Monday: What are you reading?


Hosted by: The Book Date

What I read last week:

I only managed to finish one book last week because I was being wishy-washy about what I wanted to read next.  I wound up starting and stopping several books last week. *headdesk*

The Glass Forest by Cynthia Swanson

A historical mystery, The Glass Forest covers the time period between World War II and 1960.  The historical aspect was fascinating for me and I loved the alternating points of view, especially Sija’s which is the only one that travels into the past to give her full history.  My issue with the book is that it had this amazing slow build up of tension and secrets but, once the secrets were revealed, they were kind of meh.  A full review will hopefully be coming soon.

What I’m currently reading: 

Because of my above-mentioned wishy-washyness, I have several I started this past week.

Saddle Up by A M Arthur

I started reading this and had to set it aside.  I like the couple this book is centered on already, but Miles’ friend, Wes, is making me nutty.  If Wes can chill out with the inappropriate sexual comments, I might be okay.  Haha.

When the Lights Go Out by Mary Kubica

I won an ARC of this via Goodreads and finally got a chance to start reading it Saturday.

Dates From Hell by Kim Harrison, Lyndsay Sands, Kelley Armstrong, & Lori Handeland

I found this ‘clean up your TBR’ challenge somewhere so I thought I’d start with the first year I began adding books as ‘to read’ on Goodreads: 2007.  Thankfully, I only have two books on the list for that year, this anthology being one of them.

Lincoln’s Last Trial: The Murder Case that Propelled Him to the Presidency by Dan Abrams and David Fisher

Borrowed this from the library right when it was released and didn’t get through it before it had to go back.  I hope to finish it this time around.

What I’m reading next (hopefully):

Dodging and Burning by John Copenhaven

Coffin Road by Peter May

Asking for Truffle by Dorothy St. James

One of these my ‘up next’ books might actually be ‘up next’!

  1. What a nice variety of books. I started LibraryThing in 2008 and cataloged all the books around my house. Unfortunately I still have a number that were unread in 2008 and are still unread today. I really should try to read at least one a month from that collection. Come see my week here. Happy reading!


    1. Thanks! I tend to get bored reading the same genre all the time, so I like to diversify when I an. Hahaha.

      Ugh, I have so many on my TBR that are unread. It’s a bit of a daunting task. ONE DAY I WILL READ THEM ALL! Maybe. Hopefully. 🙂


    1. It’s not due out until 9/4, if I remember correctly. I’m just getting to the meat of the story, but it’s starting to get good. It’s going to be really interesting to see what the heck is really going on.


    1. I don’t know what it is with me, but this happens a lot. *sigh* I’m trying to not do this to myself. It has been really interesting so far. Being from Illinois originally, I’ve always had a love for Lincoln. And I’m kinda loving Dan Abrams on Live PD as well. But shhh… 🙂


  2. My reading was off last week too, in fact I finally finished a book today that I started like two weeks ago! Yikes. Hope you have a better reading week as well. 🙂

    I hope the Kubica book is good. Sounds like a good thriller.


    1. Congrats on finally finishing that straggler! I feel like I’m doing better but we’ll see by the end of the week, I suppose. I hope this week is better for you, too.

      It’s been really good so far and is really starting to pick up. I enjoyed her other book, but I think this might be better in the end.
