This Wednesday I’m reading…

A Visit from the Goon Squad Vampire's Faith (Dark Protectors, #8) Souls on Earth: Exploring Interplanetary Past Lives


A Visit from the Goon Squad:  This is my audiobook selection for the week and the next book we are reading for the book talk at work.  It was my responsibility to pick for June and July with the Summer Reading Program going on I thought it would be nice for the books to fit the theme which is Library’s Rock.  This was a bit challenging to work around given the books available through participating libraries with book sets.  The first title I selected was booked for the year so I went with number two.  I don’t know much about this one except that Goodreads tells me it is music related.  Finger’s crossed it is a good choice.  I have struck out with the two titles I have suggested so far…

Vampire’s Faith:  This is a review request book that requested through Goodreads.  I have only read one page so far so I could count it as having started for this post.  The series used to be finished but I guess the author has more adventures for this world.  I hope I haven’t forgotten too much.

Souls on Earth: Still plugging along.  I try to read a few pages each night before bed but I think that is the wrong strategy for NF.  After a page or two, the words start swimming on the page and I give up and go to sleep.  After a day of working in the garden, I just can’t concentrate on NF.  Maybe I need to read a few pages each morning before I get up as I tend to lounge in bed after taking my pills as I need to wait an hour before eating.  An hour each day and I should have this done in no time.

What I’m Reading Wednesday

Welcome to a new weekly blog feature here at Read What I Like.  So new that I’ve not made up a graphic for it yet and decided to just use my banner.  Since I’m putting in an effort to be more active on the blog and its new Instagram account I thought I would try this idea that just popped into my head out.

So what can you expect from this weekly post?  The title is pretty self-explanatory I’m just going to talk about what I’m currently reading each Wednesday.  Let you know my thoughts on the titles and how it’s going.  Not a full review but maybe why I picked that book and such.  Might be a good way to discuss some titles as I’m working on them and why I might DNF them.  So here we go!

This week I’m reading:

 The Curse of Tenth Grave (Charley Davidson, #10)  Souls on Earth: Exploring Interplanetary Past Lives  Quinn (Vampires in America, #12)

The Curse of Tenth Grave is part of my reread of the Charley Davidson series in audiobook format before the last book is released.  It’s going well.  I only have two more books after this one and both are available for borrow through my library.  The hold list is a mile long for book 12 but I have the better part of a year to wait for book 13 so I should be good.

Souls on Earth is a review book that comes out in August, I believe, so you will have to wait a while for the review.  It is a NF title on reincarnation one of the few non-fiction subjects I enjoy reading about.  It is going well so far, a bit slower with NF but I have lots of time.  I’m about half-way through the book and plan on finishing it.  I’ve read a book by this author before.

Quinn is book 12 in the Vampires in America series and another review book that releases on Friday.  I don’t think I will be finished by then but decided to put another read on hold so I could at least start it before it comes out officially.  I’ve only read 19 pages and I think I’ll enjoy it.  I wasn’t sure I wanted to continue this series because of the heavy gun violence but decided to give it one more chance.  This book takes us to Ireland and with my recently discovered Irish DNA I thought it might be a fun read.

How about you?  What are you reading this Wednesday?

Monday Morning Question: Cheating on books?


Good Monday morning everyone!  I hope you all had a good weekend full of plenty of hours spent between the pages.  Confession time, today’s topic is perhaps a little lame.  I am in the middle of a book and debated even writing a post this morning, but had to work on another post for the end of the week so figured I should put something out today too.  After all I haven’t posted a review in a few days, finished a book, but it needs to wait till Friday to go live.

This weekend I also brought home a new book, and promptly forgot about/left/stopped reading, my current book to dive into this one.  So this morning I ask you, will you stop reading one book in order to read something else?  Oh sure, we can always read two books at once, but as I have posted about before I don’t like to do that.  I read one story then start the next, only occasionally reading a non-fiction with what ever story I am reading.  I’m not a fan of switching worlds, makes it too hard to keep the rules straight, for example can vamps in this world go out in the sun or not kinda thing.  Anyway…I will apparently cheat on my current read with a book I like more.  Perhaps it is more like a priority level with my favorite authors and some will automatically get bumped to the top of the reading list whether I am done with my current read or not.  I felt a little guilty in starting my shiny new book, that I made a special trip to B&N to pick up and even paid FULL PRICE for in hardcover.  Quite honestly I thought I was going to finish it in a day, that is why I interrupted my other story, but the weather was lovely this weekend and we got the yard ready for winter, so it will end up being a two-day read.  Then I will be back to the story I set aside or cheated on with my new book, hopefully the characters won’t notice my absence.   Perhaps I’ll need to bring them flowers to make up for my infidelity.
