It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (27)

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'm one of those people that likes to read books before I see the movie version, and since I really really want to see Something Borrowed I just had to read the book! I really liked it. I'm not a big reader of chick lit, but I really enjoyed Something Borrowed. Sometimes I felt like all of the drama and problems could've been solved with people just sitting down and talking, but that is always easier said than done. I really liked the characters in Something Borrowed, and I was definitely happy with reading this as my first Emily Giffin book. :)
    After reading Something Borrowed, I just had to read Something Blue. While the first book was from Rachel's POV, this one was from Darcy's and took place kind of near the end of the last one, it had a little overlap, which I think would've been better if I'd read them farther apart to be honest, but I still really liked it. I didn't expect to like this one as much to be honest because I didn't really liked Darcy all that much, but I was pleasantly surprised! I definitely recommend both Something Borrowed and Something Blue! :D
    I received Seeking Shifters for review a while back, and I finally got to it. I admit, I had plenty of books to read for reviews, but I'm working on them. I really liked Seeking Shifters, it's definitely YA, and it had Shapeshifters and other paranormal creatures/entities. I loved the characters, and I had fun reading this one. It made me laugh, and even tear up at times. This is another one I definitely recommend, I mean the main character's name is Ima Blue Berry...if that doesn't tell you it's gonna be funny, I don't know what is! :P

    I really liked Bumped. I wasn't sure how I'd feel about it because the ratings have been all over the place, but I definitely enjoyed it. I can see why some people didn't really like all the lingo, it would've been helpful to have a guide in the back explaining some of the terms, but I thought that generally the meaning was clear enough that I knew what it meant. I'm excited for the next one, I can't wait to see what happens next for Melody and Harmony! :)


    Reading Now:
    I'm enjoying this one, but I'm still at the stage where I'm trying to figure out what everything means and what's going on. I should finish this one pretty soon. :)
      I've been neglecting this poor book, I'm gonna get my butt in gear and finish it this week though! :D
      I started this one last night and I'm pretty much hooked! :P


      Books I Want to Read This Week:
      I'm excited to start this one, it sounds like it'll be an interesting vampire story. :)
      This is another one I'm excited to start, it sounds hilarious! And it's a villain's story, so that should be interesting! :D

      And what are you reading???
