Its Monday! What Are You Reading? (8th October)

8 Oct

Its Monday! What are you Reading? is a weekly bookish meme held on Book Journey by Sheila. It’s a great place to discuss your week in reading and see what others are reading too.

I had a fairly quiet week so i could get a fair bit of reading time. Now its getting colder i love curling up at the end of the day in the warm with a blanket and a book.

Books Read

I read one book last week, Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult. I am a massive fan of her books and I’ve loved most of the ones that i have read. This book was no exception and it was very good. I got very into this story and it was one of those that i couldnt put down once i started.

Reading Now

At the minute I’m currently reading Mom You Just Broke Facebook by Jay Rivera on my kindle. Its a book that contains funny Facebook quotes. Well at the minute I’m currently trying to find one that is funny. It might be the format that is putting me off as if it looked a bit more like Facebook quotes i might be able to get into it a bit more.

Next Up

Next up is the final book in my Transworld reading challenge The Labyrinth of Osiris by Paul Sussman. This isnt my normal genre of book but it does sound very good.

Synopsis -Since they last met, life has moved on for Yusuf Khalifa of the Luxor Police and Jerusalem detective Arieh Ben-Roe. About to become a father for the first time, Ben-Roi finds himself investigating a gruesome murder in Jerusalem’s Armenian Cathedral. The victim, a journalist named Rivka Kleinberg, had been researching an article into the Israeli sex-trafficking industry. When a link emerges between Kleinberg and an English engineer who disappeared from Luxor in 1931, Ben-Roi turns for help to his old friend and sparring partner Khalifa.

 Khalifa’s life too has changed, although in his case not for the better. Preoccupied with personal tragedy and immersed in an investigation of his own – a series of mysterious well-poisonings in Egypt’s Eastern desert – he agrees for old time’s sake to do some digging for his Israeli colleague. In the process Ben-Roi might just be giving Khalifa his lust for life back.

 Inexorably the two investigations entwine, drawing Ben-Roi and Khalifa into a sinister web of violence, abuse, corporate malpractice and anti-capitalist terrorism. And at the heart of the web lies the Labyrinth – a three-thousand year-old ancient Egyptian mystery that has already taken Rivka Kleinberg’s life – and hers will not be the last…

Books Brought

I brought one book this week, Friends With Full Benefits by Luke Young. I read the first book in this series a couple of weeks ago so I’ve brought the second. I hope this one is as good as the first.

Synopsis – For best-selling romance novelist Jillian Grayson, writer’s block is a thing of the past now that her clandestine relationship with her son’s best friend, Brian Nash, has lifted her out of a post-divorce funk. The prospect of breaking the news to her son seems daunting, but it’s nothing compared to the nightmare of meeting Brian’s superstrict, off-the-wall, disapproving parents. After Jillian, Brian and his younger brother Jim, learn an eye-opening secret about the Nash parents they all go scurrying back to Miami where Jillian’s best friend Victoria finds Brian’s sexy, but innocent college senior brother to be just what the doctor ordered. But when Jim comes on a little too seriously, will Victoria lose interest and return to her life of casual fun or will things get even more complicated?

So, What Are You Reading?
