It's Monday What Are You Reading?

This meme is hosted by Shiela at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books, and I want to give credit where credit is due so I want to let you know I heard about it through Bookworming in the 21st Century. The point is basically to share what you've reading, what you're reading and what you think you're going to read.

Read This Week:
The Sorcerer King (Faerie Path, #3)by Frewin Jones
The Dead-Tossed Waves (The Forest of Hands and Teeth, #2)by Carrie Ryan
Stitches by David Small
Heist Society by Ally Carter
Children of the Sea, Volume 2 by Daisuke Igarashi
Buddha Volume 1: Kapilavastu (Buddha)by Osamu Tezuka
Rampant (Killer Unicorns, #1)by Diana Peterfreund

Currently Reading:
Bite Me (Love Story, #3)by Christopher Moore
It Must've Been Something I Ate: The Return of the Man Who Ate Everything by Jeffrey Steingarten (I am actually not sure that I am going to finish this one right now; more on that later.)

Up Next:
Bloodhound (Beka Cooper, #2) by Tamora Pierce
Fade to Blue by Sean Beaudoin
Another Faust by Daniel Nayeri, Dina Nayeri
The Naughty List (The Naughty List, #1) by Suzanne Young

So these are what remains of the forty library books I had out last week. I came home from work on Monday and got rid of everything that wasn't a book I had been waiting for to be released or on a hold list for forever and this is pretty much what I was left with. My plan is to finish these last few books. (I haven't actually decided on the Steingarten book, I was thinking of sharing this with my honey which is why it hasn't gone back even though it doesn't fit the criteria outlined above.) My request list at the library has been whittled down to books that have not been released yet (which will hopefully keep me from being slammed all at once.)

After I finish these last few books my plan is to begin reading the stuff I own. I have all these great arcs I got at work, stuff I bought at ICon (my local science fiction/fantasy convention) plus stuff I bought at a crazy shopping trip to the Strand on Thursday and at my local comic book shop Saturday (Free Comic Book day, woo hoo) and things friends have loaned me. I hope I can at least catch up with myself and try not to get as much stuff out of the library for a while. Wish me luck.


  1. Argh can't wait for my copy of The Dead-Tossed Waves to arrive! So excited for it.

    Here is my Monday:

  2. I know how you feel... I have a huge pile of books waiting to be read and somehow I keep adding to it! Unfortunately, I don't seem to read books as fast as you, so it may take me some time to get through my ever-growing pile! :D

    I hope you had a good weekend.

  3. Wow! You read a lot this week! I hope you really love Bite Me, I've been wanting to read it for awhile now.

    Love your site by the way! So cute! If you have time you should add a follower/subscribe button so people can read your posts in a reader. I'd love to "follow" your site! Let me know if you need any help, I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have!

  4. You read a lot of books last week! I have to get to Heist Society - I think it looks so good!
