Friday Reads - 15th Edition
The House at Riverton by Kate Morton - I was going to read her newer book, but figured I should read this one first.
Affinity by Sarah Waters - It has been a while since I read a Sarah Waters book. I will be reviewing this with Marg at some point.
The Return of Captain John Emmett by Elizabeth Speller - This book is still on-going. I finished several of my read-alongs, but I still haven't managed to dedicate a lot of time to this book yet.
The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien - This is another example of being very behind on things... I think I will put my late post up tomorrow.
Interview with a Vampire by Anne Rice - This is sort of a reread. I started this book years ago and almost finished it, but I didn't really love it. Currently I find it very slow going, but we will see!
What are you reading? I envy all the people that got lots of reading time this weekend. I missed out on everything!
I think tomorrow will be my post for The Two Towers and Fragile Things. Then on Wednesday I will post about The Lantern. Part of me would love to get caught up with everything today, but I know that is an overload and no one will read all that. So, I will have to break it up! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and had fun with the read-a-thon if you had a chance to join. I remember the very first read-a-thon and signing up for a cheerleader. It was a lot of fun and I met a lot of new people as a result. I am so happy that it is still so popular all this time later. Dewey made a lasting impression on the blogging world, so she may be gone, but hopefully she will never be forgotten!
I also joined Pinterest today. I am a bit obsessed with quotes, so that's what I did for a bit this morning... Looked at quotes... Let's see if it just becomes another one of those things that I use for a while and then forget about forever.
It is hard to believe that the R.I.P. Challenge is almost over! I am not entirely sure I will get everything I want to get done, done, but I had a lot of fun in the meantime! In this weeks reading, the following books fit the R.I.P. Challenge: The Island of Moreau by H.G. Wells, Dearly, Departed by Lisa Habel, A Spell of Winter by Helen Dunmore, and Dracula by Bram Stoker. That's two books that are classics. I am back to reading a few of them here and there. Helen Dunmore is Canadian and her book it Gothic in nature. I am a bit sad by how few Canadian authors I have read this year. Dearly, Departed was from NetGalley. It is good, but I am not entirely sure about the zombie romance angle. I liked it, but strange! I look forward to the sequel.

Nothing this week....
My library bag is in the back seat of the car that the cc has at work, so will have to wait on this.
Nothing this week...
