It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 11th July 2016


It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a weekly meme hosted by Kathryn at the Book Date and is a great chance to interact and of course to add to your TBR list (because it's never long enough!). 

Jen Vincent, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee of Unleashing Readers decided to give It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels, anything in the world of kidlit – join them!

This has not been a fantastic reading week for me - I was trying to plug through The Broken Destiny which just was not working out for me, and having just picked up a number of large books (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix @870 pages (according to Goodreads); Outlander #1 @896 pages) I truthfully just have not been able to get too far!

What I read last week:

Rated {★★★★★}
What a fun read - a short and entertaining graphic novel that I would highly recommend to any bookworm, introvert or female in general. I picked this one up from my library after seeing Nicole's Review over at A Myriad of Books.
Rated {★☆☆☆☆} 

Unfortunately this book had a stunning cover but that was about it. So disappointed.

Rated {★★★☆☆} 
I did enjoy this one but overall I felt it was only worth three stars, which was disappointing considering I was sure it would be at least a four star read. More on that in my review.

What I am Currently Reading:


Here are two books off my Currently Reading shelf. I'm excited to be diving back into Novik's world of Temeraire and look forward to seeing what my favourite characters are up to now.

I've been re-reading Harry Potter slowly this year because, well firstly it's Harry Potter and secondly I dhave only ever read the 6th and 7th books once each. I need to see if I can face the deaths of so many beloved characters!

Up Next:

This one looks like a fast and fun read and I will be reviewing before the publishing date in August. I'm looking forward to it being lighthearted and humorous so I hope it can live up to these expectations.

How did your week shape up??
