It’s Monday! What are you Reading?

It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Happy New Year to everyone! I had big plans for getting stuff done around the house between Christmas and New Year’s, but I ended up doing more reading than DIYing.

I am currently reading:

Fallen by Karin Slaughter

Fallen by Karin Slaughter (Georgia #3) – I am on a Karin Slaughter kick. I finished Broken on New Year’s Eve and immediately started Fallen. The only problem is that I have now read the Georgia series before the Grant County series, so the big event that occurs in the Grant County series is spoiled for me. I have only read the first book in the Will Trent series. Maybe I will get all caught up in 2012.

During the past two weeks I finished reading:

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern Still Life with Crows by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child Duplicity Dogged the Dachshund by Blaize Clement Broken by Karin Slaughter

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern – The end of the book did not feel as strong as the first half or so, but I still loved it. (5 out of 5 stars)

Still Life with Crows by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child (Pendergast #4) – This was another creepy read in the Pendergast series. I was so creeped out that I had to keep checking behind the shower curtain every time I walked into the bathroom. (4 out of 5 stars)

Duplicity Dogged the Dachshund by Blaize Clement (Dixie Hemingway #2) – This book was sort of depressing due to an elderly dachshund in declining health as well as some animal abuse. I hope the next one is a bit more uplifting. (4 out of 5 stars)

Broken by Karin Slaughter (Georgia #2) – I loved the tension between Sara and Will. (5 out of 5 stars)

On hold:

Crossed by Ally Condie

Crossed by Ally Condie – I was listening to the audiobook, borrowed from Overdrive, and then the holidays happened. The book expired. So this is on hold until it becomes available again.

  1. Happy New Year, Dixie! Nice to see that The Night Circus is a 5-star read for you. That is a must read for me this year. The Karin Slaughter books sound awesome too. Hope you enjoy Crossed when you pick it up again.


    • I think the first half drew me in more because I really wanted to understand how the stories all came together. Once they started to come together, it was a bit less suspenseful.


  2. I enjoyed Broken – I have been meaning to read more of her series.
    Wishing you a great reading week!
