It's Monday Here's What I Am Reading

Monday, September 27, 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 the question: What are you reading? 
Although this wasn't a great reading week (again for me) and I am really missing the lazy days of summer when I was able to finish about a book a day, I did manage to post a few more reviews than usual. 
I also have a guest post coming up in honor of banned book week, so be on the lookout for that. 
I will also be starting a new feature on the Book Battle page that will highlight the books being read by the kids who will compete at the end of the year. The Featured Book of the Week will start this Tuesday and will highlight a book a week with guest posts by some of the authors on the Book Battle list. Very exciting.

I've ordered Losing faith :) very much looking forward to it's arrival :)

This week I read books 2, 3, 4, 5 in the Tomorrow Series (starting with Tomorrow When the War Began). I love that series and had to re-read after watching the movie. Hope you enjoyed listening to the first one!

Oooh I can't wait to hear what you think of The Replacement! I've got so many books on my radar right now that it's been pushed back a wee bit, but I definitely look forward to getting to read it! :)

What did you think of Losing Faith? I thought it was quite well-written, and really interesting from a psychological perspective.
