Hello, friends! How are things going?
I am a happy camper tonight since I'm watching the Tony Awards while writing this post. I am a huge theatre nerd to go along with my book geekiness. Books plus theatre plus this bowl of ice cream I have next to me = a happy Lindsey.

What did you read this week?
Both March and Personal Days sound good! I knew I recognized Brooks, I really liked her Year of Wonders.ReplyDelete
I hope you had a fab time geeking out last night ;)
I've really enjoyed the two books of March's that I've read so far. After March, I just have one more novel to go!Delete
We got rid of cable, which means we couldn't watch any award shows, just clips. Hope it was entertaining! Looks like some great and interesting reads on your plate. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
The Monster Report
Some days, that sounds like the way to go! I think our little guy has more love for the Playstation than the tv...but that's a whole other story.Delete
Thanks for visiting!
I read and reviewed March in December. Liked it a lot. Here's the review: http://readlately.com/?p=114ReplyDelete
Yay! That is what I like to hear when I am just starting a book. I will definitely check out your review when I am done.Delete
Hope you're enjoying March, I love Geraldine Brooks. Patrick Ness is on my TBR list, I keep hearing raves about his books. Hope you enjoyed the Tonys.ReplyDelete
Patrick Ness is great. If you are going to read the Chaos Walking books, go ahead and get all of them. You won't want to wait to read the next one!Delete
Very nice books, by the look of it, I hope you ejoy them. Have a great week & kind regards,ReplyDelete
Thank you. I hope you have a great week too!Delete
Looks like you had a great week.ReplyDelete
I've heard good things about The World's Strongest Librarian.
It was a wonderful read. I don't know that I would have picked it up on my own though. Give it a try if you are considering it!Delete
Wow, you've got some great books going! The Knife of Never Letting Go is one of my Big Book reads for this summer - I can't wait! (You should check out the Big Book Summmer Challenge - I bet plenty of your books would qualify!) I really want to read The World's Strongest Librarian, too - just read a great review of it this morning.ReplyDelete
I hope you enjoy March - I loved it. That's the book that made me realize that I DO like historical fiction and that history isn't the boring subject I thought it was in school!
I like theater, too, though I rarely get to see a show. Try to get to Broadway with my mom once a year. I am currently in mourning over the cancellation of Smash!
Enjoy your books this week -
Book By Book
Big Book Summer Challenge
I remember your Big Book Summer Challenge from last year. I will definitely come check it out!Delete
I love historical fiction, but I usually end up reading things set in WWII. It's good for me to mix things up a little bit.
I haven't been to a show in while either. I was going to see Bonnie and Clyde last year, but it closed before we could go! I'm going to miss Smash too. Megan Hilty was part of a funny number during the Tonys bemoaning all of the cancelled shows that featured Broadway actors.
Thank you for visiting my blog. The Worlds Strongest Librarian and Personal Days sound interesting. Have a great day!ReplyDelete
I'm reading Personal Days as a part of my attempts to read PEN/Hemingway nominated and winning books this year. So far, they have all been really good.Delete
Have a wonderful week!
I still need to read the Chaos Walking trilogy, I just keep postponing it, and I've been doing that for years.ReplyDelete
Happy reading & have a great week!
It's a great series! I think we all have those books we have been meaning to read for forever, don't we??Delete
Have a great week too!
I LOVE that keyboard cover on Personal Days. Going to check it out.ReplyDelete
My It's Monday!! What are You Reading?
I love an inventive cover. There are so many out there that look the same!Delete
That sounds like a fantastic way to spend a night!ReplyDelete
Coincidentally, I had just added Personal Days to my TBR list - looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
How funny! I hadn't heard of it until I started going through the PEN/Hemingway finalists and winners. I'm looking forward to reading it.Delete
