It's Monday! What Are You Reading? December 9, 2012

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 finished four books but only got two reviews posted because of traveling.  I posted two book giveaways and a Bookblast Giveaway. I posted the regular Friday Pick Giveaway, Saturday Snapshot, and Sunday Words.

I didn't get to visit hardly at all last week and will have little internet time again this week as I am on a cruise in Hawaii! So I hope everyone will understand my absence.
Thanks again to all the nice people who visit me, especially when I don't get to visit back.

These were last week's posts:
  • Book Review and Giveaway: Love Endures Forever by Beth Wiseman; Christian Inspirational Romance; my rating 4.75. Ends 12/15.
    Finished Reading:

    First Time: The Legend of Garison Fitch
    by Samuel Ben White
    This is very interesting!
    Review to post 12/11 as part of BookBlast Tour.

    Book Description
    Publication Date: July 22, 2008
    "What if history didn't happen that way ... the first time?"
    Garison Fitch was one of the most revered scientists in the Soviet Americas until he left fame behind to work on a secret project in his log cabin in the mountains of Marx.
    But something went wrong. Instead of traveling interdimentionally, Garison has traveled through time ... twice.
    Now, he's in something called "The United States of America" and a woman he's never met before is calling herself his wife. It it a hoax? Or, has he somehow changed history?
    If so, can he return the world to what he believes is "normal", or must he live in this strange world he created?

    Line Edits: I am working on formats a bit this week with hopes to release two next week.

    In Bed With the Opposition
    by Stephanie Draven
    I am enjoying this fun conflict.
    Review and Giveaway to post  12/12.
    Book Description
    Publication Date: August 22, 2012
    Armed with a sassy haircut, a sharp wit, and a personal list of rules for all life's exigencies, Grace Santiago has everything under control. At least until Ethan Castle walks back into her life. Grace hasn't forgotten their disastrous affair in law school, but she can't resist his bad boy charm.

    When Grace learns that Ethan has been hired by the other side, her loyalties—and her heart—are torn in two. Though their sexual chemistry can't be denied, they find themselves deadlocked. Ethan believes that all is fair in love and war, but he won't give up the fight—not even to win Grace's heart. So what can a good girl like Grace do, but learn to play dirty?

    Pretty Near Perfect by Jolene Perry
    The last thing Norah needs is to be attracted to anyone – especially in her deceased fiancĂ©'s parents' home. Collin’s starting a new career, and has no business getting involved – especially while staying with his roommate’s family, who very kindly offered to take him in for the holidays. Unfortunately, you just don’t always pick the most convenient time and place to fall for someone.

    Six Days of Christmas by Kaylee Baldwin
    When Natalie goes home with her best friend for Christmas, she expects plenty of quiet time to work on a winning ad so she can turn her dream internship into her dream job. Instead, she gets time-consuming Christmas festivities, a house full of children, and Jimmy, her best friend’s brother - someone who makes her question everything she’s always thought she wanted.

    Twist of Fate by Rachael Anderson
    When a postcard meant for Kenzie winds up in Ty's mailbox, Ty's faced with a decision. Should he tell her that her fiancĂ© is breaking up with her and let it ruin her favorite holiday, or should he do what he’s wanted to do since he met her - make a move and hope that he can win her over before she discovers there won’t be a wedding after all?

    3. Audio MP3

    by Scott Reeves
        by Scott Reeves
        Narrated by Martin Scott
    This went on hold to finish review titles for this week.

    I am about an hour into this.
    There is conflict I am interested to follow.
    Reviewing for the author through Audiobook Jukebox.

    I hope to pick Godspeed: A Love Story up again by the end of the week.

    I am again listening to The Listener's Bible NIV read by Max McLean. [Reading and listening on my new MP3.]
    Instead of studying with the Tyndall One Year Bible this year I am studying with Through the Bible in One Year by Alan B. Stringfellow. It is a Study that I used for teaching back in around 1989 so I will enjoy it again. The reading this week is 1 John.

    Line Edits: I have three books that I am completing formats on this week.

    I have 15 books set for December with one done and two nearly completed. I hope to read some extra Christmas titles too.

    Reviews carried forward to post this in December.
