It's Monday! What are you reading?

Hey y'all! I hope everyone is having a good day! In an attempt to become a little bit more organized and see what my reading habits look like, I'm going to be doing the "It's Monday! What Are You Reading?" recap posts hosted by Book Journey every Monday! 

I read these three before last week but I thought I'd feature them just the same! I have yet to review any of these novels but I'm excited to put my thoughts down.
This past week--and maybe this entire summer-has been a reread season! My younger brother isn't the biggest reader but he LOVE The Seven Realms Series by Cinda Chima Williams. He'd reread this series numerous times and when he began another read this past week, I decided to join in! I've read the first three books on my blog (click the images to read my reviews!)

I have slowly been making progress with Froi of the Exiles! I'm absolutely in love with this series and I'm so mad at myself for reading it so late in the Game. I'm finishing my reread of the Seven Realms tonight (I'm writing this post up on Sunday night) and even know I know the ending, I don't think I'm ready for it! I'm going to have my review up some time next week to finish off this series! 
These two are for my new Among the Shelves feature! 

Finishing off this series hopefully! And I'm too much of a mood-reader to make plans farther out than this!

Among the Shelves: Introduction

To say that I am super excited for this new feature would be an understatement! In an attempt to control my TBR, find new books to read and utilize my personal and public library more, and just become even more well rounded reader, I've come up with a way for me to do so! 

Ever week, I've decided that I'm going to pick a book that I haven't read from my personal library, read it and review it for you guys! I think this is going to be a lot of fun and I'm really, really excited to see what I come up with. However, there are going to be some...criteria from which I get my books:

1) All books chosen have to be RANDOMLY chosen. None of these books can be ones I've read before. Basically I'm going to scour the shelves to find a book that looks interesting, read the synopsis and if my mood strikes it, I'll pick it up! 

2) I know pretty much all of the books I own (at least I think I do...this could very well not be the case because I have the world's worst memory) so I'm going to make this as random as possible! 

3) Choose two books per week in case 

1) I finish the book and 

2) I'm not liking that books 

4) Go with my gut on any books I choose. I want this to be as fun as possible.  

I'm really, really excited about this new feature and I can't wait to see what books I find. I think that with so many new books coming out everyday, we lose track of some of the older books that have been around for a lot longer. 

How this is going to work: 

Every Sunday I'm going to pick two books from either my personal library or public library. I'm very fortunate that my public library have e-books to check out so I don't actually have to go to the library which helps tremendously. 

I'm going to start doing "Hey, it's Monday! What are you reading?" posts again and both books will be featured on that post. 

Friday and/or Saturday will be when my reviews will be posted for the books! Other reviews, discussions, features and memes will be posted Monday-Thursday! 

So for this week, I've got these two books: 

I have no idea if I'm going to like either but I've had them on my shelves FOR EVER! If I end up reading both, I'll have the reviews next week! 

So, what do you all think? Does this sound like a good feature? I'm really excited to show case some older books on this blog and I hope you're excited to be a part of this ride!
