It's Monday, What Are You Reading? - 7/13

imwayr713It's Monday, What Are You Reading keeps me focused on my reading goals and is hosted by J. Kaye's Book Blog. Each week I look at what books I finished, started, and/or abandoned and what I plan on doing the following week.

Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson (239/592) - loved it!
Neil Armstrong is My Uncle by Nan Marino (154) - loved it!

Hollywood is Like High School With Money by Zoey Dean (248/277) - this is fun - kind of a Devil Wears Prada but working in the film industry.
Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson (77/277) - quiet but interesting, you have to pay attention. Intense.
Another Faust by Dina and Daniel Nayeri (22/387) - love the idea behind it. Just met all of the characters and learned their deepest, darkest desires.
Intertwined by Gena Showalter (46/442) - I wanna meet Aden, without the souls in his head, of course.
Owly: Tiny Tales by Andy Runton (wordless) (90/172)

Not counting the wordless book I read 786 pg which was 86% of goal!


I am having a hard time keeping up with everything so I'm dubbing this week DEAR AndRew- Drop Everything And Read and Review Week! For every book I read, I will review it right away and complete an overdue review!

I'm going to read whatever I want this week - could be some library books, some old In My Mailbox books, books for Reading Challenges, or just a book that's been on my shelf for years! I only have ONE book that must be finished this week:

Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson (200/277) - for a teacher bookclub 7/14

Ok, I'm hoping this re-ignites my reading passion. Too much required reading dampens my soul! What's on your list this week?


  1. I have got "Intertwined" by Gena Showalter on my wish list!

  2. A week where you loved both books you read? That's the best. Hope this coming wee is as pleasing.

  3. I have not heard of Interwined -- I will have to check it out!

  4. Sounds really great! I hope you have fun during your DEAR AndRew week. I can't wait to read your reviews!

  5. Hollywood is Like High School With Money sounds like my kind of book although I don't think I've read Zoey Dean before. Good luck with DEAR andRew!

  6. I loved Wintergirls. It really is quietly intense. So good though.

    I wish I had the Neil Armstrong one and Intertwined. They sound AMAZING.


  7. I've had a couple of Dear Andrew weeks (the past two). Once I'm finished reviewing 2-3 more review books I'm going to relax and read my own books for a while. I'm happy to say I've been enjoying the review books.

    Have a great week!

  8. yes, i've heard wintergirls is intense. i'm waiting to get into "the mood" before reading it. but definitely have it on my tbr pile. into light summer reading at the moment.


Thanks for chatting! I love comments and look forward to reading yours! I may not reply right away, but I am listening! Keep reading and don't forget to be awesome!
