Summary -

What a reading week!  I read a bunch of books and hope to carry the momentum into this week.  I also made great progress on review books and read several for scheduled reviews next week.  It was a busy week on the home front.  Hubby's birthday was Tuesday, my mom's retirement luncheon was Thursday, she retired on Friday and I had my hubby's birthday party with about 20 guests on Saturday night.  I spent most of the day Saturday making spaghetti, cutting up salad fixings and making the desserts.  The party was a blast and hubby was very happy.  The kids also had a lot of fun.  This week looks to calm down.  I have my check-up and MRI at Duke today and then it's back to work tomorrow.  The kids will be at my parents most of the week and that will make for quiet evenings and more reading time :)

Favorite book of the week:  I loved Virals - it was different and good.  I also love A Change of Heart - what an amazing subject to deal with and make an entertaining read.  Check  both of these out.  A Change of Heart is out now and Virals will be out I believe in November.

Okay, I admit I don't know any of the books you read - so... which one out of the bunch did you really like? I'll add it to my TBR list!

You read a lot of books I've never even heard of. :-)

I'm glad you liked The Clockwork Angel though. Justifies my putting it on my wishlist. LOL.

You have a few by Kathy Reichs going - I read her a long time ago and really enjoyed her. How are her audios? I am always looking for good audio.

Teddyree said...

Phew a busy and productive week, you've got some great books listed. I love listening to the Sookie books on audio. Happy reading again this week :-)

Didn't know Kathy Reichs had a new book out. (Hmmm, maybe it's not a new one! I'll have to check it out.)

I just wanted to tour a new reference book for readers and writers, "The Thinker's Thesaurus" by Peter Meltzer.Very cool thesaurus, with alternatives you just don't get in your run-of-the-mill thesauruses. Not only will you learn a ton, this book is very entertaining to read. It combines words which are probably going to be new to most readers, with examples of the words actually being used in recent books, newspapers, etc. And you find out, that the word is just perfect and that it really enlivens the writing. Let's face it, we're all readers here. Readers love words. This is a new way to love them more (and learn, too!).
