Good Books & Good Wine Update

Hey Lovelies, I am borrowing Kate’s super awesome idea of combining the IMM meme (hosted by The Story Siren) and the It’s Monday What Are You Reading meme (hosted by One Person’s Journey Through A World of Books) into one post.

In My Mailbox:

The Last Stormlord by Glenda Larke (signed)
Life of Glass by Jillian Cantor (signed)

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? (Actually it’s Saturday…)

Read Last Week:
The Dead Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan
The Maze Runner by James Dashner
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
Rampant by Diana Peterfreund

Currently Reading:

War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy

I Plan to Read:
Brava Valentine by Adriana Trigiani

I also have a large backlog of reviews to write, so while everyone is off having fun at their readathons, I’ll be working on my reviewathon. 

And yes, that music you hear in the background of my vlog is from the Les Miserables Cast Recording.

About April (Books&Wine)

    I can't wait to read your thoughts on The Dead Tossed Waves and Before I Fall. I haven't read any of the Adriana Trigiani books but they look good so I will have to check out your reviews.

    I have yet to finish an Alexander Dumas novel although I have The Count of Monte Cristo. The Black Tulip is one I haven't heard of before. I hope you enjoy your reading this week.
