It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? (#1)

It’s Monday, What are you reading? is a weekly event hosted by Sheila at One Person’s Journey Through a World of Books to list the books completed last week, the books currently being read and the books to be finished this week.

Well, I’m on a mini-vacay with my husband right now so you’d think I’d be able to catch up on my reading. But that’s hardly the case. It’s kind of difficult to do some reading when you’re in a place where you could easily get distracted by the sights and the sounds of your surroundings. I’ve been nursing a couple of books in my reading queue until I finally gave up on them. So I decided to put a kaibosh on those two books and shelved them back in my to-be-read shelf. Here’s what I’m reading right now:


The Fairie Ring by Kiki Hamilton. I’m enjoying this so far. It’s not a very thick book but it’s taking me a while to get through just because I can’t find the time to read. But hubby and I are going back home tonight so as soon as I’m back in the comfort of my bedroom, rest assured, I’ll devour this!


The Pledge by Kimberly Derting. I promised myself I was going to stay away from S & S Galley Grab but I find it futile to resist the temptation of reading a soon-to-be-released book. So I downloaded this along with a couple more. This book is putting a deep furrow in my forehead. Don’t get me wrong, I’m completely hooked, but I think I need to read a few more chapters to figure out the era and the world this book is based on. It’s good though!

A couple of books that I finished this past week are The Sweetest Thing by Christina Mandelski and Froi of the Exiles by Melina Marchetta. The former was just an okay read and the latter…well, let’s just say, at a whopping 608 pages, I surprised myself that I was able to read it twice already. Even more surprising? I just got this book this week. I think that’s also the reason why I can’t get into reading anything right now. I always found it difficult to pick up another book after reading anything by Melina Marchetta. The woman is a literary goddess!
