This fun weekly book meme was created by J.Kaye’s Book Blog, but Sheila from One Person’s Journey Through a World of Books has taken over hosting duties. It’s a great way to not only keep track of what you are reading and have read, but to let others know of any great books coming up.
Read last week:
Linger by Maggie Stiefvater – Okay, I HAD to read this as soon as it arrived. Amazing. Just as good as Shiver.
Paul is Undead by Alan Goldsher – Freaking hilarious!
Okay, here’s the thing: when I select which books I want to read I find that I never get those books read. So this is a list of books from which I will choose. Since I only read one book last week, my goal this week is to read three. It’s supposed to be fairly rainy, so the odds are good.
Wicked Girls: A Novel of the Salem Witch Trials by Stephanie Hemphill – A friend wants to borrow this (I’m going to read it, Amy, I swear!) so I’m hoping to get to it this week.
Alex Van Helsing: Vampire Rising by Jason Henderson – Van Helsing as a teen. Kinda cool, eh?
If You Follow Me by Malena Watrous – This one has been on my review shelf for a while (bad, bad blogger!). It’ll be a change from the paranormal and YA binge I seem to be on.
Newspaper Blackout by Austin Kleon – I don’t read a lot of poetry, even though I write it. This volume of poems written by blacking out words from New York Times articles looks amazing. I’ll be hosting a giveaway once I read it.
The Whisperers by John Connolly – I loved Connolly’s The Reapers and thought it was so unique for the genre. Hoping this one lives up to my expectations.
Those are the books I’ll be picking from this week.
