It's Monday: What are you reading? (17)

It's Monday: What are you reading? is a weekly meme from BookJourney.

I read two YA books:
Uncommon Criminals (Heist Society #2), Ally Carter (*****) See my review in the post below.
Delirium, Lauren Oliver (*****)
I only give this two stars because I don't like dystopian stories. I haven't since I was forced to read Brave New World and 1984. It's for this reason that I haven't read The Hunger Games. So read and enjoy; I just couldn't.
[Side Note for my Librarian Readers: despite the fact that I didn't enjoy this book, I do think it lends itself to a great book talk.] 

 I am reading: 
Devil's Cub, Georgette Heyer
The Invention of Hugo Cabret, Brian Selznick

I will be reading:
My Optimistic Book Club is reading Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs by Molly Harper. This is such a fun/funny series. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a good laugh and a light read. And as soon as I pick them up from the library, I'll be reading Sorcery and Cecelia or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot by Patricia Wrede (which I decided I must read totally based on the title alone) and Working Stiff by Rachel Caine (I loved her Weather Warden series, so I'm looking forward to giving this one a shot).



  1. Everybody seems to be getting Working Stiff these days. New follower. Come visit me over at Livre De Amour-Books of Love. Have a 500 follower giveaway going on. So come visit.

  2. Visiting from the Book Journey linky. I like seeing what other people read.
