TBR Thursday Library Reads: February 21, 2019

Due to the holiday and snow day this week I got a lot of reading done. I actually haven't even been in the office at all this week. I have been teleworking so the house has never been as clean and the cat as cranky since I had surgery.

Today's New Books

Another batch - and maybe one more before I turn in.  I've been tweaking the cleanup, but I'm also trying to figure out the best way to get new dumps that don't include data from previous dumps, which today's file was full of; I tried to weed them all out, but apologies if I missed any.

DNF The Wicked Vampire
The Wicked Vampire (Last True Vampire series) - Kate Baxter

It’s bern nearly two months since I last picked this book up and current have no desire to finish it. While there are some deliciously steamy sex scenes the plot seems repetitive in the I love you but I hate you theme. It’s not badly written or anything it’s just not doing anything for me personally right now.

Thank you Netgalley and St Martin’s Press for the review copy.

BookLikes Snakes and Ladders | Let's Do This!

I'm totally joining in, if only because this looks like a bit of simple fun pre-BL-opoly anticipation!  And the reading tasks are broad enough.  Going to be using Dino Baby as my marker (see tiny image on square one below).

For the first square I'm going to just continue with my reading plans and read Pamela Clare's Sweet Release, so I'm already set.  Meanwhile, I'm contemplating creating a table for a more organized view of my game play tracking--work in progress.

Around the World in 80 Books Mostly by Female Authors: Master Update Post

The aim: To diversify my reading and read as many books as possible (not necessarily 80) set in, and by authors from, countries all over the world.  Female authors preferred.  If a book is set in a location other than that of the author's nationality, it can apply to either (but not both).

 

On the map I'm only tracking new reads, not also rereads.

Japan
