It's Monday what are you reading?



This meme is where we share what we have been reading and what we are going to read. I have been busy and sick with flu for the last few weeks, but hopefully will be back for a while now.
Last week I read 3 books:
Tell It To The Skies
Tell it to the skies by Erica James tells the story of  Lydia who is sent to live with her grandparents after her parents die. Neither of her grandparents really want her there and she has a miserable childhood, only made better by the presence of her best friend Noah. Unfortunately when she is 18 tragedy strikes and she flees to Italy. We start the story with her step-daughter having met Noah's son which makes Erica go back over what she experienced as a child. I enjoyed this book a lot and would really recommend it, the only thing I have against it is that there were two many convenient tie-ups. But still it was a good book.
Sandstorm (A Sigma Force Novel)
I thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish. It has all my favourite aspects - action, a bit of romance, intrigue, lots of historical detail. In the Dan Brown genre, but a lot more action involved!

Lastly, what I am reading at the moment:
Duncton Found (The Duncton Chronicles)

I absolutely love the Duncton Chronicles, this is my third or fourth time reading the series. It tells the story of a community of moles, and although I thought I wouldnt enjoy it I have been hooked for years! Think The wind in the willows on a huge scale. I only started this last night, so havent got very far.

I have to admit that the Dan Brown genre isn't for me. It's just never appealed.

The Duncton chronicles looks interesting. I loved The WInd and the Willows.

Great reading week! I haven't even finished one book in the last week, let alone three!

You know, I've heard nothing but great things about the Dutton Chronicles honestly. Unfortunately I haven't had the chance to pick them up yet. I hope you enjoy your reading and start feeling better as well!

Have a fabulous reading week and thanks so much for stopping by earlier!
