It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey

Still not doing very well with Paris in July, it's like the curse of the readathon all over again! Though thinking back, I have read a few books with France as a setting. To make up for my failure I read four fantastic books last week, so check out the links to my reviews below.

Read last week:
The Uninvited by Liz Jensen
Criminal by Karin Slaughter
Last to Die by Tess Gerritsen
Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry

Currently reading:
Bed of Nails by Antonin Varenne
666 Park Avenue by Gabriella Pierce

Upcoming reads:
Three Strong Women by Marie Ndiaye
Blackwood by Gwenda Bond

Search terms:*

"google killed bookworm"

"how to modernize a large shelving unit"
Is there a gap in the market for book blogger DIY tips?

"james smythe the testimony video game"
Interesting thought, though what would be the goal?

"undead clowns"

"why in shadow of night does matthew not meet himself"
Good question, I think it's just written off as magic stuff.

*Idea stolen borrowed from Amanda's Clock Rewinders feature.


  1. Undead Clowns? A book I would avoid if I wanted to continue to sleep peacefully and without the light on.

    Sounds like a crimey week. My mum is reading the latest Karin Slaughter in paperback and she's enjoying it. I'm pretty sure she is reading them out of order but she seems happy so I haven't said anything.

  2. I love the search terms and your commentary. And I concur with your response to the Matthew question. The author doesn't explain this at all really. He can't be at the same place at the same time (or it seems place doesn't have anything to do with it) so he just isn't. Though, if I remember correctly he freaked a couple members of his historical entourage when he just disappeared in front of them right around the time he and Diana arrived.

    1. Yes, as in he's magically removed from timeline. I wonder if she'll comment about it in the next book...I will try and remember to ask Deborah when I meet her in September. Interesting to know if Matthew remembers things being weird when he's back in the future.

  3. I have seen a few bloggers now that post their search terms and I have to say it really amuses me. DIY tips for bloggers? Yes, please! I love book blogs AND DIY blogs. You'd be combining two of my favourite things. Great reading...4 books is pretty good for one week :)

  4. I was just telling a coworker today how, despite liking the show, I've hesitated about reading Tess Gerritsen's Rizzoli and Isles series. When a series is already several books, I can only think about how long it will take to catch up. But maybe I could handle 10 or 11 of 'em.

    Love the search terms. Mine are never so interesting.


Everyone loves comments, right? I read them all and do my best to visit your blog if you leave a link (and you're not a spambot).
