It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (Sept. 19th, 2011)

This week did not go at all as planned. Big surprise there. ;)

I couldn't get motivated to start Firelight. Something kept holding me back. I think I'll hold on to it until next month. You'll see why. ;)

So, what did I read last week?

Graffiti Moon
by Cath Crowley

I have to say, this was absolutely fantastic! Even though I have read it, I still have every intent to add it to my collection when it releases next year. The only reason I have not released my review is because I am still not certain when I am suppose to do that. I got this through Net Galley, from Random House Children's Publishing. Trust me, though. This one is a keeper.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
by Ransom Riggs

This is moving much slower then I expected and I am finding myself pushing through it as if I am stuck in a swamp. Not my cup of tea. That's really too bad, because I was really anxious to read this book. *sigh* I am up to Chapter 6. There is still hope that this might get interesting. Things are starting to happen. But so far I would have to warn potential readers that if you aren't a fan of slow starters this might not be your book.

What I Hope To Read This Week:

First up, I need to finish Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, since it is the book we're reading for the Fall Book Club.

Once I am done with that I think my next book will be either Will Grayson, Will Grayson or I might read Love Story by Jennifer Echols. For anyone who's wondering: I'm saving a lot of the more fantasy / paranormal books on my reading list for next month. I have some (hopefully!) interesting things planned for October, but you're going to have to wait and see what they are. ;)

Anyway, thanks so much for dropping by. The list is short and sweet this week because I am already painfully behind, I'm having trouble finishing Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, and I might have company coming soon -- Jay is planning to visit. :D

So, how were your books last week? What are you hoping to read this week? I'd love to know. :)

    My IMM:

  4. Miss Peregrine's is one I keep picking up but then putting back down.

  5. I was so excited when I first heard about Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, but I keep seeing reviews saying it's disappointing, a letdown, not what the person expected, etc. :/

  6. Most of your books are on my wishlist.

    I'm reading three picture books a night with my children. That's making my list seem really long. I also got some longer books finished too. Please come see what I've read.

  7. Hey :) new follower. So Firelight isnt doing it for you? Shame. I really enjoyed it. I've heard mixed reviews about Peculiar Children.
    I'm reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone right now and I am loving it!

    Have a great week!
