The Week to Come: 03FEB13

What? It's already the second month of 2013? How did that happen? Although I didn't read as much as I would have liked in January, I did read some great books with an average rating of 4 stars on 24 books. I am slightly behind where I want to be (I need to read 25 books a month to reach my goal of 300 this year). I have posted the list at 2013 Reading but want to highlight my favorites here:

-Dancing in the Dark by Robyn Bavati
-Cinders and Sapphires by Lelia Rasheed
-Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
-Prince Puggly of Spud and the Kingdom of Spiff by Robert Paul Weston (review to come)

For me personally, I got to visit the Reagan Presidential Library this weekend, which was a HUGE thrill. My family and I are big presidential nerds and we've already visited the Nixon and Kennedy libraries. We are thrilled to add another one to the list.

I am also aware that the Super Bowl is happening today (I am rooting for the 49ers) but I don't care that much. I want to check out Beyonce and then focus on reading and blogging since I have a busy week to come.

As for THE WEEK TO COME, I have reviews of:

The Assassin's Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke

Hysteria by Megan Miranda

the highly anticipated sequel to The Name of the Star, The Madness Underneath by Maureen Johnson

Prince Puggly of Spud and the Kingdom of Spiff by Robert Paul Weston

Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys (I actually read this in 2013 and it was one of my favorite reads-I can't wait to share about this with you!)

And Saturday ends with Getting Over Mr. Right by Chrissie Manby.

What reading are you up to? 


  1. Those sound like great reads for the month of January; I enjoyed Scarlet too. How cool that you got to visit the Reagan library. I wish my sister and I could go to places like that but we're pretty isolated here on Maui : (

    Happy reading for February! And thanks for stopping by our blog!

  2. I love libraries but have never been to any presidential library!

    Curious to read Madness Underneath -- I am just reviewing Name of the Star on audio -- I forgot a lot from the first time around.

  3. Sounds like you have some great posts to come this week. I was just trying to schedule a few for the beginning of this week, b/c I had nothing last week.

    I've never been to a presidential library, but I think it would be very interesting!

  4. I am very excited about Scarlet and plan to buy it on Tuesday and hopefully read it this week. I also look forward to finding out your thoughts on Hysteria.

    I love visiting public libraries in my travels but have never been to a Presidential library.

  5. I love the Reagan Library! I'm glad you got a chance to go. Looking forward to your review of the new Maureen Johnson, too--I haven't had a chance to read the first one yet, but I hear amazing things. :)

  6. Sounds like a fabulous week coming up! I haven't ever been to a presidential library but it does seem like it would be thrilling, glad you had a good time :)
