I'm a little disappointed in myself.. only 2 books read, but I'm halfway or more through three others.. I'm hoping for more reading this week. :-D

In other news, my husband has a job interview tomorrow. Cross your fingers, pray, or sacrifice a small animal *cough* or umm cookie that he gets this job. :-D


  1. I loved Thirteen Reasons Why. I look forward to your review.

  2. Weren't you saying you were teaching a class in the evenings recently? With as busy as you sound, two books is still pretty good. Here's to hoping you have an outstanding reading week. *raises glass of dr pepper*

    BTW, Jekel loves Hyde sounds delicious!

  3. You are reading Thirteen reasons Why.... I think I need to grab that off my shelf and read it this week as well. I keep forgetting it is there!

    Have a great reading week! :)

  4. I will be sending happy thoughts for your husband's interview.

    This is my first time here and can I just say that I love your blog? The colors, layout and graphics just made me calm yet happy as soon as I got here.

    'nuff gushing, happy reading!

  5. Good luck to your hubby on the job interview! I'm really interested to hear what you think of Jekel Loves Hyde, I've been hearing a lot about it. Good luck this week reading more!

  6. I only read two also. Just added Cinderella Society to my TBR.
    Here's my Monday

  7. Best of luck to your husband with his interview-I loved the movie for Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants.

  8. Hope it's good news for your hubby's job interview. I'm looking forward to your review on Meridian, it has been on my wishlist for a while.
    Happy reading :-)

  9. Jekel Loves Hyde is one of those books I can't wait to read. I loved Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side. I liked Meridian also.

    A Match Made in High School and The Cinderella Society are both on my TBR list.

    Here is my Monday list.

  12. Can't wait to hear what you think of a Match Made in High School!

  13. I have never read The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants or even seen the movie. I should really pick it up sometime!

    I wish you and your husband good luck!

  14. I will gladly sacrifice a cookie in the hopes your husband lands this job! Cinderella Society looks like a great YA read.

  15. Don't be diappointed - 2 books read would be an achievement for me! And I know how busy you have been lately.

    You have a couple of Charles Ogden coming up - i hope you enjoy them. I have heard of Jekyl loves Hyde, sounds interesting.

    Here my Its Monday! post

  16. One of students reviewed Thirteen Reasons and I have seen it making the rounds at school. The Cinderella Society looks interesting and Jekel loves Hide really sounds like a must read. Have a great week reading, and my fingers and toes are all crossed for the hubby.

  17. I want to read Meridian and 13 reasons why is on my tbr. I hope you enjoy The sisterhood of the Traveling Pants!!! I'm sending positive thoughts that your husband does well on his interview : )

  18. Hope your husband's interview goes fantastic! The Shakespeare title sounds interesting.

  19. I am looking forward to your reviews on 13 Reasons Why and Jekel Loves Hyde! I am behind on my reading challenges but I always start the year slow.

  20. Nice list of books!

    Here's mine this week:

    Hope you have a great reading week! :D

  21. Best of luck to your husband. Happy reading this week. SInce I have only heard of one of these titles I will look into the others.

  22. Oh, some of these titles really grabbed me! The Cinderella Society sounds like something I might like.

    Here's mine:

  23. It always amazes me when people can read more than one book at a time! It's so hard for me to focus. Maybe if I try a fiction and a non-fiction?
    You have a good list coming up for this week.

  24. You have some really fun books coming up! I hope you enjoy them :)

  25. I enjoyed 13 Reasons Why and listened to it on Audio as well-I'll be interested to read what you think.

  26. I have Sunshine sitting on my shelf, I'm just not sure when I'll get to read it. I hear Jekel Loves Hyde is really good as well!

  27. The list of books you're reading always makes me jealous. Yes - always - no kidding about that! I am really looking forward to hear what you think of Jekel Loves Hydes as well as Thirteen Reasons Why. Both sounds absolutely amazing to me!

    Do stop by my site here when you got the time.

    Have a pleasant week!

  28. I only read 2 books last week too, sometimes life get in the way. My daughter is looking over my shoulder and wants to read every book on your list. She's headed to the library right after school. :)

  29. Some of the books you're reading sound great so I'll be looking forward to reading your reviews.

    I hope you have a great week :o)

  30. Thirteen Reasons Why has been on my TBR list since it was first published. Good luck with your reading this week.I'm hoping to finish more this week than I did last. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that your husband get the job.

    Happy reading!

  31. These look good! I have been interested in Thirteen Reasons Why for quite a while.

  32. i was reading your tweets this weekend and you seem to not like ginger high all that much. lol i wanted to read it because i heard it's written by a 13 year old. but i can't wait to read your review on it. i read and watched the movie for sisterhood of the traveling pants back in high school but i don't remember the plot. can't wait to read what you think of it as well. happy reading :)

    and good luck to your husband for his interview :)

  33. Looks like a great week. I didn't have the best reading week last week so hoping to pick up the pace this week. Have a great week !

  34. Jekel Loves Hyde sounds interesting :), and I can't wait to read The Cinderella Society by Kay Cassidy since is in my Debut Author Challenge :) Hope to get the book soon :)

    Oh! and good luck to your hubby on his job interview!


  35. I read Sunshine last year and really loved the story. Although, I have read mixed reviews on the book. The thing is, this book was written before many of the vamp books that are out reads a bit different. Again, I liked it a lot. I hope you enjoy the read. I look forward to knowing how you like it.

    Have a great week!!!

  36. Oh, can't wait to read Cinderella Society. I'm trying to keep up with all the Tenners, and they have some amazing debut books out, I have yet to be disappointed!

    Have a great week!

  37. Two books completed and four on the go sounds pretty good to me. As long as you're enjoying them. I really hope hubby lands that job, that kind of stress is difficult for a family.
    Have a goo week.

  38. Jekel Loves Hyde is awesome. I just finished that. So gooood. And I really need to start A Match Made in High School soon. :)

    I don't know if you entered the Holey Donuts giveaway or not, but if you could check out this post and do so for my blog, it would mean a TON for my family and you can enter for the book afterwards too if you wish (White Cat by Holly Black ARC)!:


Leave some love!
