It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday!  What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week.  It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.  Click on the picture to be taken to Sheila at One Person's Journey Through A World of Books!

I somehow managed to get in 4 books again this week.  While, not completely unusual, it is for this time of year when I seem to be busier (especially since my mother-in-law will be here Thursday).  Maybe it's because I've had a hard time sleeping this past week.

I started off with The Summer of Skinny Dipping by Amanda Howells.  Sadly my review won't post until June at the request of the publisher.  But, if you like young adult and coming of age stories, I recommend this one.  One of my few 5 star books for the year!

I read Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater next.  I've been meaning to read this one forever, just needed the push to put the hold in at the library.  I thought it was great book and really excited to get my hands on Linger (should be here tomorrow)!

I decided to finish The Ten Best Days of My Life by Adena Halpern.  I'm still not sure of this one.  Thankfully, it was a fast read.  If it hadn't been, I probably would not have finished it.  I don't mind chick-lit, but I do mind when the lead character is 29 and her narrative sounds more like she's 15.

I finished off the week with Wayfarer by R.J. Anderson.  I liked the first in the series, Spell Hunter.  But, I felt this one was so much better.  I think the faery lore is more thought out and the story line was great!

I started Silver Borne by Patricia Briggs last night, and managed to finish it this morning.  I think that counts in this weeks reads lol.  I didn't intend on doing that.  I have The Rose Without A Thorn by Jean Plaidy set out as part of my Read From My Shelves challenge this week, so I will probably read that next.  Then, I will read Linger by Maggie Stiefvater.   Last for the week is Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers! 


  1. It's hard to really get into a book where the character doesn't act the age they are supposed to I totally agree. And talk about a teaser for The Summer of Skinny Dipping! Five stars and I have to wait until June? Oh well, it's a good way to build excitement. :) Swing by my blog and drop me a line.

  2. I agree - the Summer of Skinny Dipping sounds interesting!
    I came by from Sheila's meme - would love to have you visit mine, if you have time!

  3. Great reading week for you. I love hearing about a book that was hard to put down! Got to get to Linger!

  4. Sounds like a lot of fun reading! I look forward to reading Linger and Wayfarer. :)


I love comments!
