"Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars, points of light and reason. ...And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason, for anything."

What are you reading (24)?


It's Monday! What are you reading this week? is a weekly event now hosted by One Persons Journey Through a World Of Books. It's helpful way to take a look at what you have read and what you want to read!

It's the first Monday of the new year and I'm looking forward to a happy and wonderful 2011.  This was a busy week for me in blogland.  I signed up to participate in way to many challenges that I'm super excited about.  I have all my books picked out and I've spent the last two days organizing my stacks and reading.  I've already finished two books here in 2011 and I'm half way through the third.  I also wrote my 2010 wrap up post, where I also listed my top five reads of the year.

I do have a horrible head cold that is keeping me down some.  It doesn't help that I still can't take any medicine so I'm just having to wait it out until it goes away.  I'm going to try and not let that get me down though :)

As for reading and reviews, I reviewed Meg Cabots Size 12 Is Not Fat here.  It was my final read in 2010. 

This week I finished both Sarah, Plain and Tall and Number the Stars.  These reviews can be found here and here.


As for this week, I'm looking forward to finishing Darkly Dreaming Dexter.  I'm a little more than a 100 pages into this and very much enjoy it.  Hubby watches this TV show religiously but I've always found it to be a bit too disturbing for me.  I seem to be enjoying the books much more.


I would also like to read and finish Murder on the Menu by Miranda Bliss.  This is the second book in the Cooking Class Mystery series.  I really enjoyed the first in the series and hope that this one is equally entertaining.


Finally, I'd like to read Inkheart by Cornelia Funke.  I've had this one sitting on the shelves for a quite a while and I've heard really good things about it.  Plus, I've been waiting to see the movie until after I finish the book.

So that's my week.  I'm keeping it small because I have year end close at work until Wednesday which will probably leave me pretty exhausted.

So what are your reading plans for the week?

I think I read Inkheart a while ago. It was ok.

Here is my list

My husband and I have just started watching Dexter Season 1 via Netflix and we really like it so far. I can't help but wonder what that says about us, because it is a pretty messed-up show! Inkheart was pretty good, but Sarah Plain and Tall is an old favorite. Enjoy your week!

I love Dexter the series, have never read any of the books. I should try them. I read the first Miranda Bliss but I didn't know she had a second one out. I will add that to my list

I've had the first few Dexter books for awhile, but haven't read them yet. I love the TV show, and watch it every week, though. I'll get to the books eventually!

I also really like the movie Inkheart, it's cute and I didn't realize it was based on a book! Can't wait to read your review :)

I've wanted to tackle Inkheart for awhile, but I think the next Juv Fiction series I'm going to start is The Mysterious Benedict Society.

Have a great reading week!

Never seen Dexter, and the book looks a bit disturbing too. Glad you are enjoying it. Hope the cold moves on soon and you are back to feeling in tip top form. Have a great week and Happy New Year!
