It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (61)

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 absolutely loved this one! :D The characters were fantastic, and the story was so addictive! I don't reread books very often anymore, but this is one that I definitely plan to reread in the future because it's fabulous! :D
 
I'm in a Travel Literature class this semester, and we had to have this one read by the second class....thankfully, it's a pretty quick read. I don't know why, but I always assumed that I wouldn't really like this kind of book...and I was wrong. While, I didn't completely fall in love with this book, it did surprise me, and I actually really enjoyed. I'm definitely looking forward to the rest of the books I need to read for that class now. :D



Reading Now:
Almost finished this one. It's for one of my classes, and I keep stopping and starting it though...I need to sit down and finish it, thankfully it isn't very long. :P

I started this one before I was assigned the order of the books I need to read for my classes, so I made a dent in it, but I pushed it aside to read my school stuff. It's a pretty quick read, so I think I'll finish it pretty quickly though when I get time for it. :)

  • Emma by Jane Austen
Poor Emma, I don't have to have Emma read for a couple of weeks now, so this one's kind of pushed to the side for a bit, too, but I'm definitely anxious to get back to it. :)

Another one I have to read for my one British Lit class. Haven't gotten very far into this one though, so not much to say. :P

I'm not enjoying this one as much as the other book for my travel class. It's reading a lot like a journal at this point, and I'm finding it kind of dry, but some of it is really fascinating. This woman rode her bike from Ireland to India...pretty crazy. Although to be honest, she seems to be getting a lot of rides in vehicles, so it's not totally just cycling, but it's still impressive. :)



Books I Want to Read This Week:
I was so excited to read this one! then it popped up on Netgalley, and I clicked request as fast as possible. I can't wait to read it. I'm pretty sure it's short pieces, so I should be able to squeeze bits and pieces this week at the very least. :P


And what are you reading???

  1. A travel literature class sounds really interesting - I hadn't heard of it before. I would love to hear some more about what it involves.

  4. So glad to hear you like Revived. :) That's one on my can't wait list! I don't often re-read either so it means a lot to me when I say that it's a book I will re-read one day (or actually do). lol

  5. @Tanya: It's pretty much exactly what it sounds like. We read travel literature, so books about travel. We have quizzes every week, which kind of sucks, and my prof keeps assigning random stuff that doesn't even count for marks, but it's an okay class so far. The prof's funny at least. :P

    @Sheila: I think it does, too. :) Thanks :D

    @Alice: Thanks for the memo, Alice. :)

    @Sarah: :) It's awesome! :D Ya, re-reads are rare for me now since there's so much else to read, so the same goes for me. I pretty much only reread my favourites now. :)
