It's Monday the 17th of June! What are you reading?

It's Monday! What are You Reading! is a weekly hosted by Sheila over at Book Journey. This weekly is meant to keep you people updated on what I read the last week and what I am planning to read the upcoming week.

I read some really great books this week. I finished The Book of Secrets by Elizabeth Joy Arnold. The end was really good and surprising. The Life List by Lori Nelson Spielman made me laugh out loud at various occasions. Letters from Skye was a bittersweet read.

I am currently reading The Last Banquet by Jonathan Grimwood. I loved the cover and there is food involved.

Next up are The Wednesday Daughters by Meg Waite Clayton and The Never List by Koethi Zan.

On Thursday I am posting about my experiences with the books I spot other people reading. You are free to join me in my Train on Thursday posts.

The Literary Blog Hop button
Later this week The Literary Giveaway Blog Hop starts organized by Judith over at Leeswammes' Blog. There are two days left to sign up and you can hop around the blogs starting June 22nd.

I am still contemplating whether I will participate in the Bloggiesta next weekend. It is a great way to get some work on your blog done with a lot of support from other people in the community but I am not sure yet if I have enough time to participate.

I have Letters from Skye, too. I'm glad you liked it.

I don't see a Bloggiesta next weekend on this list: http://www.bloggiesta.com/ Only a Bloggiesta chat. Hopefully we can both be present for that. The next mini Bloggiesta is in July.

I love a book that can me make me laugh. As usual I've been reading books with heavy topics. It's time for something lighthearted!

Ack, is there a Bloggiesta coming up?? If so then I'll want to participate. Those are so great :)

I'll see you around during the Literary Blog Hop!

The Book of Secrets looks good to me.

I have Letters from Skye on my upcoming books list. I have been to the Isle of Skye in Scotland. LOVE that place.

THANKS for your post.

I want to participate in bloggiesta, but I think I will be out next weekend :( I have never been in a bloggiesta, and I'm really looking forward to doing it (I have a lot of blogwork to do!).

Is it me, or do books covers look more beautiful than they did years ago? All of your books look absolutely lovely, enjoy them!

Have a great week,
kind regards,
