It’s time once again for Kathryn’s weekly meme, “It’s Monday! What are You Reading?” at Book Date, where we share what we’re reading and have read over the past week.

What I Read Last Week

I read 10 books, 3 of these were romance novellas and 4 were picture books. The other reads were 2 contemporary romances. 1 mystery/thriller and 1 YA.

madness of sunshine44525771

A Madness of Sunshine by Nalini Singh. This was quite a departure for Singh from her usual fantasies but what a powerful book. Both a thriller and a mystery, set in New Zealand. Loved it.

happy ever after playlist 50208350._SX318_SY475_

The Happy Ever After Playlist by Abby Jiminez. Such an enjoyable romance. An unusual first meeting and a challenging relationship.

 

now a major 30238172._SY475_

Now a Major Motion Picture by Cory McCarthy. I so enjoyed this YA novel that takes place in Ireland. If not for the first word of the title which I needed for a challenge, I probably wouldn’t have read it. So glad I did.

  1. Wow! I don’t know if I’ve ever been able to say I read 10 books in a week! Not since I was a kid, anyway. Lucky you! I just found Wired for Story as a downloadable audiobook through the library. I looked for the print book last time I saw your mention of it, and couldn’t find that in my local library system, so I’ll try the audio version. Into the final week of NaNoWriMo!

  2. Great sounding bunch of books. I liked Singh’s thriller. I’m looking forward to her next departure from her outstanding paranormals. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
