It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (8)
‘It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?’ is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!
Last week I read and review Loose Cannon by Jack Steele (A Detective Joe Stone Novel Book 1),
Sleuthing with the Enemy (Unnatural Alliances #2) by Danielle Hardgrave, and
Saturday Short-Story Review: The Anger Volcano – A Book About Anger for Kids by Amanda Greenslade.
Currently reading – Jilted (Discovered by Love #1) by Carla Laureano. I started this one yesterday and finished 40%.
This week I’m reading –

Despite their impressive title and glorious past, the Fitzmartins are crumbling under the pressures of the new century. And in the cold isolation of these new surroundings, Hester ends up hopelessly besotted with her young mistress, Lady Lucy.
Accompanying Lucy on her London Season, Hester is plunged into a heady and decadent world. But hushed whispers of another war swirl beneath the capital… and soon, Hester finds herself the keeper of some of society’s most dangerous secrets…
and I will read this paperback parallel to this book-
