It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? (1)

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books

This is my first time participating in ‘It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?’ and I’m pretty excited! :)

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:

• Native Speaker by Chang-Rae Lee

We’re actually reading this for my English class, and I didn’t expect to like it as much as I did. I'm not planning on reviewing it, but it's definitely a story worth looking into. It's not my usual tastes, since I tend to gravitate towards fantasy stories, but I thought it was a fantastic story, and I was pleasantly surprised.
• The Iron Queen by Julie Kagawa

Thanks to Netgalley I got to read this awesome story before February! I actually was kind of giddy and jumping up and down once I got the email saying my request had been approved! I plan on doing a review for this one after I get my review for The Iron Daughter up. I already posted my review for The Iron King if anyone is interested.

• Tyger Tyger by Kersten Hamilton

Once again, I have Netgalley to thank for this lovely read. I absolutely loved Tyger Tyger, it was fabulous. I’ll hopefully have a review up for this one soon too....these reviews are starting to pile up, but I have a busy week coming up, so hopefully I’ll get some stuff done.

Reading Now:

• The Lipstick Laws by Amy Holder

I just started this one, and again, I have Netgalley to thank. :)

• The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

I took this out from the library a couple weeks ago, and haven’t made much headway, it’s an interesting enough story, I just kind of started other books and pushed it to the side.

• Jane Slayre by Charlotte Bronte and Sherri Browning

• The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne

These last two I’ve been reading for a while now, and unfortunately they keep getting ignored. :S I think I’ll have to stop reading other books for a while. :P

I'm thinking I may have to stop reading so many books at once....

Books I Want to Read This Week:

• Nevermore by Kelly Creagh

Another library book, and I am so excited to read this one, it sounds amazing!


I’ll probably read more books that aren’t on this at all, and if I do you’ll find out next Monday ;)

So what are you reading?? And why don’t you check out One Person's Journey Through a World of Books to find out what everyone else is reading. :)

Happy Reading and Do Svidaniya!!!
