This is my first time participating in this meme instead of my usual Sunday Salon post. I like the idea of not only sharing a weekly reading update but also sharing about some of the books that find their way into my home. This week was the Bout of Books read-a-thon and although I didn't meet my goal (finishing 3 books) I did manage to finish two great books! I'm calling that a success as not only did my husband have shoulder surgery this week but football practices began for the oldest. And school started! It was a busy, busy week of running and tending to my family. Now that I think about it, I'm not sure how I finished any books. LOL!
Last Week on the Blog I:
- Admitted that I am a book hoarder with my latest book acquisitions here
- Shared summer fun photos with everything else that I have been doing besides reading here
- Review of Remains of Innocence by J.A. Jance (blog tour)
- Reasons Why I Love my Library #3 post
- Not sure what else....I have something in mind but we will see
I have received these two books as a giveaway thanks to The Book Pushers. I think they both sound fabulous. I have been craving some historical romance so these will fit in perfectly with my reading mood.
Books Finished Last Week:
Grave Peril by Jim Butcher - (Reread) It was so great to get back to Harry Dresden's world even though it just keeps getting crazier! This book was a roller coaster ride, whirlwind of a book. I am eager to see what the next book brings.
Loyalty in Death by J.D. Robb - (Reread) I adore this series so much and it is because of books like this. Peabody steals the show in this book and I couldn't get enough. I flew through the pages even with all of the craziness that was this week. I have nothing to say but good things about all of these books!
I am STILL reading way too many books at once. I am going to attempt to buckle down this week and finish these three up. That is my goal anyways! It might be a bit difficult though as I grabbed a bunch of books from the library this weekend that I am super excited to read. I will not start any new books...I will not start any new books...I'm just going to keep telling myself this.
Now I'm off to go focus on my laundry pile for a little bit. I'm super excited to visit some of your blogs and see what everyone else is reading on this gorgeous Sunday!
