It’s Monday! What are you reading? 9/9/13

IMWAYR

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

I’m back! The beginning of this school year has been a whirlwind and I am just getting under my feet. I wasn’t finding the time to read at the end of August, but I’ve since managed to read a few books to share with all of you.

Here’s what I’ve read during the past 2 weeks:

dreamthieves

The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle #2) by Maggie Stiefvater
Scholastic Press, September 27, 2013
YA Fantasy
My Goodreads Rating: 5/5 Stars
I was lucky enough to read an ARC of The Dream Thieves on Net Galley. I really want to write a review of this one, but have been struggling to find the words to describe this awesome, thought provoking book.

winger

Winger by Andrew Smith
Simon & Schuster, 2013
YA Realistic Fiction

Pretty good coming of age story, but not sure what all the fuss is about.

left drowning

Left Drowning by Jessica Park
Skyscape, 2013
New Adult
My Goodreads Rating: 4/5 Stars
Interesting story with intertwining plot lines… Still not as good as Flat Out Love.

Funny and cute story by a favorite author.

the transfer

The Transfer: A Divergent Story (Divergent 0.1) by Veronica Roth
Katherine Tegan Books, 2013

My Goodreads Rating: 5/5 Stars
Four’s Choosing Ceremony and initiation. LOVED.

raft

The Raft by S.A. Boden
Feiwel and Friends, 2012
YA Adventure
My Goodreads Rating: 4/5 Stars
Suspenseful – held my attention until the very end.

My favorite read of the week….

I think The Dream Thieves is so well written and interesting. There were so many times where I went back and reread parts and wished I had a paper copy so I could underline passage after passage. I cannot wait to see where the series goes next. I also really liked The Transfer, even though it was only 30 pages long. I will read any story with these characters.

Here’s what I plan to read this week: (Click on the cover for more info from Goodreads)
