monday reading

In this weekly event hosted by One Persons Journey Through a World Of Books where we discuss what we’ve been reading this week (and, occasionally, what we haven’t).

Currently reading:

  • Moloka’i by Alan Brennert – Was back in 2007, I read Wendy’s review (Musings of a Bookish Kitty) of this book and added it to my wishlist.  In 2009, I stumbled upon it in a second-hand store.  And now, four years later, I’ve finally started it!  I’m only two chapters in but it is beautiful so far.  I went to Hawaii over the Christmas holidays, so a lot of the areas Brennert describes are still fresh in my mind.

Finished this week:

  • Beauty by Robin McKinley – Lovely book.  Expect a review in the next few weeks.
  • Lover Revealed by J.R. Ward – God, this was terrible.  Epically terrible.  I am starting to dread the rest of the series now…
  • The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong – I read this one in a day and LOVED IT.  It’s not quite as fantabulous as her Darkest Powers series, but it is still really really really amazing.  And, GOD, I had some many questions by the end of it!  I cannot believe we have to wait a whole year for the next book! Gahhh!
