It’s Monday – What are you reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment, and er… add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.
I don’t know about you, but i really feel like this year is just flying by and that it was just Monday a couple of days ago…unfortunately, I can tell you (based on how my body currently feels) that that isn’t the case. Last week wasn’t a solid reading week for a number of reasons, the most important being that it was my last big training week prior to my Ironman triathlon in 2 weeks. So this week consisted of a 20 mile run (yeah, you read that right)…as well as a 4000yd swim and a race day sim (3k swim, 6hr bike and 5 mile run)…so i’m pretty much hobbling around right now and I barely made it to bed before i passed out most nights.
What I finished reading/listening to:
Last week i finished listening to 1 audiobook and finished up 3 books (1 print from the library, 1 ebook from the library and 1 borrowed via Kindle Unlimited). While I enjoyed listening to Grunt and it was interesting to see how many of the technologies I take for granted in my daily work (since I am in the military) were developed, it wasn’t as enjoyable as some of her previous ones. Bonk is still my favorite by her of all the ones i’ve listened to. Of the 3 books that I finished reading, I was pretty much unenthused by them – they all had potential but in the end was just left feeling blah – which is always disappointing…
What Am I Listening To Now?
Keeping with the theme of multiple audiobooks – i’m still listening to two of the books that I mentioned last week – mostly because Grunt (the one audiobook I managed to finish last week) was due back on Thursday and I needed to finish it up. And in keeping with the theme of books needing to be returned – after waiting close to 2 months, the audiobook of The Dirt on Ninth Grave came in and with a waitlist for it, I knew I had to get it listened to sooner rather than later – so I’m about halfway through right now and will probably finish up early in the week and then will concentrate on finishing up my other 2 books.
What Am I Reading This Week?
A couple of my books this week are carried over from last week and then I have a batch of books just borrowed via KU that I’m going to try and read. I’m most looking forward to reading Harlot by Victoria Dahl because i’m in the mood for a (hopefully) good historical romance and with a fallen woman as the heroine – I hope its as good as it sounds. I’m also going to check out Terri Osborn – who is an author that several Goodreads friends of mine have recommended over the last couple of years but I just haven’t had a chance to get to her yet. I also found out that one of the books I finished up this past week, has a second book in the series just released last week (Perfectly Ms Matched) – so I’m going to check that one out too.
