It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Book Journey. It’s a great way to plan your reading week (because some of us are nerds and like to plan our reading week) and also get ideas for other great books!
Last week, as per usual, I got a little bit off my scheduled order of events. Instead of “squeezing in” Defiance when it arrived on Saturday, I just completely replaced The Danger Box. I only had enough time for one more, and Defiance was calling my name. And it. Was. Amazing. I’ll gush more about it later.
So I will attempt to do The Danger Box this week, but it may get shoved off again, because I got some books out of the library that I’m itching to start. Those include:
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I’ve heard some great things about this book, and it will be an interesting change of pace from all the fantasy/dystopian I’ve been reading lately.
Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer. This book about a teenage girl surviving in a post-apocalyptic world (after a meteor pushes the moon off its axis, resulting in global catastrophe) has been met with mixed reviews, but I’ve been intrigued by it for a while. Time to plunge in and see where I stand.Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins. I’ve heard this is a fun and magical read, and I think it will balance the other two books this week nicely. I may also try to squeeze in (if I have time): Angel Eyes by Shannon Dittemore. This was a surprise bonus in the envelope with Defiance. It isn’t that long, and sounds interesting. If I don’t get around to this one this week, it’ll be on next week’s list for sure. That’s my reading week! What’s yours look like?
