It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date
Finals week! A week left of classes, basically, then I am taking the summer off. I loved my archaeology class so much that I am taking two more in the fall, even though this is very impractical and has nothing to do with my degree. No matter though, I am doing it anyway!
Read Last Week:
I didn't read either of my planned books because I went to the library and picked up one I couldn't put down. I was also all about the Swedish authors last week. Oo maybe this is what I can call a random swede about! Books!
The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katrina Bivald: I loved loved loved this book!!!! Interestingly, I started this a long time ago as an ebook from NetGalley, and I hated it! However, in actual physical book form, I couldn't stop reading. It is definitely one of the best books I have read this year.
The Illustrated Compendium of Amazing Animal Facts by Maja Safstrom: I got this from Blogging for Books and I really enjoyed it as well. Quick, interesting read with fun, quirky illustrations.
Reading this Week:
If this comes in from the library, I am planning to read it. We shall see though, since I have not been good at keeping on plan.
A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas: I have heard good things about this - my husband listened to it and loved it!
Game of Thrones (yay!), The Ranch (finished it - we need more episodes!), Outsiders, and for class we watched the Nova episode The Ghosts of Machu Picchu and The History Channel's Digging for the Truth: Passage to the Maya Underworld. Both were excellent, although the History Channel piece was not very academically rooted. It was very entertaining, and there was some merit to it. You can watch the Machu Picchu show on Amazon and the Mayan show is on YouTube in three parts.
So, what's been going on with you?
