It's Monday! What Are You Reading? #10

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Book Date. The idea is to share what you've read lately, what you're currently reading, and what you plan to read next. I love seeing what other people are reading and then adding to my never-ending TBR, so I thought this would be a fun meme to participate in each week!

Happy Monday, book lovers! Can you believe we're already halfway through May? 

I participated in the Savvy Read-a-thon on Saturday and managed to get two and a half books read, which is amazing for me since I'm a really slow reader. It was a lot of fun - I met some new readers and even won a book! 

Here's what I've been reading since my last Monday update two weeks ago.

What I Finished Reading:
  • A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas ~ I FINALLY FINISHED! Even though I really enjoyed this one, I kept setting it aside because I was getting behind on review books. Between that and the length and the fact I'm a slow reader, it took me ages to read. Now I can't wait to dive into A Court of Wings and Ruin
  • Ramona Blue by Julie Murphy ~ One of my favourite books of 2017 so far. A fantastic contemporary YA. 
  • The Chateau of Happily Ever Afters by Jaimie Admans ~ An adorable, hilarious romantic comedy. This one comes out June 7th, but is available for pre-order now.
  • It's Not Like It's a Secret by Misa Sugiura ~ This was a story featuring a Japanese-American queer girl. I had mixed feelings about this one. While I appreciated the honest discussions/portrayals about racism, the story itself was pretty slow and draggy and way too long. I probably should have DNF'd this one but f/f stories are so rare, especially ones where the main character is also a person of colour. 
  • Macy McMillan and the Rainbow Goddess by Shari Green ~ A sweet and poignant Middle Grade story told in verse about a Deaf girl whose family is growing and changing

What I'm Currently Reading:
  • Dust and Shadow: An Account of The Ripper Killers by Dr. John H Watson by Lyndsay Faye ~ Sherlock Holmes and John Watson + Jack the Ripper? This book was written for me!

What I Plan to Read Next:
I honestly don't know. I usually plan ahead so that I can fit all my review books in, but I want to read more 'me' books since I've been reading a lot of review books lately. I'm also trying to finish a few more squares for Bookish Bingo before the month is out, so I need to plan accordingly!

Recently on the Blog:
What have you been reading lately? Have you read any of the books I've been reading? I'll be doing the rounds of fellow It's Monday!

  1. I can identify with wanting to read more of your own books rather than review books all the time. This year I am making more of an effort to do that.

  2. Macy McMillan and the Rainbow Goddess looks good. I had a great week of reading and a fun mother's day. Come see what I'm reading now.

  3. I am trying to complete the bookish bingo too. I need a scary book and an adaptation. The problem is, I don't like horror. Still working on this. Good luck completing your board.
