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.!
Have you met Raych from books i done read? If not, you need to get over there, tout suite, and meet her. She’s genius and bust-your-windpipe funny and so where I am in my reading life right now it’s eerie. Scary eerie. Except I haven’t had the guts to read Sweet Valley High Confidential yet, so she has that up on me. The girl? She’s got the balls. Also, she’s read A Monster Calls too and has all the loves for it just like me. She’s teh awesome.
So, as you may have gathered, I am still having a hard time with the reading. I fully expected to slow down, what with it being summer, the kid out of school, lots of time spent in the garden, etc, but I did not expect it to grind to a halt. I haven’t finished a book in over a week. Something must be done! What? I don’t know. I keep picking up books, getting interested, only to loose steam about 1/3 of the way through. Its gut wrenching, that’s what it is. I need the sustenance of the written word! I think I’m going to have to pull a Raych (did you READ her post? Go, do it.) and read some YA. I need the whizz bang pop of some nicely written YA. Any recs? Quick reads. I needs them.
Here, discussion topic. What is the best YA you’ve read this year? Go. I need to know. Fast of pace, slight romantical thoughts, give me what was good so I can go and read it too.
Audio. Still slogging (with great pleasure) (snort) (that’s a wry snort) (because, well, pleasure and Outlander? Come on!) (It’s funny!) through Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. Geez louise, but I adore Jamie. I’m almost halfway through, so look for me to be listening to this for the rest of the month, if not longer. I’m off to the best next week, so I doubt I’ll have much time for listening then. Hmm…guess I’d better try to wrap it up this week!
