It’s Monday! What are you reading?

Standard

It’s Monday! What are you reading? is a bookish meme hosted by Book Journey that spotlights what we’re reading, plan on reading, or finished reading. The last few weeks I have been running around – literally – as I continue to prepare for my half marathon next weekend. As part of my “preparation”, I also completed the Awesome 80’s 10K run with my cousin for her birthday. SO MUCH FUN. I ended up channeling 80’s Workout Barbie, from the electric blue leggings to the hot pink leg warmers to the one shoulder sweatshirt and of course, the high side pony.

Currently Reading:

  • The Serial Killer Whisperer by Pete Earley – the true story of a man who experiences a Traumatic Brain Injury as a teenager, subsequent personality shift, and ends up writing letters to incarcerated serial killers, who just happen to write back to him. This is a morbid book and not for the faint of heart, as Eearley incorporates excerpts of the actual letters.
  • Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson – got pushed back the last few weeks in lieu of morbidity (see above) and teen crush (see below), but am determined to finish
  • All the President’s Men by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein – saw the movie recently and immediately went to my nearest library to check out this book. Cannot believe this was the reporting that eventually brought down a presidential administration. Restores my faith in investigative journalism.

Just Finished (full reviews to come, I promise!):

  • Deity by Jennifer L. Armentrout – The action. The romance. The twist(s). Team Aiden FTW.
  • In the Band by Jean Haus –  parentified female drummer, hot but sensitive guitarist. Found a new author to love.
  • Happy Hour (Racing on the Edge) by Shey Stahl – not a bad indie debut, but can definitely use an editor, and a less-is-more approach when comparing car parts to body parts. a few times is cute, even tongue-in-cheek. every single time is overkill. 
  • The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin – a genuinely suspenseful, well-paced, sexy sequel

Next up

  • The Shattered Dark by Sandy Williams – cannot wait to catch up with McKenzie and Aren

Hmm, didn’t realize until now that the books I just finished reading were YA and books I’m currently reading are non-fiction/biography. Go figure. What about you? What are you reading?
