It's Monday! What are you Reading March 21, 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.

Last week seemed a bit slower reading although I did finish four books anyway. I didn't get any reviews done this weekend with not feeling up to snuff. Last week I posted three reviews all with Giveaways; an author Guest Post; a Help Pick Audible Post, Lucky Leprechaun Giveaway, the Enquiring meme post and my Sunday post.

I visited at least 10 blogs over the week and I visited all the Monday Reading visitors from 2 weeks back. I plan to visit last week's this week. At this rate I won't ever catch up. *Sigh*

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

Welcome to Last Chance 
by Hope Ramsay
A very fun read. 
Review and Hachette giveaway 
linked above. 

by Mary Wine.
Another good Highland Romance from Sourcebooks.
I'll post a review and ARC Giveaway on Thursday. 
Ruined, betrayed, and banished…
As brave as she is impulsive, Deidre Chattan’s tendency to follow her heart and not her head has finally tarnished her reputation beyond repair. But when powerful Highland Laird Quinton Cameron finds her, he could care less about her past—it’s her future he’s about to change forever…
Rogue Oracle (Delphic Oracle, Book 2)
by Alayna Williams 
Lots of intereresting facts in this book.
Review and Author Guest post on 3/22.

I had started this over a year ago and finished it while I waited for My Next Pick Audible.  This is a fun way to listen to History. :-)
 This is not your father's history book! Spanning prehistoric times all the way through the Civil War, How Come They Always had the Battles in the National Parks? presents a humorous look at our country's past, a historically accurate, concise, and easy to follow account of the main events in America's saga up through the Civil War, definitely enough to get you by in case you find yourself surrounded by annoying smart people at a party.

I Am the Chosen King I Am the Chosen King by Helen Hollick
I am about 50% complete. Another engaging historical fiction.  Review with author Q&A Interview to post 3/23.
~ Synopsis ~

The year is 1066.  Earl Harold Godwineson of Wessex is lawfully chosen and crowned by the English Lords as King of England - for there is no-one else with the ability to defend the land against the threat of conquest by Duke William of Normandy.
Power and Passion, Love; Loyalty and lust for a throne - One Kingdom, Two Men, One Crown
Merely MagicMerely Magic by Patricia Rice
I plan to start this one midweek. 
 Product Description
"Patricia Rice is a master storyteller."
-Mary Jo Putney, New York Times bestselling author of Never Less than a Lady
Magic is her birthright...
The daughter of one of the strongest magical lineages, Ninian Malcom Siddons is a powerful witch. Determined to only use her magic for good, she lives a simple, solitary life as a healer in her village, where she meets Drogo.
A man of science doesn't believe in anything he can't see...
Lord Drogo Ives believes only logic and science can explain the wonders of the universe and doesn't believe the local folklore about Malcolm witches and Ives men, until he meets Ninian.
Despite the odds against them and their (many) differences, the bond between Drogo and Ninian grows stronger each moment they are together... until the chaos and danger surrounding them forces each to decide: their love... or their lives...
Outside In (Harlequin Teen)
by Maria V. Snyder 
This was the winning Audible pick and I downloaded it on Saturday. I am already half way through and had to recharge the Zen.
"Me? A leader? Okay, I did prove that there's more to Inside than we knew.
That a whole world exists beyond this cube we live in. And finding that led to a major rebellion—between worker scrubs like me and the snobby uppers who rule our world. Make that ruled. Because of me, we're free. I thought that meant I was off the hook, and could go off on my own again—while still touching base with Riley, of course. He's the one upper I think I can trust.
But then we learned that there's outside and then there is Outside.
And something from Outside wants IN."
Maeve Binchy Value Collection: The Copper Beach, Circle of Friends, The Glass Lake
These are quite engaging.
I am almost done Circle of Friends.
Will post a review of The Copper Beech soon.

I am listening to The Listener's Bible NIV
