It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday What Are You Reading? is a weekly reading roundup is hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date.

This is technically a weekly meme but I don’t read fast enough to make that worthwhile so I post it every other week.

It’s been a busy couple of weeks. Between needing to finish a baby afghan and a couple of potlucks and various other events I’ve had to sacrifice a lot of reading time. I’m hoping that with a short work week and a long Thanksgiving weekend with less than normal on our calendar that I can finish the month strongly in terms of books and reading.

Collected Essex County by Jeff Lemire

Complete Essex County by Jeff Lemire

This was a reread in a way. I’d already read the three books in the trilogy over a period of months but this collected edition that also has some additional stories is my recommended way of reading this series.

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #01: The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #01: The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan

Yes, I’m still reading this one. It’s good and I’m enjoying it but my schedule and To Do list over the past couple of weeks have been conspiring to keep me from finishing it.

Thank You, Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse

Thank You, Jeeves by P.G. Wodehouse

This is the first Jeeves novel. I’ve enjoyed the short stories in this series and the longer novel format is different. This one was not as good as the short stories in my opinion. It was entertaining and I did enjoy it but I think I prefer Wodehouse’s short stories more than the longer form stories.

A Royal Pain by Rhys Bowen

A Royal Pain by Rhys Bowen

This is the second in the Royal Spyness series set in 1930’s London and featuring Lady Georgianna Rannoch. She may be a distant relative to the queen but she’s got no real income and is creative in making a living within the confines of aristocratic expectations. Along the way she manages to also do some pretty good sleuthing. This is my first time trying the audio editions of this series
