Sheila at Book Journey runs It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
Well I have had another wonderful week away from work, but now this week I am back to work for the last term haul. Less reading, less blogging and more of report writing coming up!
In the last week I read:
An oldie from Robyn Carr
Very good and my first of her
more recent books.
2nd in series. Getting ready to read the third.
I won't be reviewing this one, but did enjoy it.
Especially being reminded of the joy of bodyboarding in the surf.
New author publishing on 28th October.
Really enjoyed this delightful romance.
Snagged from NetGalley.
Finished listening to
Won't be reviewing either but pleasant listening.
I like Rosalyn Landor narrating these regency romances.
What I am reading this week:
I am listening to Someone Else's Love Story by Joshilyn Jackson.
I am reading Sophie's Legacy by her mother Lesley Elliot. This is a crime non-fiction book for The Eclectic Reader challenge organised by Shellyrae over at Book'd Out. I stood long at the library in the crime non fiction part, trying to pick out a book and came across this one. (Not my usual reading fare!) In 2008 a young woman was horribly murdered in New Zealand by a monster of a man. The trial played out on our TV news night after night. He repulsed me. Her mother writes of that day ( she was in the house) and the trial and the time afterwards. I am only a little way in, but already it has touched me. The murder was even more brutal than I want to know.
I am also about to start Seldom Come By, by Sherryl Caulfield. I was enticed into this trilogy by Sheree over at The Eclectic Reader and was fortunate to win the follow up to this one Come What May, on Sheree's blog. That book has already arrived - sent by the author, and it turns out she began writing the book I am just starting when she was living in the Marlborough Sounds in NZ. An idyllic place let me tell you. Sherryl Caulfield is Australian and now lives in Brisbane. You can read Sheree's review of Seldom Come By over on Goodreads.
Nothing! I think I may still be reading the above books next week, as I turn my eyes back to school. Whatever I do read I think it will be something very light as Sophie's Legacy and Seldom Come By may just require me to do that!
