It’s Monday! What are you reading?



It’s Monday! What are you reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey. It’s a great opportunity for bloggers to post what books they plan to read for the week.

Here’s my list. I’m not sure if I can finish it within this week but I’ll try (*fingers crossed*).


The Opportunist by Tarryn Fisher

the opportunistHere’s the blurb from Goodreads:

Olivia Kaspen has just discovered that her ex-boyfriend, Caleb Drake, has lost his memory. With an already lousy reputation for taking advantage of situations, Olivia must decide how far she is willing to go to get Caleb back. Wrestling to keep her true identity and their sordid past under wraps, Olivia’s greatest obstacle is Caleb’s wicked, new girlfriend; Leah Smith. It is a race to the finish as these two vipers engage in a vicious tug of war to possess a man who no longer remembers them. But, soon enough Olivia must face the consequences of her lies, and in the process discover that sometimes love falls short of redemption.

I just started this book and I am finding myself quite enjoying it. The thing that drew me first to this book was the interesting premise. Ex-boyfriend has amnesia so girl decides to take advantage. It sounds a little wrong but there’s a lot of potential for plot development and I am curious as to where the author plans to take this story.


Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

attachmentsHere’s the blurb from Goodreads:

“Hi, I’m the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you . . . ”

Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It’s company policy.) But they can’t quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives.

Meanwhile, Lincoln O’Neill can’t believe this is his job now- reading other people’s e-mail. When he applied to be “internet security officer,” he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers- not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke.

When Lincoln comes across Beth’s and Jennifer’s messages, he knows he should turn them in. But he can’t help being entertained-and captivated-by their stories.

By the time Lincoln realizes he’s falling for Beth, it’s way too late to introduce himself.

What would he say . . . ?

I’ve read Eleanor & Park and Fangirl but sadly I haven’t read Rainbow Rowell’s debut novel yet. I think it’s high-time that I do (I hope).


It Happened One Midnight by Julie Anne Long

it happened one midnightHere’s the blurb from Goodreads:

More than one beautiful woman’s hopes have been dashed on the rocky shoals of Jonathan Redmond’s heart. With his riveting good looks and Redmond wealth and power, the world is his oyster—until an ultimatum from his father and a chilling gypsy prophesy send him hurtling headlong toward a fate he’ll do anything to avoid: matrimony.

Intoxicating, elusive Thomasina de Ballesteros has the bloods of London at her feet. But none of them knows the real Tommy—the one with a shocking pedigree, a few too many secrets, and a healthy scorn for rakes like Jonathan.

She is everything Jonathan never wanted. But on one fateful midnight, he’s drawn into Tommy’s world of risk, danger…and a desire he’d never dreamed possible. And suddenly he’s re-thinking everything…including the possibility that succumbing to prophesy might just mean surrendering to love.

I’ve only read three of Julie Anne Long’s books, all from her Pennyroyal Green Series, and so far I’ve enjoyed them. What I Did For a Duke remains one of my favorite historical romances. So I wanted to continue on with the series while waiting for the much-awaited pinnacle of the series which I surmise would be Lyon’s and Olivia’s story. So in the meantime, I’ll read and enjoy Jonathan’s and Tommy’s story.


What are you guys reading this week? I would love to hear your selections.
