It's Monday! What are You Reading?


It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date. This post is for sharing what I read last week, what I am currently reading, and what I plan to read.


What I Read Last Week

I thought I did pretty well sticking to my planned list, but maybe I should have consulted my post. I didn't realize until I was more than halfway through The Cad and the Co-Ed, that I was supposed to read Book 2 - The Player and the Pixie. Since these are companion books, it worked out, but I definitely deserve a face-palm for that one. 

My favorite read was Daughter of the Pirate King (you can enter to win a copy here), but I also loved At First Blush. I have a penchant for sort of light and fluffy contemporaries and this one delivered in spades. One book that surprised me was The Moment of Everything. I selected this audiobook on a whim, because I needed a book with a cat on the cover for my PopSugar Reading Challenge, and was really pleased with how much I enjoyed it. 


What I Am Currently Reading

I am currently listening to Roman and reading Geekerella. I just started Geekerella, but I began listening to Roman yesterday on my drive back from Syracuse. The Cold Fury books are always pleasing to me, and I am throughly enjoying Roman. 




What I Plan to Read

Mackintosh's last book was a solid 5 star read for me, so I am pretty excited to read I See You. Keeping the Moon finally became available on Overdrive and it's the only published Dessen book I have not read. You can say I was pretty happy to be able to check this one out. When Dimple Met Rishi is getting a lot of hype and I have heard good buzz on Alex, Approximately. I hope this will be a stellar reading week.

    1. I have a long commute, and I could sleep or read. I choose reading! It makes the bus, train, shuttle ride more bearable. =) I hope you have a great week too!

  2. The Moment of Everything sounds so good! I need to read it. I have also always wanted to read Sarah Dessen. I have to get on that! Have a great week!

    1. I was really surprised by how much I liked The Moment of Everything. Maybe it was the whole idea of this woman with her life in flux with this mysterious love story thread. It had a bunch of great characters too. I really love Dessen. My three top picks by her would be: Just Listen, Along for the Ride, and the Truth About Forever. She just has a knack for writing a contemporary YA book that hits that perfect balance. Hope your week is great too!

  4. Netflix has ignored my request for Dimple and Rishi *cries* and I'm really excited about Alex, Approximately. I haven't LOVED Sarah Dessen's last couple books, so I'm hoping to love this one.

    1. I am pretty excited about Dimple and Rishi. It looks like EXACTLY my kind of book. Dessen is on my short-list (with Jennifer E Smith, Morgan Matson, and Kasie West), who always gives me the type of YA contemporary romance I love. I am keeping my fingers crossed that NetGalley grants my wish for her new one.
