This is a weekly meme run by Book Journey!
Post the books completed last week, the books you are currently reading, and the books you hope to finish this week.
Mailbox Monday is a weekly meme that was created by Marcia at The Printed Page, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring meme (details here). It is hosted at Metro Reader for the month of February.
The lesson I learned this time around is…don’t read other YA books directly after reading ones you really loved.
Books completed last week:
Fallen – Lauren Kate: This was a reread for me. I should have just read a summary on Wikipedia or something, because I liked it even less the second time around. It’s too bad, I hate when my opinion of a book goes down when I reread!
Torment – Lauren Kate: This is the second book in the Fallen series, and it was better than the first one. I still have mixed feelings about this series. I’m kind of bored with it.
Books I’m reading this week:
A Fatal Grace – Louise Penny ~ Page 14: We’ve got a mystery week coming up on Royals soon, so I’m reading this one for it. I adore Louise Penny!
Jane Eyre – Charlotte Bronte ~ Page 223: A very small amount of progress in Jane Eyre this week, but progress nonetheless!
Books I acquired this week:
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest – Stieg Larsson: I was waiting for this one to come out in paperback before buying it. I prefer paperback to hard cover if I have a choice.
What I watched this week:
- Fashion Police, The Soup, Chelsea Lately, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, 1 girl 5 gays, The Ellen Degeneres Show
- Six Feet Under
- The Challenge: Battle of the Exes
- Modern Family
- Web Soup
