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!
Welcome in. I guess everyone is in the throes of Christmas pre-planning. I see shopping numbers already increased in our local area. My washing machine went crazy in the last week and I had to go buy a new one, after weighing up the options of repair or replace. Even though it felt like yesterday that I got it, it is eleven years old. It still has to be delivered, they said mid week so fingers are crossed for it.
Apart from that a very ordinary week ( yay for ordinary), I sewed and er... no housework, took the car to get its warrant - job that had to be done. Now I am up reasonably early looking at the weather and wondering how soon is kind to go out and mow the lawn before the rain comes. It's Monday, so I am going to say 8.30am. Sorry any sleepers in. Heavy rain is in the forecast.
Other than that I have been taking stock of the challenges I have participated in and will participate in for 2017. (Less). I have also now posted the two challenges I will host for 2017. I will also be taking part in Flylef's and A Kernel of Nonsense commenting challenge for January.
What I read last week:
I finished listening to Endless Chain. This was a reread for me and I really loved it all over again. I look forward to rereading the whole series with the promise of maybe a new one in the series coming later on.
I completed reading Breath of Fire, I liked it but I have some small reservations. I keep seeing ideas from other books in it. Even reading Cinder I saw something similar. Might just be me, seeing things where they are not!
#37 in the series, I am almost caught up as I have read the two recent ones. 2017 will see me totally caught up. The killer was horrible and totally ungrateful, in contrast to Nixie who while having had such terrible things happen to her has an attitude of supreme gratitude. She made a cameo appearance in this book. The little girl whose family was massacred in front of her from a book way back.
I finally got around to reading Cinder, after it has been on my radar since it was published, thanks to Kellee from Unleashing Readers actually, as it was her review that first attracted me. I so look forward to reading the rest of the series. This one so clever.
What I am reading at present:
This is the first one in a series I read the third one of recently, and liked it enough to go back! So am listening to this one - almost 23hours so will keep me going for awhile.
Reading from print
#2 in her Black Dagger Legacy series - just published. I have a review copy thanks to Hachette NZ.
An older one of Emilie Richard's books that I am catching up on.
And from the TBR another 'oldie'.
