All your books are new to me, which is wonderful because it means my TBR list will be growing. Happy reading! My Monday: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/07/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-2.html

The London Eye Mystery looks like fun!

Your review of Sing Me to Sleep has now convinced me I really need to pick up the copy I have off my shelves! Great job!

I hope you enjoy The London Eye as well as the other potentials! Have a fabulous reading week and if you have a minute check out my reading week at There’s A Book!

I enjoyed your review on Sing Me to Sleep. It was a pretty good book although I was a bit disappointed with how Beth got so whiny in the middle, but the end was a tear jerker. Hope you have a great week.

Kate said...

Your Middle East Reading Challenge looks interesting. I'm thinking of joining. My Monday is here :) Have a good week

Maree said...

My list is pretty much the same as last week's - my reading is slow-going at the moment.

Happy reading!

Suzanne said...

What a great idea for a reading challenge.

Laurel-Rain and Jennifer--Thanks for leaving your link. Your list is full of book I don't know either and that's fun!

Gwen--So far the London Eye is good though I am only about 50 pages in.

1st Daughter and Jan--Sing Me to Sleep has faults (though Beth is whiny mid-book as Jan says), but I really enjoyed it.

Kate and Suzanne--It would be great if you join! It's a low pressure challenge since you can read as many or as few Middle East books as you want

Maree--reading slumps are no fun; I hope you find something that captures your attention this week

I have wanted to read Climbing The Stairs for some time now. I think I first seen this one at Maw Books.

Enjoy whatever you read this week Helen :D

Staci said...

I'm curious to read your thoughts on the London Eye Mystery!! I'm checking out your Middle East Challenge!!

Sheila--I am working on the London Eye Mystery, but Climbing the Stairs will get read as soon as I am ready for something a little heavier

Staci--Thanks for checking out the Middle East Challenge; I hope you join us

Kristen said...

I was going to read London Eye Mystery this past year but never got around to it. I'll be curious to see what you think. Enjoy your books coming up!

Aths said...

Aah, I loved Climbing the Stairs! I'm waiting to hear your thoughts on it. *hint hint* LOL

City of Veils is on my TBR. I just saw the book 2 of City of Veils in the Goodreads giveaway. (You may want to sign up for it.)

Have a great week!

Kristen--thanks for checking in. So far so good on the London Eye Mystery!

Aths--Every time I don't pick up Climbing the Stairs I think of you and feel a little guilt! City of Veils didn't grab me right way, but I am not giving up on it. I'll go check out the sequel's give away on Good Reads. Thanks for the tip
