It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (77)

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.

So, I haven't posted this meme in a few weeks because I haven't been reading much, but I thought I'd get back to it this week since I actually managed to finish a book. :P lol

Books I Read Last Week:
I actually reread this one a few weeks ago, but hadn't posted about it yet, and I love it too much to not give it some love! :D I also couldn't forgive myself if I didn't try and encourage you all to check it out. ;) Bianca isn't your conventional heroine, and Wesley Rush is most definitely not your conventional hero, but I still love them, and I think you will too....especially Welsey. ;)


This is another reread, and I read it last week, but skipped my Monday post since I was doing aBEA, so I figured I'd talk about it this week. I'm also posting a review for it later this week, and in July I'm participation in the blog tour for Kelly Oram's next book. :) I love this book though. It's a quick and quirky read...it's not really that short, but you'll love Jamie, and Ryan so much that it will be a fast read...you seriously won't want to put it down. I haven't either time that I read it. ;) haha It's also really cheap for ebook right now, so I couldn't resist getting a Kindle version...and that totally incited a reread, which I loved! :D

Look what I finally finished on Saturday night! :D It's taken me a while, but I finally finished A Game of Thrones, and now I can move on to A Clash of Kings! :D I liked this one, but I think I might've liked it better if I hadn't already watched the show. The first season is based on the contents of the first book, so I never really had the urge to keep reading like I would have if I hadn't already watched the show. I knew what was going to happen so I didn't really have a desperation to know what cam next...except during Jon Snow's parts...I just love that boy. ;) haha That being said, I'm really looking forward to reading the books that haven't been made into episodes of the show yet, and hopefully I can get through them all before next season starts...pretty likely since the next season won't be for a while. *sigh* I miss the show already. :P


Reading Now:
 I read the first few books in this series years ago, but I'm finally trying to get through the whole series now, starting from the beginning. Joanne Fluke has an awesome sense of humour, so I'm looking forward to it. Really enjoying the reread of this already, especially since I don't remember much. :)

I've only just started the Prologue of this one, and the Prologue's a bit dry, so I'm looking forward to the first actual chapter. :P lol I'm definitely excited to read this one. I think the second season of the show only goes to the halfway point of this one too, so it should be some fresh stuff too! Plus, more Jon Snow, and Dany, I like her too! :D

This was supposed to be my next buddy read with Zoë, but we both kind of got off schedule. She already finished, and I'm only just starting. Hopefully I can finish soon and we can move on to a new one. I am enjoying this one though...but some of the characters are really unlikable. :P


Books I Want to Read This Week:
I kind of pushed this one to the side, so I'd like to get back to it this week and hopefully finish it! :)

And what are you reading???

    1. Oooh, glad to hear you loved it! :D Well, I've already watched Season 2, so I can't really undo that, but I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what happens beyond what's been on the show! :D

  2. I just started the Game of Thrones show this weekend. The first episode was really confusing but after a bit it all cleared out pretty good. :)

    Happy reading this week!
    What are YOU reading @ The Brunette Librarian??

    1. Yeah, I found it confusing at first, too. There are just so many people and you don't know anyone yet, and they're telling you so much. haha But, it gets clearer. I found reading the first book definitely helped me remember who was who, too. :)

      Thanks, same to you! :)

  5. Yay. I haven't done one of these in awhile either cause I haven't been reading, but I did read this week so far, so I'll put one up next Monday :) I'm curious what you think of Glitch, get back on that! And I'm sad GoT is over, loved it! Can't wait for the next season :D

    1. :D That's why I hadn't done one for a while either. Can't wait to see it! :D I just started reading it again last night and I'm seriously loving it! I didn't want to stop reading, but since I'd already stayed up until like 4 reading the day before...I forced myself to go to sleep. haha I know. :( I loved it too. It's gonna be a long wait until it's back! lol
