Things have gotten a little nuts here at home lately and I haven’t been able to keep up with the weekly memes. I’m hoping to get back into the swing of things soon. *crosses fingers*
I’m doing my best to not add to the piles and piles of books I have already and I’m kind of failing. Now, I haven’t actually paid for any books (minus my one book box subscritpion and my Audible subscription), but I have been using the heck out of my PaperbackSwap account. *sigh*
As Meat Loves Salt by Maria McCann – this I saw as a suggestion to someone looking for dark m/m fiction on a Goodreads group. The blurb sounded intriguing so I put ordered it through PBS.
Sinful by Lori Foster, Maggie Shayne, Suzanne Forster, Kimberly Raye, and Kimberly Randell – this is another PBS pick. A good friend of mine was telling me about this series of brothers written by Lori Foster that she had loved. This book contains the third in the series (the other two books came a couple weeks ago).
Perfume: The Story of a Murderer by Patrick Süskind – I stumbled across a Netflix Original series called Perfume last week and thought it sounded fascinating. After a little research, I found the novel it was based off of and borrowed the audiobook from the library. Only a chapter in so far, but I love the narrator. He’s so very British and it’s amazing.
A Lily in the Light by Kristen Fields – I picked this up through the site I review for becuase I thought it sounded interesting.
What I’m Reading
I don’t know what the heck is going on, but I’ve not managed to finsih one book from my January Jam Jar Challenge yet. *sigh* I’m still working on the same two books.
I Invited Her In by Adele Parks – It took me so long to actually get into this book, but at 38% I think we’re finaly going to start getting to the meat of the story. I don’t mind a slow start, but throw me a crumb or two to keep me interested. Hahaha.
In Europe’s Shadow: Two Cold Wars and a Thirty-Year Journey Through Romania and Beyond by Robert D. Kaplan – I knew this would be one that took some time to get through so I’m not too upset that I haven’t finished it yet. Nonfiction can be like that sometimes. However, I really do like the casual writing style of the author. Makes the facts much less dry.
What I’ve Finished
Aside from my coffee? Not a darn thing.
What’s Up Next
I have my list for Fantastic February here, if you’re interested. Other than that, I have two Netgalley titles that publish in February: I Invited Her In, which I’m hoping to have finished before the week is out and Stroke of Luck by B. J. Daniels. Luckily (hah), Stroke of Luck should be a quick read. I don’t read a ton of straight up romance (I do love a good romantic suspense though), but I’m a sucker for a cowboy.
What’s your week look like? Pick up any good books that I need to read?
