What Are You Reading: January 30, 2012: 01/30/12
School started on Wednesday. I did read some picture book reading with my daughter. Take those two out, and I finished two review books, an audio and four novels.
I still want to finish Fairy Bad Day by Amanda Ashby but I did manage to finish This Perfect Day by Ira Levin. This week I will probably finish Dying for Chocolate by Diane Mott Davidson, my current audio book. I would also like to finish The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong which has taken me completely by surprise.
This week I might start one of those two Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle books I have out from my library. I will also be starting Demonglass by Rachel Hawkins. Time permitting, I'll also crack open Carmelo but I suspect that one will end up going back to the library unread.
What about you?
Did Not Finish:

That's a shame you didn't finish the Vikram Seth. Did you not like it? I've read one of his books and loved it. Was years ago mind you.

It's 250 pages of free rhyming sonnets. I liked parts of it and I liked the over all gist of the plot but the format made it difficult to read at a comfortable pace. On Goodreads I gave it 3 out of 5 stars. I just chose to skim it instead of reading it.

A great mix of books, enjoy your reading!
Comment #4: Monday, January 30, 2012 at 10:53:04
Thank you. Same to you.
Comment #5: Monday, January 30, 2012 at 07:55:15
I've read some books by Diane Mott Davidson and Dying for Chocolate will fit right into my cozy reading.
Here's MY MONDAY MEMES POST.

I'm enjoying the Barbara Rosenblat audio book versions of Davidson's mysteries.
Comment #7: Monday, January 30, 2012 at 09:23:29
I am so envious. I don't know how you get so much read all the time but you are my hero! :)
Comment #8: Monday, January 30, 2012 at 10:56:32
I wrote a post about how I read. You can read it here.
Comment #9: Monday, January 30, 2012 at 12:33:33
How They Croaked, too funny. Have a great week!!
Comment #10: Monday, January 30, 2012 at 10:58:23
I read How They Croaked for the CYBILS.
Comment #11: Monday, January 30, 2012 at 15:11:50
I'll have to check out Dying For Chocolate!! I already have a few of her books that I haven't read yet!
Comment #12: Tuesday, January 31, 2012 at 14:24:51
I am completely addicted to the Barbara Rosenblat audio book versions. I love to cook while listening to the books. Plus I'm getting a serious literary crush on Julian.

I am glad to see that you enjoyed the second book in the Flavia series. I enjoyed the first one quite a bit and have been meaning to read the second.
Comment #14: Tuesday, January 31, 2012 at 14:25:20
I really did. I plan to pick up the third book in February.
Comment #15: Monday, January 30, 2012 at 19:14:34
Wow! You got a lot of reading done this week!
Comment #16: Tuesday, January 31, 2012 at 14:26:31
I did but not nearly as much as I have done in previous weeks.
Comment #17: Monday, January 30, 2012 at 20:07:36
I loved How They Croaked. It was really entertaining, and threw a lot of history in a nice package. Good on you for tackling 1Q84!
Comment #18: Tuesday, January 31, 2012 at 14:27:00
I will post a review of How They Croaked after the CYBILS award winner is announced. I'm a judge for the middle grade / YA nonfiction so I can't really say anything beyond that I've read it. 1Q84 is long but very well written. I need to get back to it.
Comment #19: Monday, January 30, 2012 at 20:32:11
Great list of books! I want to read War Horse. I heard great things about the movie.
Comment #20: Tuesday, January 31, 2012 at 14:32:03
War Horse is nicely written but it's not my favorite. Morpurgo has grown as a writer.
Comment #21: Monday, January 30, 2012 at 21:07:39
I love Incarceron. the story was amazing. :)
Comment #22: Tuesday, January 31, 2012 at 14:33:10
I liked Incarceron even though I figured out the big mystery with about 100 pages left.
Comment #23: Tuesday, January, 31, 2012 at 00:10:34
I love the Alan Bradley series! I have to pick up the second book. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
Comment #24: Tuesday, January 31, 2012 at 14:34:01
You should. I'll be picking up the third book in February.
Comment #25: Tuesday, January, 31, 2012 at 06:57:02
Wow I'm impressed that you can read and review so many books at the same time. You must take good notes! :)
Comment #26: Tuesday, January 31, 2012 at 14:35:05
I read for pleasure and I don't review every book I read. I don't keep notes beyond the first impressions I jot down when I first finish a book.
Comment #27: Tuesday, January, 31, 2012 at 07:24:37
Comment #28: Tuesday, January 31, 2012 at 14:37:12
I am like you. I read thick books very slowly and I can only handle one door stopper at a time.
Comment #29: Tuesday, January, 31, 2012 at 09:10:55
wow, lots of books on your list. IQ84 is on my tbr list, I just need to pick it up. Happy Reading!
Comment #30: Tuesday, January 31, 2012 at 14:38:31
1Q84 is beautifully written but it's long. I'm reading it VERY SLOWLY.
Comment #31: Tuesday, January 31, 2012 at 21:55:29
Nine books read?! Impressive! I like the variety of books you read. One of my goals this year is to read a little of everything. Just a way to mix it up a bit. Have a great reading week.
Comment #32: Friday, February 01, 2012 at 21:33:15
My tastes are rather eclectic. I very rarely read all of one kind of thing in any given week, unless it's for research.
