“It’s Monday! What are you reading?” is a weekly event hosted by Sheila at Bookjourney to share with others what you’ve read the past week and planning to read next.

On top of that, I fully intend to do a buddy read this week with Kayleigh of K-Books and Anjana of Kindle and Me for the (so I’ve been told) amazing:
So what about you guys? What are you all reading this week?
