It's Monday, What Are you Reading? (#115)

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.

Hey Everyone,

We'll have a busy week at Ex Libris (with the Bout of Books Read-a-Thon starting as well as two author guests tomorrow), so I thought I'd get an early start on the week and tell you about the books I have read last week:

Books I completed

Gone with the Wolf by Kristin Miller
(Book #1 in the Seattle Wolf Pack series)

This was my first book I read from Kristin Miller, and sadly it didn't blow me away. My detailed review will be posted on Tuesday, but until then you can enter to win a Gone with the Wolf prize pack on the blog right now.

This was a delightful little novella: sweet, funny and sexy, I loved it and Brighton Walsh instantly became a must-read author for me :-) You can read my review here.

This was a modern light Cinderella retelling with not much depth or substance, both the characters and the plot remained shallow, but it was a quick read. 

The Mad Earl's Bride by Loretta Chase was a lovely, well written historical romance novella I enjoyed a lot :-) My review will be posted soon.

Wow, this was very hot and well written, I just discovered Cathryn Fox and added her to my must-read-authors list. A very short but steamy novella, great for a quick bite of titillating story :-) Detailed review to be posted soon. (And make sure to stop by tomorrow as Cathryn will be here with an interview ;-)

Books I'm currently reading
I started reading All the Way by Jennifer Probst but I wasn't really enchanted. Though it is described as a foodie romance (with the hero being in charge of a restaurant and the heroine being a restaurant critic), I didn't find too much description of food in the first 30%, and both the hero and heroine were shallow and boring. Will see if it improves later... 

I started reading A Most Scandalous Proposal by Ashlyn MacNamara because I was craving a lovely, heart-warming historical romance, and it sounded like it might fit the bill, but there was too much going on and it required too much effort to try to keep up with all the characters and going ons, so I put it down after 24%, will see if I'll give it another go. 

Books I can't wait to start 

I'm seriously getting impatient to read Tessa Bailey's new Line of Duty series! :-)

And what are you reading this week?
