It's Monday Here's What I've Been Reading

Monday, August 2, 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 pretty slow week reading and I am not sure exactly why? But I am afraid after this week that is going to be more the norm since I only have one and half more week before I will be back to school. 

Read this week:

Linger by Maggie Stiefvater
Adios Nirvana by  Conrad Wesselhoeft

Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
Sweet, Hereafter by Angela Johnson

Reviews posted:

A Kiss in Time by Alex Flinn
Poison Diaries by MaryRose Wood with the Duchess of Northumberland
Adios Nirvana by Conrad Wesselhoerft

Posts of Interest:

Once again I participated in a cover re-create, this time for the book You Wish by Mandy Hubbard, check out my version and then go see all the re-created covers and vote for your favorite at Princess Bookie. They are all awesome.

Since I went to see Ally Carter whose new book Only the Good Spy Young was recently released, I bought (and got signed)  all four of her  Gallagher Girls series:

Don't Judge a Girl by Her Cover
I'd Tell You, But The I'd Have to Kill You
Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy
Only the Good Spy Young

I also bought:

Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

and received for review from Traveling ARC Tours

Adios Nirvana by Conrad Wesselhoerft

Finally, I want to thank

Christine at Books are Life

Irene at This Miss Loves to Read

Lily at After the Fall

for passing along blogging awards. Ladies, I greatly appreciate your thinking of me and I also congratulate each of you on receiving the awards too.

So that was my week. What was your week like?

I enjoyed your review of The Poison Garden and A Kiss In Time. I haven't read The Poison Garden yet but I definitely plan to.

I look forward to hearing what you thought of Nightshade and Linger.

Have a great week!

I thought Linger was great. I still have 29 days before I go back to work and I know they will just fly past. My weekly report is here. Happy reading!

How is Linger? I have heard great things about Shiver but haven't heard much about Linger.

Have a great week of reading!

Crystal (I totally paused!) said...

You had a great week! I'm glad if I get one book in a week, lol. Hope this one is even better!

Teddyree said...

4 books is impressive :) Im excited when I read 2 or 3 LOL.
I read Linger last week and really enjoyed it, not quite as much as Shiver though. Happy reading this week!
