It's Monday! What are you reading (53)

, 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:

Forever (Wolves of Mercy Falls, Book 3)Dead Reckoning (Sookie Stackhouse, Book 11)Misfit

Forever by Maggie Stiefvater (Review)
Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris (Review)
Misfit by Jon Skovron (Early Review)

First up this was Forever by Maggie Stiefvater. I LOVED Shiver and then was a little disappointed in Linger. I still had high hopes for Forever based on how great Shiver was. Unfortunately it just fell flat for me. If it hadn't of been for Cole and Isabel, I'm not really sure the book would have been much of anything at all. I realize some may disagree with me, but Forever just left a bitter taste in my mouth. Things would have been more satisfying if they had been stopped at Shiver.

Next was Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris. Unfortunately this book was another disappointment for the week. There really wasn't any focus and everything was just sort of muddled together. For the first time, I'm actually glad a series is going to be ending because I am starting to think that Sookie's shelf life has expired. I miss the passion and danger from the earlier books.

Finally I read Misfit by Jon Skovron. This was actually a pretty decent read. While I had a few complaints about it that you can see in my review, I did enjoy reading it. I look forward to seeing what happens in the next installment. At least I think there will be one based on how things ended. I hope so.

My Upcoming List:

Another Kind of Dead by Kelly Meding (Early Review)
Ward Against Death by Melanie Card (Early Review)
Working Stiff by Rachel Caine (Early Review)


  1. Last week I read "Mockingjay", "XVI", and Digital Devil Story: Warrior of the Demon City", all of which will be reviewed on my blog in this coming week. This week, I'm currently making my way through Wayne Barlowe's "God's Demon", Ernest Cline's "Ready Player One", and Teresa Frohock's "Miserere: an Autumn Tale." All of which are pretty awesome books so far!

  2. Sooooo envious that you got to read Working Stiff early!! Can't wait to read Rachel's new series!!

    Happy Reading!
