Weekly Round-Up 2/17

Weekly Round-Up is my wrap-up of last week's activities and includes what I'm reading this week, reviews I've posted, books in the mail and anything else of interest plus From the Library, my weekly listing of what I've checked out from the library.
 I'm reading Untold by Sarah Rees Brennan. I'm listening to Of Triton by Anna Banks, read by Rebecca Gibel.

Last week I reviewed  Emerald Green by Kerstin Gier and Bright Before Sunrise by Tiffany Schmidt.

And if you are interested I've added an Audio Books by Narrator tab onto my menu. It's fun to see what books some of my favorite narrators have read. I've discovered a few books this way.

Of Triton by Anna Banks, read by Rebecca Gibel. 7 hours, 52 minutes.

In this sequel to OF POSEIDON, Emma has just learned that her mother is a long-lost Poseidon princess, and now struggles with an identity crisis: As a Half-Breed, she’s a freak in the human world and an abomination in the Syrena realm below. Syrena law states that all Half- Breeds should be put to death.

As if that’s not bad enough, her mother’s reappearance among the Syrena turns the two kingdoms—Poseidon and Triton—against one another. Which leaves Emma with a decision to make: Should she comply with Galen’s request to keep herself safe and just hope for the best? Or should she risk it all and reveal herself—and her Gift—to save a people she’s never known?

Viva Jacquelina! Being an Account of the Further Adventures of Jacky Faber, Over the Hills and Far Away by L.A. Meyer, read by Katherine Kellgren. 9 hours, 29 minutes.
The vivacious Jacky Faber returns in the tenth tale in L. A. Meyer’s Bloody Jack Adventures, a rip-roaring young-adult series applauded for its alluring combination of adventure, romance, history, and humor. Once again under the thumb of British Intelligence, Jacky is sent to Spain to spy for the Crown during the early days of the nineteenth-century Peninsular War. She finds herself in the company of guerilla freedom fighters, poses for the famous artist Goya, runs with the bulls, is kidnapped by the Spanish Inquisition, and travels with a caravan of gypsies...all while hoping to one day reunite with her beloved Jaimy Fletcher.

  1. Sounds like you have some interesting books going. I like the idea of tracking audio book narrators - I don't always pay attention to who the narrator is, but the right (or wrong) one can definitely make a big difference!

    Enjoy your books this week -
