It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? (4)

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:
  • 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
  • Sticky Fingers by Niki Burnham
I can't remember where I heard of this book, but I put it on my 'For Later' list from the library. I randomly picked 2 books off that list, and this one happened to be one of them. I'll be honest though, when I put it on hold I couldn't even remember what it was about. I actually really liked this story, it was different. It covered a pretty serious topic that had quite the build-up, and I was drawn in trying to figure out what would happen. I really liked it, and it wasn't super long, which was nice because I was busy this week.
  • Sea by Heidi R. Kling
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.

Reading Now:
  • Ice by Sarah Beth Durst
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 :)

Books I Want to Read This Week:
  • The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff 
I bought this book a while ago, but I usually tend to read library books first because they have to go back, so The Replacement got pushed to the back burner. I'm excited to read this one, it sounds like it will be a very interesting read. :)
  • Gimme a Call by Sarah Mlynowski
I won this book over the summer, and it sounds pretty interesting. I figure it'll be a good balance to The Replacement.


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!!!

  3. I'm thrilled to see that you are going to read The Replacement. I read it in the past couple of month and did enjoy it! Kind of remind me of movies by Tim Burton. In fact, I wonder how it will be like if Tim Burton adapts that book into a movie!

  4. I have a copy of Gimme a Call by Sarah Mlynowski on my bookshelf, but I haven't read it yet. I won a copy of The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff along with four other books, but they never came. So sad.
