It's Monday, What are you reading?

J.Kaye hosts this wonderful meme.

Click on titles for my reviews or more info on the book.

Read this past week:
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
Candor by Pam Bachorz
The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong
Dancing With Ana by Nicole Barker

Currently reading:
Fire by Kristin Cashore
Assiniboin Girl by Kathi Wallace
Undercover by Beth Kephart

Rampant by Diana Peterfreund
Violet Wings by Victoria Hanley
Crash Into Me by Albert Borris
The Family Bones by Kimberly Raiser
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

And I'm behind again! *sigh* As usual I should say. I added Shiver to that list because it's overwhelmingly winning in my current poll.

Okay updates:

  • I now have 5 books in the pot for my August Comment contest: Dancing with Ana, Candor, Heartsinger, Fade to Blue, and T'Aragam. At this rate, it's looking like I may only finish 10 books. I may throw some duplicate books into the pot if things start looking grim at the end of the month.
  • Hush, Hush contest ends this Saturday at NOON CST. Last week I had some entries coming in the second part of Saturday. This just allows me to pull during the day when I'm awake, instead of staying up late until midnight. So sorry guys if it's confusing.
  • I'm working on a new poll idea. Trying to keep a poll running when the old one goes away.
Speaking of which: Poll results!
  1. Shiver (63 votes!)
  2. Beautiful Creatures (17 votes!)
  3. Bran Hambric (14 votes!)
  4. Ballad (8 votes!)
  5. ghostgirl Homecoming (6 votes!)
  6. Tie (3 votes each) for Dragon Spear and Ice
I'm obviously behind, so this coming week's poll will be more geared towards feedback.

Thanks for tuning in! Hopefully I can knock out more than 4 books this week before school starts.


  1. Wow you read a lot. I can't wait for Hush, Hush and Candor just keeps getting closer to the top of my TBR pile. I have heard that it is pretty good. Also, I definitely voted for Shiver. I loved it. Hopefully you will too!

  2. Crash into me!! u have a really awesome week ahead :D

  3. Whoa you read a LOT! You have so many great books to look forward to.

  4. But please read more--20 maybe? *you know what I'm hinting at* Pretty pleease?

  5. I voted for Shiver too lol. I'm still waiting on my copy of Dancing with Ana to arrive and Hush, Hush is on my wishlist.
    Have a great reading week :-)
    Here's my Monday post

  6. Wow 4 books in a week!
    Can't wait for your review of Rampant!

  7. I just read a review of Undercover that raved about it. I added it to my never-ending list of books to acquire one way or another!

  8. You finished 4 books in a week?! I'm soooo jealous! :) I can't even finish one due to my neverending schoolwork. :(

  9. I'm seeing Dancing With Ana mentioned a lot. I look forward to your thoughts on it. You do well if you read four books per week. I read four in the past two weeks. Sometimes life just interferes. :)
    Have fun before school starts.

  10. You just read Hush, Hush and you'll be reading Shiver next??

    I'm insanely jealous!

  11. My gosh, if I posted every Monday what I was reading it wouldn't change for three or four weeks!!! I just can't seem to read as quickly as I 'd like.

  12. I can't wait for Fire, Rampant, and Shiver. Happy reading!

  13. You're still awesome in my book Kristen!

    All the ones you got to last week I have yet to read but really want to =) I haven't visited the reviews yet but I'm working on it.

  14. Shiver was fantastic. I read it in one sitting.I think you'll really like it.


    I am way behind too. GO KRISTEN.

  16. I'm reading Violet Wings right now. It's fun! Good luck with all of the reading.

  17. Looks like you got some great books coming up to read. I read Crash into Me and it was good.

  18. I just finished Coffeehouse Angel and it was a cute romantic comedy. I'm currently reading Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston. Very good so far. After that I am going to read Candor by Pam Bachorz, Give up the Ghost by Megan Crewe, and Dreaming Anastasia by Joy Preble.

  19. Read Rampant!

    Do it, do it, do it. Come on Kristin, UNICORNS.

  20. Ahh I just got Hush, Hush so now I am going to start it and hopefully finish it soon. I have heard so much about it and I can't wait for your review to see if you agree with everyone else.

  21. I hear Shiver is really good! I can't wait to read it, and I can't wait to hear what you think of it!

  22. Good luck! Looks like you have lots of good reads coming up.

    My TBR pile is actually pretty low so I need to get some new books!

  23. Great reading week. Looking forward to your thoughts on Hush, Hush and Dancing with Ana - they are book sitting here waiting for me to read.

  24. Great books once again this week!

  25. I liked your Hush Hush review.
    I loved Fire.
    and I can't wait to read Rampant and Shiver!


Leave some love!
