It's Monday, What are You Reading? January 22

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Book Date and is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organize yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and add to that ever growing TBR pile! 

What I just finished:
Last week, I finished two books, both print.  One was an adult book (meaning not YA) titled, Almost Dead, by Lisa Jackson.  I enjoyed it but it did have some slow parts where I wasn't completely engaged. A friend told me not to give up on her as an author though and gave me a couple of other titles so I will try another.  The other book was YA and was a retelling of Peter Pan titled Unhooked.  I love all Peter Pan retellings and this one was a lot of fun also.  I read it all in one sitting. There were some holes where I think more time could have been spent with development but I still loved it.

What I'm reading now:
Right now, I have two books going (which is my norm), one audio and one print book.  I'm listening to the latest book in the Magic and Mixology series titled Long Isle Iced Tea.  I love this series.  It's just a lot of fun.  It's light, funny, and of course deals with witches and other supernatural beings, which I love.  The print book is the final book in the Jackaby series by William Ritter, The Dire King.  This has been a great series and I'm sad to see it end but I'm also excited to see how the author wraps it up.

What will I read next?  
My TBR list is so long... I'll probably choose from one of these:
  1. A Treacherous Curse by Deanna Reybourn
  2. Island of the Mad by Laurie R. King
  3. Umberland by Wendy Spinale

 Happy reading!


  1. I usually alternate between adult books - using your definition - and YA books. All those years as a school media specialist got me hooked on YA. I liked A Treacherous Curse but perhaps not quite as well as the two earlier books. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  2. I like Lisa Jackson's books...and Long Isle Iced Tea looks delightful. Enjoy! Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  3. Ooh nice! I adored Unhooked!! I still need to read Everland before I can read Umberland! But it's a series I am hoping to enjoy because I love all things fairy tale! Happy Reading!

    Here's my Monday Wrap-up
