What Are You Reading: July 04, 2011: 07/04/11

What Are You Reading?

My reading list consists of a lot of picture books read with my children, as well as the manga I've been reading with my oldest.

With The Last Little Blue Envelope out now, 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson is suddenly a hot commodity at the library. I wasn't able to renew it so I had to get it read in a couple of days. I also finished Arcadia Falls which fell apart near the end. Two novels from TBR that I finished were Innocence by Jane Mendelsohn and City of Bones by Cassandra Clare.

I finished one review book, an egalley called Cara Mia by Denise Verrico.

Coming up this week, I hope to finish The Writing Circle by Corinne Demas, The Secret of Ka by Christopher Pike and The Shipping News by E. Annie Proulx. After that I plan to start The Case of the Left-Handed Lady by Nancy Springer and Jane Bites Back by Michael Thomas Ford.

You had a brilliant week. Enjoy your books and your week.
My Monday.

I had a surprisingly busy week of reading. I probably would have only read half as many if I hadn't had so many books recalled at the library.

I hope you enjoy The Shipping News. There were parts that I found tedious, but overall, very worthwhile.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

I am enjoying The Shipping News and not finding it at all tedious. I like her style of writing and went into the book with certain expectations. So far the book is meeting those expectations.

I had a tough time with Shipping News, but enjoyed the Postmistress. And, Bumped is on my TBR list. Have a great week

Right now I'm having an easier time with The Shipping News than I am with The Postmistress.

I have been wanting to read Princess Academy- it has been on my reading for work list for awhile. Maybe I will get to it this summer, it sounds great! The Shipping News is another that sounds interesting.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I listened to Princess Academy but I do own a printed copy which I plan to read soon. The Shipping News is lovely.

Wow, you devoured an incredible number of books last week. And I wish I could read so many books at once. That's tremendous!

Can't wait to see some of your reviews on last week's reads.

Happy reading!

It will take a while for everything to get reviewed. I don't always review immediately after reading.
