What Are You Reading: June 04, 2012: 06/03/12

Here it is a normal Sunday, meaning I have the time and energy to write this post early! My favorite read last week was Emily the Strange: Dark Times by Rob Reger.

I am still listening to The Improbable Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (audio) edited by John Joseph Adams. I didn't make much progress last week because my husband is mostly on summer break (except for a night class he's teaching). That means I'm chauffeuring him around. While I love the company, our conversations are getting in the way of my Sherlock Holmes audio time.

My goal this week is to finish In the Night Garden by Catherynne M. Valente and get start on the sequel.

What about you?

I think I'd really love the Sherlock Holmes stories! Must read them sometime! They are already on my e-reader. :)

These are fun. There is a supernatural theme to most of these stories.

Shelleyrae @ Book'd Out

Emily The Strange sounds like something my daughter would like. Thanks for stopping by Book'd Out earlier!

Pussreboots

It's kind of like being The Pigeon except that you usually get your way.

The Books of My Life

Sound very amusing and intriguing titles ... I like The Perils of Peppermints and Zombie Haiku: Good Poetry for Your...Brains. LOL.

Pussreboots

Although they have similarly goofy titles, they are very different sorts of books.

I need to get a copy of the Zombie Haiku for my son ˜ who is into everything zombie. :)

Happy reading!

I think he'll enjoy it. It's certainly one of the most memorable zombie books I've read.

Pussreboots

Start with the original stories first before going on to the ones done by other authors.
