It's Monday! What are you reading?!

Linking up with Jenn & Kellee for this weekly update!

Last week I read:
and

I had never read any of Siobhan Vivian's books and now plan on reading more by her! 
(Not That Kind of Girl was recommended on Twitter this week, so I'll be checking into that one!)

I heard that other Hoosiers had found copies of Insurgent out in the wild at Meijer's before the release date (which is tomorrow: 5/1/12). I stopped by on Saturday and scoured the shelves.  Just when I thought I had been skunked, I saw it! I immediately grabbed a copy and then of course, took a picture to tweet and send to other Insurgent fans.  I began reading it Saturday and after a busy Sunday, stayed up late to finish it.  It was so worth it but now I'm DYING for the next book. Boo.  It will be a while!  The look on the student's face this morning who is #1 on the holds list was priceless as I handed her my copy.  "It's not even out yet!" she squealed.  I told her the story and entrusted her with my personal copy.  I'm sure it will be back in my hands within a few days after being read and loved a second time.  :)  

This week I'm reading:

I'm interested in reading this one because I've been told people LOVED it and then told by others that they HATED it. Definitely seems to inspire strong feelings!

  1. That is so cool that you 1. got a copy of Insurgent and 2. passed your personal copy to a patron. I read The List last week too! Here is my plan for the week http://wp.me/pzUn5-Xh

  2. That's an interesting story about finding Insurgent. I've unwittingly been in that situation before but a bookstore wouldn't sell me the book, since the barcode wasn't yet able to scan and release the book!

    Glad to hear that you took the book home and enjoyed it. Happy reading this week. :)

  3. I don't think workers at Meijer had a clue the book had been stocked early. I felt a little bad, but not bad enough to NOT buy a copy.

    Thanks for your comments!

  5. I waited on Divergent until it was out in paperback. (still need to get it, though). I'm buried in my TBR pile!
