It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (80)

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, just like my StS post, I totally skipped this one last week with the long weekend. :P So, these are the books I finished over the last two weeks. :)

Books I Read The Last 2 Weeks:

I actually didn't like this one as much as I thought I would. I expected the love to be more profound, but whenever the narrator, Cole, described his relationship with Julia it seemed to be more about the sex than anything. It was still a well told story, and focused a lot on grief, but I just didn't click with it like I thought I would.

I loved this one! :D I've had the egalley for a while, but was waiting until it was closer to the release for the blog tour...and now I wish I'd read it sooner because it was amazing! I'm really glad that I got the chance to read it. :)


I also loved this one. :D It was a novella, so a bit shorter, but I still managed to get caught up in Jem and Sean as I usually do! Now I really can't wait until Blue Moon's release! :D

I pretty much shrieked out loud when this one showed up in my mailbox! :D I picked it up right away...and I absolutely loved it! :D It broke my heart at times, and made me seriously anxious for the characters, but overall, I was extremely happy with this one. :D


I had a great book week because I loved this one too! :D I loved the references to the 90's and the little jokes that Emma and Josh didn't get, but we as the reader in the future did...and ultimately, I loved the characters. They were fantastic. :D

Google play finally became available for my Kobo Vox so I bought this one up, and I loved it! The ending was a brutal cliffhanger though!!! Now I can't wait until the next one. Anyone have any ideas when it comes out???


Reading Now:
This one is so intense, but I'm really enjoying it. Ellen Hopkins is amazing at verse, and even if the subject matter is intense, as it is in Identical, I can't help but appreciate the art form that her books are. I hope for Raeanne and Kaeleigh that this story somehow has a happy (or happy-ish) ending.


Books I Want to Read This Week:

I meant to read this one back when it came out, but school got a bit crazy and so I pushed it to the side! I took the book jacket off now though, and we all know that means business. ;) haha Hopefully I'll get to it after I finish Identical. :)


And what are you reading???

    1. It is a fun way to recap, and you can do it however you like. :) Not everyone talks about the books from their week, but I like to. I'll definitely check out your post if you do it next week too. :D

  2. I so, so want to read The Future of Us! I adored 13 Reasons Why like no other and Jay Asher is a new favorite. I'm glad his second book held up to the hype.

    I'm currently reading The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman and The Sin Collector by Jessica Fortunato. It's been a dark week, I guess. :P

      Oooh, I have The Graveyard Book, but I haven't gotten to it yet. I hope you're liking it. I haven't heard of The Sin Collector before now though. I'll have to check it out.

    1. I sure did! :D Hmmmm...I'm not sure if I could choose, but if I had to, I'd say that Promised was my favourite. It's also the conclusion to a series that I've been really anticipating. :D
