It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

A weekly event hosted by Sheila from One Persons Journey Through a World Of Books to discuss your reading week ~ the books you've read and those you plan on reading in the coming week.

My February reading total is a wee bit sad but on the plus side I got caught up on a few more reviews! In the February 12x12 Challenge I was shooting for 10 books but only managed to finish 7. Last week was my best week for the month, finishing 3 books. I don't know what's wrong with me, I've got so many awesome books to read and I do feel like reading but I'm finding it had to stay balanced between reading, reviewing, commenting on blogs and life in general LOL. Organisation and time management do not seem to be my strong points :-)

Watch out for my March competition, it should be up in the next day or two and also the winners from my Feb competitions ... Stay tuned!

  1. You've read some good books this week and still are. Have Fun!!! :)

  2. So, I've seriously seen My Love Lies Bleeding a couple times today and it sounds really interesting.

    I enjoyed all of your reviews (i'm sure you can guess which i liked best. lol)

    Hope you find a whole huge chunk of free time just for your reading this week! Enjoy!

  3. Very much enjoyed reading your great reviews. I really want to read Women of Magdalene but so far haven't been able to track down a copy.

    Have a great reading week! :-)

  4. I talked about the difficulties of finding balance between readnig, blogging and home life on my February Wrap Up post. Its very hard, so don't feel bad about it, its not a competition after all, just read what you can :-)

    I am looking forward to your Iron King Review

  5. I have posted my its Monday post if you want to check it out

  6. I think you've done tremendous this month in reading, especially having spent a weekend at scrap camp (green with envy).

    * Have a great week!

  7. Hey Sheree...I think 7 books is great! I have been averaging 4 books much lower than my 2009 monthly averages. I would love to pick the pace back up, but seem to be having troubles with that.

    I look forward to reading your The Iron King review. I am interested in that book.
    I am going to be taking a blog break starting tuesday or reading blogs, a posting my Polishing Mud Balls blog so reading your review will have to wait until April. I must remember to read it.

    I hope you have a great week!!!

  8. You did really well with your reviews this week! Hope you have a great reading week!

  9. I can't wait to read your thoughts on The Iron King. That books seems to be mentioned on everyone's blogs lately!! Also, I'm really intrigued by the cover of Burn. It definitely looks like something I want to check out!!

  10. I'm looking forward to your thoughts on the Iron King and Burn. The Crying Tree looks interesting and I love the Morganville Vampire series.

  11. I'll be interested to see what you think on the Iron King!
    Ever since I started my blog I've been reading a lot less than usual, but I used to read a crazy amount.

  12. I know how you feel--my February total is REALLY low. Like only 3 books low. Yikes!
    I hope March is better to you and to me!

  13. I am in the same boat as you are when it comes to reading and reviewing and commenting. It is all very time consuming, and while I do love it it certainly cuts into the reading aspect.

    I finished Iron King this week too. Have a great week.

  14. Looks like a good reading week! Glass Houses looks fascinating!

  15. You had a brilliant week with an excellent line-up. I adored The Killing Tree and I want to read Burn. Happy reading. My Monday:

  16. I've just finished reading Glass Houses and I absolutely loved it! Looks like you've got lots of great reading coming up this week :)
