What I’m Reading this Week: October 5, 2014

Weekly What I'm Reading

This is a combo post of what I read last week and what I plan on reading this coming week.

As I stated last week, I was determined to finish David Mitchell’s The Bone Clocks and I did and you can read my review here:  My review of The Bone Clocks. Briefly I’ll tell you that I liked this book…for the most part.

I’m still reading The Spider and the Stone by Glen Craney. I’m sorry to say that it’s a slow go on this book but I am still reserving giving an opinion because I’m not far enough into the book to have one.

Trying to get into the spirit of Halloween, I read Grady Hendix’s Horrorstor. I’m definitely going to be writing a full review of this book this week, so no spoilers on that here.

Last of my “read” pile is Every Day by David Levithan. This was my first David Levithan novel and I read it all in one day if that’s any indication of how much I liked it. Not only did I love the story for itself, but I loved that it took me out of my comfort zone. More on that in a full review to come.

Book pile

This week, I plan on reading more of The Spider and the Stone. I really need to make a concerted effort to get into the meat of this book. I also started Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell and I plan on starting Festive in Death by J.D. Robb and/or we were liars by E. Lockhart. Like I said in my TBR Pressures post, I don’t like to commit myself too heavily on what I plan on reading. I usually let my mood decide what I am going to pluck off of my bookshelves at the time I’m looking for something to read. That being said, I’ve really been looking forward to both of the above books so it’s a pretty good bet that I’ll read one or the other or both this week.

  1. I just purchased Horrostor, and I’m extremely excited to read it.
    And Every Day by David Levithan I read months maybe a year ago, and it is definitely one of my favorite contemporaries. I wish he’d write a second novel just about A’s experiences in a different body. Not even anything to do with Rhiannon (very Fleetwood Mac) just experiencing different lives. I’d read it.

    1. Thanks for the comment, Todd. Considering you’re a complete stranger, I’d still like to say that I think you’ll like Horrorstor. Most of the reviews on Goodreads are good (no pun intended) and I thought it was a fun read. Perfect for the time of year. I hope you’ll post your thoughts when you read it.
