It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (1)

Monday, January 23, 2012

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a meme run by Sheila at Book Journey, where we share the books we read and/or reviewed last week and what's on deck for this week. Now Jen and Kellee at Teach Mentor Texts have started an offshoot for kidlit fans: It's Monday! What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA. I just had to check it out!

Last week:
  • I finally finished the second book in the Sebastian St. Cyr mystery series, When Gods Die. I was only able to read in brief spurts, late at night, and the heavy details in this historical novel made it tough to keep my eyes open.
  • I finished my first NetGalley book of the year, Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes.
  • I started Incarnate by Jodi Meadows.
  • I absolutely devoured Ann Aguirre's Enclave. I read it in two sittings this weekend.
Plans for this week:
  • Read Hounded by Kevin Hearne.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old—when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer.

  • Finish Incarnate.

    Ana is new. For thousands of years in Range, a million souls have been reincarnated over and over, keeping their memories and experiences from previous lifetimes. When Ana was born, another soul vanished, and no one knows why. Ana needs to uncover the mistake that gave her someone else’s life, but will her quest threaten the peace of Heart and destroy the promise of reincarnation for all?

  • Start Airborn by Kenneth Oppel.

    In a swashbuckling adventure reminiscent of Jules Verne and Robert Louis Stevenson, Kenneth Oppel, author of the best-selling Silverwing trilogy, creates an imagined world in which the air is populated by transcontinental voyagers, pirates, and beings never before dreamed of by the humans who sail the skies.

I'll get some good alone time this weekend to read, so I'm hoping to make up some ground on my reading. It's been a slow start in 2012, and some of these are library books due back at the end of the month. Read, Logan, read!

Read, Logan, read! :D (Especially Hounded!) I'm so glad you loved Enclave!

Gina @ My Precious said...

I'm impressed by how many books you've already conquered in 2012. I've only read 4 books. I thought that was great. I think you've far surpassed that meager number. I'm happy you liked Enclave. It was AWESOME. I'm curious to see what you think of Incarnate. Did you get that one from NG too? I was denied. Harper Collins hates me. Oh well....

Sounds like some good books to look at. I have many to read, but will especially look at Hounded, which sounds just right for some students.

Missie, The Unread Reader said...

I just wanted to second Small's comment. "Read, Logan, read! :D (Especially Hounded!)"

You'll love Atticus and Oberon!

Maestra Amanda said...

You've got some great books!

I LOVE LOVE LOVED Goddess Interrupted, and New Girl was really good too (I was surprised b/c I've tried to read Rebecca a couple times and could never finish).

Thanks for visiting my Monday post!


Chrissie (Once Upon a Series) said...

Every Other Day and Enclave both look so good - I'm really hoping to get a chance to read them soon!

Loved Airborn, but for some reason never went back and finished the series. I have heard good things about Incarnate, but I really dislike the cover. Do I need to get over that and read the book?

~Sara @ Just Another Story said...

I'm reading Incarnate now. I'm really enjoying it. More than I thought I would. I hope you are liking it as well.

Have a good week!

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

Yum. Airborn sounds fabulous!

Anonymous said...

NetGalley is great! Enjoy it!

Kellee said...

Airborn is such a great book! I am listening to the 2nd book now and so far so good :)

Happy reading this week!

You asked somewhere about the threaded commenting on blogger. Check out this link and see if you have everything set up properly. I hope that helps!

Ari (Reading After Midnight) said...

I want to read Hounded too, I don't know why I keep skipping it (there are so many new books distracting me from it).
I hope you will like Incarnate, I liked it a lot, but I can't say the same about my book-friends. I'll wait to see what you think of it ;)
I'm checking Airborn right now, and see what's about :)

Happy midnight reading!
