd in the series and look forward to reading the others.
  • Mama Dearest by E. Lynn Harris (387 pages) - I did not get too far into this book as the genre was not my style. However the writing was very descriptive and for those interested in romance and drama, give this book a look.
  • The Ice Chorus by Sarah Stonich (328 pages) This novel was beautifully written and my review is here.
  • The Puzzle King by Betsy Carter (344 pages) - for an upcoming review.
This Week I am hoping to read:
  • The Puzzle King by Betsy Carter (344 pages) My review.
  • Casting Off by Nicole R. Dickson ( 373 pages) - for a review
  • Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (640 pages)- Notice, I am really trying to keep my schedule light this week to finally sit down and read this novel. I already have the second one, so I had best get going.
Check back next Monday to see how well, or not so well, I accomplish my reading goals.

I look forward to reading your review of Pendragon's Banner, I am yet to read anything by this author but I hear she's good.

Good luck with reading Outlander! Can't wait to hear what you think.

Hopefully you get time to finally read Outlander!

Casting off sounds really good. Looking forward to hearing what you think of it.

Not bad for a weeks worth ;) The only thing I seem to read at the moment is scientific articles and blogs to take the edge off... but I have been listening to my Austen books on audio ;)

That was a good week!
Happy reading :)

I finished Nicholas Sparks newest novel, "The Last Song". It was an easy read, but in typical N.Sparks style, it totally made me cry.

I'm so glad to see you liked The Ice Chorus. I bought the Kindle edition this week. Not sure when I'll be able to read it but I'm really looking forward to it after reading your review!!

Andrea said...

Good luck with your reading list and happy reading.

LiveLaughLoveCj said...

Goodness that is a lot of reading!! I hope you are enjoying yourself along the way :)

Such an interesting group of books, can't wait for the reviews... I just know my TBR Wishlist is going to grow again!

alitareads said...

The Ice Chorus is one I need to add to my to-read list. Your review makes me even more eager to read it!

When I read that your review for Pendragon's Banner will be coming in October I thought "wow, that's a long time to wait for it!" but then I realized that October is only 3 days away!! How did that happen?? Anyway, looking forward to that review :)

Kat Bryan said...

I love your review of The Ice Chorus. You write very descriptively, better than a lot of book blurbs.

I've never read any of the Outlander books but I've heard good things about them.

Marie said...

I loved Outlander -- wonderful series of books! I can't start Echo in the Bone yet though since I still need to read the one before that -- I got behind! :-)

Kim said...

I have an award that you don't have yet :)

Michelle said...

I have been looking for something new to read. I'm going to check out some of your reads.

Tea said...

Oh golly! I love your "Ice Chorus" review. Lovely. I can't wait to hear what you think of "The Puzzle King."

Elena said...

I've heard good things about Helen Hollick's books, though I haven't read them yet.

I'm in the same boat as you are, though a few books farther along in the Outlander saga. I've got Breath of Snow And Ashes, and am expecting my copy of Echo in the Bone soon, but have yet to re-read Fiery Cross (let alone the John Grey novels).

However, the Outlander books are really really good.

MarthaE said...

Hi Jennifer - Sounds like you have some good books going! I hope you enjoy Outlander! I did the whole series on Audible and thought it was very good!

pagese said...

I loved Outlander! I own 2 - 5 and haven't read them yet. I'll get to them though!
Happy reading!

J. Kaye said...

LOLOL! Diana Gabaldon's books and light don't belong in the same sentence. I really want to start this series....maybe next year.

busy91 said...

I can't wait until you read outlander. I haven't read the 2nd one yet, maybe next year.

Kristen said...

I have The Puzzle King somewhere in my stacks to read too. Prolly ought to get to that soon!

Leslie said...

Mae said...

Hope you enjoyed Reading on Mondays. It's a great little round up meme. I haven't heard about any of your books!

Ruth Schaller said...

Happy reading this week! :D
