It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? hosted at Book Journey
It's Monday!  What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Another busy week! I didn't get much reading done, but I did get a few posts up.

Review: Ava's Man by Rick Bragg--My first book by this author, but definitely not my last.

Review: Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie, read by Deanna Hurst--After overlooking one big issue with the audio (not the narrator), I loved this!

Review: Uglies by Scott Westerfeld--Dystopian novels are really not my thing.


Currently Reading:
The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers--A re-read for my book club. I can't remember anything about it, but I'm not loving it this time around.

Memory & Dream by Charles de Lint--A re-read. This reminds me why I love de Lint's work.

First Person America by Ann Banks--Extremely interesting first person accounts of life in America that were collected between 1938 and 1942.

The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente, read by the author--Reminds me of the best classic children's fantasy books.

Up Next:
I don't think I'll get to anything new this week.

  1. I do like the dystopia so I'll check your review. :-)
    I have seen The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making around the blog world...sounds like fun.
    Happy reading!

  2. My reading and reviewing have been poor this week. Hope it gets better this coming week! Have a good week yourself.

  3. I want to read The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making. I've only heard good things about it.

  4. I've read Uglies and Pretties but haven't gotten to Specials yet. The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland... is one of my favorite fantasies. I'm eagerly looking forward to reading the sequel.

    My favorite read last week was Chi's Sweet Home, Volume 1 by Kanata Konami. Please come see what else I'm reading.

  5. I'm not a big dystopian fan either, though I was okay with the Uglies series.

    The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making sounds great. The title alone tells me that. =)

  6. I'd like to get The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own for my daughter.

    Wishing you a great reading week,

  7. I love dystopia but haven't read Uglies. You have so many books going at once, should keep you busy!

    Have a good week.

  8. I am reading THE COURTESAN'S LOVER by Gabrielle Kimm

    I am hoping to get it finished this week.

    Have a great reading week

  9. I'm curious about Uglies, so I'll be watching for your review. Enjoy your week!


  10. Hi Jen! It looks like you are busy with your current reads. I am slowing down this week with my reading and hope to enjoy the summer. Happy Reading!

  11. I read The Heart is a Lonely Hunter in high school and found it very moving. I don't know how I would respond to it now, as an adult.

  12. Too bad dystopian isn't your thing, it's such a hot genre right now

  13. I'm not into the whole dystopian thing either...which is why I haven't read The Hunger Games series.

    Have a great week!
    Kristin @ Always With a Book

  14. I've been wanting to read UGLIES for a long time. I hope you get some reading done this week.

  15. I read The Girl Who... a while ago. I think it would be perfect for audio! I hope you enjoy the rest of it.


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