It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? (52)


IM  Mon Reading Button PB to YA

It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys where you can recap what you’ve read this week while planning ahead on what to read next! Jen at Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee & Ricki at Unleashing Readers added their own twist by focusing on kidlit, from picture books up to YA.

Clicking the covers will take you to the Goodreads page, where you can add it to your “To Read” list!

The last week I read:

MG/YA Books

Fault Line  Openly Straight

Fault Line: A heart-wrenching view of rape from the point of view of the boyfriend of the girl who was raped. This book will spark some series discussions among people who read it. I’m eager to read more of Christa Desir’s writing.

Openly Straight: Everyone has a label that defines them, and Rafe felt like the label of being “gay” defined him above all else. This was such a great story about identity and self-awareness.


Across the Universe (Across the Universe #1)

Across the Universe: I enjoyed the story, but I did not care for the audio. The narrators were not very good with varying voices, and it annoyed me the whole time that Amy’s voice was kinda harsh, but when Elder’s narrator was reading his chapter and had to speak for her, he did this stereotypical high girly voice. If I continue this series, I will read rather than listen.

This week I plan to read/continue:

MG/YA Books

Tiger Lily  Perfect Lies (Mind Games, #2)  Rules of Attraction (Perfect Chemistry, #2)


The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom

The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom: Started this last week, and I’m loving it so far! The character’s voices are awesome.

I can’t wait for this week of reading! What about you?

  1. Hero’s guide to saving your kingdom looks particularly nice. Haven’t tried any audiobook yet, for the reasons that you just shared. Maybe this year. Have a great reading week!
