It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


It's Monday, What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, that is guaranteed to add to your reading list. 


Read Last Week:

I am in a bit of a slump. I think its the kind of slump that occurs when you read a book that strikes you hard, whether it is good or bad; it doesn't matter, it just made you feel something. I had that experience with Shotgun Lovesongs, and I was having a hard time finding a book that could follow it up. 

I did find a list on Flavorwire, Dark and Twisty Books for Gone Girl Fans, and I found one of the books at the library, checked it out, and promptly devoured it. 


Dare Me by Megan Abbott: Wow, this book sucked me in! I am definitely going to read more by the author. Review soon.

Reading This Week:

  

Paper Towns by John Green: Just 'cause I love his words.

The End of Everything by Megan Abbott: I hope it's as good as Dare Me!

  3. Hmmm I wonder, maybe I should put the Dare Me book onto my TBR list, if Nise liked it, I might as well.

  4. I've had that too, it can be hard to follow up a really good book. Hope you keep finding good reads. Paper Towns sounds good, I haven't read any John green yet.

    1. John Green is a must! Lol. My husband read Looking for Alaska and he really liked it. :)

      I think part of my problem with following up Shotgun Lovesongs is that I have Larry McMurtry on my mind. I think I am going to have to read The Last Picture Show just so I can move on. :)

  5. I still haven't read John Green, but The Fault in Our Stars is on my kindle. A couple bloggers I know say Paper Towns is their favorite - enjoy!

  6. I have not picked up a John Green novel yet, but he certainly has a large fan base, so I should pick up one soon. Looks like you have a good selection, so enjoy reading them this week.

I love hearing from people, don't be shy! I would love to hear what you think! I always reply back, although it takes me a bit longer these days due to the little guy.
