It's Monday! What are you reading?


 
It's Monday! What are you reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. For this meme, bloggers post what they finished last week, what they're currently reading, and what they plan to start this week.
My comments are not meant to be recaps of the story lines as I include a link to Goodreads for their synopsis of the book. I am merely stating how I felt about the book without giving any spoilers.


I missed the last couple of weeks as we were travelling a lot and not much reading was done! And then we got to Myrtle Beach and had friends visiting. So definitely not much to update. The complex we were staying in only allowed two wi-fi devices (like, seriously, in this day and age??). This meant I couldn't download to my iPad (third device) from the library so I ended up reading some books my husband had bought.


35 COMPLETED READS TO DATE!
1 ABANDONED
1 not finished as it expired so I will have to borrow it again. The Nightmare

FINISHED:

Die Trying (Jack Reacher, #2)

When a woman is kidnapped off a Chicago street in broad daylight, Jack Reacher's in the wrong place at the wrong time. He's kidnapped with her. Handcuffed together and racing across America toward an unknown destination, they're at the mercy of a group of men demanding an impossible ransom - the woman is worth more than he can imagine.

It was a pleasant read.

The Hard Way (Jack Reacher, #10)
Jack Reacher was alone, the way he liked it, soaking up the hot, electric New York City night, watching a man cross the street to a parked Mercedes and drive it away. The car contained one million dollars in ransom money. And Edward Lane, the man who paid it, will pay even more to get his family back. Lane runs a highly illegal soldiers-for-hire operation. He will use any amount of money and any tool to find his beautiful wife and child. And then he'll turn Jack Reacher loose with a vengeance--because Reacher is the best man hunter in the world. 
On the trail of a vicious kidnapper, Reacher is learning the chilling secrets of his employer's past...and of a horrific drama in the heart of a nasty little war. He's beginning to realize that Edward Lane is hiding something. Something dirty. Something big. But Reacher also knows this: he's already in way too deep to stop now.

Again, a pleasant read.

STARTED:

With humor and opinions aplenty, a woman embarks on an unconventional quest to see if she is meant to be a nun.

  1. I'm trying to finish Tom Clancy's last novel, but like the last few (well, ever since Bear And The Dragon), the quality of his work took a jump off a cliff.

  2. That's tough not to have wi-fi when you expect it. Kind of cool that you got to share some of your husband's reading. I wouldn't ordinarily pick up Lee Child, but I suspect I'd enjoy the adventure.
