Week in Review 16th Jan 2011

16 Jan

Its time for my weekly round up of reading activities šŸ˜€

Memes

This Week i took part in four memes, Musing Mondays, Its Monday what are are Reading?, WWW Wednesdays and Booking Through Thursdays. I really enjoy taking part in these. I think for the moment i will limit it to these four as i dont want to be overwelmed by them.

Books Read

This week i have read two books, 31 Dream Street, Lisa Jewell, which i ended up really liking and also Falling for you – Jill Mansell, which i loved. I need to stop judging a book by its first few pages. I have started Isobels Wedding – Shelia O Flannagan, but i think this will be the only book i read this week because its quite long, 600 pages. I reviewed both books both here on my blog and also on the BCF.

Books Brought This Week

This week i have brought three books, none of which have arrived yet but all the books i have brought are for challenges or reading circles.

1 – The Ultimate Teen Guide Book – As im taking part in this challenge i thought i had better have this book!

2 – Flowers For Algernon – This book is the choice for the February Reading Circle on the BCF. I have wanted to get involved in this challenge for a while so this is the first time i will be doing it. It is also a book for the Rory Challenge and the Ultimate Teen Guide Book Challenge.

3 – Everything is Illuminated – There are several of us over on the BCF that are taking part in the Rory Challenge and have decided in february that we will all read Everything is illuminated. This obviously counts towards my Rory Challenge, but also the 1001 Books you must read Challenge.
