It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by The Book Date.
Hey guys! I know I haven’t been around much lately. I’ve been in a reading slump since around August and I am now just slowly coming out of it. I don’t know about you, but when I’m in a reading slump, that kind of puts me in a blogging slump. I feel like I either have nothing to talk about, or when I do Wishlist Wednesday, Waiting on Wednesday or especially TBR Thursday, I feel like crap for not reading. I just see all these books I want, or already own and think about how much I want to read them but I’m not reading at all. Not the best feeling.
Anyways, like I said, I am slowly coming out of this slump and I have read a bit so I’m slowly getting back into blogging. As of right now I’m not sure how much I will be posting, but I will try my best.

Masquerade (Andalucian Nights #2) by Hannah Fielding
From the award-winning author of The Echoes of Love. Love, mystery and desire under the scorching Spanish sun.
A young writer becomes entangled in an illicit gypsy love affair, pulling her into a world of secrets, deception and dark desire.
Summer, 1976. Luz de Rueda returns to her beloved Spain and takes a job as the biographer of a famous artist. On her first day back in Cádiz, she encounters a bewitching, passionate young gypsy, Leandro, who immediately captures her heart, even though relationships with his kind are taboo. Haunted by this forbidden love, she meets her new employer, the sophisticated Andrés de Calderón. Reserved yet darkly compelling, he is totally different to Leandro but almost the gypsy’s double. Both men stir unfamiliar and exciting feelings in Luz, although mystery and danger surround them in ways she has still to discover.
Luz must decide what she truly desires as glistening Cádiz, with its enigmatic moon and whispering turquoise shores, seeps back into her blood. Why is she so drawn to the wild and magical sea gypsies? What is behind the old fortune-teller’s sinister warnings about ‘Gemini’? Through this maze of secrets and lies, will Luz finally find her happiness… or her ruin?
Masquerade is a story of forbidden love, truth and trust. Are appearances always deceptive?
