It's Monday! What are you reading? #21


It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is being hosted by Sheila at One Persons Journey through a World of Books.

This is a great weekly event where everyone can keep track of the books finished last week & the books planning to read this week!

Last week I've finished:
  • Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins - I loved it! 
I also started & finished:
  • The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien - I loved it!
  • Monster Madness by Dean Lorey - I loved it!
  • Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card - I loved it!
This week I'll finish Never Marry a Stranger by Gayle Callen & I'm thinking about reading Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman & Good Omens by Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett and maybe even a Doctor Who book! 


  1. I loved Good Omens when I read that awhile back. I need to read my 3 Who books..and then get a few with 11, however I prefer the ones with 10, because...well I like looking at David Tennant on the cover of my books.

  2. Hex Hall is one I would like to read sometime. Happy reading this week.

  3. I want to read Hex Hall. I've heard good things about it. Happy reading this week. :)

  4. Wow you are four for four this week.But then all of your books were really love inspiring reads the only one I have not read is Monster Madness will stop by later to check out the review. Have a great week.

  5. You really read an interesting mix of books. I had read Good Omens and enjoyed it though I didn't get all of the references since I don't know anything about the horsemen of the apocalypse. Ender's Game I read many years ago and have been intending to reread, since I completely forgot what its about. I'm not much of a Tolkien fan though, as I found his books kind of boring (though I wouldn't admit this on my blog for fear of the repercussions;) )

  6. I loved Hex hall too - wasnt that a fun read? Enjoy all the great books you have coming up this week!

  7. Mistress of the Dark, I have to read 4 Doctor Who books this month for my Doctor Who challenge! I prefer the books with the 10th Doctor, too :)

    Simcha, I read The Hobbit last autumn & although I liked it, I wasn't too impressed, so I was reluctant about reading LotR, but I loved the 1st one & I'll definitely read the rest ;)

  8. I've been seeing Hex Hall all around the blogosphere...I'm still not certain that it's a book I'd enjoy, but it's grabbing a lot of readers.

    Here's my Monday:


  9. I read the book Enchantment by Orson Scott Card and really enjoyed the read. I have been meaning to read Ender's Game, and it seems I ought to considering everyone who has read it loves it. :D

    I have an ARC for Hex Hall that was given to me by a friend. I keep forgetting about it, but when I see that others have loved it...I really need to remember this book.

    The Fellowship of the Ring...don't know what is wrong with me but every time attempt these books I fail. I, for whatever reason, am overwhelmed by them and I certainly do not avoid chunkster type books.

    Hope you have a great week!

  10. Ibeeeg, it's not only you! I've had the LotR books for almost 10 years & this is the first time I read one! Ender's Game is really great book, that I recommend it! Also, Hex Hall is fun with quite a few twists & I can't wait for the next one!

  11. I loved Good Omens. Despite my love for most of Gaiman's works and the Anansi folk tales, I didn't like Anansi Boys. I found both main character displeasing and didn't want to spend time with either. I did go through the book and read the Anansi folktales that were included. I liked most of those.

  12. I know I don't have to participate in the challenge, but there are a lot of interesting books here that I will have to add to my must read list.

  13. I loved Good Omens. I like Neil Gaiman's American Gods and Neverwhere better than Anasazi Boys but they are all interesting.
