Books Completed Last Week:

CHATEAU OF SECRETS by Melanie Dobson

I really enjoyed this book.  

Review is in the book's title.


THAT NIGHT by Chevy Stevens

It took until page 200 to get interesting, but not bad.  

Not like her other books, but to me her main focus was making bullying awareness more out in the open which it should be.

Review won't be on my blog until June 16, but you can see my review on Goodreads.


Book Currently Reading: 

A LONG TIME GONE by Karen White

 I loved her other books.


Books Up Next:

EMPIRE GIRLS by Suzanne Hayes & Loretta Nyhan

Looks good, doesn't it?
DELICIOUS by Ruth Reichl 

WOMAN OF ILL FAME by Erika Mailman


PERFECT by Rachel Joyce



The books below are not necessarily in the order I have planned to read them.  

I normally read in order of publication or tour date.

And....these are not for reading in the upcoming week.  They are books into and including all of 2014.

The "list" is a means of keeping me organized.  A visual display helps a lot for organization along with my Excel lists.  :)

I will be interested in what you think of THAT NIGHT.

It is a bit scary and addresses bullying.

THANKS for stopping, Kathy.

Elizabeth said...

You are so right, Mystica.

It was difficult to choose.

THANKS for stopping.

Elizabeth said...

I read your review on Goodreads, Laurel.

I didn't like it until the end. I didn't like the beginning with all the high school drama. :)

THANKS for stopping.

Elizabeth said...

I thought Empire Girls looked quite interesting as well.

THANKS for stopping, Irene.
