What I've Been Reading (2)

Whoo! Got a bunch of books from the library yesterday...unfortunately, I finished most of them in two days so now I must trudge back to the library. :( They should have library mailing service.

Currently Reading:

Sweet Little Lies by Lauren Conrad
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley


Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
What If...Your Past Came Back to Haunt You by Liz Ruckdeschel and Sara James


All That Matters by Wayson Choy
The Strawberry Picker by Monika Feth
The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan*

Comment me your lists! Love to see them!

What I've Been Reading was created by Sheila at Book Journey

*BTW, this was not by will. This was because it was due and everyone else had a hold on it. :( 


  1. Hi Annie, So glad you enjoyed 13 Reasons Why. I liked it too. The story was told in such a different way that was believable, yet kept you guessing until the end. A must read! I like that you listed the books that you've ditched. I don't mind setting aside a book that just doesn't appeal to me. There are so many great books out there that I can spend my time reading!

    1. TRW was very haunting and I enjoyed it thoroughly without feeling too creeped up.

      I have a major problem with books that I don't like...I feel obligated to finish them. My mantra while reading is basically "They took the effort and time to write and you will reward them by taking your time and effort to finish it".
      However, sometimes it's just too much and like you said,there are so many other good books to try out! After all, a minute wasted is a minute gone!

      *Wow, just saw how weird my sad face looks...must fix that...

  2. I hope you get The Lost Hero back soon! I just finished The Mark of Athena and it's my favorite of the series. You shouldn't feel bad about ditching books. There are so many amazing books out there that there is no reason to spend time on ones that don't work for you. Here is my list

    1. The Heroes of Olympus is a great series and I'm disappointed that I haven't gotten past The Lost Hero yet! And I agree with you on ditching books - I keep reminding myself that but often, the guilt is too much for me. Oh well. Thank you for stopping by! :)
