This is a weekly meme run by Book Journey!
Post the books completed last week, the books you are currently reading, and the books you hope to finish this week.
Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme that was created by Marcia at The Printed Page, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring meme (details here). It is hosted at Cindy’s Love of Books for the month of April.
I had another busy week, I’m dogsitting for a couple of weeks so I’ve been trying to take the dogs out more, especially now that the weather is so nice here. My dogs don’t play fetch, but the visiting dog does, so there’s been a lot of playing ball and stick in the backyard! Beagles don’t respond well to this, just fyi – they just sit and howl at the injustice of the fact that they don’t play fetch.
Books completed last week:
Gone to Ground – Brandilyn Collins: This was a murder mystery set in a small town in Mississippi. I didn’t love it, but didn’t hate it either. I’d describe it as a good summer pool or beach read.
Silence – Becca Fitzpatrick: I was half dreading this one, since I didn’t like the previous installment, but I had heard good things from other readers I trust. It was definitely the best book in the series so far!
Books I’m reading this week:
Outlander – Diana Gabaldon ~ Page 90: I haven’t wanted to put Outlander down, but I did to read those previously mentioned books. Since I feel like it’s calling to me so much, I decided to make it my primary focus for the week.
Jane Eyre – Charlotte Bronte ~ Page 280: No Jane progress this week.
Books I acquired this week:
I thought about buying books, but didn’t actually purchase anything, nor did I receive anything in the mail this week. I’m expecting a few to arrive soon, these things seem to come in waves.
What I watched this week:
- Fashion Police, The Soup, Chelsea Lately, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, 1 girl 5 gays, The Ellen Degeneres Show, The Graham Norton Show
