Its Monday Here's What I'm Reading

Monday, July 19, 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?

This was an interesting week. It started with the Once Upon a Read-a-thon which was a lot of fun and ended with the Book Extravaganza which was a huge success. Thanks to all who entered.

Books read/review:

Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce
Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken
Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready
Voices of Dragons by Carrie Vaughn  
The Gardener by S.A. Bodeen 
The Last Words of Will Wolfkin by Steven Knight

I am currently reading:
The Passage by Justin Cronin 

This one might take a few weeks it is slow going, but interesting. Definitely not a one sitting read.

This week I bought some and borrowed some.

Lucy by Laurence Gonzales (bought)
Prophecy of the Sisters by  Michelle Zink (bought)
A Kiss in Time by Alex Flinn (bought)
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare (bought)
Theodore Boone Kid Lawyer by John Grisham (bought)
The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness (borrowed)
Claire de Lune by Christine Johnson (borrowed)
White Cat by Holly Black (borrowed)
Crashed by Robin Wasserman (borrowed)

So what are you reading?

you've had a great week. I keep thinking of picking up The Passage every time I see the cover @ the book shop - but I figure if i wait a bit, my library will get it in ;)

I wanna read almost all the books you read this last week! Especially Brightly Woven & Voices of Dragons! And I LOVED Patrick Ness' series. So worth the time taken to read them.

I've heard great things about The Passage, and I can't wait to get the chance to read it myself!

Have a wonderful week :)

Bailey said...

The Passage is definitely a popular read this summer! I look forward to your review. A friend recently loaned me the new Grisham title, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. Happy reading!

I have Sisters Red here, too. If I get my other books read, I may dig into this one.

Crystal said...

Great week - I want to read Sisters Read and have Brightly Woven to read this week (thanks for reminding me). As for the ones you bought/borrowed. I loved Theodore Boone, Kid Lawyer and White Cat.

Have another great reading week!

Katie said...

A Kiss in Time is a cute book! I'm currently reading Cate of the Lost Colony by Lisa Klein, she is one of my favorite authors!

Have a wonderful week. :)

Sarah (My World of Books) said...

I keep seeing the passage everywhere. I am getting very curious about this novel! And it looks like you have some great reads coming. Have a great week!

Just read your mini-review for Sisters Red and now I'm even more excited to pick it up for Once Upon a Week! Sounds so good!

And now you've got two of my favorite authors in your borrowed/bought list - Cassandra Clare and Holly Black! Love them both!

Hope you have a fabulous reading week and thanks so much for stopping by There's A Book earlier!

You had a great reading week! I really should get Sisters Red! Happy reading!

Definitely some great reads that you have here. I'm looking forward to reading Brightly Woven and Sisters Red - both sound so awesome! Am also reading a book that's not a one-sitting kind of book at the moment. :)

Sheila (Bookjourney) said...

I am listening to The Passage on Audio and yes.... slow going. :)

Have a good week!

Samantha said...

I'm looking forward to your review on The Passage. I'm waiting for it at my library. I also have Grisham's Theodore Boone book on my list as well. Hope you enjoy them - have a great week!

Looks like a great week! Enjoy The Passage, as I've read nothing but good reviews on that one. Happy reading!

Staci said...

They all look great...looking forward to your thoughts on The Passage.

Sue Jackson said...

as you know, Jamie just finished City of Bones and loved it!

I'm dying to read The Passage. I asked for it for my birthday (Friday) - fingers crossed!

I keep hearing great things about it, though it does sound like a hefty one.
