It’s Monday! What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.
I love being a part of this and I hope you do too! As part of this weekly meme I love to encourage you all to go and visit the others participating in this meme. I offer a weekly contest for those who visit 10 or more of the Monday Meme participants and leave a comment. You receive one entry for every 10 comments, just come back here and tell me how many in the comment area.
Last weeks winner (using Random.Org) was:

I feel awesome! I had a great reading week and really think I lived out Banned Books Week to the fullest. I had a chance to read and review books that were ones I have wanted to read for a long time – but also new titles to me that I enjoyed as well. Let’s recap shall we?
Are You There God? It’s Me Margaret. by Judy Blume (For Banned Book Week and well… its Judy Blume… so it might have been for me too :D)
When Reality Hits You Right In The Face (Seriously – did you see this? You have to see this!)
Harry Potter and The Order Of The Phoenix by J K Rowling (Oh yeah a BANNED BOOK review)
SPEAK by Laurie Halse Anderson (the BANNED BOOK that has recently caused quite a stir!)
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel pie Society – book review (remember the pinky swear?)
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury – Banned Book Review
Reminder that the Wordshakers On line Book Club will be discussing The Wife’s Tale by Lori Lansen this week – not to late to join in!
Last week to jump on the group meet up of Minnesota and surrounding area Book Bloggers, check this post for details 😀
I did have a good week! *pause while I review the list again with an odd pride and a little rebellion*
This week I think will be exciting as well as this week will end with the Read-A-Thon on October 9th and if you have not signed up I have to tell you that you are going to miss out on some FUN! Scoot on over there and get your name on the list. I will wait here. 😛
Ok, awesome – you are back! Anyway, as I was saying, I think the weekend will provide some good reading time and I hope to add to what I am posting here – but the plan this week is:
Hoo Hoo! I have been wanting to read a cozy mystery for a while now and this one has double – or triple excitement for me! One is that of course the book looks fantastic! Two is that the author is a Minnesota author and seriously lest give it up for the home team! Three is that Laura Childs is so super awesome that she will be author chatting with me about this book and what’s new and whats what…. and well…. I am a little exited!
This is another one that as I read the back of this book I get a little chill as to what could be inside – I have high hopes for this one! Oh and guess what? I have two. TWO! What to do… what to do….. OH! I think we will have a giveaway! Watch for that this week. 😀
This one looks like it will just be a fun lite read. I am hopeful that it is funny and that when I am done with it I can pass it on to College Son .
So that’s my plan as well as the reviews I need to post from last weeks non Banned Books read. I have to confess… once I got into the banned books theme it was and is hard to back my way out. I need more time! I still have several on my kitchen table that I am hoping to read before they have to go back to the library. I love being able to read these tiles and then being able to discuss them. 😀
I am so looking forward to stopping by and seeing what you are reading! This is actually one of my favorite things to do each week. Add your What Are You Reading post to the linky where it says CLICK HERE and we all can visit the posts!
