Bout of Books

I am so excited to be participating in this again. I have had a STELLAR reading summer. This read-a-thon is the perfect cap to my readerfest. (My reading summer from June to August.).

I am planning on dipping my toes in the following reading pool:

  • Accused: A Rosato & Associates Novel (Rosato and Associates) (Lisa Scottoline)
  • Save the Date: The Occasional Mortifications of a Serial Wedding Guest (Jen Doll)
  • And When She Was Good (Laura Lippman)
  • The Glorious Heresies: A Novel (Lisa McInerney)
  • Some Kind of Peace (Camilla Grebe)
  • Hunting Shadows: An Inspector Ian Rutledge Mystery (Inspector Ian Rutledge Mysteries) (Charles Todd)

  • I don't think I'll be able to get to them all, but I like a varierty!

    Are you participating in this round? What are you going to read?


    MONDAY, August 22

    Well, as usual, I am starting out reading things not from my list.

    I am still miffed about my experience reading Rush (The Breathless Trilogy Book 1) so I want to clear the series from my shelf.

    I am reading Fever (The Breathless Trilogy Book 2) by Maya Banks.

    TUESDAY, August 23

    I am liking Fever a lot more than Rush. Whew!

    WEDNESDAY, August 24

    Finished Fever! Tumbling into Burn. Been looking forward to hearing about Ash since book one of the trilogy.

    Burn (The Breathless Trilogy Book 3) by Maya Banks

    THURSDAY, August 25

    Still working on Burn, but feeling the need to mix it up a bit. I am going to listen to an audiobook of John Buchan's 1915 novel.

    The Thirty-Nine Steps by John Buchan

    FRIDAY, August 26

    UGH! Didn't get any reading done today.  It Takes a Witch came in the mail today. It is one of the August reads for the First in a Series Cozy Mystery Book Club. I am gonna try and squeeze it in tomorrow.

    SATURDAY, August 26

    Finished Burn and The Thirty-Nine Steps! Now reading:

    It Takes a Witch (Wishcraft Mysteries, #1) by Heather Blake
