It Monday Here's What I'm Reading

Monday, July 12, 2010
It's Monday What Are You Reading is a wonderful weekly meme hosted by Shelia  at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books, and asks you to answer the question: What are you reading?

I had a really good reading week and did some fun things with my reviews.

i so don't do spooky by Barrie Summy (In the Middle Monday Book Look review)
Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Reeds Brennan 
Princess of Glass by Jessica Day George
Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston  Darklight by Lesley Livingston  (Living and Loving Lesley Livingston combined review)
Firespell by Choe Neill (Show Me Five Saturday Review)
Skinned by Robin Wasserman 

IQ The White  House by Roland Smith 

I also did my first book cover recreate. I have seen other blogger participate in recreating a book cover and always loved looking at what beautiful covers they came up with so when Cindy over at Princess Bookie  challenged us to recreate Holly Cupala's Tell Me a Secret cover I gave it a shot. Mine is far from the best, but I really enjoyed doing this. Make sure you check out all the recreated covers.

I only got a couple new book in the mail this week but I go quite a few books at the library. I love that I can reserve books online and have my library email me when they are ready for me to pick up.
Here are all the book I got.

Heartless by Anne Elisabeth Stengl (bought)
IQ The White House by Roland Smith (bought)
Voices of Dragons by Carrie Vaughn (library)
Sisters Red by Jackson Pierce (library)


Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston (library)
Darklight by Lesley Livingston (library)
Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken (library)
Demon's Covenet by Sarah Rees Brennan (library)
Firespell by Chole Neill (library)
Angelology by Danielle Trussoni (library)
Dream Dark Silksinger by Laini Taylor (library)
Skinned by Robin Wasserman (library)

So I have lots to keep me busy this week, which is great since I will be participating in  Once Upon a Read-a-Thon hosted by Pure Imagination, Reading Angel and Candace's Book Blog.

and will also be participating in The Book Extravaganza being hosted by The Neverending Shelf and Bookworming in the 21st Century.  Make sure you check back as I will be hosting a giveaway as part of the Book Extravaganza.

Whoa, I am getting tired just thinking about this week! So what are you reading?

I'm always amazed at how many books you can read in a week. Of course, I manage about one - on a good week two! LOL It's been gettin harder for me to concentrate.

I'm reminded that I have one of Barrie Summer's books to read - forgot about it. I was going to read it and put in in the library...should get to it.

I hope you enjoy Sisters Red, I've heard good things about it.

I won Angelology through and was glad to have read it. I found it an enjoyable read, despite the really long chapter in the middle (just push through it!).

Crystal (I totally paused!) said...

Mmmm, I have been wanting to read Angelology since I first saw the cover. Hope you enjoy it!
