It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

The meme is hosted by Sheila at One Person’s Journey Through a World of Books.

Another good week for reading, although I slacked off a bit over the weekend.  I have a small stack of books I need to read for class/book club and they’re slowing me down a bit, not exactly what I’m in the mood to read.

2011 Reading Challenge

I’m still 26 books behind on my 2011 Reading Challenge on Goodreads.  My goal is to read 175 books this year, and I’ve been trying to read one a day in April to get me caught up (the year got off to a slow start).  I’d love to participate in The Catching Up Readathon, sponsored by Kristen at Bookworming in the 21st Century, but I don’t have a four-day weekend (just a regular old two day one) and I’ll be out of town for those two days.  Instead, I’ll try to keep up with my one-a-day pace.

What I Read:

Spies of the Mississippi by Rick Bowers

The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han – Disappointing.  I’ve read so many excited reviews of this series and I just found Belly really, really annoying.

Fixing Delilah by Sarah Ockler

Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway – I LOVED this one; it wasn’t talked about enough

Jane by April Lindner – I need to do an entry on this one.  It was a great reworking of Jane Eyre. Who wouldn’t love Mr Rochester as a rock star?

Moccasin Thunder ed by Lori Marie Carlson – I can’t take credit for reading the whole thing; I just couldn’t finish it.  I assigned it to my class at the request of a guest speaker, but I found it really depressing.

What I’m Reading:

Marcelo in the Real World by Francisco X. Stork – I’m only about two chapters into this one and not loving it so far. I’m reading it for our book club, though, so I’m going to try to finish it.

Plan to Read:

Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A. S. King

Struts and Frets by Jon Skovron

A Red Herring Without Mustard by Alan Bradley

The Dark Game: True Spy Stories by Paul B. Janeczko

Every Bone Tells a Story by Jill Rubalcaba and Peter Robertshaw
