This great meme is hosted by Sheila at
Book Journey”.
It’s a great way to start the week and
find out what other bloggers are reading.
My To-Be-Read pile has grown to an
unbelievable number thanks to this meme.

I had a full reading week last week and another one ahead. I even forgot to list a book last week I had to read for a Virtual Tour this week, but I got it read and it was so good!! Even with a color coded spreadsheet there are times I make mistakes. One thing I did learn is that my weeks are so packed with reading commitments that reading is becoming more like work and not so much fun. My reading schedule is full through December and next year I am going to have to take a new look at how I handle review requests. I am sure many of you understand and may be in the same boat.

Here’s what I accomplished and the plan for the week.

  1. love Lorena’s writing, so that one should be a hoot!
    trying to click on your links sends up a message that pix on your site are protected and no going to the links you intend us to ); – thought you’d want to know 🙂

  2. All your books are new to me. I hope you enjoy them. I had a fantastic week of reading so it’s really difficult to pick a favorite book. I’m going to have go with a fan girl response and say the best (out of an extremely good set of books) was The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There by Catherynne M. Valente. Please come and see what else I’m reading.

  3. I’m interested to know what you thought of the Lippman, I’ve been seeing quite a buzz about that one 🙂
