What I'm Reading This Week

I made pretty good progress on my list of books last week.  Still working on The Pigeon Pie Mystery by Julia Stuart.  It's just not catching my attention.  I hate it when that happens.  But I may just be getting to the turning point in the story, so I will keep reading.

This week's reading has a lot of mass market paperbacks.  Easy to read, easy to pass onto others.  I have two to return to their owner, and two I want to pass on next week, so they are a priority:

Third in the series.  Love it!

Atticus' adventures take a turn in book #4

Fiction about Frida Kahlo.  ARC from publisher

Krewe of Hunters are back in a new trilogy

Creepy Great Lakes mystery/romance
second in trilogy

On my Nook!  Turn of the century drama
So.  Plate full.  I've hit 100 books for the year, and only have 25 more to complete my goal.  Bud tells me next year to not have a goal, and not put so much pressure on myself to read all the time.  I may take his advice.  I am still whittling away at my piles, and for every book I read, I'm either giving it to someone else, finding a place on a bookshelf to keep it, or putting it in the pile for the used book store.  I do like this planning each week's reading.  But as soon as I hit "post" for this blog, I will find another book I'd rather read first.  Too many choices!

And dang it all!  I bought 5 books last week.  And I have 2 more on hold at the bookstore.  
Anyone selling ADDICTED TO BOOKS t-shirts?  I'd like one, please.


  1. I love the Iron Druid Chronicles and have an ARC of the 5th I can't wait to read!

    Have a great reading week!

    1. The Iron Druid Chronicles are addictive, aren't they? I also have #5 from Netgalley and can't wait to get to it.

      Thanks Shelleyrae! Have a great week reading :) Wish I could spend the rest of this week doing just that and nothing else.
