Week in Review (29)

Random Thoughts

In non-bookish updates, I had a very long weekend! I am rather tired, but I didn't want to fall behind any more than I had to with things. I find these posts beneficial down the road. I am disappointed I missed yesterday because I had a Six Sentence Saturday planned. I didn't have it entirely done and then it was a thunderstorm when I actually would have had a chance to post it. One of these days I will begin to catch-up! There are so many books I want to talk about.

Challenge News

I read Under the Eagle by Simon Scarrow for the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge.

Reasons to be Happy by Katrina Kittle (from Sourcebooks)


  1. Funny, I borrowed Insatiable and Rules of Civility this week too!

  2. I have a copy of The Translator on my shelf waiting to be read, I just never seem to get to it.

  3. Good lord that's a lot of books in one post :p

  4. **Chris: Oh, possible buddy reads? I will email you...

    **Kim: Eva recommended it to me. It looks good. Hopefully I will get to it before I have to return it. :)

    **Chris: Did you see your most recent post? :p lol

  5. I read The Translator a few years back and found it to be a very moving and interesting read. I hope you get the chance to read it before it has to go back to the library.

  6. **Samantha: I hope I get a chance to read it, too!
