The Sunday Salon - It's Been Awhile
Wow! It has been a really long time since I've done a Sunday Salon post. Life just gets in the way sometimes but I have definitely missed participating and sharing everything book-related in my life :) Which makes me very glad to be back and see what you are all up to as well.
On the reading front, I have been reading up a storm lately. Well, maybe not compared to others but for myself I have been reading a lot. Just in the past couple of weeks I have finished 4 or 5 books and it all started with Arcadia Falls by Carol Goodman. A book that I haven't even taken the time to review yet. Ugh! Arcadia Falls had a nice dark, slightly creepy atmosphere that left me wanting more. I don't usually read horror novels (and I HATE scary movies) but I've been in the mood for more books like Arcadia Falls. I picked up and finished Picnic At Hanging Rock by Joan Lindsay after that (here is my review) and it still left me wanting more. So I'm opening it up to suggestions with the warning that I don't want too scary...whatever that means to you.
I just finished Changeless by Gail Carriger and loved it! I mean LOVED it! But the ending....oh my. I am absolutely, positively chomping at the bit to get my hands on a copy of Blameless. I'm pretty sure that I cannot wait until the end of August. And I don't care if that is next month, I can't wait! (I'm pretty sure that I cannot use enough exclamation marks when talking about this book as well.) I'm also pretty sure that this book may be the one to break my book buying ban. I'm thinking early birthday present as my birthday is in the beginning of September. But if I do that I might have to add a few others on as well...
I'm currently reading Another One Bites The Dust by Jennifer Rardin. Really enjoyed the first book in the series so I'm hoping that this 2nd book is just as good or better. Not sure what is up after that as I try not to plan too far in advance. I am just too moody of a reader. But I'll admit that there is a good chance that it will be Kitty Goes to War by Carrie Vaughn. Which after I read that will leave my waiting impatiently for the next Kitty book. So maybe I'll wait a little bit more...sweet anticipation and all that.
That's it out of me as I'm off to see what all of the other Saloners are off too. Happy reading and hope you all have a great week!
