It's Monday! What Are You Reading? #7

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is being hosted by Sheila at One Persons Journey through a World of Books.

This is a great weekly event where everyone can keep track of the books finished last week & the books planning to read this week!

Last week I've finished The Winter Queen by Boris Akunin, (historical detective novel that's 1st book in the Erast Fandorin Mysteries, which I really loved & now is one of my favorites); I've finished The Arctic Incident by Eoin Colfer - the 2nd Artemis Fowl book & I loved it more than the 1st one & I've read Pride, Prejudice & Jasmin Field by Melissa Nathan. I loved & enjoyed this one too & it's really great modern take on Pride & Prejudice.

I'm really big mood reader, so often happens that I start a book, read it for a day or two & although I 'm enjoying it, I won't be anymore in a mood for that genre & I leave it. Last week I've started My Favorite Witch by Lisa Plumley & I loved it, but my mood changed so I have maybe 50 pages left. I also read half of Impulse & Initiative: A Pride & Prejudice Variation by Abigail Reynolds, which continues after the 1st proposal & Mr. Darcy decides to go after Elizabeth & make her fall in love with him. I'm really enjoying this one, too. I've also started The Templar Legacy by Steve Berry, which from the beginning seems like a great thriller, but I'm not in a mood for thrillers anymore.

So, this week I'll read Angeli na progonstvoto (Angels in Exile) by Paskal Gilevski (one of my favorites) or Vrakanje vo skaznite (Returning to the tales) by Bozin Pavlovski, because I should read a book that's not set in the USA or UK for a challenge that ends this week. These are both from macedonian authors & I don't know if the books are translated to english, so the english titles are translated by me. Also, I'll finish My Favorite Witch this week for the same challenge. Except for these, my other reading choices will depend on my mood & I think that this week I'm in a mood for YA & fantasy.

So, what are you reading?
