The Sunday Post











It's Monday!  What Are You Reading? is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. Sunday Post is hosted by Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

I hope everyone had a great week! My husband and I volunteered to be balloon handlers in our local holiday parade yesterday through my job. It was a little windy so that made it a little interesting. Our hands are still cramped from hanging on to the ropes! It was a lot of fun though.

  3. Great mix of books! Girl in Translation sounds really good! I'm studying my MA in publishing in London right now, so I'll be celebrating Thanksgiving from across the pond. :)

  12. Happy Thanksgiving! I loved Girl in Translation and thought the audio book was fantastic too. I also really liked The House of Hades (though I prefer the narrator for the first 3 books over Nick Chamian who reads the last 2). That series and the Percy Jackson series are some of my favorite YA books.

    I loved the audio versions of the Lunar Chronicles and I hope to listen to Winter eventually. I like reading the books in print and then listening to them in audio later. That way if I miss anything while driving it doesn't matter :)

  13. I haven't really taken to Rick Riordan but can understand his appeal to young readers - will really have to read those novels in order.
