I think that I'm finally starting to adjust to this very busy schedule that my family currently has going. It isn't so stressful anymore which is a nice change. Practices are turning in to uninterrupted reading time which is a nice way for me to relax a bit. The only thing that threw a wrench in my plans this week was the fact that I got sick. Ugh! I managed to come down with this lovely cough/cold that everyone seems to be sharing with one another. I did nothing this week blog wise. In fact, I had a blog tour post I missed, and the only reason I managed to post ANYTHING was that I had scheduled it previously. Let's see if I can do better this week! I'm feeling much better which is a good start. Anyways let's talk books instead, shall we??
Last week on the blog I:
- Shared my thoughts on Dark Skye by Kresley Cole which I loved (and I actually just got the 1st book in this series from the library. Yay!)
The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith - A slow building mystery that I really could not get enough of. I love a good chunky mystery where I just can dive into the world that the author has created. I was a bit nervous as this is J.K. Rowling and all but I needn't have worried. I'm looking forward to grabbing the second book in this series very soon!
The Night Visitor by Dianne Emley - This was a paranormal mystery that I enjoyed as well. I actually had parts of this book figured out and others not so much. While I really enjoyed the mystery portion of this book, I didn't care for the paranormal portions as much. But that is just me and it still ended up being a good read. I will be sharing my thoughts on both of these books very soon.
I'm currently reading the following books:
The Haunting of Hill House is suitably creepy and I've been having fun taking notes for the read-a-long while reading. I cannot wait to see what everyone else thinks about this scary little book. I will be finishing it myself just in time to discuss on the first of October.
Sugar, Salt, Fat is quite a disturbing read about the food industry, and I'm still in the beginning pages of the book. It has definitely made me start paying more attention to the foods that I'm eating. Do I really need to add salt to my dinner? Or sugar to my coffee? It's intriguing but a slower read for me that I have to be in the right mood for.
A Penny for the Hangman is my current read on my ipad that I've just barely begun. It's a mystery though that sounds quite chilling from the description. I will be focusing on reading it this week as it is for an upcoming blog tour.
Thank to the publishers and Netgalley for both of these books!
and way TOO many library books to share here. Expect another library loot post very soon :)
I'm off to finish watching the Bears game and work on my laundry piles. I will hopefully be visiting all of you later on today. I hope that everyone has a great week filled with a few good books.
Happy Sunday and Happy Reading!
