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.
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 rea
I enjoyed Slated and hope you do too. Fall is my favorite time of year as well. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
Thanks Kimba. Hope you have a great week.Delete
Our yard is covered in leaves already. :) I love it! Enjoy the new reads. I will be starting Fangirl soon.ReplyDelete
Jenea @ Books Live Forever's Sunday Post
Yeah I love fall! I miss the smell of burning leaves... I hope you like Fangirl, it's pretty good.Delete
I am sooo not looking forward to the cooler weather. I like it hot! :D I've been meaning to read Slated for awhile now but never get around to it. Hope you enjoy it.ReplyDelete
Thanks Christy, I'm looking forward to Slated. I know when it gets cold I'm going to wish for summer again. :)Delete
Thank you for the wonderful shout-out, Greg! And I see you have Magic Marks the Spot, too! I've dipped into it; it's delightful. Thanks for the Morning Roundup link - some of their links were terrific.ReplyDelete
You are welcome! Thanks for stopping by- yes the Pirate one looks great!Delete
I really enjoyed both Fangirl and Razor's Edge. I have also been wanting to read And Only to Deceive. I have heard the series compared to Deanna Raybourn's Lady Julia Grey mysteries which I love.ReplyDelete
I can't wait to see Catching Fire this November. I've only read Mockingjay once but I think Julianne Moore will be a good Coin.
I'm liking Fangirl a lot, and I think your blog was where I saw Razor's Edge- didn't know about it before that, so thank you! I really liked And Only To Deceive and will definetly be reading the rest of the series.Delete
I haven't read Mockingjay but I generally like Moore.
I have read good things about FanGirl so I am keen to read your review! Have a great week Greg!ReplyDelete
Thanx for visiting My Weekly Wrap-Up!

Thanks Naomi you too!!Delete
I wish I enjoyed Fangirl more, my review was a 3 star but I had a lot of issues getting to that point. I love the premise though.I'm sort of looking toward to Fall...but I don't want it to get below 60 ever, lol. I'm a summer girl. Razor's Edge looks awesome and I'm totally for a Loki movie (as long as it's well written and not just an excuse for money).ReplyDelete
I read your review and I can see where you're coming from. I'm liking it a little more I think but I see your point about some of the characters. And yes below 60 is not good- I want fall and then maybe summer again! LOLDelete
You read Fangirl!! :) Cannot wait to see what you think!ReplyDelete
Yeah I am a huge Starwars fan but I don't think I could ever bring myself to read the books.
I cannot wait till Emerald Green comes out!!!!! Have you read the series??? It's really great!
Great haul and Happy Reading!
-Rashika @ Tangled in Pages
Thanks Rashika. I felt a little weird buying a book called FanGIRL but I liked the premise. Who can't relate to someone struggling to grow up and keep their fannish ness? Is that a word? :) Anyway yeah I don't normally read the SW books either. And I have not read the series but the cover looked good.Delete
I hope you enjoyed Fangirl :D I haven't gotten around to that one YET ;)ReplyDelete
I think you'll like it when you do. I laugh a lot, Rowell just says a lot of things in it I can relate too, even though I'm a guy. :)Delete
Some Great books on your list! Here are mine> http://reviewbooksandmore.com/2013/09/16/its-monday-what-are-you-reading/ReplyDelete
Thank you for stopping Andrea. Have a great week!Delete
I heard good things about Fangirl and all of Rainbow Rowell's books. I guess you are a Fanboy of Fangirl then? :)ReplyDelete
Yeah I guess I am! I liked Fangirl. Now someone needs to write the guy version. :)Delete
I've had Slated for a while and it is one I really need to read! Fangirl too! I still need to pick that one up though! Have you read Eleanor and Park? If not I highly recommend! It was probably the best book I've read so far this year!ReplyDelete
I have not, but I'm definetly open to more of her books. Fangirl impressed me enough that I would give her a try again...Delete
Love the cover of Emerald Green.ReplyDelete
ENJOY your week.
My It's Monday, What Are You Reading
You too Elizabeth, thank you!!!Delete
I'm going to have to look into The Very Nearly Honorable Pirates for my little guy. It looks like a blast!ReplyDelete
Yes it looks very good! I'm chomping at the bit to get to it, just love the premise.ReplyDelete
I'll be interested to hear what you think of Slated...that book has been kind of on my radar for a while now. Thanks for stopping by earlier!ReplyDelete
Wendy @ Escape Into Fiction
Thanks Wendy! I'm about 5 chapters in and so far liking it... it's intriguing.Delete
Oh, I can't wait to read Magic Marks the Spot. It sounds like a great adventure story.ReplyDelete
I wanted it as soon as I saw the cover, and the I've heard good stuff too!Delete
FanGirl sounds really good.ReplyDelete
Have a great week!
