What Are You Reading: December 26, 2011: 12/26/11

What Are You Reading?

Happy Boxing Day. While on vacation I caught a cold. The cold has made my brain turn to absolute mush. So I haven't been reading much.

Red Glove is on hold. I had to return it to the library before I could finish. Had I not gotten the cold, I would have stayed up late and gotten it read. It's a good book but couldn't concentrate on it after getting sick. I will pick it up in January.

Up next: I still want to start Fairy Bad Day by Amanda Ashby. I didn't get to start Outside In again by Maria K. Snyder. Nope. Ran out of time again before it was due at the library. I will try again in January. In the meantime I want to finish Twin Spica Volume 7, the only thing I've been able to read these last few days.

On the trip down I plan to finish Rise of the Evening Star and re-read (re-listen to) The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making.

I would like to read more by Connie Willis (I only read the plague book). Hope you're enjoying this one, and your other books.

Have a good week!

I'm reading Blackout very slowly but I've enjoyed what I've read so far.

I love checking out what you read every week.

Have a great week and happy reading.

I didn't have much to post about this week.

I'm curious about This Perfect Day. I've enjoyed this author.

Thanks for visiting my blog.



Comment #6: Tuesday, December 27, 2011 at 20:03:54

Pussreboots

This Perfect Day is very good. It reads like a mixture of Farenheit 451, Logan's Run and 1984.

MarthaE

You did well even with not feeling well.
I hope you are feeling better quickly!
I have at least one Ashby book - I want to try her as an author.
I liked Outside In. :-)
Have a happy reading week for the last of 2011.

I've loved each of the Amanda Ashby books I've read. She's also delightful to follow on Twitter. I will read Outside In one of these days. Maybe I'll just give in and buy a copy! Happy New Year.

Circumnavigated Fairyland should be at the library for me tomorrow. Glad to see that you liked it so much you are rereading it!

Here's my It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Pussreboots

I hope you enjoy it! I need to finish Fablehaven 2 before re-listening to The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making.

Kathy Martin

Don't you just hate it when those library books come due before you have a chance to finish them? F in Exams sounds like a fun read. I hope you feel better soon and can get back to reading!



Comment #12: Tuesday, December 27, 2011 at 20:13:05

Pussreboots

F in Exams is a quick, humorous read.

You have accomplished a lot this week. Enjoy the rest of the books.

I've hardly read anything this week. Just haven't had the brains for it.

Jamie @ Fantasy Book Chick

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I have not read of any of your books either except for Red Glove. Hope you feel better. :)

I can't wait to get back to Red Glove.

Thanks. I'm slowly on the mend.

I've been sending a lot of books back to the library unread, too. Mostly a matter of too many books, too little time!

Pussreboots

My travel plans got in the way of due dates.

Flirting with Forever is incredibly cute! Hope you enjoyed it :)

I still need to finish Flirting with Forever.

Wow, you had a productive reading week, especially in the middle of the holiday season! Can you really read 6 books at once? I just manage one at a time.

I love Nevada Barr's novels - we like to vacation in national parks, so I always enjoy her settings.

Enjoy your books this week.

Pussreboots

It's really no different than following a bunch of different TV series. I even wrote a post about it.
