It's been ages since I read any Andrew Klavan, and I'm not sure why. I need to pick up some of his new stuff. I really thought I had some Updike on my list, but I don't. I really need to read his work! I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on Shiver.

Enjoy your books!

This looks like a great reading line-up. I really enjoyed Shiver!

I've heard good and bad things about Wolf Hall. I'm interested to hear what you think about it.

Have a great week of reading.

I could have sworn that my husband owned ever single one of Michael Crichton's books, but I've never heard of this one. I may have to get him a copy for this birthday this year.

Happy reading this week!

I have a copy of Wolf Hall at home... what I've read I've loved, but feel that to finish it I'd have to give it my undivided attention for at least a month (and probably go into weight training).

I've heard really good things about Pirate Latitudes and am tempted to pick it up. I wonder if its enough of a departure from his normal oevre to keep the attention of a non-fan like myself?

Happy Monday!

I haven't thought about (let alone read) any Baby-Sitters Club books in ages. Seeing it listed there ...wow. Memories. =)

And shiver was great. Glad to see you enjoyed it too.

Happy Reading!

I just loved SHIVER!

Sharon said...

Wow! You have quite a variety of books here. I am interested in Wolf Hall so will be glad to see what you think. I haven't read Twilight but I did read Shiver. Glad you enjoyed it. I really want to read Pirate Latitudes. Happy reading!

I loved Shiver, will go read your review after this comment. I also have to read Wolf Hall and I expect it will take me a while. Have a great reading week!

Elizabeth said...

Are you "still" reading Wolf Hall because you don't like it or it's slow? I have it on my TBR and eagerly await your opinions.

Looks like you had a great reading week! The World According to Mr. Rogers looks like it would be a fun read :)

Here's what I'm reading.

Aths said...

Wow! You definitely got a lot of reading done! I'm curious about how you find Wolf Hall and Pirate Latitudes.

I was told by a person at work that I should read The Bonfire of the Vanities. I look forward to seeing what you think of the read.

Hope you have had a great reading week.
