Mailbox Monday & What Are You Reading

This is a weekly meme hosted by Knitting and Sundries. Join the fun and post what you got in your mailbox last week!

I had an empty mailbox this week. I'm on a self imposed book buying ban and unless it comes to me via mailbox, I won't be buying any books for a bit. I need to try and make a dent in my humongous TBR pile.








It's Monday What are you reading this week? Hosted by Sheila at One Person's Journey Through A World of Books. This is a meme to list the books completed last week, the books currently being read, and the books to be finished this week.

Books I finished last week:

Once in a Full Moon - Ellen Schreiber

Books I am reading this week:


Rise Again - Ben Tripp (I've put this one on hold for now)
Vixen - Jillian Larkin (B&N First Look Book Club)
Nightshade - Andrea Cremer (read along with J.Kaye)



Books to finish this week:

Nightshade - Andrea Cremer

I am trying not to buy any more books this year also but I am unsure if that is possible, good for you.

I have tried to curtail the book buying, too; I've done better this year than I did last year.

Hope you get through your TBRs.

Here's my Monday:

Rise Again was not for me, I thought it was but it turned out to be a different genre than I thought. Have a lovely week reading. My Monday: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/11/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-12.html

How cool you are reading Nightshade with J Kaye! That is one I want to read too.

leeswammes said...

I'm also trying not to buy any books. I have too many unread books and I refuse to start yet a new shelf with "new books".

Keep it up and make that dent in the TBR!

I really enjoyed Nightshade and look forward to your review. Have a great week.

Amanda said...

Nice to see someone else who hasn't read a bazillion books in a week!

Phew, I feel like I can take a bit of a breather here.

Have a great reading week.

Aleksandra said...

I haven't read any of those books, but I've heard Nightshade is good! Happy reading & have a great week!

I do really well with not buying books, my problem is the number of books I bring home from the library! I need to control myself so I can get through the ones I already have.

My Monday post is here

I am just stopping by from What are you reading? I hope you have a great reading week!! That is so good of you not to buy any more books this year. Even though I have a good 30 books that I haven't read that are new I could never trust myself to stop buying books. Hope you can keep it up!

I have banned myself from accepting any new self published books for the rest of the year. I need to gat caught up on my publisher commitments and work on finishing my challenges, this year flew by way too fast.

Enjoy your book.

Research and wishlist books make up the bulk of my reading last week. Here's what I'm reading this week.

Hope you are enjoying Nighshade. I've heard some great things of it. Sounds like a great read. And I hope you are enjoying Vixen and your discussions. :)

Hope you are having a great week.
