High Summer Read-a-thon and other Reading Ramblings
I don't have any set goals for this read-a-thon but I'm hoping to finish the three books that I'm currently reading. Yep, somehow I find myself in the midst of three books. I hate when I do that because then I end up reading less than usual somehow (don't ask me why but it is true). Since my reader died I picked up The Last Victim from the library to finish. Unfortunately it is just not the book for me. If I wasn't 3/4th's of the way through it I would probably already have set it aside. (And if you are wondering it didn't get really weird/uncomfortable until this point) I was going to just call it quits but I can't help but wondering if the end will make up for everything. I highly doubt it but I have to find out. I'm also hoping to finish Vanish With the Rose by Barbara Michaels and Crimson Wind by Diana Pharaoh Francis.
So these are my goals/reading plans for the High Summer Read-a-thon. I'm also looking forward to participating in a Twitter chat or two and hopefully meeting some new bloggy friends :) In other reading news last week was a bit more quiet for me reading wise. I only finished one book (in large part to the reading blahs I got from Robard's book). I finished reading:
Chasing Perfect by Susan Mallery was a fun contemporary romance that was cute. It wasn't an outstanding read but I did like it enough to gobble it down in a couple of days. I'm eager to see how the other books in this series compare because sometimes the first book can be one of the weaker ones. I'll definitely be reading more about Fool's Gold!
I stood strong on my book buying ban this week which is a good thing for my shelves. I did bring home a few from the library but I'll share about those in a library loot post. I'm hoping to start back on a running/walking schedule again this week. I've let myself get a bit lazy but it is beyond time to get my butt back in gear! And I've also got the urge to pop out some book reviews. Considering how behind I am I'm going to go with it. I might end up posting a bunch this week so be warned :) That's definitely enough rambling out of me for one Sunday.
Happy Reading and Happy Sunday!
