My friends, I have had one of those weeks where it takes the whole thing to read just one book. We were in Washington D.C. on a brief vacation at the beginning of the week and I've been practicing the rest of the week to fill in for our church pianist. Plus the book I've been reading is sort of a dense read...I don't mean that in a negative way, but it takes some brain power and it's not the kind of book you can power through.
I need to get reading pronto because I think I have a problem known as too-many-new-releases-itis. Between the library, winning a book, and giving in and buying a book I was really looking forward to, I have these books sitting on my shelf right now:
I think I have a problem....

Thanks! I am looking forward to reading it. :)Delete
I know all about too-many-new-releases-itis! Have a great week of reading.ReplyDelete
It seems to be a common problem among the book blogging people...Delete
LOL, if that is all you have on your shelf - trust me - that isn't a problem!ReplyDelete
Have a fab reading week!
Shelleyrae @ Book'd Out
If only! Those are just the new releases I've picked up in the past week or two.Delete
The new Atkinson is all over the blogs! with very positive reviews.ReplyDelete
I'm psyched. Everyone seems to love it so far. :)Delete
The cover of Life After Life is capturing my eye.ReplyDelete
I feel like I've heard good things about The Unchangeable Spots of Leopards... I hope you have a good reading week :-)
The cover is really interesting and I think (from what I've heard) that it's one of those covers that is actually connected to what happens in the story!Delete
Have a wonderful reading week!
I'm eagerly awaiting Life After Life and Z. Hope you like these and all your others!ReplyDelete
Here's my It's Monday! What Are You Reading?.
Thank you - I hope you enjoy them too!Delete
Unchangeable Spots is such a groovy read, I hope you like it! Fever is one of my recent favorites, I hope you like that one too!ReplyDelete
I know what you mean about those dense reads. They aren't the kind you can zip through.
Have a fab week!
A groovy read? I'm really excited now. :)Delete
I try not to get too caught up with how many books I'm reading, but it's tough when you feel like you've been reading the same one for forever!
I read the sample of Life after Life on ibooks and it didn't thrill me, so I''m going to skip that one. But I like the look and sound of Z.:)ReplyDelete
It's good to know what works for you. Sometimes it seems like everyone and their mother love a book and I am totally unimpressed.Delete
I'm really excited to read Z. I'm so fascinated by F Scott and Zelda.
Earlier today I read a really good review about Life after Life by Kate Atkinson! I hope you will enjoy it.ReplyDelete
I see The Unchangeable Spots of Leopards is available on Netgalley :) Maybe I should pick it up too!
Yay! It's always wonderful to hear good things about books you are about to read. :)Delete
I have to admit that I have not hopped on the Netgalley train yet. It's probably best - I have enough to read as it is!
If you have a problem, you are most certainly not alone!ReplyDelete
I have Z and Life After Life to look forward to as well :)
It's good to know we are all surrounded by similar giant piles of books. :)Delete
Looks like a great problem when you have that group! I really enjoyed Fever!ReplyDelete
It is a good problem to have, isn't it? :)Delete
not a bad thing. FEVER is a great book.ReplyDelete
That's what I keep hearing. I'm really excited to read it.Delete
If those are the only books sitting on your shelf, you are doing good. I hope you had a great time in D.C., I live and work in D.C. so I avoid all tourist areas during cherry blossom time. The Unchangeable Spots of Leopards looks good.ReplyDelete
Alas, those are just the books I've picked up in the past week or so!Delete
We had a wonderful time in D.C. We didn't see too many cherry blossoms, but we went to the zoo and three of the museums. Plus it's just fun to spend a few days with my mom and sisters. :)
I really want to read Z and Fever! Also, I think the Unchangeable Spots of Leopards looks great too! Hope you have a great week of reading!ReplyDelete
I know! There are so many new releases right now that look oh-so-tempting.Delete
Have a wonderful week of reading!
Equal of the Sun looks amazing...I'm going to have to add it to my TBR list!ReplyDelete
Check out my It's Monday! Post :)
Have a great week!
-Kimberly @ Turning the Pages
I recently won it from another blogger. It came out in hardcover last year, but was just released in paperback. I hope you enjoy it!Delete
I love your list of To Reads. I am adding the Zelda Fitzgerald novel to my TBA now. Fever and Equal to the Sun look just as tempting! Have a great week!ReplyDelete
Rebecca @ The Key to the Gate
Thanks so much. I hope you enjoy reading Z!Delete
Life After Life is on my wishlist, I've read rave reviews for it. I'm enjoying some quick, easy reads this week and must say I'm enjoying reading more than one book for the week. Happy reading :)ReplyDelete
It is nice, isn't it? I'm speeding through When Will There Be Good News and it's such a good change of pace.Delete
Have an awesome week!
Wow there are so many good books on your shelf! I wouldn't know where to begin, if I were you :PReplyDelete
I'm generally going by a very advanced method - which book is due back to the library first?? :)Delete
Haha! That's a good one.Delete
Getting all of these in at once is really terrible for my wallet! :)Delete
