What are you reading this week?

I have an affiliate relationship with Malaprop's, my local independent bookstore located in downtown Asheville, NC; and Better World Books. I will receive a small commission at no cost to you if you purchase books through links on my site.


  1. I enjoyed Horns and I just started Heartshaped Box. I look forward to your review of Replacements, I have been intrigued.

    My post

  2. Of the books on your list, I've only read The Replacement though I do have The Everafter. I am interested in finding out more about Ballad of the Whiskey Robber though. What a great title!

  3. I just bought my niece the Penderwicks for her birthday this summer. I read it a while ago and thoroughly enjoyed it.

  4. You've had a very big reading week. I embarrassed of mine compared to yours.

  5. I am not familiar with any of those I have to admit but I definitely hope that you enjoy them.

  6. I am also reading The Replacement. I guess it was a pretty normal week of reading for me. Please come see what I've read.

  7. I've heard some interesting things about The Replacement. Did you like it?

  8. So many good titles! I read the Penderwicks last summer and I think it is a great kids book. Both The Replacements and Curse of the Wendigo sound good!! I might have to read one this month.

    I loved Horns, but Heart Shaped Box scared me too much to finish!

  9. I'm going to try and read some Lovecraft before Halloween! I loved Heart Shaped Box and really need to pick up Horns!

    Happy Reading!

  10. I haven't heard of any of these books but I will definitely check them out.

    I did some Halloween reading this past week, too, although they weren't too spooky. Stop by my It's Monday post if you get a chance.

  11. Love the subtitle of The Penderwicks!

  12. I was iffy on reading Heart-shaped Box, but your review makes me want to read it! Happy reading this week.


Thanks for taking the time to comment! Have a great day!
