It's time to talk about what we've been reading again! This wonderful meme was first begun by Sheila at Book Journey and the Picture Books to YA version started by the ladies at Teach Mentor Texts.
So, if you remember, last week my goal was to finish 3 of the huge books I was reading. Well, guess what? I actually did it! I finished:
The Book of Blood and Shadow by Robin Wasserman. Not a huge fan of this one. The plot was simply too unbelievable and I didn't care for any of the characters. It did keep me engaged enought that I wanted to find out what happened, though, so take that for what it's worth.
City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. I liked this one much better on reread. Jace didn't seem as much of a jerk to me this time and the plot seemed less recycled. Still not crazy about the series, though, and I'm not sure if I will ever read City of Ashes.
Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan. Ok, this one I LOVED. Boy, what an ending. The characters are all fabulously vivid (especially the protagonist), the plot is mysterious in all the best ways, and I can't wait until the next book in the series comes out (which might be a while since this book isn't even published until September). Highly recommended, although it took me something like 5 months to actually finish the book. Shame on me!
I am currently reading:
The White Darkness by Geraldine McCaughrean
The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily M. Danforth
Red Glove by Holly Black
The FitzOsbornes at War by Michelle Cooper
LOVE The White Darkness.
I think I will be reading The Miseducation of Cameron Post until I die.
I hope to finish at least two of those books and start on:
Keeping the Castle by Patrice Kindle
Postcards from No Man's Land by Aidan Chambers
Starters by Lissa Price
