Reading

If you're a writer... then you probably love to read. Even if you're not a writer, you still my love it. I been a huge lover of books and reading since I was small.

I just finished reading CINDER by Marissa Meyer. I thought it would be fun, but I didn't think I'd love it. Guess what? I did! Having another Cinderella story may sound lame, but this one is anything but! I honestly couldn't put the book down. It's definitely one of my favorites!

So... What are you reading?

I LOVE to read, Leigh! I do. I don't read much fiction--there's a laugh, considering I write fiction--but I love reading true stories and biographies of peoples struggles to overcome things in life!

BTW, mentioned you on my blog today! :)

I just started "All That Mullarkey" by Sue Moorcroft. Don't know if I like it yet, though lol! I'm only a little way in!

Cristina said...

Right now I'm reading "The Name of the Star" by Maureen Johnson. I like it.

I read Cinder and LOVED it!!!! She is one of my favorite protagonists.

Nicole Zoltack said...

I can't wait to read Cinder!

Steph Sessa said...

I totally agree with you about Cinder! I didn't think I wanted to read another story about Cinderella, but her world was so cool that it only hinted at Cinderella.

I'm currently reading Across The Universe by Beth Revis and can't wait to read Under The Never Sky by Veronica Rossi.

Not Inheritance! LOL! I just started the Mortal Instruments Series. I've heard great things about it. I'll keep you posted :) Have a great weekend!

I'm participating in this challenge where I said I would read 50 books that are already on my shelf or already on my TBR list. It's sooooo hard because I hear all about these new books coming out and I want to read them instead! (And I do, sometimes.) :)

I'm in between books at the moment so not sure what I'll dive into next.

Chantele Sedgwick said...

I'm reading The Kiss of a Stranger by Sarah M. Eden. I'm loving it so far. It's not my usual type of book, so I'm surprised I like it so much! :)

Tobi Summers said...

I've heard good things about Cinder. I'm reading Dead Iron by Devon Monk right now. I LOVED her other series (the Allie Beckstrom series), and I have hopes for this one too.

Susan Roebuck said...

I love to read - it's my vice LOL. I'm reading the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning right now. I like the sound of your book!

Krista McLaughlin said...

Ironic because I talked about reading today too! I just finished reading "The Lucky One" by Nicholas Sparks. Very good book!

Carrie-Anne said...

I'm reading two historical YAs, both set in the 1920s, one of my favoritest eras: Vixen, by Jillian Larkin, and Bright Young Things, by Anna Godberson, It's so refreshing and heartening to see third-person YA, current historical YA being published, and writers who aren't afraid to have more literary language, a slower pace, and books that aren't all of 288 pages.

I think I've been mentioning this on a lot of blogs lately, but I really loved The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater. It's an exquisite novel. When I get to read something like that I take it very, very slowly so I can savor every scene.

Jaycee DeLorenzo said...

Taking Shots by Toni Aleo...it's interesting.

Want to read Cinder soon.

Brenda Sills said...

Thanks! I'm so happy to hear about another great book to read. I'm always so grateful to you guys who post about awesome books to jazz up one of my favorite pastimes!

Morgan said...

I just finished a beta read for a fab friend last night and the story was amazzzzzing. I can't get it out of my mind. And I'm also just into a few pages of Variant ;)

Tasha Seegmiller said...

I'm two books ahead of my reading goal for the year. Just finished Our Fault in the Stars - blew my mind.

Amber said...

Just finished Miss Petegrine's Home for Peculiar Children I absolutely loved it! Rnsom Riggs has an amazing way with words. Great voice, witty, and a plot that kept me reading till the end!

Tara Tyler said...

awesome! its on my xmas list cause thats when i will get around to finishing the ones i have...

Nick Wilford said...

I almost went with this as my word today, but I just posted on my favourite author a couple of days ago so I think that covers that I love reading!

I'm reading a couple just now: When God Was a Rabbit by Sarah Winman which I haven't actually touched for a while, I've nearly finished but it's dragging a bit. I'm at a part where it uses 9/11 for an emotional punch and I think that's a bit of a cheap thing to do. I'm more properly reading Justice Served Cold by Susan Maylor which I won in a giveaway. Great psychological thriller!

Suzi said...

I'm reading Trafficked by Kim Purcell. It's going pretty fast, and easy read.

S.P. Bowers said...

I just finished Sara Eden's books. Loved them. I'm in the middle of On Writing but I'm not sure what novel I'll pick up next.

Fairview said...

I loved it too. You have great taste.

Susanna Leonard Hill said...

I haven't read Cinder yet, but after your review maybe I'll add it to my list! I am reading Enclave by Ann Aguirre and it's excellent so far....

Leslie Rose said...

I'm dying to read Cinder. That cover art is so intriguing and I've heard wonderful things about it. I'm wrapping up three trilogies right now - Forever by Maggie Stiefvater, The Death Cure by James Dashner, and Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.

Nicole said...

Well, I just got done re-reading a couple of my favorites, and now I'm looking forward to the next volume in Rick Riordan's "Kane Chronicles!"

Even at this age, I actually adore fairy tales. I know the characters didn't used to do much in some of them, but they are getting bigger and better upgrades for the modern age.
