Monday Round Up (10.25.10)

October 24, 2010

Library Loot is hosted by Claire at The Captive Reader and Marg at Reading Adventures.

I returned two books to the library this week and, without meaning to, somehow walked away with two more:

The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness

Marcelo in the Real World by Francisco X. Stork

“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: One, Two, Buckle My Shoe by Agatha Christie (review to come)

Posted: The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness

Currently reading:
We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson (read-a-long with the Classic Reads Book Club)
The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness

Up next: I’ll be reading We Have Always Lived in the Castle for the next couple weeks for the read-a-long, but I plan to fit Marcelo in the Real World in after The Ask and the Answer. I was excited to find Marcelo sitting on the library shelf after hearing so many praises for it when I called for recommendations a few weeks ago.

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

    It is impossible to walk into the library without walking out with more.

    I am currently listening to The Knife of Never Letting Go, which is read by Patrick Ness and enjoying it immensely. I love Manchee and Ness does a fantastic job with all the voices especially Todd’s dog.

    Have a great week!

    I enjoyed The Knife of Never Letting Go. I will check out your review.

    I really have to restrain myself in the library. Often when I only go in to return some books, I make sure my library card is at home so I’m not tempted. Your library loot is great, though!

    Oh, I got a couple of books from the library this week, but haven’t done a post specifically for them…one of them I’m reading this week (The Lost Hours, by Karen White).

    The other one is Outtakes from a Marriage, by Ann Leary.

    Here’s my Monday post:
