Good Books, Fun Projects!

I'm working on a few fun projects this week, and I got so excited about them, I forgot to write a blog post for today! Besides the projects, I'm on a reading marathon. I'd ordered several must-read books from our library, and four of them arrived last week.

When it rains, it pours, right?

Last night I selected one of them. I'll read the first couple of paragraphs and see if it grabs me. If it does, I'll read a few chapters...

Yeah. Well, it grabbed me all right, and it's the first lengthy volume in an epic series. Could I put it down after a few chapters? Of course not! And I'm itching to pick it up and find out what happens next. Maybe tonight!

Oh, and the book is A Game of Thrones (Book 1, A Song of Fire and Ice Series) by George R. R. Martin. I have never seen the HBO series, but I've heard the books are great. So far, I agree!

Anyway, I'm taking the week off from blogging. :)

Are you working on any fun projects? What's the last book you got sucked into?

Hope you all have a lovely week!

  1. I love the Game of Thrones books. Right now, I'm reading the fourth novel in the series. It's amazing how these characters evolve. I promise not to give out any spoilers :-) Enjoy!

    1. Wow! I didn't realize Diana Gabaldon was still writing the series! I read the first three Outlanders several years ago. She's a gifted writer, that's for sure! Enjoy!

  3. No fun projects just now. The last book I got sucked into was Anne of Green Gables. I know, I couldn't believe it either.

    1. I love that book! I read the whole series. The final installment, Rilla's book, was one of my faves!

  4. I'm reading Dani Pettrey's debut novel, Submerged. I don't read much romantic suspense, but I'd heard such great things about this story that I made an exception. I'm about a third of the way in. The suspense angle is well done, but I'm glad to see the romance beginning to heat up a bit. Yeah, I'm a hopeless romantic. :-)

  5. I just finished reading a series by Lauraine Snelling, called the Dakotah Treasures- Ruby, Pearl, Opal and Amethyst. Each of the books kept me reading. A friend passed me the first two at first and then she brought me the second two. The stories are set in the 1880's. I noticed how she italicized the characters thoughts and she also italicized the words when God spoke to them.

  6. I just finished (well, last week) Becky Wade's My Stubborn Heart...yeah, I'm a little behind. And my projects/reading list is longer than I have enough time for!

    1. Becky's Wade was one of my top picks for last year! I loved that book! Can't wait to read her next one! My to-be-read pile is obnoxious too. :)

  7. I read all of Laura Frantz's works within about 2 weeks. I'm seriously in withdrawal.
    I'm working on my query letter. Fun? HAHAHA!

    Not.

  8. I just left a comment. Nom nom nom. It got eaten.
    I went on a Laura Frantz-a-thon last month. Must. Have. More.

    Fun project? Bahahaha. My query.
