Monday Malarkey

Happy Monday! Still don't feel like writing much so I'll keep the malarkey brief, again.

This week's arrivals:

  • The Complete Beatles Songs by Steve Turner - for review from Dey Street
  • Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman, full cast dramatization on CD - purchased from Amazon UK

So excited that the Neverwhere CDs arrived before the end of the month. Is anyone still reading Neverwhere?

This week's reads:

Oops, ignore the top book. I already mentioned that one, last week (Three Days in the Country by Patrick Marber - love the cover). Since last Monday, I've finished three books:

  • The Fortnight in September by R. C. Sherriff
  • Five Children on the Western Front by Kate Saunders
  • Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

I gave all three of those book 5 stars at Goodreads, although I always round up when I think a book falls between a 4 and 5. The three titles could not be more different from each other.

Last week's posts:

Given my continuing disinterest in writing reviews, it may be about time for me to take another blog break. We'll see if I feel like writing any, this week. If I don't by Friday, I'll take some time off.

  1. I ordered Illuminae recently. It looks so interesting. Didn't want to do it as an e-book, so I'm patiently waiting. It's the first of a trilogy, right?

    1. You made the right decision ordering the paper book. I've heard there are problems with the e-book, at least with the ARC, and I'm not surprised because it's a book meant to look like a dossier but with some pages that require a bit of turning of the book to read the print - lots of graphic stuff.

      Yes, I believe it's the first in a trilogy. I really enjoyed it. The romance aspect is a bit sappy and hard to swallow but it's so action packed that I just ignored that and enjoyed the ride. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

  2. I had to finally force myself to blog. There seems to be a blogging slump going around.

    1. Yeah, several people have told me they just don't feel like blogging . . . or have been away for months. I really do think sometimes it's best to walk away for a while and come back when the urge strikes you but I'm glad you blogged! Will go peek in. :)

  3. Sad to hear you're leaving us...again. Hope you return soon :).

    1. I guess I am, aren't I? LOL I've just let myself do what I feel like, this week. It always works, stepping away. I finished two books, this morning, and wrote several reviews at Goodreads. Not sure why I chose to write there instead of here but at least I felt like writing!
