It's Monday! What are you Reading March 14, 2011?

This meme starts at One Person's Journey Through A World of Books!
What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.

I had another good reading week, finishing four books- two on Audible; actually five books if you count The Copper Beech Audio by Maeve Binchy.   I posted three reviews, two with ARC Giveaways; an author Q&A Interview; the Enquiring meme post; two blog tour posts and my Sunday post.

I did visit at least 10 blogs over the week although I didn't get to visit back to my Monday Reading visitors. I plan to visit them all this week. 
These were last week's posts plus Winner posts not listed.
Finished Reading:
The Linen Queen: A Novel 
The Linen Queen by Patricia Falvey - Hachette Fiction.
A different and enjoyable read. I will post my review and ARC Giveaway on Wednesday.

Pale Demon: Library Edition (The Hollows)Audible:
by Kim Harrison.
I really enjoy this series. Very intense.
I'll post a review later this week; maybe Saturday.

God Wars: Living With Angels God Wars: Living With Angels 
by Rob Tobin.
This was not what I expected and it was interesting. 
Review, Author Guest Post and eBook Giveaway to be posted on Tuesday 3/15 as part of Bewitching Blog Tours.
Product Description
Sixteen-year-old old gymnast, Diana Jalinowski, had it all, including a shot at the Olympics, thanks to her talent, dedication, and a strange “other” power that allowed her to do things others couldn’t. Then a deranged hoodlum drove Diana off the road and into a wheelchair, killing her family in the process.
Years later, as a paraplegic law student, Diana meets Professor Lessage, an odd, brooding man who talks her into doing a paper on the legal ramifications of the Salem Witch trials. Suddenly Diana’s life takes another sharp turn, right into witchcraft, a demon she can’t resist, an angel she can’t trust, 3-foot tall aliens she can’t defeat, and the chance to get even with all the bad people out there… unless of course she destroys the world in the process.
Diana has justice in her hands, and she’s really, really pissed off.
by Jeanne C. Stein
This was a book I won but
I decided to read it on Audible.
I will say it wasn't 
my favorite narration.
I will do a review and giveaway for the book soon.

Line Edits/Releases:
Love From the Ashes by Patricia Andres will be released Monday or Tuesday.

Welcome to Last Chance by Hope Ramsay
I am two thirds through this very fun read. 
Review and Hachette giveaway to post on Thursday 3/17.
Welcome to Last ChanceDear Reader,
Yes, our town is way off the beaten path, but strange, wonderful miracles happen a lot around here.
I've owned the Cut 'n' Curl beauty shop for years, and I've seen folks come for a visit, then stay for a lifetime. Take Jane-that pretty firecracker of a girl who just arrived in town. I would swear she's running from something. She came with only five dollars in her pocket but she's worked real hard to make a fresh start. She's turned my son Clay's life upside down without even realizing it.
And thank goodness for that! Ever since Clay left his country western band, he's played everything too safe. He needs to take a chance on Jane. Besides, the more he tries to keep his distance, the more he'll realize that he and Jane are singing the same tune.
But I should quit ramblin' and go check on Millie's permanent wave. Next time you're in Last Chance, be sure to swing by. We've got hot rollers, free coffee, and the best gossip in town.
See you real soon,
Ruby Rhodes
Rogue Oracle (Delphic Oracle, Book 2)Rogue Oracle (Delphic Oracle, Book 2)
by Alayna Williams
I am just starting this for review post on 3/22.
Product Description
THE MORE YOU KNOW ABOUT THE FUTURE, THE MORE THERE MAY BE TO FEAR. Tara Sheridan is the best criminal profiler around—and the most unconventional. Trained as a forensic psychologist, Tara also specializes in Tarot card reading. But she doesn’t need her divination skills to realize that the new assignment from her friend and sometime lover, Agent Harry Li, is a dangerous proposition in every way.
Former Cold War operatives, all linked to a top-secret operation tracking the disposal of nuclear weapons in Russia, are disappearing. There are no bodies, and no clues to their whereabouts. Harry suspects a conspiracy to sell arms to the highest bidder. The cards—and Tara’s increasingly ominous dreams—suggest something darker. Even as Tara sorts through her feelings for Harry and her fractured relationship with the mysterious order known as Delphi’s Daughters, a killer is growing more ruthless by the day. And a nightmare that began decades ago in Chernobyl will reach a terrifying endgame that not even Tara could have foreseen. . . .
Print and Kindle:
