It's Monday December 9th 2013! 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 put op the Christmas tree this weekend. We have been having this terrible grey weather for months now and I felt like putting up the tree for a month and a half already. As we have Sinterklaas on the 5th of December (check out this great guest post Wendy wrote over at The Book Wheel) I cannot put it up before but this weekend I finally made my home all Christmassy. I have been struggling a bit with my reading. I guess I have too much to read and too many books I want to read and end up picking the ones I should read first which might not be the books my subconscious wants to read. But as long as there is not a clear signal when I stand in front of my shelves I will go on picking up the books I need to read for review first.
Last week I finished Is This Tomorrow by Caroline Leavitt, Raveled by Anne McAneny and I gave up on The Troop by Nick Cutter.

Can't wait to hear your thoughts on Perfect. I finished it recently and need to gather my thoughts about it. :) Thought it was great!

Hahaha, you DNF'd? The covers for Mayhem and Perfect looks great. I can't believe you almost finished 3 books in ONE week!? Go Ciska!

I understand what you mean! I've read some books for review lately that I didn't love, but I said I would review them so there I was! I hope your next few books are fantastic!

I've been wanting to read Mayhem by Sarah Pinborough.
The Troop was really good, IMO, a mix of Lord of the Flies meets that Guillermo DelToro series 'The Strain.'

I read The Troop recently and didn't like it. I had thought about just giving up on it but soldiered through it, though I almost wish I hadn't.

I'm interested to know what you'll think of Perfect. It's rather different from her other book. I enjoyed it.

I'd love to hear what you thought of the Caroline Leavitt book -- I liked her previous novel, with a few minor hesitations. I have Perfect coming up as well! I really enjoyed Rachel Joyce's last book, so I'm excited about this one too. Happy reading!

Too bad about The Troop... the cover really pulled me in.

New titles to check into! Thanks! I'm picking up a big memoir/biography for Jazz Age January. It might just take me most of December.

The cover on Mayhem would be enough for me to pick it up!

Have a great week.
