It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (2)

Monday, January 30, 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 finished Jodi Meadows' Incarnate. I hate to admit it, but it didn't live up to the hype for me.
  • I started, and abandoned, Joe Abercrombie's The Heroes. Don't get me wrong - it's a good book. I just don't have time to read such a long book right now.
  • I started Kate Klimo's Daughter of the Centaurs. I'm not loving it.
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.

  • 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.

Yes, these are the same as last week. I didn't have as much time to read as I thought! I did start Hounded today, and so far it's amazing.

Time is like that! We plan and think we will have time to accomplish more but time is a fleeting master which we cannot govern nor negotiate.

Thanks for stopping by! Did you/are you going to see One for the Money? I haven't, but plan to. As for Incarnate, I haven't read it yet. Books with lots of hype make me nervous because I get so wrapped up in the hype that I feel bad when I don't like it as much as everyone else.

Oh no, Incarnate looked so good! And the cover is drop dead gorgeous. Hounded is on my shelf, so I'll be interested to hear what you think about it. Have a great week :)

Oh, man, no likey Incarnate?

That stinks! I hope you like the rest of your reads this week.

@Shirley - Couldn't have said it better myself!

@rockyriver - As much as I dislike Katherine Heigl as Stephanie Plum, I do kind of want to see the movie. I may wait for the DVD though. Did you see it?

@Becca - I agree, the cover is fabulous. I hope you get a chance to read Hounded soon!

@Asher - I know. It was a bummer. I hope I can my thoughts together well enough to write a coherent review.

I'm glad you're enjoying your current read. I'm not liking mine right now but I have a hard time quitting.

I have gone back to a book which I started ages ago. I am finding it very good this time around!!! Hope you have a good week and thank you for visiting my blog.

Happy reading!

I know I keep happy dancing over Hounded, but I can't help it! I love Atticus and Oberon!
