It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? is now hosted by Sheila at One Person’s Journey Through A World of Books.
Ya’ll I feel like such fail with reading lately. It all started when I picked up You Are Here: A Portable History of the Universe by Christopher Potter. It’s relatively short, less than 300 pages, but I was in the middle of a chapter with a lot of numbers, and well you should know when there’s numbers my brain sort of glazes, I begin to think about other things, like donuts. Anyways, while reading this book excruciatingly slowly, I’ve picked up other books to amuse me, but haven’t read as many books last week as I would like to.
Anyways here’s the list for those of you listwhores out there.
Read last week:
Copper Sun by Sharon Draper
The Total Tragedy of a Girl Named Hamlet by Erin Dionne (well, more like, read last night)
You Are Here: A Portable History of the Universe by Christopher Potter
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy – (so far, so good, ‘cept those Russians seem to enjoy getting drunk and tying cops to bears… I approve)
I Plan to Read (from Today to next Monday):
This World We Live In by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Tagged by Maura Purnhagen
Everything Here Is The Best Thing Ever by Justin Taylor
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (re-read)
I Need To Write Reviews For These Books: (holla for Procrastination!!)
Copper Sun by Sharon Drapper
The Total Tragedy of A Girl Named Hamlet by Erin Dionne
The House of Tomorrow by Peter Boganni
Beatle Meets Destiny by Gabrielle Williams
Okay and some other exciting news, I now have my own domain! This means my URL is no longer http://readingisthespiceoflife.blogspot.com but is http://www.goodbooksandgoodwine.com to match the name of my blog. The URL should automatically redirect. How exciting right! Also, I’ve been screwing around with html a lot, and changed the layout/background of my blog. Please be kind, as I’m a beginner and this is a work in progress. Oh and I added a feedburner feed, as well as an addthis at the bottom of each feed. I’ve spent probably about 20 or more hours this past weekend working on the blog and I am so excited about it, even if it does look amateurish, it’s something I did myself (with the thanks of google and how-tos guides online).
Also, I think you should take some time and nominate your 5 picks for the Top 100 YA Books of All Time and then tweet the link to all of your friends, you can just copy-paste this: Good Books & Good Wine: What Are The Top 100 Young Adult Books of All Time? http://ow.ly/1oRKlI (via @booksandwine)
