The Book Date.
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'm sitting writing this in the living room of my new house. My drive
up on Thursday was blessedly uneventful. It was warm (for Minnesota)
and sunny the whole way. I got home to an empty house since my brother
was working but this time he hadn't locked me out. I got all unpacked
and relaxed until he got home from work at 11 PM and then we talked
until 1 AM. It was a long day for someone who got up at 6 AM.
brought a cold home with me. My cough has been joined by a runny nose. I
brought all kinds of cold remedies with me and hope I'll be finished
with it before I need to drive back. Sneezing, coughing and blowing my
nose while driving requires more coordination than I possess.
writing this on Friday afternoon and watching the wind blow and large
snow flakes get blown around by it. We're supposed to get less than an
inch of snow in this event. The big one is apparently waiting for
Christmas Day into Monday afternoon. Good thing I don't have to be
anywhere else for those two days.
I brought home two
print books and Kindle full of books. I can easily fill my time reading
and trying to find things my brother has put away. I need to learn my
way around a new arrangement in the kitchen. I opened every drawer
before I found a spatula to flip my egg at breakfast.
I was hoping to bring some empty boxes back with me so that I can begin my packing. However, since Oct. 22, he has only emptied about ten - the kitchen stuff. All his many boxed of LPs and CDs are still waiting for him to find time to empty them.
We're going to do one more walk-through of our other house in Duluth to make sure we've taken everything we want while I'm home this time. Next stop, hire someone to do an estate sale to get rid of the rest of the things in that house!
Read Last Week
Southern Gothic by Dale Wiley was a spooky story within a story. Fans of contemporary Gothic fiction will enjoy it. My review will be posted on January 19.
Archangel's Heart by Nalini Singh was a recent arrival on my Kindle. I always enjoy her writing and chose this one after abandoning a review book that was just to florid and wordy for my tastes.
Dawn Study by Maria V. Snyder which is the third and final book in the Study series but includes characters from her other series too. This is the ninth book I've read that's set in this fantasy world.
I'll be starting with these two from my review stack but hope to read a couple more too.
Want to See What I Added to My Stack Last Week?
One Fell Sweep by Ilona Andrews is the newest book in their Innkeeper series. I had to have a copy since I enjoyed the others.
Kale to the Queen by Nell Hampton is a cozy mystery with ties to British royalty something of keen interest to this American.
To see what Young Adult books I have been reading and plan to read, check out Ms. Martin Teaches Media - my other blog.
