It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a fun weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey where we share what we've read and reviewed over the past week and what we plan to read next.
It is hard to believe that February is almost here! I've been lucky so far with winter weather. We did close the library an hour early on Friday due to snow but the roads were clear by the time I left. If we can just make it through the next month, spring will be here in the blink of an eye :)
I have been feverishly reading this past weekend to make up for my lack of reading during the week. I was too distracted by Pinterest! I love planning library programs and right now am in the middle of a planning what should hopefully be a really fun Star Wars program for all ages. I also have been working on the Blind Date With a Book adult winter reading program which just started last week and involved me wrapping up lots of books and writing "personal ads" for them. Now that I am getting caught up, hopefully this week I will do better about reading!
Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger
This was a fun and creative YA steampunk book though I definitely prefer the Parasol Protectorate series.
Double Crossed by Ally Carter
This e-novella features Macy McHenry from the Gallagher Girls series and Hale from the Heist Society series and it was such a fantastic story. I hope that we will see more character crossover between the series in future!
Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson
A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving
I have about 150 pages to go and I hope to finish this book by tomorrow. I think I definitely appreciate this novel more as an adult than I did back in college.
What I plan to read next:
Also Known As by Robin Benway
I actually already started reading this book but had to put it aside to read my book discussion book. It is supposed to be similar to the Gallagher Girls books (it is also about a teenage spy but she isn't a very good one).
Star Wars: Scoundrels by Timothy Zahn
I have the e-book checked out from the library but I am hoping to get the audio book. I loved the narrator's reading of Heir to the Empire (he sounds like the movie characters-except for Leia). I am currently helping plan the library's Jedi Academy program with the Children's Librarian and this is the perfect book to put me in a Star Wars state of mind.
The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen
I am excited about reading this one as I've enjoyed all of her other books and this is the only one left to read. I love that the main character loves to read romance novels too.
