What are you reading? #69

What are you reading on Monday? is a weekly meme hosted by Rachel at Home Girl's Book Blog where you post books completed last week and plans for upcoming books. Jump over to her blog and see who else is participating.

As promised, there is quite the list of "read" titles this week!  In fact, I think I'll dub it "The Week of Reading".  With everything going on, it was EXACTLY what I needed to take a mental vacation.....ever need one of those?  Anyway, time to share what's going on in my reading world and maybe add a few things to your wish list.  ^_^

Books I've read this week

Return of the Bunny Suicides by Andy Riley
(I adore bunnies, and this book appeals to my strange sense of humour. It kept me smiling during a treatment.)

Pocket Cats #9: Friends Forever by Kitty Wells
(I needed a tissue at the end. I always tear up for PC's, but this is the last in the series!)

I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have To Kill You by Ally Carter
Young Adult
(Cammie's life at spy school is hilarious. This was recommended by a very dear friend. Reading this made my heart monitor beep during a treatment, which made me laugh even more.  ^_^)

Young Adult, Urban Fantasy
(Another instalment in Clary's life - have become a bit unsure of her character...)
City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

Candle Man: The Society of Dread by Glen Dakin
(Book 2 in this dark saga - I love Chloe!  Be sure to check out my review of book 1, book 2, a guest blog from the author himself, PLUS your chance to win!)

The Collaborator by Margaret Leroy
(A great insight into the Nazi occupation of Guernsey - I've visited Jersey, another Channel Island so it was very easy to imagine Vivienne's story.  Check out my review over at Cem's Book Hideout...)

The Vampire Hunters by Pete Johnson
Children's 9+
(Being half a vampire is tricky - learning how to flit [transformation for flying] is extremely difficult for Marcus.)

Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck
Young Adult
(In spite of a lack of conflict & Kelsey having a personality crisis, I do want to read the next one.  Find out more in my review over at Cem's Book Hideout...)

Pocket Cats #8:  Magical Mayhem by Kitty Wells
(Wooooooooo! Maddy & Rachel meet a disgruntled ghost!)

Threads by Sophia Bennett
Young Adult
(A funny and moving story, addressing conflicts and family separation while providing an opportunity for a very talented girl.  My review is live now over at Cem's Book Hideout...)

Six Words and a Wish by Karen McCombie
(The ARC came with cute sparkly butterflies inside! [shiny ones rather than sparkly] My review...)

Cross My Heart by Sasha Gould
Young Adult
(I adore tales set in Venice, especially historicals - lots of intrigue!  Check out my review over at Cem's Book Hideout...) 

Wanted! by Kate Thompson
(Find out what happens when a Roman Emperor made a horse his consul...)

Divine Freak by Fiona Dunbar
(How cool is the cover! It's as great as the story inside about a girl who can see ghosts. And hear them.  My review...)

The Malice Family by Abie Longstaff
Children's Educational
(Another awesome read from Abie, about a poor raccoon who has to put up with his evil family.  My review...)

Rockaholic! by C J Skuse
Young Adult
(If you want to learn about a music idol fanatic, this is the perfect book.  My review....plus a chance for you to win a copy all your own!)

City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
Young Adult, Urban Fantasy
(I'm getting into this a lot more now, and beginning to like Clary more...though I do alternate between liking her and hating her.)

That's it for this week! I don't expect there to be such a long list next week, as I'm back to work on 31st, but there will hopefully be a couple of good reads! 17 books isn't bad going.
