Simply Marvelous Monday (22)

Shelia at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books, gets all the credit for this one...

On Simply Marvelous Monday's here at Debbie's Book Bag, we want to know... What are you reading???


This Fine Life by Eva Everson (For review from Revell)
Life, In Spite of Me: Extraordinary Hope After a Fatal Choice by Kristin Jane Anderson (For review from Waterbrook Multnomah)
The Brothers of Gwynedd, Pt. 1: Sunrise in the West by Edith Pargeter (For review from Sourcebooks) (Part of the Sourcebooks Summer Reading Club)
Brighid's Quest (Partholon series - Book 2) by P.C. Cast (For review from Harlequin Teen)
Zan-Gah: A Prehistoric Adventure (Zan-Gah series - Book 1) by Allan Richard Shickman (For review from Earthshaker Books)

I had a good reading week and felt like a accomplished quite a bit. Updating you my progress with the e-book and audio book. I finished Brighid's Quest and I'll get to start a new e-book this week. My audio book is The Chase (Isaac Bell series - Book 1) by Clive Cussler and I made some progress on that this week. I am now on chapter 15, so I'm moving right along on that one as well. I'm looking forward to posting my first review from, The Brothers of Gwynedd and I really enjoyed Brighid's Quest, my first book by P.C. Cast.

I'm usually always reading a print book, an e-book and listening to an audio book. But, just because I start one this week, doesn't mean I'll finish it. However, I will keep you up to date on my progress. Audio books are usually just for pleasure for me, so they take a backseat to books I have for review. My goal is to finish at least two books a week.


What Happened to My Life?: Finding New Passion, Purpose and Joy by Danna Demetre (For review from Revell)
The Last Christian by David Gregory (For review from Waterbrook Multnomah)
The Wolf Next Door (The Westfield Wolves series - Book 3) by Lydia Dare (For review from Sourcebooks)
The Chase (Isaac Bell series - Book 1) by Clive Cussler (Audio book from the Library)
The Accidental Spy by J.R. Lindermuth (E-book for reivew from the author)
Zan-Gah and the Beautiful Country (Zan-Gah series - Book 2) by Allan Richard Shickman (For review from Earthshaker Books)

I know, I know that looks like a really auspicious list... but The Chase, is just for pleasure and I doubt I will finish it this week, maybe next. Zan-Gah is not very long and I'm almost done with it now. The Accidental Spy doesn't have a time limit on when the review posts, so I'm Okay there. The top three are ones I need to definitely finish this week. We'll see how it goes!


The Gamble (The Loss of Certainty series - Book 2) by T.P. Jones (For review from Phenix & Phenix Publicity)

I usually choose only one up next selection as I never really know which one I'll read next!

Wow yes you did have a great reading week. With summer coming up, I hope to get a bit more read myself.

Crystal (I totally paused!) said...

What a great week, and your upcoming plans sound great too!

This is mine:

I am like you - what I start does not always get finished within the week. Sometimes it can be two or three weeks to get through a long audio or large book with the other reviews I am doing as well.

Looks like you had a super week!

Jennifer said...

Great week! I will be reading Life, In Spite of Me and I am finishing up part one of The Brothers of Gwynedd. Have a lovely week reading. My Monday:

Mystica said...

You have had a great week. Mine was exceptionally good too and I even did all the reviews! I have two very good books with me right now The Weight of Heaven by Thrity Umrigar and In the Shadow of Lady Jane by Edward Charles - two different genres whichis the way I like the reading to go!

Happy Monday. 'The Wolf Next Door' sounds like a great read. :)


Steph said...

You had a prolific reading week! I love the title The Wolf Next Door.

Kristen said...

I've only heard of a few of these, but they all sound interesting! Enjoy your reading this week! :)

Kathy Martin said...

I keep meaning to get to Brighid's Quest. I have so many books on my Kindle that I forget they are there if I don't see them on the first page. I hope you have a good week. Here is my Monday report: Inside of a Dog.

Joy said...

Great week planned! Have fun reading :)
