I haven't finished ANYTHING in the past week! I'm still working on Virgin and the Crab by Robert Parry. Honestly, I'm really enjoying this book...can't really explain why I'm reading it so slow. Maybe my leg problem affected my brain's regulation of reading speed...LOL!
On the agenda this week:
I'm just going to re-post my reading goals for Kristen's (Bookworming in the 21st Century) Huge TBR Readathon (Take 2).
Note: I received Angel Star by Jennifer Murgia today so I will be reading it this week for the readathon.
This is my self-imposed goal...to read the following books (and start at least one):
- Finish Virgin and the Crab by Robert Parry (yes, I'm STILL reading it. I'm enjoying it, believe me...so I'm not sure what the problem is!)
- Read Venetia Kelly's Traveling Show by Frank Delaney
- Finish The Red Door by Charles Todd (I'm only in about 40-50 pages)
- Read The International Kittens of Mystery by Chris Dolley for this week's Cat Thursday
- Read (hopefully) or start The Queen's Pawn by Christy English
- Read (hopefully) or start Dracula in Love by Karen Essex
- Start Under the Dome by Stephen King (I have been wanting to read this for months...I'd like to at least start it!)
- Possible addition to list...I'm supposed to be receiving Angel Star by Jennifer Murgia from Other Shelf Tours.
Upcoming in August:
By Fire, By Water--Mitchell James Kaplan...for review from the author
Quicksilver--Joy Spraycar...for review from the author
The Handmaid's Tale--Margaret Atwood...going to join Hey Lady! Watcha Readin'? in the Classic Reads Book Club read-a-long at the end of August and through September.
Not sure what else is on the agenda for August, but I have a ton of books slated for challenges that I MUST get to (Handmaid's Tale is one of them...woot)!
Whew...I forgot how long these posts take! So what are you reading from your mailbox this week? =O)
