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:
- Marked By Passion by Kate Perry
Ok, I absolutely loved this story. I finished it in one day, and I definitely wanted more. I'm going to have to go out and get the second book in the series, Chosen by Desire pronto. I actually read this one when I was already overwhelmed with stuff I 'should' have been doing instead...what can I say it had me hooked. :P
Oh man...this book was just awesome. I was psyched to start this book, and I wasn't disappointed, well except for the fact that I didn't have the time to stay in bed and finish it in one sitting :P
I definitely recommend this book to anyone who's into contempory reads. It deals with serious topics, so it isn't a light happy-go-lucky read, but it was a moving story that I personally loved.
- Infinity by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Like I said last week, I have been wanting to read this forever! At first, I was a little disappointed. I'll admit I didn't really like this book at first, but the more I read the more I wanted to read, and I was so drawn in that I didn't even notice I'd reached the end. I think the language threw me at first. This book is so full of slang, and also the protagonist is a 14-year-old boy. I am not a fan of slang in books, at least not when it's all slang. When it's for an accent, I like it because I find accents very sexy, but when it's words like 'ain't' or something like 'we don't got no school' I really just can't stand it, so parts of this book really annoyed me. And I've had problems getting into stories with younger teenage guys as the protagonist, it's the reason I didn't keep reading the Pendragon series after the first book. That being said, I really liked this book closer to the end, Nick's humour made up for the slang for the most part, and it was packed with action. I can't wait to read Invincible, it comes out in March.
This sounded like an interesting story, so I ordered it from the library. I'm not very far in yet though, it's got a bit of a slow beginning, at least it seems that way for me. Hopefully it'll pick up pace soon :)
I won this book over the summer, and it sounds pretty interesting. I figure it'll be a good balance to The Replacement.
