It’s Monday! What are you reading? June 9, 2013
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 Dolce Bellezza for the month of June.
I did a fair amount of reading the last two weeks, but I also got myself into a couple of new (old) TV shows. At least they have an ending?
The truth is that I want to understand more about the Star Trek universe, so I decided to start at the beginning. Let me tell y’all something – I haven’t really ever watched any TV from before the 90s. Even when I watch some of the early episodes of Buffy, I scoff at the effects. They are even more hilarious in Star Trek: The Original Series. I’m glad it was made, cuz I enjoy sci fi, but it’s amusing at the same time.
Books completed last week:
Wither – Lauren DeStefano: I found that I didn’t like this as much the second time I read it. Probably because I have since read the Delirium series and that’s my new standard for YA dystopia. Still, a good novel.
Fever – Lauren DeStefano: After finishing Wither, I jumped right into the sequel. I liked this, but it made me really anxious!
The Reincarnationist – MJ Rose: I received Seduction, the fifth book in this series, as an ARC. Since I haven’t read any of the other books in the series, I decided to start at the beginning.
Books I’m reading this week:
The Boleyn King – Laura Andersen ~ Page 50: This one came in the mail a few weeks ago as an ARC for the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program. I decided to read it for Royal Reviews as well, since it would fit well there.
Emma – Jane Austen ~ 25%: No Emma progress.
The Panem Companion – V. Arrow ~ 23%: No progress.
