It's Monday! What are you reading (48)

, by Kt Clapsadl






It's Monday! What Are You Reading, hosted by Book Journey, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.






Here's what I read this past week:


On the Edge (The Edge, Book 1)XVIPatricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson: Moon Called Volume 1 TP






On the Edge by Ilona Andrews (Review)
XVI by Julia Karr (Review)
Mercy Thompson: Moon Called Vol 1 (Review)


I absolutely love Ilona Andrew's Kate Daniels series, so I knew I would have to try out her Edge books. She has such a great sense of humor and snark that comes across so well in her books. I'm happy to say I enjoyed On the Edge as well. It is an interesting world with magic and plenty of rules to go along with it. Love the tough as nails heroine who gets softened up a little bit by the hero in the end, but still remains her own person.

XVI was a horrific look into a society that preys on young girls. At sixteen they become prime targets for sex and if anything goes wrong (rape, death, etc) the media plays it off as just another "sexteen." It really was horrifying and made me so angry while reading it. I cannot wait to see what happens in the next book!

My Upcoming List:

Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance
Grave Dance by Kalayna Price (Early Review)
Dead Iron by Devon Monk (Early Review)

  3. XVI sounds so intense! I honestly didn't realize that it was such a graphic topic, but I can totally see how it made you angry. I haven't even read it, and just thinking about it makes me angry! I'll definitely be checking that one out!

    I hope you have an awesome week! Happy Reading! :D
