Hello everyone! I hope that this first week of March was good! We got some beautiful days, warm and sunny and it was beautiful! Obviously this weekend I am at home and it’s raining. Oh well… Anyway, I read quite a lot this week, so let’s start with the recap!
What am I reading?
Parsnips, Buttered is a funny book and it was exactly what I was expecting. I am taking it slow, reading a chapter here and there, but I am quite satisfied with it. And I am reading Miss Bennet’s Dragon. This wasn’t on my TBR, and it wasn’t on my radar even, until I have discovered it on NetGalley and I just had to request it. And, as you can guess, I got approved! More Mr. Darcy and dragons?? How could I have resisted?? And you know what? So far I am loving it!! It is really hard to put down, and if thigns go well I would finish it this evening… ah, the bliss of looking forward to a day of reading!
What have I read?
This week I was a really good bookworm and followed my TBR. Yay! UNSUB was a really captivating reading. It is not perfect and there were a couple of things that didn’t sit so well with me, but it was gripping and I couldn’t stop reading! I wrote a review, but since a good chunk of it is spoilery because it was necessary to talk about what went wrong for me, I have published it only on Goodreads, were it is far more easier to hide the spoiler part. To Nurture and Kill was an interesting reading, we get to know a character, who is really interesting. It is a fast reading, and it is a sort of appetizer, so now I need more! Spirit Rising was another fast reading, and I enjoyed it so much! It is fast, funny and it has some interesting (and original) characters! The only book that wasn’t on my TBR is Gridlinked, but I have started it in February so that’s okay. The world-building is complex and seriously sci-fi so it was a bit hard to me to not feel out of my element sometimes, but it was a good book nonetheless and I would continue this series. There were some interesting characters, even if my favorite was a psycho Droid… I don’t know it says about me, but the book was good!
What Would I read?
This week I may have requested some new titles on NetGalley (and I was approved! I am so so happy!! *insert happy dance here*) and I received a couple of books to review from other sources so… Yeah, I have to try and read them too. So I hope to get a couple of titles off my TBR before starting with the new books, and I really hope that the books would be those two!
Blogging and Personal Life
The good weather helped me a lot this week. I had pretty long days at work, but I was less tired than usual, and that helped a lot with all the rest. To be honest I didn’t watch any TV shows and I didn’t crochet, sadly, but I did my house chores (even if I have “forgotten” to iron… Silly me!) and I spent a lot of time outside with Ade. And I have read a lot so… No regrets here!
On the blogging side I hope to write a couple of reviews, and there is a post that I wanted to share since the beginning of the year, about the authors that are on my radar but I have not written it yet, maybe this would be the right time!
And what about you? How was your week? And what have you read?? Let me know!
