It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

This weekly meme is hosted by The Book Date.

Well, it's Monday.  Again.

*Sigh* I feel like this week has passed on by all too quickly.  I didn't exercise like I intended, and I didn't read as much as I intended.  Bummer.

I've been trying to sleep better as well, and that seems to working....I think?  It's a win-loss really.  On the one hand, I'm getting up by 7 a.m. every morning, and I'm able to watch the news while I work on my computer, and then I have the whole morning to get other stuff done (like reading).  On the other hand....I'm getting up before 7 a.m., irregardless of how late I went to bed.  This morning, I kid you not, I woke up at 5:50 a.m..  I don't mind the waking up early bit, I just wish I felt fully rested when I wake up.

In the meantime, I did manage to finish two books this past week.  No wait....three.  Oh hey, I read three books this past week!  Yay, I fulfilled my reading goal! *(Doing a happy dance)*

Here are the books I finished.  Clicking the covers will take you to the review.

Books I Read:

Okay, so since reading three books a week seems really achievable (especially now that I get up early), I'm going to try and finish another three books.  Here's my upcoming reading list, although I probably won't get to all of them just yet.  Click on the covers to find out more about each one.

My Planned Reads:

Looking back at this list, I can see that I seem to be on a bit of a re-read kick lately.  I think I'm still recovering from Sanderson's Stormlight Archive, so I'm reverting to re-reads to take a little break.  I'm re-reading Fire so that I can comfortably re-read Bitterblue and determine if it's a favorite.  I'm re-reading Wizard's First Rule because it's been on my mind lately and I never finished the series.  Black Butler Vol. 6 is the new guy; a friend of mine loaned me the mangas after I told her how much I liked season one of the TV series (don't watch season two....just don't).  I finished the first five last year, and now I'm the mood to continue it some more!

Anywhoo, I'm going to continue watching the news and then maybe do a little yoga and walking.  I seriously need to take control of my exercise.

Have a great week, everyone!

  1. OOh nice! Yeah, the need for sleep is a pesky nuisance to the reader! I wish I could forgo it and still be functional at work and such, but it's just not possible! Hope you get the amount of reading you want done, done this week!

  2. Looks like you've got some great reads. Graceling looks very intriguing, and Ready Player One has been on my TBR for quite awhile. I'll get around to reading it one of these days... :)

  3. Three books in one week is amazing in my books. :)

    Have a fantastic week.

  4. Ugh yes, Black Butler should have finished after season 1, the second season was so disappointing >.<

  5. My cousin gave me the Terry Goodkind book to read, she loved it!! And I have sleeping issues too not matter how tired I am I only sleep 2-4 hours at a time.
