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.

Blarg! I only read ONE book this week. *shakes head* I know I'll do better next week...

Read this past week:
I, Coriander by Sally Gardner (audio)

Currently Reading:
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
Anastasia's Secret by Susanne Dunlap
Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink
On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta (audio)

Upcoming:
Give Up the Ghost by Megan Crewe
Cleopatra's Daughter by Michelle Moran
Medina Hill by Trilby Keny

Poll Results!
Last week I asked:
My fiance reads mainly adult sci-fi and fantasy. Would you be interested in reading reviews by him?

36% said: Sure, why not?
11% said: No way.
51% said: You have a fiance who reads! Of course I want to read his reviews!

So I will be coming up with some sort of name for his review times and he's working feverishly on a few different reviews. :) He's excited. Look for that new feature in a few weeks.

Updates:

  • I am working on a huge awards post.. it's huge. I'm not joking. It's been 6 weeks and I keep getting nominated more! Gah! I really need to include it in this meme I think.
  • Things are getting stressful. I feel a bit overwhelmed with the wedding stuff. Hopefully I can read a few books.. maybe.
  • Check out my ongoing contests by looking right below my banner. :)

  6. ALmost every book you listed is in my TBR pile, so I probably should assume I will like the others and add those to my TBR list.
    Mine is here: http://rundpinne.blogspot.com/2009/09/what-are-you-reading-monday_28.html

  8. Yes, for some reason, I only finished one book last week too! Other things seem to crowd in on my reading time.

    I finished "It's Not Your Mother's Bridge Club," and the review is posted on my Rainy Days and Mondays blog at http://laurel-rain-snow.blogspot.com/

    Today, I blogged about the book I'm in the midst of now...Jacquelyn Mitchard's "No Time to Wave Goodbye," which follows the Cappadora family(from "The Deep End of the Ocean")once the children are grown.

  12. I've found that if I include my awards on the Monday post it keeps me from getting behind.
    You've got some great books this week. Happy reading.

  13. I just finished A Sweet Disorder, which I'm about to go review on my blog. Last night I tried to start something like 3 different books and all of them were a 'Failed to Finish'. I was so disappointed! But then I started Torched and it's not too bad. :)

  18. I ordered Shiver and it just came today so will be reading it soon. Also can't wait to read your fiance's reviews.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I really want to read Anastasia's Secret also! And I think it's great that your fiance is going to do some reviews -- my hubby would never do that, not in a million years -- but then he reads the same books over and over so the reviews would be very limited :-)

  20. Shiver was a fun read! I can't wait to get a copy of Anastasia's Secret.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I'm sure your wedding will be wonderful! Hope you're not stressing too much.

  30. Hang in there, K! Some of us are just lazy to get wed: mine involved a dance-off between internet ministers, a rocky outcropping in Malibu, and burgers after. We wore jeans. But I'm sure our moms were a bit miffed at being left out, although mine won't let on.
