What I've Been Reading.

I'm going to ignore the three week silence by only saying that I've been busy with school and overwhelmed by everything else going on in my life. I'll talk more about that on Sunday.

Anyway, I thought that the best way to jump back in was to tell you that yes, I have been reading. I've been on a big YA kick, since that seems to be the only thing that calms me down and can keep my attention. I do have plans to finish my list of classics, but it will probably be a much slower process.

So, without dragging this out, here is a list of all the titles I have read since the beginning of September:
  1. The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling
  2. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling
  3. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling
  4. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling
  5. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
  6. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling
  7. The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart
  8. The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey by Trenton Lee Stewart
  9. The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner's Dilemma by Trenton Lee Stewart
  10. The Crucible by Arthur Miller (read with my sophomores)
  11. Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
  12. The Complete Maus by Art Spiegelman
  13. If I Stay by Gayle Forman
  14. Where She Went by Gayle Forman
  15. The Hunters by John Flanagan
So yep. I've been busy reading in some spare moments-although, the last 5 books were all read in the last 2 weeks. It seems a bit overwhelming to try and back up to write big posts over each of those titles, but I might just try. :)

So what have you been reading recently?


  1. I read and really enjoyed If I Stay, but haven't gotten to Where She Went Yet...What did you think of the second book? Both books are really popular with my high school students...

  2. Hope all is going ok and that you're enjoying your reading. It looks like you've been doing a great job even though you're distracted!

  3. I've been reading a lot of children's and YA lately, too. I looove the Mysterious Benedict Society books.

  4. It's good to see you back! I'm glad to hear you've been reading what you wanted to read at the time you wanted to read it. We tend to forget that comfort is one of the incentives of reading, so it's wonderful when we come across the perfect book to remind us of that.

  5. Wow that is quite the list!! And yep, sometimes the best way to go is to say "you know what, I've been busy, so here I am now :p" I do it all the time on my blog now, lol

  6. wow, you are into series! here is my October wrap-up, with at the bottom what I am up to now and until the end of the year: http://wordsandpeace.com/2012/11/02/october-2012-wrap-up/
    And there's also a question for you about recommendations, if you have a mn. Thanks
