Mailbox Monday & What Are You Reading

Mailbox Monday was originally hosted by Marcia at the Printed page but now it is a traveling meme. This month it is hosted by Amused by Books.

I received a couple of books this week:








































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 in the last week:

The Iron Knight - Julie Kagawa

Books I am reading this week:

Romeo & Juliet - William Shakespeare (I will be reading this in doses. I have yet to read a book by Shakespeare and I will prevail and get one read lol )

Will be starting another book, I just can't decided yet which one.


Books to finish this week:

Something just not sure which one yet lol

Romeo and Juliet is not my favorite Shakespeare play but it is the first one I read and very accessible unlike some of his others like the history plays. I hope you like it!

I can't wait to read The Future of Us. I was a teen in 96 so it will be a nice flashback in a way.

I also want to read The Iron Knight and Want to Go Private. I've got The Iron Knight on my Kindle but haven't started it yet. I have mixed feelings about that series but I liked The Iron Queen so I am hopeful...

Have a great week!

The future of Us looks really good! Good luck with Romeo and Juliet... never read it :)

Wow, I thought everyone had to read Shakespear in high school. R&J is easy to understand; unfortunately it doesn't have a happy ending.

I received Hades as well. I really want to read The Future of Us, I hope you love both of them!

I hope you like Romeo and Juliet! I've always loved it, but Midsummer's Night Dream is my favorite Shakespeare play.

I can't wait to see what you thought of The Iron Knight. I recently read The Iron King and have books 2 and 3 ready to go!!

I really enjoyed Romeo and Juliet - hope you do too. It's a classic in the truest sense.

The Future of Us looks like a great book.

Not a big fan of R&J. I'm more of an Othello and Richard III fan...they have better villains ;)

Here are my Monday Memes

The Future of Us looks like it will be interesting. Good luck with Romeo and Juliet.

I think I need to read Halo. Both covers are so beautiful!

Romeo and Juliet isn't my fav. either. My favorite tragedy is Hamlet. But my all time favorite of the Bard's plays is Much Ado About Nothing.

Three-quarters of what I read this week was in the form of children's picture books. Please come see what they were.

Interesting cover on Hades. I hope you enjoyed Kagawa's book. I've got that one on the Nook and just haven't gotten around to it yet. Have a great week and enjoy your new books!

Hades looks so good!

A Midsummer's Night Dream is the best Shakespeare play in my opinion. I love it!
