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 had a very quiet Christmas this year as I wasn't traveling. We did manage to get a white Christmas thanks to the inch or so of snow that fell on Wednesday. We also had light snow on Saturday.
I spent the time working on my blog and reading. I have 57 posts scheduled and ready to go. I also have the reviews, except for my thoughts, for the next six books on my reading pile ready to go.
I have some projects for next week. I am continuing to de-clutter and get organized for 2016. I still have quite a few closets and cupboards to look through for things I no longer want or need.
Read Last Week
End Game by Tess Diamond was the concluding book in a trilogy. It was engaging and suspenseful. My reviews have been posted to Amazon, LibraryThing and GoodReads but, like the first two books, I won't be writing on review on my blog.
After that book, I decided to treat myself (and try to get out of my reading slump) by revisiting some books that I really enjoyed.
Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen by Lois McMaster Bujold is the latest in her Vorkosigan Saga and stars Cordelia who is making some major changes in her life after being widowed. I read this one first in October. It will be released on February 2 and my review will be posted on January 28.
Necessity's Child by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller takes place on Surebleak and stars Syl Vor yos'Phelium who is a child who has been traumatized by the events the led to the Clan's relocation on Surebleak and who is trying to find in footing on a new planet and in times of lesser danger. Here is a link to my review.
Dragon in Exile by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller also takes place on Surebleak and is told from multiple viewpoints. I enjoyed this one because I got to catch up with favorite characters, learn more about the Bedel, and gain a new appreciation for Kareen. Here is a link to my review.
She's No Angel by Leslie Kelly and read the first six chapters getting to page 145 before I abandoned this book which had been on my TBR mountain since 2008. While I was enjoying the main characters, I really hated the heroine's aunts who got way too much page-time for my liking. this one is now in the Donate Pile.
After my recent binge of old favorites, I decided I needed to catch up on YA books and haven't started a new adult book.
Fighting Dirty by Lori Foster is the newest in her series about Ultimate fighters. It will be released on February 23.
The Infamous Heir by Elizabeth Michels begins a new Regency series and will be released on March 1.
Dragon's Fire by Anne McCaffrey and Todd McCaffrey. After this I will have removed one I bought in 2008 from my stack and will be left with only one more Pern book on TBR mountain.
- Dragon's Kin by Anne McCaffrey
- Kill Without Mercy by Alexandra Ivy
- Closer to the Heart by Mercedes Lackey
Crash and Burn by Allison Brennan and Laura Griffin for my Kindle this week. It was either a Kindle Daily Deal or featured on my daily BookBub email.
