Monday Reading (Sept. 5th, 2011)

In this weekly event hosted by One Persons Journey Through a World Of Books where we discuss what we've been reading this week (and, occasionally, what we haven't).

Currently reading:
  • Beastly by Alex Finn - Upon reading this I came to the following realisation: the Beast really is a jerk. I mean, yeah, I know he was mean to start off with - hence the curse - but I always just thought he just made a stupid mistake. Seeing everything from his POV? It has really changed my perspective!
  • State of Wonder by Ann Patchett - Now that the main character has arrived in Brazil, this book is really picking up!

Finished this week:
  • Hourglass by Claudia Gray - Wow, did I ever dislike this book. It has been a long time since I've loathed characters as much as I did Hourglass'. Read my review here.
  • Academy 7 by Anne Osterlund - I LOVED this book. My only regret is that there isn't a second or a third in the series for me to pick up! This book was an absolute joy to read: YA Science Fiction with a fantastic relationship at its core. Can't recommend it enough.

Up next from my TBR Pile of DOOM:
  • Maybe some Sarah Dessen? I bought Last Chance a while ago as an introduction to her writing. I hope she's as good as everyone makes her out to be!


  1. I recently was on a Sarah Dessen streak! I really enjoy her writing style and they are just relaxed reads. I really like your header.

  2. I am going to look into Academy 7 for my library. I have a friend who loved State of Wonder. Both had better go onto my TBR pile. Argh! So many books, so little time.

  3. Nice selection of books. Is Beastly the book the film was made from?

    P.S. I'm your BBAW interview partner. I emailed you and got no reply. :-)
