It's Monday! What are you reading? (3/8/2010)

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

  • I reviewed Dead Air by Mary Kennedy.
  • I posted some brief (spoiler-free) comments on Kim Harrison's Every Which Way but Dead, Fistful of Charms, For a Few Demons More, and The Outlaw Demon Wails here. I'm calling this set-up a combo-review and I may do it semi-regularly from now on.
  • I also did a combo-review of Leslie Meier's Wedding Day Murder, Birthday Party Murder, and Father's Day Murder (found here).
  • I reviewed the hilarious children's book Chester written and illustrated by Mélanie Watt.
  • And I reviewed Mrs. McTats and Her Houseful of Cats by Alyssa Satin Capucilli (Illustrated by Joan Rankin).
I read:
  • Star Spangled Murder by Leslie Meier
  • White Witch, Black Curse by Kim Harrison
  • The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
and the Children's book:
  • Miss Smith and the Haunted Library by Michael Garland
I'm currently reading:
  • Blackwork by Monica Ferris
  • The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien (I found it!!!)
and have finally started the non-fiction book:
  • After the Cure: The Untold Stories of Breast Cancer by Emily K. Abel and Saskia K. Subramanian
This coming week:

I really can't say. I have a lot of books going overdue that I can't renew, and I need to get going on those. I guess the library (and my fellow library patrons who request the books I have out) will be controlling my reading for a while.


  1. i've read so much good reviews on the hunger series. hope you love it too.

    here's mine;

    happy reading!

  2. I hope you liked that series by Kim Harrison as much as I did! I like the title of the book Mrs. McTats.... I'm off to read about it! Happy reading.

  3. I really want to read the Suzanne Collins and Kim Harrison books. I hope you have a great reading week :)

  4. OOh you finished Hunger Games! Loved that!

    Glad you found The Hobbit, such a great read! Have wonderful week!

  5. Hunger Games - a book that DOES live up to all the hype :)

  6. Glad to hear you found The Hobbit! I think I read an abridged version when I was a kid, but I don't remember what I thought of it. I really need to try it again.

  7. dArLyN - Actually, I didn't love it. However, I do agree that it was very good. =)

    Sharon - The Kim Harrison series has me completely hooked. =)

    Chrissie - If you do get a chance to read them, I hope you enjoy them.

    Sheila (Bookjourney) - I haven't made it far with The Hobbit, but what I've read so far is fun.

    Jill - It's certainly well written and intriguing.

    alitareads - I'm not very far into it, but so far it's amusing, fun, and, because I'm somewhat familiar w/ some of the characters from the LOTR movies, interesting.


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