It’s Monday! What are you reading?

19 Jul

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:
Paul is Undead by Alan Goldsher – Hil.Ar.Ious! Here’s my review.

Currently reading:
The Ask and The Answer by Patrick Ness – The second in Ness’ Chaos Walking trilogy. I’m actually enjoying this one much, much more than The Knife of Never Letting Go.

To Read:
Will this be the week that I not only read more than one book, but that I read what I say I’m going to read? Stay tuned to find out!

Promise by Kristie Cooke – I’m part of the blog tour for this one, so yeah, I better read it! Plus, it just looks soooooo good.

Newspaper Blackout by Austin Kleon –  This volume of poetry has been calling to me for weeks. ‘Bout time I answered it.

The Whisperers by John Connolly – This book isn’t YA or paranormal, which is good. Changing things up never hurt.

    I just borrowed The Knife of Never Letting go and hope to get to it this week. I didn’t know that it was a trilogy though. Promise sounds good hope you enjoy it. Have a great week.

      Yeppers, it’s a trilogy and I’ve been hearing the final book is AMAZING.

    Good luck, I hope you get lots of reading in.

    I’ve heard The Ask and the Answer is really good. I thought the first one was okay so I’ve been reluctant to delve into the sequel. I’m glad you’re enjoying it.

    Have a great reading week!

      I am enjoying The Ask and The Answer so much more than the first one. Seriously. I was reluctant too, which is why it took me over 2 months to start it. But it’s a quick, fascinating read.

    I haven’t heard of any of these books, so I’m looking forward to your reviews of them. I hope you have a good reading week, and my commiserations for Ciaran. I love Crows – not many people appreciate them but I have a soft spot for them. It’s terrible when a pet passes away.

      Thx. 🙂 He was a pretty special little guy.

    So everyone seems to love “Paul is Undead”; if not for the reviews, it would not have been a book that I would even THINK of reading, but I think I have to now.

    LOVE this:

    Will this be the week that I not only read more than one book, but that I read what I say I’m going to read?

    On my Monday this week, I just left off the “upcoming” because even though I “schedule” them, they never all seem to go off when they’re supposed to!

      I rarely end up reading what I plan on reading. But this week, dammit, I’m sticking to my guns! LOL
