Reading roundup – October 10th 2014

October 10, 2014

First of all, happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian readers!  An extra day to read!  Woohoo!  Have a great weekend and safe travels if you’re visiting family.  We already have the pumpkin pie ready.

As my regular readers may know, this week saw the release of some books that I had been anticipating.  See below for details.   Unfortunately I was also sick with a nasty headache and ended up taking Wednesday off work.  Fortunately, listening to the audiobook of Blood of Olympus was much less taxing than assisting people with their technical support issues – and, let’s face it, a lot more fun.

So let’s cut to the chase and talk about this week’s books.

Added to my library this week

Tribulare by Anne Robillard.  This is the sixth book in her contemporary fantasy series.  I really look forward to reading this, and I see the next two are due in ebook format at the end of the month!  Yay!  I have been collecting Robillard’s books in Kobo format.

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion.  This was rather an impulse buy with my last Audible credit for this month.  It’s about a socially inept geek who develops a scientific plan to find the perfect wife.  I’ve started listening to it and it is very sweet and amusing.  I loved the sample I heard on the Audible website so picked it up in audiobook format.

The Blood of Olympus, the finale to Rick Riordan’s Heroes of Olympus series.  If you’re not familiar with Riordan’s work, go check it out.  I have already finished this and did enjoy it very much.  Look out for the review next week. I picked this up on both Kindle and Audible formats.

Unraveled, the third and final book in Gennifer Albin’s Crewel World series.  This is a YA fantasy/dystopian series with an interesting magic system and politicking. I didn’t enjoy book two as much as book one in which the world building was excellent, but I am still interested enough to want to read the end of Adelice’s story.  I have this on Kindle and, with Whispersync for Voice, also Audible.

A Midwinter’s Tail by Sofie Kelly, the next in her series of cute cat mysteries. I am a sucker for these and this is a good series.  I’ve already started reading it.  I have A Midwinter’s Tail on Kindle.

Silverblind by Tina Connolly.  This is the third in Connelly’s fantasy series, the first of which was based on Jane Eyre meets the fae.  I picked up Silverblind in Kindle format, but I will likely wait til my next Audible credits hit and buy the audiobook instead as I enjoyed Rosalyn Landor’s narration of Ironskin so much.

So there you go.  Have a  great (long) weekend.
