I’m linking up with It’s Monday! What are you reading? hosted by Kathryn of The Book Date later on today. Kathryn took over this weekly, Monday meme from Shelia of Book Journey who had taken it over from J Kayne Book Blog. This meme is not just about adult books either. If you read picture and chapter books, juvenile fiction, or even YA, they count as well. Jen Vincent of Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee of Unleashing Readers give this Monday, book post link up a kid-focus.
How was your weekend? Sleeping in was the theme. I have these fleece sheets that are so warm and snuggly that it’s hard to leave them. The husband usually gets up early, fills his hungry belly, and then crawls back into bed. I end up sleeping more and let him nap as long as he can as he’s earned it.
Saturday the girls and I made use of our Netflix by watching A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding and then Christmas with a View. Afterwards we trolled for something else to watch and found Kim’s Convenience, a Canadian sitcom. It’s lighthearted like Fresh Off the Boat and we binged up until 11:30 pm Saturday and then finished off season two Sunday.
Well, there’s nothing better than putting your feet up on a Sunday afternoon and grabbing a good book.
How was your reading week? I finished A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir which is the second installment in the An Ember in the Ashes series.
Characters are constantly on the run, either hunting down others or fleeing from danger while on a mission. Bloodshed is happening all over the place. Conspiracy lurks while a political chessboard has pieces moving around. There are a few twists in the plot that took the story in directions and to places that surprised me. There is a somewhat cliff hanger but it gives you a bridge to the third book. I’m on the hold list for the Kindle version and the hard copy. I may get the latter first. Three stars.
- Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass #3) by Sarah J. Maas
In the Dugout
I had to return the second and third books because of hold lists and just didn’t have time to read hard copies. The first and four books I own on Kindle so I’m in no rush to finish them.
- The Black Witch (The Black Witch Chronicles #1) by Laurie Forest
- The Clockmaker’s Daughter by Kate Morton
- Time’s Convert (All Souls Trilogy) by Deborah Harkness
- The Year of Four (Phoebe Pope #1) by Nya Jade
It’s the first Monday of December. How’re you tackling your Christmas list? How do you buy for your spouse/significant other? Do you buy books for avid readers? How do you handle that especially since they read a lot? Have a good reading week. Happy reading to you.
