It's Monday What Are You Reading?

Monday, August 16, 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? 

Last week went speedily by. I was able to get some good reading done as well as prepare myself for a brand new group of students who I will be meeting for the first time today. I am a bit behind in my reviews though and need to catch up this week.

Books read and reviewed:

Personal Demons by Lisa Desrouchers
Evernight by Claudia Gray
Manifest by Artist Arthur
Lucy by Laurence Gonzales (review this week of this amazing novel)
Beautiful Dead: Arizona (review this week gotta get the first one now)
Currently reading:

Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel

I received a few books this week for review and after reading my first Claudia Gray book, I bought the other two since I now know why everyone loves her Evernight series. So here is what I got:

For review:

Beautiful Dead: Arizona by Eden Maguire
Minder by Kate Kaynak
Fledgling by Mark A. Cooper


Hourglass by Claudia Gray
Stargazer by Claudia Gray
Infinite Days by  Rebecca Maizel

Unlike recent Mondays, I will be making my Monday rounds to see how everyone else's week went throughout the day and into the evening. I no longer have the luxury of spending all day  hopping around since it is back to school for me.

Finally, make sure you enter my followers Thank You Giveawayfor a chance to win your  choice of a $25 Amazon gift card or book from the Book Depository.   
So what great stories did you read this week?

Your week sounds really great! Good luck with it :)

Don't you just hate that when you get behind? I have the hardest time unless I write the review right away, but it always seems to happen at some point. Good luck with your new students and reviews!

I can't wait to see if you love Infinite Days as much as everyone else!

Have a fabulous reading week and thanks again for stopping by my site earlier!

Rhiana said...
