It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (91)

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:
This novella starts off Rita Webb's Paranormal Investigations series, and I really really enjoyed it! It was a pretty short story, really fast-paced and I loved it! I'm looking forward to reading more of this series, and I'll hopefully have a review for this one up some time soon. :)

I read this one for a blog tour (happening this week :P), and I enjoyed it. :) I haven't read Pretty Amy yet, and I think I would have enjoyed it even more if I had, but I still thought it was a great story! It also made me seriously curious about Amy and Joe's past....so I will definitely be checking out Pretty Amy and then it's companion novel, Dear Cassie. ;D

Reading Now:
Okay...I have to confess that I am sooooooo bored of this book! Seriously, so bored. I'm one of those people who needs characters I like (notice I say "people" not readers because for me this transcends to TV and movies, too). I can do action, and I even like action when it's well balanced with characterization...this is pretty much all action, and I'm really not a fan of that. :( I feel about this book pretty much the same that I felt about the Casino Royale movie...and I fell asleep when I watched that. :S Hopefully I can manage to trudge through to the end without falling asleep. :P

I didn't get the chance to read this one during the week, but my reading week is next week, so I think I'll get to finish it then. :) I have 2 essays due this week, so it'll have to wait until Friday. :P

Books I Want to Read This Week:
If you read my Stacking the Shelves post, you might have noticed my fangirl-freakout over this book. :P Needless to say, I won't be able to wait very long to read this one! Hopefully I can get motivated, finish my essays and get started on this baby soon!!!! :D

So, that's what I'm reading....what are you reading???

  2. I've heard so often the title of the movie Spartacus. It looks like Ben Hur??? I don't know the plot. I wonder what's it about. Have a good reading week.

    1. There are actually two books titled Spartacus...and it's the other one that the movie is based on. That one basically follows Spartacus's life and the slaves revolt (or so I've heard), and this one has a bunch of narrators and kind of hops around a lot between characters. Ben Hur and Spartacus do have some similarities, so you're right in comparing them. The plot is basically the rise and revolt of the slaves against their Roman masters. If you want to know more, you can always google it. ;) haha Thanks, and I hope you do, too! :D
