What is on the reading agenda this week

This weekly meme is hosted by Sheila at One Person's Journey.
I just wanted a personalized graphic so I made this photo to post for this meme each week.

Books I completed the past week are:
1. Fireworks Over Taccoa by Jeffrey Stepakoff
2. Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood by Marjane Satrapi

Books I am currently working on:

1. Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict (pg. 219 of 289) (for challenges)
I am enjoying this one very much, although Confessions was better (at this point, mind you.)

2. Maximum Ride: The Final Warning (Max Ride Series #4) by James Patterson (pg. 51 of 256) (for challenges)

3. She's So Dead to Us by Kieran Scott (pg. 33 of 275) (ARC)

  1. I'll be watching for your review of She's So Dead to Us.

  2. I really enjoyed both Rude Awakenings and She's So Dead - both very fun summer books!

  3. You've got plenty of books going on right now!! I enjoyed the first Austen book more too!

  4. You've got a lot going on! Wow! I'll be especially watching for your thoughts on Uglies, Eat, Pray Love, and Before I Fall. Happy reading!

    Here's my Monday post:

  5. Enjoy Before I Fall - I really did :) Have an awesome week!

  6. I have had Before I Fall on my agenda for awhile and still have not gotten to it, and I have heard good things about that Jane Austen series. I want to check it out. I really like She's So Dead to Us, so I am excited to see what you think.

  7. I sooo loved Persepolis! My stepdaughter is beginning to show some inkling of interest in graphic novels, and I think she'd like these best.

  8. Looks like you have lots of great books coming up! I really liked Uglies and am one of the few who still needs to read Before I Fall. Happy reading!

  9. I saw the preview for the Eat Pray Love movie and it looks fantastic!

  10. You and I are on the same wavelength, lately -- I just read Persepolis too. I can't wait to see what you thought!

  11. I have Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict on audio to listen to in the car when I finish up The Magicians. I'm hoping to enjoy it.
