It's Monday, 10/10/11, and I'm reading...

It's Monday and I'm reading:
Everybody Sees the Ants by A.S. King--- I'm not very far but I do know that this book has a fantastic opening.  I'm reading this as a potential Mock Printz book.

I recently finished:
Chime by Franny Billingsley---The first part of the book was confusing with its mixture of realism and fantasy but the conclusion was very satisfying.  In fact, I reread it immediately after finishing the book so I could savor it a bit longer.

I am listening to:
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne Valente. It is a fun, odd tale that reminds me a bit of The Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland. 

What are you reading?


  1. The Girl Who... is on my wishlist. I guess it was a pretty normal week of reading for me. Please come see what I've read.

  2. Everybody sees ants, that's interesting. :) Title is for sure!

    My Monday! Have a great week!

  3. These are all new to me. I'll have to check them out.

  4. I look forward to seeing what you think of Everybody Sees the Ants. I've just started Ready Player One

  5. Thanks for visiting my blog, I did return your comment on my blog but just in case you didn't pop back, our little visitor was a possum lol.
    Chime caught my eye, the fact that you re-read it straight away made me even more curious.

    Have a great week and happy reading :)

  6. I haven't heard of any of these books - will have to look into them to see if they are my types of books.

    Stop by my It's Monday post if you get a chance.

  7. I have heard a lot of good things about Chime. Maybe one day I will be able to read it. :)
