It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

aaa1

Its Monday! What Are You Reading is a weekly meme run by Book Journey and you can mention books you've just finished, are currently reading and any you plan to read this week. You can leave a link to your blog and read other bloggers posts.

 

I got a lot of reading done this week and managed to get through three books:

 

Close To The Broken Hearted by Michael Hiebert

Famous: A Novel by Blake Crouch

The Cove by Ron Rash

 

I loved the first two but was disappointed with The Cove. I'd heard good things about it but found it slow to begin with, it was a quick read though and the ending was good.

 Close To the Broken Hearted  Famous: A Novel The Cove


Next up is No Harm Can Come To A Good Man which is the latest novel by James Smythe. It's half term this week so not sure how much time I'll get to read but I love his books and have been looking forward to this one. I managed to be first in the queue for a library copy as well.

    1. Thanks Tanya you too, if The Cove had been a big book I may even have given up on it.

  4. It can be so frustrating when a novel is so hard to get into when you know it has a lot of potential! I've heard very good things of 'Famous', so I'm happy you enjoyed it as well! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you enjoy all of them!

  5. Too bad The Cove wasn't that good...it sounds interesting. Good to hear the other two books were good.

    ENJOY your reading week.
