It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?, is a bookish meme hosted by One Person's Journey Through a World of Books, where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It’s a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list. So hop on over to Journey and join in...and leave a comment here so I can check out what you are reading.
Books I Read Last Week:
Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta (Goodreads)
I've been meaning to read this book for a while, and I saw it the other day on someone's blog, so I decided it was time to order it from the library, and it came within a couple of days. This was a quick, but really intense read. I absolutely loved how Francesca finally started to actually be herself. I think it's terrible when people pretend to be what they're not, it's terrible for that person and it's terrible for everyone around them. I think the best people out there are the ones who are their true selves. They're comfortable with who they are, and they don't change to fit the people around them. I also loved the Aussie slang. :D
- Fairy Tale by Cyn Balog (Goodreads)
- Take Me There by Susan Colasanti
- Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
I have to finish this book by Wednesday this week...luckily, I'm pretty close to being done already. I actually really like Great Expectations...although it is quite an intense read. You have to actually focus on every single word or you totally miss what you just read was actually about. Also...this book is making me sad...poor Pip, at least I didn't have 'Great Expectations' about what would happen to him...haha...did you catch that pun ;P if you didn't, just please humour me/don't judge me too harshly for my lame joke. lol
- Across the Universe by Beth Revis
And because I'm curious what are you reading?
