What I’m Reading This Week

What I’m Reading This Week

After taking a list challenge (if you haven’t checked out List Challenge, you  need to!), I sadly realized that I was way behind on my YA reading. As I have plenty of unread YA books sitting on the bookshelves in my office, I made a command decision to read only YA this week! (and see how many times I could use YA in one paragraph)

   

Never, Never (pts 1 & 2) by Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher

Summary: Best friends since they could walk. In love since the age of fourteen. Complete strangers since this morning. He’ll do anything to remember. She’ll do anything to forget.

I’ve been on a huge Colleen Hoover kick the last 10 days or so. I’ve read Maybe SomedayMaybe Not: A NovellaHopelessLosing Hope: A Noveland Finding Cinderella: A Novella (this one is free!). I keep going back to Maybe Someday because #oneofmyfavoritebooksever! I’m hoping the gentleness of Hoover partnered with the craziness of Fisher will be a fantastic read!

 

Paper Towns by John Green

Summary: Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificent Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back into his life—summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge—he follows. When their all-nighter ends and a new day breaks, Margo has disappeared. But Q soon learns that there are clues—and they’re for him. Embarking on an exhilarating adventure to find her, the closer Q gets, the less he sees the girl he thought he knew.

I’m not sure why I haven’t read this one yet. I’ve had it for a while, I know it’s good, and it’s already been made into a movie. There’s been some debate as to whether I should watch the movie before I read the book. Perhaps I’ll save PT for the end of the week and catch the movie first. Any opinions?

 

Daughter of Smoke and Bones by Laini Taylor

Summary: Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky. In a dark and dusty shop, a devil’s supply of human teeth grown dangerously low. And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war. Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she’s prone to disappearing on mysterious “errands”; she speaks many languages–not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she’s about to find out. When one of the strangers–beautiful, haunted Akiva–fixes his fire-colored eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?

My book sister, Michelle, loves this book. I mean loves. She might agree to have Laini Taylor’s baby if asked. I have to admit, I started reading this a couple of months ago and loved it. But, I put it down and found myself distracted by hot guys with tattoos on motorcycles. MC books just suck you in. But, I digress. So, yes, I’m going back to the beginning of Daughter of Smoke and Bone and will probably read the second book in the series this week as well.

  1. So true. And if you’d read anything Laini Taylor’s ever written, you’d want to have her baby, too. I just re-read her novella for the third time. Paper Towns is hilarious, FYI.

    1. Are you talking about the novella you sent me? Where in the series does that fall? Also, how many babies do you think she wants? We could have a problem.

Find this post interesting? Let's start a discussion.
