It's Monday!!! In my mailbox - - what am I reading?


Marcia at The Printed Page hosts Mailbox Monday!
The in my mailbox part of today is crazy for me this week!  I just got somewhere around 100 books.  Granted 60 of these were amazing garage sale finds - some of which will be finding themselves in the hands of the reading club students, some will go to the elementary school media center, and of course some will be staying with me and my family.  Then we had the bookfair at our school, and I run the bookfair - so I had to support it and buy many books - and it was a buy one/get one fair!  So....I am not listing them all here because the post would be terribly long - if you would like to see which books I got please check out my library at librarything.com


Sheila at One Person's Journey Through Books hosts the What are you reading Monday.
So - - now that you all know I have a book buying problem...what am I actually reading?
Currently I am reading a few books because I couldn't make a choice this weekend. 
I am still reading:
 Changeless by Gail Carriger
and Falling, fly by Skler White
Tainted by Julie Kenner
The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan

I just finished reading: 
Run, Wolf: Nightfall Wolf Clans Book 1 
 Heartless by Anne Elisabeth Stengl

Next I am reading:
Addiction by Sandra Marshall

It's so bothersome to have too many good books to pick from. Are you enjoying Changeless? It's a book I've been curious about.
Happy Reading!

Stephanie said...

You are a great selection of books, many of which I want to read or have read. I hope you enjoy them and have a great reading week.

I'd love to know what you think of and Falling, Fly. I have it on my list to buy, but I keep getting mixed reviews.

Happy reading!

I LOVE garage sales and love finding book treasures. My habit will include buying books I have already read so I can have a spare to give out to friends.

We could have a support group :)

Have a wonderful week!

Yea for garage sales and yea for book fairs! They get my fair share of money every year!

Christina T said...

Wow, 100 books! That is amazing! That is awesome that you are giving some of them to students and the school media center.

I really liked Soulless so I am looking forward to Changeless. The Red Pyramid is also on my TBR list and I hope I get to read it soon. I've read nothing but postitive reviews.

What did you think of Heartless? I love the cover.

I hope you have a great week!

Whitney - I am loving Changeless! Did you read Soulless?

Beverly said...

Anna Marie - I will post when I am done with and Falling Fly. I have only read to page 73 so far. For what it's worth, I got it for my birthday in March and have started and finished many books since I started this one. I was liking it, but you know how you get those must reads and drop everything. Maybe you can check it out from the library or go sit at Barnes and Noble and read the first couple chapters. If you get it - let me know!

Beverly said...

Sheila - I think that blogging might just be our support group!

Beverly said...

Stephanie - Thanks for stopping - following you! Do you ever feel like we are all a bunch of stalkers? "What 'cha got in the bookbag lady?"

Beverly said...

Christina - I absolutely loved Heartless. I got it from the Early Reviewers at Librarything and had never heard of the author. I hadn't read anything about it either. It turned out to be great! Pick it up for certain! (I am hoping to have my review posted this week - look for it!)

Beverly said...

Cathy - thanks for stopping by - I went to your blog - love it! I added myself to your followers list! I too love mysteries.

Beverly said...

Julie P - Thanks for stopping by! I love your blog header! I see that you just read 1st to Die by Patterson. I have that on my TBR for a challenge. I gave the first three books in the series to my dad for his b-day and he is loving them and I love Patterson so I thought I would check these out too! What did you think? Are you all about the rest of them?

I've been struggling with which books to choose for awhile now, which is actually why I enjoy this meme. It forces me to go through my piles on a regular basis and pick 2-3 books for the week.

At least we have choices, right?

Here's mine:
