It’s Monday, What are you Reading? (6)

It’s Monday, What are you Reading? (6)

This is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. This meme is where people talk about the books they have read last week, the books they are currently reading this week, and what they hope to read next up. I decided it would be fun to participate in this meme because I thought it would be a fun way to keep my TBR pile in order.  Books I finished last week (this was a pretty slow week for me. I am currently reading too many books I think so I didn’t finish as many as I usually do.) Cameo and the Highwayman by Dawn McCullough-White Glass Houses (book 1 in the morganville vampires) by Rachel Caine Books I am reading this week: The Dead Girl’s Dance (book 2 in the morganville vampires) by Rachel Caine Incarceron by Catherine Fisher Piper’s Fury By Rachel Firasek  Spellbound by Cara Lynn Shultz Books I will be reading next: The girl with the dragon tattoo by Stieg Larsson WANTED:HERO Prelude to a… Read more »

In My Mailbox (7)

In My Mailbox (7)

In My Mailbox (6) In My Mailbox was inspired by Alea at Pop Culture Junkie and created by Kristi at The Story Siren.     Last week I told you that I was on a book buying ban, and that you would not be seeing anymore “bought” books for a while. Well….  This week I have some “bought” books. But they were on a big sale and they were from a gift card so I didn’t spend any of my savings money, so it was not too big of a break. But it was still kind of cheating. Bad Michelle! They are all e-books and they were all 2.99 or less. (most were .99!) For Review: (both from NetGalley) Misfit by Jon Skovron Deviant by Adrian McKinty    Bought: (all ebooks for kindle)   The Fallen Star by Jessica Sorensen The Witches of Santa Anna (books #1-7) by Lauren Barnholdt   Denial (The Witches of Santa Anna #8) by Lauren Barnholdt Suspicion (The Witches of Santa Anna #9) by Lauren Barnholdt … Read more »

Discussion- To read multiples or not to read multiples?

I don’t know about you guys, but I can never just seem to read one book at a time. I normally have multiple books going at the same time. At any given time, I normally have bookmarks in about three different books. I’m not really sure why, but I like to have different books for different moods and occasions. I have one on my kindle that I am reading. Right now my kindle book is Cameo and the Highwayman by Dawn McCullough White.  Then, I have my work book. This is the book that I bring with me to school or to work to read if I have downtime.I like this book to be pretty long, just in case I have lots of time to kill so I won’t finish it and be left with nothing to read. Right now my work book is Incarceron by Catherine Fisher. Then I have my home book. Sometimes this is two books. This is the book or books that I read when I… Read more »
