It’s Monday! What are you reading? January 19, 2014

Reading on MondayThis is a weekly meme run by Book Journey!

Post the books completed last week, the books you are currently reading, and the books you hope to finish this week.

Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme that was created by Marcia at The Printed Page, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring meme (details here). It will be hosted at Mailbox Monday for the 2014 year.


I had a pretty decent reading week, and a pretty tiring rest of the week. It turned out to be one of those times where I was busy pretty much every night after work, and apparently it took a toll because I had a very unintentional nap this afternoon! I was snuggling kitties and the next thing I knew, it was several hours later and I was just waking up.

Books completed last week:
Storm Front (Derrick Storm) – Richard Castle: This was an entertaining mystery, along the same lines as the Nikki Heat series. I liked it!

Bellman & Black: A Novel – Diane Setterfield: This was an ARC I received a bit ago, and I liked it, despite it being a bit bizarre at times.

Books I’m reading this week:
The Memorist – MJ Rose: I’m continuing the Reincarnationist series, we’ll see how it goes!

Books ongoing:
Emma – Jane Austen ~ 36%: No Emma this week.

Books I acquired this week:
The Black Country (Scotland Yard’s Murder Squad) – Alex Grecian: I liked The Yard so much that I ordered the sequel this week!

What I watched this week:

  • Chelsea Lately,  The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, The Ellen DeGeneres Show
  • Parenthood
  • The Crazy Ones
  • The Originals
  • Sleepy Hollow
  • Almost Human
  • Modern Family
  • Arrow
  • Community
  • How I Met Your Mother

My Top 5 Artists This Week:

    I read Emma a few years back and enjoyed it. Pretty sure finding a copy for $1.5 added to that enjoyment immensely. Have no idea why I am yet to read any of the Richard Castle books, because the TV show is pretty fun.

    Enjoy your week!

    Unexpected naps are lovely! I hope you are feeling rested and ready to tackle this week.

    I read Bellman and Black too. I thought it was good, but I wish it had been marketed differently. It didn’t seem quite like a ghost story to me.

    I enjoyed Bellman & Black as well. Been meaning to get to The Yard. I’ve heard lots of good things about that series.
