It's Monday! What Are You Reading? - Aug. 24

It's Monday! What Are You Reading is kindly hosted each week by J. Kaye of J. Kaye's Book Blog. Now that I've participated for a few weeks, I'm finding that the meme is not only fun, it helps me set out some goals for the week.

Last week I thought I was being far too ambitious when I set out the list. It turns out that I wasn't so out of line after all.

Books I completed:

Nefertiti by Michelle Moran.
Historical fiction, the story of Nefertiti, her husband and the mysterious Amarna period in Egyptian history. I liked the book a lot.

City of the Gods by Sonny Whitelaw.
One of a number of Stargate SG1 novels I've bought. Not bad, and makes for a nice change of pace after the longer books I've been reading lately.

The Barque Of Heaven by Suzanne Wood.
My favorite of the Stargate novels I've read so far.

Defenders of the Faith by James Reston Jr.
Non Fiction. A good overview of the years between 1520 and 1536 from both the European perspective and that of the Ottoman Empire.

Currently, I'm reading Chalice by Robin McKinley, so I've met all of last week's goals.

This week I want to get Curse of the Tahiera by Wendy Gillissen read. I'm also skimming a Dictionary of Mythology that I bought yesterday. Beyond that, I have no set goals for the week.

Thanks for stopping by Jennifer. Nefertiti is definitely a good read, and now I can't wait to read Cleopatra's Daughter.

I've heard so many great things about Michelle Moran's books. Haven't read one yet.

I've only read the one so far, but I really enjoyed it.

Thanks for stopping by with a comment.
