It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? (2)

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?, is a bookish meme hosted by One Person's Journey Through a World of Books, where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It’s a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list. So hop on over to Journey and join in...and leave a comment here so I can check out what you are reading.

Books I Read Last Week:

• Zombies Vs Unicorns


This is an anthology edited by Holly Black and Justine Larbalestier. It had a bunch of short stories by various popular YA authors, like Cassandra Clare, Scott Westerfeld, and Meg Cabot. They each wrote a story either for Team Zombie or for Team Unicorn. I'm not sure if I can decide. I love me some zombies, they make up some of my favourite horror movies, but unicorns are so awesome too. I think I'm gonna have to cheer for both if that's possible. Both of them rule in their own ways...although if I had to be friends with one, I'd go for the unicorn, unless it was a flesh eating unicorn. lol


Reading Now:

  •  The Vespertine by Saundra Mitchell
 
Another book I can thank NetGalley for. :)
  • Nevermore by Kelly Creagh
 Got this one from the library, it's definitely not a quick read, but I like it so far.

* sadly I had to return the Book Thief to the library...I'll have to read it another time, there were a bunch of holds on it, so I didn't take it out again. I'm also still reading A Scarlet Letter and Jane Slayre, but I haven't picked them up this week. I'm hoping to finish them at least by Christmas :P

Books I Want to Read This Week:

• Nightshade by Andrea Cremer


I bought this one the day it came out, but then I had a bunch of library books come in and it got pushed aside, hopefully I can pick it up this week. :)

I'm not gonna put any others for to read because I'm not sure if I'll even get to Nightshade, but hopefully I will. It's pretty snowy and cold where I live right now though so I tend to want to hibernate rather than read. :P
So what are you reading?? And why don’t you check out One Person's Journey Through a World of Books to find out what everyone else is reading. :)

Happy Reading and Do Svidaniya!!!

  5. @The Slowest Bookworm: I just started it, and I'm loving it already, it'll so be worth the wait! :D
    @Brook...: Glad to hear it! :D
    @Jan von Harz: I just finished Nevermore...it was stunning, so poetic, definitely fitting with the whole Poe theme. And Nightshade is great, I'm only a couple chapters in, but so far so good :) I'll talk about Vespertine once I finish, hopefully I'll have good things to say :)
    @Barb: it is one of the most gorgeous covers in my opinion,and the sequel Wolfsbane has a beautiful cover too :)
    @Jennifer: Hey :D it fits perfectly ;)
    I do love zombies :D I haven't been watching it actually, I'm gonna have to start though, hopefully I can find it online, we don't have cable at my city house lol oh I love paranormal romance :D enjoy :D
