Sorry for the lack of posts this week. I'm not sure what the heck happened, but hopefully I'll be more in the mood to blog next week! At least I've been writing again. :)

The Reckoning (Darkest Powers, Book 3) by Kelley Armstrong - gotta finish this series...
Ouran High School Host Club Vol. 13 - my favorite manga! And it's getting quite good and adorable with the love triangle... *toes tingle in glee*
And now let me give you a tiny status update...which may or may not be a weekly thing, I haven't decided, but doing this helps me keep track of myself, which is a good thing right about now.
What I'm in the Middle of Reading:
The Passage by Justin Cronin - The first part was absolutely incredible. It's not what I expected--but it might've been even better. Now there's an abrupt change in setting and characters and I'm not sure how I feel about that. Hopefully it doesn't drag the story down for me.
Going Bovine by Libba Bray - I just started because several people mentioned this week that I should read it, and soon. Libba's a fantastic writer; I'm not sure how I feel about Cameron yet. I have very low tolerance for apathy: I've dealt with too many of these people in my life.
Nomansland by Lesley Hauge - This one is going slowly for me, which is sad, because I expected a lot more. I dunno, something just feels...off? I'll try to express my thoughts more clearly in a review soon.
City of Ashes (Mortal Instruments, Book 2) by Cassandra Clare - I didn't intend to reread this series before finally reading Clockwork Angel, but I guess that's what I'm doing right now! I like remember how good it is. It makes me smile. :)
Nightshade by Andrea Cremer - I don't know why it's taking me so long to read this. I'm about a third of the way through, and finally I'm beginning to better connect with the characters and learn some necessary backstory.
What I'm Going to Read This Week (Tentatively, Hopefully):
1 MMPB - Rosemary and Rue (October Daye, Book 1) by Seanan McGuire
1 Upcoming Review Book - 13 to Life by Shannon Delany
1 Already Released Review Book - Insatiable by Meg Cabot
1 Library Book - Keep Sweet by Michele Greene
1 BEA Book - ??? Maybe Clockwork Angel if I can't resist?
...and, of course, try to finish as many of my currently-reading books as possible.
Do you guys have any tentative reading plans for this week? Or are you an utter "pantser" when it comes to deciding which book to read next? I definitely go with my mood, but it's pretty soothing for me to have some vague plan-y sort of thing. :)
