What Are you Reading? Mondays (3)
Well, it's a Manic Monday once again, so it's time for "What Are You Reading?", a meme hosted by J. Kaye. Check it out and tell us what you are reading.
Last week the plan had been to finish up The Book of Lost Things by John Connelly, which I did, and read Love That Dog by Sharon Creech, which I did (two points for me :p). After that, the plan was a little fuzzy. I was waiting on two books from the library (Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale and Savvy by Ingrid Law), which just wouldn't come.
I ended up watching the movie version of I Capture the Castle, and then I just had to read it, so I requested it. It came in pretty quickly, along with Book of 1,000 Days (finally). Savvy is still a no-show. (Though a few other things came in.)
So I ended up reading:
The Book of Lost Things
Love That Dog
I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith
The Three Incestuous Sisters by Audrey Niffenegger (review here
This week, the plan is to read the couple of things that came in from the library for me:
Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale
Daughter of the Forest by Juliet Marillier, which came highly recommended by a friend (though she has steered me wrong [The Luxe before, I loved Marillier's Wildwood Dancing, which I reviewed).
Gonna try to get through Bitten by Kelley Armstrong, which is a reread for my bookclub.
Other than that, I'm not really sure. Still hoping for Savvy.
