From the Library:



Well.....half price was having a really good sale, so I kind of put my bookshelf challenge on pause for the day. And restarted it as soon as I walked out the door. I have also increased my challenge from 10 to 20 now. Picks will be up later this week (a couple are crying to be read so I'm avoiding that stack, lol). 
I am still waiting on a used book from an order from the beginning of June. Waiting so long, I almost forgot about it. Grrrr...

What I'm Currently Reading:
Okay, so this week was the last week of classes, it was also the week of the fourth of July and my birthday. So needless to say, I wasn't so productive on the reading front. Both of the books that I planned on reading are still unfinished. (Though I will be finishing up Diverse Energies tonight!) So, I am currently reading The Passage by Justin Cronin (it's good but it's long, so glad I'm reading the print copy.)  The group read for The Dragon's Path has started, so I will be reading that as well. 

What I will be reading:
I don't know which anthology I will be reading next. I am still debating but it will either be Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King or The Moo by Adriena Dame. I will also attempt to read Griffin's Storm by Darby Karchut, The Grimm Company and/or Death's Acre by Dr. Bill Bass and Jon Jefferson. (I am being cautiously optimistic that I will finish The Passage tomorrow. (Or soon :) )

What I wish I was reading right now:
There are still a lot of books that I would love to be reading right now, and that is not to say that I am not enjoying the books that I am currently reading. Because, boy am I! But if I had to pick just one title that I wish I could put on the pile this week but am resisting it would be Hunted by Kevin Hearne. Really, who wouldn't want more Atticus and Oberon?  Plus, there is the stack of recently purchased books that I am avoiding.......

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

Always Shine,
