It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? – 2 October 2017

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? Button
Hosted by Kathryn from Book Date, this is a weekly event to share what we’ve read in the past week and what we hope to read, plus whatever else comes to mind. To learn more about each book, just click on the book cover!

Not a bad week thanks to audiobooks. I still find myself working on craft projects rather than reading in the evenings, and I have made peace with that. It is what I need to do right now in order to maintain my sanity in this insane world into which we have been plunged.


FINISHED SINCE THE LAST UPDATE:

The Waking Land by Callie Bates Get Well Soon by Jennifer Wright The Glass Spare by Lauren DeStefano 

The Callie Bates novel was a fun fantasy of power struggles and belief and nature. Entertaining and engrossing, I stayed up past my bedtime  a few nights in a row reading and even sneaked in some reading time at work to finish it.

Jennifer Wright’s book about plagues was amazing. So amazing that I now want to read anything she might have published. It was funny and informative and scary and just about perfect for nonfiction.

Lauren DeStefano’s latest series starts out slowly and improves as it progresses. I was worried that the story was too predictable, so I was pleasantly surprised when the story went into directions I did not expect. I still worry that the series will end like I suspect it will, but this first book in the series proved my guesses incorrect.


DID NOT FINISH:

A good week.

    Your current reads are very Halloween-y! At least based on the covers!

      They are, aren’t they? The King novel definitely. The Phillips novel is a different type of horror, but I am thoroughly enjoying it.
