What Are You Reading?

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!

I am listening to Ready Player One on audio, and also listening to The Last Werewolf, and I am reading a book called The Healing, which is excellent. Hoping to get a few read this week! It sounds like you are having a great time over there with the YA!

I loved Silver Girl.

I spent last week rebooting my blog on Wordpress. I hope you will stop by and let me know what you think.

Great picks, I have Warm Bodies on my TBR too.

You gave me a few newbies to add to my TBR.

I think Ready Player One and Hotel Of Bitter And Sweet will fix the funk. :)

I finally bought Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, now I just need to get to it. I think I will really like it! Enjoy your week, and good luck with your reading funk!
