Sunday Post #11/ It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It's a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead
It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. It's a chance to share reading lists and compare notes. Be warned though- this meme tends to add to your reading lists.
The days of fall are here, the nights have been cooler and the leaves will be falling soon. I love this time of year. I'm looking forward to some autumn-y reads and am thinking about joining a read-a-thon or two for the season. Last week I reviewed And Only To Deceive by Tasha Alexander. This was my first book of hers and I liked it. This week I'm reading Fangirl and almost done. My review should be up in a couple of days.
Coming down the pike
OK I don't normally read Star Wars books. But Martha Wells is writing this, and it sounds good. And the cover? Go frickin Leia! So yeah I'm on this. There's a little snippet here, the first 50 pages are here (woot!), and an interview with Martha here. I really liked her thoughts on Han and Leia's relationship.
Around the blogosphere:
From Tor.com (lots going on there this week BTW)
Rainbow Rowell of Fangirl fame (and Eleanor & Park) on Life Before Fandom, and how life as a geek was different before the Internet. Ah, X- Men reference... it's worth a read.
Should Marvel just make a Loki movie already?
Here's an excerpt for Kerstin Gier's Emerald Green.
And the Morning Roundup here has more linky goodness than you can shake a stick at. Avengers and X-Men turn 50, GIF art, hobbit holes... Check it out!
Julianne Moore in Hunger Games!
Here's a nice article Book Browsing- A Lost Art? Also worth a read. I first saw this at Lark's wonderful blog The Bookwyrm's Hoard and wanted to link to it here as well. She always has good stuff over there...
What was your week like?
