It’s Monday! What Are You Reading This Week? is a weekly event to list the books finished last week, the books currently being read, and the books to be finish this week. It was created by J.Kaye’s Book Blog, but is now being hosted by Sheila from One Person’s Journey Through a World of Books!
Happy Memorial Day! I hope everyone has safe, happy weekend. Don’t forget to thank a veteran! Give them some mad love.
I have been in a slump for, well, it feels like about 2 months now. I put down over 5 books last week, unfinished, something I absolutely HATE to do. It’s unheard of!
Then, oh then, a miracle appeared in my mailbox Friday. A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness. I read it that night, in one sitting, and oh. Oh, what an amazing experience that was. I don’t want to say any more now, I hope to give it a proper review soon, but oh, how I loved it.
Before I started A Monster Calls, I was struggling through Graveminder by Melissa Marr. Since I paused it to read A Monster Calls, I figured I would go back to it. Suddenly it was so much better! A Monster Calls cures reading slumps! I managed to down almost 200 pages Saturday. My daughter is having a sleep over, so I haven’t had much time to read since, but I hope to finish it today. Hurray for holidays!
I was in the midst of The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness when my iPod finally died. The “genius” at the “Genius Bar” at the Apple store informed me there was no fixing it AND it was out of warranty. Don’t that just figure! They are replacing it for half price though, so I guess I can’t complain TOO much. (Even though it was only a year old.) I hope it comes in soon because I am going through some serious iPod withdrawal. *sigh*
Next up? Ship Breaker by Paolo Bagigalupi. I am beyond excited for this one. I just hope this cure holds out.
How was your reading this week? Have any big plans for some holiday reading?
