Monday Round Up (01.25.10)

January 24, 2010

on_mondays“What are you reading on Mondays” is a weekly event hosted by J. Kaye that lets you share books you’ve read over the past week and books you have coming up.

I spent most of last week either conked out on the couch or wishing I was conked on the couch, thanks to a cold I picked up right at the end of the previous week. So, while there was much tea-drinking and Friends-watching, there wasn’t much book-reading.

Finished: Nothing
Still plugging away: Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I’m hoping to finish this one this week.
Started: Paper Towns by John Green. Loving every moment of this one.
Up next: Austenland by Shannon Hale

sb10067729n-003Mailbox Monday is a weekly event hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.

I got one lovely book in the mail this week: Fallen by Lauren Kate, which I won from Carolyn at Book Chick City.

So pretty – and even prettier in real life. Very much looking forward to reading this one!





What are you reading? Did any new books find their way into your possession?

    Congrats on winning a copy of Fallen! I really need to pick up a copy, as I’ve heard nothing but great things about that book.

    Hope you’re feeling better now! Colds are the worst.

    Austenland will be refreshingly brief compared to Outlander : ) Have a great week!

    I’m like you. I never get much reading done when I’m sick. Hope you’re feeling better. I really enjoyed both Paper Towns and Austenland.

    Diana Gabaldon is one of my favourite authors, cant wait to get her latest.

    Hope you feel better this week–I have been sick all of January and woke up this morning with the beginnings of a cold! Darn. I love the cover of Fallen–so pretty.
    *smiles and happy reading*

    I recently bought Looking for Alaska by John Green. I’ve heard he’s great, but I haven’t read anything by him yet. Ooh, Fallen. Lucky you! That is such a great cover! Enjoy!
