What Are You Reading: April 30, 2012: 04/29/12
I'm about half way done with the remaining term paper. As my mind is crammed up with the paper, I've found myself being pickier about what I read. That's reflected in the three unfinished books.
My favorite read last week was The Fifteenth Pelican by Tere Rios. It was the inspiration for The Flying Nun TV show. A close runner up for best read, is Pie by Sarah Weeks.
I haven't finished Watchlist: A Serial Thriller edited by Jeffery Deaver but I am getting close. I'm about 3/4 of the way through. I plan to finish it this week. I would also like to finish Deadly Décisions by Kathy Reichs.
What about you?

I also didn't like the Abraham Lincoln book, and now I feel a bit vindicated when I see someone else reject it.
I have to check out Pie.

You should never feel bad about not liking a book. Pie, though is delightful. I hope you like it too.

I used to love The Flying Nun in television, a book based on the series could be interesting
Have fun reading!

The book inspired the series. That said, the series was a very good adaptation of the book.

I have read the Ben January series by Hambly and loved her. She seems like a very diverse writer! 1Q84 seems so interesting! I will have to check out your review!
Comment #6: Monday, April 30, 2012 at 13:30:33
I've only read the first chapter of the Hambly book, so I don't have any opinion yet on it. Don't hold your breath for 1Q84 as I'm only on page 300!

I heard Sarah Weeks talk about Pie. She was a speaker at a conference I attended. It was before the book came out. I sort of forgot about it. Thanks for reminding me that I wanted to read that book someday. Have a wonderful week!
Comment #8: Monday, April 30, 2012 at 13:33:18
I think Sarah Weeks also made a blog post about Pie around the time it first came out. Anyway... I forgot about wanting to read the book too until I saw a copy on display at the library. It was a delightful book.

I could not get into Abraham as a Vampire Killer...LOL, hope you did ok with it ;)

I got about 1/3 of the way through Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter before I grew tired of the way it was written. I skipped to the last fifty pages and skimmed them. When it was obvious that the writing style didn't improve or settle down, I decided I was done.

I just got Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter on audio - so I hope I have better luck with it ... now I'm a little scared to even start it :-)
Comment #12: Monday, April 30, 2012 at 13:42:38
You might do better with it as audio because you won't have to look at the annoying formating!
Comment #13: Monday, April 30, 2012 at 08:48:49
I enjoyed Love Walked In and plan to read this author's other work soon.
Thanks for visiting my blog, and have a great week.
Comment #14: Monday, April 30, 2012 at 13:43:48
I'm only on the second chapter of Love Walked In but I am enjoying it.
Comment #15: Monday, April 30, 2012 at 09:34:39
Uh oh! Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter!! What did you think?? What are YOU reading??
Comment #16: Monday, April 30, 2012 at 13:45:39
I didn't finish it. I've decided I'm bored with these mashups. I got even less far in Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters.
Comment #17: Monday, April 30, 2012 at 12:17:11
How was the Abraham Lincoln book? Was it not worth finishing??
Comment #18: Monday, April 30, 2012 at 13:46:21
I didn't finish it. I'm just not into the mashups. The last two I tried didn't work for me.
Comment #19: Monday, April 30, 2012 at 13:14:16
Looks like you've got a great week lined up!
Comment #20: Monday, April 30, 2012 at 13:48:31
Thank you. Happy reading.
Comment #21: Monday, April 30, 2012 at 19:50:59
I read the first book in Diane Mott Davidson's series, but I really need to get back to it. The first one was really good. Have a great week!
Comment #22: Saturday, May 05 2012 at 19:52:59
I am completely addicted to Davidson's series. I've been listening to them all on audio.
Comment #23: Monday, April, 30, 2012 at 22:05:11
I've heard good things about Marisa de los Santos, but I haven't read any of her books yet. I hope you enjoy Love Walked In!
Comment #24: Saturday, May 05 2012 at 19:54:20
I'm not sure what to think yet of Love Walked In. It's told in alternating voices. One of the characters I adore and the other one is just so dull.
Comment #25: Wednesday, May 02, 2012 at 21:55:20
Most of these titles are new to me - I'm going to have to look them up. I haven't read Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter but I have been curious to try some of the other books in that 'series' ... not sure how much I would enjoy them though!
Thanks for stopping by my blog this week! :D

I've decided I'm done with the mashups.
