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. All links for books go to Goodreads. :)


Books I Read Last Week:


I loved this book! It was just as adorable as I thought it would be. I was so into this story that I swear I was blushing for Patton sometimes. ;) I definitely recommend this book to anyone who's a fan of contemporary fiction, and for anyone who loves stories about cute and awkward first loves. :)


I wanted to make sure that I read Water For Elephants before the movie came out, and I am so glad that I did! This story was unbelievable, and I was so hooked! I loved the characters, the settings, absolutely everything! I especially loved the way that this book was organized, it was a mix of the main character, Jacob's memories and his present. The two were interwoven in a really beautiful way and while I read this book before bed I was constantly telling myself...just one more chapter, eventually I had to go to bed though because I had class in the morning. ;) Anyways, this book was wonderful, and I definitely recommend it. :)


Reading Now:


When I saw that this book had finally come in the mail this week I was kind of jumping for joy! I would've finished it this weekend if I wasn't working on my English paper, which is due on Tuesday...you can bet once I'm done that paper, I will sink my clutches into this book like a zombie, pardon me...an unmentionable, sink his teeth into brains! I hope that last part wasn't too graphic for anyone :S Anywho, I'm like half way through it, and I'm so enthralled with this book...but I must resist and finish that paper! gah!

*Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks (Audiobook)

I won this audiobook a while back, and I've finally started listening to it. It's kind of slow going though because when I listen to music I usually am doing other things, and with audiobooks I feel like I should be doing that too, but then I don't really catch anything. I'm getting used to it though. :)

*Running From Secrets by Stephanie Void

I'm still reading this one, I haven't been feeling like reading on the computer lately to be honest. With all my school stuff, I kind of feel like putting the computer away after, but I'm going to finish it this week, I'm determined. It's a good story so far, so I do really want to get to it. :)


Books I Want to Read This Week:

I'm not sure about all the ones that I'm going to get to this week, but I definitely want to finish some that I've started.

A couple I'd like to read are:

*Num8ers by Rachel Ward


And:

*Clarity by Kim Harrington

  2. I too was spurred into reading Water For Elephants after seeing the trailer for the film even though I'd had it on my TBR for over a year. Can't believe I waited so long, loved it. I liked the first Pride & Prejudice & Zombies because it was woven into the original...not sure how I'd feel about a sequel.

  3. I am debating whether or not I want to re-read Water For Elephants before watching the movie. It is on my all time favorite reads list.
