It's Monday! What are you Reading April 25, 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. I finished four books; posted four reviews, two with Giveaways; Friday Pick giveaway; an Easter Blog Hop Giveaway; a Blog Tour announcement; a Sourcebooks announcement; Enquiring Mind Meme, Sunday post and winners post.

I had a rather strange week with our son home. Every night over the past two weeks we watched TV series. First Firefly and its wrap up movie Serenity; then Jericho. Pretty interesting even if we railed at some obvious errors. So that cut into computer time.
I did get to visit a little bit  but of course still want to do more.

These were last week's posts plus Winner posts not listed.

Elizabeth and the Prince of Spain (Elizabeth I Trilogy)Elizabeth and the Prince of Spain (Elizabeth I Trilogy) 
by Margaret Irwin
This has started well, introducing Prince Philip-
an interesting character portrayal.
I plan to post this review and 
ARC Giveaway during the week.
This is a review for Sourcebooks.
From the Publisher:
First published in 1946, Elizabeth and the Prince of Spain continues the “vivid, psychologically brilliant” (Times Literary Supplement) journey begun in Young Bess and Elizabeth, Captive Princess. Philip, Prince of Spain, the unwilling bridegroom of Queen Mary, has been warned about the young Elizabeth. According to all reports, she is a heretic, a rebel, and a potential enemy—but she’s also alluring. Accused of treachery by Mary, Elizabeth finds herself teetering between Mary’s vengeance and Philip’s uneasy ardor, with her life in the balance.


by Cym Lowell
This international thriller 
is moving pretty fast -
good Mystery.
Reading from my TBR.
