Dec 10 - Monday Leapin' Lords!

I had to look it up:

On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...

12 Drummers Drumming
11 Pipers Piping
10 Lords-a-Leaping
Ladies Dancing
Gold Rings
Colly Birds
French Hens[4]
Turtle Doves
And a Partridge in a Pear Tree.

From ER Heroldson last year... some hilarious art.

3It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

Thx Sheila @ Book Journey for hosting!!

I finished two of my long lingerin' books this week. PHEW!!  Lol. Now I just gotta write some reviews!  My review of Starflower will go up tomorra. I can't wait. Such a unique book!! I also finished The Escape of Princess Madeline. :-D  Very fun in a skippy sort of way!

Evie's Knight Book Tour

This leaves me mid-Evie's Knight, which I'm enjoying on my Nook at night. The writing is delicious and I've come to tears once already. *sigh* But I'm planning a Tour in January, so I'm putting lots of thought into my reading and not rushing through. Oh yea... this tour is going to be awesome.  If you've ever wondered what touring with me would be like *waggles eyebrows*... or been interested in this book... the tour is technically "full", but I'll get ya in. Shoot me an email when you sign up, though, to make sure I catch yer entry.

Changeless (Parasol Protectorate, #2)In my purse, I've stashed Changeless for reading when I'm out-n-about. I started this book months ago and got sidetracked. But all that chatter about posting my review of Soulless and it's Manga got me hankerin' after some more Parasol Protectorate. There is nothin' like Alexia's attitude. Lol. She is one of a kind... and I just got to the part where she got a new parasol... it's crazy!!

The Iron Queen (The Iron Fey, #3)The Iron Queen... how long have you been on my TBR shelf?!?!  Lol... too long!!!!  Vale, who entertains me regularly with awesome emails, has been reading this series and caught up to as far as I got. I'm excited to read this one with her. Kagawa's writing is delightful!

SplinteredI've been writing, rather than reading, and crafting, too. But I'm waiting, see, for Splintered to arrive in my mailbox. Krazy Book Lady has this cool read-n-pass-on thing going with her own copy of this fun-lookin' book. I gotta read it as soon as it arrives, so I'm trying not to get tooooooo into another book that I can't put down. And watching my mail box.

Have you ever participated in one of these? It's kind of exciting and kind of, like, what if I'm crazy-busy all of a sudden?!  I'm sure everything will work out, but I can't help watching for the mailman DAILY. It's possible I have other books coming, too. Maybe. *drums fingers* Trying to be patient. Hard to do.


  1. I've got a few books sitting on my shevles that have been there too long! Have a great week of reading.

  2. I hope you enjoy Splintered when it comes

    Wishing you a wonderful reading week

  3. I'm looking forward to your review of Starflower - I loved Heartless :)

    And you gotta love Alexia & her parasols & her whole hilarious "family" :)

    And I hope you'll get Splintered soon & that you'll love it :) I really want to read it!

    And yeah, I have done that before, waiting for the mailman to deliver a particular book I've been dying to read :)

  4. In the New Year, I hope to clear off more books from my shelves....and gearing up for that, I'm passing on many new reviews that come my way. It's not fun to feel overwhelmed!

    The pass 'n' read thing looks good; a way to read something without adding to the shelves. I've even returned to the library on some books, in order to avoid having my shelves topple.

    I love your little Christmas art...and the Lords Leaping.

    Enjoy your week. Here's MY MONDAY MEMES POST

  5. Erk, YES! Right now, I'm trying to be so good and get through some of the "year's best" that I haven't read yet because, you know, it's sort of important for end-of-year lists to have actually read the best stuff! But the mailman and Netgalley give me shiny ARCs that stare at me! Combined with the review books that are on's a girl to read all that at once? *sigh*

  6. I haven't done read-n-pass on thing, but I know that feeling from requesting books at the library. Sometimes when I know a really good book is coming, it's hard to know what to read in the meantime because I know I'm going to drop it like a hot potato as soon as that book comes home from the library.
