It's Monday Here's What I Am Reading/In My Mail Box

Monday, March 15, 2010
It's Monday What Are You  Reading is a weekly meme hosted by Shelia at One Person's Journey Through Books.  I also am combining this meme with another Mail Box Monday hosted by Kristi The Story Siren.

My spring break started Friday after parent teacher conferences and I have wasted no time getting in the groove. 
This week I finished ...

Secret Society by Tom Dolby (see review)
Dream Life by Lauren Mechling
Pastworld by Ian Beck (see review)
This World We Live In by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Eternal by Cynthia Leitich Smith 

I also acquire a much bigger TBR pile last week. 

From my school's Book Fair I bought ...

Smile by Raina Telgemeier
The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson
Standing Against the Wind by Traci L. Jones
The Youngest Templar Keeper of the Grail by Michael P. Spradlin
Killer Pizza by Greg Taylor
Dog Whisper Rescue by Nicolas Edwards
Bad Girls Don't Die by Katie Alender
The Musician's Daughter by Susanne Dunlap
Witch and Wizard by James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet

and two graphic novels (a first for me)

Maximum Ride by James Patterson
Amulet Book One: The Stonekeeper by Kazu Kibuishi


This World We Live In by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Eternal by Cynthia Leitich Smith
The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
Dead Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan
Sing Me To Sleep by Angela Morrison
Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins 

With so many great books I am having trouble deciding which one will be next. Thankfully, I have a whole week ahead of uninterrupted reading, so I can at least put a small dent in my pile. Check back next week to see which books I decide to read and manage to finish.

I just bought Maximum Ride. It was recommended to me by a 5th grader. I'm going to give it a try soon, then put it in my library.

You read a lot of books. You speed-read?

How wonderful to have a full week of reading ahead of you! And you have some great looking books in that TBR pile of yours! I can't wait for all the reviews!

Have a fabulous reading week and a wonderful break!

I loved the Maximum Ride graphic novel! I don't think I would have read anything by James Patterson anytime soon if I hadn't first read the MR graphic novels. I am actually kinda on pins and needles waiting for the next one to come out.

Have fun reading this week.
