Sunday Post / It's Monday. What Are You Reading?

GIVEAWAY for a copy of Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell- enter to win here (US residents only). Good luck!
This has been an interesting week. Been very busy with two concerts for my daughter- orchestra and band. She did great and we are very proud of her. Lots of other stuff going on too so I didn't get much reading time in this week. No reviews from me, but I'm happy to report my oldest daughter has posted a guest review- you can find that here. She reviewed Twice Upon A Time: Rapunzel by Wendy Mass and I think she did great. She did all the writing, I just made a few suggestion and edited lightly- let us know what you think in the comments.
Congratulations to Melodi LadyRuger Mance for winning a SIGNED copy of Letters from Skye by Jessica Brockmole. Hope you enjoy the book Melodi!
AROUND THE BLOGOSPHERE
Some good stuff from io9 this week. Check out the following discussions:
Why is JJ Abrams replacing the writer of Star Wars Episode VII? This could be good or it could be bad. I'm not sure about JJ Abrams being involved in this movie but Lawrence Kasdan- thats more comforting. He was involved with The Empire Strikes Back so maybe he knows what he's doing. Really though- I have a very bad feeling about this.
Divergent movie- a visit to the set, with pics and lots of details of filming. If you're into this movie, check it out!
Who remembers Tom Swift? The comments are where it's at here.
Hunger Games: Catching Fire movie details.
The greatest chase in scifi/ fantasy? Loads of choices here, and hilarious comments.
Exploding pumpkins. Maybe don't try this at home kiddies.
So how was your week?

Oo I really want to read The Clockwork Scarab. I hope you are liking it!ReplyDelete
I liked the beginning a lot, now I need to sit down and devote a few hours to reading so I can get farther into it! :) Thanks for visiting!Delete

I need to get back to it, it's been a bad reading week for me. :) Hope to finish this week! Have a good one...Delete
I'm always intrigued by covers with the Eiffel Tower on them -- that book looks very different from the books on France I've been reading.ReplyDelete

It's one of those steampunk- y affairs. :) A little different taste of PAris but it's kind of intriguing...Delete
Sounds like some great things happening. :) And hope you enjoy Clockwork Scarab. I've heard some good things about it and it sounds like my kind of read. :)ReplyDelete
Have a great week!
Thanks Melissa, I really like the premise and so far it's pretty good, I just need more time to read! :)Delete
All the books you're showing sound really good. I'll look forward to seeing what you think of them. I hope you get more reading time this week.ReplyDelete
Thanks, I do too! Appreciate your stopping by!Delete
I think I've mentioned that I liked A Conspiracy of Alchemists a lot, it's such an interesting blend of genres. I hope you're enjoying it.ReplyDelete
And I'm curious about Clockwork Scarab, can't wait to read your review.
Happy reading, Greg.
Thanks Maja! I was curious about it too and had to pick it up... it's pretty good so far!Delete
Divergent! :D and exploding pumpkins? O_O Hope you enjoy the week and thanks for stopping by! :)ReplyDelete
~Sophia @ Bookwyrming Thoughts
Sure thing! I'm not sure I would try that though!Delete
I'm curious about both Clockwork Scarab and A Conspiracy of Alchemists. I'm looking forward to your review! Thanks for stopping by my Sunday Post :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Lanaia- have a good reading week.Delete
Ooh, you have a bad feeling about J.J. Abrams/Star Wars? We are at very opposite ends of the spectrum. I have so many good feelings. Good, good feelings. I do feel bad for the screenwriter they let go, but Abrams and Kasdan will be amazing.ReplyDelete
I hope you're right! :) I think my problem is I'm just so skeptical they will do these right. I liked Super 8 though- and I do like Larry Kasdan so maybe it will be good. And I really want to see the Millenium Falcon again... :)Delete
The Clockwork Scarab and A Conspiracy of Alchemists both look very intriguing...hope you enjoy them!ReplyDelete
Have a great week!
Here's my What are you reading? Post!

Thanks Wendy- I really like the premise of Clockwork Scarab, but my reading time has been like nil lately. I'm looking forward to diving deeper into it!Delete
I'm pretty late stopping by (sorry; it's been a very rough week!), but how are you liking The Clockwork Scarab?ReplyDelete
Hi Lark, I just finished and am doing the review now. It's not bad but I wasn't blown away by it- I'd say slightly above average perhaps. :)ReplyDelete
I hope you enjoyed/are enjoying The Clockwork Scarab - it sounded good and I really want to read it! Hope you had a great Halloween!ReplyDelete
Thanks Berls- you too! Hope you were able to se my review if you're curious- and hope you like it if you read it! Take care!Delete
