What Are You Reading: November 21, 2011: 11/21/11
I still have the same bunch of books going from last week, although I did finally finish The Throne of Fire by Rick Riordan and A Princess of Landover by Terry Brooks. Of those two, the Brooks book was by far my favorite. It takes place in a library and I'm currently finishing up my MLIS and am interning at a library. So, the book was a perfect fit for me.
Of all the books I finished last week, the best, hands down was The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente. If you can, get a copy of the audio read by the author. It is excellent.
This week I plan to finish The Blessing Way by Tony Hillerman. It's my current audio book. I don't know for sure what my next audio book will be. I'll pick something at the library on Tuesday.
I'm not sure I will continue with Big Stone Gap by Adriana Trigiani. It's just not going anywhere quick enough for me. For this week I need to finish A Cat Named Squeeky by Vic Reskovic.
I plan to start Of All the Stupid Things by Alexandra Diaz, Firelight by Sophie Jordan and The Alchemist by Michael Scott. All of these are library books coming due.
What about you? What are you reading?

An impressive list, thanks for the recommendation of The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making. I'm a fan of well narrated audio books so that one's going on my wishlist.

It's one of the best audios I've listened to this year. Happy listening!

I tried one of Trigliani's books a few years ago, and couldn't quite get into it...they do move a bit slow.
This week, once again, I read Skippyjon Jones novels...I usually end up reading all five novels Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, but the last two weeks, my granddaughter has added Miss Nelson Is Missing to the line up. :) She loves to have books read to her over and over. She'll even have one person read a certain book to her, and take it right over to someone else to read it again. Attention -loves the attention, and loves stories. She's always asking me to make up stories, and I'm so horrible at them. :)
Ah well, Se la Vi - have a great week, enjoy Turkey day, if you do it. :)

She sounds like my daughter. Although now what mine does is she'll re-read the book herself after I read it to her. Happy Thanksgiving to you as well if you're celebrating. It's one of our big family holidays.

Sorry to hear about Big Stone Gap - I hate it when a book doesn't hold my interest and I have to decide to continue or bail.
Good luck with this week's book selections!

I'm still plugging along with Big Stone Gap. I haven't decided yet if I'm going to call it quits.

As usual, you have a nice eclectic bunch. Now I'm really curious about The Girl Who Circumnavigated...et. al lol.
Thanks for visiting my blog, and enjoy your week.

Isn't it a doozy of a title? Despite the long title, it's an excellent audio book.
Comment #9: Monday, November, 21, 2011 at 10:04:29
Thanks for the audio tip! I am due to pick up a couple more :)

Thankfully it's a holiday week. I don't have as much on my plate for school.
Comment #13: Monday, November, 21, 2011 at 10:34:28
I am currently slogging through Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick, its not so bad but its not great either :/ at the moment I can't see myself reading the next book in the series.
Comment #14: Monday, November 21, 2011 at 22:51:03
I never commit to an entire series when I try a new book. Good luck with your reading.

I am also culling my shelves of books I know I won't read. I want to be able to get at the books I do want to read more easily.
