      Women Without Men sounds very interesting. Have a wonderful week reading. My Monday: http://www.rundpinne.com/2011/01/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-24.html

      I've seen a few reviews of The Death of Instinct that make it sound good. Will look forward to your review. I wasn't terribly thrilled with his An Interpretation of Murder (with Freud). Maybe he's gotten better?

      Here's my Monday: http://myreadersblock.blogspot.com/2011/01/its-monday-what-are-you-reading_30.html

      So many good books Helen! I hope you are enjoying them all! The one about Iran sounds interesting I am going to have to peak at that one.

      Oh and your sidebar "What;s In My Purse" gave me an idea... LOL... my purse currently isn't big enough for a book.

      I hope you get to Delirium, I liked it. I'm not familiar with the other titles though :) happy reading.

      I read picture books, manga and text books last week. Come see what I'm reading now.

      I wish I have not requested many books from Netgalley so I can request Delirium now
      *sighed*

      I have seen Running Dream and want to read it as I love Van Draanen's writing. I really enjoyed Delirium and hope you do too. Have a great week!

      Girl Who Fell from the Sky sounds like one I'd enjoy.

      Hope you have a great reading week.

      Oh, this is where I wish I had wordpress or Intense Debate or Disqus so I could respond to each comment individually...

      Jennifer and Pussreboots--I'll check out your Monday after I finish these responses

      Bev--Death Instinct wasn't my thing, I'll post the review Wednesday night

      Sheila--I always have a book in my purse so I figured it was a good way to show what I'm reading

      Samita--I hear such good things about Delirium and I really liked Oliver's Before I Fall

      Aleetha--Is there a limit to how many books we can request from Netgalley or are you just limiting yourself? I've got four waiting

      Helen's Book Blog said...

      Jan--Running Dream was the perfect book for me to read at that moment; I enjoyed it so much!

      Laurel-Rain--I just started Girl Who Fell From the SKy last night so am only a few pages in. But, so far so good!

      Nina said...

      I really want to read Delirium by Lauren Oliver. There's such a hype around it already and I have high hopes for it. I hope it delivers.

      Have a wonderful Monday!

      Julie @ Knitting and Sundries said...

      The Girl Who Fell From the Sky is on my wishlist, and I'll be posting my review of Delirium soon as well (love!). Enjoy your reading week! I'm off to check out your reviews!

      Nina--I also have high hopes for Delirium, which always makes me a bit nervous. But, since I liked her previous book so much I will think good thoughts.

      Julie--Enjoy your week as well. I am about to pop over to your blog

      Dizzy C--You too! I hope you find wonderful books

      I'm very interested in The Girl Who Fell From the Sky. I'll be looking forward to your review. Enjoy your week!

      Introverted Jen--I am almost 100 pages in and it's alright so far, but not great
