Monday Combo 8/24

Here goes another week! below you’ll find my Monday Combo!
Today’s Musing Monday’s question is:

Do you prefer to read stand-alone books, or books in series? Do you stick with a series the whole way through or stop after the first instalment? Are there any particular series you enjoy?

– I like both! although I notice I like to collect series a lot, especially when it comes to fantasy books.  I usually go with the series the whole way through unless the books are just really really bad then I have to stop. I do get my special moments of stubborness where I have to complete the series but so far, I’ve only had to stop once recently. My favorite series? wow where do I start? I like the Dragonlance Chronicles. I like anything to do with Drizzt Do’Urden. I absolutely love The War of the Spider Queen series (Forgotten Realms). I love Sookie Stackhouse and well, obviously, Harry Potter! I really love The Warriorcats series by Erin Hunter (anything to do with kitties is fun to read!). Aside from fantasy, well, historical fiction I loved the Tudor series from Philippa Gregory or the Sano Ichiro mysteries by Laura Joh Rowland. I’m about to start the Alex Cross series by James Patterson (I’ve heard real good stuff from it) but I also like Agent Pendergast (even though I only read one so far). I haven’t started the Twilight series yet (yes I know..I’m behind) I will once Breaking Dawn comes out in paperback. Whew! a lot of series that I listed huh? 🙂

In Mailbox Monday I received the following:

The Grand Sophy – Georgette Heyer (won in a contest)
Secondhand Spirits – Juliet Blackwell (requested by me)
Unpredictable Crossing by Jonna-Lynn Mandelbaum (Bostick)
The Cave by Steve McGill (Bostick)
The Devil’s Brood – Sharon Kay Penman (Librarything win)

pretty good for the week 🙂

what did everybody else get?

For Library Finds this week I got:

The Kommedant’s Girl – Pam Jenoff (WWII fix, The 6th Lamentation didn’t work for me)
Poltergeist – Kat Richardson (Read Greywalker, might as well continue)
The Blue Notebook – James Levine (Sounded interesting)
Blindness – Jose Saramago (saw the movie, liked it, wanted to read the book)

What did you guys find at the library?

it’s gonna be a real busy week of reading!
