Not too bad. Not too bad at all, even if six of the books were audiobooks with two of them only being an hour-long. I did return to work this month and with trying to reintegrate exercise into my week I’d still say this was a prosperous month of reading. Especially since I only DNF one book! The highlight of the month has been my venture into Star Trek fiction. So far it has gone over pretty well and I’ve enjoyed what I read. The book I DNF was a Trek book set in the Next Generation Universe so we will have to see if I can find something written by another author that works for me in that series. The TOS series, however, has been so much fun that I am going to seek out other adventures to read. Two books that are out of my typical reading taste one was an All Iowa Reads selection and the other a book I picked up at BEA, both highly enjoyable. Overall a good month of reading.
While I have had fun in the Star Trek universe I am going to take a bit of a break from Science Fiction. I am going to see if I can continue to get caught up in a few of the series I follow then I might be on the hunt for a new series to get lost in. I have a few books on my to-read bookcase that are nearly complete and I have been itching to find a new series to enjoy. Not that I don’t enjoy my current ones it is just that I want something new and exciting to read. Not sure quite what I’m in the mood for but I’m leaning towards urban fantasy with a smart mouth kick-ass heroine. Feel free to offer suggestions!
