It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (10)

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:
  • Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan
I absolutely loved this book! I wasn't really sure what I was expecting before reading this book, but it totally blew my mind. The story was so unique and I thought it was stunning. If you haven't read Will Grayson, Will Grayson you definitely should. It may be a story about two Will Grayson's, but it's also a story about love. :)

  •  Something Like Fate by Susan Colasanti
I've been wanting to read this one for a while. I've heard great things about Susan Colansanti. I liked this book, it was sweet and pretty fast paced. I thought it was easy to relate to the narrator, Lani, but I still didn't really understand why she did all of the things she did...and her 'best friend' or soul sister, Erin, kind of ticked me off. Erin was probably the only reason that I didn't LOVE this book, but I did like it, and I think it's definitely worth the read. :)

Reading Now:
  •  Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
I'm reading this for one of my English classes and I really like it so far. It'll probably take me a while to read though because of the pace we're going at for class. I don't want to read too far ahead because we have to do these free writing things, but I think I could easily fly through this story. I'm a little sad that I didn't start reading it sooner. :)
  • Graceling by Kristin Cashore
I finally ordered this from the library, and I'm getting so hooked! I'm not sure how I'm going to get any work done this week because I just wanna keep reading. :P

Books I Want to Read This Week:
  • Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins
This is another one that I've been wanting to read for a long time. It just came in from the library, and I can't wait to dig into this story! :D
  • Priscilla the Great by Sybil Nelson
I'm participating in a blog tour for this book and it just came in the mail. I'm excited to read it, it sounds like a really neat story, and I have a feeling I'm going to wish that I had powers like Priscilla. :)
So, what are you all reading this week?? Any books you absolutely have to share??
Feel free to check out One Person's Journey Through a World of Books to find out what everyone else is reading. :)


Happy Reading!!!

  1. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on The Graceling. I've seen it floating around, but have yet to read a review on it.

  2. Hex Hall and Graceling are two favourites of mine for very different reasons. I am currently in the midst of Will Grayson and it is one of my favourites so far. I had no idea what it was about when I started it and I am so glad I didn't now that I am reading it.

    Have a great reading week!

  3. Looking forward to your review of Graceling - I picked that up in the fall, but it's been sitting on my shelf ever since.

  4. Something Like Fate looks good and I hope you really enjoy Hex Hall - I did!
