It's Monday! What Are You Reading? - May 24, 2010

>> Monday, May 24, 2010

Today in Canada its Victoria Day (or affectionately known around these parts as May long) in which we celebrate Queen Victoria's birthday.  It was a grey day here in Winnipeg, perfect for reading of which I got to do not much of.  But that's okay, the day is not over yet!  

I did, however remember about this meme hosted by Sheila at One Persons Journey Through A World of Books in which we share our most recent and upcoming reads!

I was a reading whore last week, burning my way through the first 3 books of Nora Roberts Bride Quartet.  The first one is Vision in White (The Bride Quartet, Book 1) which of course got me hooked and left me wanting more but with the generous help of a good friend who kindly downloaded book 2 Bed of Roses (The Bride Quartet, Book 2) to her Kindle, I was able to get my fix.  Lastly, my hubby visited my local library and snagged Savor the Moment (The Bride Quartet, Book 3) off the Express Bestseller shelf and delivered it to me at my place of employ.  You know the saying, don't you "Happy Wife, Happy Life".  So far, a quite enjoyable series but I will need to be waiting til the fall for book 4 Happy Ever After (The Bride Quartet) which I'm fairly sure will be worth waiting for.

For my T4MC, I needed a book by an author read in March, April May or June and after looking around for a bit, I finally had a facepalm moment and went to my old standby of "The Man" F. Paul Wilson and am currently reading An Enemy of the State (The LaNague Federation, Book 1) and so far, so good.

My boss is reading the first Jack Reacher novel Killing Floor (Jack Reacher, No. 1) and is loving it so I think that's going to be next.  That or I have a few other options for my T4MC which is winding up soon!

How about you?

Once again, its Monday (how does that keep happening?) and time for this great meme hosted by Sheila over at One Person's Journey Through A World of Books!  This is a great meme to check out what other people are reading!

The Past:
I just finished reading California Demon: The Secret Life of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom (Book 2) and really enjoyed this second in the series!  Very entertaining in many ways!

After reading a recommendation, I picked up this from the library Vision in White (The Bride Quartet, Book 1).  I enjoy most of her books that I've read so far and am looking forward to this series.

Looking Forward To:
I must be under a big rock because I didn't know this was coming out (or else I knew but forgot which is quite likely) but I cannot wait!  Love, love this series: The Devil Colony (Sigma). I love thriller and have read many and most just don't cut it like the Sigma Force novels, IMHO.

And...*and*...Aloysius...Fever Dream.  This is another one I cannot wait for!

So, what's up for you in the book world?


It's Monday! What Are You Reading? - May 10, 2010

I missed doing this meme last week and just had to do it this week.  Hosted, as always, be Sheila at One Person's Journey Through A World of BooksIt's a great way to find out what other people are reading.  Check it out!

The Past:

It took me a while, but I finally finished The 13th Apostle which I only found to be just okay.  Another of those books that didn't develop the characters to make them believable to me.

The Present:

For some reason, I had a tough time deciding what to read next.  I scoured my TBR pile and finally came up with California Demon: The Secret Life of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom .(Book 2)I recently read the first one in the series and really enjoyed it.  I think any Mom could relate to some aspects of this story, told in a humorous way.  Very entertaining!

So...what are you reading this week?
