It's Monday! What Are You Reading? - February 9th, 2015

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:

I got my goal of two reviews in last week.
And I am now a much bigger fan of JLA than I knew I would be.  I am in love with her books!  Probably will be grabbing all of them that I can get my hands on from now on!  Oh yeah, I did DNF one book, Puppet by Pauline C. Harris.  It was working towards getting my Netgalley feedback ratio back up, unfortunately I had to leave not so good feedback on the site, and I won't blog about it if I didn't finish it.  I had planned to read The Sin Eater's Daughter egalley I had last week, but it kept getting stuck at page 5 or so, and I had to give up.  I was very upset by that.

Currently reading:

As I just mentioned, I'm so agog over JLA now, that I had to read on to the second book in the series I started last week.  So I'm currently devouring it whenever I have a spare minute.


This week:

As I mentioned last week, I'm still trying to get caught up on egalleys, and I also found out that my feedback ratio on Netgalley is down to 77%, so I must get caught up on those as well.  As you can see I got one done, even if I didn't actually finish it above.  Here are my plans for this week when I finish my current read:
I'm really hoping to get those all read this week, but some may bleed over into next week.  I have to work both tonight and tomorrow night at the bookstore where I work part time, so that will cut into reading time this week.

    1. I will stop by and check out the giveaways, I did already comment on your Monday post, probably at the same time you were commenting here! :-)

  2. It's so fun to get really into one author! I feel like that never happens to me anymore...I used to do that all the time before I started blogging. And - I need to check my Netgalley ratio...I can't find it on the new design. It used to be so prominently displayed :(

    1. It happens once in a great while, but not like this as often. I hate how they've changed it to be so hard to find. It's on your profile in the information up by your picture. Very small print in my opinion.

  4. I'm hoping to start JLA's Dark Elements series soon. It's part of my winter tbr list. This is my first week doing this meme, I figured I need help organizing what I want to get accomplished during the week. I work in bookstore, too (and I work tonight), so that'll keep me away from my books as well (ironic isn't it?). Happy reading! This is what I'm READING this week.

    1. Sooooooo good! Hope you get to them soon. It is helpful to do this one, or else the Sunday post, in order to get organized. I have to work again tonight at the bookstore. So more time away from reading. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Armentrout has been tempting me lately. I've seen nothing but positive things about her books and they just look so tempting! I don't want to even talk about my NetGalley ratio. It starts heading toward presentable and then I go on a requesting spree. Oh well. Have a great week and happy reading!

    1. I had a friend who used to go on and on about her and I never picked her up till last year. Now, after two books, I'm hooked! I was so good on Netgalley till just recently when I seem to be requesting constantly. But what can I do, I want books! :-) Thanks so much for stopping by!

    1. I haven't had a bad read from her yet, they've all been ones I've just fallen in love with. Hoping it works that way with all her books! Can't wait to start Salt and Stone today! Thanks for stopping by!

  9. Fun to find an author that you just can't get enough of. Well done with book reviews, I managed 2 but I'm still behind lol. Have a great week and happy reading :)

    1. Oh yeah, I'm still behind where I'd like to be. I'd really like to get where I'm reviewing the egalleys closer to a month before they are published instead of the week they are published. That way I'm ahead of the game. Who knows if I'll ever get to that point again. But we keep trying! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  10. I will never ever get caught up on my ebooks. I just keep hoping....as I read the paper books, LOL.

    1. I know. We never will. I'll never be caught up on ANY of my TBR piles or lists. Unless I could clone myself and make my clone go to work and I do the reading. And even then I might need another clone to help me with the reading. :-) Thanks for visiting!

  11. Oooh la la so many good books! I love Jennifer Armentrout after reading the Lux series so I felt so delighted and relieved that you like her more recent books because it's been too long since I've read one of her books:) I hope the Sin Eater's Daughter ends up working!
    Winner's Curse is amazing so good luck with that one!;)

    1. I have to go back and read all her old books that I didn't read yet now. I have given up on The Sin Eater's Daughter until I get a copy of it I guess. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  12. I've not heard of any of the books on your list, although I like the sounds of Salt & Stone. Guess I need to check out the first book in that series first though.
