  1. Shiver - Maggie Stiefvater

What I'm reading now:
What I'll be reading next:

I;m not sure how much reading I'll have time for this week as I'm going to be busy getting ready to go on holiday next Saturday.  We're going to Devon to spend the week fishing - well Ant will be fishing & I'm planning on doing a lot of reading and relaxing LOL.  I'll just see how this week goes & try to get as much reading as I can done before we go :o)  It's actually my birthday while we're away so I'm planning on holding a giveaway soon - if I have time I'll try to get it posted before we go but otherwise I'll have to start it a little late.

Challenge updates:

Paranormal Reading Challenge - Read 50/50 - COMPLETE
Speculative Fiction Reading Challenge - Read 24/24 - COMPLETE

Contests won:

I was really excited to win a copy of Personal Demon by Kelley Armstrong from Brook at Brooke Reviews as part of her Blogiversary giveaway.  I really need to catch up on this series so I'm ready to read Personal Demon when it arrives!

What are you reading?

  9. Read Hex Hall last week too and enjoyed it. It was just lighthearted enough that it brought me out of the funk I was in after reading The Forest of Hands and Teeth.

    Have a great week.

  12. First of all I love your header pic, wish I could get a picture of one of my cats doing that, they do most of their reading(knocking books off the shelf)when I am asleep.

    After all this comments I think I need to look in this book Shiver.

    Enjoy your vacation!!
