It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (2)

This meme is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey and showcases the books we recently read, are currently reading, and are planning on reading soon!

I just finished re-reading Austen's Sense and Sensibility yesterday (it took me a while but you can't really speed-read Austen). Right now I have a few books on the go: Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood, and Persuasion (yes, I'm on an Austen kick right now!) Beautiful Creatures is good so far, although thicker than I expected, Oryx and Crake is just plain weird and unsettling, and Persuasion is another re-read.

As for upcoming reads, whenever I get a chance to make it down to the library, I hope to have the following books in my clutches:

The Dark Divine by Bree Despain
Forget You by Jennifer Echols
I was Jane Austen's Best Friend by Cora Harrison
Sleepless by Cyn Balog

What are you reading?


  1. I have Beautiful Creatures in my TBR-pile but have not started it yet. I have to be in the mood to read YA, I think :)

  2. I never could decide if I liked Oryx and Crake or not.

  3. I want to read all four of those last books--they all sound really good! Once you've read them you should write reviews.

  4. I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend is a book I'm dying to read; hope you get to the library so you can review it soon!

  5. I wish I was on a Jane Austin kick - so many that I have not read yet. I also would love to read this Atwood book.

    Have a super week :D

  6. I'm glad you are connected with Adele's blog now. I love going there every day to see the next 5 novels she reveals!


I love comments, so post away!
