Weekend Blog Hops - 1 February 2019

It's the weekend once more. That means it's time for my book-blogger hopping.
Audio books vs eBook? If the world stopped printing books which would you prefer between the two?
I would pick eBooks, without a moment's hesitation. I've never gotten on with audio books. Other things distract me while I'm listening, so I don't take it in and lose track of what's happening. I'm a fairly visual person. I need to see the words on the page in order to full digest and appreciate them. sentence:
On her last night as a warmblood, Phoebe Taylor had been a good daughter.


From page 56:
Markus rocked the cradle gently, lessons forgotten, and imagined himself in a cave in the woods, waiting for his commanding officer to arrive and praise him for his valor.

My Current Read 
Time's Convert
Deborah Harkness

Set in contemporary Paris and London, and the American colonies during the upheaval and unrest that exploded into the Revolutionary War, a sweeping story that braids together the past and present.

On the battlefields of the American Revolution, Matthew de Clermont meets Marcus MacNeil, a young surgeon from Massachusetts, during a moment of political awakening when it seems that the world is on the brink of a brighter future. When Matthew offers him a chance at immortality and a new life, free from the restraints of his puritanical upbringing, Marcus seizes the opportunity to become a vampire. But his transformation is not an easy one and the ancient traditions and responsibilities of the de Clermont family clash with Marcus's deeply-held beliefs in liberty, equality, and brotherhood.

Fast forward to contemporary London, where Marcus has fallen for Phoebe Taylor, a young employee at Sotheby's. She decides to become a vampire, too, and though the process at first seems uncomplicated, the couple discovers that the challenges facing a human who wishes to be a vampire are no less formidable in the modern world than they were in the 18th century. The shadows that Marcus believed he'd escaped centuries ago may return to haunt them both - for ever.

A passionate love story and a fascinating exploration of the power of tradition and the possibilities for change,
Time's Convert will delight fans of the All Souls trilogy and all readers of magic, the supernatural, and romance.


  1. I would rather read an eBook than listen to an audiobook. I also get way to distracted and end up not listening to the story.

    Your "Friday 56" sound an interesting read!

    Here's my Book Blogger Hop!

    Here's my Friday 56!

  2. Time's Convert sounds like an interesting book. I want to read it but also feel like I should finish the the original trilogy first. Enjoy your current read!

    1. Yes, it references events from the trilogy, so I think you do need to read that first. I can recommend them all! :)

  3. I still need to read the second book in the first trilogy. :-) Happy weekend!

  4. I do want to read this one but I'm waiting for a price reduction. I might have to wait for the paperback so that the ebook price drops too. BTW, ebooks all the way! I'm featuring The Military Wife by Laura Trentham from my review stack this week. Happy reading!

  5. I am eager to read Time's Convert. I enjoyed the earlier books in the series. I hope you are enjoying it!

    I would have to say e-books as well. I do enjoy audiobooks from time to time, but I have that little problem of a wandering mind too.

    I hope you have a great weekend, Nicki.

  6. I like the time period and location this is set in. Sounds like a good read.
