Other Than Reading...
Baseball is winding down with my Atlanta Braves out of the post-season this year but The Voice has begun its new season. I was hoping that my reading time would increase but it looks there will be as much viewing as before. I am also eager to watch some of the new programs debuting this fall. I watched the premiere of Blindspot after The Voice last week and enjoyed it.
Our weather this past week was delightfully summer-like. I took lots of long walks after school before settling down in front of my computer. Unfortunately, the forecast for next week, which happens to be Homecoming week at school, is looking more fall-like. I think they are predicting rain for every day. Since I'm a fair weather walker, my step count will likely go down. On the up side, my reading time will increase.
Read Last Week
Sinner's Steel by Sarah Castillo was a romance set around an outlaw motorcycle club. I enjoyed the romance and learning more about life in a motorcycle club. My review will be posted on October 3.
Without a Summer by Mary Robinette Kowal is the third book in her Glamourist Histories. I enjoy the characters, magic, and setting of this series. My review will be posted on November 26.
Play by Kylie Scott.
There are two review books on my stack for next week.
In the Company of Wolves by Paige Tyler (Dec. 1)
Secret Sisters by Jayne Ann Krentz (Dec. 8)
- Dragonsblood by Todd McCaffrey
- Breaking a Legend by Sarah Robinson
- Blood Bound by Rachel Vincent
I was so excited to get a copy of Secret Sisters by Jayne Ann Krentz for review. She has been an auto-buy author for me for years. The book will be released on December 8.
In celebration of Banned Books Week and Amazon's Kindle sale, I decided to add The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold to my TBR mountain.
I also chose a second banned book that has been on my radar for a while. The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood was a book I was sure I had until I checked my LibraryThing account. Now I really do.
The Sign of the Book by John Dunning was also a Kindle deal this week. I have read the first books in this five book series but not this book 4.
