It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

Hey there!  Welcome to It’s Monday, What Are You Reading!

I love being a part of this and I hope you do too!  As part of this weekly meme I love to encourage you all to go and visit the others participating in this meme. Fair warning… this meme tends to add to your reading list!

Crazy busy week.  I have not been around much with the Library sale going on, so here is my small contribution of posts this past week:

Making Of A Library Sale

The Winners Curse by Marie Rutkowski

Seriously.. that’s it.  😯  Moving forward this week, I am cruising along in audio and hope to get these gems this week:

For my ears:

Panic began as so many things do in Carp, a poor town of 12,000 people in the middle of nowhere: Because it was summer, and there was nothing else to do.

Heather never thought she would compete in panic, a legendary game played by graduating seniors, where the stakes are high and the payoff is even higher. She’d never thought of herself as fearless, the kind of person who would fight to stand out. But when she finds something, and someone, to fight for, she will discover that she is braver than she ever thought.

Dodge has never been afraid of panic. His secret will fuel him, and get him all the way through the game; he’s sure of it. But what he doesn’t know is that he’s not the only one with a secret. Everyone has something to play for.

For Heather and Dodge, the game will bring new alliances, unexpected revelations, and the possibility of first love for each of them – and the knowledge that sometimes the very things we fear are those we need the most.

Love Oliver’s books!

Love—good and bad—forces three teens’ worlds to tilt in a riveting standalone novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Ellen Hopkins.

Three teens, three stories—all interconnected through their parents’ family relationships. As the adults pull away, caught up in their own dilemmas, the worlds of the teens begin to tilt.

Mikayla, almost eighteen, is over-the-top in love with Dylan, who loves her back jealously. But what happens to that love when Mikayla gets pregnant the summer before their senior year and decides to keep the baby?

Shane turns sixteen that same summer and falls hard in love with his first boyfriend, Alex, who happens to be HIV positive. Shane has lived for four years with his little sister’s impending death. Can he accept Alex’s love, knowing his life, too, will be shortened?

Harley is fourteen—a good girl searching for new experiences, especially love from an older boy. She never expects to hurdle toward self-destructive extremes in order to define who she is and who she wants to be.

For my eyes:

It’s a profile, like all the others on the online dating site. But as NYPD Detective Kat Donovan focuses on the accompanying picture, she feels her whole world explode, as emotions she’s ignored for decades come crashing down on her. Staring back at her is her ex-fiancé Jeff, the man who shattered her heart—and who she hasn’t seen in 18 years.

Kat feels a spark, wondering if this might be the moment when past tragedies recede and a new world opens up to her.  But when she reaches out to the man in the profile, her reawakened hope quickly darkens into suspicion and then terror as an unspeakable conspiracy comes to light, in which monsters prey upon the most vulnerable. 

As the body count mounts and Kat’s hope for a second chance with Jeff grows more and more elusive, she is consumed by an investigation that challenges her feelings about everyone she ever loved—her former fiancé, her mother, and even her father, whose cruel murder so long ago has never been fully explained. With lives on the line, including her own, Kat must venture deeper into the darkness than she ever has before, and discover if she has the strength to survive what she finds there.

  1. Looking forward to Panic and Missing You. Have a great week.

  2. Harlan Coben is speaking at a virtual event at my local bookstore this week, I think. I doubt I’ll be able to make it though. I hope this week is less hectic for you!

  3. Enjoy your week! I still haven’t read anything by Lauren Oliver.

  4. Looks like a fabulous library sale. You obviously put a lot of work into it. Our library has a sale every year but it’s a lot smaller in scale… Panic looks interesting. Hope your week is all good happy reading!

  5. Our spring book sale for the Friends will be in a few weeks so it’s busy time for us as well! Enjoy the good kind of busy life that you have! Have a great week! -Earl

  6. I read Panic last month. It was good. Hope you enjoy it too.

  7. Panic sounds like an interesting story. Glad I didn’t have that sort of senior year experience. 😛 Have a great week!

  8. Loving the look of Panic and Tilt…

  9. All your books are calling me!! Here’s to a great week and more reading time 🙂

  10. I’m so looking forward to that Harlan Coben. I heard him speak in Belfast before a screening of Tell No One and he is a very smart, funny guy.

  11. Love Harlan Coben’s books. ENJOY!!

    Another great post, Sheila. Panic sounds quite interesting. I have never read any books by Ellen Hopkins.

    Have a great week.

  12. I love Ellen Hopkins but I’m not sure how I’d like her books on audio. Julie was loving Missing You when I talked to her last week. Have a great week!

  13. Have a huge list of work to do after wasting all my time on sunday

  14. I have only read one Lauren Oliver novel, and it was a middle-grade book – I really need to read some of her YA – I’ve heard such good things about them!

    Enjoy your books this week –

    Book by Book is now on Facebook!

  15. Looks like you had a great time with the library sale. I haven’t read Oliver yet either. Hope you enjoy your books!

  16. I quite like Harlen, might just give that one a look-see

  17. Missing You sounds nice and creepy! Don’t think I’ve read anything by Coben yet. Saw on your sidebar that you’re listening to The Winter People–that one’s definitely on my TBR.
