It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a post to share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It is hosted by Kathryn at Bookdate.
Okay, between feeling under the weather for the last half of the week and then having family in during the weekend, I totally didn’t get around to setting up blog posts. So, today’s post will be a weekly recap AND TBR. A mix of my Monday and Sunday posts, if you will. So, let’s hop to it!
Before I start on my books, I want to mention that I’m almost done with the second season of Veronica Mars. I binged a bit of it last week and I plan on finishing it and starting season 3 this week.
I did read 3 books from my weekly TBR, so I’m quite proud of myself.
From Weekly or Monthly TBR — ✌
Graphic Novel – 💥
Recommended to Me — 🎮
Novella/ short story – 🌱
*anything under 200 pages*
ARC – 🐲

- Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – Such a charming romance. I really liked this one… enough that I decided to read more by this author…
- Mouth to Mouth by Tessa Bailey 🍰 🌱
- Heat Stroke by Tessa Bailey 🍰 🌱
⭐⭐⭐⭐.5 – Right after I finished Mouth to Mouth I checked this one and shouted with joy about the couple it features. Really enjoyed this one.
- Wonder by R.J. Palacio 🎮 ✌
⭐⭐⭐ – Honestly? Not a fan. It isn’t my type of book, but also I disliked the ending. What is the point of this book?
- Consort of Secrets by Eva Chase 🍰
- Vivid Avowed by Kaydence Snow ✌🍰
- Teen Titans: Raven by Kami Garcia 💥✌
⭐⭐⭐⭐ – I enjoyed this one and I’m so excited she is writing Beast Boy’s story next!!
So, I started to not feel well– was fighting off getting sick. What do I read when I don’t feel well? Ilona Andrews….
- Burn For Me ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- White Hot ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- Wildfire ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
- Diamond Fire ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 🌱
- Sapphire Flames ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 🐲
One reason I picked this series over Kate Daniels (besides the shorter length) is because I have the ARC of Sapphire Flames and figured it wasn’t too early to read it. SO GOOD!
I’m about 35% into Consort of Thorns. I took a break with it when I started to turn for the worst. Now that I’m done with Sapphire Flames and feeling better I’ll pick this one back up.
This Week’s TBR List…
Okay, I know I said just a few weeks ago that if I didn’t read the books on this list I wouldn’t list them again for a week or so — to help take pressure off, but I’m making an except for this week because of my time feeling sick last week.
- Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds
I want to read more Jason Reynolds, but I do better with audiobook versions of prose. So, I’m going to listen to this one during my commute. I mean, I’ve recommended this one enough times I’ve GOT to read it.
- Consort of Thorns by Eva Chase
My current book.
- The Best Thing by Mariana Zapata
NEW MARIANA ZAPATA!! HOW CAN I NOT READ THIS?!
- Matchmaking Beyond the Veil by Mara Townsend
I’ve had this one out from KU for almost a month now. I just keep forgetting I have it… it looks so, so good.
The Netgalley approvals…
- I Wanna Sext You Up by Evie Claire
- You’d Be Mine by Erin Hahn
- House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A. Craig
