It's Monday! What Are You Reading? - April 4

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted each week over at One Person's Journey Through A World of Books. Thanks Sheila for keeping us all on track with our reading each week.

Last week I read:
River Marked by Patricia Briggs. Fantasy. The latest book in the Mercy Thompson series and a good read, if not my favourite of the series to date.

I'm currently reading:
The Fires of Vesuvius by Mary Beard. Non fiction, history. I've gone back to reading this book a bit thanks to a show I saw on PBS about the destruction of Herculaneum.

Land of Painted Caves by Jean Auel. This is the book I'm reading primarily, and I'm really enjoying it although I've forgotten a lot of the details from Shelters of Stone.

I plan to read:
Lover Unleashed by J.R. Ward. The 9th book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.

Both books I'd intended to read last week, Shelters of Stone and Snow Flower and the Secret Fan are buried deep in a storage unit somewhere, so they will just have to wait, as borrowing them will be easier (and probably quicker to do).

Of course, should my local bookstore get Kings of the North in, all plans will be changed. That is the book I really want to read!

I was looking forward to Painted Caves, but the Amazon reviews aren't great; I'll look forward to yours.

I'm about half way through the book now, so it'll probably be a few days. So far though, it's been pretty good.

Thanks for the comment, RAnn

I need to read River Marked soon! I borrowed it to a friend and can't wait to get it back.

Here's what I'm reading.

I still have to start the Black Dagger Brotherhood series but I'm holding off in case I get drawn in! I have a few books lined up ready to go though.

I'm reading the 2nd Dragonriders of Pern book, by Ann McCaffrey, and I picked up some non-fiction at the library the other day, so trying to read a chapter a day in that.

I'd forgotten how much concentration non-fiction takes!

Elena said...

I bet you'll like it Kristen. I'll take a look at your list too.

Pwb, that's exactly what you want to have happen. and I'd bet that you will get hooked. Hope you give J.R. Ward's books a try soon.

Redhead, the Pern books are great.
Non fiction does take a different kind of concentration when reading, but it's worth it.

I have Land of Painted Caves too and am looking forward to it!

So far, Sheila, it's turning out to be pretty darned good. I'm definitely enjoying the read.

Thanks for commenting.
