It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a fun weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey where we share what we've read and reviewed over the past week and what we plan to read next.
I had a busy week and weekend so I only finished one book. I did have fun visiting my sister this weekend. I was there for a Christmas party and then on Sunday afternoon we went to see Breaking Dawn Part 2. She hadn't seen it yet and her verdict was that it was better than the book and she thought the twist really added to the movie. We are both reading the same book at the moment and I look forward to discussing Reached with her when we've both finished it.
This week I am really excited about watching The Hobbit. Are you planning to see it this week?
Crossed by Ally Condie (reread)
I think I liked this book more after rereading it. It still isn't as good as Matched but I think I got more out of it the second time around.
Princess Elizabeth's Spy by Susan Elia MacNeal
Reached by Ally Condie
I am more than halfway through Reached and I like it so far. It reminds me of Mockingay a little bit.
What I plan to read next:
The Fire Chronicle by John Stephens
This sequel to The Emerald Atlas involves more adventure and magic with Kate time traveling 100 years in the past to New York City and Michael and Emma facing off against monsters and polar storms. Should be exciting!
The Walnut Tree by Charles Todd
I think this historical romance/mystery will be a nice break from the YA dystopian fiction and fantasy I've been reading lately. Plus it is subtitled as a "holiday tale" so it should be perfect for this time of year.
Star Wars: Scoundrels by Timothy Zahn
I loved Zahn's Thrawn Trilogy series which was set after The Return of the Jedi. This book is set in between Star Wars: A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. It is being described as an "Ocean's Eleven" heist adventure so it sounds like fun.
