2013 Thankfully Reading Weekend Wrap-Up Post

Update:  I didn’t do too bad for this.  I forgot to post my goals the other day, but oh well.  I made it through 2 books and 1 graphic novel.  I am partially through 3 other books as well.  My son had my Kindle for a little awhile so that’s why I started another book.  

This was hosted at Jenn’s Bookshelves.

My (Tentative) List To Choose From:

  1. The Last Boyfriend (Inn Boonsboro #2) by Nora Roberts
  2. Frankenstein: Prodigal Son by Dean Koontz
  3. Silent City by Alex Segura (started today – 10%)
  4. Something Borrowed, Someone Dead by M. C. Beaton – (22% done)
  5. The Longings of Wayward Girls by Karen Brown (17% – I really need to finish this) (made it to 26%)

2013 Thankfully Reading Weekend Kick-Off!

 

I found this through Tif Talks Books, one of the blogs I follow.  It’s hosted by Jenn’s Bookshelves.  I thought this would be the perfect ending to November and the NetGalley November Challenge.  I’m starting a day late , but I didn’t get much reading done on Thanksgiving anyway.  The kids and I went to my mom’s and enjoyed dinner with (most) of my family.  Then we took a nap before coming home.  All of the food was delicious and I ate way too much, but everybody had a good time.  Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving.

I did finish a book today so I’m counting it for this.

My (Tentative) List:

  1. The Last Boyfriend (Inn Boonsboro #2) by Nora Roberts
  2. Frankenstein: Prodigal Son by Dean Koontz
  3. Silent City by Alex Segura (started today – 10%)
  4. Something Borrowed, Someone Dead by M. C. Beaton
  5. The Longings of Wayward Girls by Karen Brown (17% – I really need to finish this)

Weekly Recap – 09/16/13 to 09/22/13

I got a little more reading done this week but not as much as I had hoped for the Tackle Your TBR Pile Read-a-thon.  Game of Thrones is taking me longer than I expected.  I downloaded the audio book from my library and that is helping to get through it faster, plus I can listen to audio books at work.

I Read:

I finished If There Be Thorns by V. C. Andrews and Deal Breaker by Harlan Coben.  I am halfway through Game of Thrones and I started reading Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein.  I don’t usually read more than one book at a time, but it just happened that I would have my Kindle with me or the wrong book in my bag so I ended up reading four books at once.  I don’t know if this making me more productive or less though.

If There Be Thorns (Dollanganger, #3)Deal Breaker / Drop Shot (Myron Bolitar, #1-2)Rose Under FireA Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)

From the Library:

I reserved Deal Breaker/Drop Shot by Harlan Coben at my library months ago and it finally came.  Of course when I went to pick it up though I browsed through the shelves and ended up getting a couple more books.  🙂  I got Daddy’s Girl by Lisa Scottoline and One Good Turn by Kate Atkinson.  I didn’t realize One Good Turn was part of a series until I got home and added it to my To Reads on Goodreads so now I’ll have to get the first one also.

Daddy's GirlOne Good Turn (Jackson Brodie Series #2)

NetGalley:

Only requested a couple this time and they are not due for release for awhile.

  • The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
  • In The Blood by Lisa Unger
