Happy Monday Readers!

I am feeling refreshed after a fun and relaxing weekend, ready to tackle the week ahead. I spent my Sunday reading and will have a few reviews ready to go this week.

As always I will be starting a new book and I am hoping to pick up The Underground Railroad by Colsen Whitehead. This is a book I have been very excited to read, it has been mentioned on nearly every book podcast I listened to over the past few months not to mention Twitter, Tumblr and even Instagram.

Opening on a cotton plantation, Cora leads a sad and hellish life. When a new slave appears on the plantation and tells her about the Underground Railroad, a chance to escape she takes him up on the offer and they run. In this book the Underground Railroad takes a physical form and although escape seems like a chance for a new and happier life Cora still has a long way to go before getting her happy ending.

I really can’t wait to get into this book as I have heard so many amazing things about it. Already I feel like I love it so I can’t wait to experience the plot for myself and get to know the characters.

Just over a week to go before the end of the month so I have to make the most of this week and wrap up my current reads.

Let’s keep going readers!
