It's Monday Here's What I Am Reading

Monday, September 6, 2010

Happy Labor Day 

When I was growing up this was the last Monday and holiday before I went back to school. I always thought that this was the reason my parents and every other adult I knew celebrated. 

Now, it is the first holiday I get in the school year, and an extra day that I get to read. Yeah!

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? 

Here is what I read this week:

Plain Kate by Erin Bow
Girl Stolen by April Henry
Firelight by Sophie Jordan
Paranormalcy by Kirsten White

I also reviewed

Viral by Kathy Reichs

Currently listening to 
Inside Out by Maria Snyder

Hope everyone has a great Monday.

Ooooh. Firelight and Paranormalcy. I dont really read in the paranormal genre but both these books have kind of been calling out to me for some reason. (calling out through the internet - both arent available in Australia yet).

I'm reading a bunch of Aussie stuff :)

I don't usually read much paranormal stuff, but Paranormalcy intrigues me. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it.

I really want to read Paranormalcy and after reading your review of Girl, Stolen, I definitely want to read it as well.

Hope you enjoy Inside Out. I like Maria Snyder's books.

It looks like you are a fast reader. I think I'd love to read Girl Stolen.

I am currently reading Eating Animals (for a review and giveaway), and I have of course read a lot of children's book this week too.

On my to read list is Practical Glamour (which I will be giving away 2 copies of), and The Possibility of Everything by Hope Edelman.
I would like to invite you to Book Lover’s Blog Hop@Story Time Under the Stars. At the Book Lovers’ Blog Hop you can link up a book review and connect with other book reviewers.

Oh! So many great books on your list! I've seen Girl Stolen numerous times around the book blogosphere and I'm tempted to pick it up. I'm gonna check out your review first to see what you thought.

You've got a fabulous week ahead with Paranomalcy and Firelight. I hope you enjoy! And thanks for stopping by so often, I love seeing your comments! Have a fabulous reading week!
