Monday Beginnings (19)

Okay, so it is Monday again! Now we are past the holidays and trying to get back to the normal schedule of work, reading, blogging, exercising, and many other things that happen in our everyday lives.

I once again want to thank you all for following as now I have 60 followers! You guys are all the BEST! I have been pondering on what to do as a show of my gratitude. I really enjoyed the book Iron Hunt by Marjorie M. Liu, so I was thinking of doing a contest for it to where will ship to or would you like a $10 gift card for Also, Marjorie M. Liu has a new novella that just came out, Inked - there are 4 stories in this book along with Marjorie's that has the presence of Maxine Kiss and the boys - so thought it would be a way to celebrate the new book. (which I did pick up over the weekend and will be reading here this month or next.)

Okay, so I am really starting to babble on tonight. I am having a really good day. I feel rested after having a long weekend and was happy to get back to work today. I did get reading done on lunch hour and was reading tonight before I got on here. I am currently reading Three Days to Dead by Kelly Meding, and I have to say I AM LOVING IT! I just stopped on page 115 out of 405. I am hoping with the way today started that I will be done with this book by the end of the week. This is the way I like Mondays to go.

I have added 4 books to my list of to reads. Not many but I have SUCH a list to get through and there are so many awesome new books coming out. I am going to be so stuck on the shelf here for a while. lol.

I did get done with Scorched here over the past weekend. My review is just a scroll down if you would like to check it out. (please feel free to!)

Okay, I could probably keep going on and on here tonight but I must put a stop to my ramblings.

Please let me know how your Monday is going... How are you faring with your reading in the beginning of this week?

Congratulations on having 60 followers! :D

I just pulled Three Days to Dead off my TBR pile and am going to start it tomorrow. Looks so good that I couldn't wait any longer!

Have a great week!

Hip Hip Hooray on your followers! Just don't forget those who have been around since the start :-)

This has actually been a good reading week for me. I finished Her Royal Spyness and The Big Four. Getting ready to finish The Lost Symbol and starting The Dreyfuss Affair.

Happy New Year to you again and congrats on your followers!

Alexia - I think you are REALLY going to enjoy Three Days to Dead. I have been reading it and CANNOT put it down. I love it. So, okay, I am only 125 pages into it - but it is really good! Thank you for stopping by and for the congrats.

Ryan - Thank you! And I could never forget those how have been here since day one. You are the best, of the best followers! ;) You really are having a fabulous reading week. I need me one of those weeks. :) I really am curious to see your thoughts on The Lost Symbol.

Michelle - I hope you really enjoy your movie. You have to post a review of the book then one of the movie and compare the two too. I am always curious how a movie fares against its book. I will have to go over to twitter and check it out. Thanks for the congrats.

Petty Witter - Thanks for the congrats and following.

Been doing great. I'm reading "Kissing Sin" by Keri Arthur and "According to Jane" to continue my altered Jane Austen type of books. :)

Congrats and have a great week!

I'm reading a book that I'm sort of enjoying, but... I don't know what it is. I'm having a hard time finding books that I really like these days.

Melissa (My words and pages) said...

Melissa - You are going great on altered Jane Austen books. Sounds like you have been having a great reading week. Thanks for the congrats. Have a great week.

La Coccinella - Sounds like its a rough reading time. I hate when that happens. I have gone through stages it seems the books just don't seem to work. I hope it getts better for you.
