Welcome to It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. It’s time again for me to set lofty reading goals for myself! And maybe kind of achieve them! Huzzah!
Last week I actually read all the books I wanted to read (although I wasn’t able to acquire the two new books. Ran out of moolah. Darn it. Who wants to buy me a present?) so this week I can start all fresh and new. How exciting!
My library finally came through for me this week, and I now have the first books of several series I’ve been hearing tons of good things about. I can’t possibly get through them all this week, so I hereby dub June “Bandwagon Month,” wherein I will finally find out what all the hype is about.
On the docket for this week:
Shadows in Flight by Orson Scott Card. This is not part of Bandwagon Month (although I guess the Ender series could be considered a bandwagon series in the sci-fi crowd). This one’s just for me. I’ve read every other Ender/Shadow book and loved them. Time to find out what’s happening to a very tall Bean in space.
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. No, I’ve never read the Mortal Instruments books. Yes, I know this is a travesty. Time to take the plunge.
Graceling by Kristin Cashore. I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about this fantasy series, and I’m so, so excited to finally get to read it. I also checked out Fire, which will probably kick off next week’s list.
And three books is probably about all I can manage this week, considering I’m also behind on my reviews, plus I need to allow time for all the Armchair BEA madness. I think it’s going to be a good week.
PSA: I will probably be behind in my commenting for memes this week because I’m on a Commenting Committee for Armchair BEA, and keeping up with that will be taking up a lot of time. But I WILL reply to your comments after the Armchair BEA madness is over. So please be patient! Thanks!
I love Graceling. I also like City of Bones. You are making good choices!

I’ve read City of Bones but not the others in the series yet. They are on my very tall TBR pile!
My favorite read last week was Emily the Strange: Dark Times by Rob Reger. Please come see what else I’m reading.

Great picks! I can’t wait to start the Mortal Instrument series and Graceling too. I’ve got City of Bones on the way and just today actually, I’ve come across lots of glowing reviews for Graceling so I will be purchasing it sometime soon (:

I just started The Mortal Instruments last week too.
I’ve only read the first book in the Mortal Instruments series but I think you will like it for no other reason than Jace’s snarkiness.

Ohhh, I’m glad to see Graceling on your list and can’t wait to see what you tink of it! We just discussed it at book club on Saturday night so I got to re-read it in preparation, which was awesome because I loved it so very much!

I purchased Graceling a couple weeks ago because I found it on sale, then got Fire from the library. My only problem is going to be that I can’t afford Bitterblue yet, and my library doesn’t have it 🙁
I’m doing Armchair BEA this week too!! 🙂 Pretty cool bloggers, aren’t we?
Happy reading this week 🙂
What are YOU reading??

I have three “City of” books and haven’t read any of them something always seems to jump to my attention ahead of them.
Love the Graceling cover

What a cool coincidence! I just announced the winners of the giveaway today–and the books I’m giving away are Shadows in Flight and Cassandra Clare’s Clockwork prince:)
I loved Graceling! I think you will too. Bitterblue will be worth the wait.

Have fun with Armchair BEA! I read Ender’s Game in junior high, but just recently discovered there were more books in the series. I will have to check them out!
I really want to read Graceling! Hope you enjoy!
