Happy Sunday to all of my fellow Saloners! It has been a bit quiet around my blog this week as I've been busy with work and all that fun stuff that goes with it. I'm happy to report that I finished my first two books of 2010 though. Last week I read:
1. The House at Riverton by Kate Morton - This was a great read and a wonderful way to start off 2010. I'm hoping to post my thoughts on this one later this afternoon.
2. Once Bitten, Twice Shy by Jennifer Rardin- May I just say that I'm suprised that I haven't heard more of this author and this series as I loved this 1st book. Cannot wait to pick up the next one...review will be coming at some point this week.
I'm currently reading Spindle's End by Robin McKinley. I'm not very far into it at all (maybe chapter 2) so I've yet to form an opinion. But I have heard good things about this author so I'm expecting to enjoy it. Plus, it will fit in with a bunch of my challenges which is always a good thing. Speaking of which, that makes 3 out of the 3 books that I've read this year are new to me authors. I LOVE discovering new authors so I'm happy with that :)
I only added a couple of books to my TBR list this week as I've been a bit remiss in reading all of your posts. My doctor cut my hours back at work (since I'm due in a week...not because everything isn't going smoothly) so I should have more time to work on my google reader this week. I will get it under 1000+ at some point...LOL! The books I added are:
1. The Accidental Demon Slayer by Angie Fox- sounds like a fun new paranormal series for me to check out
2. Soulless by Gail Carriger- This book is labeled as "steampunk"...a genre that I've been hearing more and more about lately. Plus, the summary of the book just sounded good so on to the TBR list it went.
Well, that is it out of me for today. I'll be by to see you all at some point this afternoon. Gotta keep working on that laundry pile. I should probably accomplish something as I'm feeling a bit lazy today :)
