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...
My first week of vacation has been nicely relaxing. I have read, played computer games, and caught up on my sleep. I have also been working on assignments for next year as I tweak this year's assignments based on how they went. I have been writing more detailed directions. I have a couple of other assignments that I want to work on over the summer and thought I'd spread the load by getting one or two done each week.
Next week, I'll be heading to my summer home. I've been packing the books I want to take along with me. Bags and bags of books! Clothing and other stuff can wait until later. The books are the important things to pack.
Read Last Week
My book choices this week were mostly from my TBR mountain.
Silver on the Road by Laura Anne Gilman was an entertaining fantasy set in the American West. I enjoyed the world building and the characters in this one and have already put the next in the series on my Amazon Wishlist. My review will be posted on July 2.
Wildefire by Karsten Knight had been on my TBR mountain since July 31, 2013 (Kindle) and July 26, 2011(hardcover). I enjoyed this contemporary paranormal. I had the second one on my Kindle and added the final one this week. My review will be posted on July 6.
Walk the Edge by Katie McGarry was an excellent contemporary romance. I liked the characters and thought the story was emotionally intense. My review will be posted on July 7.
What the Dead Want by Norah Olson was my only review book of the week. I thought it was well-written and spooky. My review will be posted on July 14 for this July 26 release. (I've already added it to my next MSHS book order, too.)
Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas which is the fourth book in the Throne of Glass series. I bought this one Aug. 20, 2015.
- Flying by Carrie Jones (surprise arrival for review from Tor Teen)
- A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
- Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
- Steeplejack by A. J. Hartley
- Autofocus by Lauren Gibaldi
- The Haunting of Falcon House by Eugene Yelchin
SYNC Audiobooks were Zac and Mia by A. J. Betts and I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson. You can get yours by downloading them before next Thursday.
After spending an hour reading and holding Queen of Shadows, I decided that I needed to have my "chunksters" as Kindle books instead of print books. The print ones will be donated to my High School Media Center next fall.
Forever by Maggie Stiefvater and Carry On by Rainbow Rowell.
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas and Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas.
Flying by Carrie Jones from Tor Teen this week. It was a surprise but sounded good enough to be added to my calendar.
Sinner by Maggie Stiefvater and Afterglow by Karsten Knight.
