Showcase Sunday - What I Got and What I Read
This week I decided to be wildly different and not only linkup with Vicky from Books, Biscuits and Tea but also show what I read.
First up is What I Got:
Answer - Not a whole lot. I got 2 nonfiction, 1 romance and 1 mystery e-ARCs.
I have a weakness for Russian history especially Romanov history.
Food, Eating and Identity in Early Medieval England by Allen J. Frantzen
I love the idea of taking a look at how food is important in archaeological terms
Twelfth Night by Deanna Raybourn - I read her historical kind of romance last week (Review) and enjoyed it so was thrilled to get an opportunity to read one in her mystery series.
Suddenly Last Summer by Sarah Morgan - I have a friend who loves this author plus it involves a chef. Looking forward to reading it.
What I Read -
This one is a little better. I really wanted to participate in yesterday's read-a-thon but ended up kind of chickening out. Next year though!
Despite not doing the read-a-thon I did get a few books read this week including:
Always on My Mind by Jill Shalvis (Review)
Zero Hour by Agatha Christie - I've got 2 more to read in the 1940s. Have mixed feelings on this one
Muzzled by Eileen Brady (Review)
Delancey by Molly Wizenberg - Review will be up May 5th
Attachment by Rainbow Rowell - Review will be up tomorrow
And Then He Kissed Her by Laura Lee Guhrke - This is basically comfort reading for me. I picked it up when I wasn't feeling well Friday.
What I'm Reading -
Dog Gone, Back Soon by Nick Trout
Murder on the Home Front by Molly Lefebure
The Word Exchange by Alena Graedon
Passionately Yours by Cara Elliott
Forgotten Seamstress by Liz Trenow
Death Comes at the End by Agatha Christie
Peril in Paperback by Kate Carlisle
