It's Monday! What Are You Reading? May 12, 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.

We are having a good visit with our son, daughter-in-law and little "Sweet-Pea". 
Work has been frustrating as my computers are experiencing problems that I hope to get sorted out this week.
I enjoyed my reading, finishing three books. I posted three reviews and posted the usual memes. :-)

I'm sorry I didn't get any visiting done this week. I will try this week to find/make some time to visit even with relatives in town.
Thanks as always to all the nice people who visit me.

Blind Man's Bluff (Stone Gap Mountain)
by Kay Stockham
I am really enjoying these characters and the story.
I received this through StoryBundle.
Book Description
Publication Date: September 21, 2012
Can you love someone and still be free?
Emma Wyatt agrees to tutor a recently blinded, embittered soldier because of the $50,000 paycheck his brother offers. Blind herself, Emma dreams of independence and freedom. She wants to own a large kennel and live away from her overprotective family. But when she's attracted to her student, she fears falling for him means giving up her dreams.

Can you protect someone when you cannot see?
Good soldiers show no weakness. Ian MacGregor holds his battle with claustrophobia close to his chest, unsuccessfully trying to cope on his own. He’s lost in the dark and struggling to accept his fate. Ian knows duty, honor, serving his country. But his desire for Emma is overshadowed by the danger lurking around them. Emma would be better off with someone else. Someone sighted.
Someone able to protect her from the person determined to keep them apart.

BLIND MAN'S BLUFF is the first full-length novel in the Stone Gap Mountain Series. Be sure to check out SECRETS OF A SUMMER NIGHT, a Stone Gap Mountain Novella, for the first look at this exciting new contemporary series.

Tricked: The Iron Druid Chronicles, Book 4
Written by: Kevin Hearne
Narrated by: Luke Daniels
I picked this from my TBR to read before my next review audio.
Publisher's Summary
Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert.
But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers. Just when the Druid thinks he’s got a handle on all the duplicity, betrayal comes from an unlikely source. If Atticus survives this time, he vows he won’t be fooled again. Famous last words.

4. I expect I will get to another book but I haven't decided if it will be another eBook from StoryBundle or NetGalley or one of my Audio review books.

I am up to date on my daily Bible reading. I have disciplined myself each morning to read my Bible passage before I pick up print, Kindle or mp3. I am really enjoying the reading.

Line Edits: We are now finalizing formatting for two ebook re-releases, as well as working on two non-fiction releases.

This month I have more review books than from my own TBR. :-) 
I completed three reviews and have two pending for this coming week.

  1. Blind Man's Buff sounds like a book I might enjoy, I will watch out for your review to double check it but the synopsis sounds promising.

  2. I read Tricked this week. I loved it.

  3. We had computer issues all last week at work too, so I can relate. Frustrating! Monster Hunter Vendetta sounds like fun! Nice review of that one...

  4. I'm glad your enjoying your time with family

    Enjoy your week!

  5. I can't wait to see what your review of The Shadow Killer and I hope you like Tricked, I love that series! Oberon is the best part of the books.
