  1. You got a lot of reading accomplished! Hope this week is as productive.

  2. I read Wings last summer (library book). It was enjoyable - I haven't read a book about faeries before.

    Did you like Holiday Grind?

  3. Kristen - I can only hope this coming week will be as productive, but I suspect this past week was a last hurrah before classes.

    Mary - I've read 2 others in recent memory. Hunter's Moon - O.R. Melling and Lament - Maggie Stiefvater (also this week). I know I've read others before those, but I can't remember titles. Oh, except A Midsummer Night's Dream.

    I did. In general those books (that genre, series, author) tend to be dependably interesting but light.

  4. WOW, SO MANY BOOKS! I loved Wings, that was such a cute book.

    Happy reading to you.

  5. You've been reading a lot of great books. I hope you enjoy your class!

  6. I've got Wake by Lisa Mcmann on my ereader too! I can't wait to read it. THat may be my next one, who knows! LOL

    Hope you have a great week!

  7. You had a brilliant week of reading and put mine to shame. Happy reading this week. :) My Monday:

  8. Almost every book you named is on my wish list. I'm envious!

  9. Looks like you had a great reading week! There are so many books on your list that I want to read :)

    Here's my Monday Round Up.

  10. Holy Cow! You're burning it up! I so wish I could keep up your speed...and then I think about all those reviews I'd need to

    I'm off to check out your review of WINGS. I loved that book.

  11. Wow you read so many books last week. I only wish I could read that many books in one week. I read Tempted and I thought it was just ok until the very end. How do you like the Sony reader? Do you prefer to read hard copies? I'm currently reading Wake and I love it!

  12. Nina - It was cute. And happy reading to you too.

    Stephanie - Yeah, I've been really lucky with my books being good this week. We'll see about the class. It was just an introduction today.

    Ruth - Hope you enjoy it. I enjoyed it after adjusting to the writing style.

    Jennifer (Rundpinne) - You've had great weeks when I haven't. I think it all balances out eventually. Happy Reading...

    Jennifer (Reading with Tequila) - lol! They've been on my list for a while, too. I finally decided I was done waiting, and I guess the library decided to co-operate.

    alitareads - I did and I hope you get chance to read them. =)

    J. Kaye - Uh, yeah. About those reviews... I seriously doubt I'd be keeping up with the reviewing if I did manage to keep up with the reading. But it's not speed, it's extra time.

    Book Snob - Yeah, Tempted was a bit dissapointing. I like it so far, except it being all balck and white. I would like to look back at a colored cover. In general, yeah I prefer hard copies, except this reader is going to be so convenient when I'm say, reading between classes.

  13. Book Snob - (Response Part II) I forgot to mention... the reader will also finally give me a chance to read some of the books/stories that haven't been published in print.

  14. Looks like you had a good week. My son read the Eragon series and loved it. Have a great week!
