Monday’s Minutes

“Monday’s Minutes” is a weekly post in which I track my bookish life.  All book covers are linked to Goodreads unless otherwise noted.

  • An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon
  • Bad Magic by Pseudonymous Bosch – This is on hold until March since it’s an ebook and I’m participating in Feel the Paper Love February.
  • Succubus Dreams by Richelle Mead – Since I DNF’d the piece of brain candy that my book club chose for this month, I decided to return to a Paranormal Romance series I actually like.  To give you an idea of how rare it is for me to read something like this, the Boyfriend saw it sitting on the table and exclaimed, “What the Hell is this?!”

Total # of books for the year: 9.  The Boyfriend and I celebrated Valentine’s Day on Saturday since he had to work on Sunday.  I made us a nice breakfast and then we went to look at an apartment that we’re planning on moving into next month.  After that, we got smoothies and headed to one of the many parks in Austin that has walking trails.  By the time we were done, we were ready for an early dinner at a little Cuban restaurant he found for me.  While I’m glad we went, I don’t plan on ever going back.  The food was only ok, and the highlight of our dinner was getting an ice cold can of Iron Beer, the Cuban take on root beer, and my favorite soda.  It was still barely evening, so we headed to the used bookstore to see if I could find a hardcover of Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery.  I found a hardcover of the first three books instead, which is even better IMO.  It was supposed to be my one book purchase this year, and we had already exchanged gifts (he got me a hardcover edition of Written in My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon, and I got him A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms by George R.R. Martin).  However, the Boyfriend bought it for me and told me to save my book money for something new ❤  After that we headed home to eat lots of chocolate and watch Shrek.

  1. Book gifts make everything better. 😉 If your bf likes vamp fiction or historical paranormal fiction at all, I’d recommend he read Fevre Dream by George R.R. Martin (just guessing he likes GRRM)- set mostly on steamboats and with a new take on vamps. Did I mention a middle-aged male hero I actually enjoyed? It’s quite the book.
    It’s been a long time since I’ve read Anne of Green Gables… I wonder if I’d like it better now that I’m not as tomboyish.

    1. I got him Fevre Dream a couple years ago, but I can’t remember if he’s read it yet. We are both into vampires 🙂 Anne of Green Gables was my 1st favorite book (after I Dr. Seuss, of course). I don’t even know how many times I’ve read it. I used to have a nice hardcover, but life happened and it was lost. I read an ebook edition a few years ago, but it didn’t feel right.
