It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey

Lots of review in the last fortnight, not so much on the feature front. Tis always the way; I never seem to have an even balance! Oh well, it's my blog, it doesn't really matter does it. Review will be a while coming but I whole-heartedly recommend The Mad Scientist's Daughter by Cassandra Rose Clarke, it is just stunning and I cried my eyes out on Saturday reading it.

  1. finished Hoodie by Brendon Lancaster and still reading The End Specialist by Drew Magary.


  2. How are you liking Pure so far? I really liked it, but it's definitely dark & a wee bit morbid.

    1. I stayed up late to finish it off last night. Was a bit slow starting for me and my brain kept trying to work out the implied science behind the bomb. I guess it could be morbid by YA standards but I didn't think it was excessively so compared to other books I read. Have Fuse to review so I'm glad I liked it!

  3. It's your blog, you can do whatever you want ;) I'm curious what you thought of The Paris to read your review!

    Have a great week of reading!

  4. I don't think I would normally have picked up The Mad Scientist's Daughter, but with such high praise...
