  1. I don't think I'll be rushing to see Noah lol. Pompeii was cheese enough but at least there was Kit Harrington's abs to admire 😉 I love historical fiction and I've only ever read the one Jean Plaidy … The Reluctant Queen, I found it a bit dry and emotionless. Have you read it? Is there others you'd recommend?
    Have a great week and happy reading 🙂

  2. I didn't finish any books last week either. 🙁 I still think the Riordan books sound like fun, even though I have not read any of them yet. I like the mythological elements though… one of these days…

  3. I read The City of Falling Angels before I visited Venice in 2008. It's a fascinating book. I hope you enjoy it!

  4. I really enjoyed The Son of Neptune. Will be interesting to see what you thought of the audio book. 🙂 Happy reading this week!

  5. Looks like you have some lovely books to keep you going–I like that you read multiples at the same time.

  6. I would imagine Son of Neptune would be great as an audio book. I did enjoy just reading it. Hmm 2 stars to the Noah movie. Have heard some people rave about it, but not sure that I will go and see it.
