Sunday Post / It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by The Book Date.


Good Morning, Everyone!


What Am I Currently Reading?

Here's a little fun fact for everyone: I used to be a Trekker! I grew up watching reruns of the original series, The Next Generation, and Deep Space Nine. Then I quickly left the franchise right after the campy Voyager series debuted in the mid-1990s. While I would no longer consider myself a Trekker by any means, I do occasionally watch an episode or two of the old series on Netflix. This year, I've found myself in a Star Trek mood after watching the first season of Star Trek: Discovery (I don't recommend it to anyone!), which resulted in me buying a few $.99 old Star Trek tie-in eBook. As you can see from the photo above I'm going to be reading Star Trek: The Captain's Oath by Christopher L. Bennett, which I'd received a review copy from Gallery Books just a few days ago. Pockets Books used to publish the Star Trek books, but this year Gallery Books took over the franchise. "The Captain's Oath" looks like a fun read.

Next, I'm planning on reading The Son by Philip Meyer, which is a title I'd mentioned about in last week's post. Originally, I wanted to read it at the end of last week, but I ended up reading an eBook instead.

In the Mail

Lionsgate Home Entertainment kindly sent me the Blu-ray of the horror film Leprechaun Returns. (The review link is in this post.) The books sent to me in the mail last week were Cari Mora by Thomas Harris and Star Trek: The Captain's Oath by Christopher L. Bennett. I've already mentioned I'll be reading The Captain's Oath this week. Over the weekend, I'd read Cari Mora and my review for it will be posted soon.

  1. I'm a former Trekker too. At one time, I would read a couple of those tie-ins each month. I only kept the ones by authors I was familiar with because of their other books. Barbara Hambly and Diane Duane come to mind. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  2. Ha! Voyager was the show that really drew me into becoming a Star Trek fan, after years of making fun of my husband for watching it, although I also liked Patrick Stewart in Next Generation! Just goes to show you can't please everyone! I then went on to DS9, Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, etc. Recently disappointed to find out that the series Dark Matter was canceled.

  3. I’m not a Trekker but I enjoyed TNG, Voyager and Discovery, not so much Enterprise or DS9 or the original. I am looking forward to the TNG reboot.

    Have a great reading week
