What are you reading this week?


  1. I have a feeling I'm going to be the last person in the world to read The Hunger Games. I hope you have a great week in books.

  2. I not only got a ton of books for Christmas, but I also requested a ton of books from the library just before Christmas. I'm swimming in books!

    Here is my It's Monday! What Are You Reading? I hope you will stop by!

  3. Loved The Hunger Games! And I hope to get to Lola (and Anna) this year too.

  4. Oh my goodness, I hope you enjoy Lola. It is such a good book!

    My Monday list:

  5. I can't wait for your review of Creep. I didn't realise you read that much in a year 200, wowsa. Good luck with your goal.

  6. Happy New Year! My post reflects two weeks of reading. Please come see what I'm reading now.

    There are a bunch of us just now getting into the Hunger Games series.

  7. Did you happen to see the Hallmark movie version of Trading Christmas? They changed things a bit but I still enjoyed it. I listened to the novel - I liked it.

  8. Tana - Anna and the French Kiss is really good! I hope you enjoy it too.

    Marce - LOL! I don't read that much in a year. I've always wanted to read 200 books so I thought why not try to reach that goal in 2012?! We'll see how if I make it or not.

    Mary - No I did not see it. I DVR'd it, but never got around to watching it.

  9. I have The Heroine's Bookshelf on my TBR list. I think there is something really cool about the way that the literary favorites of your childhood and youth stay with you.
    Happy Reading!
