Monday Wrapup (162)

, 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.

Reviews for the past week:

The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White (Early Review)
"THE CHAOS OF STARS was an enjoyable read with an excellent use of mythology and secondary characters, but readers should be warned of the grating narrator."

The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly Black (Early Review)
"I think it could appeal more to others as the world behind the story is intriguing, but in the end it just didn't work for me personally as a I need a little more meat to my characters."

Kirsten's Book of the Week:

The Thinking Woman's Guide to Real Magic by Emily Croy Barker (Review)
"Although the world is impressively painted, the plot feels jerky at times, and the sometimes abrupt shifts in point of view are not able to prevent some sections from feeling overlong. However, overall, the plot is able to tie itself together in such a way that the inevitable climactic showdown is enjoyable, but clearly crafted for a sequel."
