On Mondays, I join J. Kaye’s Book Blog in looking back at what I’ve read over the last week and forward at what I plan to read in the next one.
I had some good reading time this week! Click on the book titles for links to my review (if I’ve published it) or to further information on the book.
In audiobooks, I finished Sweet Talk by Susan Mallery. I enjoyed it, but I developed an issue with the book, which I discussed in my review. I then straightened out my license issues with Pushing Up Bluebonnets by Leann Sweeney, and made my way through it, with some pauses for confusion on my part.
On paper, I dove straight into One Scream Away by Kate Brady for tomorrow’s blog tour. I really enjoyed this once I started reading it as a thriller, rather than as romantic suspense. Check out my review tomorrow for details and a giveaway! I’ll have 5 copies available to lucky readers.
I then picked up the Twitter Book Club Book, Last Night in Montreal by Emily St. John Mandel. My review will be coming out this week, probably Wednesday or Thursday. I’m looking forward to the discussion on Twitter– I liked this book, and think it will lead to good conversation.
I also started my next book for Book Club L. We are reading Welcome to Biotech Nation by Moira Gunn. I’m slating this for reading one chapter per day, finishing before our July 30 discussion date. I’m not into the real meat of it yet, but I think it will be quite readable and educational. I think it will even be discussable.
On Sunday, I started the audiobook of Laurie R. King’s The Language of Bees. I enjoyed the physical book, but I didn’t find it to be one of the best of my favorite series. I’ll see if listening changes this opinion or reinforces it.
So what am I reading next? I don’t have any commitments this week, so I have some choices! I think I’m going to read Julie & Julia by Julie Powell and A Summer Affair by Elin Hilderbrand. But I might change my mind. And that’s just fine.
