It’s Monday! What Are You Reading, 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.
Other Than Reading...
It has been another week of changeable weather in Minnesota. One day I haul out the spring jacket, the next day it's back to the winter one. I am enjoying having more daylight at the end of the day but am still trying to catch up from the lost hour of sleep. We have three four-day weeks in a row coming up at work as we get Friday and Monday off over Easter and then have the following Monday for staff in-service before we begin our final quarter.
I am hoping to get a little extra reading time with a couple extra days off. I won't be traveling except for a few hours up to the Cities for an author event. A friend and I are taking that road trip next Saturday. I can't wait to take lots of pictures and meet authors I haven't met before.
Read Last Week
Flawed by Cecelia Ahern was a dystopian story set in a plausible near future. I enjoyed the main character and the story but hated the cliffhanger ending. My review will be posted on April 2.
Nightstruck by Jenna Black was a paranormal set in the present day. It was creepy and filled with tension. I liked that it was a normal girl who was caught in a very paranormal situation. This was another one with a cliffhanger ending. My review will be posted on April 6.
Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan gave A Tale of Two Cities a dystopian twist by setting it in a New York City divided into two magical camps - the Dark and the Light. Revolution is brewing and our heroine, who just wants to keep her head down and live, finds herself the poster child for both sides of the upcoming conflict. My review will be posted on April 9.
Mr. Fahrenheit by T. Michael Martin is an eARC from Edelweiss. It combines science fiction with a coming of age story and got a starred review at Booklist.
