 Hunted by Kevin Hearne
Plus a whole stack of awesome books that I'm too lazy to get up and get so I can list- but they're awesome. 
(Thanks Theresa! Always feeding the addiction, you're such a book dealer!)

Still waiting on that one book from an order about a month ago. :( 
Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead
(I will get the picks up sometime this week, hopefully). 

What am I currently reading?
Well,, I kind of went off pile last week. I didn't finish The Passage last week and I didn't start Dragon's Path either. I did finish reading Diverse Energies and I finished up Carrier of the Mark by Liegh Fallon.  After much twisting of my arm, Darby Karchut convinced me to drop everything and read Hunted by Kevin Hearne. I will finish that tonight, though I am not sure if I will be emotionally ready to post the review this week. 

What will I be reading?
Well, I still have a couple more weeks of July so I will be putting another anthology on the pile. I am going to try to read After: Nineteen Stories of Apocalypse and Dystopia. I will also focus on catching up on the Dragon's Path read-a-long. And I will finish The Passage.  I figure if I aim to read more than 3, I will just go off-pile again so if by any chance I finish these three reading goals, I will pick a random book. 

What I wish I was reading:
Oh I have so many books I want to read and so many I want to re-read. Every week when I think that I have it under control, something pops up. For instance, I have been trying to get to Finn Finnegan  and Griffin's Storm for a long time. I was moving stuff around in order to get my office straightened out and discovered that I have both I Hunt Killers and The Game by Barry Lyga. Now, I've already read I Hunt Killers, but I remember counting down the days to get the sequel. I got it the week that it came out and it's still sitting unread. I also have my own copy of Amy Zoll's  Gladiatrix: The True Story of History's Unknown Woman Warrior. I reaaaaalllly want to read that. 

Reviews Posted:
Yep, I suck. I intended to type up my review of Diverse Energies and post it Thursday. I decided to do something a little different and discuss the reactions I had after each story. This is much more difficult than I thought that it would be. But I plan on finishing it and having that along with my review of Wolf Mark by Joseph Bruchac up Tuesday. Here's Hoping!

Well, that's all for me! Leave me a link or comment and tell me what your reading plans are!

Always Shine,
