Monday Reading (June 20th, 2011)

In this weekly event hosted by One Persons Journey Through a World Of Books where we discuss what we've been reading this week (and, occasionally, what we haven't).

So, I'm back!  I got dreadfully ill just in time for my exams, and now that they're over (and my illness has faded) I am back and swinging.  I am super excited to start reading full-time (you know what I mean) and have already made my way through a few books.

Currently Reading:
  • Night Life by Caitlin Kittredge - Really enjoying this one!  I think I'm loving this book the way everyone else loved Unholy Ghosts (which, er, I couldn't finish).  The hero is such a bad catch and the heroine is stupidly violent, and yet... fabulousness ensues.
  • Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson - I thouroughly enjoyed the first 50 pages of this book, but now I just want the Major shot through the head.  Not sure I'll be finishing this one.

Recently finished:
  • Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch - I finished this before my exams and - unfortunately - it was unnecessary work.  Wish I had enjoyed it, but I didn't really... here's my review.
  • Brother/Sister by Sean Olin - This was excellent!  I am not usually one for contemporary YA - let alone thrillers - but Brother/Sister made me a believer.  Looking forward to writing this review!

Up next from the TBR Pile:
  • I have SO much on my TBR pile, I don't know where to start!  I recently got the Game of Thrones box set and am really tempted to start in on it... but then there is the Hunger Games Trilogy (which OMG, why did I wait so long to start that series??) And then there is Bite Club by Rachel Caine, Jealousy by Lili St. Crow, Exile by Rebecca Lim... hmm, Exile.  Yes, I think I shall be starting that next!


  1. That's a shame about Rivers of London. It looked so good too. I don't envy your having to choose. I would struggle with that one.

  2. I really enjoyed Major Pettigrew's Last Stand. I have heard of several of the books you have coming up, but I have not read them. Enjoy your books and your week.
    My Monday:

  3. Last week was rare for me in that I finished a lot of review books. Come see what I finished.

  4. Glad to hear your enjoyed Brother/Sister. Also Game of Thrones boxset? Hell yes to that! I got it too and will be reading the first book next week when I'm off work.

    Oh, and Exile is so pretty. Mercy here I come!

  5. I've read part one of the Hunger Games; It was a good read but I can't say I'm dying to read the rest, but my teen daughter loved them
