What Are You Reading: September 12, 2011: 09/12/11

What Are You Reading?

This week I've been busy with homework. Three-quarters of what I read this week was in the form of children's picture books. With the exception of Home of the Brave by Allen Say, all of these picture books I read with my children. The Home of the Brave I read at my internship as I was trying to figure out how best to catalog it.

I didn't give up on any books this week. I am struggling a bit with Dandelion Fire by N. D. Wilson. It is so different in tone from 100 Cupboards that I'm not sure what to make of it.

I started listening to Ida B. by Katherine Hannigan. The voice actress is doing a wonderful job reading the book.

I still want to start The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff. I also want to start Paranormalcy by Kiersten White.

You did a great job! I haven't finished a single book last week because exams are taking more time than I thought. Can't wait for my fall routine to have more time to read.
have a great week!

I understand. I suspect though that my kids would still want story time so I'd get some reading done during exam time.

The1stdaughter (Danielle)

Oh! Some great picture books, including Cat the Cat!!! It's one of our absolute favorites, in fact we read it tonight. Love Mo Willems! :o)

Hope you have a fabulous reading week and if you get a second stop my to see what I've been reading at There's A Book! :)

Bloggers either seem to love Cat the Cat or hate it. We're in the love category. It was a great place for Harriet to start her reading.

Peggy@ Peggy Ann's Post

An impressive list!

The Replacement has been on my radar for awhile...maybe I'll get around to it soon.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

I've wanted to read The Replacement since I saw the cover art.

I actually haven't heard of a lot of these, but they sound really good. Twilight of the Gods seems pretty intriguing. Happy Reading!



Comment #12: Monday, September 12, 21:57:33

Pussreboots

Twilight of the Gods is the second in the series. It's good so far.

My Terry Brooks period is over, but long ago, I read a lot of the Shannara books. Enjoy your selection this week!



Comment #18: Monday, September 12, 22:04:53

Pussreboots

I haven't been tempted to read the Shannara books but I like his Landover series.

Aeicha @ Word Spelunking

I just loved Ida B! I still need to start Rick Riordan's new series...love him.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Pussreboots

Ida B. is excellent. The actress reading the book is really bringing her to life.

I keep eying the cover of The Replacement, but I haven't bought it yet! Which reminds me — I need to check again and see if my library has gotten it in. Enjoy your week!



Comment #22: Monday, September 12, 22:10:59

Pussreboots

I happened to see a very nice copy of The Replacement at Half Price Books. Otherwise I'd be waiting for my library to get a copy too.

Gina, a book dragon

a new landover book?

I'm very glad you stopped by but don't think my bank account will thank you! :)



Comment #24: Friday, September 16, 2011 at 22:37:32

Pussreboots

Yes. The new Landover novel was published last year. I apologize for the damage done to your bank account.

I wasn't big fan of The Replacement, I was a little disappointed with it, but I loved Paranormalcy, it's just so much fun :) Happy reading & have a great week!

Pussreboots

Hopefully I will get to both books this coming week. There's always something getting in the way. Grrr!

Mrs Q Book Addict

Oh, lots and lots of books. I hope you enjoy them all. The Thorn of Fire has me intrigued.



Comment #28: Friday, September 16, 2011 at 22:41:40

Pussreboots

Poor Throne of Fire is sitting unloved under my bed. Library books got in the way.

Children, homework, internship - and you still read all of these? Great job! Have a fantastic week!

The picture books I read at night with my kids. I listen to an audio book while I'm driving to and from my internship. I also read a few pages before bed each night.
