Simply Marvelous Monday (34)

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


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

FINISHED LAST WEEK:

Theater of Illusion (Spirit of the River series - Book 3) by Kathy Steffen (E-Arc for review from Medallion)
Emma and the Vampires by Wayne Josephson (For review from Sourcebooks)
Vanishing Act by Liz Johnson (For review from the author)
With One Eye Open by Polly Frost (For review from the author)
The Paris Vendetta (Cotton Malone series - Book 5) by Steve Berry (For review from Media Muscle)
Outlander (Outlander series - Book 1) by Diana Gabaldon (E-Book from the Library)

Well, I finally got to finish Outlander and I'll have to say it's one of the best books I've ever read. That's certainly saying a lot since I read around 6 or 7 a week at times. I loved everything about it. My review will post some time this week.

READING OR LISTENING TO THIS WEEK:

The Wolf of Tebron (The Gates of Heaven series - Book 1) by C.S. Lakin (For review from Phenix)
Drawn to the Land: The Romance of Farming by Elizabeth J. Cockey and Barton M. Cockey (For review from Phenix)
The Winner's Brain: 8 Strategies Great Minds Use to Achieve Success by Jeff Brown, Liz Neporent and Mark Fenske (For review from Phenix)
Third Times a Charm (Sister to Sister series - Book 3) by Virginia Smith (For review from Kathy Willis Communications)
Amish Proverbs: Words of Wisdom from the Simple Life by Suzanne Woods Fisher (For review from Revell)
Code 15 by Gary Birken (For review from Goldberg McDuffie)

Had to make a few changes to my plan for this week, due to publication dates being moved back. Amish Proverbs is a beautiful little gift book that I can't wait to share with you. I have a copy for giveaway. I'm looking forward to Third Times a Charm and The Wolf of Tebron as well. Drawn to the Land has some exquisite art in it and The Winner's Brain is just one of those books that you think, hmmmm... I need to read that.

UP NEXT:

Seduced by The Wolf (Heart of the Wolf series - Book 5) by Terry Spear (For review from Sourcebooks)
The Brothers of Gwynedd, Pt. 4: Afterglow and Nightfall by Edith Pargeter (For review from Sourcebooks)
Hero (The Cat Star Chronicles - Book 6) by Cheryl Brooks (For review from Sourcebooks)
The Truth About Lord Stoneville (Hellions of Halstead Hall series - Book 1) by Sabrina Jefferies (For review from the Author)

There will be a couple of giveaways, guest posts and interviews coming up on this particular week, so I left it a little sparing on the amount of books I'll try.

I bowed out of reviewing Emma and the Vampires. I tried, I just do not like vampires, I know, I am odd. The Brothers of Gwynedd was brilliant. Have a fabulous week reading. I look forward to your reviews. My Monday is here: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/08/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-8.html
