Monday Reading (July 26th, 2010)

It's Monday! What are you reading this week? is a weekly event now hosted by One Persons Journey Through a World Of Books where we discuss our week of reading!

Currently Reading:
  • Boy Meets Boy by David Levithan - The new Let's Go Beyond Tolerance Blog and The Story Siren's upcoming LGBT week inspired me to finally start this book.  Really enjoying it so far, and I am going to have to restrain myself from packing the book with quotes!

Finished this week:
  • Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr - This was rather scary, but very very well done.  Melissa Marr writes the most gut-wrenchingly realistic YA - despite her books being about faeries!
  • Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick - Well written, but LUDICROUSLY DISTURBING.  Seriously, parents!  Don't let your kids anywhere near this book.  Until I can bring myself to write a review for this, read Aja's Bad Romance: YA and Rape Culture post


  1. I think I would really like Boy Meets Boy and Ink Exchange. I have not read Hush Hush mainly because of some of the things I have heard. Since most of my books end up on the classroom shelves if I do read it, it will be a borrowed book. Have a great week.

  2. You had a good reading week. I agree with you about Hush, Hush. The whole "romance" thing was disturbing. Here is my Monday Report. Happy reading!

  3. I want to read Rules Of Attraction. I will be interested in your hush hush review too.

    Have a great week :D

  4. I read the post Bad Romance: YA and Rape Culture. I agree with the post. Because of it, I have not gone anywhere near Hush, Hush. What is your rating for the book, just curious?

  5. I really didn't like Hush, Hush. And I don't like faeries, but I really liked Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchange. Have the third book in the series, but only can I not remember the name of it, I can't get past the first two chapters either.

    But oh, Boy Meets Boy! I did love that one, I felt happy reading that book!
