It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a meme hosted by Book Journey with a children's/YA version at Teach Mentor Texts.
Soulbound, the first book in the Legacy of Tril series by Heather Brewer. Last week I managed to finally finish it. This is probably my favorite Heather Brewer book to date. I love seeing her voice applied to a more traditional fantasy setting. I'm also really enjoying some of the stereotypes that are getting challenged. I can't wait for more in the series. I read an Advance Readers Copy from the publisher.
Belladonna, the second book in The Secrets of the Eternal Rose series by Fiona Paul. This is shaping up to be an excellent series for fans of a wide variety of genres. There's historical, romance, mystery, thriller, horror, but not too much of any one to turn off those who usually avoid it. This second book avoids many of the traps follow-up books often fall into, furthering the larger plot and deepening the characters' relationships while having its own distinct storyline. Cass is one of my favorite heroines, remaining true to herself while being realistic for the time period, and--most importantly--never making me want to beat sense into her. I read an Advance Readers Copy from the publisher.
Let It Snow: Three Holiday Stories by Maureen Johnson, John Green and Lauren Myracle. I'm barely into it, so I can't say much, other than that I like the narrator of Johnson's story quite a lot.
Kobo e-readers, I also downloaded the Kobo app to my phone and started reading Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. So far, I find it pleasant enough, but not really my style.
This week I'll be finishing Let It Snow and starting Please Ignore Vera Dietz for the January meeting of Teen Reads.
