It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organise yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!
Well last week was a big week politically for the USA and the rest of the world, like many I was glued to the TV watching with disbelief at the results. What tickled me was the very tired ten year old who sighed and almost fell asleep. Also the air brush goldfish kisses of congratulations!
Apart from that it was a pretty ordinary week, mostly it rained and seemingly another such week of it to look forward to!!
What week is ever ordinary! A severe earthquake at 2 min past midnight woke me up this morning and had me out of bed and seeking a doorway. (Don't think you are meant to do that but didn't have much to get under). So no sleep as we were rocked by quake after quake all night. A 7.5 but the epicentre is a little away from where I live. I only lost some books off my shelf, and we lost power for awhile. The house rocked like a bucking bronco for at least a minute. The epicentre (oops another one as I write) is in a farming and small town area so really still waiting to hear of damage. Imagine living right at the centre. It is at times like this that I think I'd like to live in another country!!
What I read last week:
I finished listening to....
I read for review.
I read from my TBR
Blackpeak Vines was set in New Zealand and the setting was beautiful and the book was well written. It was a 3 star read for me and I won't continue with the series, as just not enough happened for me, perhaps because I had just finished Every Dark Corner which was action packed.
What I am reading at present:
From my recently bought shelf...
