It's Monday! What Are You Reading? - January 13th, 2014



This weekly meme is sponsored by Book Journey, and we talk about things we read last week, and our plans for what we'll read this coming week. 

Last Week:

Well, I did well with one of my New Year's resolutions to try to have at least 2 book reviews a week, because I had 3 last week:

And then I blogged almost every day last week by filling in with some memes:

The Clear Your Shelves Giveaway also ended on Friday, the 10th, so I've still got to go into the Rafflecopter and pick the winner.  Will probably do that today some time.

This Week:
One reason I'm doing this post today instead of a review like I'd hoped, is because the current book I'm reading is over 500 pages, and while it's really getting good, it has a lot of great detail, and so I'm making sure that I read as close as I can.  I'm hoping to finish it tonight to review tomorrow, it is The Diviners by Libba Bray.  I will probably participate in Waiting on Wednesday, and then hopefully, depending on the length of the next book I read, will either have a review on Thursday or Friday.  I'm thinking I will be reading an e-galley by Scott Sigler next called Pandemic, the third in the Infected series, which I've enjoyed the first two from that series.    I will of course have a Stacking the Shelves, either Saturday or Sunday, and not sure what book I will read after Pandemic.  Possibly Pulse, by Patrick Carman, so that I can be ready to read the ARC of it that I won from Epic Reads.

And plans can always change.  My step-dad will be having surgery on Thursday night, and then my last day at the bookstore for awhile, since I'm going to seasonal help, will be on Saturday.  So, how have you done with your resolutions so far?  And do you have any exciting plans for the upcoming week?

  2. You did pretty well! I managed to finish a book for today and review it, and I'm hoping to read The Bone Season and a pair of review books for blog tours!

  4. I'm supposed to read 3 books a week to reach my goals...I think. I'm hopeless at math. XD So far, I've been doing that! I'm happy. :) I'm off to read your review of Insomnia now. That was a cool book!

    1. There are some weeks I can do 3, but it depends on the size of the book, as well as whether I'm working at my part time job, or have lots going on. Good luck with your goals!

  5. 2 reviews a week is impressive, good luck with your goal! I heard The Diviners was good.

    1. One of the problems with 2 reviews a week is when I have to wait to review a book, or at least post the review 30 days before it is published. That's one reason I wait on some of the e-galleys I get until closer to their publishing date. Thanks for stopping by!

  6. I am curious to read your review on "Pandemic" and "The Infected Series." They remind me of a wonderful book I just finished (book one in a trilogy), "Chasing A Miracle" by Eliot Hartford Bailey http://eliothbailey.com/, which is about a scientist whose pregnant wife is infected with a deadly virus. I seriously would love to see this one on the big screen! I will watch for your reviews!

    1. I feel like the series that Pandemic is a part of could be a good movie as well! Thanks for sharing with me about Chasing a Miracle. I'll have to check that one out!
