What did you read this weekend?

You know the drill…we want to know what you read this weekend!Here’s what’s keeping us up way past our bedtimes at the Book Hookup:

Anew - CoverAna:  I started Anew (The Archers of Avalon, Book One) by Chelsea Fine.  Scarlet wakes up in the forest and doesn’t remember a thing about her life.  For two years she’s been trying to piece it together but her memories just won’t come back.  Then she meets Gabriel Archer and, although she can’t explain why, she feels safe with him…feels a connection.  But it gets better, Gabriel has a brother named Tristan and he plays a part in this mystery too!  I’m really enjoying this book.  I like the writing style and, even though the author has given me plenty of hints, I still don’t know what will happen next!!

Jag: This past week I was really really sick and despite the fact that I spent a ton of time in bed, I didn’t read too much and I had trouble focusing. I reached for a book that felt comfortable, like an old friend. I read Twilight by Stephenie Meyer this week. This is one of the books I can read over and over and despite it’s less than stellar writing, I just love these characters.

Celeste: I read Intuition (Premonition #2) by Amy A. Bartol. This is an absolute indie gem and I read it cover to cover in one sitting. This book continued the journey of angels Evie and Reed, and their fight to keep Evie and so many others safe from the Fallen. There were twists and turns, heartache and fabulous romance, and even me kind of liking the bad guy!! And for that I loved it. Stay tuned for my full review.

Now it’s your turn….what did you read? We’d love to know :)

  1. I started Lord of the Flies

  2. Totally agree with you about Twilight… I’ve lost count on how many times I’ve read it; it’s such a good comfort book. Like an old pair of shoes or tshirt.

    Over the weekend I actually finished books – The Iron Queen and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (which I reviewed today). Both were outstanding, especially Miss Peregrine’s!

  3. This weekend I read two books. The first one was The Willows: Haven by Hope Collier. I enjoyed reading it and rated it three stars on Goodreads. You can read about it here: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/11953675-the-willows

    And then I started The light of Asteria byElizabeth Isaacs. Now THIS one, I wanna recommend. It starts out kinda weird and I skipped it on my list a few times, but then I checked Goodreads and it had a lot of five stars, so I decided it was time. And I almost finished it in one read, if I hadn’t had to take care of my kids and keep them fed and stuff. LOL. This book has lots of love written in such dept that you can feel it caress your soul. You feel loved simply by reading about it. Theres lots of supernatural stuff and strong friendship, deep feelings, beautiful settings etc. It’s the sort of book I feel I can’t write about, it would seem insufficient, so just trust me, read it. I even got it for free! And now I’ve started the sequel, Secret of the Keepers, and this one cost me all of 2.99 $. (Kindle) And its promising this one too.

    So yea, thats what I’ve been reading.

    And I read Hollowland by Amanda Hocking before The Willows. very glad I didn’t spend any money on that one, that was awful. Shallow, no strong feelings, awful writing and the way they keep killing like it’s no biggie puts me of. It was NOT worth my time. Blah.

  4. I read the most AMAZING book this past week! Grave Refrain by Sarah M. Glover. I love old black and white movies, and stories about ghosts. This story has both! Here is the summary from the back of the book. This explains it better than I could.

    Andrew Hayes, a brilliant but throubled musician, has been haunted since childhood by memories of his muse. One night from a San Fransico stage, he spots her, but before he can reach her, she vanishes from sight. Desperate to find her, he accepts a curious offer to stay in the city, moving into a dilapidated Victorian house undergoing renovations that stir up more than dust. Andrew’s life soon becomes even more chaotic with the arrival of martini-swilling ghosts and troupe of flesh-and-blood stoner spiritualists bringing bad tidings from the Grat Beyond. The dark side of his obsession creates visions both thrilling and menacing, and as he struggles to solve mysteries threatening him, Andrew discovers his life is repeating a refrain more deadly then he ever imagined.

    I loved this book, and adored the love story between Andrew and Emily. :)
