Manic Monday Recaps (Week 6/28/10)

Hope you all had a lovely weekend. Mine always go too fast and this one especially flew by since I did nothing all weekend long but stay home and clean. Didn't get much reading time either. But I did have a fab time on Friday with my friends, Isalys and Vanessa, you guys know them as Book♥Soulmates. We were able to meet Alyson Noel... eek! Still excited over that. She was such an amazing person. I loved her! More to come on that later in the week. Plus we have to share all our seriously fabulous pictures. With that said,

Here's what I plan on reading this week:

Last week I read the following:
- Undead and Unwelcome by MaryJanice Davidson
- Intertwined by Gena Showalter
- Numbers by Rachel Ward
- The Poison Diaries by Maryrose Wood and The Duchess of Northumberland
- Soulstice by Simon Holt

I reviewed the following:
- Far From You by Lisa Schroeder [review]
- The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephenie Meyer [review]
** sorry it was a busy week for me.

And there you have it. What are you guys reading this week?

These all look awesome! I've been wanting to read Looking for Alaska for the longest.

It looks like you've got some great reads coming up! I love some of Brashares other books and I also own Looking For Alaska. Happy reading!

Michele at Reader's Respite said...

I'm interested in what you think about Looking for Alaska....there is a scene in there (you'll know it when you get to it, trust me) that had me laughing so hard tears were literally running down my face. Husband-unit asked what I was laughing about and I read the entire 3 or 4 page scene out loud to him and he was just rolling on the floor.

Or maybe we were just tired. ?

And I've never gotten over the trauma from finding out Go Ask Alice wasn't real. Major, major trauma there.

Well good to know you had a good time with your friends.
Great books up ahead for you, enjoy.

@Juju - I actually won 7 Tears through a giveaway on your site... I can't wait to read it since I know you really liked it. :)

@Michele - OMG, I finished Alaska last night and I already know the part you are talking about. That book was a roller coaster for me, there were parts where I laughed till I cried, and then there were parts where I literally cried. I loved this book. As for Go Ask Alice - I saw some reviews on how it's a work of fiction and the first thing I did was check the inside cover which clearly states that this is a work of fiction and was wondering what people were talking about. I guess when it first came out it was advertised as a non-fiction account... hmmm. Yea, I could see where I would be affected by the author confessing to it all being made-up.
