What Are You Reading: April 16, 2012: 04/15/12
I am trudging along with my research papers. I had grand plans on finishing a bunch of books this weekend but only managed two. That leaves me with a huge pile of library books coming due in a week. Hopefully I'll finish them, but realistically, I won't. That means I'll have to put them back on my wishlist and put them back on hold as they bubble up to the top of the list again.
My favorite read last week was Sapphique by Catherine Fisher. Most reviews seem to like Incarceron best but I disagree. I was more sucked into the sequel than I was to the original. Quickest 400+ pages I've read in a long time!
Last week I said I wanted to finish I Am Half Sick Of Shadows by Alan Bradley and The Lost Cities: A Drift House Voyage by Dale Peck.That's still true. I made large dents in both but didn't finish them. I still plan to start Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith.
What about you?

Looks like you had a pretty awesome bookish week. I think I might have to set aside a month for 1Q84 when I finally get to it too!
Comment #2: Monday, April 16, 2012 at 14:46:10
Rather than spend an entire month just reading 1Q84, I'm spreading out the experience over many weeks by only reading a chapter or two a week. That gives me time to mull what I've read. It's as complex as it is thick.

As always you have a lot happening. I read 100 Cupboards a while back. I think I have the next one in that series too... I really should read it I thought it was so good.
Comment #4: Monday, April 16, 2012 at 14:46:10
I loved 100 Cupboards but struggled with the sequel. I hope you like it better than I did.

As usual, you are the busy, busy reader! I admire that.
Here's my It's Monday! What Are You Reading? Please stop by and say hello!

I read after the kids go to bed, and in the mornings on the weekend. It's a nice way to relax.

I need to re-read The Book Thief - was so good. Zusak also has a book Called The Messenger that is fantastic but really different to The Book Thief. You can check out my Monday here.
Comment #8: Monday, April 16, 2012 at 14:57:12
I haven't read I am the Messenger but I plan to.

I am always amazed at the number of books you are reading at once. I do hope you get a chance to finish some of the library books before you have to return them. Have a great reading week!

I'm reading more books than I'd like right now because of the impending library due date. I'll certainly get Pricker Boy and I am Half-Sick of Shadows done by the due date. The others are still up in the air.

Some day I plan to read The Book Thief. Enjoy your week and your reads; and thanks for visiting my blog.
Comment #12: Monday, April 16, 2012 at 15:06:24
I have a lot of books planned for "some day." Happy reading.

Kearsley is on my wishlist with all her books!
Comment #14: Monday, April 16, 2012 at 16:07:25
It was my first Kearsley book. I'm not sure if I'll read others.
Comment #15: Monday, April, 16, 2012 at 10:25:06
I hate having to return books before I finish them! Good luck with your papers and reading this week.
Comment #16: Monday, April 16, 2012 at 16:19:02
Thank you. I'm making good progress on my papers. I will do my best to read through my library books before they are due.

Kristin @ Always With a Book
I always find that I am crunched for time with library books...I have a bunch on reserve and they always end up coming in when I need to read books for upcoming tours.
Good luck with your research papers.

That's what happened to me. I bunch of interlibrary loan books showed up at the same time as the hold books.
Comment #19: Monday, April, 16, 2012 at 11:55:56
The Little Blue Envelope series sounds interesting, I've wanted to read the first one for awhile. Hope you enjoy the sequel :)
Comment #20: Monday, April 16, 2012 at 16:24:15
I am enjoying the sequel. Both books are delightful. I hope you get a chance to read them.
Comment #21: Monday, April, 16, 2012 at 18:25:01
I really need to read the Last Little Blue Envelope. I hope you're enjoying it!
Comment #22: Monday, April 16, 2012 at 16:26:22
The Last Little Blue Envelope is great so far!
Comment #23: Monday, April, 16, 2012 at 19:26:55
You've been busy! Have a great week!

The Fisher books are really quick reads. 1Q84, though, is a commitment!
