It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey meant to highlight books you read in the past week, and what you’re planning on reading this week.
Okay, so there have been more BEA drama developments. I got the email saying that I got my press pass reapproved, so now I can go! But…I still can’t afford to go for three nights. If anyone has room for one extra person to crash with them on Tuesday night, can you let me know? I can pay to split a room for one night, but I think that’s as far as my budget goes. Otherwise, I’ll probably take the Bolt Bus down from Boston, get there around 11:30, then bus back to Boston after the exhibits close. Brief, but better than nothing, and super cheap.
I had another pretty good reading week here. Check back tomorrow because I’ll be doing another giveaway on the blog! Oh, and Goodreads says I’m 4 books ahead in my challenge to read 150 books this year. Woot!
Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin
Lexapros and Cons by Aaron Karo
Fever by Lauren DeStefano
Continuing to read:
11/22/63 by Stephen King
Inheritance by Christopher Paolini (audiobook)
The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa
Hoping to finish:
The Truth of All Things by Kieran Shields
Hollywood Stories by Stephen Schochet
Caring is Creepy by David Zimmerman
What are your reading plans this week?
Well yay about BEA! I hope it all comes together nicely for you. You have some good books going – I loved 11-22-63 on audio.
I hope so too! I figure part of a day there is better than none at all, right? And I didn’t really want to be there on Thursday anyway, when they let the “super readers” from the general public come. I’m not being snobby, I just feel like it’s really crowded already I don’t want to get trampled.
I hope you get to BEA – it looks exciting although I’m not sure if I’m going to go or not since I’m still a newbie book blogger. And your books – a few of them are on my list of books to be read too – like Fever & Inheritance.
If you can go and it isn’t too difficult, I recommend it. It will get you really jazzed for reading, plus it’s great to get to meet and chat with all the authors. Most of them are really nice and happy people like their books. I also found out about books I would not have known about by going last year.
I wish I could go to BEA. Maybe next year….
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? Please stop by and say hello!
Yeah, it’s going to be a stretch for me, but this is probably my last summer living in Boston, so I want to take advantage of the close proximity. I hope you can go in the future!
Good luck on all of your reading! You got some good ones on deck! Happy Reading!
Thanks! I love having great books to look forward to
I’ve never been to BEA – might have to look into that one year!
Hope you enjoy all your books and have a great week!

I think anybody who works with books (booksellers, librarians, bloggers) should definitely experience BEA at least once. It’s intense!
