What Are You Reading: February 27, 2012: 02/26/12

What Are You Reading?

My daughter's Scholastic book order came in. That combined with a trip to the library with her, results in a long list of books read (and listened to). Eight of the books this week were ones she read to me. My favorite of the lot is Spoon by Amy Krouse Rosenthal.

I'm still reading Mark Tidd in the Backwoods. Along with it, I have a bunch of other books from my TBR shelf going: Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan which is set locally and is hilarious, the third of the Fablehaven books by Brandon Mull, and, 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami.

I finished two books on last week's trip to the mountains: Everything on a Waffle by Polly Horvath and Bellwether by Connie Willis. The delightful Horvath book was our audio book for the ride home. Bellwether I read when I couldn't sleep.

I still want to finish Robopocalypse. I also want to finish Goddess Interrupted by Aimée Carter and Outside In by Maria V. Snyder.

Thank you. Same to you.

They sound great! :)

Pussreboots

Most of them were, except for the two I didn't finish.

Tanya Patrice

Looks like you had quite a good week! You're reading quite a few books that I have my eye on - like 1Q84 and Robopocalypse.



Comment #6: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 17:44:05

Pussreboots

I'm almost done with Robocalypse; it's very good. 1Q84 will take me many more weeks.



Comment #7: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 08:50:39

Helen Murdoch

I really enjoyed Maria Snyder's Inside Out and look forward to reading the sequel



Comment #8: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 17:46:58

Pussreboots

Outside In is as intense as the original... but it's a very different story.



Comment #9: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 08:56:13

Laurel-Rain Snow

I like Marilynne Robinson's books...and The Postmistress was another memorable read.

I'm going to have to check out June 29, 1999. I'm very curious.

Thanks for visiting my blog.



Comment #10: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 17:48:58

Pussreboots

June 29, 1999 is one of David Wiesner's wonderful picture books.



Comment #11: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 11:52:25

Laurie

Wow, that's a lot of reading. I only finished two last week but am hoping this week is better.

Glad to have found your blog via the Monday Hop. My Monday Post .



Comment #12: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 17:50:15

Pussreboots

It's five full length books and eight picture books, most of which I listened to as my daughter read.

LORI/DOLLYCAS

I used to love when the book orders game in but more the ordering process was a bear. The kids always wanted more than we could afford. :)

Have an awesome week!!



Comment #14: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 17:52:21

Pussreboots

That happens with mine too but they've gotten better at working with the budget I give them.

Great reading week for you!

Thank you.

I hope you're enjoying Outside In! I love tsubasa!! *-*



Comment #18: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 17:57:32

Pussreboots

I am enjoying Outside In. I like Tsubasa but only in its xxxHolic context. I don't think I would have stuck with the series as long without that connection.



Comment #19: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 22:04:35

Audrey (Bibliosaurus Text)

I was glad I listened to Robopocalypse. I think it would have been much more taxing to read in print. Hope you finish it soon!



Comment #20: Thursday, March 01, 2012 at 13:26:20

Pussreboots

I just finished Robopocalypse today. I agree about you re the strengths of the audio. It helped me keep the characters and locations apart.



Comment #21: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 23:24:12

Book Snob Wannabe

Wow that is a lot of books completed in one week. I wish I could do that. Thanks for stopping by my blog!



Comment #22: Thursday, March 01, 2012 at 13:28:12

Pussreboots

I read for an hour before bed and I don't watch a lot of TV. Both help me finish multiple books in a week.



Comment #23: Tuesday, February 28, 2012 at 00:41:29

Shelleyrae @ Book'd Out

My boys (aged 6 and 7) just discovered graphic novels and have been devouring the ones at the library this week.

Wishing you a great reading week!

Pussreboots

My son didn't discover them until third grade. Now he loves them.

I haven't heard of Spoon by Amy Krause Rosenthal, so I must seek it out. I adore her books.



Comment #26: Thursday, March 01, 2012 at 13:30:32

Pussreboots

There is a follow up book to Spoon published this year, Chopsticks. I haven't read it yet, but I plan to.



Comment #27: Tuesday, February 28, 2012 at 10:00:16

Maria @ Bookchilla

Yay for Outside In, and the Son of Neptune! I want to read Robocalypse as well.



Comment #28: Thursday, March 01, 2012 at 13:31:00

Pussreboots

I have about 80 pages left in Outside In and I just finished Robocalypse. Both are great books. Son of Neptune will take me a little longer as I've only just started.



Comment #29: Tuesday, February 28, 2012 at 19:07:18

Laura Ashlee

Oh, I'm definitely interested to see what you think of IQ84.



Comment #30: Thursday, March 01, 2012 at 13:33:30

Pussreboots

I am enjoying 1Q84 but I'm only reading a few chapters a week. It's going to take me until the start of summer to finish it.



Comment #31: Tuesday, February 28, 2012 at 19:15:28

Yvonne

Your book lists always look so good! Enjoy your reading!



Comment #32: Thursday, March 01, 2012 at 13:35:19

Pussreboots

Thank you. So far they've been good reads this week.



Comment #33: Wednesday, February 29, 2012 at 17:38:17

Most of the books you're currently reading or listening I really want to read :) Happy reading!!!



Comment #34: Thursday, March 01, 2012 at 13:36:37

Hopefully you'll get a chance to soon. Happy reading.

Hi - I'm late but at least getting here!
Looks like a fun week of reading.
Robopocalypse has my attention and I do hope you like Outside In. Have a happy rest of the week!

I loved both Robopacalypse and Outside In.
