What Are You Reading: May 14, 2012: 05/13/12
Everything is turned in. I get hooded on Saturday! Now I'm just trying to get ready for the big day, so I haven't been reading loads and loads.
My favorite read last week was The Last Little Blue Envelope by Maureen Johnson. I know the series has reached it's logical conclusion but I'd love to revisit the characters. Oliver was such an interesting addition and I want to know more about his story.
My current car audio book is The Improbable Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (audio) edited by John Joseph Adams. The stories are a lot of fun but boy does Adams love to babble in between the stories. Each story has its own long introduction. I get it — he loves Sherlock Holmes and had fun on the project but sheesh — this audio collection could be half the length (9 CDs instead of 18) without all his babbling.
My goal this week is to finish Island Sting by Bonnie J. Doerr and then get started on Amulet 4: The Last Council by Kazu Kibuishi.
What about you?

Thank you. It's going to be mostly a week of late spring cleaning to get ready for house guests.

Oh, I really need to read The Last Little Blue Envelope! The first was so good! And Body and Soul, and that series! It looks so good! Hope you enjoy your books! Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!
Comment #6: Monday, May 14, 2012 at 11:05:22
Yes... should read The Last Little Blue Envelope. The Ghost and the Goth series ended up being much better than I thought the premise sounded.

I recently started reading the Kathy Reichs Temperance Brennan series. I love the tv show Bones and the first book in the series was pretty good.
Have a great week!

I like the goofier TV series over the books, but I have a bunch of them on hand, so I'm reading them.
Comment #13: Monday, May 14, 2012 at 10:26:40
I've heard good things about the Blue Envelope series, it's on my TBR list!
Comment #14: Monday, May 14, 2012 at 11:23:30
Move the series to the top of your TBR. They are lovely books.
Comment #15: Monday, May 14, 2012 at 10:53:55
I know what you mean about wanting to revisit characters, some are just too good to let go.
See you next week!
Comment #16: Monday, May 14, 2012 at 11:25:05
Thank you for stopping by.

My Invisible Boyfriend sounds pretty funny. :)
Comment #18: Monday, May 14, 2012 at 11:27:10
It was a cute book.
Comment #19: Monday, May 14, 2012 at 19:57:43
That's so funny that the narrator rambles in between your Sherlock Holmes stories. It's much easier to deal with when you have a physical book - you can just flip ahead!
Comment #20: Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 11:46:59
It's not really a problem. I have a track skipping option on my steering wheel. It's just a waste of CDs and in print form, paper. Because the introductions to each story are boring and repetitive!
Comment #21: Monday, May 14, 2012 at 19:59:45
How exciting to be graduating!
Have a great reading week!
Comment #22: Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 11:55:59
It is exciting but also a bit scary. I need to jump back into the workforce now.
Comment #23: Monday, May 14, 2012 at 21:16:19
The Titanic book looks awesome. Hope its a good one. Lots of interest in the Titanic this year...its really fascinating.
Happy reading this week!
Comment #24: Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 11:55:59
The Titanic book is good. It includes transcripts from the inquest that happened after the sinking. It's fascinating to read the testimony.
Comment #25: Monday, May 14, 2012 at 22:22:07
Wow... great reading and posting!! So many books!! Thx for hoppin' by my Monday!
Comment #26: Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 12:03:22
Not as many as when I was reading for school. I seem to be slowing down a bit.
Comment #27: Monday, May 14, 2012 at 23:28:20
Oh! Glad to hear you enjoyed The Last Little Blue Envelope, I've got that one on my Nook and need to pick it up.
Have a fabulous reading week and thanks so much for stopping by earlier!

Bump Maureen's book to the top of your reading on your Nook.
Comment #29: Tuesday, May 15, 2012 at 00:37:55
I just finished a collection of Sherlock Holmes stories, too. Such fun!
Comment #30: Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 12:06:03
Which one did you finish?
Comment #31: Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 15:31:51
The Adventures and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes. It's two published together.
Comment #32: Tuesday, May 22, 2012 at 13:29:53
OK! I've read most of the originals, although I do have a couple of the later stories to still finish. Memoirs is on my TBR.
