Once again, last week was a very slow reading week around here. Didn't finish anything, and didn't get any reviews written. I did post a couple of movie reviews (Sherlock Holmes, Ten Items or Less), but only one of those was even vaguely book-related. Spent quite a lot of time playing around with new blog templates. And an enormous chunk of my week was taken up with restoring some lost genealogy database info (family history is fascinating work, but maddeningly time-consuming). Ultimately, though, I think I've just got the end-of-August blues. Hoping to perk myself up this week and actually get some reading done.
- Almost finished last week:
Think of a Number by John Verdon. I'm enjoying this one a lot and only have a short bit of it to go. Hope to finish it up tonight.
- Reading this week:
All Is Forgotten, Nothing Is Lost by Lan Samantha Chang. This is a Library Thing Early Reviewer book, so I'll be dropping everything else while I get it read. It's gotten very mixed reviews so far, but I'm looking forward to reading it.
The Big Guy (aka Hubby) just finished Think of a Number and he really liked it a lot. Glad to hear you also enjoyed it. I hope to get to it soon. Have a great week!ReplyDelete
I want to get Think of a Number for my husband -- he LOVES mystery novels, but we clash in that area. He reads only American crime fiction/mysteries and I prefer international crime. So thanks! I'm always looking for new stuff for him that readers I trust recommend!ReplyDelete
I know about that August type blues. I had it earlier in the month. Hope yours disappears soon. I really like that title "All is forgotten, Nothing is Lost." Hope it's a good pick me up.ReplyDelete
Hmmm..wondering if there is something in the air...lol. I had a very slow week too. I have seen "think of a number" a lot in cyberland. Will wait for your review to see if I should add it to my tbr bucket list.ReplyDelete
I've been feeling just the opposite, gotta read, gotta read as there are two weeks left (for me) before the Fall schedule kicks back into gear. Like the new design.ReplyDelete
Don't you just love LibraryThing Early Reviewers? I have won a few books there. Lately I have been having problems receiving the books though. My latest was supposed to be Infinite Days. I ended up buying a copy. My Monday report is here. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
I have the end of summer, little daughter now in high school blues :) I hope you get back to reading this week!!ReplyDelete
I am re-reading Twilight of Avalon by Anna Elliott, in preparation of reviewing book two in the series, Dark Moon of Avalon.
You read well!ReplyDelete
Have a great reading week ahead! Here is my Mondays: Mailbox/Where Am I/Musings post.
They both look good to me! I'll be watching for you reviews.ReplyDelete
Think of a Number looks very interesting. Hope you have a great week.ReplyDelete
Think of a number scares me!!!!ReplyDelete
This week's going to be a slow-reading week for me. Slogging my way through Mary Queen of Scots by Antonia Fraser. Very yawn-making. Have a great reading week!ReplyDelete
I have to get to Think Of A Number I have heard such good things about it. I have it, just haven't read it yet.ReplyDelete
