We’re always looking for that next great read and we’d love to know what books ya’ll read over the weekend!
Here’s what’s on our night stands (and keeping us up way past our bedtimes) at the Book Hookup!
Ana: I’m reading Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare. For those of you who read and enjoyed Clockwork Angel (like I did), this story begins where the other left off. All of our favorite characters, Will, Jem and Tessa, are now faced with the possibility that Charlotte may be replaced as head of the institute and it’s up to them to ensure that doesn’t happen. Of course, this means another adventure into the underworld of London , more mysteries to solve and a bad guy to deal with. I’m really enjoying it so far and must admit that I fell right back in love with Will and Jem almost immediately! I’d forgotten how satisfying a heart-wrenching love triangle can be!
Jag: So after my VERY young adult read from last week I REALLY REALLY needed to um turn up the heat ifyaknowwhatImeanandIthinkyado I actually stumbled across this book trolling amazon and thought I’d give it a go. In Halfway to the Grave (Night Huntress) by Jeaniene Frost, half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother’s life. Then she’s captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unholy partnership. GAH! This book owns me this week…it’s got a fast paced storyline, a love/hate relationship, sexual tension like crazy and UNF! Need I say more? Ya didn’t think so RAWR!
Celeste: I have been reading Birthmarked by Caragh O’Brien. Two words: dystopian crack. Oh yes, my dystopian loving friends, this book is for you. Gaia Stone lives on the outside of the Enclave and is being trained to be a midwife by her mother. They must turn over the first 3 babies they deliver every month to the inner walls of the Enclave. Gaia’s parents get arrested, which in turn forces Gaia to question everything as she realizes the Enclave she serves does not have the best intentions. So good!! I’m going to be up late finishing this
So what did you read? We’d love to know!
