It’s Monday! What are you reading? January 13, 2013
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 Lori’s Reading Corner for the month of January.
I had a slower reading week than the last couple, but I think it’s because I’m reading so many at once right now. I’m sure I’ll finish at least one of them this week.
I was also having some major browser problems and finally got them resolved this week, and I’m very happy about that. It was a significant issue for pretty much everything I do online, one of those experiences that makes you realize how much we use computers these days.
Books completed last week:
Frozen Heat – Richard Castle: I didn’t think this was quite as good as the previous Nikki Heat novel, but I did enjoy it. This series always entertains me!
Books I’m reading this week:
Blindspot – Jane Kamensky and Jill Lepore ~ Page 130: I’m going through a stack of old ARCs that I never got around to reading and picked this one from the choices.
The Panem Companion – V. Arrow ~ Page 27: I received this one through NetGalley a bit ago and started it late last week. It’s an analysis of the world Suzanne Collins created in The Hunger Games trilogy.
Emma – Jane Austen ~ 24%: A bit of Emma progress this week.
The Hunter/Farmer Diet Solution – Dr. Mark Laponis ~ 80%: I didn’t read any of this one this week either.
Books I acquired this week:
Shiver – Maggie Stiefvater: I found this one on sale in the Kindle store. I’ve been wanting to read it for awhile so I grabbed it.
Highland Surrender – Tracy Brogan: Another Kindle book, this one is for a review and tour coming up in February.
Suddenly a Spy – Heather Huffman: I’m participating in a blog tour for this later this month, so I received the Kindle edition this week.
Seeds of Discovery – Breeana Puttroff: Another blog tour book via the Kindle.
