Currently Reading & To Be Read

I was away over the weekend so there was no time to post anything.  I did manage to finish my previous 'Currently Reading' books and the reviews will be posted over the next couple of days.

So here is a quick post to let you all know what is next on the list.  From the very long list....


Currently Listening :

I just finished listening to the first book in the Fox & O'Hare series and have the third book to read and review.  So I decided to use one of my audible credits to get this second installment so I can catch up on the series and also be able to read and review 'The Job'.

My review for the 'The Heist' will be posted asap.  In a nutshell : I enjoyed it and wonder how the series will continue.  Therefore I am quite eager to continue with the books which made my decision to pick up this sequel all that more easier.

If you are a Stephanie Plum fan then this series may surprise you a little.  There is that Evanovich feel to the story but I think Goldberg had more of a hand in this one.


Currently Reading :


I read the Paper Magician a few weeks ago and this sequel has been awaiting for my attention ever since.  This is also a review book and one of those books that is stopping me from just reading whatever I want.  I need to catch up and this one is just the next on the list.

The Paper Magician was original and unusual but this sequel will definitely decide if I want to spend more time with the series.  It wasn't a bad debut but I won't be wasting my time reading something that isn't wowing me.  I have way too many other books to read and not enough time to waste.









The Dreaded 'To Be Read' Pile :

There are a few books on this list that are ARC's I need to read and review but because they don't release for another couple of months/weeks.

Anyone paying attention will notice that this list has gotten longer and most of the books from last time are still on here.  I am a naughty person and keep reading the new stuff and neglecting the old stuff!

Currently Reading & To Be Read

I am going to be away this weekend and I hope to get some reading done!  While waiting for planes and trains and then being on the planes and trains....hopefully I will get a couple of books read!

So expect a quiet few days but there should be some reviews coming next week!

Just so you know what is coming up.  Here is a currently reading and to be read update!


Currently Listening :

I really like Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series and I have been meaning to start this new series of hers for a while.  I got given the third book in the series to review and was shocked that it had already gotten that far and I hadn't even read the first installment!!

Audible to the rescue!!  I am listening to this one and I have to say it isn't what I expected.  I had read two novellas in the Fox & O'Hare series but this is the first full length story I have experiences.  It is actually turning out to be more serious that I expected.  It has had its funny and quirky moments so far but this is a nice thrilling read that is sometimes over the top but also very interesting.

I think I am about halfway through and I hope to finish this one pretty quickly.  Hopefully in time to start a new audio book next Monday.


Currently Reading :


I am completely off my game this year, review wise.  I always see that I have months to read a book before the release date and then suddenly the release date has come and gone!   This is the case in this third installment of the Tourist Trap Mysteries.

So far so good, I haven't gotten very deep into the story yet and only just got to the 'finding the body' part.  I am sure it will be just as good as the previous books and I am really looking forward to settling down with this one while on the plane.

127) Throttle by Stephen King & Joe Hill

The Blurb :

Inspired by Richard Matheson's classic "Duel," "Throttle," by Joe Hill and Stephen King, is a duel of a different kind, pitting a faceless trucker against a tribe of motorcycle outlaws in the simmering Nevada desert. Their battle is fought out on twenty miles of the most lonely road in the country, a place where the only thing worse than not knowing what you're up against, is slowing down . . .

My Thoughts :

A father and son project that was over before it really began.  Throttle is a short story that failed to interest me and I can't say that I liked it at all.  It was fast, furious and not at all what I was expecting from these two authors.

There isn't much else to say about this one.  It was a quick read and I failed to enjoy it but I am sure other readers may find this one exciting.
