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!
