What Are You Reading: January 16, 2012: 01/16/12
I'm feeling better. The kids are back in school but I'm not yet. So I'm spending some of my spare time reading. Although my goal is to read a greater portion of longer books I'm still reading at last year's pace. I'm sure this will slow down when school starts for me. It certainly will once I find a job — another goal for this year.
I finally finished Red Glove and am eagerly awaiting the third book. I am completely sucked into the Curse Workers series by Holly Black.
At long last I'm reading Fairy Bad Day by Amanda Ashby. It's hilarious. Why didn't I start it sooner?
I found This Perfect Day by Ira Levin in my car of all places. So I'm back to reading it. I would like to finish it this week.
Except for one book which I'm still waiting for, I've finished my CYBILS reading. I will review the books after the winners are announced on February 12th.

Thanks. I've been reading for fun with my morning coffee, something I can't do when I'm school.

I have fallen in love with Holly Black's writing and cannot wait for the next book in the series either. So many good books being released this year!

I am hoping to be a little more current with my reading this year.

Thanks for sharing...I still want to check out This Perfect Day. I'll be watching for your review.
Thanks for visiting my blog.

I'm reading This Perfect Day slowly. But it's classic Levin.

Glad you are feeling better! You have a lot of interesting books on your list. I love Sophie Kinsella's books and I have Remember Me? I hope you're enjoying it.
Comment #8: Monday, January 16, 2012 at 22:56:22
Remember Me? is a good balance between funny and touching. I might focus on finishing it this week just to see how it all turns out.

I have never read anything by Holly Black, but I hear good things. You've had a great reading week!

The Curse Worker books are an interesting take on organized crime, politics and magic.
Comment #11: Monday, January 16, 2012 at 21:22:18
Quite a long list.
Comment #12: Monday, January 16, 2012 at 23:00:12
Yes but I'm on vacation so my usual homework time is being spent reading for fun.
Comment #13: Monday, January 16, 2012 at 21:40:14
I can't wait til my kids go back to school in 3 weeks!
Comment #14: Monday, January 16, 2012 at 23:01:14
Wow. Long vacation for them!
Comment #15: Monday, January 16, 2012 at 22:11:30
Glad you are feeling better. Looks like you are doing good in reading. Now I am really interested in Fairy Bad Day!
Comment #16: Monday, January 16, 2012 at 23:02:21
I've read all of Ashby's books. She's one of my favorite new authors.
Comment #17: Monday, January 16, 2012 at 22:40:51
I really enjoyed Magyk, and I love the title of Fairy Bad Day! Enjoy your week!
Comment #18: Monday, January 16, 2012 at 23:03:24
I am enjoying Magyk as well. I can sort of see where the plot is going but I'm having fun reading it. Fairy Bad Day is good too.
Comment #19: Tuesday, January, 17, 2012 at 05:38:36
I heard that Home is very good. I fancied reading that.
Glad you are feeling better. I am back at school too and expect a reading slow down. It definitely slowed down during my first term before Christmas.

School starts for me on Wedesday. My reading's about to slow dramatically.
