It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (Jan 2)

In an effort to "take back my blog" I've decided to start participating in memes that I loved and stopped doing! Of course my blog won't become all memes (that's just evil) but I will do them every now and then. 

That being said, It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is one of my all time favorite memes! It's a good way to share what you're reading, going to read, or have read the past week. If you'd like to participate too, you can click the button above to visit Book Journey and link up!


Books I'm Reading:

Cinder has been on my reading list for months, and I finally have time to read it!
Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl. . . .

Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.

In this thrilling debut young adult novel, the first of a quartet, Marissa Meyer introduces readers to an unforgettable heroine and a masterfully crafted new world that’s enthralling.

Almost done with this one! It is weird, but awesome. The dystopian world that Julianna Baggott builds is eerie.
We know you are here, our brothers and sisters . . .
Pressia barely remembers the Detonations or much about life during the Before. In her sleeping cabinet behind the rubble of an old barbershop where she lives with her grandfather, she thinks about what is lost-how the world went from amusement parks, movie theaters, birthday parties, fathers and mothers . . . to ash and dust, scars, permanent burns, and fused, damaged bodies. And now, at an age when everyone is required to turn themselves over to the militia to either be trained as a soldier or, if they are too damaged and weak, to be used as live targets, Pressia can no longer pretend to be small. Pressia is on the run.

So that's it for me this week!

I'm starting small. I'm sure I'll read something other than these two books this week, but for now this is what I'm focused on :). What are YOU reading this week?
