It's Monday! What are you reading? 2-22-2010

What are you reading on Mondays is now being hosted by Sheila at One Person's Journey - be sure to stop by her blog and congratulate her on being bequethed this great meme! You can hook up with the Mr. Linky there with your own post - but be sure and let me know what you are reading too!

Well, after dealing with Strep this week with me and my son - I didn't get caught up like I wanted to. However I did make some decisions about some books that have been loitering on my "still reading" list and have decided that they need to be re-shelved and tried again at another time. So you will see that some books have disappeared for awhile.

Currently reading:
1. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver I am reading this as part of the YA First Look program for Barnes and Noble. This is the first First Look that I have participated in and am enjoying reading others comments and getting different insights.

Eggs in Purgatory (A Cackleberry Club Mystery) by Laura Childs This is my current "bathroom" book. I have received book 2 from the author and wanted to read them in order. Look for 2 giveaways from Laura Childs this week.

3. Out with the In Crowd (The Reinvention of Skylar Hoyt) by Stephanie Morrell This book is on tour this week with Revell.

New this week:
1.Yesterday's Promise (East of the Sun) by Linda Lee Chaikin On tour this week with Waterbrook.

With the exception of Dear John, I haven't heard of any of these books, I hope that you enjoy them all!

My It's Monday is a very well known classic, so there will be no surprises
That's the second time that I have seen someone mention the Lightning Thief. I hope you enjoyed it.

You have lots of books coming up, hope you get through them all.

My Its Monday post pales in comparison to yours

Nice book choices, Before I Fall, Dear John and Wake and Fade are on my wishlist or my tbr pile and I read Evermore last year. Have a wonderful reading week :-)

Here's what I'm reading

Chrissie said...

I really want to read Before I Fall and Wake. They both sound really good. Hope you have a good reading week :)

Jan von Harz said...

I liked Evermore and Blue Moon but wasn't too thrilled with Shawdowland. Ever was too self-absorbed and whiny for me. I will be interested to read your review and see what you think.

Sharon said...

That's quite a few books. The only one I know is Dear John and it is in my TBR pile. Happy reading!

Nina said...

Lots of people have read Before I fall and I havent read a negative review about it so far. I hope you enjoy it as well as they did. Have a good week!

Lydia said...

I went and saw Dear John this weekend and loved it. I think I liked it better than the book!

Ruth Schaller said...

Before I Fall keeps showing up and it has an awesome cover!

Dear John is one on my list, preferably read before I see the movie!

Have a great week!

MY 1st post disappeared into cyberspace so I'll try again.

I love cozies but I don't think I have read any Laura Childs, I'll have to check my old reading list. She is probably an author I need to check out because I see a lot of people really enjoy her books.

HAPPY READING!!! I hope you are feeling better.

Jo said...

I really enjoyed Eggs in Purgatory and want to read the second in the series.

I also enjoyed Wake. I wonder how that writing style comes across in audio, though. Do you like it?

NatalieSap said...

Ooh, how are you liking Wake on audio? I'm considering re-reading it before I get my hands on Gone but maybe I'll listen to it instead.

Amy said...

Great list! Hope you're feeling better! Here's my list.

April (BooksandWine) said...
