What are you reading Monday? (8)

I don't know about you guys, but I had an awesome week of books!  I was on a roll last week with reading, and due to my excitement about new books, it's continued!  I devoured several books this week, and my TBR-I have pile is still growing.  I can't wait to read them and share them with you.   I don't normally get books I didn't buy or get at the library, so excuse my over-the-top excitement.  It was a boring week at work....   "It's Monday, What are you reading?" is hosted by One Person's Journey through a World of Books.  "In My Mailbox" is created by Kristi at The Story Siren.  I like to use a mix of the two.  (All links provided are to the book's Goodreads page.)

Books Finished this Week:
  • The Body Finder (Body Finder, 1) - Kimberly Derting
  • Baltimore Blues (Tess Monaghan, 1) - Laura Lippman
  • The Liar Society (Liar Society, 1) - Lisa and Laura Roeker
  • Little Women - Louisa May Alcott
New Books:
I got an ARC from Shelley Workinger.  I was super excited because I've heard great things about this book.  AND... It was signed!  Even had a note to me.... :)

I was really excited.  It's the first ARC that I've gotten that I haven't won in a contest.  I know, small things right.  It's been a super boring week at work.....

Book Soulmates  is hosting an awesome event each month called "Random Acts of Kindness" or R.A.K.  This week was my first time to receive a R.A.K.
No, I didn't get a kindle, but that would be a very awesome R.A.K.  Instead, I got three new ebooks:
  • Matched (Ally Condie)
  • Firelight (Sophie Jordan)
  • Anna and the French Kiss (Stephanie Perkins)
This R.A.K. was from the wonderful Ivy at Ivy Reads.  I was soooo excited to get these books, as they have been on the top of my TBR list for a long time.  I can't wait to get into them!  She totally made my day, and I can't thank her enough.  Thank you, Ivy!!! 

The neat thing about R.A.K. is that you can still sign up.  March sign ups run throughout March, so you can still participate and do something nice for another blogger.  Sign Ups can be found here.

Coming Up This Week:
  • Delirious - Danie Palmer
  • Powerless: Synthesis - Jason Letts
  • Anna and the French Kiss - Stephanie Perkins
So this week was a week of firsts for me.  It was quite exciting, but I do have a super busy at work coming up, so I tried to not set my goals too high.  Who knows, maybe I'll surprise myself.  What did you guys get this week?  What will you be diving into for the next couple of days?


  1. I am so jealous that you got Anna and the French Kiss! I so want to read this book! Can't wait to see your review! HOpe you will visit me

  2. Looks like you got some great stuff. Can't wait to see what you think of Anna and the French Kiss.

  3. A friend read matched and said it was really good. She compared it to Timer (movie that good. Watch it.). I am hoping to read it soon.
