I wanted something nice and light to break up all the gothic books I'm reading for book club. This oughtta do the trick!
Slow day at work, so I was able to finish this audiobook. Not as much fun as the first book and I‘m a little concerned about how the cliffhanger is going to play out in the next book, but still a fun romp through a steampunk version of Victorian England and Scotland with great characters.
What is wrong with me? I haven‘t finished a book in 10 days. Ten! I‘ve started all but one of these and I‘m enjoying them all, but I just can‘t focus for long, and two of these MUST be read by the end of the month. 😭😭 Does this ever happen to anyone else? I‘m starting to get really stressed about it.
I have a carefully planned out #TBR for April. This book is not on it, but it is the book I WANT to read, so I‘m starting it now, TBR plans be damned. 🙄🤦🏻♀️ #Bailey is 💯 done with me and my nonsense. 🤣🤣 #dogsoflitsy #pitbullsoflitsy #readingbuddy #snugglebuddy #moodreader
Afternoon Tea Break with Changeless. Loving the reread. First time was a binge read, this time I'm savoring.
Happy to see return of one of my all time favorite characters - Genevieve Lefoux.
I finished this up on audiobook last night. It was just as good as the first one!! That ending though had me sitting in shock, and had be running to download the third book at 2am!!!! Hahahahaha! I am just in love with all of these characters. I suggest this series to EVERYONE!! Do you ever wish you could be apart of the world a book is written about? Well I would love to be in this world!! What book do you wish you could “live in”
I have an hour break in between classes and so I decided to start in on a new audiobook! I loved Soulless soooooooo much when I listened to it a few months ago so I‘m super excited to listen to the rest! I just adore Alexia ! Who else loves this series? I recommend this to everyone!!!! You must listen/read Soulless first tho! If you haven‘t put it on hold or download it ASAP! 📚😍❤️
Actually using my elliptical tonight while revisiting an old friend. I'm woefully out of shape.
Still a pick but not nearly as good as Soulless.
I did pick up the whole series from the library, so on to the next one! 😊
I'm glad I have some shorter/faster reads because I'm also reading The Count of Monte Cristo (for #MakeMeReadIt) and I'm reading that veryy slowly (256 pages out of 1000😫)
This was just as great as the first in the series. Unfortunately it left off with a nasty cliffhanger and I immediately had to pick up the next book to find out what happens. I hate when I get played like this! :) #78of2018
I actually liked this sequel to Soulless even more than the first! Though I have to say, the spoiler cover image would have been better placed on the third installment... still, this has been #steampunk fun that took me by surprise, though this has been on my TBR shelf since 2011!!
#steampunkswap # @IheartYA. What an awesome swap I received. It came at a great time. I have had some very difficult times this past month. 2 deaths and a friend whose 3 year old that has had heart surgery. I have been awful distressed. But this box made me feel tons better. Thank you
The little and I are catching the red eye tonight. I have only packed the tagged book, for our 7 day trip. Don‘t worry though, I also have about 40 ebooks on my iPad and phone.
Book 2 in the Parasol Protectorate with The Soulless Alexia Tarrbotti and her husband who disappears leaving her with an investigation. So much fun with her sass, her friends and steampunk. Oh, and this one has a cliffhanger.
I didn‘t know if I was going to stick with this series after the first book (it‘s a little outside my normal reads) but I‘m glad I did. I‘m about half way through and enjoying this one much more than the first thus far.
This one is still a pick, but I didn‘t enjoy it as much as the first one. I still love the characters and the way the world works, but this story just seemed slow to me. And Conall‘s complete and utter lack of trust in his wife just made me angry. Pic I took today of Pip the border collie pretending to be a werewolf in silhouette.
Fancy some book and food matching? This steam punk Victorian mystery/romance with wit and style definitely suits a creamy milk chocolate with Italian Piedmont hazelnuts. They're both delicious! (And Agatha is one very cool half Italian heroine 😎)
PS I am desperate to read the next book in this series. The mystery in this one was less complex (still good though) but I am so cross at one character and need some Serious Comeuppance!
My latest book haul from San Diego Comic Con 2017! I have so much reading to do now.... My tbr pile will never stop growing. I got very lucky and had a copy of Changeless signed by the wonderful Gail Carriger! I was so glad I got to meet her. She was really nice. Plus, I met Seanan McGuire and told her how I liked her Wayward Children series at one of her signings. Then, I met John Allison the writer for Giant Days. Everyone I met was so nice! :D
#bookmail two for today. Changeless and Timeless to round out the series I bought at the library book sale.
The Parasol Protectorate series is a welcome escape for pretty much anyone; it definitely leans more towards the more feminine and Victorian sensibilities. However can enjoy the quick-witted dialogue and fast paced plot and the hilarious chapter titles. Just great - my favorite find of the year so far 😎
