Two great tastes that taste great together!
Since I had a snow day today (see: my back deck), Iâ€™ve been trying to be productive. This here blog has been kinda quiet this week, so Iâ€™m combining my Sunday Salon and Mailbox Monday posts into one giant extravaganza!
Can you believe itâ€™s March already? February was a great reading month for me. I finished and reviewed:
- 2009: #24 – The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears (Dinaw Mengestu)
- 2009: #23 – An Ice Cold Grave (Charlaine Harris)
- 2009: #22 – Dead to the World (Charlaine Harris)
- 2009: #21 – Summer Knight (Jim Butcher)
- 2009: #20 – The Prey (Allison Brennan)
- 2009: #19 – Undead and Unemployed (MaryJanice Davidson)
- 2009: #18 – China Lake (Meg Gardiner)
- 2009: #17 – Kiss of the Night (Sherrilyn Kenyon)
- 2009: #16 – Full Speed (Janet Evanovich)
- 2009: #15 – College Girl (Patricia Weitz)
- 2009: #14 – A Fistful of Charms (Kim Harrison)
- 2009: #13 – Upbound (Peter Hassebroek)
12 books is pretty prolific for me, especially for a short month. Unfortunately, a fair number of these were decidedly â€œblehâ€, but there were some jewels in there. A Fistful of Charms, of course. I absolutely love that series. China Lake was also pretty great. The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears was the book I read for my book group this month, and have I mentioned how great my book group is? This was only my second meeting, but Iâ€™m increasingly impressed with the quality of the discussion. We have a really diverse, intelligent group!
Right now Iâ€™m working my way through 3 books that arenâ€™t particularly quick reads, hence the blog silence. Iâ€™m reading Soul Catcher by Michael White, and while itâ€™s good so far, I havenâ€™t been carving out much time at home to read so itâ€™s taking me some time. The ebook Iâ€™m reading is In The Woods by Tana French. This has been really great. The Irish setting is something new for me, and I really dig the relationship between the two main characters, Rob and Cassie. Finally, Iâ€™m listening to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson. This was a really slow starter, but Iâ€™m finally starting to get into it. Iâ€™m not quite halfway through.
I received three books in my mailbox this week:
All three came via PaperBackSwap. Iâ€™m really looking forward to Pretty Little Mistakes, which is basically a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure book for adults. I probably wonâ€™t read it in one chunk, but will work through it a bit at a time.
