It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (87)

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 meant to post this earlier after I finished my tutoring sessions for the day, but I got distracted by homework (fun *not*), and the episodes of The Neighbors that I had on my DVR (hilarious btw!), but I've got it finished now, so here's my Monday post!


Books I Read Last Week:
After Rola and Leanne from the Edmonton Book Bloggers both didn't like this one...and it finally came in my mailbox, I just had to rush and finish it. And I actually really enjoyed it! I didn't love it as much as Silence, which was definitely my favourite in the series, but I did really like it. :) I liked seeing Nora taking control and getting to prove to Patch that he didn't need to always protect her. And while I definitely could've used more Patch and Nora, Patch's last words in the book definitely sated me a bit...plus, he series had some sweet lines in this book, and he made me go all "Awwwww" and *swoon* repeatedly. ;) All in all, I was definitely satisfied with how this series ended, and I plan to reread the saga in its entirely when I get the chance...although with my TBR pile I have no clue when that will be. ;) haha

I was going to read this one with my buddy Zoe from In the Next Room, but November's a busy time for her (she's doing NaNoWriMo), so she had to bail on me! But, we're going to chat about it once she gets the chance to read it, so I'm satisfied. :) Plus, I totally devoured this book, and loved it! :D I'm telling you all right now if you can get your hands on this book...do so! It's amazing!!! :D Hopefully I'll get a review up sometime soon, but I have a few on the back burner, so those must go up first. ;)



Reading Now:
  • We by Yevgeny Zamyatin
So, I started We last week, and I'm liking it so far. :) I kind of got a bit distracted with Hallowe'en and put it down for a bit, but hopefully I'll have it done by next Monday. :)


Books I Want to Read This Week:
Another one from Coliloquy, and I'm excited for this one. It sounds really interesting, and like it'll be a fitting book to read with all of the US Election stuff surrounding me...although being Canadian, I have to admit, I'm not really following it. I do find it interesting to see how the US political system runs compared to ours though. :D

And what are you reading???

  1. RIght? CREWEL WAS SO GOOD! And omg the finished copy is just so damn pretty in person. I haven't read any of the Hush, Hush books and don't intend to but I am happy that the ending fared better with you than it did for Leanne and Rola!

    1. I'm not crazy at all. :P Just because you didn't like it doesn't mean that I had to not like it, too. :P But, we do definitely need to chat about it.
