Weekly Reading Recap


It's only been a few days since my last weekly reading recap, since I didn't post last week's until Wednesday! Of course, I don't think I ever remembered to link up with that one. Whoops! So if you missed it, I basically read the three books I'm going to talk about reviewing below. I haven't managed to finish any new books since Wednesday but I did write a couple reviews.

I reviewed Blue Asylum by Kathy Hepinstall. It is a unique historical novel, and I am giving away a copy. So be sure to click the link to read my review and enter to win! The giveaway ends tonight.

I also reviewed Off the Grid by Mark Young, which is an international thriller.

I have just one more review to write at this point: The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson. Then I'll be caught up! I'm hoping to write that one tonight so I can count it for April. :-)

I was supposed to participate in the Spring Into Horror Read-a-Thon at Castle Macabre last week. I did read most of The Devil in the White City on the airplane home from Las Vegas last Tuesday, but otherwise, I honestly didn't read much, and never got a chance to visit the other participants. Hopefully I can join in another read-a-thon soon and actually participate fully!! Anyone know of a read-a-thon going on next weekend? I actually might have some time to read then.

Currently Reading
I'm now reading In My Father's Country, a memoir by Saima Wahab. I'll be posting my review for that book tour on Wednesday, so I really need to finish this one!

Up Next
After that, I'll be reading Darkroom by Joshua Graham. My review for that tour is due to be up next Wednesday.

What are you reading this week? This meme is being hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, so hop over there if you'd like to see what others are reading too.

  1. Looking at everyone's books this week I wish I would have signed up for the Color Reading Challenge. I never noticed how much color there is in the titles of books. Maybe next year but I am adding the 2 from your post to my reminder list.

    Have a great week!

    1. That's so funny! I didn't even notice all the colors in my book titles. I guess I should have signed up for that challenge too!

  3. I really enjoyed Devil In The White City! I hope you did too. It made for a wonderful book discussion as well as all the inventions of the World Fair was so interesting!

  4. I loved Devil in the White City and so did my husband - hope you enjoyed it, too - looking forward to your review.

    I am in the same boat as you - squeezing in some reading time but way behind in reviews!

    And I don't see how anyone can do a read-a-thon with kids in the house!! lol

    Enjoy your books this week -

    1. See, I sign up for readathons occasionally, but I'm never very successful with them! I really enjoyed Devil in the White City. Obviously I didn't manage to review it last night, though. Hopefully this week (I have another review to write tonight).

  5. I really enjoyed Devil in the White City. Larson has a newish book about Berlin in the 1930s.

    1. I may have to check into that book as well. I really liked his writing style.
