It's been a few weeks since I've participated in this meme as I've been on holidays and then the week leading up to getting two kids ready for a three-week trip to the United States and the week afterwards is just as busy. But for the first time, instead of driving around Washington, DC, as per usual, we actually spent a couple of days there and I was so excited. I'm always like that though and as I was driving in Washington at the time, I probably should not have taken my hands off the wheel to point at the Pentagon in childish excitement as that is a death wish, especially on a Friday afternoon. But I couldn't help myself!!!!!
I'm currently reading Velocity by Alan Jacobson and part of the story takes place in Washington and for the first time, I could actually picture how it all looks instead of from movies or documentaries.
Anyways, we had a great time on our trip and I managed to get a lot of reading done, far more than when I was at home. Myrtle Beach is a great place to relax and read, and I certainly enjoyed sitting by the pool, watching my kids swim, and reading a great book.
Books I Read Last Week:
Restoring Harmony by Joelle Anthony - I love dystopian literature. A good young adult novel for those who love the dystopian genre.
The Secret of Happiness by Demosthenes Armeniades - I loved this book and was caught off guard by the twists and turns and quirky characters. It was definitely not what I was expecting.
Damaged by Pamela Callow - A legal thriller that had a lot of interesting characters, set in Halifax. I'm not really a huge fan of legal thrillers, but I thoroughly enjoyed this one and can't wait until her next book is published in January.
The Poet Prince (Book 3, The Magdalene Line) - Not as good as the first two books, but still interesting. Although touted as a trilogy, the ending definitely suggests another book may be in the works. This book was somewhat disconnected in its storytelling, and I didn't enjoy it as much as the other two.
Books I Am Currently Reading:
April & Oliver by Tess Callaghan
Velocity by Alan Jacobson - I am almost finished, and I am having difficulty putting this one down.
The Thyssen Affair by Mozelle Richardson
Books I Am Planning to Read:
Extraordinary by Nancy Werlin
Jealousy by Lili St. Crow
It's been an interesting few weeks and there is a lot to do in the next few months. I have some product reviews coming up, some for Blogmania and some on my own as I have been approached by CSN Stores and by other companies to review some products. It's exciting and busy too!!! There are a few tours coming up in September and October and it's also back to work time.
What are you reading? And do you have any exciting projects lined up for fall?
Happy Reading Everyone!!!!
