It's Monday! What are you Reading May 30, 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 finished six books (almost seven) this week, which surprised even me since both Historicals were on the long side.  Reading the audio/audible books certainly speeds things along. I posted three reviews, one with ARC Giveaway and one with Audio and older print book Giveaway.  I also posted a Splash into Summer Hop Giveaway, the Friday Pick Giveaway; Enquiring Mind Meme with Giveaway, Sunday post and a winners' post.

I visited a few blogs last week  - still not as many as I would like.
These were last week's posts plus a Winners' posts not listed.

Finished Reading:

What would happen if you discovered that your family was one of the most powerful in human history? What if you were told that the source of the family's power was hidden around the world, in the form of 39 Clues?

A Sourcebooks review.
Product Description
Be among the first to discover rising star Grace Burrowes, whose searing debut, The Heir, captured awards, rave reviews, and a crusade of fans who can't stop talking about it.

Even in the quiet countryside he can find no peace...

His idyllic estate is falling down from neglect and nightmares of war give him no rest. Then Devlin St. Just meets his new neighbor...

Until his beautiful neighbor ignites his imagination...

With her confident manner hiding a devastating secret, his lovely neighbor commands all of his attention, and protecting Emmaline becomes Deviln's most urgent mission.
by Johanna Lindsey
I am almost finished this.
I will post a review and print book giveaway this week.
Johanna Lindsey presents a sparkling, passionate Regency-era novel in which a beautiful but ruthless gossip meets her match in a dashing rake who sets out to change her wicked ways. Featuring two enthralling characters from the unforgettable bestseller The Heir, The Devil Who Tamed Her is a spirited new tale about the transforming power of true love.

Kindle: Undecided. I will probably get one of the June review books to read on Kindle.

Audible: Soulless: An Alexia Tarabotti Novel by Gail Carringer
OR Rapture in Death (In Death, Book 4) by J.D. Robb - I have the book but don't see me getting to read it anytime soon.
