Sunday Post #12 / It's Monday. What Are You Reading?



The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

I hope everyone had a great week. This week I reviewed Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and Slated by Teri Terry. I also decided I wanted to read some edgier fare for autumn so I'm open to suggestions- anyone have ideas for good autumn reads? Anything fantasy or mysterious is welcome.
Reviews last week:

Fangirl

Slated

Both were very good! Fractured (the sequel to Slated) is up next along with whatever else I come up with.

Fractured (Slated, #2)

Also on my TBR

Magic Marks the Spot (The Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates, #1)

Here's some fun from around the blogosphere.

The Falconer chapter 3 is here.

The Falconer (The Falconer, #1)

The new Thor trailer can be seen here.

Who deserves to win the Game of Thrones? This is an interesting discussion, actually dating back to March, but it's a good rundown of the contenders and their pros and cons. The comments are really the interesting part. Beware MASSIVE spoilers once you get to the comments!

How was your week?

  1. Thanks for the link to the GoT article! Very interesting read and some of the comments were quite well thought out. Has me thinking now who will finally come out in the end. So can't wait for Season 4 to start!!!

    I don't know how you feel about zombie books, but if you get the chance, maybe check out Zombie Fallout 1 by Mark Tufo for an autumn read. I read it for the first time last year in the fall and was so glad I did! It was so much more than just a zombie book and it had a lot of humor, which I wasn't expecting but worked perfectly. Just a thought. :)

    Another more cozy mystery type book that I've really enjoyed is Nearly Departed in Deadwood by Ann Charles! Great mystery, spicy, with a very spunky main character! I've read the entire series and absolutely love it...Probably my favorite cozy mystery series! And there is supposed to be a new book in the series coming out in the next couple of months, I think...yay!

    Hope these suggestions help!

    1. I thought so too about the GoT article. I was almost afraid to post it due to spoilers, but some of the comments got me thinking about stuff I hadn't considered! Anyway thanks for the recommendations- I need 'em. I'm at a point where I have stuff I've bought or am thinking of reading but other than the Slated sequel nothing I'm super excited about, so maybe I need some new ideas. :)

      I will definetly check both of those suggestions out. Thanks!

  7. Good books you have there. I was thinking about your request for recommendations. Not sure if you meant horror, suspense, mystery? I recommend Brilliance by Marcus Sakey for a cross between a UF and a thriller. A few bloggers have liked The Pines by Blake Crouch. I haven't read it yet but was thinking about it--more fantasy/horror I think, could be wrong. Will rack my brain for more :)

  8. I love dystopia, and will be checking out Slated. I would recommend Prodigy and Legend as autumn reads. They are the first two books in a dystopia series. Have a great reading week.
