It's Monday! What are you reading?


This meme is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey

Books read last week: How did I only finish one book this week? I thought I'd have tons of free time this weekend, but it was not meant to be...
Books currently reading:
  • Fasting, Feasting by Anita Desai (PoC, Reading from my Shelves, Awesome Author challenges)
  • Fade to Blue by Bill Moody (Suspense/Mystery Challenge)
Books waiting in the wings:
  • Hush by Chayil
  • Born Under a Million Shadows by Andrea B (Awesome Authors, What's in a Name, Reading from my Shelves, PoC challenges)
Books I bought: I went to Chaucer's to buy books for school, but got tempted by books for me as well

Shantaram is a favorite of mine -- enjoy

Doret said...

Reading Poisioner's Handbook by Blum. I don't read much non fiction but this is very good.

Hello Kitty Must Die and Dark Goddess are up next.

Misha said...

I've heard great things bout Born Under a Million Shadows and Skipping a Beat. Hope you enjoy them!

Happy Reading.

Diane--I am so glad to hear that about Shantaram, it's a bit intimidating!

Doret--Have a great week. I love the title "Hello Kitty Must Die"!

Misha--I love hearing good things about upcoming books, it gets me excited to read them

Jennifer said...

I have Radio Shangri-La on my list to be read. Have a wonderful week reading. My Monday: http://www.rundpinne.com/2011/03/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-29.html

I had that same type of weekend - I thought it was going to be reading utopia but no... its amazing how I can fill up my time with a project here, a meeting there.... gah!

I am so glad you picked up Skipping A Beat!

I finished more K to 3 books for my project, some short stories and at last, Kraken. Come see what I'm reading now.

Bonnie Jacobs said...

I started SHANTARAM four or five years ago, and it's still on my shelf. It didn't grab me, and it's so loo-o-o-oooong! Maybe if I joined you and Aths this summer, I would have a reason to try again. May I? Or do you have something already worked out?

Jan von Harz said...

I need to get Split since it won the Cybils this year for YA and I have yet to read it. Going to check out your review. Have a great week!

Helen's Book Blog said...

Jennifer--Radio Shangri-La sounds so interesting and is about a country that I don't know much about, always a plus with me

Sheila--How does that happen? I could have sworn having my daughter doing shows all weekend would give me time. Instead I was driving all over the place, etc

Pussreboots--K-3 books sound pretty good to me right now!

Bonnie--I'll let you know when we've set up a reading schedule. I thought it would help to read a set amount each week and to have someone else to spur me on

Jan--Enjoy Split, it is really good. The more I think about it the higher I want to rate it

Skipping a Beat looks good...I'm reading her first book, The Opposite of Me, this week.

Here's MY MONDAY MEMES POST

Aths said...

I'm enjoying Radio Shangri-La right now, plus yay for the Shantaram!

Btw, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you tomorrow. I hope all goes well! Good luck!

Shirley said...

I've heard Skipping A Beat is good. I'd like to see what you think.

Here's mine My Bookshelf and a giveaway!

Helen's Book Blog said...

Laurel-Rain--Can't wait to see what you think of Opposite of Me, maybe I should have gotten that one first

Aths--Shan-ta-ram, Shan-ta-ram...

Shirley--I am hoping it's light and fun, I've been reading some serious stuff lately
