It's Monday Here's What I Am Reading

Monday, May 3, 2010
This Monday Meme is sponsored by  Shelia at One Persons Journey Through a World of Books. Its a chance to post about what you been reding and what you plan to read. It is also a great way to network with other bloggers, which why I enjoy Mondays a lot more than I use to.

Books Read:

Mistwood by Leah Cypess
Storm Glass by  Maria V. Snyder
Smile by  Raina Telgemeier

I also finished listening to my very first a full cast audio book  Graceling by  Kristin Cashore  and all I can say is wow, why haven't I been listening to books before this.

I posted my version of mini reviews. I got the idea from Kate at The Neverending Shelves. Thanks Kate!

Airhead by Meg Cabot
Wabi A Hero’s Tale by Joseph Bruchac

Currently Reading:

Marcelo in the Real World by Francisco X. Stork

Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme hosted by The Printed Page.

I also got quite a few new books this week. It seems like every time I went to the mailbox, there was another new package of goodies. Take a look:

I also got an iPad. I am so excited. I really haven't played with it much, but I think it is really cool toy. Since I have ventured into audio books I can now read books on this lovely little gem.

While you are here, don't forget to enter my Thank You Giveaway.
It end May 6. 

So what have you been reading?

How do you like the I-pad? You can surf the internet with it right? (low-tech here) as well as read downloads?

Maybe that's what I need instead of a new laptop. just to use on the couch, bed, for reading,,,,,looking at your blog, etc.

I've heard wonderful things about Marcelo in the Real World, I put it on my wishlist last week. So glad you loved Graceling, it was one of my favourite reads of 2009.

Love, love, love audiobooks, you get so much extra reading done while driving and doing housework. Enjoy your new found indulgence LOL

Have a wonderful week & happy reading :-)

I am currently reading Mistwood so I will wait to read your review till I am done.

You did get some fantastic books to read this week too. I just read Before I Fall and I really liked it. Whisper is on my TBR list.

Congrats on your iPad! I love my Kindle for e-reading and, although I am tempted by the iPad, have to content myself with laptop and Kindle lol

I'm going to have check out your review on Meg Cagot's Airhead. I love her adult books and always wanted to see how she was as an young adult author.

Jess said...

Congrats on the iPad, it looks like a ton of fun!

Andrea said...

Glad to see you liked Graceling on audio. I thought it was really well done.

And congrats on the ipad. Wow.

Sue Jackson said...

I'm drooling on the picture of your iPad!! I'm an Apple fan from way back, but my beloved iBook is getting very old (ancient in computer years).

Sounds like you had a great reading week. I'd like to read Marcelo in the Real World, too.

Thanks for your comment about The Wright 3 - I'll pass that onto Craig!

The1stdaughter said...

I'm beyond jealous at this point! If I could have an iPad it would just make my year! They look absolutely beautiful!

Loved your mini-reviews this week by the way...I think I left a comment (???). And I'm really interested in your review of Storm Glass.

Thanks for always being such a great reader of my site, it really means so much! Hope you have a fabulous reading week and I will see you around, I'm sure of it!

Ooh the IPad looks great - congratulations! And Graceling on audio huh/ I am going to have to watch for that one. I am a big audio fan :)

Rhiana said...

You have some fantastic books this week! I *adored* Before I Fall and I really hope you like that one and I am so jealous about The Karma Club! It isn't out in the UK until the end of June, but I do have it one pre-order! Enjoy!

Stacy said...

I thought Before I Fall was one of the best YA books I've read in awhile and should be on everyone's reading list that works with teens, is a teen, knows a teen, etc.....and oh, your ipad ~ i have ipad envy!!! all those buttons!
do you love it?
