It's Monday Here's What I'm Reading

Monday, January 3, 2011

It's the  first Monday in 2011 and what a great way to start this first week of the new year but with Shelia @ One Person's Journey Through a World of Books fun Monday meme. 

Unfortunately, I am sorry to say that I am not looking forward to this Monday, since it's back to work today. I am really going to miss all the free time I have been spending reading.

Teenie by Christopher Grant
Emako Blue by Brenda Woods
No Way Out by Peggy Kerns  

The Lost Weekend by Savita Kalhan
Real Mermaids Don't Wear Toe Rings by Helene Boudreau

Patch by Mucheru Njaga
Pricilla the Great by Sybil Nelson 
Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly
Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH by Robert C. O'Brien

Reviews Posted:

Jumper Chronicles Quest for Merlin's Map by W. C. Peever

Tempestuous by Lesley Livingston

Real Mermaid Don't Wear Toe Rings by Helene Boudreau

Cloaked by Alex Flinn

I have quite a few reviews to write  and hope to get them done this week.  I also need to get a new audio book started and am not sure what to choose next. Any suggestions? 

Finally, there is only one more day left to enter the final giveaway in my 21 Day Blogoversary & Birthday Bash for a signed ARC copy of Cloaked by Alex Flinn, here.

Hi Jan, thanks for visiting my blog. I left some info about The Last New Year's Eve of Humanity, but I don't know if it's translated into English.

You read a lot! What a relaxing holiday. But life calls and it's back to work.

Happy reading!

Back to school...I am not dreading it, because I love my students and my job, but I will miss the reading time and the relaxation. February will be here soon!

Have a great week back!

Sad getting a reality check with return to work :(

Like you, I have quite a few book reviews to get done; good luck with yours! Revolution is on my wishlist, heard lots of good things about it.

Wonderful reading list! Happy reading. :D

What I'm reading this week

Mrs Nimby was one of my favorites as a kid.

The mermaid book sounds great.

Melissa said...

Ooooh Mermaid! I'm dying to read that one! I would suggest an audio book, but I'm not the best when it comes to audio books ;)

Nikki-ann said...

You've done really well!

It's back to work tomorrow for me... Urgh.

Nina said...

oooh I want to read Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly too. I got high hopes for that one. :P

Aleksandra said...

Wow, you've read a lot :) Have a great week!

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Wow! You were able to get a lot of reading done last week, I can definitely see why you don't want to go back to work this week. ;o) Hopefully it will be better than expected!

Happy New Year! Have a fabulous reading week and if you get a second, here’s what I’m reading this week at There’s A Book!

Cat said...

Happy New Year! I hope the going back to work isn't too hard.
A great list of reading - keep hearing good things about Revolution.

I was back at work today too Jan... of course, I was only off for the weekend... no bonus time off but I feel like I could really use it. :)

You had an awesome reading week! I love days when I can just relax and read.

Renee G said...

It's amazing how much you've been reading.
I'm impressed.

I love the name of Teenie! My grandmother is sometimes called that, more from her name than her size, although she is pretty teenie in size too! I also like the title of the Mermaid book. I'm going to have to check it out! Enjoy your week!

I liked the start of the Jumper Chronicles series too. I didn't get as much reading last week. I have been sick with a cold and I was traveling.

Julie said...

Good job! Looking forward to your Teenie and Revolution reviews. I'm interested in reading those books.

AmandaRose said...

Looks like you got a lot of books read! Can't wait to see the reviews! Hope work wasn't too bad!

Sunnysmileqt said...

You had a great reading week. I'm excited to read your review of Cloaked. I really enjoy Alex Flinn's books. Hope you have a great week and Happy New Year!!

Staci said...

Your list of books read is pretty darn impressive lady!!

Crystal - Princess of Pop Culture said...

What a great week! I'm envious, I wish I'd finished even half as many! Going back to work is definitely disappointing when it keeps you from reading, I feel that way every week.

Sue Jackson said...

Wow, you read a lot last week!!

Enjoy your books this week - sorry it's back to work time!


Christina T said...

I still haven't read the sequel to Wondrous Strange although I liked that first book.

I enjoyed your review of Real Mermaids Don't Wear Toe Rings. I definitely plan to read it after seeing how much you liked it!

I hope you enjoy your reading this week and that your first few days back at school have been good.
