It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (50)

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:

 I really ended up liking this one, it was a very sweet story. :) And the characters were feisty...just how I like 'em! haha I'll be reviewing this one for a blog tour in November, so my review won't be up for a while, but keep your eyes open for it. ;)

So, clearly I made time for Lola this week...and I loved it! Seriously, it was amazing! I loved Lola, I loved Cricket, and I loved everything I could have possibly loved about this book! It was fabulous! :D

I like this series, but I always feel like just when it starts to get intense...BAM! The book's over. They're pretty short, and they're very fast reads, but I always want more after I finish! I really like Raven, she's definitely a darker character...who actually said she wanted to be a vampire when she grew up back in her elementary days, but she always stands up for what she wants, and I thunk because of that, she's a fantastic role model, and she's hilarious...plus her boyfriend is very dreamy. ;P

I love Lauren Barnholdt! :D And this one was a great read, it wasn't my favourite though, in fact, I think it's my least favourite so far, but I still really enjoyed it. The one thing that I didn't like about this one was that the  main character, Shannon, would constantly think things and then she'd say them out loud, or something very similar, right afterward, and it just got on my nerves because it was so repetitive, but other than that, I really liked it! :)

I've read two Sarah Dessen books before this one, and I saw this one recommended on a blog a while back, so I put it on hold from the library, and also quite a few of her other books...which is why I keep getting so many from the library. :P Anyway, I loved this one! It took a while to get into because it skips back and forth between time a lot, but once I got into the story it really hooked me...and so did Owen...*sigh* ;)


Reading Now:
I haven't read too much of this one yet, but it's okay so far. I like that it's from a guy's POV, and that it's a book that deals with issues, like peer pressure, bullying...and definitely BIGOTRY...tonnes of bigotry. I've got a bunch of assignments to work on this week, so hopefully I can squeeze in enough time to finish it...I'm sure I can. ;)


Books I Want to Read This Week:

I don't feel like making plans for reading this week...so I'll just pick this one, and hopefully I'll get to it...and maybe a few others, too. :)

As you can see, I've had an amazing week! I got so much reading done, and it was a week of fabulous books! I hope that you all had great reading weeks, too. :)

And what are you reading???

  1. okay for some reason this post totally hasn't shown up on my google reader :( luckily I stalked your blog and found it. ignore my earlier complaint about it not being up!

    anyway you managed to get a lot read this week, I guess having essays due will do that :) I have read two Dessen as well, but not Just Listen, I definitely want to read more by her in the future. I hadn't heard of the vampire kisses series but I kinda hate series that drag on forever and considering that is book #8, well I probably won't be picking it up :P Plus cliffhangers drive me mad.

    Anyway I hope that whatever you randomly end up reading is wonderful! Also that deviant cover is super-creepy, good book for halloween perhaps!

  2. That's weird :( haha okay, ignored. :P lol

    I did, I did...yup, nothing like having things to do to make you get stuff done that shouldn't be done...lol Agreed. I'm trying to read lots of her books. :) It's not a bad series, but definitely one that will probably be around for a VERY long time. lol Cliffhangers suck. :P This one wasn't too bad, but I still wanted to keep reading. lol

    Thanks, Zoë! :) It is, isn't it? Perhaps, I just picked it up because it's coming out soon, and I want to have it read before or at least around its release. lol
