Sunday post 18; What are you reading on Monday 6

Linking up with Kimba at for the Sunday Post and with Kathryn at for It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Apparently I haven't done one of these posts in about three weeks. Or any post in about three weeks.

That was an unintended break, and hopefully one that won't be repeated. We'll see though, life, etc.

Speaking of, it's trucking along here much as usual. I started applying for jobs after the new year, and will keep doing so while I cross fingers and toes that something will come up soon. As nice at it has been to be at home for the past four months, it's time to venture out into the world again.

I've been baching the past week, J and spawn headed up north to visit J's parents and I stayed home to hold down the fort and feed the cats. They're due back tomorrow, and as nice as the peace and quiet has been, I'm looking forward to them coming home.

My reading year has got off to a bit of an unsteady start, but I have got through four books - The Gunslinger, Lion of Senet, The Distance Between Us and Magekiller #2 - so that's not too bad. Hopefully if my blogging habit is returning after three weeks in the outer limits, I'll do a short reviews post this week.

Also, hopefully, I'm going to do a post on my three favourite non-match 3 games.

As for what I'm reading ... I finished Lion of Senet today, and really enjoyed it. I'm about halfway through Shadowshaper by Daniel Jose Older, and I think Sierra might be one of my new favourite characters. Possibly ever.

After that ... possibly book two of the Dark Tower series, and a re-read of Captive Prince and Prince's Gambit by C S Pacat before King's Rising is released next month.

How about you? How's your week been? What are you reading?


  1. Good luck with the job search. My reading year got off a little slow too, but has picked up this week. Glad you've had some good reads...

    Happy reading this week.

  2. I hope you'll find a job that fits perfectly for you, Maree!
    I agree, sometimes, it's nice to have the house to myself, but I rather do miss the man and the kids when they're not around, too.
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

  3. Fingers crossed for finding the perfect job ;) I like it when I have the house to myself from time to time - well, there's still the cat to boss me around ! Enjoy your week-end ;)

  4. Ahh we've all had those moments where we lose track of regular posts! Hope you have a good week!

  5. Good luck with the job search! Hopefully you'll land on the perfect place for you soon. The quiet house sounds nice! I always plan to get so much reading done in times like that but normally end up getting sucked into TV! Have a great week!

  6. I always enjoy a good blogging break here and there- sometimes that is exactly what you need to feel refreshed. I hope that this week goes great for you reading wise! Happy reading!

  7. The Dark Tower series is one of my husband's favorites. Best of luck with the job search!

  8. I remember reading The Lion and the Senet. I hope you enjoyed it! I always enjoy it when I have the house to myself, but it is nice to have everyone home as well, especially if they've been gone awhile. I hope you have a great week!

  9. Fingers crossed for your job hunt!
