It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? (2)

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a meme run by Sheila at Book Journey, where we share the books we read and/or reviewed last week and what’s on deck for this week. Now Jen and Kellee at Teach Mentor Texts have started an offshoot for kidlit fans: It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? From Picture Books to YA. I just had to check it out!

Last week:

  • I finished Jodi Meadows’ Incarnate. I hate to admit it, but it didn’t live up to the hype for me.
  • I started, and abandoned, Joe Abercrombie’s The Heroes. Don’t get me wrong – it’s a good book. I just don’t have time to read such a long book right now.
  • I started Kate Klimo’s Daughter of the Centaurs. I’m not loving it.

Plans for this week:

  • Read Hounded by Kevin Hearne.

    Atticus Oâ??Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years oldâ??when in actuality, heâ??s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer.

  • Start Airborn by Kenneth Oppel.

    In a swashbuckling adventure reminiscent of Jules Verne and Robert Louis Stevenson, Kenneth Oppel, author of the best-selling Silverwing trilogy, creates an imagined world in which the air is populated by transcontinental voyagers, pirates, and beings never before dreamed of by the humans who sail the skies.

Yes, these are the same as last week. I didn’t have as much time to read as I thought! I did start Hounded today, and so far it’s amazing.

Last week:

  • I finally finished the second book in the Sebastian St. Cyr mystery series, When Gods Die. I was only able to read in brief spurts, late at night, and the heavy details in this historical novel made it tough to keep my eyes open.
  • I finished my first NetGalley book of the year, Every Other Day by Jennifer Lynn Barnes.
  • I started Incarnate by Jodi Meadows.
  • I absolutely devoured Ann Aguirre’s Enclave. I read it in two sittings this weekend.

Plans for this week:

  • Read Hounded by Kevin Hearne.

  • Finish Incarnate.

    Ana is new. For thousands of years in Range, a million souls have been reincarnated over and over, keeping their memories and experiences from previous lifetimes. When Ana was born, another soul vanished, and no one knows why. Ana needs to uncover the mistake that gave her someone elseâ??s life, but will her quest threaten the peace of Heart and destroy the promise of reincarnation for all?

I’ll get some good alone time this weekend to read, so I’m hoping to make up some ground on my reading. It’s been a slow start in 2012, and some of these are library books due back at the end of the month. Read, Logan, read!
