Sunday Post Meme"
Happy Sunday folks! I took a blogging break last week which was much needed. Sometimes you just need a quiet Sunday curled up with a book instead. It was a normal busy week which is starting to become our routine at this point. Spring is just around the corner and then things are really going to get crazy though. I'm trying to just appreciate the quiet evenings when we have them because it isn't going to be long before we have practices and games most every night. Not much else knew on that front though!
In between all of the hours that I've been working, I have been reading as much as possible. Because I didn't post a reading update last week, I've finished four books since my last Sunday post. Gotta love how that sounds!!! It makes me feel so accomplished even if it just what is hopefully becoming my normal average of two books a week. I've been having such a hard time though deciding what to read next. Does anyone else have this issue? I've got a huge stack of books checked out from the library, plenty on my own shelves and e-reader but yet I still struggle on picking that next book. It's crazy! I ended up using the random number generator to help me pick a couple of books out - one from my TBR challenge list and then one just from my TBR shelf on Goodreads (which is ridiculously huge). I think having those two books picked out to be read will help me to know what to pick next - at least once they come in from the library that is. Anywhoo - here is what I've finished since my last reading update:
The Unleashing by Shelly Laurenston - I picked this one up after hearing it mentioned on a podcast episode and it was a really great choice. I just breezed through the pages of this book and couldn't get enough. I heard the next book is even better which has me pretty excited! I'm bummed that there only seems to be three books in this series so far - but at least Laurenston has other books that I can check out!
Be A Good Girl by Tess Diamond - I absolutely am so excited about this author after reading this book! I feel like I'm constantly looking for good romantic suspense and this book delivered exactly that! The mystery was both thrilling and tense and with a romance that I could actually get behind. I'm excited to share my thoughts on this one soon.
Track of the Cat by Nevada Barr - This is my 2nd book finished for my personal TBR challenge and one off of my own shelves. I enjoyed this quiet mystery - it reminded me a lot of Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone series but in a different way. I'll explain it better (hopefully) when I write up my thoughts on it but I'm excited to have found yet another long standing series to read.
The Echo Killing by Christi Daugherty - Oh my goodness! I stayed up so late Friday night just so that I could finish this book. It was such a great read (I feel like I'm on repeat here but boy have I been reading some great books) and I'm really excited to for the next book in this new series. I will be writing up my thoughts on this one soon as well but will share them closer to its' release date.
I'm now currently reading the following:
I just started Unsub (my current print read) earlier this morning and I'm already seventy plus pages in. I'm well and truly hooked and plan on reading this one more this evening. Natural Thorn Killer will be my next read on my kindle. I've enjoyed this author's books in a different series so I'm really looking forward to checking this new series out! Let's all ignore the fact that I'm most definitely not caught up with the Pacific Northwest series of hers that is a favorite of mine.
These are actually all courtesy of Edelweiss. I don't even know which one I'm most excited about so let's go with all of them! My TBR is out of control you guys! And if you could see my library stack...well...it's a bit ridiculous but I don't mind. I just need a month to read them all!
Plans for tomorrow (I'm writing this on Saturday night) include working for a few hours and lots of laundry. The Walking Dead is back finally which I'm pretty pumped about! I would love to gets lots of reading time in as well with my current books. I also see a trip to the grocery store in my near future and maybe some meal prep. I've been cooking a ton since my husband's surgery - I don't think I'll ever be the best cook out there but I'm improving which is always good. I definitely plan on writing up a few reviews as well.
Happy Sunday and Happy Reading!
