Hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day! This week flew by and I've been flying through the books too. I read Polaris Rising and a slew of graphic novels, and the new Extinction Trials arrived. So my weekend reading is sorted. :)

I also read The Santa Klaus Murder and enjoyed it a lot. It was my first foray into the British Library Crime Classics and it was definitely a good start. I'll be collecting those (I love the cover art) and reviewing some as well, including The Santa Klaus Murder this week.   

This past week I shared some thoughts on Ambient Music- that was a fun post to do- and posted Book Beginnings #4. I also reviewed Watcher in the Woods. This coming week will have a post on dreams and The Santa Klaus Murder.

  4. OOh nice! I'm planning to pick up a copy of Polaris Rising today! I read a few reviews and was immediately sold! I still need to start the Extinction Trials but I've a few review books to get through before I will let myself dive into the TBR pile!

    Hope you enjoy your new reads!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so stop by then if you can!

    Have a GREAT day!

    Your Ambient Music post was great and I need to check out some of those people you mentioned. I enjoy that music but also love Game soundtrack music. It seems to relax me. :)

  25. Did you like Polaris Rising? I love to cover to The Extinction Trials Rebel! It does seem like the beginning of this year (which usually feels feels like it drags on and on) is going by so fast!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I did like Polaris rising! It was a smidgen more romance-based than a lot of stuff I read, but it worked. And it's a pretty rollicking space opera also!

      Delete
  26. Good to hear your reading has been good this week Greg. 'Watcher in the Woods'looks like a great read. I'll have to check that one out!
    Have a great week and happy reading!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I read a classic crime this week too - And Death Came Too by Richard Hull. Ok, but not as good as I'd hoped!
    I love the Harbor picture. Looks like somewhere I'd visit :-)

    ReplyDelete
  28. That is awesome you got lots of reading done last week. I need a week like that.

    Mine are Var Wyn The Darness` Lover and Money Buckets BigLips of Dark Water. That was fun thanks for sharing.

  29. Name generators are always fun! Polaris Rising sounds so good! I think I will have to add it to my collection eventually. I hope you have a great week, Greg!

  30. I'm reading Girls with Sharp Sticks whenever I get a chance between packing and it's good so far. I just wish I had more time - or could stay awake these days lol

  31. Oooh enjoy your books! I can't wait to get to Polaris Rising! Amazing art, as always!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I am in love with that Northern Trader piece and the Mystique art! My Valentine's was pretty nice, and really relaxing. My pirate name is Surly BigLips Stinkalot, lol! And my Heroic name is Adewyn the Guardian of the West... I think I prefer this one more.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Sounds like a great week reading wise. I bet the Classic British murder books would be worth reading for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I hope you enjoy Two Can Keep a Secret. Karen is a sweetheart!

  35. I didn't celebrate Valentine's Day this year. My kids were sick. My husband was traveling. But it was also Salmon Cat's birthday. My weekly updates

    ReplyDelete
  36. It does sound like you've been doing some good reading! As usual, love the futuristic/cyberpunk art. My pirate name is Pegleg Sparrow Jackson lol.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Name generators are sooooo fun: I like my Heroic name: Aralot the Undefeated but my pirate one? Not so much: Yerr Kidd Beard.

    Love the northern trader art this week. We were going to go out to dinner over the weekend but my bad cold and the bad weather made us change our minds. We ordered a pizza instead. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  38. It's funny but I almost forgot this week was Valentines Day until I read all the Sunday Posts. We don't really celebrate it since my birthday is on the 11th, and my kids are old enough that they don't celebrate at school or anything. So I basically forgot it existed! :-)

  39. Happy Valentine's Day! I'll be curious to hear what you thought of Polaris Rising. The publisher is really pushing it as sci-fi when it's solidly sci-fi romance. We've been discussing it in the SFR circles. :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Always nice to have a good reading week. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  41. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on Polaris Rising. I keep seeing great reviews for that one.

  48. I like the "pulp cover."

    I just got a Hard Case paperback titled Straight Cut at a Dollar Tree store last week.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I still want to grab Watching You as I haven't yet. I love these pulp covers you do. I also want to know when the next installment of Movies That Suck comes out? I miss it. It's my favorite thing ever. =)
