Its Monday! What Are You Reading?

Sheila at Book Journey runs It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Read in the last week:
I really liked Detained by Ainslie Paton, it had something going on the whole time. Set in both Shanghai and Australia, the characters weren't perfect but flawed, and I fell in love with all of them. I can't even remember what possessed me to choose it off the NetGalley shelf, however so pleased I did. I have a giveaway for this ebook going on at the moment on the Midwinter's Eve hop.

This was an audio that I finished listening to.  I found all the characters a little confusing, as I didn't listen consistently every day, however a great listen.
I read the first one in this trilogy, it was interesting and another of those small community and family contemporary romances that are pleasant to read.

At present I am reading:
Blackberry Winter by Sarah Jio  
I have wanted to try a book by Sarah Jio for awhile, so I am just starting this one today. Nicer still I chose it from a win over with Rachel at Fiktshun.

Angel's Blood by Nalini Singh
This is my audio reading, the first in the Guild Hunters series.

Next up:
While We Were Watching Downton Abbey by Wendy Wax.
I like Wendy Wax as an author and I have just about finished watching series 4 in the TV series so now is the time to make room for this book.


  1. I like the look and sound of Detained - it looks like something from Escape Publishing?

    I still haven't watched any Downton Abbey! I have the first series on DVD but I haven't had a chance to watch it yet.

    Have a great Christmas, Kathryn!

    1. Yes, Detained is from Escape Publishing. First book I have read out of there. Good start!

  2. Enjoy your reads for the week

    Happy Holidays!

  3. We have such similar reading tastes, While We Were Watching Downton Abbey is on my TBR stack and so is Blackberry Winter, Sarah Jio's writing is beautiful. I think I've also got that Sherryl Woods trilogy on my kindle, *sigh* not enough hours in the day lol

    Merry Christmas Kathryn ... enjoy the festivities and holiday break!

    1. I love finding people with similar tastes, enough to be alike and enough to stretch me out of my comfort zone!

  4. LOVED While We Were Watching Downton Abbey...hope you love it, too. And I want to read 16 Lighthouse Road. Enjoy your reading...and your holidays. Here's MY WEEKLY SUNDAY/MONDAY UPDATES

  5. I hope you like Sarah Jio as much as I do. I have not read While We Were Watching Downton Abbey yet. Happy Christmas
