It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (54) - November 15th to 28th

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:

So...I finished this one! Yay! And I actually finished it in time for class..double yay! On the nay side, it was a meh read for me. While it was much...and I mean, much, better than Oroonoko, I still wasn't a huge fan. I did like the story overall, but I just felt like it dragged on, and the narrative style was a miss for me...plus, I got tired of hearing about Robinson's cats...yes, yes, he has two of them, I know! :P

I liked this one. I especially liked that it was a quick read, so I was able to squeeze it in amongst a super busy time. That being said, this is my least favourite Sarah Dessen book so far. I liked Haven, and I totally supported her freak-out in this book, but I felt like it was so unresolved. I mean, I got how some of it was resolved, but for the most part, it was like she went from being super angry to nothing...nada, she didn't even have any residual anger...and that just confused me. This one also didn't have any actual romance in it, which I guess I've come to expect from Sarah Dessen, but oh well. I still liked it, but I say if you want to read a Sarah Dessen book go for The Truth About Forever or Along For the Ride first. :)

Loved, loved, loved this one! :D I've had an up-and-down relationship with The Immortals series. I've loved some of the books, been so-so with others, really disliked one of them, but this one...this one was my favourite! It was such a satisfying end to the series. There are so many possibilities still open, but with this series I really liked that because it just reinforces the message, that Ever and Damen's story and their love...is "everlasting." Seriously perfect...with this ending I fully recommend this series, it's worth any rough patches you might hit while reading through the other books. :)

Reading Now:
I'm finally getting around to reading some sequels during my brief moments where I can spare some time to read. This one is my current bath-time read. :P I'm really enjoying it...although, I must say this is my least favourite of the Fallen covers so far, the girl on the cover just looks so skinny...it's kind of off-putting. :S Anyway, I'm really enjoying the story though. :P

This one's for my Canadian Lit class...which I was reading Three Day Road for...and I've kind of stopped reading that one, but I'm hoping that I'll be able to pick it up and finish it before the final, which I think I can manage since it's not until December 14th. :P

Reading this one for my Restoration and the 18th century class...I must add the 18th century part, not all of the titles we've been reading are actually Restoration titles. :P This one's pretty interesting and I was pleasantly surprised to find out that so far it is a much quicker read than Oroonoko and Robinson Crusoe. :P

Books I Want to Read This Week:

I'm hoping to be able to squeeze this one in during my free moments next week...unlikely, but a girl can dream. :P lol

  3. What a great selection of books!

    If it weren't for the audio books we listened to while stuck in holiday traffic, I wouldn't have gotten much read this week. Please come see what we've read.
