Happy Monday! I don’t know about you, but I jam-packed a bunch of stuff into my weekend-including work. I finally got to meet the newest addition to my huge family, baby niece Quinn (who has the most adorably pinchable cheeks and gorgeous hair), I taught my nephew some new card games, let the dog run wild and free in the Metropark (I have to get up pretty darned early to have the place to myself, but it is so worth it), and spent some time at my favorite coffee shop. I missed Downton Abbey, but I will get to that tonight. I also missed the Super Bowl, but that was mostly on purpose. I also got back on a zombie kick-one more week until the return of The Walking Dead! And since it’s Monday, I love a good list, let’s join in It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

I am still working on the same audiobooks from last week, Four to Score by Janet Evanovich and Bleeding Hearts by Ian Rankin. Both of these are adult book. I think my next YA audiobook will be I am the Messenger by Markus Zusak, but I probably won’t get to that until next week, so stay tuned.
Quickly Rereading for Book Club on Wednesday:
Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John
On my night stand:
I am Number Four by Pittacus Lore. I am showing the movie at the library next week!
This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers. I got this from Netgalley and finally had a chance to start it. I think this may be what sparked by return to the zombie books.
What I am really reading:
The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman. These are in our Adult Graphic Novel collection, but I am sure there teens out there loving this series as much as I am! At first I stayed away from the books because I didn’t want any spoilers for the TV series. However, I realized that the show does not really follow the book’s storyline very closely and I was needing a zombie fix so I picked up volumes 3 and 4 this weekend. I can’t wait to see how much of the story the show uses, because it is AWESOME. These books are such a distraction. I am torn between wanting to sit down and plow through them and rationing them. I am pretty sure I won’t be able to resist. Volume 5 is sitting at home just waiting…
My at work/breaks book: Actually, I am not sure. I think it will be this:
Then again, lunch may be the perfect time to leisurely flip through this:
The World of Downton Abbey by Jessica Fellowes
I will decide tomorrow. Today I must finish Endlessly by Kiersten White. I am looking forward to great reading this week. How about you?
