What Are You Reading: March 14, 2011: 03/14/11

I turned in my children's book project today. The reading I did for it last week accounts for almost a third of my list. The other third is also picture books. These I either read to my daughter or she read to me. The fun reading comes down to four books: two more Fullmetal Alchemist volumes, a nonfiction and a mystery from Argentina. I also list two books that I did not finish because they just weren't my cup of tea: Geektastic and Ruby of the Realms.

Samita @ Book Purring

I'm not familiar with Fullmetal Alchemist and I'm from Mexico (not that close to Argentina but still hehe)

I've been meaning to read The Lost Hero, I hope you're enjoying it :)

Pussreboots

Fullmetal Alchemist is a manga series that's been turned into two different anime series. If you like literary mysteries, I highly recommend Book of Murder (the novel from Argentina). Lost Hero is fun so far. It has a new trio of main characters so it's fun to see Camp Halfblood and the previous characters from their perspective.

I've read 2 books by Lauren Henderson and enjoyed them, will have to check out Girls Night In. Have a great week and happy reading :)



Comment #4: Monday, March 14, 2011 at 20:50:05

Pussreboots

Lauren Henderson is one of a number contributers to this collection of chicklit short stories. So far it's been a fun read.

RAnn

Bet you are glad to have the project done. Enjoy your books and thanks for stopping by

I wish I could take a breather but I have two more projects on the horizon.

Kathy

You had a great reading week. You read a few of my favorite picture books too. I just love Mo Willems and so do my students. Have a great reading week!



Comment #8: Monday, March 14, 2011 at 21:03:15

Pussreboots

My daughter read the Mo Willems books to me.

Kristen H.

Lots of great books! Enjoy them!



Comment #10: Monday, March 14, 2011 at 21:05:22

Pussreboots

I suspect that the next couple of weeks will be mostly research related reading again. My library card is getting quite a work out!

Helen Murdoch

Angelina Ballerina was one of my daughter's favorites. I must have read those books (we had almost all of them) aloud hundreds of times!



Comment #12: Monday, March 14, 2011 at 21:07:23

Pussreboots

We have a couple of the later books but we'd never read the original Angelina Ballerina. It was a nice find at the library.

Sheila (Bookjourney)

A lot of books happening here - you had a great week

I had a crazy busy week especiall because of that children's book project I was working on for school.

Brooke

Wow! I'm impressed!!



Comment #16: Monday, March 14, 2011 at 21:09:35

Pussreboots

Thanks. Take away the reading for school and the reading with my daughter and it comes down to a more sensible four books.



Comment #17: Monday, March, 14, 2011 at 10:07:12

Laurel-Rain Snow

Your books sound fascinating...and what a list!

Hope you enjoy your new week, and thanks for visiting my blog.



Comment #18: Monday, March 14, 2011 at 21:12:00

Pussreboots

School and bed time stories inflated the list.

Tasha

Have a fab week! See what I'm reading here and don't forget to join in Read My Review, which this week has a Cute and Fluffy theme.



Comment #20: Monday, March 14, 2011 at 21:13:53

Pussreboots

OK. Thanks.



Comment #21: Monday, March, 14, 2011 at 15:44:22

Zia

wow! That's one heck of a reading list. Happy reading this week.



Comment #22: Monday, March 14, 2011 at 21:14:54

Pussreboots

Classwork and bedtime stories makes the list look longer than it otherwise would be.

Hope you have a wonderful reading week, Sarah!



Comment #24: Monday, March 14, 2011 at 21:17:35

Pussreboots

Thank you. It will be a lot of school reading again.



Comment #25: Monday, March, 14, 2011 at 21:01:21

IntrovertedJen

I'm torn between going on to The Lost Hero or The Red Pyramid next. I'm leaning toward taking a tiny break and heading to Egypt. Enjoy your week!



Comment #26: Monday, March 14, 2011 at 21:18:10

Pussreboots

I read The Lost Pyramid first. Happy reading.

Great list here.

Thank you.

gautami tripathy

You read some great books! Look forward to read your reviews! I read only one!

Here is my Monday: Mailbox/What Are You Reading?/Musings post!



Comment #30: Monday, March 14, 2011 at 21:26:13

Pussreboots

Most of my books were for school or ones I was reading to (or with) my children.



Comment #31: Monday, March, 14, 2011 at 21:36:05

Nisé

Excellent reading week. I enjoyed Nick of Time, hope you are as well.



Comment #32: Monday, March 14, 2011 at 21:27:13

Pussreboots

Nick of Time is good so far. I have the sequel to review from the publisher but I want to read the start of the series to give as fair a review as possible.



Comment #33: Monday, March, 14, 2011 at 22:03:47

Joann Downie

Wow, how do you read so many? I feel so slow...LOL



Comment #34: Monday, March 14, 2011 at 21:29:30

Pussreboots

A lot of them I have to read for school. The other lot are picture books I read with my children. Take away both of those piles of books, it's only four books read last week.



Comment #35: Monday, March, 14, 2011 at 23:20:08

Crystal (I Totally Paused!)

I tried to borrow some Rick Riordan from the library this past week, but they were out of everything I was looking for. I'm hoping to find them next time!

Thanks for visiting :)



Comment #36: Monday, March 14, 2011 at 21:30:32

Pussreboots

I put most of the books I want to read at the library on hold so I know they will be waiting for me.



Comment #37: Sunday, March, 20, 2011 at 00:29:24

MarthaE

Hi - I am finally returning visits.
YIKES 21 books! Even if some are for school that is a lot! I recognize one author: Rick Riordan.
Hope you had another great week.



Comment #38: Wednesday, March 23, 2011 at 12:14:02

Pussreboots

But they were mostly picture books: 32 pages per book. It's not really that much.
