It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? (9/8/2014) #IMWAYR

  
Hosted by: Sheila @ Book Journey

To participate go here.

Not much new is going on.  Work and sleep (I guess... I think I haven't been getting enough).  I participated in my first 5K (walking) for a charity with my sister.  That was fun.  My dad went back in the hospital to have his medicine adjusted over the weekend, but he's back home now.  Anyway,

I finished listening to The Beautiful Mystery by Louise Penny; Read by Ralph Cosham.  My post about it can be found here.
I finished The Cure for Dreaming by Cat Winters.  This is the advance reader's copy for the YA book due out this Oct. 2014.  My post can be found here.  Please stop by.  I'm offering a giveaway for the ARC on the same post...
I had already been listening to the downloadable version of The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith; Read by Robert Glenister when it expired.  I had the print version in my hands after that, but I couldn't just read it.  I needed to listen to it by that point.  Now that I've finished The Beautiful Mystery I've started back up on this.  I haven't yet found where I left off last, so I guess I'm refreshing my memory.

I'm currently reading Gates of Thread and Stone by Lori M. Lee.  Don't you just love the cover?  It sounded interesting when I saw it in one of the professional journals, so I asked the local library to purchase it.  So far, so good.
I've started Murder in the Mystery Suite by Ellery Adams.  It was overdue and I needed to return it unfinished.  I have it back, so once I've finished Gates of Thread and Stone I'll get back into this one.
I still haven't started it yet, but the September (work) book club choice is Call the Midwife: A Memoir of Birth, Joy, and Hard Times by Jennifer Worth.  It sounds interesting, so I hope all goes well.








I had several great books come in from the library.  I hope I have time to read them soon...

    1. I've enjoyed the Louise Penny series far. They are the kind of books where you really get to know the characters.

      Murder in a Mystery Suite developed a nice twist just before I returned it so I'm looking forward to completing to it.
