It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? #1


It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a meme hosted at The Book Date where bloggers look at what they’re currently reading and what’s up next in their TBR!

I decided to find a Monday meme I can get into and this one looks the most interesting and seems a great way to discover new books.

So, anyway, what am I reading?

What I Read Last Week

Technically I read Radio Silence the week before but hey, I’m including it anyway.

Whilst Radio Silence was a bit hit and miss for me, Nevernight was amazing. Check out my reviews for them here:

What I’m Currently Reading


At the moment I’m about halfway through Six of Crows and I’m reeeeally enjoying it. It definitely lives up to its hype!

Also, there are some pretty big similarities between Kaz Brekker and Tommy Shelby from Peaky Blinders. Whenever Kaz talks I’m having trouble not reading it in a Brummy accent. I mean, Kaz is a ruthless gangster but very good with words like Tommy, wears a sharp suit like Tommy, and even has dark hair shaved at the sides just like Tommy, and all the Peaky Blinders to boot. If Leigh Bardugo wasn’t watching Peaky Blinders when writing Six of Crows then these are some really uncanny similarities. However, it’s not a problem, because I love Peaky Blinders and these similarities make me enjoy Six of Crows even more.

Up Next

I’m taking part in the Halloween Read-A-Thon so my next books are horror classic I Am Legend and YA psychological horror The Dead House. For more details on the Read-A-Thon check out my post here.

After that, I’m thinking of reading A Darker Shade of Magic. I’ve seen a lot of love for this series and V.E. Schwab so I think it’s finally time I start it.


Have you read any of these books? What are you reading this week? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. The only book I’ve read is A Darker Shade of Magic and I *adore* it. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did! I will be re-reading it in December, as part of a binge-reading of the entire series. The final book will be released in February 2017.


  2. I have read A Darker Shade of Magic last month and it was great!
    Currently reading More Than This by Patrick Ness , which is turning out to be something I definitely did not expect it to be. Pleasant surprise, I have to say.


  3. Oh Caitlin! you will find yourself running to Crooked Kingdom after the EPICNESS that is Six of Crows. I myself have been holding back since I’m now participating in a buddy read in November, but the need is REAL LOL! I also enjoyed A Darker Shade Of Magic but wish we had a bit more character development. I hear A Gathering Of Shadows takes care of that & V.E. Shwab hasn’t let me down yet so I will be cont. with that series.

    Happy Reading! 🙂

    • Hahah I’m already on the verge of adding Crooked Kingdom to my basket on Amazon! I don’t know how you’re holding back haha that’s some restraint! Ah well at least the character development should improve in the sequel to ADSOM, I’ll have to see what I think of the characters. Thank you, you too! 🙂

      • *insert blogger peer pressure here* DO IT! LOL! you won’t regret it…this from someone who hasn’t read it yet but Six Of Crows was just so flawless, I know CK will tear me down but I will love it all the while 😉

      • Hahah don’t tempt me! Although I think I’ll be giving into the pressure soon! 🙈 I’ve seen people online raving about CK so I’m sure we’ll both like it. I’m excited to see what happens next and I haven’t even got to the actual heist in SoC yet haha!

  4. Sorry to hear Radio Silence was a little disappointing. I highlighted the cover (different cover version) recently on my Bookcover Spotlight so I was wondering how the actual book was. I’ll have to go read your review. And everyone seems to be loving Six of Crows!

    Have fun w/ the readathon!


    • Yeah I think Radio Silence just wasn’t my cup of tea. I’m not a huge contemporary fan anyway but it certainly wasn’t a bad book, just not for me. I think contemporary fans would definitely like it though! Yeah Six of Crows is huge at the moment and I’m really starting to see why, the book is great! And thank you! 🙂


  5. I liked Six of Crows and have the sequel on TBR mountain but have review books to read before I will be able to read it. Come see my week here. Happy reading!


  6. I love Six of Crows!! I’m glad you’re enjoying it so far, Kaz is also my favorite criminal mastermind ❤ I'm waiting for Nevernight paperbacks edition in my country because I can't afford the hardbacks at the moment </3 anywayyy, you should definitely read ADSOM soon because it was incredible and easily one of my favorite fantasy books of ever! 😀
