It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between!  This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!

I love being a part of this and I hope you do too!

  1. The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairly Land...


    I listened to it on audio and fell in love. In fact, it's a book that I plan on purchasing soon because I can't believe I didn't get the full affect of the images. Enjoy!!

  2. How was The Statistical Probability?
    Long way home seems like a really interesting book! Can't wait to read your review.

  3. I'm busting to read Insurgent, I finished Divergent last week & loved it! I've heard good things about Bloom, did you enjoy it?
    Have a great week & happy reading :)

  4. The Jules Verne book I think I read this in school. Cannot remember anything about it though so will look forward to your views.

  5. You have some intriguing titles...I do like the look of Bloom...hope you enjoy your books, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  6. OOOh nice! I still need to read Divergent, but there are 100s of other books I really wanna read as well that I've had before I finally got a copy! It sucks to have too much to read and nowhere near enough time to read em all!

    Here's my Monday Wrapup

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  7. I have never read a Jules Verne novel. I need to correct that fact quickly.

  8. YAY for Insurgent - I am hoping to read that one this week too.... :)

  9. I've had Insurgent on my night stand for a number of days now telling myself that I have to finish the book I am reading first. So, I am putting the book into my school library collection for the students and I'll read it this summer

  10. I love The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight! It was my favourite book last month. I hope you enjoy Insurgent.

    Thanks for visiting my It's Monday.

  11. I think I would really love The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland.. Just for the cover alone! It just sounds so whimsical and lovely, I hope it lives up to my impression!

    I love books like Learned Optimism. I haven't read this one, but I think we all need to read books like this regularly just to keep thinking positively. xx

  12. I've got to go and pick up Insurgent. I read book #2 of another series and was underwhelmed. I hope it is not true of this book.

  13. Wow fantastic reading!!! With a new grandbaby Bloom looks good.

    Have a great week!!

  14. Lots of good books this week...hope you enjoy them all.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier and hope you have a great week!

  15. I've seen a lot of people reading Insurgent! I need to start that series soon :)

    I adore the cover for Long Way Home, it's so interesting and a bit bleak at the same time. Hope you enjoy the book!

  16. Insurgent is so hugely popular right now - I'm excited to read it too - especially now that I'm seeing so many positive reviews.

  17. I want to read The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight and Insurgent.
    My It’s Monday!

  18. Long Way Home looks like an interesting travel memoir.

    Thanks for stopping by Book'd Out earlier, have a great reading week!

  19. I just read The Girl Who...

    I hope you enjoy it!

  20. So I have to admit, dystopian fiction is a genre I'm really not interested in reading. BUT! Last week I was book browsing at B&N and the cover of Divergent caught my eye. Curious, I read the synopsis and found myself reading the first two chapters. It was good I have to say, so it's on my TBR list. I didn't read the synopsis for Insurgent in case there were spoilers for Divergent. But this is huge for me! (I'm trying to read more books outside of comfort zone.)

    Bloom looks really good! I hope you have a good reading week.

  21. Learned Optimism! What do you think of it so far?

  22. Oh - all of your books look interesting but I am a little envious that you have Insurgent. I won't get that until June reading.
    I hope you are having a good week.
