"Welcome to It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!"
Oh my goodness but time has gotten away from me lately! I wish I had all of these amazingly good reasons why I took two plus weeks off from the blog but really it was because I was completely burned out. And not from blogging either which is unusual as a lot of times that is where my blogging breaks come from. No, I have just been tired from being constantly on the go thanks to real life. Sports practices, school for the kiddos (read: homework help), and being on the go EVERY weekend for the past three weeks has made me one tired mama. Plus, I am in charge of all housework/yard work as my poor husband recently had shoulder surgery. My house may not be as clean as usual (and my laundry piles are quite high) but I feel like I am holding my own pretty darn well. And I am cooking which is pretty impressive if you consider the lack of cooking skills that I seem to possess. LOL! Now it is time to catch up with you all, and share what I've been reading amidst all of the chaos. In the past couple of weeks I have finished the following books:
The Butcher by Jennifer Hillier- This book took me a bit to get into but by the end I couldn't set it down. I'm eager to read more by this author and see what other disturbing things that she comes up with. Review to (hopefully) come later this week!
Dawn's Early Light by Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris- I just adore this series!!! This book was just as good as I hoped it would be (if not better). I'm completely anticipating the fourth book even though it doesn't release until sometime next year. I also decided that I will end up rereading the first three books in this series BEFORE I continue on with the newest one. Why? Just because I love this series so much!
Dark Skye by Kresley Cole- Why haven't I tried this series before now??? This was such a good read (and quite steamy) which meant that I just flew through the pages. I can't wait to go back and see how it all began with the first book! Another book that I am hoping to review this week. And a new author to read lots more of!
After all of these great reads, I am now currently reading the following books:
I am really going to focus on finishing up The Night Visitor this week as I am participating in a blog tour for it next week. I'm about halfway through and it is starting to pick up the pace. The Cuckoo's Calling is my first official read for Carl's R.I.P. reading challenge although both of these books will fit for it. I'm really liking this one as well! Good books make all of the craziness worth it! And my family's happiness of course :)
While I play catch up on basically everything blog related, tell me what I missed these past two weeks. Are there any must reads that I need to check out? What have you been reading while I was away??
Happy Monday and Happy Reading!
