It’s Monday! What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.
Other Than Reading...
This has been another quiet week. It is definitely fall-like. The skies are gray and there is rain or drizzle almost every day. It should make for quality reading time but, since I discovered Bejeweled Blitz on Facebook, I have spent hours upon hours trying to rack up high scores and meet challenges. Of course, I've been watching the World Series too. What that means is I'm not getting much reading done. It doesn't help that the adult book I decided to read this week wasn't very good at keeping my interest.
I have been working at paring down my TBR mountains. I have filled four brown paper grocery bags with adult books that I don't think I'll ever read. I have also filled three bags of YA for my high school media center and half a bag of Middle Grade books for my elementary media center. I am down to only 466 print adult books and 176 print young adult books including review copies. Of course, if you add back the Kindle books and SYNC audio books I've accumulated, my To Read stack number 1952. It is just nice to get under 2000.
October was a good reading month. I read 23 books with 7660 pages. Thirteen of the books were from my TBR mountains and the other ten were review books.
Read Last Week
The Tournament at Gorlan by John Flanagan and enjoyed meeting Halt as a young man. My review will be posted on December 19.
I also had a chance to meet Willowdean Dickson when I read Dumplin' by Julie Murphy. I can see why this book is getting so much buzz. It was great. My review will be posted on December 24.
I am finally getting a chance to read Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo.
- Secrets of the Dragon Tomb by Patrick Samphire (Jan. 12)
- Teen Frankenstein by Chandler Baker (Jan. 12)
- Among Others by Jo Walton
- The Anatomical Shape of the Heart by Jenn Bennett
- Young Widows Club by Alexandra Coutts
The Iron Warrior by Julie Kagawa is the final book in her Iron Fey series. I have enjoyed all the rest and can't wait to read this one.
You can check Inside of a Dog (my other blog) to see what adult books I read, reviewed, and plan to read.
