It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading is hosted by the fabulous Sheila over @ Book Journey. Come check out what everyone’s reading!

This weekend I went to the Media Theatre to see a production of Annie with Wanda Sykes as Miss Hannigan. The theatre had the classic character befitting its long history as a performing arts center. The cast was wonderful, the songs performed flawlessly and the scene changes were both minimal and creative. It was a great holiday treat! I hope your weekends were fun too. 🙂

Here’s what I’ve been enjoying in the world of literature:

Dust of 100 Dogs by A.S. King – My friend and new author Alissa Grosso introduced me to A.S. King’s novels just recently. I loved the premise of King’s story where a girl is cursed with the dust of 100 dogs and is forced to live one hundred dog lives before returning to the world as a human. With all her memories still in tact, she vows as a child to return to the scene where she was cursed and the love of her life was murdered. How’s that for a book opener?! I’m already wrapped up in both the story and the characters and can’t wait to find out what happens.

 

Ultimate Galactus Trilogy written by Warren Ellis – If you’re a fan of Marvel comics and the superheroes that band together to fight evil, you must read this graphic novel. The Ultimates, X-Men and Fantastic Four must unite to prevent Earth from being completely annihilated by a cosmic force. The illustrations are both classic and contemporary pulling you into its gripping tale.

 

The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan – I’m pretty sure I’m the last YA/MG reader to pick up this book. Despite all the great reviews its gotten, it’s still taken me a while to pick it up. I’m sure it won’t disappoint.

 

 

 

That’s all for me. What about you? What have you been reading?
