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 didn't have as much time to read this week as I'd hoped and I only read two books though I am halfway through my current book. Later this week I will be going back to Canada for my cousin's wedding so I don't know how many books I'll finish.
One Breath Away by Heather Gudenkauf
This came in for me at the library and I read it right away in one day. I just couldn't put it down! This is the first book by Gudenkauf that I've read and now I'm going to go back and search out her others.
Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
This book made me cry and now I'm a definite fan of Morgan Matson's YA contemporary fiction. It is the kind of story that stays with you and I'm still thinking about it days later. Need to write my review soon!
Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson (reread)
I have to say that I love this book even more the second time around. I can't wait till Crown of Embers is released this September. That is my next major book purchase.
What I plan to read next:
The Assassin and the Empire by Sarah J. Maas
This is the final prequel novella for Throne of Glass. I am sure I'll be able to at least finish this book since it will be a quick read.
For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund
I hope to finally read this retelling of Persuasion since I was so excited about it. I'm a little nervous that it won't live up to my expectations.
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
I've heard such good things about Code Name Verity. I love historical fiction and this is one of my favorite time periods. I haven't really read anything about female spies in WWII yet.
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
I'm worried that I'm going to hate this book (because of the arrogant main character and hinted at love triangle) but I've put it on my list again anyway since it is for review. I think the release date is next week.
Mr. Churchill's Secretary by Susan Elia MacNeal
A book that starts with a murder is always attention grabbing. I've already read the first chapter and am starting the second as soon as I can. It may have to wait till I get back from vacation as this is a library book and I'd hate to forget it in Canada...
Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel (reread)
I am planning to reread this ahead of reading the sequel, Dearly, Beloved. I didn't think I'd like a zombie romance but this book proved to be much more than that and was one of my favorite YA books from 2011.
Have you read any of these books?
What have you been reading lately? Have a great week and thanks for stopping by!
