Monday Reading (Sept. 19th, 2011)

Watch out thar, matey!
In this weekly event hosted by One Persons Journey Through a World Of Books where we discuss what we've been reading this week (and, occasionally, what we haven't).

Arg! Today be the International Talk Like a Pirate Day! So make aye you speak like t'worst pirate around!

Currently reading:
  • State of Wonder by Ann Patchett -Yep, I'm still reading this. While I have serious problems with any mention of animal testing, it is still an Ann Patchett book. So yes, I am loving it. But not as much as her other novels!
  • The Two Towers by J. R. R. Tolkien - Does anyone remember how I participated in the LotR Readalong last year? Well, I made it through The Hobbit and The Fellowship of the Ring, but I never finished any of the other books. But I'm working on it now!

Finished this week:
  • Beastly by Alex Finn - The only thing that saves this book is the fact that it is a re-telling of one of my favourite tales. Other than that, I can't say I'd run out to get it...
  • 13 to Life by Shannon Delany - This book is an extremely disjointed, but unexpectedly entertaining, werewolf version of Twilight. Reviewing it will be tough!

Up next from the TBR pile:
  • I really just need to finish the books that I am reading! That is my GOAL.


  1. I don't believe I've ever read an Ann Patchett book, I'll have to look her up on goodreads. I just started gathering the LOTR series books at this used bookstore I go to. I've only gotten the Hobbit and Return of King so far though. Haven't come across the other two yet but I do want to start this series since I loved the movies.

  2. ARRRGGHHHH... me thinks I would like 13 To Life! (oh I hope I didnt sounds like Yoda...LOL)

  3. I've heard great things about State of Wonder. As for 13 to Life, the disjointedness you mentioned killed the book for me. I just was glad when it was over.

    I hope you make progress on your current books!

  4. I love the LOTR series - it's so good. The movies were really close to the books too ;)

    I keep meaning to add Beastly to my to-read list and 13 to Life sounds very good!
