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.
This past weekend I went to visit my sister and attended a fun fundraiser that she co-chaired. Each year The Parkview Foundation in Fort Wayne holds Cookin' Men, a fundraiser that supports a mobile mammography program. The local "chefs" made appetizers, main dishes, desserts, and drinks and I had plenty to eat (especially the desserts!). I had hoped to get some reading done during my visit but we were pretty busy with the fundraiser and then today we had brunch with friends before I had to head back home. I didn't get much sleep this weekend and I nearly fell asleep on the road a couple of times today but made it back safe :)
I only finished one book this past week but it was a fantastic book. I had hoped to finish another but I am still stuck halfway through the Nora Roberts book and I've started reading a review book on my Kindle. This week of course is Insurgent week and most of my reading will be YA books...
Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder
I really liked this book and while it did remind me a little of Poison Study, it was unique at the same time. Can't wait for book two!
Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
The Witness by Nora Roberts
I thought the first part of the story flowed really well and then it slows down when she is an adult in hiding. The romance and small town life kind of take over from there and I miss the suspense! I hope to finish this book but it is easy to put it aside at the moment.
The Unbearable Book Club For Unsinkable Girls by Julie Schumacher
I like that this book involves a book club and the story finds a way to incorporate the books that the club members are reading. I do have a hard time liking a couple of the characters. CeeCee drives me nuts and the main character Adrienne is acting stupid and following CeeCee's lead. Hopefully that changes by the end...
What I plan to read next:
Starters by Lissa Price
I kind of wanted to read this before Insurgent because I know it won't compare but somehow I don't think I'll get to it first.
Divergent by Veronica Roth
I plan to reread this before reading Insurgent as a refresher. I hope I will enjoy it just as much the second time around.
Insurgent by Veronica Roth
This is my most highly anticipated book of the year. I am a little nervous that it won't live up to my high expectations...
The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan
After reading more serious books like Divergent and Insurgent, I have a feeling I'll be ready for something laugh-out-loud funny so I thought I'd reread The Red Pyramid. I will of course be getting The Serpent's Shadow this week too but may not read it yet.
I hope you have a fantastic week and enjoy your reading!
Thanks for stopping by!
