It's Monday! What Are You Reading? & Mailbox Monday

Hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.  We share books that we've read over the past week and those we hope to read this week.  

Last Week:
I've been in a sort of reading slump lately, mayhaps due to holiday madness...I'm not sure.  But, I've made it partway through The Stupidest Angel by Christopher Moore and partway through The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N. K. Jemisin.  I'm loving both of them so far!!

This Week:
I'd like to finish up both of the aforementioned books and finally get to the long-awaited (for me) final chunkster novel in the Chaos Walking Trilogy by Patrick Ness.


Mailbox Monday is a touring meme where book bloggers share their bookish acquisitions from the week prior.  It is hosted this month by Let Them Read Books.

This week I was super excited because I received an advanced copy of Cinder by Marissa Meyer (courtesy of Feiwel & Friends)!

I also purchased The Gate of Ivory by Doris Egan

And I purchased the Kindle edition of Cloud Roads by Martha Wells for a whopping $0.00!!!  I have no idea why (or for how long) this highly regarded book is free - but I jumped at the chance to own it!


  1. Enjoy the books... and OOOH! Cinder! Have a wonderful Christmas week!

  2. Am in a slump as well. Hopefully next week will be better.

  3. Busy week :)

    Merry Christmas!

  4. It's so busy this week for everyone I think!

    Have a great reading week and Merry Christmas!

    Happy holidays!

  8. I've heard Cinder is great. I hope you love it!

  9. Cinder is one of my favorites that I've read this year.

    I grabbed The Cloud Roads too...I think it was free because book two just came out, maybe?? I was excited to get it!

  10. Will have to check out The Cloud Roads.

  11. Cinder sounds good, enjoy!

  12. I love Christopher Moore's books!

  13. I liked The Stupidest Angel. It's been a couple years since I last read it.

    I'm on vacation and the time off has given me time to finish my GoodReads challenge. Please come see what I'm reading.

  14. The Gate of Ivory looks interesting to me. Of course, Cinder is the big topic of conversation everywhere at the moment. That one is all over Twitter right now! Hope you enjoy them.
