"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 (32)?


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!

I can't believe another Monday is here already.  And it's BANNED BOOKS WEEK!!  Make sure you check out my awesome giveaway HERE for a signed copy of Shine by Lauren Myracle in honor of Banned Books!!

Here was my week:

I got to see Lauren Myracle speak about banned books and censorship at the local high school.  She was absolutely amazing and I loved her!!

I also reviewed:
Read:
  • The Juliet Spell - Douglas Rees
  • 1st to Die - James Patterson
  • The Shadowing: Hunted - Adam Slater
This week I'm only reading books that have banned or challenged.  Here's my list to pick from:
  • Harriet the Spy: Louise Fitzhugh
  • Deenie: Judy Blume
  • The Outsiders: SE Hinton
  • Summer of My German Soldier: Bette Greene
  • Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry: Mildred D Taylor
  • The Giver: Lois Lowry
  • Charlotte's Web: EB White
These are almost all books that I read when I was in school, so I'm looking forward to going back and re-reading them and sharing them with you!!

I loved Harriet the Spy, The Outiders, and especially, Charlotte's Web when I was a kid! I really want to read the Pretty Little Liars series. I haven't watched the show, but my sister-in-law does and she said the books are really good!
