There's A Book


This fabulous weekly recap is hosted by Shelia of One Persons Journey Through a World of Books. Each week we recap what we’ve read and look at what’s coming up this week. If you’re interested head over to Shelia’s site and get involved! It’s a blast and I may even stop by to see what you’re up to!

Here’s what we’ve been up to this week:

This week has been a whirlwind of activity! Not only did we take off for a very long weekend on Thursday, but I reviewed more books this week than I ever think I have in one week. Seven reviews! Whoa! Not only that, but I’ve been reading like a mad woman! I’ve still got quite a few books to finish up this week which is why my own reading list is pretty much the same stuff as last week. Still, I’ve been on a roll with some fantastic books these last few weeks and I hope it keeps up!

  10. Aleetha says:

    The Ask And The Answer seems interesting.
    I think I have to learn from you how to read and write the review fast.
    Your list of review are awesome as usual

  11. Helen says:

    I have heard such good things about The Ask and the Answer. Have a great week

  12. Julie says:

    I can’t wait to read The Ask and the Answer. The first book left a great cliffhanger. It’s a tough read, but I liked it. Patrick Ness is one my new fave authors. Do you know he has a free novella for the series on Amazon? I’ve been interested in reading Death Cloud. I’m going to enter! Happy reading πŸ™‚

    • Oh! You should try listening to the Chaos Walking series, it’s definitely one of the best audiobooks out there and makes the reading easier. πŸ™‚ I didn’t know about the free novella! I’m going to have to check that out! Thank you for the tip!

  13. Larissa says:

    Wow, you had a crazy busy week! Looking forward to the next one =D

  14. Kylie says:

    Hmm, another series to add to my TBR list. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  15. I cannot wait to read Angelfire and am hoping to get The False Princess soon too. I know you love Monsters of Men because it is as good as the other two Chaos Walking books. Have a wonderful week

    • I think you’ll really enjoy Angelfire, it’s been pretty intense from the get go, which is fantastic!

      I’m already loving Monsters of Men! It’s amazing! Non-stop all the way to the end I’m sure. πŸ™‚

  16. Majanka says:

    So many novels! Lucky you. The False Princess is on my TBR list and I love the cover of Ask And Answer.

    Here’s what I’m reading this week.

  17. carol says:

    Saving CeeCee is one of my favourites from last year.

    Just finishing The Scarlet Kimono
    and starting Miss Julia speaks her mind

    Enjoy ur reading week

    carol

  18. Kah Woei says:

    I like that cover for The Ask and the Answer. Makes me thinks of westerns πŸ™‚

  19. Kristin says:

    Great week! I have Skipping a Beat on my tbr list – looking forward to reading your review!

    My It’s Monday post can be found here.

  20. Gina says:

    Hope you enjoyed the LONG weekend! Despite the lack of long weekend, I actually finished three books (Whoo-HOO!) so February reading is almost all done and March here I come. ^_^ Looks like another busy week (same old same old). Hope you’re enjoying CEECEE! Great story…filled with emotion and beauty. Happy reading!

  21. I read your review of The Ask and the Answer and see that you also have started the next book in the series. On the basis of your review, I should probably pick up this book. I wasn’t sure as I didn’t like The Knife as much as other books similar to it. But maybe I should just try and see.

    Happy reading!

    • I’d actually suggest giving the audio a go if you didn’t enjoy reading it. The narrator(s) for the series add so so much and it really makes it like listening to a movie. It’s brilliant! Maybe pick up a free trial from audible and try the first book again. I’ve loved it!

  22. Cat says:

    You had a great week. The Patrick Ness books do seem to get great reviews so I really must try them soon.

    Have a great reading week!

  23. Dollycas says:

    I have seen Skipping A Beat everywhere, I may have to add that to my wish list. Kaden, my 3 year old grandson is standing right here by me and he is pointing at the screen and wants to “go there”. You background looks like so much fun to him!!

    • Oh my! That is absolutely adorable! I could nearly give him a hug from here. I love it! You are one lucky grandma, that’s for sure! How sweet!

      You should definitely give Skipping a Beat a go, I think you’d really like it! πŸ™‚

  24. wow such a busy week lol. I can barely at times read a book a week. Thanks for stopping by my blog. πŸ™‚

  25. MarthaE says:

    I commented on a couple of your reviews. What a busy week you had. Seven reviews – that’s great.
    I hope this week goes well too.

  26. Sherree says:

    I just finished reading “Deadly Ties” by Vicki Hinze. I wrote a review and posted it on my blog. I got the book to do a review, but now I cannot find the sheet of paper that had the site that I was to do the review for! I think that my desk needs cleaned.

  27. RAnn says:

    Off to check out your reviews (as if my kids really need more books).

  28. I’ve heard such good things about the Monsters of Men series, I’ll have to read your reviews!

    Have a great one this week πŸ™‚
