It’s Monday! What are you reading? 1/27/14 #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.

Here’s what I read last week:

rosie project

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
Contemporary Adult Fiction
My Goodreads Rating: 5/5 Stars
Don Tilman is oddly charming and socially challenged. He’s a genetics professor who never met an experiment he didn’t like. He’s starts the Wife Project was hilarious and sometime disastrous results. I loved this quirky little book so much that when I was only a quarter in, I searched online to see if this had been optioned for a movie yet. And of course it has been because I think this will be a fantastic hit! Crossing my fingers for Bradley Cooper as Don.  He would be absolutely perfect for this role!

city of ashes

The Mortal Instruments Series, Book 2: City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare
YA Fantasy
My Goodreads Rating: 5/5
I was a little nervous when I started this one and was hoping it would live up to how good The City of Bones is and I actually found myself liking this one even more! Lots of action, angst and more Magnus Bane.

the naturals

The Naturals, book 1 by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
YA Mystery
My Goodreads Rating: 4/5 Stars
This book reminds me of a little milder version of I Hunt Killers, and I really liked it. I was a little disappointed in who the “bad guy” was, but it still kept me guessing the whole time. This series has a lot of potential. Will definitely pick up the next book when it comes out.

wait for you

Wait for You by J Lynn (Jennifer L. Armentrout)
Contemporary NA
My Goodreads Rating: 4/5 Stars
This may be my favorite NA book that I have read so far.

faking it

Losing It #2: Faking It by Cora Carmack
Contemporary NA
My Goodreads Rating: 4/5 Stars
This is the second book in the Losing It series and it was a pretty good read. I like Carmack’s style of writing and these characters.

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

bomb hollow city

shatter meunravel mewhy we broke up

Bomb is STILL on my list to read but I would really like to get to the rest of these books this week. Shatter Me and Unravel Me (One of my favorite series EVER! Warner…. sigh) are rereads in anticipation for Ignite Me which comes out very, very soon and Why We Broke Up is my other Random Read for January.

Happy Reading!
