It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a meme hosted by Book Journey with a children's version at Teach Mentor Texts.
Flesh and Bone, the third book in Jonathan Maberry's Rot and Ruin series. This is my favorite installment so far, thanks in part to the creepiest villains yet. Maberry is really using the zombie apocalypse scenario to explore some fascinating aspects of our current society. I can't wait for the final book, which is set up very well.
Hold Me Closer, Necromancer, the first book in the Necromancer series by Lish McBride. It's a really fun take on the supernatural trend in YA with some truly great characters. A lot of this book was set-up for the future of the series, so I'm looking forward to reading the next books to build on what's already been established.
The Dark Unwinding by Sharon Cameron. I don't think I could possibly love this book more. The best way I can describe it is as a middle grade plot and setting with YA emotions and sensibilities. It's laced with fantasy and dastardly plots that must be foiled, but there's a strong heroine coming into her own as an independent young woman and discovering all the emotions and potential that have always been inside her. Cameron does so many brilliant things with the narrative that it's tempting to tell you all of them, but then you wouldn't get to discover them yourself. Do yourself a favor, just read this book.
Smile by Raina Telgemeier for her author visit. I like the style, but I literally just started it, so I can't really say more than that.
This week, I'll be finishing Smile, then starting on Drama, also by Raina Telgemeier.
