It’s Monday! What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.
Other Than Reading...
I got to drive home from work in our first snow of the season on Friday. I even had to brush off and scrape my windshields. Of course it was over about an hour later and Saturday and Sunday are supposed to get warm enough to melt the snow. (I'm writing this Saturday morning.)
I seem to have entered the first reading slump that I can recall. I just haven't been in the mood to read this past week. It shows in my accomplishments. I do have some books I want to get to during my Christmas break which starts at 1:30 PM on Tuesday and lasts until January 4. But I'm not sure what I'm going to read. I may pick some old favorites off the shelf to see if I can get my reading mojo back.
Read Last Week
The Iron Warrior by Julie Kagawa was a great conclusion to a series that I have really enjoyed. It was filled with epic battles and personal battles too. I got to see many favorite characters from other books in the series. My review will be posted on January 23.
Assassin's Heart by Sarah Ahiers was an excellent fantasy by a debut author. I enjoyed the world building. The characters were also very interesting people. My review for this first of the February review books on my stack will be posted on January 28.
Burning Midnight by Will McIntosh is also a February release from my review stack. It sounds like an exciting adventure.
Jockey Girl by Shelley Peterson is another from my review stack. This sounds like an interesting contemporary story.
Reign of Shadows by Sophie Jordan begins a new fantasy series. I have enjoyed other books by the author and have high hopes for this one too.
Want to See What I Added to My Stack Last Week?
Love, Lies and Spies by Cindy Anstey was offered by Macmillan at NetGalley. This historical romance/mystery sounded good. It will be released on April 19.
The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows was a Kindle Daily Deal for $1.99 one day this week. I had read the first twelve chapters from Edelweiss and always wanted to know more but didn't want to enough to pay full price.
The Nameless City by Faith Erin Hicks this week. It was a surprise as I don't recall asking for it and seldom read graphic novels. I did read one of her other graphic novels and enjoyed it though and fantasy is a genre I enjoy. This one will be released on April 5.
I had asked for Flawed by Cecelia Ahern from Macmillan at NetGalley a while ago because I liked the description of this dystopian story. I was approved this week the day before the book became a Read Now selection. It will be released on April 5.
