It's Monday! What are you Reading? October 17, 2011

This meme starts at Book Journey!
What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.

I had another pretty good reading week - I finished five books.   I posted three reviews, two with giveaways. I was hoping to post a fourth review but that didn't happen. I added a Flash Giveaway this week along with the usual regular Friday Pick Giveaway; Saturday Sharing Beyond Books, and Sunday posts.

I did get to visit a few blogs last week to say "Hi."
These were last week's posts plus Winner posts not listed.

Finished Reading:

Summons: A Goblin King Prequel
by Shona Husk
This is a prequel to A Goblin King and I do recommend you read it. It sets the background for the main book.
Product Description:
Every fairy tale has to have some basis in fact, right? That's what Eliza thought as she made a desperate plea to the legendary Goblin King. If he could grant her wish, she'd finally be safe. He would protect her. But what would he ask in return...?
Enjoy this short free prequel and a sneak peek of The Goblin King, the first of a highly imaginative new paranormal series by Shona Husk.

Currently reading:

by James Patterson and Richard DiLallo
This is delightful.
I will post the review Wednesday, October 19.
Reading for Little Brown & Company, a division of Hachette.
Product Description:
The tree is decorated, the cookies are baked, and the packages are wrapped, but the biggest celebration this Christmas is Gaby Summerhill's wedding. Since her husband died three years ago, Gaby's four children have drifted apart, each consumed by the turbulence of their own lives. They haven't celebrated Christmas together since their father's death, but when Gaby announces that she's getting married--and that the groom will remain a secret until the wedding day--she may finally be able to bring them home for the holidays.

But the wedding isn't Gaby's only surprise--she has one more gift for her children, and it could change all their lives forever. With deeply affecting characters and the emotional twists of a James Patterson thriller, The Christmas Wedding is a fresh look at family and the magic of the season.
This is quite interesting.
I am reviewing this for Audiobook Jukebox and Iambik Audiobooks
Product  Description:
Jumping back in time used to be fun... until people started dying. In the year 2050, London is on the verge of destruction. A thrill-seeker calling himself Sniper is about to jump back in time to create a time paradox. It's called timesplashing. It is exciting, dangerous, and the people who do it love every moment. Best of all, it doesn't change a thing - except in the present. When the acausal backwash from the splash hits the present, all hell breaks loose. Make a big enough timesplash, far enough back, and it can devastate a whole city. Once, timesplashing was an extreme sport and an excuse for a big party. Then Sniper took it too far. People started dying. Sandra and Jay are two people whose lives were shattered in a timesplash that went badly wrong in 2047. Now, each in their own way, they are hunting the timesplashers. And if they don't find them, millions could die.

The Rose Garden
by Susanna Kearsley
Set on the Cornish Coast and blending present to past.
I'm looking forward to another Kearsley read.
Reading for Sourcebooks.
Product Description:
Acclaimed author Susanna Kearsley's previous works have won the RT Book Reviews Reviewers Choice Award, and finaled for both the UK Romantic Novel of the Year and the RITA awards. Eva Ward is a modern woman thrown back three centuries to 1715 only to find that might be exactly where she belongs. There she finds true love with Daniel Butler, but the discord surrounding Hanoverian King George plunges the lovers into a world of intrigue, treason, and love.
I am pretty sure I will start one more book this week but I haven't decided which yet.
