What Are You Reading: September 10, 2012: 09/09/12
My favorite book last week was Ghouls Just Haunt to Have Fun by Victoria Laurie. It's the third of the series. I feel like the author hit her stride here. She knows her characters and how they work together. She's also thrown in a new psychic to work with her main character. He's a nice diversion from the sexy boyfriend and neurotic but loyal business partner.
From last week's crazy amount of reading, all that's left to finish is Midori by Moonlight by Wendy Nelson Tokunda. I do have to admit that I sent back two books unread because I just wasn't in the mood for them: X-Isle and Shine. That, though, gave me time to finish two from my own collection: The Wedding Officer by Anthony Capella and Flu by Wayne Simmons.
This week I'd like to finish two audios: Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer and One False Note by Gordon Korman. I would also like to start The Serpent's Shadow by Rick Riordan and Garment of Shadows by Laurie R. King. I guess it will be my week of shadows. From my library pile, I need to read: Eutopia by David Nickle and get started on: The Care and Feeding of Books Old and New by Margot Rosenberg, Shadow Hills by Anastasia Hopcus, and The Exile of Sara Stevenson by Darci Hannah.
What about you?

wow, you were busy, I wish my week would have been that productive, this week I hope is better.
thanks for visiting my blog

I watched less TV to make more time for reading. I hope your week is as productive as you wish.
Comment #3: Monday, September 10, 2012 at 00:25:22
Looks like you had a really good week.
Comment #4: Monday, September 10, 2012 at 12:14:16
The Laurie book was fun. I have the previous too as well to review on my blog.
Comment #5: Monday, September 10, 2012 at 07:07:38
Aww I love Corduroy. One of my favorite picture books. :)
Have a great week!
Comment #6: Monday, September 10, 2012 at 12:16:10
Corduroy was a favorite of mine as a kid. It holds up.
Comment #7: Monday, September 10, 2012 at 07:37:20
Gordon Korman was one of my all-time favorite authors when I was growing up. I hope you enjoy The 39 Clues series as much as I did.
Comment #8: Monday, September 10, 2012 at 12:21:13
It's fun so far and makes a good audio series. I have the third book on hold.
Comment #9: Monday, September 10, 2012 at 08:28:26
Mansfield Park is one of Austen's that I haven't yet read.
Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

And for me it's one of the few I've actually read: the others being Pride and Prejudice and Lady Susan.
Comment #11: Monday, September 10, 2012 at 09:26:20
LOL on the week of shadows =) Funny how that happens sometimes with similar titles but totally different subject material. And I am always amazed at the amount of books you get to read. (Jealous!)
Comment #12: Monday, September 10, 2012 at 12:26:32
That sort of weird coincidence happens frequently for me. I read as much as I do by not watching much TV and by listening to a lot of audios. My boss allows (encourages!) me to listen to audios while I'm cataloging.
Comment #13: Monday, September 10, 2012 at 10:36:07
I get a kick out of Victoria Laurie's books they have so much underlying humor that I just find myself smiling all the way through.
Comment #14: Monday, September 10, 2012 at 12:27:03
I found the first two books in the series flawed but good enough to keep reading. Book three is the first one I would call a page turner.
Comment #15: Monday, September 10, 2012 at 11:51:46
Thanks for stopping by to visit. I know it is so hard to read a book you are not in the mood for, down the road the story will still be there for you to enjoy. Aren't books great that way?
Hope you have a wonderful week!
Comment #16: Monday, September 10, 2012 at 12:29:15
Books are very patient with reluctant readers.
Comment #17: Monday, September 10, 2012 at 18:39:47
Lots of great reads this week - I hope you enjoy them. :)
Thank you for stopping by Between the Bind!

You're welcome. I hope I do too. Happy reading.
Comment #19: Monday, September 10, 2012 at 21:29:31
The Victoria Laurie series is one I've been dying to start. I have the first couple in my TBR. Have a great week!
Comment #20: Wednesday, September 12, 2012 at 17:55:15
The first two are OK but they didn't suck me in like the third one did.
Comment #21: Monday, September 10, 2012 at 21:50:07
I really enjoyed Life As We Knew It, although I don't know how the audio will be. I tried reading the second in the series and just couldn't get through it, though.
Comment #22: Wednesday, September 12, 2012 at 17:57:15
I've enjoyed Life as We Knew It but I don't have any current plans to read the sequel.
Comment #23: Monday, September 10, 2012 at 23:37:51
Wow, you've been really busy this week!
Comment #24: Wednesday, September 12, 2012 at 17:57:15
I stayed up a little too late each night and I didn't watch quite as much TV.
Comment #25: Tuesday, September 11, 2012 at 02:39:35
That series has long been on my to read list!
Have a great reading week
Comment #26: Wednesday, September 12, 2012 at 18:01:23
It was on mine for a couple years before I started reading it.
Comment #27: Tuesday, September 11, 2012 at 13:41:20
How are the audiobooks? I have never tried but am planning to.
Comment #28: Wednesday, September 12, 2012 at 18:02:34
A good audio book depends on two things: the narrators' ability to bring the characters to life and the books' translating well to the medium. I have some favorite narrators Barbara Rosenblat for example who I will listen to regardless of the book. But getting into audio books is trial end error to learn your personal tastes.
Comment #29: Tuesday, September 11, 2012 at 13:57:56
I can't wait to see what you think of El Iluminado. I looked it up and it it sounds like a great read. I hope you have a lovely reading week as always! Check out my It's Monday! post :)
Comment #30: Wednesday, September 12, 2012 at 18:09:35
I'm about twenty pages into it. I'm not sure about the art style yet but I like the story.
Comment #31: Thursday, September 13, 2012 at 14:20:58
I enjoy it when I accidentally happen to read books that have a common theme. Happy Reading!
Comment #32: Sunday, September 16, 2012 at 21:23:42
So do I!
