The Sunday Salon for April 5

I've been on a bit of a reading binge the last week, so it seems appropriate that I do Sunday Salon this week. I'm a bit burnt out on reading blogs (sorry, bloggers!) and am reading more books instead. (There are a few little minor annoyances for me in the blog world right now and it's easier for me to just skim and avoid.)

So what have I read? I finished:

A Mango-Shaped Space by Wendy Mass (review)
Kitty and the Silver Bullet by Carrie Vaughn (review scheduled for TBR Day- 4/15)
Bloom by Elizabeth Scott (review scheduled for tomorrow)
First Kiss (Then Tell) edited by Cylin Busby (review sometime week after next)
An Abundance of Katherines by John Green (ditto)

(The week after next because this week is already full of blog posts and I don't generally like to post more than once a day.)

I'm not sure what I'm going to read now. I have a couple of half-read books but the only one I'm really interested in is For a Few Demons More by Kim Harrison. I'm kind of in a young adult mood, so I might move on to Just Listen by Sarah Dessen or Paper Towns by John Green. I've got a handful of interesting non-fiction here as well. It feels wierd to only be seriously working on two books, so I'm sure I'll start one or two in the next few days. We have a crazy busy week ahead of us, who knows if I'll actually read anything!

(Excuse me for not putting in links, my internets are not working well.)

(oops, meant to post this for tomorrow morning!)



  1. I can't wait to hear what you thought of An Abundance of Katherines. And Bloom.

  2. That is too funny about being annoyed by blogs. :) Enjoy your books!

  3. I am glad you are able to spend more time reading books, Lisa. :-) I can't wait to see what you thought of Kitty and the Silver Bullet.

    John Green sure is a popular author around the blogosphere. I keep seeing his name pop up in reference to his books.

    I hope you have a great week, Lisa! I look forward to seeing what you have in store for us this week.

  4. I don't know what you're referring to specifically, but I understand what you're feeling. Sometimes I need to just take a break from reading blogs.

    But Yay for lots of reading! I should be reading right now instead of blogging. Geez! :) Have you thawed out any yet?? Hope the rest of your weekend is great.

  5. I think blogging breaks are definitely a good thing! My blog/book reading proportion definitely goes up and down: since I've been on vacation, right now I'm all about the book blogs. But I'm sure I'll swing back soon. :)

  6. I get tired of reading blogs when they are all talking about the same book. It happens once in awhile. Don't get me wrong, I like to hear all the different view points, but after 6 posts about the same books, I am sort of burnt out too.

  7. Eva, I saw that you had a vacation post, I just haven't quite made it around to read it! I think the up and down is just normal for everyone. I'm rather enjoying my reading being up.
