It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between! D This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!

Even though I have piles and piles of books that I really need to read, I couldn't resist a trip to the library at the beginning of last week. I think it has more to do with the thrill of walking out of there with a huge stack of books for free than anything else. So some of these books are from the library, some are new e-book finds, and others are netgalleys.

Read/reviewed this week:

Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins

Ashfall by Mike Mullin (Review coming in September. Loved it!)

Currently Reading:

Camille by Tess Oliver

The Vespertine by Saundra Mitchell

Ready Player One by Ernest Kline

I'm really excited about this one! I love to play video games and I've read a few books that have blended that concept with the advancement of technology and how we use it in our lives. The 'Otherland' series by Tad Williams comes to mind. I loved those, and hope this one puts a new spin on things. Plus, in a world where everyone is so dependent on technology is it really such a stretch that something like this would eventually be possible? Maybe, but it's fun to go through that 'what if' process.

So there's my week in books! What are you reading?

Just finished Ashfall too and really enjoyed it. Love the Male POV. Hex Hall is a really fun book and love Hawkins' writing. Have a wonderful week!

Sheila Hex Hall Raising Demons is awesome but it's really left off on a cliffhanger :(

Oh man! Hex Hall was a FANTASTIC read, I just started Demonglass and I will finish it tonight. Also, looking forward to your review on The Vespertine, I have but haven't read it yet.
