It's Monday! What are You Reading? July 7, 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.

Work week was busy - I was glad for the Friday holiday. 
Saturday the kids and friends were over for fun in the pool and dinner. We had a good time but I was beat by the time they left.
My regular laptop is still in the shop and I have had difficulties with the word programs, even openoffice, on this travel computer.

Reading was good though slow.  I finished two books but am well into two others. I finally posted three reviews at the end of the week. I posted an Audio and  a print giveaway.  I also posted the usual memes. :-)

I didn't get to visit much this past week again.
Thanks as always to all the nice people who visit me.

These were last week's posts:
  • Audio Book Review: Edge of Tomorrow by Hiroshi Sakurazaka; Sci Fi; my rating 4.25.
  • Audible Book Review plus (Audio)  Giveaway: Judgment in Death by J.D. Robb; Crime Thriller, Mystery; my rating 5.  Open US; ends July 12, 2014.
  • Book Review and (Print) Giveaway: Heading Home by John Robinson; Christian Fiction; my rating 4.0.  Open US; ends July 12, 2014.
Finished Reading:
1. Print/eBook

2. Print

by Janet Spaeth
I 've had this on my TBR for a couple of years.
This was a quick, sweet read.
I will be posting a review and a giveaway for another book later this week.
Olivia has a crazy dream, and Hayden isn’t quite sure what to think of the adorable city slicker who shows up in answer to his ad to sell the now-defunct resort his family has owned for decades. Does she really think she can remodel—rebuild, really—the place by herself? And to what end? To reopen a tourist attraction in the middle of nowhere? Shouldn’t a realtor know the old adage “Location, location, location”?

But there’s more to life than surface events. And while Livvy sees the possibilities in her new property, Hayden sees them in her….

Every Time I Love You
by Heather Graham
I wanted to read an American Revolution and found this in one of my collections. Not really American Revolution but interesting so far.
Every Time I Love You is the captivating tale of a modern couple and their struggle with ill-fated past lives.

I am pretty sure that the next eBook will be Half a King by Joe Abercrombie.
There will be a new audio also but I'm not sure which yet.

I am a day ahead 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: Slight delay as we have staff changes. We are still finalizing formatting for four ebook re-releases, two fiction and two non-fiction. We are also working on another print children's release.

I still have some books carried forward. I hope to get to a few of my own TBRs this month. :-) 
I completed three reviews and have two new ones - so four due now.

Planning on an unscheduled giveaway soon.
