Weekly Meme: Musing Mondays (August 29)

The weekly Musing Mondays question of the week (via the Should Be Reading blog) is:

This week’s musing is… a book meme!

What was the last book you…
• borrowed from the library?
• bought?
• cried over?
• disliked and couldn’t finish?
• read & loved?
• got for review? (or: got in the mail?)
• gave to someone else?
• stayed up too late reading?



What was the last book you…

  1. Borrowed from the library? Agatha Christie’s The Mirror Crack’d from Side to Side (A Miss Marple Mystery) – just for a change of pace versus all the Swedish crime books I had been reading
  2. Bought? Maria V. Snyder’s The Study Series Bundle (Poison Study, Magic Study and Fire Study) – this fantasy series about a condemned prisoner’s adventures was highly recommended to me so I hope it lives up to the hype!
  3. Cried over? Ummm, can’t recall, haven’t read any tear-jerkers lately…
  4. Disliked and couldn’t finish? More than I can list here, but the first to come to mind is Eliot Schrefer’s School for Dangerous Girls – the main character was so unlikable that I just couldn’t make myself care about her story
  5. Read & loved? Terry Pratchett’s I Shall Wear Midnight (Discworld – Tiffany Aching Series) – I treasure all of Pratchett’s books (especially after his Alzheimer’s diagnosis)
  6. Got for review? (or: got in the mail?) I don’t really get any books from publishers for review, I just review whatever I like
  7. Gave to someone else? Well, I can’t really give away a Kindle book, so what I did was this complicated register-deregister maneuver so my friend could get The Strain (Strain Trilogy) by Chuck Hogan and Guillermo Del Toro on his Kindle. I actually thought the novel was so bad, it was almost good – lol, as in it was unintentionally hilarious- I warned my friend about how ridiculous the storyline was (the CDC versus vampires! ), but he’s a die hard Guillermo Del Toro fan (of the Academy Award-winning Pan’s Labyrinth fame) so he still wanted it (but not enough to pay for it)
  8. Stayed up too late reading? What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty – loved this twist on the amnesia plot and couldn’t help but stay up all night to read it!

    I’ve been wanting to buy Posion Study ever since I first heard about it, but the store never seems to have it. I guess I’ll just have to break down and buy from an online store.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! I’ll be sure to check out the rest of your blog

    Thanks for visiting my blog! I am thinking about the Miss Marple books — I have never been a huge mystery reader but I am liking the Aunt Dimity series so much, I might have to expand my horizons!

    Adding What Alice Forgot to my to-read list!!

    I need to read What Alice Forgot also, thanks for a great list of book I had not really read.

    The Study Series is awesome. Seriously you will not be disappointed. I’ve read them twice, and the Glass Series once 🙂 Thanks for stopping by my blog!

      Cool – like I said, I hope that series lives up to the hype!
