It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week.  It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.  Click on the picture to be taken to Sheila at One Person's Journey Through A World of Books!

I started the week by finishing Poison  by Sara Poole.  It wasn't a very fast read, but I ended up really enjoying the story.  I love it when a historical fiction makes me curious about the actual facts in the story.

I then read The Fire Opal by Regina McBride.  The story was very intricate with some very beautiful world set up.  I just found myself not very connected to the main character or her adventures.  

I then picked up The Wolf of Tebron by Suzanne Lakin.  I loved the setting and the words of advice throughout the whole story.  It had a fairy tale sort of feel and reminded of Aesop's fables.  I just didn't feel the ending that way I think I was meant too for some reason. 

I had hoped to finish Matched by Ally Condie this weekend.  Instead, I had a very impromptu trip to visit some girlfriends who live  2 1/2 hours away.  We ended up going to a free music festival.  The main line up included Macy Gray, The Backstreet Boys, and Brett Michael's.   It's an very odd combination but it was lots of fun.  I even enjoyed Michael's cover of Sublime's What I Got.

So for this week, I will finish Matched.  Next, I plan to read The Warrior Heir by Cinda Chima.  I also want to read Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel and if there's time I'll finish The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon.
