It’s Monday What Are You Reading? is a weekly reading roundup is hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date.

This is technically a weekly meme but I don’t read fast enough to make that worthwhile so I post it every two or three weeks.

This Dark Road to Mercy was my first book by Wiley Cash and I loved it. I’ve had this one on my shelf for several months and it was time to read it. I’m loving this one too.

This is one of those books I hesitated to read when it was first released because everyone was talking about it. I’m glad I finally read. I’m glad I went wtih the audio format. The television adaptation will be airing in the US in June. I have already purchased the next two books in the series and I’m looking forward to listening to them before June.
