Monday's Beginnings (53)

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

How are you faring in reading at the beginning of this week? Are you starting an new book or finishing one up?

Well, another crazy weekend.  We had to get some friend visiting in, as the kid mentioned it was the last weekend before school. :) So we did.  Time is starting to get crunched here with the many things we are trying to get done here at our home.  But, I still squeeze all the reading in I can get. :)  I might be a little quite with commenting on the blogs for a short time here, but I will keep posting here and try to stop in to say hi to you all from time to time.  I will really try to be around as much as I can.  We have a lot going on here at home.  All good, but a lot. So please bare with me.

I did get some reading in though... I went out on release day and bought my copy of Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins.  And just had to dig in this weekend to know what happens.  I just finished it today!  I am working on From a Far Land by G. David Walker, and enjoying this fantasy read.

I did get Antiphon by Ken Scholes done last week.  I am going to get the review done here this week.  And I am hoping to get Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins reviewed this week as well.  I did get the review for As Lies the Dead by Kelly Meding up, CLICK HERE to read the review.

Now to the Wishlist...Thanks to you all I have added 7 more books.  And these all sound like amazing reads.  This list is one in which I try to keep only to the books I REALLY want to and plan to read.  All these amazing authors should be so proud and happy of all these amazing books.

Robyn from The Bookoholic Zone and I have posted this past week the book we will be reading next for the Urban Fantasy Blog Book Club.  The book is Blue Diablo by Ann Aguirre.  If you would like to read more details on the schedule (discussion starts September 2, 2010) CLICK HERE.

Books Received Last Week:

For Review:
Synopsis from Goodreads:
PEOPLE OF THE SWORD combines myth, history, and conquest with music, sorcery and a touch of romance to impart the struggles of two vastly different cultures suddenly dependent on one another for survival. Confronted by a common enemy, the wizard Crarnock, the druids and knights of Tropal realize that only through cooperation can they defeat Crarnock's goblin army. The journey will test the resolve of both peoples as they realize that their collective bias and misunderstandings are as much a threat as Crarnock himself. For readers interested in history, mythology, culture change, and classic struggles between Good and Evil, PEOPLE OF THE SWORD is for you.

Which I read this one over the weekend, so I am hoping to have a review up for it later this week.

GoodReads Synopsis:
Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen has survived the Hunger Games twice. But now that she’s made it out of the bloody arena alive, she’s still not safe. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge. Who do they think should pay for the unrest? Katniss. And what’s worse, President Snow has made it clear that no one else is safe either. Not Katniss’s family, not her friends, not the people of District 12. Powerful and haunting, this thrilling final installment of Suzanne Collins’s groundbreaking The Hunger Games trilogy promises to be one of the most talked about books of the year.

So, how are you faring this week?  Does it look like a good reading week?

Here's to you having a great week in words and pages.
