Manic Monday: Week of October 17

We all know that Mondays are typically pretty manic for us all.  Honestly, who in the world likes Mondays?!  So here's an attempt for me to organize my thoughts for the week.  Here you'll find what I'm reading, what I will picking up next, different posts that you can expect in the upcoming week, and a recap of the posts from last week!  And anything else I see fit, of course :]

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
I'm reading it, but rather than posting my thoughts here, I'll redirect you to the first post about my progress in the read-a-long.  Remember, if you're interested, there's still time to sign up and participate!

The Demon's Apprentice by Ben Reeder.
As I sit typing this, I haven't gotten very far in this book.  Not because its not interesting, but from lack of time.  It seems like its going to be interesting though.  There's all kinds of talk about magic and stealing bits of people's souls and the like.  So far, we've been immediately drawn into the action, so i'm interested to see where Reeder is going to take me.


What will I be picking up next?
Not a whole lot has changed since last week for the things I'll be picking up next.  I finished Baby Teeth last week.  I want to read Mile 81 by Stephen King and Frankenstein by Mary Shelley this month, so after I finish The Demon's Apprentice, I'm going to get those two done.  Then I want to at least get one or 2 Agatha Christie read before I start on the last 2 Patterson books I have.


What can you expect this week?
++   Tuesday: NRT this week will be featuring the newest in the Beautiful Creatures series and the upcoming release from Florence + the Machine.
