It's Monday - Zombie Contest

And now, once again we are at a Monday. Specifically it's time for It's Monday, What Are You Reading? Hosted by Sheila from Book Journey, it's time once more to post info about what we've been reading, what we're planning to read - etc.

This week was another week where no single book was finished. I did begin reading a few books though. There are some good ones, too. One of them I had to wait far too long for. I hate when I go to buy a book on release say, and have to wait for a whole week before I get it. Unfortunately, in my city there is only one bookstore left that is open after 6 p.m. Can you believe that? This city is growing by leaps and bounds. There must be hundreds of restaurants, bars, etc. I know there are many big box stores here - but only one bookstore that stays open after six p.m. The other bookstore is an indie that closes by six, and a few used bookstores that close by five. Well - that's life.

The book I had to wait for way too long for is Fate's Edge by Ilona Andrews. Of course it's worth the wait - it's very interesting with some characters from previous novels in the Edge series. Wild magic and Evil Villains. Great mix.

One of the other books I've been reading is Saints Astray by Jacqueline Carey. I'm not sure if I like this one as much as Santa Olivia (the first), but it is interesting - I'm at the beginning, and switching back and forth between a few books. I need to just focus on this one by itself, I think. It's written just as well as the other, just different situations the characters are in.

There is also Shady Lady by Anne Aguirre. The third of the Corinne Solomon series, it's interesting in it's own way - although one of the characters has suddenly changed into something completely different from before. Not necessarily a bad thing - just different.

I meant to start Threshold by Devin O'Branagan this weekend. Have my copy all ready to go....and can't find it. I looked in my work bag, in my bedroom, in my living room. It's no where. Not even in the trunk of my car. The only thing I can think of is that I did bring it to work, I remember setting it on my desk....I think someone might have borrowed it. I'll find out tomorrow. I hope it turns up soon, because i wanted to read it.
