What Are You Reading?

Good morning! 

Today is Monday, November 14, 2011...What Are You Reading?

This weekly meme is brought to you by the welcoming, the gracious, the warm and friendly Sheila from Book Journey.  Sheila is like the neighbor you can always call on for a cup of sugar, or to feed your fish while you're on vacation.  She's the one you love to bump into at the book store or supermarket, because she will always have something interesting to talk about and a great book to recommend.  In return, one can't help but come when she calls. 

This past week, Sheila invited me to do a Guest Post over at Book Journey!  Her readers were very welcoming and friendly, and it was a wonderful experience.  Don't be jealous, y'all, I'm back and I'm all yours!

It's great to be one of your neighbors in this part of the blogosphere, Sheila!  Thank you for having me!

Uh oh, I meant to change this post. I began STARTED EARLY, TOOK MY DOG by Kate Atkinson, only to realize it's part of a series. I have the other books, I just have to figure out which one is first. *smacks forehead*

I loved Warm Bodies and found it to be so unique and wonderful. I had heard it was supposed to be a Romeo and Juliet story, but with zombies. It looks like you read some amazing stuff this time around. I finished two books, and that made me happy. This morning I am starting the Rachel Dupree book, and I am looking forward to it. Great post today!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I look forward to hearing what you think of Hotel on the Corner as well. And I really need to read Ready Player One. I keep hearing such great things about it!

I read Started Early, Took My Dog and didn't love it as much as everyone else did. I probably wasn't smart enough for it. I hope you love it.

I liked Warm Bodies too - what did you think? Enjoy the rest of your week :-)

Sheila (Bookjourney) said...

Markus Zusak? Author of Book Thief right? OOOH Interesting!

And yes, book bloggy neighbor - it was a delight to have you come and help blog sit :)

I think it has to be tradition now that we always get our picture together at BEA! :)

I really liked Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. Different but good!

I am currently reading 'The Book Thief' and loving it so will definitely add Underdogs to my TBR list. Hugo Cabret has been on my list as well and 'The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet' title is interesting enough for me to try it out.
