It's Monday What are You Reading? April 14, 2014.

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 am so glad that the weather is warming up. I had a busy week and of course had to prepare taxes for filing. Reading has been enjoyable.   I got four reviews posted, one with Print giveaway and the usual memes. :-)

I did spend time early in the week visiting and intended to do more but didn't get to.
Thanks as always to all the nice people who visit me.

These were last week's posts:

Escaping Home: The Survivalist Series, Book 3
Written by: A. American
Narrated by: Duke Fontaine
This is a good addition to this series. I hope there will be more.
Publisher's Summary
When society ceases to exist, who can you trust?
After the collapse of the nation's power grid, America is under martial law - and safety is an illusion. As violence erupts around him, Morgan Carter faces one of his most difficult decisions yet: whether to stay and defend his home, or move to a more isolated area, away from the prying eyes of the government. He and his family are hesitant to leave their beloved Lake County, but with increasingly suspicious activities happening in a nearby refugee camp, all signs point towards defecting. Morgan and his friends aren't going to leave without a fight, though - and they'll do anything to protect their freedoms.
From the author of the hit survivalist novels Going Home and Surviving Home, Escaping Home describes the struggle to live in a world with no rules, and how, sometimes, the strength of family is the only thing that can pull you through.

The Undead Pool: The Hollows, Book 12
Written by: Kim Harrison
Narrated by: Marguerite Gavin
Rachel Morgan is a great character and I really enjoy listening to this series.
Publisher's Summary
Number-one New York Times best-selling author Kim Harrison returns to the supernatural adventures of Rachel Morgan in the penultimate book of the Hollows series.
Witch and day-walking demon Rachel Morgan knows magic - earth, ley line, even the forbidden demon magic - and that knowledge has saved her life more than once. But now something - or someone - is attacking Cincinnati and the Hollows, causing spells to backfire or go horribly wrong while living vampires attack humans and Inderlanders alike.
The pressures build when the city is quarantined to contain the unreliable magic, and Rachel must stop the attacks before the undead vampire masters who keep the rest of the undead under control are lost and it becomes all-out supernatural war.
The only way to do so is through the ancient elven magic, but that carries its own perils - for magic always has a price, and gods do not come lightly when called.

  2. Sounds like a great read, the JD Rob book sounds good. Happy reading this week!

  3. You have achieved an amazing amount on your blog this week. I do like the In Death series audio, but as I read faster than I listen I tend to read most of them as I am at about Book 9 or 10. Hope this week is good to you.

  4. You've still done a lot this week. Enjoy.

  5. Anointed looks brilliant, I can't wait to read it myself now. I hope you enjoy it and your other reads :)
