Hello!

I don’t seem to have stopped so far this week and today I am back teaching at school so I will most likely be an exhausted puddle on the floor by the end of the day.

What I am Currently Reading

SPQR is currently on the back burner at the moment but I am still reading a few pages occasionally. The King’s Seal is by destress read and I must admit I am finding it hard to put down.

What I have Recently Finished Reading

I have just recently finished this and although I did struggle with a few sections I have definitely got the bug back and will be reading more books from The Vampire Chronicles soon. Review

What I Think I will Read Next

So many books to choose from. My dissertation will be finished soon and that will mean lots of binge reading.

Please drop me a comment if you want to chat about books and please leave your WWW Wednesday and I will pop over for a visit.

Happy Reading

Hello!

I hope everyone has had a good week so far.

I have been enjoying reading this week and I must admit as much as I am enjoying my dissertation I am looking forward to finishing it so I can binge read some fiction.

What I am Currently Reading

I have just started SPQR, I really enjoy Mary Beard’s writing, she is so informative but also fun to read. Prince Lestat continues and will be finished soon.

What I have Recently Finished Reading

I have just finished this and really enjoyed it. A great book to dip into.

What I Think I will Read Next

Usually I have many options as I am never sure what I will read next. This time though I know I will be reading this one because I have been desperate to read it.

Goodreads Monday: 13/09/2021

Goodreads Monday is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners.  All you have to do is show off a book from your TBR that you’re looking forward to reading.

Hello!

Happy Monday! I hope everyone has had a good start to the week so far.

The book I have chosen to feature this week is one that I have recently ordered. I have read the previous books in the series and absolutely loved them so I am hoping the third instalment does not disappoint.

The search for the legendary ring of King Solomon has begun, and Penelope must sift through its long and convoluted history of lost emperors, crusaders, and other famous historical figures—including one with whom the magicians share their own complicated past— if she hopes to find it in time.

As Penelope’s magic continues to grow stronger with the coming high tide, she and Alexis will have to depend upon each other more than ever to keep everyone they care about safe from the continuing attacks by Thevetat’s priests.

When the magical high tide finally peaks, the long-awaited battle against Thevetat will begin, and Penelope, Alexis, and the magicians will have to rely on both powers of old and new if they hope to defeat their enemy once and for all.

Hopefully the book arrives soon as I really want this to be my next read.

Please drop me a comment if you have taken part in Goodreads Monday and I will head over for a visit.

Hello!

I hope everyone is having a good week so far. I have been busy teaching and dissertation writing but thankfully I have also managed a bit of reading as well.

What I am Currently Reading

I am slowly getting into reading Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis as it has been a long time since I read a book by Anne Rice.

What I have Recently Finished Reading

This was a good read and one that I could not put down. I can’t wait to read the next in the series.

What I Think I will Read Next

I’m planning on still reading hardbacks for another month so most likely it will be one of these.

Goodreads Monday: 6/09/2021

Goodreads Monday is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners.  All you have to do is show off a book from your TBR that you’re looking forward to reading.

Hello!

I hope everyone has had a good start to the week so far. I have so many books lined up to read at the moment there is no way I will get them all read before the end of the year so I think the list will have to go into next year as well.

One of these books is the one I have chosen for today.

I am returning to The Vampire Chronicles series by Anne Rice as I read a lot of them when I was a teenager but have not read the last two. I really enjoyed this series so I am hoping I will continue to enjoy it.

In this spellbinding novel, Lestat, rebel outlaw, addresses the tribe of vampires, directly, intimately, passionately, and tells the riveting story of the formation of the Blood Communion and how he became Prince of the vampire world, the true ruler of this vast force, and how his vision for all the Children of the Universe to thrive as one, came to be.
    

The tale spills from Lestat’s heart, as he speaks first of his new existence as reigning monarch–and then of his fierce battle of wits and words with the mysterious Rhoshamandes, proud Child of the Millennia, reviled outcast for his senseless slaughter of the legendary ancient vampire Maharet, forever wise and loving and twin to Mekare the Keeper of the Sacred Core; Rhoshamandes, a force who refuses to live in harmony at the Court of Prince Lestat and threatens all that Lestat has dreamt of.
    

As the tale unfolds, Lestat takes us from the towers and battlements of his ancestral castle in the snow-covered mountains of France to the verdant wilds of lush Louisiana with its lingering fragrances of magnolias and night jasmine; from the far reaches of the Pacific’s untouched islands to the 18th-century city of St. Petersburg and the court of the Empress Catherine . . . 

Hopefully, I will get to read this soon as I have just started Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis and I am really enjoying it so far.

Please drop me a comment if you have read this book as I would love to hear your thoughts. Also please drop me a comment with your link to your Goodreads Monday and I will head over for a visit.

Hello!

Sorry for been a bit quiet on here recently, I will be honest I have been using my spare time doing a cross stitch instead of reading.

Anyway, I am still doing a bit of reading and here is what I have been up to.

What I am Currently Reading

It took me a while to get into The Familiars as it didn’t hook me in like Mrs England but I am starting to enjoy it now. I am still dipping into The Book Lover’s Bucket List and my list of places I want to visit is growing and growing. Death of Darkness is addictive and I imagine I will be finishing it very soon.

What I have Recently Finished Reading

I struggled to get into this initially but I am glad I didn’t give up as it did improve. Here is my review.

What I Think I will Read Next

I am still sticking with my reading of hardback books at the moment so it will most likely be one of these.

Hello!

I hope everyone is having a good week so far. I am enjoying my week off so far and have loved meeting friends that I haven’t seen since before covid.

My reading has gone a bit crazy this week, usually I am a one book at a time person but currently I have three books going, which is most unlike me.

Here is my WWW Wednesday!

What I am Currently Reading

The Book Lover’s Bucket List is my dip in book and I absolutely love it. I am building a lovely little list of all the places I desperately want to visit. I am still plodding on with Sistersong and although it isn’t blowing my socks off I am enjoying it but I do find my attention wavering when reading it. I started Death of Darkness over the weekend and I am thoroughly enjoying it and I am wondering why I have put off reading it for so long. Death of Darkness is a kindle book though, so I have slightly deviated from my plan of only reading hardback books this month.

What I have Recently Finished Reading

I spent a lovely afternoon yesterday reading books with my best friends son and these were my two favourites. Due to a busy week dissertation writing these are the only books I have finished this week.

What I Think I will Read Next

I am still only trying to read hardbacks this month and I might continue next month as well because I do have a lot of hardback books to read.

There is my week.

Goodreads Monday is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners.  All you have to do is show off a book from your TBR that you’re looking forward to reading.

Happy Monday!

I hope everyone has had a good start to the week. I am taking a week off teaching this week, so today I have done three hours of dissertation writing, some fun reading, a nice walk and baked some cookies. A very relaxing day.

I am sticking with my classics theme and hopefully I will have built up a nice list of classic books to start reading once the dissertation is all finished and handed in.

Thrown in prison for a crime he has not committed, Edmond Dantes is confined to the grim fortress of If. There he learns of a great hoard of treasure hidden on the Isle of Monte Cristo and he becomes determined not only to escape, but also to unearth the treasure and use it to plot the destruction of the three men responsible for his incarceration. Dumas’ epic tale of suffering and retribution, inspired by a real-life case of wrongful imprisonment, was a huge popular success when it was first serialized in the 1840s.

One of my all time favourite books is The Three Musketeers and I have read it more than once so I really want to read The Count of Monte Cristo to see if it is just as good. I know it will take me a long time to read but I do like reading longer books.

Please drop me a comment if you have read this book, I would love to hear your thoughts. Also please drop me a link to your Goodreads Monday and I will head over for a visit.

Happy Reading.

Hello!

I hope everyone is having a good week so far.

So here is how my week has been going.

What I am Currently Reading

I’ve just started reading Sistersong and I must admit I am struggling to get into it at the moment but I will keep going.

What I have Recently Finished Reading

I really did not get on well with The Man in the Brown Suit (review) and to be honest it almost put me into a reading slump. Thankfully, Mrs England (review) was amazing and got me out of the reading slump.

What I Think I will Read Next

This month I am only reading hardback books so that will limit my selection and hopefully help me to choose what to read next.
