Good morning and welcome to another reading roundup. To be honest I don’t have a great deal to share with you this week. It’s been a heavy week at work so I am a little tired. Though I am absolutely loving having a kitty again to curl up beside me when I’m reading or watching TV.
This week I finished Blood for Blood by Ryan Graudin. It was as wonderful as I’d hoped. The ending in particular was beautiful. I’m really hoping we get a few more short stories in this world. Expect a full review soon
My library hold of Naomi Novik’s League of Dragons came through, so that is my current read/listen. This is the last in the Temeraire series which is based on the Napoleonic Wars but with dragons. I listened to and loved the first – it’s narrated by Simon Vance! – but I was uncertain about committing to a nine-book series. So I cheated and read Tor.com’s Temeraire reread for the intervening books. The series is definitely well worth checking out.
I’m also hoping to make a start on The Poisoned Blade, the second in Kate Elliott’s Court of Fives series, the ARC of which I picked up at BEA.
In a couple of weeks my husband and I are heading off on a trip to visit his family in Michigan. We are travelling by train this time – our awesome trans Canada trip gave us a taste for it – so I will have a lot of time to listen and/or read on the train. I don’t know about you, but sometimes deciding what books to download is as tricky as packing clothes!
That’s all for today. Have a good week!
