It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 2/6/17

6 Feb

25902198I was so proud of myself – I spent almost every night before I fell asleep, reading for at least 20 minutes and then spend a good majority of my Saturday and Sunday reading as well which means I was able to finish The Passion of Dolssa by Julie Berry, which I really enjoyed. I am a huge fan of historical fiction (always have been) and being Catholic, I feel, gave me a little more background into the story. There were a lot of characters to keep track of, but the story was really intriguing and the friendship portrayed between the two main characters was genuine and felt very real.

I was also able to read The Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro a fun story of two descendants of Holmes and Watson who are attending the same boarding school and get embroiled in the murder of a classmate. I enjoyed this story because it was set in a present time and was fun to read in that you’re familiar with the backstory but it brings a little something new to the Sherlock and Watson we all know and love, but also didn’t shy away from substance abuse and rape. I’m hoping that we’ll learn more about the characters in the next book as these are serious issues that aren’t really dealt with in any way as they characters are overly busy solving the murder.

I don’t have any immediate plans for reading this week, I’ve got a bunch of books on hold, so we’ll see what comes in first:

  • Finding Perfect by Elly D. Swartz
  • The Great American Whatever  by Tim Federle
  • Paper Wishes by Lois Sepahban
  • Two Naomis by Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich
