One Book, Two Book, Three Book, Four… And Five

Found this meme through Angie, Janice and Nomes and since I don’t have any posts lined up for today, I thought I’d do this quick meme to let you guys know what I’ve been reading lately. I promise I’ll come up with reviews soon. šŸ™‚ I’m still experiencing a vacation hangover and I’d rather be lazy than do anything productive.

1. Book I am currently reading: The Kitchen Daughter by Jael McHenry, which I won in an ebook contest held by MangoJuiced. I’ve been wanting to read this for a while so thank you, MangoJuiced, for giving me a copy. I’m only 20% in but I’m liking it so far. I’m reading this on the Kindle Boyfriend. Even though I left Kindle Boyfriend at home during the weekend (didn’t want to risk it getting damaged at the beach), I didn’t start on anything else while I was away so I can just continue reading this one.

2. Last book I finished: The Perilous Gard by Elizabeth Marie Pope – I bought my copy of this back in 2007 and I finally got to read it! I’m hoping to review it in this week’s Retro Friday meme.

3. Next book I want to read: The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater, which was my most recent Want Books pick. Read these reviews from Angie and Holly and you’d understand why I can’t wait to read this book.

4. Last book I bought: Wonderstuck by Brian Selznick – I couldn’t help but grab a copy when I saw it in a local bookstore. I know this one will be a quick and enjoyable read because of all the illustrations mixed in with the text and I’m hoping to read it soon.

5. Last book I was given: Same answer as number 1.

What about the rest of you, what are you reading lately? If you answered the same meme, feel free to leave a link in the comments section.

  1. I recommend a ziplock for Kindle Boyfriend if it is anywhere near water. Maybe one of the ones with the airtight zip seals. Ah vacation hangover. Sounds nice! I really need a vacation! OK, I think working last weekend is just making me YEARN for a vacation pretty badly this week, but I started planning what I want to do for Thanksgiving.

    • I wanted to try ziplock! But then I asked my friend who also has her own Kindle Boyfriend if that’s a good idea and she said it might be too risky. She has a waterproof case that I could have borrowed but we couldn’t meet up right before my trip.

      Weekend work will make you hungry for vacation time! But then again, Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away so I guess it’s okay that you’re already planning for it. Wish I could go to the States once during Thanksgiving so I’d get to experience it.

  2. I think I missed how you actually call it Kindle Boyfriend because I totally would’ve said HAHAHAHA a lot earlier. OMG I love that! ā¤

    Also, I won The Scorpio Races! So I'm still doing nicely with my book buying ban, thank you, but YAY so excited to read it!

    And of course, Selznick! WOOT!

    • LOL I think I’ve mentioned it on the blog and Twitter several times before? It’s what my friend and I call our Kindles. I remember when I texted her that I got mine, she replied with “Your boyfriend has arrived!” and since we’re still single, the name stuck. šŸ˜›

      You won The Scorpio Races? Lucky you! Let me know what you think of it when you get to read it.

    • I’ve read Lament, Ballad and Shiver and I enjoyed reading all three (more than other YA paranormal romance novels out there) but I didn’t fall in love with them. I’ve seen mixed reviews of The Scorpio Races so I really don’t know what I’ll think of it.

    • I’m so excited to finish reading all of the books that I mentioned too. šŸ˜› It’s a fun and easy meme to do and perfect for someone like me because I haven’t prepared any posts lately.

  3. this is a great meme, isn’t it? and a fun and easy post. i will prob use it again (although i do not like the meme title… šŸ˜‰ )

    I am thinking about getting the scorpio races as well. it is not my usual read but a lot of people have me intrigued about it.

    • It really is a good meme and something that you can repeat after a couple of months. But yes, the title isn’t that nice.

      I’ve actually seen mixed reviews of the book in Goodreads but I think the positive feedback outweigh the negative so I’m still curious.
