      Buried Onions sounds interesting. I mostly read picture books, manga, short stories and text books last week. Come see what I'm reading now.

      The only title I am familiar with is Delirium, which I absolutely loved. Hope you enjoy it and all your books. Have a great week!

      Connolly-Ahern (Col Reads) said...

      Great list, Helen. I'm looking forward to your comments on Cutting for Stone.

      Alitaeads--The only problem is that Delirium is on my computer so I don't want to sit at my computer for that long to read

      Jennifer--I randomly found Girls of Riyadh, but it looks fun

      Laurel-Rain--Have a great week too

      Sheila--Buried onions...the concept of why everyone in the town is so sad. I've left a comment

      Pussreboots--You always have such a great a varied reading week

      Jan--I have got to get to Delirium!

      Connolly-Ann--I am really looking forward to Cutting for Stone, I've heard such good things about it

      Kristin said...

      I've heard good things about Cutting for Stone - I hope you enjoy it.

      I'm currently reading Love Letters which is one my computer - I didn't think I'd like it, but it's a quick read and I was able to read 3/4 of it yesterday during the game!

      My It's Monday post can be found here.

      Elena said...

      Delirium looks intriguing.

      Joy Weese Moll said...

      LOL at the buried onions concept. Cool image. Happy reading!

      Here's my Monday!

      Crystal (I totally paused!) said...

      oooh, I need to make room for Delirium in my schedule too, I got it a couple of weeks ago and can't wait for it!

      Hope you have a great week :) My Monday is at:

      Kristin--3/4 of a book in a day? Wonderful!

      Elena--I loved Lauren Oliver's first book so am really looking forward to Delirium

      Joy--The buried onion concept appears throughout the book and really reminds the reader of the sadness in the characters' lives

      Crystal--So glad to hear that I am not the only one who isn't getting right to their books

      Mari said...

      Great reading week! I'm off to read your review for the girl who fell from the sky. I'm curious... I have wanted to pick this up for while.

      Have a great week!

      You have been a big influence on my deciding to participate with you in this meme, so I mentioned you today when I wrote my very first "It's Monday! What are you reading" post:

      You certainly had a good reading week! I'm curious about what you think of Cutting for Stone - I keep switching between yay and nay when it comes to that book.
