Monday's Beginnings (24)

So, here we are again.... Monday!

How are you faring in reading your books?  Are you starting a new book for the week or finishing one up?

It seems as this week is going to have a strange pass to it.  I have just recovered, mostly from a snow storm here where we got a little over 2 feet of snow, lost our power, and our hot water tank decided to call it quits.  Now, I have found our house computer has gone on strike as well.  I am not able to get it to turn on.  I will have to play around with the wires just to make sure they are all plugged in before I make any final decisions.  But that is for another night.

I just got back from the grocery store, as we were rather low on food here after being home bound for the last few days.  WOW! Let me tell you it was a zoo there!  We are now awaiting another snow storm to come through.  Yep, Tuesday it is to start and end Wednesday.  Yep, another 8-12 inches of snow on its way.  Now, were we are going to put these snow to come is the question?  I will wait and see what we are going to get.

Okay, now to my book things.  I have added 6 books to my list to get.  The amazing authors are going to be thanking you!  I have one book review to write up for you all, Inked.  And I am currently working on Hell's Belles by Jackie Kessler.  I am almost done with this book as well so a review should be up by the end of the week for it.

I received 2 books in the mail this past week, which I ordered.  They are Boneshaker By Cherie Priest and Greywalker by Kat Richardson.  I am looking forward to these books!

I will also be pulling the winner of my 50+ Followers contest shortly after I post this.  Good luck to you all!

So, how is your Monday going?  How are you faring with your books?


  1. I'm glad you came through the storm ok, the power outage would suck though.

    I'm working my way through a mystery right now and I have to get a review done for Houses of Stone by Barbara Michaels.

    I just signed up at goodreads so I'm slowly adding a few shelves at a time.

    Have a great week.

  2. Ryan - Hope you are enjoying your mystery. And look forward to the reviews. Are you liking Goodreads? I was thinking of signing in there as well as LibraryThing. Is Goodreads easy to find things? Have a great week!

  3. I think it's easier to find things on Goodreads as LibraryThing. Add me as a friend when you get there. :)

    I'm feeling better, but still not up to par, but I got a review done and I'm reading a great book called Spider's Bite which is so far very good.

    Hope you are feeling well too! Down will all bad sinuses!

  4. I hope everything is back in order, though you must have gotten a lot of reading done when you have that power outage :)
    I've actually been really missing snow lately, something I never thought would happen after all those winters spent trudging in the snow to school each day. But I miss the whole atmosphere and sledding and building snowmen and all that stuff.
    The weather here is depressingly sunny. sigh
    Well, I'll stop moping on your blog now.
    I hope you enjoy your books. I can't wait to hear about Boneshaker in particular.

  5. Melissa - I will have to take a look around Goodreads and see. I will definitely look you up there. Spider's Bite is on my list here, glad to hear you are enjoying it so far. I am looking forward to it. Glad to hear your feeling well. I am doing much better too. Thank goodness to good medicines. ;)

    Simcha - I finally got my reviews up and some reorganizing on my blog here last night. But didn't get to read anyone else's blog. I am going to have to work hard to get caught up. The snow is fun, and the kids love it. I would love to have my sun back though... It makes me happy when I can go outside in the warm weather. I am hoping to get to Boneshaker this month. We shall see how I do with my reading. I have heard so many great things on it I am really curious myself.

    Hope you both have a great week!
