It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a wonderful place to meet up and share what you have been, and are 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 your groaning TBR pile! Everyone is welcome. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn over at The Book Date.
The weather was absolutely gorgeous yesterday, so we managed to get out for a walk. It was much busier than normal, but I guess it’s because most people would normally be at the currently closed pub or shopping centres.
Books Read Last Week
I thoroughly enjoyed all three books I read, the first of which was the final instalment of Colleen Cowley’s Clandestine Magic series. My review will be on the blog later but you can also find it here on Goodreads. I’m slowly working my way through Kitty Thomas’ Pleasure House box set. Broken Dolls was surprisingly light on both sex and kink, but was a gripping read. The final book completed was a beta read, though to be honest the author could hit publish right now, the book was so damn brilliant.
I did have a DNF, by an author I usually enjoy. The book wasn’t bad, it was just so bland and generic and like dozens of other similarly themed books. If you’re new to the forced marriage trope, then the book would probably be a hit with you, but for me it brought nothing new to the table. In fact I felt like I was wasting valuable reading time, hence the DNF.
I’m currently reading an MM dark epic fantasy. This is book 2 of a trilogy and is certainly ticking all the right boxes so far.
I have the final 2 books of the Pleasure House box set to read. After that the world is once again my oyster.
So that’s my week in books. How was your week? Did you get much reading done, and if you did were the books a success? Happy reading!
