It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? Is a weekly meme that I think used to be hosted by Sheila over at Book Journey. I’m not sure if she’s still hosting it and if she created it or? Anyway, I love reading others’ posts on Mondays so I thought I would give it a hook and see if it was something I’d like to do regularly! So… Without further ado…
I had an amazing reading week last week and hope to keep the trend going! Last week I finished listening to the audiobook of Modern Romance: An Investigation by Aziz Ansari (5/5) and I finished up A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas (3/5). Then I read The Last Good Day of the Year by Jessica Warman(4.5/5), Bone Gap by Laura Ruby (4/5), and Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver (4/5)!
I had begun reading All the Rage
by Courtney Summers after hearing pretty great things about it. I’m glad I borrowed it from the library rather than purchasing it. After reading about 30 pages, although intrigued, I had to DNF it. It had a lot
of swears in it, and I’m just personally not into that. Instead I decided to pick up Nowhere But Here
by Katie McGarry! I’m thinking this was a pretty good choice. It’s got some great reviews and I’m loving it so far! It’s a nice change from the last few books I read because they were kind of dark and, well, kidnap-y. Still, the language is not exactly PG (unfortunately for me), but it seems better than All the Rage
so far in that regard. Hopefully it stays that way…
Also since I finished listening to my current audiobook, I picked out another! I’m now listening to Ready Player One
by Ernest Cline. I’m really excited about this one! I have been meaning to read this book forever
, and when I learned that Will Wheaton narrates it, I was like, GAME ON!
After I finish these, I have no idea what I will pick up next–and I like that! For the past few months I have had several review copies for book tours etc., and I had been feeling the pressure. As a mood reader, I’m really enjoying being able to pick up whatever I feel like in the moment.
But, here are some books that are on my list and I want to get to soon:
The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh, More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera, The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater, Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng, & Armada by Ernest Cline.
