It's Monday, What Are you Reading? (#64)

It's Monday, What are you reading? is a weekly event hosted by Sheila at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books to list the books completed last week, the books currently being read and the books to be finished this week.

I'm back! After almost 2 weeks of blogging-isolation and reading-ban I was so starved to finally read something that as soon as my exam was over I devoured books I had on my most pressing TBR list. On Friday and Saturday I read 3 books (sure they weren't that long but still ;-) and I am so glad to be able to read once again without the guilt of knowing I should be studying instead. :-D

So here is what I read last weekend (and as I ahven't done an It's Monday! post for weeks I'll also mention the books I read 2 weeks ago):

Books I completed 

2 weeks ago:

I am a sucker for fairy tales so when I heard that this was Book #1 in a new paranormal fairy tale retelling series I was curious and picked it up. This is a paranormal retelling of Alice in Wonderland and it was quite interesting. 

I was a bit disappointed by Legacy the 3rd book in the Ganzfield series. Kate Kaynak spoiled me with how amazing Minder and Adversary were, so after the thrilling, fast paced first 2 books I found Legacy lacking and quite slow. But with Accused, the 4th book in the seris Kate Kaynak is back, Accused was just as fantastic as Minder! My detailed review will be posted on Book Lovers Inc. soon.

and read last week after my exam on Thursday:

Wow, this was really great! I loved the rich and detailed world building and how Tiffany Allee blended fantasy and supernatural species into the real world of nowadays was smooth and read real. My detailed review will be posted on January 29th, when Tiffany will stop by to answer a few of my questions.

(Book #1 in the Sypricon Masters series)

I have had this book on my to-read list for some time now and was quite curious to discover Sara Brookes' erotic sci-fi series. It was a very short read and it was more BDSM erotica than sci-fi really. My review will be posted on Book Lovers Inc. soon. 

Priestess of the Nile by Veronica Scott

I love anything to do with Ancient Egypt! I love the mythology, the architecture, the hyeroglyphs, so when I saw this new Carina Press title was set in Ancient Egypt I knew I had to raed it. My review will be posted on February 8th, you'll just have to wait until then.

Book I am currently reading

And once again I picked this one up to continue reading it. Despite the detailed storytelling (or maybe due to that) I find it stalling and the lack of fast paced action keeps me from getting involved in the story.

Books I can't wait to start

I had this yummy book staring at me from my Kindle for the past couple of weeks and now that my exam is over and that its release day is drawing near it's finally time for me to start reading it! I can't wait!! :-D

Another exciting-looking new release. I just love thrilling UF series with kickass heroines! :-D

And what are you reading this week?
