Up Next:
The Help by Kathryn Stockett! Finally! I requested this about two months ago from my library, and they just sent me a notice that it’s available to be picked up. Now if my night-shift self can just get out of bed early enough to actually go get it tomorrow….

Other News:
I got to go to not one but two author signings last week!  I was at Sarah Addison Allen‘s official book launch on Tuesday, and I got to see Ron Rash on Friday! I’ll be writing about both signings as soon as I make time for it. If either is going to be close to you, go see them!

What are you reading this week?

  1. Hi Jennifer! Thanks for stopping by my place. I'm finally getting to return the visits!
    I've been eying The Help. The others are new to me titles/authors.
    Ohh – I want to see your review of The Postmistress!
    Have a good weekend!

  2. I'm so jealous of both the author signings! How fun and such great authors to see. Now I'm off to read your review of Leviathan since I keep meaning to snag it from my kid so I can read it and see what steampunk is about.

  3. I really, really want to read the Help! I keep hearing really good things about it.

    Enjoy the rest of your week and happy reading!

  4. You've read some great books that are on my reading list 🙂
    And I've been to Patrick's blog & I agree he's really funny. His interview with Peter V Brett a few months ago was the funniest interview I've read ever. I guess we'll have to be patient for the 2nd book. I thought it will be out this summer, but I guess it's postponed for next year 😉
    Happy reading week!

  5. I like author signings. I have a signed copies of a few books-Lovely Bones, and one of my Ann Patchett books. I enjoyed Garden Spells very much and bought the Sugar Queen but haven't read it yet. I definitely will have to pick up the new book. You have some great reads.

  6. I am hoping that The Help is at the library tomorrow when I go. It has been sitting there calling to me the past couple weeks, but kept getting ignored for other books.

  7. You had a fabulous week! I just read your Leviathan review and now I'm definitely going to have to dive back into it. And how exciting! Two author signings in one week! I'm really interested to hear what you think about The Help, since I'm going to be reading it with my book club next month.

    Have a fabulous reading week!

  8. great pile last week! i'm hoping to read leviathan someday. have an awesome reading week this week 🙂

  9. What a great line up, I want or have read them all (except for She-Rain so guess I should check that one out LOL) Happy reading!

  10. I really want to read Tempest Rising & Leviathan – I'll have to go & read your reviews :o)

    I hope you enjoyed the author signings!

  11. I've got Ash on my TBR list but I have seen some quite mixed reviews about it. Hope you have a great reading week 🙂

  12. I enjoyed your reviews of Ash and Tempest Rising. I hope you like The Help. I am hoping to read that one eventually too.

  13. Wow, you got to go to two author signings? That's awesome! Looks like you read some great books last week! I loved Tempest Rising and the other two are on my wishlist so I need to go check out some reviews now. Enjoy your book!

  14. How exciting to be at the signings! I do hope you enjoy The Help s much, if not more than I did. I have SHe-rain on my TBR list. Off to read your reviews. Have a wonderful week reading.

  15. The Help was so compelling and true to the times.

    I keep seeing She-Rain around…now I'm very curious.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Love your header!

  16. Wow, you read Ash. Going to read your review next! 🙂
    Enjoy the books you picked for this week.

  17. I haven't read any of Nicole Peeler's stuff, but I hear so much about her on the blogs so I think I will give her a shot sometime soon.

    I have been wanting to go to a signing, but none of my fav authors have been to Boston recently..that I know of anyway

    Happy Reading!

  18. I wasn't a big fan of Tempest Rising so I'll be looking for what you thought of it! And I love author events! I don't have one again until April 1st. 🙂

  19. I really want to read She-Rain! I'll be waiting for your review. I started The Help two weeks ago, but I just couldn't get into it. I'll try again this summer. Happy reading! (btw, love your new header pic!)

  20. So, not to sound like I'm following the crowd or anything, but Leviathan IS one of the books on my future TBR list.

    on a side note, is the picture in your header from the Biltmore? The bridge looks just like the Biltmore bridge.

  21. i so want to read she rain but not yet. *LOL* happy reading jennifer.

    p/s:never go for author signings.must be pretty exciting. =)

  22. Haven't been to too many book signings but do love them. Really need to read Leviathan.

    have a great week.

  23. Two author signings in one week! I've never been to a single author signing, so I'm sure you can understand why I'm a tad jealous. =)

    I've been hearing good things about The Help. Hope you enjoy it.

  24. Love author signings – how fun! You read some good books this week – I would love to read Ash.

    Have a great week!
