What Are You Reading: May 07, 2012: 05/06/12
All I need to do now is edit my last term paper. Then I'm done with my MLIS studies! As you can see, though, that week of serious paper writing has left me little time to read. I only finished five books and most of them were short.
My favorite read last week was Cereal Murders by Diane Mott Davidson. As with the other books in the series, I listened to the audio. I plan to keep going with the series but right now I have some other audios on hand I want to listen to.
I still haven't finished Watchlist: A Serial Thriller edited by Jeffery Deaver but I in the last hour or so. I plan to finish it by Tuesday night so I can give it to a friend at the next Bookcrossing meeting. I would also like to finish Deadly Décisions by Kathy Reichs. Of course, that was my goal last week too. I might also finish The Last Little Blue Envelope by Maureen Johnson.
What about you?

I'm so glad you liked Cereal Murders. I remember it was fun. Are you enjoying the Reichs series? That is one I like too. Congrats on almost finishing your studies. Happy Reading!
Comment #2: Monday, May 07, 2012 at 13:26:14
The Reichs series is good too but not as addicting as Mott's series is for me at least.
Comment #3: Monday, May 07, 2012 at 02:51:06
Thanks for visiting my blog and for your well wishes. You have a huge line-up of books this week ~ happy reading :)
Comment #4: Monday, May 07, 2012 at 13:27:25
You're welcome. Most of the books I have going now I won't finish this week.
Comment #5: Monday, May 07, 2012 at 02:56:14
I've always enjoyed Diane Mott's series. Congrats on being done with your MLIS studies!
Enjoy your reading week!
Comment #6: Monday, May 07, 2012 at 13:30:33
Thank you. I'm almost done just one more paper to edit and turn in.
Comment #7: Monday, May 07, 2012 at 06:37:15
Congratulations on your MLIS! Are you currently working in a library? I haven't read The Last Little Blue Envelope yet though I did check it out from the library once. I hope I'll get to it some time. I liked 13 Little Blue Envelopes. I have read My Invisible Boyfriend. Libraries Wars sounds fun. Have a great week!
Comment #8: Monday, May 07, 2012 at 13:32:03
I'm not currently working but I am looking for a job. The Last Little Blue Envelope is as good as the first book. Library Wars has a fascinating set up but the characters didn't work for me in the first volume. I haven't decided yet if I will try volume 2.
Comment #9: Monday, May 07, 2012 at 07:51:09
I think I've mentioned how I've enjoyed Diane Mott Davidson's books, but haven't read one in awhile. Love Walked In was another one I enjoyed. Thanks for visiting my blog, and have a great week.
Comment #10: Monday, May 07, 2012 at 13:38:15
Loved Walked In was wonderful for the first couple of chapters and then I lost interest in the characters.
Comment #11: Monday, May 07, 2012 at 08:01:12
A heavy week but enjoyable I think!
Comment #12: Monday, May 07, 2012 at 13:39:20
Last week was pretty light for me in terms of finishing books, but it was enjoyable.
Comment #13: Monday, May 07, 2012 at 08:09:48
So many books! I would like to read a Maureen Johnson this summer and I would love to read Little Blue Envelopes :)
Comment #14: Monday, May 07, 2012 at 13:40:20
Her Little Blue Envelopes series is charming. Happy reading.
Comment #15: Monday, May 07, 2012 at 10:52:00
You always have great list. The Davidson books are great but it's hard to read them one right after another.
Thanks for stopping by.
Comment #16: Monday, May 07, 2012 at 13:44:05
If I had access to all of Mott's books, I'd happily listen to them one right after another.
Comment #17: Monday, May 07, 2012 at 11:08:08
I'm hearing a lot of good things about Cereal Murders. Must check it out! :)
Comment #18: Monday, May 07, 2012 at 13:58:10
It's the third book in the series ... but the books can be read out of order.
Comment #19: Monday, May 07, 2012 at 17:07:52
Love Diana Mott Davidson's books! Glad you enjoyed Cereal Killers! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
Comment #20: Tuesday, May 08, 2012 at 13:47:10
You're welcome. I hope to start on The Last Suppers next month.
Comment #21: Monday, May 07, 2012 at 19:07:09
Wow! Busy, busy week! I also have 1Q84 but I haven't read it yet. It's on my list, heh. :)
Comment #22: Tuesday, May 08, 2012 at 13:52:30
I've been slowly reading 1Q84 since December. I'm still only a third of the way through it.
Comment #23: Monday, May 07, 2012 at 20:52:40
I used to love Diane Mott Davidson, but I lost track of the series over the years. The Housekeeper and the Professor, also by Yoko Ogawa, was one of my favorite reads last year. I've been looking for Hotel Iris. Enjoy your week!
Comment #24: Tuesday, May 08, 2012 at 13:55:05
The Housekepper and the Professor is on my wishlist. I plan to continue with 4 of Mott's series next month.
Comment #25: Monday, May 07, 2012 at 21:07:16
Deadly Decisions sounds great. I've only read one Kathy Reichs book, but it wasn't in that series.
Comment #26: Tuesday, May 08, 2012 at 13:57:10
Deadly Decisions is interesting. I hope to finish it soon.
Comment #27: Monday, May 07, 2012 at 22:13:42
I'm totally going to see about Library wars!! it looks awesome! :) Great week this week!
Happy reading :)
Comment #28: Tuesday, May 08, 2012 at 13:59:21
Library Wars has a great set up but I found the different characters a bit samey. I'm hoping volume 2 does more with developing them.
Comment #29: Monday, May 07, 2012 at 22:49:08
Congrats on being done with your MLIS! What program did you do?
I've been wanting to read the Victoria Laurie series. Did you like it?
Comment #30: Tuesday, May 08, 2012 at 14:01:24
I did San Jose State's online program. You can learn more here. The Victoria Laurie book was pretty much a Scooby Doo mystery for grown ups. I plan to keep going with the series.
Comment #31: Tuesday, May 08, 2012 at 17:12:22
I actually graduated from SJSU's program a few years ago. Congrats on finishing!
Comment #32: Wednesday, May 09, 2012 at 11:15:17
Nice! And thank you.
Comment #33: Thursday, May 10, 2012 at 21:19:26
Ooh, Deadly Décisions is such a great book! :) And I really need to read The Last Blue Envelope, read the first one, but never got to that one! Hope you have fun reading all of them! Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!
Comment #34: Monday, May 14, 2012 at 10:22:11
I'm enjoying Deadly Décisions. I hope to finish it soon. The Last Blue Envelope is worth reading.
