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.
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.
The Happy Ever After Playlist by Abby Jiminez. Such an enjoyable romance. An unusual first meeting and a challenging relationship.
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.
Christmas Baby for the Billionaire by Donna Alward. An enjoyable romance.
