Hey guys – its Friday again (I’m doing my finally Friday dance at work right now – in between wanting to take a nap under my desk).
So the question of the day, like every Friday, what are you reading this weekend? Is it something that you are continuing to read, or are you planning on starting something new?
For me, this week was definately a bit of a reading funk – with the hot weather and a broken AC, reading was the last thing I was able to concentrate on, so I didn’t make as much progress on books that I was in the middle of, as I would have liked. To that end, I am still working on:
Barefoot in the Sand – Roxanne St. Claire – this is the first in the authors new contemporary series – I did get a bit further from last week – I am at about 40% right now
Quarantine – John Smolens – this is an eARC of a book due to be released in December about the Fever that struck the East Coast of the US in the late 1700’s – so far I disgree with the 1 star review that I saw for the book, but I’m not sure what my final verdict will be
Love is Murder – Anthology – About half-way through this anthology right now that was edited/compiled by Sandra Brown – Didn’t make any progress on this one this week, so hope to maybe finish it up
Code Name Verity – Elizabeth Wein – a YA set during WW2 featuring a young girl spying – I did manage to start this but haven’t gotten much further than that – its interesting what I have read, but its also hard to find a good stopping point, but it isn’t written in chapters, which I think is part of the reason I am dragging my feet on reading it
In addition to those that I already have in progress, I am planning on starting:
Never Fall Down – this is supposedly a fictionalized biography of a child soldier set in Cambodia and the killing fields – it has gotten good reviews so far, and I can use it for the next book in my around the world reading challenge
American Visa – a mystery set in Bolivia – this is also part of my around the world challenge 😉
And no weekend would be complete without an update on what audiobook I am listening to – Anne of Green Gables – after the blubbering mess that listening to Fifteen Days (see last weekends post) left me, I needed something heart-warming and you can’t get much more so than the story of Ann with an E 🙂 Listening now, I have to remember if I ever did read this book growing up – I remember watching the movie and the short-lived TV series, but drawing a blank on the book…
