It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (85)

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:
I really liked this one. It did have a few editorial issues that bothered me, but I absolutely adored the whole plot...so that made me super happy. :) I'm kind of a sucker for stories where celebrities (even the imagined variety) pop up! ;D

Playing to Win (Play by Play, #4)
Yup...I made time for Playing to Win during my Thanksgiving weekend...and boy am I glad that I did! ;D I absolutely loved Cole and Savannah's story....*dreamy sigh* And I seriously ADORE this series. :D I love that the men are dreamy and oh so sexy....and yet they aren't afraid to admit their feelings. It may take them a while, but they'll admit to it all...and I love that! :D Plus, I just seriously find athletes attractive...sports romances kind of made me realize that. :P haha

Sophocles I: Oedipus The King, Oedipus at Colonus, Antigone (The Complete Greek Tragedies, #8)
Had to read Oedipus the King and Antigone for my one class. :P All ready for my quiz tomorrow now, yay! :D

Reading Now:
The Gleaning - Spellspinners of Melas County 2
This is an interactive story where you get to choose options to help determine the final outcome of the book. I've already read through the first major option, but I still have to read through the second. :) I'm absolutely loving it though! So neat, and I just love these characters...fantastic! :D

Ironskin (Ironskin, #1)
This one's a retelling of Jane Eyre...which I somehow overlooked before I started it, but I'm finding it pretty interesting actually. It also makes me super glad that I've already read Jane Eyre. ;) So far, I really like it...some is kind of creepy though, and I'm looking forward to how it all turns out. :)

The Last Temptation of Christ by Nikos Kazantzakis

The Last Temptation of Christ
Yup, still reading this for school. It's crunch time. I'm going to make myself finish this during the next week...wish me luck!

Books I Want to Read This Week:

NO PLANS! I'm going to try not to plan ahead this week! I wanna get what I've already started done, so I'm not thinking ahead as of yet. I'm sure I'll pick something else up though. :P

And what are you reading???

Check out One Person's Journey Through a World of Books to see what other people are reading. :)


  1. Oooh ... Ironskin looks super good! I love a good Jane Eyre retelling, even if I haven't read the original! And look at you not planning your reads for the week! I'm actually quite amazing at how MUCH you read, even when you're in school full time!

    Have a good week!

    1. So far I really like it! :D I like the whole Fey element...it's neat! :D haha yup, and hopefully it'll help me to manage my school books. :P lol I make time...or try and find quick reads! haha

      Thanks, Kristilyn! I hope you have a good week, too! :D

  2. Ambur... if I'm totally honest, I don't want to read any of the books on your list this week :P Except maybe Sophocles and I've already read it (some anyway). But I definitely hope you enjoy them! Happy reading :)

    p.s. I need to start reading again so I can make these posts...
