It's Monday! What are you reading? (3/1/2010)

This meme is now hosted by Sheila @ One Person's Journey Through a World of Books.

This past week I posted on:
This past week I read:

  • Wedding Day Murder by Leslie Meier (Kensington)
  • Birthday Party Murder by Leslie Meier (Kensington)

I'll probably do one post with some mini-reviews for these.

I also read these children's books:
  • Chester by Melanie Watt
  • Mrs. McTats and Her Houseful of Cats by Alyssa Satin (Illustrated by Joan Rankin)
I'll probably review both of these, but definitely Chester.

Currently Reading:
  • Star Spangled Murder by Leslie Meier (Kensington)
In the week to come...
  • New Year's Eve Murder by Leslie Meier
  • White Witch, Black Curse by Kim Harrison
  • The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
  • Graceling by Kristin Cashore
So last week I asked for recommendations from the MANY library books I had/have checked out. The main recommendations were for YA books (which also make up the bulk of the close to 50 books I have out), but found I wasn't in the mood for YA. This week I'll be taking those recommendations in account. Also, it's a little late, but I hope to comment on Barney's Book Blog about The Hunger Games.

Oh, and my copy of The Hobbit is still missing, but if I find it, that's on the list as well.


  1. I haven't read many of your books, but I loved The Hunger Games and Graceling. And I love the title, Mrs. McTats and Her Houseful of Cats. Enjoy your books this week!

  2. Thank you for stopping by my site! Hoping that you've a great time reading this week. Have a good day =)

  3. Looks like you had a great reading week! Hope you have another one this week :)

  4. Wow! What a great reading week for you - I wish mine had been as productive lol

    Here is my Monday:

  5. You have some really interesting titles. I loved Hunger Games and Catching Fire was good too. I very anxious to have the last one come out. I did want to thank you for stopping by my blog today and let you know if you like fantasy that Iron King is a exciting read. Have a great week

  6. What did you think of Kim Harrison's Hollows series? I really love those books :o) You managed to do a lot of reading last week - hope this week is a good one for you too!

  7. Jennifer - I've heard so many great things about both The Hunger Games and Graceling that I'm kinda nervous to try them. Nevertheless...

    Shy and Chrissie - Thanks and likewise.

    Lydia - When I'm avoiding something I read. I've been having money issues... hence, the productiveness.

    Jan von Harz - I hadn't even thought as far as Catching Fire, let alone the 3rd in the series. Oh, boy. Sounds like The Iron King is another book to be added to the Books-To-Read list. =)

    Sarah - They have me totally hooked. I just got White Witch, Black Curse from the library today. I had to wait the weekend out, and that was too much. I don't know how I'm going to handle waiting for Black Magic Sanction since I'm 11th in line. I was not planning to get so caught up in this series. Nor was I planning to get so emotional about them.

  8. Dang girl! you read a LOT last week! i'm envious... i'm lucky if i can get one a week. enjoy your books for this week and have a great one! :D

  9. Some of these authors are new to me. That is what is great about this meme.

    If you liked The Historian, I think that you will like The Swan Thieves. The style is really similar, just this time it centers on painters as opposed to Vlad.

  10. Looks like you had a great reading week! Enjoy the books you have coming up - especially The Hunger Games :)

    Here's what I'm reading

  11. christ! wish I am as fast a reader as you are!

  12. Well I am just a lovin' the book titles of the books you read last week! How fun! Hope this week has been a good one. Mine has been crazy busy and now I am finally getting around to see what everyone is reading. :)


Please feel free to comment. I love to hear from you!
