Its Monday Here's What I'm Reading

Monday, June 13, 2011
Time for another Monday's  meme with Shelia @ One Person's Journey Through a World of Books where I get to answer the question, "What are you reading?"

Last week marked my first full week of summer vacation. The weather here in the Midwest has been sweltering and it looks like summer has arrived ahead of schedule.  With such heat it is easy to stay home in the air-conditioning and try putting a dent in my overly crowded TBR pile.

Books Read/Listened to/Reviewed

The Last Thing I Remember by Andrew Klavan

Exciting and action-packed this is one being considered for the 2012 Book Battle list. It is the first in a series and left a lot of unanswered questions.

Liar Society by Lisa and Laura Roecker

Fantastic mystery with wonderful characters and plot. A must read for anyone who enjoys trying to figure out whodunit.
Angel Fire by Courtney Allison Moulton

The first book in a series about demons and angels. Lots of action, vivid fight scenes, and the hint of romance. Characterization however,  a bit flat.  

The Cupcake Queen by Heather Hepler

Very charming story dealing with lots of teen issues. Loved the writing and the characters. This book is also being considered for the 2012 Book Battle list.
Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck (Audio)

Awesome book. Loved, loved, loved the plot, characters and setting. A must read if you enjoy mythology and folklore, action, suspense and romantic tension.

Tiger's Quest by Collen Houck

The second book continues the character's struggles to find a way to break a 300 year old curse. Sets up a romantic triangle and takes us to Shangri-la. Ends with a cliff hanger that has me anxious to read the next book.
The Shifter by Janice Hardy

Another 2012 Book Battle nominee with a very interesting plot and characters. A little difficult to get into at first as the author world builds, but has a lot of action and is a great start to a new middle school series.

So that is what I have been reading this week. What did you read?
