It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (3)

It's Monday! What are you reading? is a weekly book meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey to share what books we have finished last week, are currently reading and planning to read for the rest of the week. 

Wow, it's been awhile since we did this meme! Anyway, summer vacation here ended two weeks ago and as usual, we've been busy as hell with school. But I try as much as I could to squeeze in a little time to read YA , especially now that I think it won't be long before projects and midterms give me barely any time for reading. 

Last week I finished:
Somebody To Love
Somebody To Love by Kristan Higgins - This is the third Kristan Higgins book I've read and I liked it! It's written in both main characters' POV which is nice and the atmosphere is perfect for a summer afternoon reading. (3.5/5)

What a Boy Needs
What a Boy Needs by Nyrae Dawn - It's the companion book to Nyrae Dawn's What a Boy Wants which I enjoyed because of the characters and the fact that it's written in male's perspective.  Both books have those in common plus the swoonworthy moments, but this one deals with heavier issues, which made me love it more. (4/5)

Something Like Normal
Something Like Normal by Trish Doller - This is one of the debuts I was highly anticipating this year. While it opened my eyes to the effects of war on soldiers, I have to admit that I was quite disappointed.  But this book has a deep and strong meaning, so I'm still encouraging everyone to read it. (3/5)

My Life Next Door
 My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick - Now this is my favorite read of the week! I have a lot to say about it so watch out for a review to be posted sometime within the week. :)

Currently Reading:

What I plan to read:
The OpportunistDefiance (Significance, #3)
            The Opportunist by Tarryn Fisher - I've been hearing great things about this one and just waiting until I'm in the mood to read it.
Defiance (Significance #3) by Shelly Crane - This series is AWESOME. It's one of my favorites so I can't wait to delve into Maggie and Kaleb's world once again.

  1. Looks like a nice selection of books. My favorite read last week was Chi's Sweet Home, Volume 1 by Kanata Konami. Please come see what else I'm reading.

  2. I loved Anna Dressed in Blood so I hope you're enjoying it too! I haven't read any of the other books you mentioned, but I love the cover for The Opportunist.

  3. The premise of Something Like Normal sounds very interesting -- it's a shame it proved to be a let-down for you.

  4. The Opportunist cover looks gorgeous. This is the first I've heard of the book.
    Have a great week!

  5. I want to read Somethiing Like Normal and My Life Next Door. I have good things. Happy Reading!

    My It’s Monday

  6. I liked Anna Dressed in Blood - but boy was it strange. Definitely going to be reading the sequel, so I guess it made me crave it a little, huh? :)
