It's Monday! 07/30/12

Hosted by Book Journey

I had a fabulous week of reading! I was a little off last week because of a long weekend of girly fun at the cabin but I now I'm back on track, woot woot!







What's next? I don't know!! I have a number of books on request at the local library and I'm just waiting to see what comes in this week. 

These are the two that show up as "in transit" so I'm guessing these will be my next reads:






Have a fantastic week of reading everyone!

  1. I like your books! Calling Invisible Women looks like a fun read. I'm in the mood for fun reads after two weeks finishing a slew of serious books, barring one fabulous thriller.

    1. It was definitely a fun read :) There are times when you need to read something like that! I try to sneak in a humorous book in between all the seriousness so I don't get too burnt out!

  2. Miss Peregrine's is a super fun read, you'll like it. Just beware, it's left wide open for a sequel. It's already been optioned for a movie!

    Happy reading this week :)

  3. Great books this week. I'm going to be starting Wolf Hall later this week as part of the read-a-long. I can't wait to start it.

    Have a great week and thanks for stopping by my blog!

    1. You're welcome Kristin, same to you! I hope you enjoy Wolf Hall :) I've never done a read-a-long, I might have to look into that!

  4. Nice looking selection of books I have never heard of. I do have Miss Peregrine's... on my TBR mountain somewhere though. Here is my Monday Report. Happy reading!

  5. "Visiting Sunny Chernobyl" looks really good. As I understand it the author visits sites of ecological disasters all over the world. This sounds like such an original concept but perhaps a disturbing book. Please keep us posted on what you think when you have finished it.

    1. Books that are disturbing usually make me think more than most, and they seem to teach me so much as well. I'll definitely let you what I thought of it when I'm done.

  6. Your two 'in transit' books are both on my to-read list. They both sound a little quirky.

    1. Don't they though? I love a good quirky read! Something different, something that opens your mind to a new way of thinking :) Thanks for stopping by Leslie!

    1. I hope you're able to read them Laurel, I'd love to hear what you think of them if you do!

      Thanks for stopping by today :)

  9. Great books! How nice you were able to read Hillary Mantel's books one after the other. I haven't tried them - I'm a bit worried about the size...

    Have a great week!

    1. I was glad to be able to read them like that (with just a little book in between) it helped me to dive right into the second book without having to familiarize myself with the characters again.

      Maybe think of Wolf Hall as being 2 books in one, perhaps the size won't be so intimidating, lol ;)

  10. I want to begin Wolf Hall so badly, but there are so many other books to read beforehand! I have serious first world problems. Looks like you've got a great week ahead of you!

    1. First world problems indeed, lol. You'll get to it eventually and I'd love to hear what you think when you do! Thanks for stopping by Brooke :)

  11. Wow! You got through Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies in one week? Impressive stuff!

    1. Thanks Lindsey. Bring Up the Bodies wasn't quite as hefty as Wolf Hall!

  12. So many awesome books that I want to read too :)

    1. I wonder if I'll ever get to the bottom of my tbr pile? Probably not, but I guess that's how I like it!

      Happy reading Sheila!

    1. I can't wait until it gets here, my library will send me an email when it does so I'm checking my mail a bit obsessively, lol.

      And yes, I'd love some contact info for your designer. I've been looking around for one, thanks!

  17. PS thanks for your comments about my blog design. I had ideas for my blog header but it was designed for me. Let me know if you want contact details :)

  18. I've been curious about Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. I have a copy of it sitting on my bookshelf. Maybe I'll get to it by the end of the month.
