It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (79)

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.

I got tonnes of reading done earlier this week! :D I might actually catch up to my Goodreads reading challenge at this rate. ;D haha

Books I Read Last Week:
I loved this one so much! :D I'll be participating in the blog tour at the beginning of next month, so I'm going to post my review then. :) I definitely recommend checking it out. It was funny, had great characters, and an awesome mix of mystery thrown in! :D

 
I didn't like this one as much as I expected that I would. I think that's more because it's a bit dated now. The dialogue is really formal, but I did still enjoy it, just not as much as I thought I would. :P Are You There God, It's Me Margaret is still on the top of my Judy Blume list. I love that one, it's so funny! ;D

This is the last book in the Vampire Kisses series, and I absolutely loved it! :D What a fantastic ending to a fun series. :)

I don't read Graphic Novels very often, but I really liked this one. :) It was funny, had some great art, and some seriously awesome puns! ;D

Dreamland is so different from Sarah Dessen's other books, but I still liked it. This one is pretty dark though, and it left me a little conflicted after reading it, but it really moved me. I was in tears during a few parts of the book, and by while I don't think I would ever actually be in Caitlin's position, I felt a lot of compassion for her, and for girls like her.

This one was awesome! :D I really enjoyed the musical aspect, and like reading from Orion's point of view...plus he has such an awesome name! It also had some really cool extra details, like blog updates with comments and everything. :D

This was my favourite book all week! I absolutely loved it, and I really liked the main character, Tristan. He was a bit of a cocky jerk at times, but he was really upfront about it, and I loved that. :) I also liked reading from a male POV for mermaids...or should I say merfolk. :D It was awesome! :D


Reading Now:



I'm still reading these two, but they kind of got pushed to the side for a bit last week since I was trying to catch up on a few review titles. Hopefully I'll get back to them soon. :)
The Kobo Vox finally got the Google play store, and so I just had to buy this one! :D I read the first couple of chapters and really like it so far. I'm looking forward to getting to the interactive parts. :D

Cowboys...that is all. :P Just kidding, but I am liking this one so far. :D I'm participating in the blog tour for this one, so I'm gonna be focusing on this one for the next couple days. :)


Books I Want to Read This Week:
I've been meaning to start this one for a while, and I'm hoping to get to it this week. :) It's a novella so it's not very long, but I'm psyched to get another taste of the Holloway pack! :D


And what are you reading???

  2. When I was young - a long time ago - there was a Judy Blume book out called Blubber. It was a decidedly un-PC book about the fat girl in class. I bet that has stopped being printed.

    1. I've heard of that one. I haven't read it though. It probably hasn't been. Forever was just reprinted a few years ago, and that's the edition I bought myself, so Blubber might have been too.

  3. I'm going to be starting the first book in the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde. I love that you are reading Judy Blume again - it's been a lot of years since I've read those. :)

    1. I haven't heard of that one. :) haha Thanks. I hadn't read any of her books for a while either, but I wanted to check out Forever since I've heard so much about it.
