It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (Jan 27, 2014)



It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey

I got my new glasses yesterday (Yah!). Doc says that they changed about 20% (in just two years!) and that could definitely have been causing my headaches.  This and the fact that they have already cancelled school here tomorrow and closed the library that I work at means a free day of reading!  Woot!

Temp forecast for Monday morning 8am: -2, feels like -24 with temperatures continuing to drop throughout the day. 

Currently reading (Still):


Through the Ever Night
by Veronica Rossi

AND


The God of Small Things
by Arundhati Roy

Bathroom Book:

Finished The One and Only Ivan and will be reviewing soon.


First Love
by James Patterson

An extraordinary portrait of true love that will move anyone who has a first love story of their own. Axi Moore is a "good girl": She studies hard, stays out of the spotlight, and doesn't tell anyone how all she really wants is to run away from it all. The only person she can tell is her best friend, Robinson--who she also happens to be madly in love with. 

When Axi spontaneously invites Robinson to come with her on an impulsive cross-country road trip, she breaks the rules for the first time in her life. But the adventure quickly turns from carefree to out of control after the teens find themselves on the run from the police. And when Robinson suddenly collapses, Axi has to face the truth that this trip might be his last.

A remarkably moving tale very personal to James Patterson's own past, FIRST LOVE is testament to the power of first love--and how it can change the rest of your life.


E-read (Still):


Last Night at the Blue Angel

by Rebecca Rotert

Haven't gotten much further in this book due to my tired eyes - but hope to change that this week with my new glasses!


Life as We Knew It
by Susan Beth Pfeffer

Wanted to start this last week, but just got the nod that it was waiting for me to download from our library - so hopefully will get this one going this week as well!

Working on:

I have done absolutely nothing on either one of these projects this week. . .
no excuses. . .
