It's Monday!!!

I totally skipped out on this last week, so I'm jumping back in today for a fresh start! This is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila over at Book Journey. It's a fun way to recap what you've read, gush about what you're currently reading, and predict what you plan to read next. Plus, you get to see what others are reading/have read to bulk up your own to-read list ;-)

As you can see below, I have quite a few reviews that are in the works, and I plan to step up my game later this week. I also have a couple really promising ones in progress and coming up, so I hope your coming week looks as exciting as mine! Enjoy!!!

Have Read


Brush of Shade, by Jan Harman
This book had potential, but unfortunately didn't live up to it in my opinion. I was given a free copy of this title in exchange for an honest opinion. My full review will be coming soon.

Awaken, by Meg Cabot
This one was fabulous! I took my time reading it because I knew it was the end, but I enjoyed it just as much as the first and was really happy with the way Meg Cabot chose to wrap this one up! Review to come soon.

Perfect Opposite, by Zoya Tessi
This was another free copy granted in exchange for an honest review, and after reading the one mentioned above, I was a little skeptical about another self-published title with very few reviews on Goodreads. However, I was pleasantly surprised with this one and really enjoyed the opposites attract love story mixed with a little bit of action. Full review to come soon.

Frigid, by J. Lynn (Jennifer L. Armentrout)
Whoa! This was so not what I was expecting from this author! Having only read 3/4 of the Lux novels from this author, I had no idea about this whole other side of her. J. Lynn is the pen name Jennifer L. Armentrout uses when writing for the adult audience. And although I turned 30 today (I know, right?) and clearly fall into the adult classification, this book had the ability to make me blush! A more complete review will be coming soon.

Currently Reading

Digital Me, by J. M. Varner
A free copy was given to me in exchange for an honest review. Although I've just started it, it looks to be a play on Facebook and the ramifications of opening the age limit to high school-aged students. I worry that the topic might be a little dated now, but we shall see!

Wither, by Lauren DeStefano
This is a fantasy story set in the future where a cure has been found to all diseases, including all forms of cancer. However, an irreversible side effect of this is that all females die at age 20, and all males at age 25. Rhyne is a 16-year-old girl who is sold as a bride (along with two other girls who will be her sister wives) to a man who is currently losing his first wife to the disease. I'm about 60 pages into this one and am really enjoying it so far! This is the first title in the Chemical Garden series.

Guilty Wives, by James Patterson
I tried this one out back when it first came out, but it was a new release from the library among a pile of other books, and I ended up having to return it before getting more than a chapter or two read. This time I'm trying out the audio, so hopefully it goes better this time around. I'm usually never disappointed with a Patterson title.

Plan to Read Next
