It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

This a great weekly meme now being hosted by One Person's Journey Through a World of Books. It's a great way to look back on the week to see what you have read, what you are currently reading, and what you intend to read in the week ahead. It's also a great way to connect with other bloggers to see what they read, or intend to read, to discover new books or authors you may not have heard about, and to make new friends. So head on over to Sheila's site, sign up, and if you comment on at least 10 other blogs, you even have a chance to win a new book.

What I read last week:
1) Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl - I finally managed to finish the book. Read my review if you get the chance.

2) Gone by Lisa McMann - Picked this up at the library and started reading it there while my kids were at Reading Circle and finished it later that night. My review is also posted on my site.

Currently Reading:
1) The Moses Stone by James Becker - I am almost finished, and will post review soon.

2) Grave Secret by Charlaine Harris

3) City of Night by Michelle West - I just started this book.

Intend to Read:
1) Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld - I must return this to the library in one week. (I've got to stay clear of that library as it's caused me nothing but trouble lately. Talk about being the Queen of Renewals (and late fees, although I prefer to think of them as donations).)

2) Beguiled by Deeanne Gist & J. Mark Bertrand

I am on holidays next week so I will hopefully be catching up on my reading while soaking up the sun. Unfortunately, I promised my husband no internet for the week too, so I will be AWOL for a week starting Friday.

I will also be having my first contest soon! I promised myself I would do that as soon as I hit 50 followers and that happened far sooner than I expected. Thanks to everyone for being so supportive of my new blog, it's been exciting so far!!!!


  1. I am going to have to pick up Beautiful Creatures! Yours is the 5th good review I have read of the book!

    Grave Secret was great-I think you will enjoy it!

    Can't wait to see your reviews!

    Have a great reading week!

  2. Those sound like great books. Will add Beautiful Creatures to my list. I love your blog title by the way,perfect for a reader

  3. Thank you. I've always loved reading in front of the fire and I was really glad the title was not taken when I set up my blog.

  4. o0o your reading the Moses Stone I can't wait for your review...Have a great reading week.

  5. I'm almost finished The Moses Stone, actually I have about 50 pages left and I've really enjoyed it. Review should be up tomorrow.

  6. Have a wonderful time away! Let us know how you liked Beguiled as I have it on my stack.

  7. Congratulations on reaching more than 60 followers! I loved Beautiful Creatures and I will be sure to read your review. I haven't read Charlaine Harris's other series but since I like Sookie Stackhouse I'd probably enjoy those too. I will have to add it to my TBR list. I hope you enjoy your vacation and have plenty of time to read as well!

  8. The Moses Stine sounds good - hope it is! Have a super week!

  9. Stopping by from Tag Tuesday! Tag-you're it!! (Following your blog...stop by and see me!)
