Update Yourselves

I understand everyone is gearing up for midterms/finals/whatever in US-landia which is kind of killing the blogosphere slowly, but from the comments I'm getting, you're all still alive and responsive so answer me this:

How are you? Whatcha readin'?

Me, I'm reading Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. And also, to a lesser extent, My Sweet Audrina by V.C. Andrews.

Ooooh, I bought Never Let Me Go per Lenore's suggestion! I bet it's good!

*waves* I'm pretty good. Busy at work, just finished Kiss Me Kill Me this morning and have gone back to Going To See The Elephant, my December LibraryThing Early Reviewer's book!

Khy said...

Heyyyy, I updated today. Dx

I'm reading The Secret Life of a Teenage Siren, the first Pulse RoCom I've read. It's pretty good so far.

I'm reading 3 Willows: The Sisterhood Continues by Ann Brashares. (I'm going to be reading the second part of the Secret Circle series next, but then I swear I'm going to read something at my age level.) I'm also going to be reading Never Let Me Go at some point this year, so I hope it's good.

I'm reading to many books to count

I'm reading The Rule of Won by Stefan Petrucha. I'm liking it so far. Next in my pile is Shelter Me, which I am looking forward too.

I've just started my classes, so I'm not quite that stressed yet. I'm reading Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke and The Thirteenth Tale: A Novel by Diane Setterfield, both for book groups. I'm undecided about The Thirteenth Tale, but I'm really liking Jonathan Strange!

I just finished My Most Wonderful Year, which I adored, and am now reading Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Piccoult. I've never read any Piccoult before, but I found this one in the book section of the store that my mother would not leave, and became mildly addicted. I'm enjoying it so far.

I am reading The Explosionist by Jenny Davidson and loooving it!

And I'm so, so glad that I don't have midterms or finals or classes of any sort. :) (Although I do have to go to work every day, so... uh... yeah.)

I'm here, and I'm not gearing up for finals, I'm gearing up to start grad school! Just a little scary to be in school again, but I'm sure I'll manage. (Library school has to be somewhat interesting, right?)

I just finished Sleepless by Terri Clark, which I really enjoyed and am debating on which book in my long review book pile to be started next.

Wallflower Christmas by Lisa Kleypas.

Actually, I just finished it.

It's really cute ;)

I was reading A Song for Summer by Eva Ibbotson, but classes started today and I'm already struggling throught he first few chapters of Nostromo by Joseph Conrad. So maybe I'll get to finish Summer during spring break. >.<

I am reading The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes in order to bribe a friend. Actually, I have a lot of reading like this lined up...

I'm almost finished with OUTLIERS by Malcolm Gladwell, which is fabulous. I'm about 150 pages in to THE PILLARS OF THE EARTH, but feeling commitment-phobic about it and so I keep putting other things ahead of it.

Alessandra said...

I'm about 150 pages into The Time Traveller's Wife. I don't like it much so far, but I've hard such good things about this book that I'm willing to go on and hope it gets better.

I adored Never Let Me Go! It was the first book my awesome-super-fabulous book club chose to read, and it led to an excellent discussion.

Like bostonerin, I, too, am finishing Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell, and it is absolutely fascinating. I have plans to stop at B&N on the way home to buy The Tipping Point, as when I finish Outliers, my book queue will finally be empty. :(

I'm reading Into the Storm by Suzanne Brockmann and Murder List by Julie Garwood.

Brooke Reviews said...

I just finished reading Paper Towns by John Green. I thought it was really good...although kind of long for what it was. I definitely laughed out loud at many parts. I'm now reading Broken by Kelley Armstrong. :)

BookChic said...

I am reading What Would Emma Do? by Eileen Cook, Dust of 100 Dogs by A.S. King, and In Too Deep by Jennifer Banash. And soon, probably this weekend, I'm gonna be starting Take the Reins by Jessica Burkhart.

I'm a busy guy! lol

Megan said...

So I am reading A LOT of books right now, and since you asked you get to suffer through the list.
