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?
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.
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. :)
