It's Monday, Here's What I'm Reading

Monday, January 18, 2010

What Are you Reading on Mondays is a weekly meme posted by J. Kaye.

Those pesky Mondays keep showing up, which means it is once again time for posting about what was accomplished last week and what reading I hope to accomplish this week.

Sadly, I was not a very productive reader finishing only two books, Four Things My Geeky-Jock-of-a-Best-Friend Must Do in Europe by Jane Harrington, and  Wintergirls by Laurie Halse, Anderson. On the positive side, I did review both books plus completed a review on The Maze Runner by James Dashner, which I finished reading last week. To see all three reviews check out my reviews page.


Currently, I am reading Jack Tumor by Anthony McGowan. This book was originally published in England by Doublday in 2006 in a slightly diffferent form and under the title Henry Tumor. It was released in America last year. Hector, the main character is strange and the premise of the book is even stranger (a talking tumor named Jack). It is humorous in a British sort of way and contains quite a bit of bloody English phrases.

What I Plan to Read This Week

1. The Dragonfly Pool by Eva Ibbotson
2. Savvy by Ingrid Law

Still in My Pile

1. Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow by Jessica Day George
2. The Fortunes of Indigo Skye by Deb Caletti
3. Impossible by Nancy Werlin
4. Tales From Outer Suburbia by Shaun Tan

What an excellent list! Savvy and Tales from Outer Suburbia are both very enjoyable. The others--well, I guess they're still on my list, too...a list that's always growing. Sigh. BTW, I think a book trailer project (in lieu of a report) is a GREAT idea. :)
