What are you reading today?!

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! As part of this weekly meme Book Journey loves to encourage you all to go and visit the others participating in this meme. Book Journey offers a weekly contest for those who visit 10 or more of the Monday Meme participants and leave a comment telling BJ how many you visited.


  1. I really want to start on The Giver quartet. Marking it down for 2013 :)
    Have a great week and happy reading!

  2. Both of your current reads are on my list. Is Son a continuation of the Giver's story or does it focus on different characters?

  3. I loved Son and I loved the entire Giver quartet. I can't believe I never heard of this until late last year. I'm looking forward to Mr. Penubra's 24 hour books store. That may be my next library request. Have a great day, Deb!

  4. Son is a continuation of the story. It focuses on the baby that Jonah saves and on the baby's mother.

  5. OOh nice! Those are new to me but I hope you enjoy them!

    Here's my Monday Wrapup

    Have a GREAT day!

  6. I'm not familiar with these books. I hope you enjoy your reading week!

  7. I haven't read any of these books but they look interesting. Like the look of the booky ones.

  8. I'm very curious about Son....I am writing it down!

    Enjoy your week!


  9. This week's stack is small but looks great! Happy reading.

  10. Good Prose sounds very interesting, looking forward to your review!

    Have a great week of reading!

  11. Oh my, as you will see in my "What are you reading?" post, I am desperate to read Son. I have read the Giver and Gathering Blue, but I havent read Messenger, and its been quite a long time since I've read the other two, so in order to get myself to where you are, I've gotta read the previous three.

    How is Son? Is it everything I'm hoping it is.

    I hope you enjoy it.

  12. Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore is very popular this month. I see it all around. Have a great week with these books.

    Thanks for stopping by on my blog!

  13. Curious about Mr. Penumbra ... am deep into The Technologists right now and have Any Bitter Thing waiting for me ...

  14. Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog.
    I know what you mean about the challenges, I just have too much time right now, I don't know how I'll feel about it later

  15. These are all new titles to me. Curious about them all!

  16. Son is just as wonderful as the other books in the series. I don't think it will disappoint you.

  17. ooooh!....I really, really, really want to read Mr Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore! Can't wait to hear what you think of it :)

  18. Do you think I can read and enjoy SON without reading all of the books in the series? I've red The Giver but not the next two.

    How's the new year going?

  19. Once again, I learn of new books from your post. Mr Penumbra's 24 Hour Bookstore has caught my eye, I may have a look into that one.

  20. I'm reading Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore, too.

  21. You can read Son without reading all the books in the series (in my very humble opinion). I'm sure it resonates more if you are familiar with all of the characters and events of the complete series.

  22. "Good Prose: The Art of Nonfiction" sounds of interest, will check it out via your review & online.

  23. I need to read SON.....before 2013 ends!!
