The Reading List

ebook and books II

 

This month, I’m reading:

1. The Creation of Anne Boleyn – Fascinating. Not my favourite Anne Boleyn book, but I enjoyed parts of it.  What I didn’t care for is how the book seemed to be an endless complaint about other Tudor historical authors.  It got to be a bit annoying and turned me off of the book.

2. Make Mine a Ranger – sexy military men? What can I say, my weakness.  Great book, might have to read the others in the series.

3. Cotswolds Memoir – I added this one because I’m going to be working on Judy & Carl at some point, and I think that’s where they’re going to go.

4. Edward III: The Perfect King – (To be read)

5.  Frugal and Delicious – Interesting, but…not sure how much of it I’d actually use.

6. An Inconvenient Ward – I’m a sucker for a good Regency romance.

7. Seal The Deal (To be read)

8. The Stolen Crown – I wanted to enjoy this, I really did. But the first person POV just…felt really awkward.

9. A Love Most Dangerous –  (To be read)


Last Month’s List:

1. Perseverance (Finished)

2. The Everything Zen Book (Still Reading – there was no way I was reading this in a month lol.)

3. Waking Up Catholic (Finished)

4. Sweating Sickness in a Nutshell (Finished)

5. To Marry an English Lord (Finished)

6. The Fiction Writer’s Book of Checklists (Finished)

7. The Yuletide Countess (Finished)

8. Kitchen Confidential (DNF)

9. Katherine (Finished)

 

The Reading List.

ebook and books II

So I have Kindle Unlimited at the moment, to make it worth it.  I need to read at least nine books a month, otherwise there really isn’t much point in having the account.

This month, I’m reading:

1. Perseverance

I’ve finished this one already.  It’s an interesting look into Anne Boleyn.  (I’m a huge Tudor nerd).

2. The Everything Zen Book

Slowly making my way through this.

3. Waking Up Catholic

Finished this one as well. I enjoy reading books on religions.  I tend to read a little bit of everything.  It was well written and I did learn a number of things I never knew about Catholicism.

4. Sweating Sickness in a Nutshell

Finished this one.  It was a fascinating look at an epidemic that went through England in the 1400s – 1500s, then disappeared.  Have I mentioned I’m a history nerd?

5. To Marry an English Lord

6. The Fiction Writer’s Book of Checklists

7. The Yuletide Countess

8.  Kitchen Confidential

I love Anthony Bourdain–in small doses.  I enjoy his shows quite a bit–in small doses.  His book is not small doses.  I couldn’t make it through it. 

9. TBD

Interview with the Sassy Southern Book Blog

BookBloggerInterviews

1. What trope do you wish authors would run far, far away from?  At this time I love most book genres. I know most people think that the 50 Shades type books have been wrote to death but I love them.

2. The one book you’ll re-read over and over and over: It would have to be The Consequences Series By Aleatha Romig. I know it’s more than one book but I love this whole series.

3.  If you could rewrite one book to change one part of it, which book would you choose and what would you change?  I really can’t think of one that I have read that I would change anything about.

4. Do you have a favorite place to read? I love bundling up under my blanket in the corner of my couch to read.

5. Tell us a little bit about why you started book blogging: I started my blog because I love books. The thought of being able to help promote the books and the wonderful authors that write them seemed like something that would be a wonderful thing to do.

6. What’s the one thing you can’t live without?  My family. They support me in everything I do. When I sit in front of the computer for hours on end going through e-mails and working on my blog I know they are always around to chat with me or just hang out while I am working.

7. And finally a quick round of pick one:

Coffee or Tea: Tea

Sweet or Salty: Sweet

Chocolate or Vanilla:  Chocolate

Hot or Cold: Cold

Laptop or PC: Laptop

Paperback or Ebook: Ebook
