Its Monday Here's What I'm Reading

Monday, December 13, 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? 

Well I am on day 13 of my 21 Day Blogoversary & Birthday Bash and am having a blast. This week the fun really begins since I will start announcing winners on Dec 15. If you have not yet entered there is still time to do so. To see a list of all the books being given away with links to all the days you can go here and click on each day's link and fill out the forms.

Book Finished This Week:

 The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness 

This is the second book in the Chaos Walking series and all I can say is wow! The audio is fantastic and the story incredible.

Mercy by Rebecca Lim

This is the beginning of a new angel series and is quite exciting. 

Clarity by Kim Harrington

Loved the characters in this and the plot was totally engaging. A fast read.

Desires of the Dead by Kim Derting

A good sequel to Derting's first book The Body Finder. You can check out my review below.


Desires of the Dead by Kim Derting

Keeper by Kathi Appelt 

Beautiful prose with lots of mermaid mythology.

 All but one of the books (The Ask and The Answer)  read and reviewed this week are books I am giving away during my 21 Day B&B Bash.

Currently listening to:

Monster of Men by Patrick Ness

Hi Jan! Thanks for visiting our blog. *glomps* I forgot that I'm supposed to finish The Never Letting Go... but anyhoo, those are awesome books you've read last week. I can't wait for Clarity and Desires of the Dead. Especially DotD! I miss Jay and Violet already. Lol, you're very lucky to score an ARC. :">

Cheers - and have a lovely day Jan!

I've just started The Knife of Never Letting Go...I was a little put off by the spelling at first...but have really started to like it! Sounds like you really like the series! I heard there's a prequel available electronically?
