Hello, bookish people! How were your weekends? I saw The Hunger Games on Sunday afternoon. I really enjoyed it. While my friends and I spent a lot of time nitpicking, overall we thought it was great. I am excited to go again with the husband, my mama, my sister, and anyone else who wants to go!
I'm continuing my mission to read through the F Scott Fitzgerald canon this year. I will be reading The Beautiful and the Damned this week. You are welcome to join me. Come chat about the book on Friday!

What are you reading this week? Let me know in the comments!
I will be interested in your thoughts on Carry The One. It did not bowl me over liek I thought it would.ReplyDelete
YAY for Hunger Games!!!
I didn't read your review yet because I knew I would be reading it soon. We will have to compare notes when I am done!Delete
I've always thought I might write a book about Genghis Khan. He intrigues me.ReplyDelete
It's Monday! What Are You Reading? Hope you will stop by!
He's a fascinating guy! And I feel like the further we go back in history, the less we know. I was happy to learn more about that time period and the Mongol people.Delete
You have some different titles. Glad you enjoyed The Hunger Games movie!ReplyDelete
Enjoy your reading week.
Thank you! Have you seen the movie yet?Delete
The Beautiful and the Damned is my favorite Fitzgerald novel.ReplyDelete
My favorite read this week was the audio version of Shutter Island. Please come see what else I'm reading.
I've read it before, but not for many years. I'm heading your way now!Delete
Thanks Abbi. You too!ReplyDelete
(New follower) - you have a lot of interesting books I haven't heard of before.ReplyDelete
Thank you Lynne! I'm so glad you will be sticking around. :)Delete
I feel like I am the only one who hasn't seen The Hunger Games yet. Great list of books. You have a great week coming up!ReplyDelete
That's not true! I'm making plan to go with a lot of people who haven't seen it yet.Delete
Have a great week, Lisa!
Looks like some good reading. The covers this week all kind of coordinate -- lots of old style black and white with a little bit of warm browns and reds thrown in for accent!ReplyDelete

Double win - good books and displayed in an aesthetically pleasing way!Delete
I really like the look of Half Blood Blues. I don't know if I'd be eager to read another Fitzgerald book after having to read The Great Gatsby so many times in high school and college English classes! Maybe I'd enjoy The Beautiful and Damned better, though.ReplyDelete
Fitzgerald is one of my favorite authors, so I'm reading through all of his books. It's ok so far - I'm not sure it's his strongest work.Delete
The Mongol Queens looks really good! And the Kathryn Harrison! Have a great reading week!ReplyDelete
The Mongol Queens was not quite what I expected. My review will be up tomorrow.Delete
I hope you have a great week as well!
I have Enchantments on my Kindle from NetGalley I'm hoping to read it in April :) Happy reading! +New follower :)ReplyDelete
Here's my It's Monday! Post :)

I hope you enjoy Enchantments and I'm so glad you will be following!Delete
I'd like to see what you end up thinking about "Carry the One", as it seems to be either love or "meh" (I was on the "meh" side of this one). Hunger Games is on the plate for me and my Bebe Boy James this weekend as well - can't wait!ReplyDelete
That's what I've seen as well. It seemed to get a lot of buzz early on, but then most readers found it over-hyped. Have a great time at the movie!Delete
