It’s Monday! What are you reading? (08.31.09)

August 31, 2009


“What are you reading on Mondays” is a weekly event hosted by J. Kaye that lets you share books you’ve read over the past week and books you have coming up.

Last week I read Hot Six by Janet Evanovich. It was exactly what you would expect it to be: light and fun. Just what you need every now and then.

Right now I’m reading Looking for Alaska by John Green. I should finish it in the next day or two, so I’ll save my thoughts on it for my concluding post.

Next up:

I Dreamed I Married Perry Mason by Susan Kandel, the first book in the Cece Caruso Mysteries series

The Historian by Elizabeth Kovstova, which I know has something to do with Dracula.

    I look forward to hearing what you think about Looking for Alaska. The Historian is on my list for September/October for the R.I.P. IV Challenge.

    Happy Reading!

    Oh, the Historian is so lovely! I hope you’ll enjoy it.

    That is the Historian about?

    “The Historian” by Elizabeth Kovstova was a dry read, but I enjoyed it.

    I Dreamed I Married Perry Mason sounds like an interesting read! Is it a cozy type mystery or a hard-core mystery?

    THanks for dropping by my blog!

    I love, love, loved the Historian. So much, I went and bought it (I borrowed it for the first read). I can’t wait to see what you think of it!!!

      Wow, this is making me look forward to it even more! Glad you liked it!

    Tam – I just finished Looking for Alaska and am hoping to get a post up about it tonight. It was much different than I thought it would be.

    Mae – I’m glad you enjoyed the Historian! I’m looking forward to reading it.

    Vicki – I really have no idea, other than that it’s about Dracula. But you can bet I’ll be posting about it once I start reading!

    J. Kaye – Thanks for the heads up! I plan on reading it between a couple lighter books to even things up.

    Sharon – I think it’s more of a cozy type mystery, especially since the main character is a former beauty queen :)

    Hello, Alita!

    I absolutely loved The Historian. It has doorstop proportions, but the effort is really worth it. It makes all those vampire novels out today tame in comparison.

    After reading the Historian I wanted to read Dracula again. I have to agree with J. Kaye, a bit of a dry read though.

    Have a great reading week! :D

    Peter – I’m glad you liked it! I’m really looking forward to it, although the size seems a bit daunting.

    Mel – I’ve never read Dracula, maybe I will after The Historian!

    Ruthie – You too! Thanks for visiting :)
