It's Monday, What are You Reading? (July 21st)

Well, not a huge reading week for me but I did get a few things accomplished while packing for our family vacation.

1.  Finished and reviewed For Everything a Season by Sharon Pape.  This book was shared with me in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed it but I had a lot of questions at the end.  It seemed a bit rushed.

2. Read and reviewed The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black.  This was my first book by this author and I am definitely going back to read some of her other books.  I had been disappointed in vampire lit for a while now and this was a refreshing and exciting trip back into the world of the undead.  It was gory and fun.  I highly suggest it if you love vampire novels and aren't afraid of some violence.  I'm really hoping the author writes a second installment.

3. Started Murder at Cold Creek College by Christa Nardi.  This is part of a blog tour that I am participating in during the month of August.  I hope to finish the book while I am on vacation this week so I can review it and get started on The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness.


  1. Ooh nice! I tried reading Harkness's books myself but couldn't get into book 1, so I just passed on them entirely. But you have me curious now about the Coldest Girl in Coldtown! I love vampire books! Can never seem to tire of them no matter what kind they are! Might have to look this one up!

    Here's my Monday Wrapup
