It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (109)

This is a fun weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Books I read last week:
Indigo Blue by Catherine Anderson
Cryer’s Cross by Lisa McMann
Before I Wake by Rachel Vincent

The book I’m reading now:
Queen of the Dead
After being sent back from the light, Alona Dare - former homecoming queen, current Queen of the Dead - finds herself doing something she never expected: working. Instead of spending days perfecting her tan by the pool (her typical summer routine when she was, you know, alive), Alona must now cater to the needs of other lost spirits. By her side for all of this - ugh - “helping of others” is Will Killian: social outcast, seer of the dead, and someone Alona cares about more than she’d like.

Before Alona can make a final ruling on Will’s “friend” or “more” status, though, she discovers trouble at home. Her mom is tossing out Alona’s most valuable possessions, and her dad is expecting a new daughter with his wicked wife. Is it possible her family is already moving on? Hello! She’s only been dead for two months! Thankfully, Alona knows just the guy who can put a stop to this mess.

Unfortunately for Alona, Will has other stuff on his mind, and Mina, a young (and beautiful) seer, is at the top of the list. She’s the first ghost-talker Will’s ever met—aside from his father—and she may hold answers to Will’s troubled past. But can she be trusted? Alona immediately puts a check mark in the “clearly not” column. But Will is - ahem - willing to find out, even if it means leaving a hurt and angry Alona to her own devices, which is never a good idea.

Books that spark my interest this week:
Never to Sleep by Rachel Vincent
A Girl’s Guide to Vampires by Katie MacAlister
Comanche Magic by Catherine Anderson

  1. I like your preview of books but do you do previews on children's books?
