What Are You Reading On Monday

A weekly event hosted by J. Kaye’s Book Blog to discuss your reading week ~ the books you've read and those you plan on reading in the coming week. I felt a bit better this week, not great but definitely a little more motivated. Read another wonderful book, The Last Queen and caught up on a few reviews so I was happy :-) I keep saying it, so it has to be true, I've been blessed by the 'good reading' fairy, the last month has been filled with wonderful books; there are links to some of these reads below.

  4. You're early...lol! Or so it seems with the different time zones. :) I love Tess Gerritsen, but haven't read any of her books this year. I'd like to get back to reading the authors I love next year. This year has been for reviewing and various book challenges.

    Next year, I plan to get back to my reading roots. ;)

  6. OMG J.Kaye, I rarely come across other Tess Gerritsen fans, doesn't she write the most awesome medical suspense!

    Eli & Lea, I'm really enjoying Night Embrace, I think it's better than Night Pleasures

  7. Can't wait to read your review on The Last Queen. Wasn't that a great library find? I haven't read mine yet, might have to get an extension or buy it if it's as good as you say.

  8. Can't wait to read your review on The Last Queen, I've been wanting to read it for a while.
    And Tess Gerritsen is in my TBR pile, I think it's the first book in the series, The Surgeon.

  13. Teddyree ~ Really? I discovered her on a book trading site a couple or so years ago. She writes believable intense thrillers. I prefer her books on audio. So far, the narrators have been good.

  16. How are you liking Night Embrace? It wasn't my favourite but it was really good, like most of the DH series.
    I have Dime Store Magic on my list too. I stopped after Stolen cause the others didn't seem to have Clay and Elena.
    Happy Reading!!
