It's Monday! What are you reading?


This weekly meme is hosted by One Person's Journey.

Books I read this past week:

Books I am currently reading:
  • Writing on My Forehead (for my other book group)

Books I have waiting in the wings: This coming Saturday is the Dewey Read-a-Thon so I hope to get all of these (and more?) read!
  • Yoruba Girl Dancing...ok. This one I keep putting on the "waiting" list. Anyone have another suggestion for a good book that begins with "Y"?
  • Indian Killer
  • Body Drama

No clue on the Y book! That's a tough one!

"Writing On My Forehead?" Now there's an interesting title! lol

Sorry, I don't know of a "Y" book, but I'm sure someone will be able to help you out. Or maybe you can google one.

Enjoy your week. Lynne's Book Reviews

The Writing on My Forehead sounds like such a fantastic book. I hope you are enjoying it.

I loved your review of Numbers. I really want to read that one now.

Here is what I'm reading.

I had Indian Killer but failed to read it. Of course now, I see it popping up enough to want to kick myself. :-)

Woo Hoo you read Next Thing On My list! I am anxious to read what your group thought :)

SO glad you will be in on the Readathon!

Zia said...

I just received Numbers this past week and I can't wait to read it. Happy reading this week.

Jennifer said...

Okay, time to do some research since I have not heard of these. I do enjoy coming across new books. Happy reading. My Monday: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/04/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-5-april.html

You will have a good week ahead seeing as you will be taking part in the read-a-thon as well. I'm still in two minds, so let's see! Have fun!!

Helen, I love the look of your blog-gorgeous!!! I'm a middle school librarian in Michigan and I fully support saving California School Libraries...what's happening in California is scary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We can't close libraries!!

I've read very favorable reviews on Writing on My Forehead- hope you're enjoying it!!!

Becky--I am really looking forward to this week's reading; especially with the read-a-thon coming up

Lydia--the Y book is just stumping me!

Laurel--I also really enjoyed Next Thing (poignant, but fun)

Lynne--I know, I love the title Writing on My Forehead! I'll try google for the Y book

Christina--Writing is a good book, watch out for the review!

Susan--I hope Indian Killer grabs me; I really enjoyed "Autobiography" by Alexie

Zia--Numbers is good; I enjoyed it. Hope you do too!

Jennifer--Check out these books; they really are good ones

Aths--Join the read-a-thon! I don't do 24 hours by any stretch. I read from 5am to 9pm with major breaks along the way. I almost did more blog reading than book reading, which was also fun

Staci--Thanks for the compliment! The state of libraries right now is criminal. I know that there are lots of places/issues that need money, but obviously, libraries are close to my heart

Crystal (I totally paused!) said...

Your week sounds really wonderful. I wish I had a Y suggestion for you!

I've thought about that readathon and forgot it was this week, so I unintentionally booked over it. I'm going to try to get in a few hours at the very least :)

This is my week:

OMG, Indian Killer is SO good! And I really want to read Body Drama. :)

Here's the Y bit of my Reviews by Title directory, if it helps:

Ooh I'm so curious about your review of Num8ers, but I can't see it yet, I have it on my TBR list and don't want to spoil it! Did you like it?

I'm so envious because of the Read-a-thon, it is such a fun and fantastic event and I won't be able to participate this time :-( can't wait next time though! :-)

Crystal--No one seems to have a good Y suggestion for me. I may just have to force myself to read Yoruba Girls Dancing.

Eva--I am loving Body Drama (and actually thought of you as I started it). I wish I'd had it when I was a teen. Thanks for the link to the Y reviews!

Stella--Read Numbers then my review. I am really careful about not doing spoilers, but I totally understand wanting to read the book first!
