Monday Reading 3

It’s Monday! What are you reading this week? is a weekly event now hosted by One Persons Journey Through a World Of Books where we discuss our week of reading!

Recently Abandoned:

  • The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski – 275 pages in and I am giving up.  Even though I enjoyed the first 150-so pages quite a bit, I did not sign up for a re-telling of Hamlet.  I feel rather cheated.  (Oh, and a lot of the opinions about dogs in this?  Kinda bizarre.)

Finished this week:

  • Ill Wind by Rachel Caine – Quite enjoyed, and have a feeling the sequel will be even better.
  • The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner – BLAH.  I know this book is worshipped by most YA bloggers, but I really couldn’t see the attraction.  It felt like a bad Indiana Jones rip-off… *hides*
  • Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles – Bloody brilliant.  I read this in a single go and adored it.  I thought it was so much better than Perfect Chemistry (which I enjoyed) and totally rec it for YA fans!
