It’s Monday again!!

We were able to sneak in some reading time this weekend!
Were you?

You know how this goes…
we’ll show you ours if you show us yours!!

Tell us what you’re reading!!

Ana:  I started reading Touch(Denazen #1) by Jus Accardo.  Deznee Cross, Dez for short, loves nothing more than to do things t0 make her father angry.  After all, it seems to be the only way to get his attention.  What better way to make him mad than to bring home a boy she met in the woods?  Well, she’s the one in for a surprise.  It seems that her dad knows this strange boy…turns out that he’s kept him prisoner at his “corporation” for years because he’s special…he can kill with a touch.  So now, Dez is afraid of her father and becoming attached to Kale and on the run.  I’m enjoying this book very much.  There’s adventure and romance and some humor as well.  Stay tuned for the full review!!

Christina: This weekend I started The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa. After Jag praised it so highly last week and a few commented on how great it was, I had to check out what all the hype was about. I’m thrilled to report that so far, I’ve been held completely spellbound. It’s a different take on dystopian and vampires. In a world ravaged by plagues, the vampires became the masters and humans became cattle (food source). Most gave in to this freely, becoming “registered,” and in return for a monthly bloodletting, they’re allowed to live and were given food. The same can’t be said for the “unregistered.” Those people have refused to become food slaves and thus live a grimy life filled with constant struggles and starvation. Our protagonists, Allie, has chosen the unregistered route, and boy is she fierce. Still, I can’t help but bite my fingernails, and I feel like I’m waiting for the rug to be ripped from beneath her. Something bad is lurking just around the corner. Also, holy hell is that cover not made of pure awesome?!

Celeste: I read Moonlight Mayhem (Spellbound #2) by Sherry Soule. This picked up right where the first book left off so I dove right in. Shiloh Ravenwolf is a witch. In fact, she comes from a long line of witches and is the 13th daughter which means she is there to fulfill a prophecy: her duty is to protect the innocents from all the paranormal activity going on in the town of Whispering Pines, since there is an entrance to Sheol there. While the first book dealt with ghosts and demons, this book deals with another supernatural being…..you’ll just have to read to find out!

  1. I finished Pretty Amy and started Fragile

    • Ooooh, how was Pretty Amy? I love its cover. I’m not sure I’ve heard of Fragile, I’ll have to go do some investigating.

      Thanks for stopping by and sharing!

    I finished the first book in the fallen series and have started the second. I don’t know how I feel about this series because half the time I have no idea what is going on. Actually you really get to know what the lead character is thinking and feeling because you feel it right along with her (she really does not have a clue either). The one emoation she has that I wish I could share is the spark with Alex. I am sure I will continue reading this series because I like that so many books are in the series and I do not have to wait 6-12 months to read the next one.

    • Is this the Fallen series by Lauren Kate? I’ve heard pretty mixed reviews as far as the series go. It seems like people are either one side of the spectrum or the other- completely love or absolutely hate it. I’d be curious to your thoughts about the rest of the series.

      Happy reading and thanks for stopping by! :D

  3. I started and finished ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ in one day. One of the best books I’ve read this year. So touching.

    • It was one of the first books I read this year. I still catch myself picking it up and thumbing through it, or remembering some of my favorite quotes. *sigh* Such a good book. ♥♥♥

      Thanks for sharing!

  4. I’m about two years behind, but I started Falling in Love with English Boys by Melissa Jensen. It kind of reminds me of the fun, frothy, and addictive Meg Cabot books.

  5. I read Adopted Reality this weekend for a review, the author is Laura Dennis; my review can be read on Amazon and Goodreads. Anyone who dealt with a manic episode or depression should read it, including self harming adolescent girls….it’s a realistic memoir. I rated it 4 stars.
