It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (67)

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 liked this one. :) I've been wanting to read it for a while, so I'm glad I got to it during my reading week! It was a really quick read, and I liked the parallels between King Arthur's legends and this one. I also watched the made-for-tv movie version that Disney did and I didn't like it as much. It was still cute, but boy did they change a lot for the movie...and frankly, the changes made absolutely no sense! Just saying. :P But, the book was great, and it did make sense. ;P

I absolutely loved this one! Va-va-va-voom! Mick was super sexy, and I loved that his POV was in this along with Tara's...it was such a nice touch! Fabulous book, and if you're looking for some romance and you find athletes smoking hot, you'll love this one...even if you don't find them smoking hot, you probably will still love it because Mick was an all-around-awesome guy! :D

Fan-freaking-tastic! That's what this book was! My second experience with poetic verse is officially a success! Exposed was amazing. Such an intense story, and it was told in a remarkable way. I really enjoyed the parallels between the Liz's photography and the situation that surrounded her. It was really interesting, and so well done. I definitely recommend this one, especially if you want a quick, yet awesome read. I flew through this one in about 2-3 hours, it seriously just zooms by, and you will love it!

Another one I loved...if you can't tell, it's been an amazing book week for me! Love love loved Tripp...and Lexi, too. They were both amazing, and Tripp is quite the catch...tee hee I made a pun...you just won't know that until you read it! I'll be reviewing this one shortly, and I'm participating in the blog tour next month, too, so stay tuned for a cool giveaway! :D

Again...I loved this one! I started this one thinking I'd just read a bit...nope, read a bit before bed (bit being about a third of the book :P), and then devoured it as soon as I woke up...and I have to say....it...was....AMAZING! The best ending that I could have imagined for this trilogy. I'm still sad about the cover change, but when I get my finished copy, I'll definitely want to do a reread of the series! It's always nice for a series you love to end of a note that you're happy with! :D


Reading Now:

  • Emma by Jane Austen
We're actually covering this one in class now, so I'm back to focusing on it. I've read it before, so it's kind of interesting to see how my perspective has changed now that I know how things turn out. :P

I'm a few chapters into this one now and it's cute, definitely marketed at a younger audience, but with the characters being pretty mature. One thing that is driving me crazy right now though is the 14-year-old boy who is 6'2"...I don't know about anyone else but I've never known a 14-year-old boy to be that tall...so I'm curious, anyone know one?? Seriously...I really want to know, just so that I can be like, "okay, there are some that tall." :P Boys get taller later, that's why it's kind of driving me crazy, 16 I could believe, but at 14...not quite THAT tall! Small detail I know, but I'm really curious now. :P


*Also still reading Before I Fall, and Fallen in Love, but I don't want this section to get too big. :P

Books I Want to Read This Week:
I'm participating in a blog tour for this one, and it's coming up later in March, so I want to get on the ball and start it early. It sounds awesome though, so I'm really looking forward to it! :D


And what are you reading???
