The Sunday Salon: Beginning Books
I don't have a lot more to share other than the books that I've been reading. This weekend I was in a finicky mood and kept starting books. Seriously, I started three before I finally settled on one. As I plan on reading them all, I have lots of reading ahead of me. But that isn't different from any other day :) I have a bunch of books that I have finished since I last posted a reading update. Here are the books that I have finished since then:
The Girl Who Disappeared Twice by Andrea Kane was just as good as the other book that I read in this series. I liked seeing how Forensic Instincts began but especially enjoyed seeing the beginnings of some of the relationships between the main characters. This is an author that I will be reading more of!
The Mummy Case by Elizabeth Peters was a delightful read! This series just keeps getting better and I am only on the third book! This one had me laughing out loud at times and turning the pages as fast as I could at others. I adore this series and cannot wait to get my hands on the fourth book :) I cannot sing the praises of these books enough!
Holiday in Death by J.D. Robb was a reread for me but still oh so good! I love the earlier books in Robb's series where we are still getting to know some of the main characters. I flew through the pages of this one in a matter of days, and was instantly ready to start on the next one. This series are comfort reads for me that I turn to whenever I am feeling a reading slump coming on. I probably won't end up reviewing this book as these are rereads and there is only so much you can say about a series without giving something away.
Nine Coaches Waiting by Mary Stewart was oh so good! So, soooo, good! It instantly put me into a gothic romance mood and I've been scouring the internet for more authors just like this. The first book by Stewart I liked (a lot!) but this book I just loved! I cannot wait to share my thoughts on this one!
I'm currently reading one too many books including the following:
I started The Wicked Girls because I was in the mood for a good thriller and Stephen King recommended this author. Seriously? How could I not want to read it after that? But then I realized that I was still craving something gothic and older so I downloaded The Stone Bull for free onto my ipad thanks to Open Library. Both were moving along well for me until I stopped in at the library yesterday to return some books and grabbed Conspiracy in Death to take home with me. This promptly meant that I dropped everything to crack this one open. I'm shaking my head at myself even as I type this. So now I somehow have three books that I am currently attempting to read all at once. Wow.
This week is probably going to fly by thanks to the upcoming holiday weekend. I have family coming in town so it might continue to be quiet here on the blog. Or not as I am in the mood to write up a couple of blog posts. It just all depends on how much I get accomplished today. I hope that everyone has a great week filled with a couple of good books.
