It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (89)

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books

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.

Well, it has been a very long time since my last Monday post, but I'm trying to get back into the habit again, so I'm doing one this week! ;D These are from about the last week and half rather than just last week. ;)


Books I Read Last Week:
I went on a bit of a novella kick, and Radiant was one of the ones that I read! I'm actually so glad that I read this one before Boundless because it actually filled in a lot! :D I also liked that this novella alternated between Clara's POV and Angela's...it was interesting! ;D

I absolutely LOVED Breathless! I wasn't sure what to expect from this one since it's after the Firelight trilogy...and it's from Az's POV, but I loved it! I'm actually kind of hoping Sophie Jordan continues with it somehow because it was awesome!

LOVED this one! :D I'm going to keep quiet about all of the details in this one because it'll spoil a big surprise for readers who are new to this series, but I will tell you that it involves Will's parents...and it was AMAZING! I loved Will's mom, Madeleine..so much, and I really enjoyed this novella! I'm so glad that Courtney Allison Moulton decided to tell this story! :D

I'm totally not ashamed to admit that I'm a HUGE Cole fan, so I loved Neverfall! It was also told in alternating timelines, with flashbacks and such like Everneath was, so that was pretty interesting. :) It's nice to get to know more about Cole, and to also get a hint at what I can expect in Everbound...I can't wait until my preoder shows up now!!!!

I received Crushed for review a little while ago, and I am so glad that I read it...it was AMAZING! I absolutely loved Fletch, and I thought that the author did a fabulous job with her male narrator...a lot of the time teenage male narrators can be a huge miss, but Dawn Rae Miller did it perfectly! I'll refrain from saying too much because I'm going to be posting a full review for this one, but I just have to say that I absolutely loved this story. I think Fletch is probably going to stay one of my favourite male narrators for quite some time! I definitely recommend checking this one out! ;D

I loved the first book of Lesley's that I read, Once Every Never, so I've been wanting to read this one for a while, and I loved it! I loved how Lesley Livingston wove different elements of mythology into this story, and how she added a magical element...I also adored the characters! Mason was so awesome, and Fenn...oh my goodness (hehe I almost just wrote "oh my goodreads"...I may just start using that ;D haha)...I loved him!!! So, sexy. ;) I definitely recommend this one too! :D


Reading Now:
I finished the fourth book, A Feast for Crows, over my Christmas break and started on this one and I am LOVING it so far...I finally get my Jon Snow, Daenerys and Tyrion again! ;D This is going to be one I kind of set aside for a while though because it's so long, but I do plan to come back to it whenever I get the chance!

Yup! I totally had to run out and get a copy of Boundless this week! I'm about a third through it already, but I had to start on some school books, so I put it down for a bit. :P Once I finish my school books though...I plan to pick it up again and keep going until I'm finished! :)

I've only read a few chapters of Override so far, but I wanted to get it started before I participate in the Rockstar Book Tours tour in a week or so. I'm going to try and post my review some time around the tour so I wanted to have it finished, especially since this is a sequel I've been really looking forward to! ;D I already have my finished copy ordered, and the last book in the trilogy, too...so obviously I'm a little excited. :P haha Also...just three chapters in and I'm already loving it!

Oh, Jack...I'm reading On the Road for my English class on Reading American Technologies. We're reading things that all have to do with cars. I don't mind it so far actually...I just wish the text were bigger! It always feels like it takes so long to read books with tiny text...and usually all the editions that profs order have tiny text. :P It stinks...but at least the story's good.

Ditto on the tiny text for this one! :P Waste Heritage is a book I'm reading for my Proletarian Literature class. It's a bit dry right now, but I'm hoping that I'll get more interested the further I get into the story.


Books I Want to Read This Week:

NONE! I have to finish some of the ones I'm currently reading first. :P haha

-------------------------------------------------------------------

So, I spent the last little bit getting caught up on some awesome novellas, and I read two amazing books! I've also definitely started quite a few books in the last week....hopefully by next Monday I'll be finished a couple of them. ;P

And what are you reading???

    1. haha well you can always read them all, too. ;) I'd recommend all of them! ;D

      Thanks for sharing your link, I'll be sure to check it out! :D

  3. oh yay! I'm so happy you're doing these again... maybe I will too. What a great batch of novellas. I really really need to do that. There are a ton I want to read, also short stories, delirium and birthmarked and unearthly are the three I really want to read. Maybe this week?

    What a great week of reading you have though! I really want to read On The Road at some point. I know what you mean about tiny text though. I also hate that scratchy paper a lot of academic books or classics have.

    AND BOUNDLESS. Can't wait to read it. I guess I better pick up Radiant soon then!

    1. YAY! I'm so glad that you did, too! :D They were all so awesome! And they made me feel really productive! ;D I'd totally recommend it. It's a definite perk that they don't take up a tonne of time, too. :)

      Once you do you'll have to let me know what you think! YES! The scratchy paper does suck...thankfully these ones aren't using super scratchy paper...and at least it's not the super thin kind that I always rip. :S haha

      Eeek! So glad your copy came!!! :D Good idea! ;D

    2. hehe oh Boundless didn't come yet, hopefully in another day or two, I was just excited by it in your post and I can't wait to read it myself :D But now I better pick up Radiant first. Whoops!

    3. Oh, I thought you said it came. :P Hopefully it'll be there soon! haha Ya, Radiant first! :)

  4. I didn't read Radiant and I think I should have before reading Boundless. But it was still amazing. I really want to read Neverfall but I heard it makes Cole into a different person and I'm nervous for that because I love his badassery. I don't want him to be all gushy and cheesy. Hope you love Boundless!

    1. It might have made a bit more sense if you're read it first, but I think most of what went on during it was explained enough in Boundless to figure it out without having read Radiant. Radiant just kind of makes it more clear. :)

      I still thought Cole was super badass! I understood the way that he felt about Nikki a little more, and what his initial obsession with her had to do with...but I don't think it made him less of a badass. He did show a bit of his more musical and romantic sensitive side in his thoughts every once and a while though, but he wasn't gushy and cheesy...so I think you'll like it. :)

      So far I am...and hopefully I'll keep loving it! :P haha

  5. I HAVE to read Boundless soon!! I just finished Hallowed and I'm just being washed over with feels. Hope you love it! :) Also, I'm really liking the new background!
