It's Monday ...

Sheila hosts the meme here:

I'm eleven books behind on my goodreads challenge, apparently. Hrm.

Anyway. I had a reasonably productive week last week, I think. I read Fox Forever, which is the last book in the Jenna Fox Chronicles and it was a satisfying end to the series. I highly, highly recommend The Adoration of Jenna Fox, and while I didn't like the two sequels quite as much, I did enjoy them.

I also read Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone for Sheila's Harry Potter readalong. I just finished watching the movies, and intended to re-read the books after, so the readalong was very timely.

I also read The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison and by "read" I mean "inhaled it in two days and then made whale noises into a cushion." It's so so SO GOOD.

Right now, I'm reading The Enchanted, by Rene Denfeld, which is good so far, and also short, which is what I need at the moment.

Up next, of course, is The Chamber of Secrets.

What are you reading?

YAY for HP! I cant wait to watch the movies again. I am currently living out of a hotel room in Florida but once I am home... I am on it ;)

Oh I LOVE Harry :-) I watch the films a lot with my son . .but I would love to have time to read the books again!
I got so excited when we went to the HP studios in London.

Enjoy the Harry Potter read-a-long! You can't go wrong, no matter how many times you've read them . . .

Hope the readalong brings in lots of new HP readers!

Here's my It's Monday!

I'm slightly embarrassed to admit that I haven't read any Harry Potter. I tried to read the first and just struggled with it.

I'm not much of a fan of the fantasy genre though (good ole' crime fiction / thrillers for me!) ;-)

I'd like to find the time to re read HP, I inhaled them so quickly the first time around.

Happy reading!

Goblin Emperor! So good <3

ISN'T Goblin Emperor good? I absolutely hated the book by that author that I read when I first started blogging, and I was braced for the worst with The Goblin Emperor. But it was excellent, instead!

Sheila: re-watching the movies was a treat, and now re-reading the books is a real treat!

Kirsty: Oh, that sounds like it would be amazing fun!! Hi, welcome! :D

Leila: Exactly, you really can't!

Deb: Wouldn't that be great!!

Deborah: As a non-fantasy reading friend of mine says, it's just not your genre :-)

Shelley: The hold up great to re-reading :D

Ana: It was so so so so so so so great!!!!!!! I LOVED it.

Jenny: IT's the only book of hers that I've read but i+it was so great.

I hope all the books are good. I don't know any of them but Harry Potter. I haven't read any Harry Potter books, though.

ENJOY your reading week.

Love your header. Beautiful blog.
