It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

Welcome back, today i was stumped on what to post as i am yet to finish a book this week, which is unlike me so no reviews are ready, so instead i thought i would share what i am reading with you all instead

 Poison Study - Maria V Synder

On the eve of her execution for murder, 
Yelena Zaltana is offered an incredible reprieve - on the condition that she becomes the food taster for the military leader of Ixia, Commander Ambrose.

Avoiding poison is the least of her troubles, however ... General Brazell, father of the man she killed, has vowed bloody revenge; she's beginning to have feelings for her captor, Valek; and someone is plotting the downfall of the current regime.

In a desperate race against time, Yelena must learn to control the growing magical talent withinn her and master the demons of her past. The Commander's life, the future of Ixia and all those she loves depend on it

Thoughts so far;
So far i am not too keen, i am over 200 pages in and nothing much has happened, i loved the concept but as the fantasy element becomes more apparent i feel myself less inclined to read this, i will however finish it, but for the hype surrounding it, i just dont get it.

  Love Me Mama - Elsie Reed

This book is a story of an unfavoured child called Victoria. Vicky suffered because of the favouritism her mother showed among her four children, discriminating against Vicky. The difficulties of life led Vicky to build a wall of defense around her. Vicky’s difficult life led her to master the art of escaping the pains of rejection by becoming a high achiever. She thought she was fine and doing all right until the day when her mother died. At that moment, Vicky realized that she never had a mother who loved her. She never would because life cheated her out of a mother and now death had too. The book takes you through the trials and tribulations that Vicky faced before she emerged successful.

Thoughts so far;
Its different, ive read a real mix of books in my time and this doesnt fit into any, its not the most cheerful book but i am intrigued to see where it goes.
