It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (2/14)

Another Monday is here. Time does fly.

What I have read last week:
  • Vampire Academy #1; I love this book. I should have read it when it was published in Indonesia. I like the idea of Moroi, Dhampir and Strigoi.
  • Immortyl Kisses; Another paranormal book. I read and reviewed it for Book Loving Bithches e-book Tour
  • Shanaou Yoshitsune Genpai War 7. It is a historical fiction manga. If you have heard about Benkei; a Japanese warrior monk, you can find him in this manga.
I also post a review of Vampyre Kisses

Human Blend and Frosbite; Vampire Academy #2 are still on my currently reading pile. I got many distraction this week. So I have not finished them yet.

What I plan to read this week

Synopsis From Author's Website
When historian Diana Bishop opens a bewitched alchemical manuscript in Oxford’s Bodleian Library it represents an unwelcome intrusion of magic into her carefully ordinary life. Though descended from a long line of witches, she is determined to remain untouched by her family’s legacy. She banishes the manuscript to the stacks, but Diana finds it impossible to hold the world of magic at bay any longer.

For witches are not the only otherworldly creatures living alongside humans. There are also creative, destructive daemons and long-lived vampires who become interested in the witch’s discovery. They believe that the manuscript contains important clues about the past and the future, and want to know how Diana Bishop has been able to get her hands on the elusive volume.
Chief among the creatures who gather around Diana is vampire Matthew Clairmont, a geneticist with a passion for Darwin. Together, Diana and Matthew embark on a journey to understand the manuscript’s secrets. But the relationship that develops between the ages-old vampire and the spellbound witch threatens to unravel the fragile peace that has long existed between creatures and humans—and will certainly transform Diana’s world as well.

This is the third time I posted this book on my blog. I am just still excited to received it. I got the e-book format. I have to finish it before February 21st. The local publisher need the review.

AfterA Discovery of Withes, I think I need to read fiction without fantasy inside for this week. A book without any vampire, werewolf or ghost inside will be my next reading.

So what are you reading? Please leave the link. So I can visit your blog post back

Checked the review and I'm sorry that Immortyl Kisses wasn't a good read for you.
I saw A Discovery of Witches this week and it sounds good! Hope you really enjoy it.

A Discovery of Witches seems quite popular at the moment as I've come across it a few times this week. Having recently read The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane, I think I might have to pick up this one too!
