I took another week off from blogging - no real reason why other than I've just been busy and lacked the motivation to write up reviews. I feel like the past two weeks have been super busy but not really sure why. Eh...that's what happens sometimes! I managed to finish seven books in February which I was pretty happy with. Not as good of a reading month as January but it was shorter and I'm still currently ahead on my Goodread's goal.
I didn't finish a single book last week which is the first time that has happened all year! I'm not in a reading slump though - I just haven't been finding the time to curl up with a book. I wouldn't have any books to update you on if I hadn't finished two the previous week. I did go to the used bookstore yesterday though which left me a very happy reader. I've got a fresh new stack of books to read and there isn't much better than that! In other news, the kids are on spring break this week which they are pretty thrilled about. I'm hoping that it will be a much less hectic week since the running around will be kept to a minimum. My house could definitely use some deep cleaning and I don't even want to talk about the laundry situation currently. LOL! I'm also hoping that this will mean some extra quality reading time but that remains to be seen. But let's get back to the books. Since my last update I finished the following books:
Unsub by Meg Gardiner was a really intense and thrilling read. I kept hearing really great things about this series (book two recently released) and I've got to agree. It had me reading frantically trying to see how it would all turn out. I'm eager to get my hands on the second book because although there is closure in this book - there is also an open story line that I'm left wanting answers to.
Born In Death by J.D. Robb was the perfect follow-up as this is a personal favorite series of mine. It was great to jump back into a mystery like this one with some of my favorite characters. I especially enjoyed this one as it had some laugh out loud moments to it as well. I adore this series and each book is an enjoyable read for me!
I'm now currently reading the following:
Curious about which books I brought home from my used bookstore trip?
I brought all of these gems home with me and STILL have almost $30 worth of in-store credit available. Gotta love it! I'm excited to add all of these to my shelves and read them in the hopefully near future. Have you read any of these? Any that I should bump up to the top of my never-ending TBR list?
I'm off to work on writing up some book reviews. I'm falling a bit behind and would like to get some posts prescheduled for the month. Life is going to get pretty darn busy soon enough and I can see my blogging time dwindling down because of it. Plans for the rest of the day include laundry and reading otherwise. I would really like to get some other things accomplished around the house but we will have to wait and see if that happens.
Happy Sunday and Happy Reading!
Oh you got some good looking books. Black Ice has been on my TBR forever! And you still have 30 bucks of credit left which is awesome!ReplyDelete
Have a great week!
Samantha - I heard someone say how Black Ice is a must read if you enjoy romantic suspense so I couldn't not bring it home with me :)Delete
You definitely got some great looking books! I've read A Superior Death many years ago. Think it might be the 2nd in the Anna Pigeon series. It's not my favorite, but not because of any issues with it. Blind Descent is my favorite - takes place at Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico. And I also like Firestorm where Anna assists with fighting fires in California. That one was very scary. Almost all of these have either been on my list or I might even own some of them. I might have read Until You're Mine, but I think the US and UK books had different titles. Can't think what the UK title was. I know I've read at least one book by Samantha Hayes. And Born in Death - well, I love Eve and Roarke. ;-)ReplyDelete
Have a good week!!
Kay - We have such similar reading tastes :) I'm really looking forward to reading further into the Anna Pigeon series because if you've enjoyed them then so will I!Delete
So glad you liked Unsub. I have it sitting on the stacks. Nice book haul. Good luck with that laundry.ReplyDelete
Nise - I definitely recommend reading that one! Let me know if you read it!Delete
I need to be getting books out of my house instread of buying them! I just have too many waiting to be read!ReplyDelete
Chuckles - That's probably true for myself as well but sometimes a good trip to the bookstore is exactly what a girl needs :)Delete
I think it must be spring fever that's getting to us! Hope you get to read more this week and at least you have lots of good books to choose from! Hurray for still having some credit to use up at the bookstore. Gotta love that. I have some HPB coupons so I'm planning a visit later this week :)ReplyDelete
Iliana - I agree - I think I have a bit of spring fever going on. Which is funny considering it is pretty darn cold outside still. I hope you enjoy your book shopping trip as well!Delete
