It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

Oh Monday. You’re back. UGH.

I *finally* finished The Night Circus (cue the Hallelujah singing cherubs) and posted my review yesterday.

This week I decided to try another Kristin Cashore book!

Graceling was good (see review here) but I was a little underwhelmed and mentioned that I wanted more Bitterblue and Leck… well, my friends, ask and you shall receive! Kinda.

At the suggestion of one of my GoodReads friends, I picked up Bitterblue at the library and am already digging it. SO much better than Graceling! And, I get my Bitterblue along with some Leck, Po, and Katsa tied in. NICE. So far, so good. I hope it keeps up the momentum, mystery, and overall goodness.

In other book related news, I got tickets to see NEIL GAIMAN! Woohoo!! Hubby and I (along with some of my internet book club friends) will be off to be enchanted by NG himself in June. Just stare at his wonderfulness until my post tomorrow, go ahead:

Playing Catch-Up

Whew, it’s been quite a week! I just started classwork for a Reading Endorsement through my school district so I can finally do what I was born to do– be a reading teacher. As a result, I’ve read hundreds of pages this week… of textbooks… booo!

Today, I shall play catch-up on the blog and do the memes I missed in additon to giving an update of what I’m reading. You can expect a review or two on Sunday!

So, let’s go.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

This Monday I was in the middle of “The Night Circus” by Erin Morganstern. Shockingly enough, I really wasn’t thrilled with this book. But, more to come in my review on Sunday… {ooh, anticipation!}

Top Ten Tuesday!

This week’s list is the Top Ten Characters I Would Crush On If I Were Also a Fictional Character. Um, I don’t need to be a fictional character to crush on these “people” but let’s run with it.

1. Ronald Weasley: Ron’s always been my go-to guy… funny, goofy, not super aware of how good looking he is, and definitely kind-hearted.

2. Peeta Mellark: He’s a baker and good at decorating cakes. I mean, DUH.

3. Finnick Odair: Can I use “DUH” again as a reason? No? Okay, fine. Finnick is a typical sexy “bad boy” with a heartwrenching back story. LOVE IT. LET ME FIX YOU.

4.  Gilbert Blythe: Anne of Green Gables is one lucky girl. Gilbert is the childhood sweetheart type that I’ve had a crush on since my mom read me the first book when I was in elementary school.

5. Cas Lowood (Anna Dressed in Blood): Cas is a ghost hunter. Pretty cool. He’s funny, sarcastic, snarky, and pretty much my husband IRL.

6. Matthew de Clairmont (A Discovery of Witches): Matthew and I go back and forth. He is that high school boyfriend that you have issues with (“let me do my own thing, Matt!”) but that you can’t help but love. Plus, he’s a vampire. Whoops- spoilers!

… I can’t believe it but that’s all I’ve got, folks. I’m pretty pick about my men and these are the top 6 that made the {current} cut.

Still with me, dear reader? Okay, good. I’d do a Booking Through Thursday post but didn’t like the topic for the week so Imma skip it.

What I Finished This Week: The Night Circus by Erin Morganstern

What I’m Currently Reading: Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore

I think I’ll end it here for now. Like I said, look for a review on Sunday.

And, I’d be a terrible person if I didn’t share: the top 1,000 NOOK books are 50% right now. It’s Friday, you just got paid, right? I’m an economics teacher and I’m here to impart some wisdom — always pay yourself first. That means, pay yourself in books. GO GO GO!
