It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?


I love being a part of this and I hope you do too!  As part of this weekly meme I love to encourage you all to go and visit the others participating in this meme. Fair warning… this meme tends to add to your reading list!

It’s been a pretty good week.  It was busy, I had a sick day, but all in all… I got some reading in which always makes me happy 😀

This past week I posted:

City Of Fallen Angels by Cassandra Clare (ooh I am loving the Mortal Instrument series!)

My Review Of The Tassimo Coffee Pot

I still have reviews to post!  As for what I am reading now…

1bCecilia Fitzpatrick lives to be perfect: a perfect marriage, three perfect daughters, and a perfectly organized life. Then she finds a letter from her husband, John-Paul, to be opened only in the event of his death. She opens it anyway, and everything she believed is thrown into doubt. Meanwhile, Tess O’Leary’s husband, Will, and her cousin and best friend, Felicity, confess they’ve fallen in love, so Tess takes her young son, Liam, and goes to Sydney to live with her mother. There she meets up with an old boyfriend, Connor Whitby, while enrolling Liam in St. Angela’s Primary School, where Cecilia is the star mother. Rachel Crowley, the school secretary, believes that Connor, St. Angela’s PE teacher, is the man who, nearly three decades before, got away with murdering her daughter—a daughter for whom she is still grieving.

I started this one on audio today while I was painting the entryway and wow I really am getting into it.


Manuel Perrine doesn’t fear anyone or anything. A charismatic and ruthless leader, Perrine slaughters rivals as effortlessly as he wears his trademark white linen suit. Detective Michael Bennett once managed to put Perrine behind bars, the only official in the US ever to accomplish that. But now Perrine is out, and he has sworn to find and kill Bennett and everyone dear to him.

Detective Bennett, along with his ten adopted children, their nanny, and his grandfather, are hidden safely on a rural California farm, with guards courtesy of the FBI’s witness protection program. Perrine begins to embark on an escalating series of assassinations across the country, killings whose brazenness and audacity bring into question the possibility of safety and law in the US. The FBI has no choice but to ask Detective Bennett to risk it all in Perrine’s war on America.

My guilty pleasure series – you may not enjoy Patterson but I bet you would like this series.  Fantastic on audio!


The Mortal War is over, and sixteen-year-old Clary Fray is back home in New York, excited about all the possibilities before her. She’s training to become a Shadowhunter and to use her unique power. Her mother is getting married to the love of her life. Downworlders and Shadowhunters are at peace at last. And—most importantly of all—she can finally call Jace her boyfriend.

But nothing comes without a price.

Someone is murdering Shadowhunters, provoking tensions between Downworlders and Shadowhunters that could lead to a second, bloody war. Clary’s best friend, Simon, can’t help her—his mother just found out that he’s a vampire, and now he’s homeless. When Jace begins to pull away from her without explaining why, Clary is forced to delve into the heart of a mystery whose solution reveals her worst nightmare: she herself has set in motion a terrible chain of events that could lead to her losing everything she loves. Even Jace.

Loving this series!

  1. I’ve seen Cassandra Clare’s series on the shelves for years and they always look appealing. In fact, a friend has recommended them to me, too. I wonder if I’ll EVER get to read even a tiny percentage of the PLETHORA of good books out there! *sigh*

    And, yes, to me YA is great! 😀

  2. I listened to The Husband’s Secret on audio too, and loved it!! I quite like Patterson’s novels, Gone is still on my TBR pile, might have to check out the audio.
    Have a great week and happy reading Sheila 🙂

  3. I read The Husband’s Secret and loved it!!! I have Gone sitting on my shelf just waiting to find time to read – hoping it’s soon – I love the Bennett family and I bet it’s really good on audio!

    Have a great week!

  4. I have been eyeing up that Cassandra Clare series… maybe I should try it, too!

    Hey, I’m finally linking up again with It’s Monday – I also hope to have some time to visit people. Have a great week!

  5. I’m just about done with The Husband’s Secret. We’re discussing it at book club on Thursday night. It’s such a quick read, and definitely an interesting storyline! Hope you enjoy the whole thing!

  6. I’m reading De- witched: The Untold Story of the Evil Queen by E. L. Saranoff. After a weekend of “romances”, this is a LOT of fun. Also have Mortal Instruments and Ender’s Game in the TBRs for this week. I’ll wait on Husband’s Secret a while
