It's Monday, What are You Reading? (2011-2)

"It's Monday. What are you reading?" is a meme hosted by One Persons Journey Through a World of Books. This is where you list what you've read in the past week.

It's been a LONG time since I've participated in this meme, but I really wanted to join in this week. Partly since it's been a really good year for reading so far and partly because I miss my reading meme friends.

Without further ado, here's my list for this past week:

Kringle ~ Tony Abbott 1/30
The Lightning Thief ~ Rick Riordan 1/30
The Sea of Monsters ~ Rick Riordan 1/31
Beast Master Vol. 1-2 ~ Kyousuke Motomi 1/31
Backstage Prince Vol. 1-2 ~ Kanoko Sakurakoji 1/31
Boyfriends, Burritos and an Ocean of Trouble ~ Nancy Rue 2/1
The Titan's Curse ~ Rick Riordan 2/2
Moe Kare Vol. 1-7 ~ Go Ikeyamada 2/2
The Battle of the Labyrinth ~ Rick Riordan 2/3
The Last Olympian ~ Rick Riordan 2/4
The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle ~ Avi 2/5
Lyddie ~ Katherine Paterson 2/6
Jip: His Story ~ Katherine Paterson 2/6

So, my goal this year was to read as many books as possible that I own that I either haven't read in YEARS or just haven't read at all yet. My total books towards that goal since January 1st: 33. I think I'm doing pretty well so far.

As for my To Be Read this week list:

I am currently finishing up I Am Number Four ~ Pittacus Lore and Under the Lilacs ~ Louisa May Alcott.

I intend to begin and complete The Lost Hero ~ Rick Riordan and possibly start on the other two books by Avi that I haven't read yet. If not Avi this week, then I'll read Northanger Abbey and Mansfield Park. (Not really looking forward to reading those two no matter how much I love Jane Austen.

What did YOU read this week?

Wow you had an amazing reading week! I have to get back into the Rick Riordin series!

I liked both of those Jane Austen's, but I had to be very patient through the beginning of Mansfield Park!

Here's my Monday!

holy cow!! that's a lot of reading!

I read Lyddie a couple years ago for a Children's lit. class and really enjoyed it. What did you think?

I also loved the Percy Jackson series and just finished Lost Hero a couple weeks ago. It was longer than the PJ books but still good with lots of action/adventure. I hope you enjoy!

My Monday :)

You know how I have a rough time reading classics, but right before I quit working (with a 20 minute commute)I discovered audio books. Dohy! Wish I had thought of that much earlier, but I "read" Northanger Abbey that way and really enjoyed it - I hated to get out of the car! You could kick up your book total (you know you need to read more books each month) my borrowing them from the library. Some library systems have them where you can download them onto you ipod. Did you know that? Anyway...just a thought.

Great reading week. I hope next week will be as great as the laste one. :) Boyfriends, Burritos and an Ocean of Trouble sounds like a hilarious book.
