It’s Monday! What are you reading? May 23, 2011
This is a weekly meme run by Book Journey!
Post the books completed last week, the books you are currently reading, and the books you hope to finish this week.
Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme that was created by Marcia at The Printed Page, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring meme (details here). It is hosted at Mari Reads for the month of May.
Again, wicked busy this week. I met Jonny 5 of the Flobots on Monday, which was really exciting because the Flobots are my favorite local band! I also started taking Jujitsu lessons from a friend, so that’ll be a weekly thing on Wednesdays.
This coming week should be slightly less busy until later in the week, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it stays that way! Not only have I not been doing much reading, I am just super far behind on all my house work.
Books completed last week:
Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire – J.K. Rowling: I loved this book! It’s my favorite of the series so far, and to me, this one was the first one that was really all about what this series is in my mind. If you want to read my review, I posted it here a few days ago.
Books I’m reading this week:
The Rose Without a Thorn – Jean Plaidy: I totally forgot that it was time for me to read this one for Jean Plaidy week on Royal Reviews. This is totally why I put my review schedule on my calendar, lol. So I started it last week in place of something else, and I’ll finish it in a day or two.
The Lovely Bones – Alice Sebold: We’re having a books to movies week on Royals soon, and I picked this one since it’s been on my TBR list forever! I’m looking forward to it!
A Creed in Stone Creek – Linda Lael Miller: So I never started this one last week because I realized I needed to read my Jean Plaidy book. In the very rare chance that I finish BOTH of my other books this week, I will start this one.
Anna Karenina – Leo Tolstoy: Page 662. A decent amount of AK progress this week as well. I’m a couple of chapters away from finishing Part 6, and I’m hoping that I can trudge through this election section reasonably quickly.
Books I acquired this week:
I’m still trying to avoid buying books, but I didn’t get anything in the mail this week either, so no new books. Which is really fine because I have sooooo many I need to read already!
What I watched this week:
- Castle – That season finale totally had me bawling! What a hard one to see.
- Fashion Police, The Soup, Chelsea Lately, The Ellen Degeneres Show, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, 1 girl 5 gays, Kourtney & Kim Take New York, Khloe & Lamar, Keeping Up With the Kardashians
- Valentine’s Day
- The Vampire Diaries
