"Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars, points of light and reason. ...And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason, for anything."

What are you reading (10)?

It's Monday! What are you reading this week? is a weekly event now hosted by One Persons Journey Through a World Of Books. It's helpful way to take a look at what you have read and what you want to read!

What a stressful week! We did have really beautiful weather most of the week, even though it was absolutely freezing all weekend. Plus we had high wind warnings, which made driving quite a hassle.

I worked late most of the week, and didn't get to enjoy much time outside. I also had three doctors appointments (which meant three ultrasounds, and three blood draws!!). All these shots are certainly helping my fear of needles!

Even with being busy, I still read three books this week, and I'm half way through another.
  1. North of Beautiful - Justina Chen Headley: What an amazing read!
  2. Boys, Girls and Other Hazardous Materials - Rosalind Wiseman
  3. Snap - Carol Snow

I'm working on finishing up the reviews.

This week I'm hoping to read:

  1. Ice - Sarah Beth Durst: I'm actually almost finished with this one and really enjoying it.
  2. All Unquiet Things - Anna Jarzab: repeat from last week
  3. Ghost Girl - Tonya Hurley: repeat from last week
  4. Bleeding Violet - Dia Reeves: I love the cover on this one. The purple is so pretty!!
  5. Beautiful Creatures - Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl: This is the second time I've checked this one out at the library and I'm determined to read it this time!
  6. Girl in the Arena - Lise Haines: This one has gotten really mixed reviews. I'm going to give it a try but if I'm not feeling it, I'm not going to keep going. Too many other books to read!!

That's my week in books. How bout yours?

Well, if it makes you feel any better, I have a signed copy of Beautiful Creatures on my shelf and have yet to pick it up. Just too much going on! But I really want to! Can't wait to see what you think of Boys, Girls and Other Hazardous Materials!

Have a Fabulous reading week!

I have not read Beautiful Creatures yet, perhaps someday. You have quite a few titles lined up for this week. Your review of North of Beautiful was great and now makes me want to read it too. Have a good week.

I think under the circumstances you did really well to read that much. I had a stressful week and only read 1 book. I think you'll enjoy Beautiful Creatures, it was a great read. Have a great week!

I'm sorry you had a stressful week -- three encounters with needles couldn't have helped. You have a good reading line up for this week! I look forward to seeing what you think of Ice. I've had my eye on it for a while.

When I was a kid, my parents used to buy me a Barbie or a book whenever I had to go to get shots...so I say reward yourself with some new books this week :)

I've heard good things about North of Beautiful. It's in my to-be-read pile. Here's what I'm currently reading:

You have so many interesting books on your upcoming list. Most of them are on my TBR stack too. I loved Beautiful Creatures.

I had a couple of doctor appointments too. I don't mind the blood draws or IVs but I'm not too keen on the "drinking large quatities of nasty drinks before tests" thing. At least I don't have to taste a shot.

At least you got to read a little in the waiting room right? Hopefully? It can be hard sometimes when life gets busy, but I think you still got a lot done.

I have an award for you on my blog!!

Bleeding Violet does have a gorgeous cover.

I'm hoping to read Beautiful Creatures soon, too.
