I get a big fat fail for last week’s reading. What was I doing last week? Seriously, why did I not read? It’s all a bit of a blur, but I am going to blame 1. work (always blame work, it cuts into a lot of reading time!) 2. The Game of Thrones, season 1, and 3. yard work (always blame yard work, it is a necessary evil of homeownership and it really cuts into reading time).
The one and only book I finished last week: The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa. I really liked this third book in the series. I can’t wait to find out what happens with our heroine Meghan and her beloved. I should add that faery stories are not typically my cup of tea, but I have thoroughly enjoyed this unique, modern take on the traditional fae story. I highly recommend it.
I did make progress with my audiobooks. I am about half way through Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick. I am not sure how far along I am in Defending Jacob by William Landay. I am really enjoying both books.
Ok, now it is time for some serious book commitments for the week! I have two books that are due back at the library this week that I want to finish.
Books I will finish this week: The Serpent’s Shadow by Rick Riordan and I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga. Now that I am no longer ashamed to be seen in my front yard, I am committed to lots of evening porch reading this week.
The e-book I will finish this week: Flirting in Italian by Lauren Henderson.
Finally, as if this is not ambitious enough, I need to start a romance for my genre book discussion at work. I am thinking about reading The Little Lady Agency by Hester Browne.
Please wish me luck this week! I have high hopes for reading success and I need to accomplish them. I already feel like a slacker for not having read Insurgent or City of Lost Souls yet. Sigh.
