It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?
It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila over @ Book Journey. Stop by! 🙂
I had a fabulous weekend. Went with some friends to check out a roller derby bout (more on this in a later post) on Saturday then ran a 5k (more on this later too) with my girlfriend and about three hundred other folks on Sunday. It was windy run which made it tough, but it was a lot of fun! The event supported the Matheny Medical and Educational Center which helps children and adults with severe and complex disabilities. I’ll go into more detail in a subsequent post, but it is a really cool organization and I was happy for the chance to support them.
As for reading, here’s what I’ve been up to:
The Dark and Hollow Places by Carrie Ryan – This is the third and final novel in Ryan’s Forest of Hands and Teeth series. If you haven’t read this series, go read it! Set in a post-apocalyptic world where zombies have taken over, the protagonists fight for their survival against all odds. While this may sound similar to other zombiesque stories, Ryan’s writing is brilliant, her characters flawed and intriguing, and her twists surprising. As eager as I am to continue reading, I’m sad that the series is coming to an end.
Still listening to:
Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly – Still an amazing story, but if I were to do it over, I’d probably read it instead of listening to it. The faux-French accents with American English undertones aren’t really working for me. 🙂
Slow week for me, but looking forward to new books this coming week! How about you? What have you been reading?
