Today is Monday, October 17, 2011...What Are You Reading?
This weekly meme is hosted by the warm, vivacious, colorful, sweet-smelling, non-decomposing Sheila from Book Journey! (I'm reading about Zombie Apocalypse right now, and if you've got a heart beat, you're OK in my book!)I'm still in a bit of a reading funk. When this happens, I usually resort to my "girls" - Stephanie Plum and Sookie Stackhouse - but I am all caught up. I read Dead Reckoning last month, and I'm waiting for the unfortunately-titled Explosive Eighteen by Janet Evanovich next month. (It may be an hilariously appropriate title, we'll see!). Since I can't read my book candy, I am flying through a lot of the middle grade and young adult fiction on my shelf...and having an AMAZING time!
If anyone is ever in a reading funk, I highly recommend taking a turn in the Young Readers' section of your bookshop or library!
