It's Monday~What are you reading? 10/29/12

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, check it out and join in the fun! This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!

I'm a bit late getting my post up today...I've been so stinking busy lately that I can hardly see straight! I hope everyone had a fantastic week of reading and reviewing and enjoying every bookish little thing. 

Exciting news: You've probably noticed that I have a new blog design! It's pretty, no? I'm still getting used to it myself! Feel free to grab my lovely button on the sidebar. 

I didn't do any traditional reviews this week. I have started the 30 Day Book Challenge. If you haven't seen this before you should check it out by clicking on that link. Some of the questions are difficult to answer...I suppose that's why it's called a challenge.

Check out my answers here:

Day 1 Favorite book
Day 2 Least favorite book
Day 3 Book that surprised me
Day 4 Book that reminds me of home
Day 5 Nonfiction book that I enjoyed


I've joined in the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop hosted by Judith at Leeswammes'. 50 bloggers giving away books with literary merit!? Fabulous! Please enter my giveaway here. Don't forget to visit Judith's blog to enter the rest of the fab giveaways!  

Current Read:


I'm currently reading the final pages of Charlotte and Emily by Jude Morgan. What a gorgeous book!

Next up will be one of these:







After these three books I'm on a library ban! Well, a self-imposed ban on requesting more books that is. I've got to get to all of the lovely review books waiting for me. So, if you fellow bloggers could refrain from talking about awesome books for the next few weeks you'd be doing me a solid. Ha, as if!

Have a great week everyone!

Once again, don't forget to enter my giveaway!

  2. Charlotte & Emily looks tempting! And it's not good for my stacks or my budget to keep finding delightful books, but I can't resist. Now I'm trying to write them down in a pretty journal I got....instead of immediately clicking over to Amazon.

    Thanks for visiting!

  4. The cover of Charlotte and Emily is enough to make you want to read it! The Garden of Evening Mists is also beautiful. There's just one problem with your request - Library Loot posts :p

    1. No more Library Loot posts for me..for a while anyway ;) I love that meme but I always wished that more people participated. Doesn't everyone in the world love the library the way we do? ;)
