This Week in Reading - May 14

It's Sunday Post time!  This is hosted by the awesome Caffeinated Book Reviewer and gives us all a chance to recap our week.

What I Got:

The Dream Keeper's Daughter by Emily Colin - A missing persons case, a pretty cover, and eerie phone calls make for a book I couldn't resist! (NetGalley)

All the Secret Places by Anna Carlisle - This is another mystery from the past rearing it's ugly head in the present.  This author is new to me but it looks like it could be fun and more than a little creepy! (NetGalley)

Killer Party by Lynn Cahoon - This is one of my favorite cozy mystery series so of course I couldn't miss this one (NetGalley)

Dead Storage by Mary Feliz - I really loved the first book in the series and am looking forward to the second so of course I couldn't resist getting third! (NetGalley)

The Innkeeper's Sister by Linda Goodnight - I loved The Rain Sparrow which was the previous book from this series that centers around an Bed and Breakfast in Tennessee.  I'm not exactly sure what this one is about but I love how the author develops characters and emotional connections as well as handling darker issues without dismissing them or making them grim so I'm looking forward to this one (NetGalley).

Dark Rites by Heather Graham - It's the next book in the Krewe of Hunters series so of course I couldn't resist!  (NetGalley)


Reading:  Because You're Mine by Colleen Coble and Buns by Alice Clayton

Listening:  I just finished Rather Be the Devil by Ian Rankin which I really enjoyed and am starting First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones tomorrow.

Watching:  Not much actually.  I haven't been in a TV watching mood and most of my favorites have gone to season finales and I typically put off watching those until later in the summer.

Off the Blog:

Not a huge amount happened this week.  I have chronic tendonitis in an ankle I broke years ago and have been having a flare up which means lots of rest, ice, and elevating.

This coming week is the last full week of school for the Tornado.  He's signed up for 2 weeks of Space Camp and I've got a few activities in mind.  I think that and a few trips to Mississippi to visit family will make for a fun summer!

  1. The Dream Keeper's Daughter looks very tempting. Enjoy!

    How interesting about space camp for Tornado. Hope he loves it.

    Have a great week, and thanks for visiting my blog. Happy Mother's Day!

  2. Ouch on the ankle...sounds painful. Your school finishes so much earlier than ours...not sure I could cope with that much time off school.

  3. Ouch! Hope your ankle feels better. Yay for space camp! That should be fun. Happy Mother's Day!

  4. Ouch to the ankle and I guess though that allows for some reading time. You certainly have a good few books coming in. Hope they all live up to expectations.

  5. The Dream Keeper's Daughter does sound good, and I've been meaning to try a Lynn Cahoon cozy but just haven't yet. Sorry to hear about your ankle! Hope it feels better soon.

    Happy reading this week. :)

  6. Hope the ankle feels better soon. And I think both The Dream Keeper's Daughter and All The Secret Places sound great. Plenty of reading time now too, while resting that ankle! Every cloud has a silver lining :D

  7. You got some great books. I hope you enjoy them. I hope you ankle feels better soon. :) Have a great week.

  8. I hope that your ankle feels better soon. Your week ahead looks good. Have a great reading week!

  9. Great haul! I am excited for The Innkeeper's Sister too. Wow school ends early there. We still have a month left. Space camp sounds awesome. Hope your ankle feels better. Have a great week!!

  10. You got some good sounding books this week, Katherine. I especially like the sound of The Innkeeper's Sister. I like books that can talk about serious things without getting too dark.

    It's hard to believe it's almost summer vacation for school kids! I hope the Tornado has a wonderful summer--and that you do, too!

  11. Well, you got a lot of great ones and I am trying to not run off and go request Hope your ankle feels better soon and that you have a great week.

    Happy reading,
    Week in Review

  12. All those end-of-the-year activities are exhausting... I remember being more than ready for summer vacation after all of that! We don't watch much television when the weather turns nice either. Hope you have a great week!

  13. Great selection here. Space Camp sounds so fun and I think you've mentioned it before. Trips to the Mississippi sound wonderful also! Sorry your tendonitis has flared up. I hope it passes soon.

  14. Lots of new-to-me titles. Hope you love them!

  15. Good luck with the ankle, it sounds horribly painful. Not the best of timing with the Tornado now finishing school - our children don't break up until the 3rd week of July for the summer holidays. That must be when yours are about to go back? I hope you enjoy your reads and have a great week.

  16. Nice haul this week! Sorry to hear about your tendonitis. That must make things difficult. My daughter's last full week is this week as well. It seems so early to me. Happy Mother's Day and have a great week!

  17. Space camp... so jealous. I wonder if they have space camp for parents? I had a bout with chronic tendonitis in my ankle twice and those mid-calf high brace booties with the rocker bottom work wonders because they rock forward as you walk, so you are not flexing your ankle as much. I kept my bootie and the secind time it happened I just wore it until my ankle was better again. A foot doctor ordered it for me. Have a fabulous week. :)

  18. Dang on the flare up. Hope it passes quickly for ya! And the summer definitely sounds like it'll be a fun one :D
