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).
I read an unusual amount of books this week: FIVE. I probably managed it because they were all YA, which tend to rather small compared with full-on adult fiction.
- Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs – Every time I start a Patricia Briggs book, I remember how much I adore her writing… and then I finish her books and promptly forget her awesomeness. But she is. Awesome, that is.
- The Glass Demon by Helen Grant – Very enjoyable – I am certainly going to be checking out some more Helen Grant novels.
- Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor – God, this was gorgeous! Very very very different take on your standard YA novel. Can’t wait to review it!
- Siren by Tricia Rayburn – Not bad. I wasn’t over the moon, but I think some people may love it.
- Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins – Solid middle-of-a-trilogy novel. Although if I had known what was coming in Mockingjay, I might have been more appreciative…
- Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins – The more I think about this book the more annoyed I get. Yes, it was great. But at the same time, WOW did it piss me off.
- Happy novels. After reading Mockingjay, I plan on only reading books that are either a) full of cheer, or b) from writers I adore so much that just looking at the cover makes me smile.
