It's Monday! What are you Reading?






This weekly meme is hosted by Book Journey. What you do is list the books you read last week, and then list all of the books you plan to read this coming week.

What I read last week:

Lord of the Flies, by William Golding - A disturbing, but overall powerful and enjoyable YA classic. I wrote a review last week.

The Angels' Share, by Rayme Waters - A promising debut novel with powerful writing, but the story faltered due to what I saw as a lack of focus. My review is here.

*Make sure to check out my giveaway!*

What I'm currently reading:

The Archaeologists, by Chris Lee

What I plan to read next:

A Storm of Swords, by George R. R. Martin - Book 3 of Martin's massive series is probably the last one I will get to read by the end of the summer. I've heard it's the best, and I'll see if it matches the hype.

  5. I still haven't read The Lord of the Flies though it is so popular as a YA classic. I hope you enjoy A Clash of Kings. I probably won't get to read it this year but maybe I'll surprise myself. I'm certainly enjoying reading A Game of Thrones so far and I like the TV series.

    1. Oops, I meant to say that I hope you enjoy A Storm of Swords. I still get books two and three mixed up for some reason.

  6. I read Lord of the Flies at school, definitely creepy disturbing. I haven't made a start on the Game of Thrones books but I love the TV series. Have a great week and happy reading :)
