Happy First Monday of April, everyone.
It’s Reading Report time!

Open Book by Dave Dugdale

Tell us what you’ve finished over the last month, what you’re currently reading, and what’s on your To Be Read stack/list. And if you’ve reviewed the books you’ve read somewhere, please include links!

  • What book(s) did you finish reading (or listening to) since the last update?
  • What are you currently reading and/or listening to?
  • What’s the next book on your To Be Read stack/list?

Here’s my report:
I got some more reading done in March because I was traveling, so I got through a few audiobooks along the way.

What book(s) did you finish reading (or listening to) since the last update?
As always, click through on the title for my review.

What are you currently reading and/or listening to?

  • From London With Love (Lady Spies, #1) by Jenna Petersen (historical romance–Regency)
  • Persuasion by Jane Austen, audiobook read by Anna Massey (Annual Austen, inspiration/motivation for The Spymaster’s Daughter)

What’s the next book on your To Be Read stack/list?

    I’m waiting for the Kindle version of the April book for my alumni reading group to become available: A Head Full of Ghosts by Paul Tremblay. I tried listening to the audiobook version—but since I tend to listen to my audiobooks for thirty minutes to an hour after I get in bed at night, and since this is the book for the Horror genre, I realized I wasn’t going to be able to do that. So I’m still waiting for the library Kindle book to become available. This may be the only one of the books for this group that I skip if it doesn’t come through in the next week.

    Here are the books I’m hoping to get around to soon—either recent purchases or checkouts/downloads, or research for Spymaster:

  • The Red Door Inn (Prince Edward Island Dreams #1) by Liz Johnson (contemporary inspirational romance)
  • Terror Before Trafalgar: Nelson, Napoleon, and the Secret War by Tom Pocock (nonfiction/Spymaster research)
  • The Other Side of Midnight by Simone St. James (historical paranormal romance–1925)
  • Sport of Baronets (Romance of the Turf Series, #0.5) by Theresa Romain (historical romance–Regency; novella)
  • Her Master and Commander (Just Ask Reeves #1) by Karen Hawkins (historical romance–Regency)
  • Not Another Bad Date by Rachel Gibson (contemporary romance)
  • My Stubborn Heart by Becky Wade (contemporary inspirational romance)
  • Lady Maybe by Julie Klassen (historical romance–Regency)
  • Fairchild’s Lady (The Culper Ring #1.5) by Roseanna M. White (historical inspirational romance–18th Century; novella)
  • Out of the Storm (Beacons of Hope #0.5) by Jody Hedlund (historical inspirational romance–1880s America; novella)
  • A Lady of Esteem (Hawthorne House #0.5) by Kristi Ann Hunter (historical inspirational romance–Regency; novella)
  • Summer of Dreams (From This Moment #0.5) by Elizabeth Camden (historical inspirational romance–1880s America; novella, releases May 3, 2016)

  • Other than that, my next reading selection will most likely be from the 2016 Reading List that I put together for myself on Goodreads for my A to Z reading challenge for this year.

2016 A–Z Reading Challenge Update
Here are the letters (author last names) I haven’t fulfilled yet: A, E, G, I, J, L, O, U, V, X, Y, Z. Considering we’re only a quarter through the year and I’ve already checked off more than half the letters, I think I’m doing pretty well!

My rating matrix:
5 STARS = one of the best I’ve ever read
4 STARS = a great read, highly recommended
3 STARS = it was okay
2 STARS = I didn’t enjoy it all that much, not recommended
1 STAR = DNF (did not finish)
