Monday Round Up (07.19.10)

July 18, 2010

“It’s Monday What Are You Reading” is a weekly event hosted by Sheila that lets you share books you’ve read over the past week and books you have coming up.

Finished:
Benny & Shrimp by Katarina Mazetti (review to come)
The Help by Kathryn Stockett (Guest Post courtesy of my mom (: )

Currently Reading: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by JK Rowling

Up next: A random selection from my To Be Read shelf :)

I posted some thoughts on my reread of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire last week, and one thing I forgot to mention is that it’s a great book to read during the World Cup. Makes the excitement surrounding the Quidditch World Cup completely relatable!

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

    I accidentally picked up The Deathly Hollows from the library a couple weeks ago. I dont know why – I was after book three on audio but I got book 7 and was into it before I realized….. now I am almost through it, out of order – but holy smokes the audios are GOOD!!!

    Have an awesome week :)

    The Help is something I want to read after all the hype it got – looking forward to your mom’s GP :)

    I <3 Harry Potter. I really want to reread all the novels, but they are currently at my parents house. I don't have anywhere to put them anyway. I hope you have a great week!

    The Help is on my wish list. One of my daughter guest posting on my blog about a month ago and now the other one is working on a post hopefully for next week. I think it is great that your mom did a guest post for you!!

    Benny and Shrimp was adorable, and of course The Help…loved it. And isn’t it kind of fun to pick a random book off the shelf? That way you can pick what you’re in the mood for.

    Have a great week.

    I’m listening to The Help on cd and absolutely loving it! It’s definitely one of the best books on cd I’ve ever heard. I’m excited to read your post on the book to see what you thought.

    I’m currently engrossed in some urban fantasy and steampunk novels which I find to be a perfect summer reading escape. :) Have a wonderful week!

    I’ve been trying to get to The Help; but other titles keep edging it out. Maybe before the end of August. Then I’ll come back and read your Mom’s guest post.

    Order of the Phoenix is my favorite HP book! Are you rereading or is this the the first time? I have read them all except for Deathly Hallows which I plan to read before the first part of the movie comes out in November. Enjoy Phoenix…I know I did…immensely!
