It's Monday What Are You Reading?
It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books. We discuss the books that we've read and what we're planning to read for the week.
Read and reviewed this week:
The Forest of Hands and Feet by Carrie Ryan
I am trying to make a point to read more YA novels this year, so I chose this as one of the first ones. It was a page turner for sure. It is a dystopian
story that have been continued in two more books.
The Fourth Man by K.O. Dahl
This Scandinavian mystery was a dark tale that led a twisty path to the end. I'll read more by this author.
Ibis: A True Whale Story by John Himmelman
This is a children's picture book that I read for the Read to Me Picture Book Challenge. The pictures are nice and the story catches the kids attention. I like it.
Listened to and reviewed this week:
A Red Herring Without Mustard by Alan Bradley
I LOVE this series starring the precocious 11 year old Flavia de Luce. The reader did a fantastic job, Flavia's moods, thoughts, and quirks were wonderfully rendered. Read it or listen to it, just don't miss it. I listened to this one on my iPod while working around the house.
A Prisoner of Birth by Jeffrey Archer
This was a really good court procedural. It was not a thriller but it kept my interest all they way to the end. It was a long book so took two or three weeks of listening to finish it. I listened to this in the truck on the way to and from work and town.
What I'm reading and listening to this week:
Dreadnought by Cherie Priest
Lone Star Noir edited by Bobby Byrd & Johnny Byrd
Chasing Fireflies by Charles Martin (iPod)
Jolie Blon's Bounce by James Lee Burke (I'll finish this one tomorrow or the next day and start:)
The Glass Rainbow by James Lee Burke
I have really been enjoying a lot of books on my iPod lately since I don't have to buy them any more. That's right! Our library now has a digital branch and I can download audio books from the library to my iPod. YEA!
