What I'm Reading 9/21 + Awards!

What are you reading Mondays? is a meme hosted by J. Kaye's Book Blog.
Check out J.Kaye's Book Blog for what others are reading.
  This week I'm planning on Beastly (Flinn), Wings (Pike), and, if there is time, Generation Dead (Waters).  I'm listening to Life as We Knew It (Pffefer, Bauer).  I was listening to Everlost (Shusterman) but the narrator's voice was giving me a headache so I'm switching to the print whenever I get a chance. And then I don't know.  Suggestions for audio books?

Since last week I've finished Alice in Wonderland (Carroll) and that's it.  I'm not sure what happened, life I guess. I abandoned Tattoo (Barnes) since I couldn't get into it. Anyway, I also finished Messenger (Lowry) on audio.  The review for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (Grahame-Smith) went up and so did The Taming of the Shrew/10 Things I Hate About You double review.

If you are a regular follower of my blog, then you can look forward to all Alice in Wonderland review week this week.


I got the Spread the Love Around award from Tam at Bailey's and Books.  Thanks so much!  Tam has a fun blog and she is also doing the Everything Austen Challenge. 

So I'm passing this on to
Books Obsession
The Zen Leaf
Thoughts on YA Literature
Trisha's Book Blog

Speaking of Trisha at Trisha's Book Blog, she gave me the Let's Be Friends Award this week as well.  Thanks Trisha!!  We have become friendly after I helped answer a couple of questions she had.  In addition to her book reviews, Trisha has a Giveaway of the Day post which is really nice.  

Blogs that receive the Let’s Be Friends Award are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers.

So I'm passing this on to:

Bookworm Nation
Gofita's Page
Layers of Thought
One Reader's Trash is Another Reader's Treasure
Stephanie's Written Word
That Chick that Reads
The O.W.L.

    You changed your template. How fun! Seasonal fall colors nice - now I wonder if I can do a little "deelybopper" that shows my awards like yours....

    Congrats on your awards and Thank you, thank you for mine!

  4. I read Wings over the summer and thought it was sweet. Recommended it to my 15yo niece and she loved it : )

  5. That is such a cute award! Thank you! :)

    PS - I love the new layout!

  6. You may be interested in RANDOM MAGIC by Sasha Soren. It's an Alice in Wonderland based book. I haven't read it yet, though!

    Good luck with all your reading this week!

  7. I am working on Pride and Prejudice this week and you are adding zombies? LOL... will I ever catch up? :)

  12. Congrats on your awards and thank you for the one you gave me!!

  13. Thanks for the award! :)

    By the way - I'm having an Alice in Wonderland Sweet 16 party in two weeks. I've never read the books before but I'm definitely going to read your reviews for it once they're up!

  14. Thanks again for the award. I just realized that I never left a comment for you on an award I had for you last week...

    I haven't figured out how to do proper links in comments, so the link is below.

  15. Looks like you've got a great week of reading :)

    Congrats on the awards - they are well deserved!

    And, like others, I love the new layout too!

  16. I really liked Everlost, but I read the print version. The sequel is due out this fall, so I'm looking forward to that.

    My favorite teen audio book this year has been Prism. I reviewed it, but I'm not sure how to post a link in the comment box - maybe this will work:

    Looks like you have a good reading week ahead!


  17. I gave my sister an audio copy of Neil Gaiman's Anansi Boys, and she said she loved it. Maybe you will too? The written version is awesome, too.

  18. Jennifer & Trisha - Thanks!

    Shellie - It's not hard to do. This is where I learned how:

    Gofita - You're welcome!

    Mary - I'm hoping I like it too.

    Amanda - You're welcome & thanks. I get bored with the same old thing sometimes.

    Shelia- You should read it. It's something.

    Allison - I'll check that out, thanks!
