The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

I’m really liking this and am already 13% into the book. I got it from the library via Kindle after reading the sample Amazon offers. There is a new trend in dystopian, Earth invasion books, and I’m on board. The next book close to this one seems to be Angelfall and In the After.

How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff

Some people don’t like Daisy’s voice as she tells this story. I wanted to stop reading, but I each day I looked forward to reading more. I wanted to know what was going to happen to her and her cousins. It’s a different book that the cookie-cutter action stories that YA Lit has become. (Each one seems to start the same anymore, ya know?) I gave this a five star rating because it kept me interested and was just the right length for the sorted love story.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Delirium by Lauren Oliver

I have technically been reading this for months now, but I just cannot make myself get through it. I don’t know why either because Lauren Oliver has quickly become one of my favorite authors. I’m interested in the story and I want to read the whole trilogy (hint, hint, Santa) but I keep finding other books that catch my attention. I need to finish this and move on to the next books.

Insurgent by Veronica Roth

I also expect Santa to leave the last two books in the Divergent trilogy. I wasn’t that jazzed about Tris as a character in the first one (I know, I know) but by the end I was more interested in the whole story.

I know it’s been since October since I wrote one of these posts, so I hope to keep up now that I’m back on a good role with my book choices. This time next week will be Christmas Day so I wish you all a very happy holiday. May you find many books under the tree, and even more books on sale on Boxing Day.

Happy Reading and Happy Wednesday!

Mockingjay (Hunger Games #3) by Suzanne Collins.

I started reading this now that the second movie is coming out. I bought the set before I moved here in 2011, and after all the reviews of how it’s not as great as the other two, I put it aside. I still like Collins’s voice in the story. Aside from the whole bunch of characters that I have a hard time keeping up with, Katniss is a good, strong female. It’s not that I can really relate to her, it’s just written so I can feel as if I’m part of the story. That’s the kind of writing I think we all strive to create.

Also, I love how my phone wants to add “Collins” after I type out my name.

What did you recently finish reading?

Carrie by Stephen King

I still have to write my review for that, but heck, I still didn’t write my review for Divergent that I finished months ago.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I honestly have no idea what I’ll read next. I just pick up the ton of books I have and find one that catches my attention. I can say I’m going to read any number of books, but it will more than likely end up being something completely different.

Happy Reading and Happy Wednesday!

 

Monday Mashups for 13 May 2013

 

Monday Mashups are a collection of interesting book-related items that I’ve found recently.

The Allegiant cover is HERE!

Michigan has decided to continue reading Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl—The Definitive Edition on the 7th grade curriculum.

Reading Rainbow has tips for family reading in lieu of Family Reading Week.

See how a book is made when proofing a story.

The cover release for Once We Were is out.

There are a ton of links about The Great Gatsby not being that great of a film. I don’t care. It comes out on the May 17th here and after listening to some of the soundtrack, I’m all for it.

And finally, if you’ve not seen it, here is the trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire:

Happy Reading and Happy Monday!
