So, to top everything else off, I've been fighting off a cold for the better part of a month now, which finally took it's final toll and sent me to the doctor. On that note, I can't believe I'm already 7 reviews behind! I don't think I've ever been this far behind before, but I've barely had the energy to read, let alone write about what I've been reading.
But, having said that, I can at least tell you what I've read these last couple of weeks:
Skellig by David Almond
Pibgorn: the Girl in the Coffee Cup by Brooke McEldowney
Pibgorn and the Poltergeist in the Piano by Brooke McEldowney
Pibgorn and the Cantus Borgia by Brooke McEldowney
Grandville by Bryan Talbot
Doctor Grordbort Presents: Victory by Greg Broadmore
Boneshaker by Cherie Priest
I've also received two packages in the mail in the last 2 weeks with sample books from HarperCollins. In these packages I've received:
Little Princes: One Man's Promise to Bring Home the Lost Children of Nepal by Conor Grennan
Sometimes I Feel Like a Nut: Essays and Observations by Jill Kargman
Call Me Irresistible: A Novel by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
A Lonely Death: An Inspector Ian Rutledge Mystery by Charles Todd
To Have and to Kill: A Wedding Cake Mystery by Mark Jane Clark
Family Affair by Debbie Macomber
While these books are probably ones that I wouldn't have picked up on my own, I'm always on the lookout for new authors, and these are all new to me, so I'm pretty excited about reading them all. Thank you, HarperCollins!
I simply want to read.
I'll more than likely occasionally post on here what I've been reading, and if there is something that really blows my mind, I'll probably have more to say about it and may write up a proper post, but for right now, things are going to be very quiet around here.
As always, happy reading!
2017 editI will continue to blog according to my health and ability, and connecting my posts thru Goodreads, so please be patient if things get quiet around here again this year. 2017 edit #2I am happy to report that my bone marrow transplant was a success and that I'm feeling more like myself everyday. That said, I'm going to try to start blogging a little more frequently, but please bear with me as I still continue to recover.
