September 15 | Currently Reading

This past week was kind of a blur. I got hit with a vicious cold and my one year old came down with strep throat. (The joys of daycare!) Somehow I managed to publish two reviews. Maybe I need to find myself in a fever state more often!

In case you missed them, I posted my reviews of Wool by Hugh Howey and Earthly Things by Julian Vaughn.

The only book I finished last week was Nick Cutter's The Deep, but it was a good one. If you love horror, this book has some horrible stuff in it. I may actually have to read it again before writing my review.

The Deep by Nick Cutter

It took me quite a while of perusing my bookshelves, my kindle, and goodreads before deciding on the perfect change of pace. I'm now reading Agatha Christie's first Miss Marple book Murder at the Vicarage.

Murder at the Vicarage by Agatha Christie

I have no idea what I'm planning to read next.

Is it getting cold where you are? We are actually having a little bit of a cool spell here. It's kind of nice! I'm not ready for winter, but I really do love the fall.

What are you reading this week? Be sure to let me know in the comments or leave me a link!

  1. I read the Wool series and have Sand on my kindle yet unread. I also enjoyed Howey's writing. It dragged a bit long towards the end, but overall was very entertaining.

  2. It has been a long time since I have read anything by Agatha Christie! I enjoyed reading her books in high school even though I never figured out the mystery part! Haha! Hope you have a great reading week! :)

    Here's my Monday: http://craftybooksheeps.blogspot.com/2014/09/its-monday-what-are-you-reading_15.html

    1. I missed out on all of the Agatha Christies! I have so many good books to read. I'll probably grab one every time I feel a reading slump coming on. :)

  3. I had a bit of a horror binge last week and read both Pines and Wayward from Blake Crouch's trilogy, so The Last Town is up this week. I also finished Seanan McGuire's Sparrow Hill Road and Doug Clegg's novella Dinner With the Cannibal Sisters. Lining up some more horror for this upcoming weekend. Trying to keep up the pace! (I never can quench the horror craving - looking forward to THE DEEP!)

    Just started Sophie Hanna's Agatha Christie title.

    1. I knooow. I tried to comment on your Wayward post last night from my phone. I closed it out (darn feedly!!) instead of submitting. Haha. I will go try again. :) Dinner With the Cannibal Sisters?! I love Clegg, and I don't know about that one.

      The Deep is so much horror. [Happy Place.]

      Sophie Hanna...? I have so many things to check out from your one comment! You are the best.

    2. I'm posting a review of the Clegg for Friday. Sophie Hannah (I misspelled her name) has a great psychological thriller series but has now taken on Poirot in penning a new Christie mystery, THE MONOGRAM MURDERS.

    3. I will look for that tomorrow! Oh, I see. Like a V.C. Andrews type of situation. That makes sense.

  4. Oo horror you say? I'll check it out!

  5. Horrible like 'The Troop' or 'The Strain' or 'The Girl Next Door'? Now I am intrigued...

    1. Horrible like The Troop. :) If you liked The Troop, oh yes, you should read The Deep.

  6. Oh man. A couple of my kids got sick the first week back to school too. One of my kids has already managed to get sick twice, poor guy.
    The Deep sounds really good although I wasn't a big fan of The Troop. Murder at the Vicarage will be my next Christie!

    It's getting cold here at nights but the days are still upper 80's/low 90's which is too hot for September as far as I'm concerned. :) I'm not ready for Winter either but I love the Fall... even though it only seems to last a few short weeks here before jumping right into Winter.

  7. My 5 year wound up coming down with it over the weekend. He's been sick all week! Aw, your poor guy. Twice already!

    I'm not sure you'll love it if you didn't like The Troop. It seemed to have a lot of what folks complained about the first time around. I dug it, though. :)

    Murder at the Vicarage was fun. I will keep reading more Miss Marple books.

    Winter is the worst!
