  1. I'm considering getting Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children I've seen it one a couple blogs.

  2. I'm trying to read the host right now as well, though I'm not doing a very good job. I just keep shoving it to the side. Everyone tells me it gets really good, but you just have to sort of plow through the beginning.

    Anyway, I hope you enjoy everything you have planned to read!

    My Monday Post 🙂

  3. I haven't read The Host but I have been seeing previews for the film to be released soon and the storyline looks good. I look forward to reading your thoughts on Doctor Zhivago. I have never tackled this one but I love a classic! Have a great week.
    Happy Reading,

  4. I've had The Host waiting patiently (gathering dust) for me for a couple of years. Hope you're enjoying it.
    Have a great week and happy reading 🙂

  5. Reading the No 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series is like visiting old friends. I can't wait for the next one later this year. Usually he releases it by now but it seems I have to wait!

  6. I really enjoyed the host when I read it, I'm pretty excited about the movie. Hope you enjoy all your picks =]

    Here is my list =]

  7. What a lofty undertaking Doctor Zhivago must be, not sure I could get through that one! I haven't read Mary Kay Andrews but I'd like to and the cover of the Orchid Affair is just lovely, makes me want to read it! Here's my reading list for the week…

  8. I loved The Host. Thought it was so much better than Twilight. I hope you'll enjoy it as well!

    Take a look at what I'm reading this week.

  9. I remember Doctor Zhivago. My mum has it on her bookshelves. It is one of the few books she never let me touch.

    Have a great week!

  10. How are you liking The Host? It's the only Stephanie Meyer book I've read and I vaguely recall liking it, but it's been so long I can't remember much else. I've been considering re-reading it, but I have so many other books to read.

  11. I love Mary Kay Andrews books…and enjoyed Summer Rental. Hope you have a great week!


  12. Wow look at your busy week! I have seen the Miss Peregrine's many times over, but haven't gathered the strength to track it down. Hope you enjoy your book this week!
    Here is my Bookish Memes post.

    Have a great week!

  13. I loved Miss Peregrine's. I took a big break from YA (I still only pick them up occasionally) and I was pleasantly surprised with this one. I also liked Dr Zhivago and the Host. Have a great week.

  14. I enjoyed the No 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series. Hope you find it fun, too. I love that it's in a country that I don't know much, but it doesn't alienate the reader at all.

    Have a good week!

  15. I didn't like Miss Peregrine's but I hope it works for you. Happy reading!
