What Are You Reading? ~ Jan. 15, 2020

Happy Wednesday, friends! I've had a fabulous reading week! I hope you have too!

What are you Reading?  Let me know what your current read is, what you recently finished reading, and what you plan on reading next! 

Current Read

I'm currently reading two books. I'm rereading Lady Susan* by Jane Austen for the JASNA Reading Group I belong to. We meet this Saturday. I love meeting up with these ladies! 

I'm also rereading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone* by J.K. Rowling. I love the Harry Potter series and find my self rereading them starting around Christmas. I thought about maybe skipping it this year... I'm not sure if I'll read all of them, but I do love them, and it's easy to get sucked into the story. :)

Recently Finished

I tore through three books this week! Love it! Woot! I don't do that very often at all. :)

I finished reading Sanditon: Official iTV Tie-In Edition* by Kate Riordan. I enjoyed it. I hope there is a sequel in the works because the ending was a little disappointing.

My full review will be posted on Feb. 24 as part of the Sanditon Blog Tour. ~ I think I'm giving it 3.5 stars. I'm still rolling that around in my mind. 

I've watched the first two episodes of the series on PBS. Do you have plans to watch them?

I also read The Storm (H2O, #2)* by Virginia Bergin. I really liked it! It was much better than the first in the series. I adore crazy, irresponsible Ruby! All I can say is she is lucky she survived at all! For me, this was just a fun book to read. ~ 4.5 stars.

Plus, I read I Am Still Alive* by Kate Alice Marshall. I love survival stories, and that's what this was. Sixteen-year-old Jess, whose leg was severely damaged in a car accident - which also killed her mother. She is sent to live with her father, who lives in the middle of nowhere! She misses her mother and is irritated with her father. Shortly after she gets there, her father is murdered, and she is left alone. It's almost winter, she knows nothing about surviving in a forest, and she is worried the men who killed her father will come back. Thank goodness Bo, her dad's dog is there. Jess is angry, scared, and has a strong will to survive. This was an intense, action-packed story that had me on the edge of my seat! ~ 4.5 stars.

What's next?

I'm not sure, but I'm thinking about reading Call it What You Want by Brigid Kemmerer. It's been sitting on my shelf for a while and would like to read it! Lol! It looks cute.

Wow! What a great week for me! :) Like I said, that doesn't happen much. I hope it happens again! Lol! 

Please share what you've been reading! I'd love to hear! 


  1. Whew! Three in one week and now juggling two at once. You're on a reading terror, Candy. :) Bummer about that Sanditon adaption not wrapping up well. I'm hoping to watch the show soon since I taped it.

    I'm reading Mortal Arts by Anna Lee Huber, a historical mystery.

    1. Hey, Sophia Rose! I know, right?! Dancing a jig over here! Three is a lot for me! Lol! For this week, to be fair, Lady Susan is a very short story. Yeah, it is too bad about Sanditon. I think if they would say there is a sequel, then it would make me happier. To know that things might work out the way I had hoped. That's why I'm rolling around the 3.5 to 4 stars. I did enjoy it, though!

      Mortal Arts looks good! I hope you enjoy it! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Hoping I will be able to join you this Saturday!
