It's Monday, What Are You Reading? {5}

Happy Monday! Here is installment 5 of It's Monday, What Are You Reading?  Inspiration from Sheila, you can find her blog here.

It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

Just Finished Reading: This was the week for authors in the UK.   Actually, Stolen and Numbers fall into this category as well.

  Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma.  Honestly, I cannot put how that book made me feel into words.  It was a great book on an extremely difficult subject and I'm still thinking about it. 

I won The Mistress's Revenge by Tamar Cohen on Goodreads and it came in last week.  Another book with a touchy subject, infidelity.  This is a story from ex-mistress, Sally, to Clive, the man she had a five-year long affair with.  After Clive leaves his mistress, we see Sally spiral deeper into depression and the things Sally is driven to after being left by Clive. Initially it was difficult to follow and often times stories of infidelity are difficult for me to get through, but once I got into it I was anxious to know what would happen next. Sally was witty and funny at times and other times she was clearly incapable of rational thinking. It was impossible not to empathize with her at times and other times be completely shocked at what she was doing next. The ending came as a total surprise and really pulled everything together.  I thought this was a great book from a new author, definitely worth checking out!  It will be released June 7, 2011.

What I Am Reading Right Now: Finally really getting into The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss.

Reading, boating and drinking wine; 3 of my favorite things resulted in an awesome day.

What's Up Next: This is really difficult for me to iron down.  I'm more of a, what do I want to read right this second kind of person, so it's hard for me to plan.  I preordered Dead Reckoning the latest Sookie Stackhouse book.  It is released tomorrow, so we'll see when Border's will get it to me!  I'm still planning on reading Water for Elephants, I just still haven't gotten to it....

Have a lovely week!


  1. The Mistresses Revenge sounds like an interesting book. I am putting that on my list of books.

  2. That boat/wine/book combination looks like a dream. <3
