It's Monday, what are you reading? (33)

Hosted by Book Journey
I didn't think I was going to have a post because up until earlier tonight (Sunday), I hadn't finished any books, but then I finished two. And none were on my list last week. Whoops. 

Last week I finished reading:
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
I got caught up in Gone Girl which I started for a readalong and didn't get hooked on right away, but then about 160 pages in I did get hooked and then I couldn't stop over the entire weekend and I devoured it. Intense, dark, and well written. Not happy about the ending but the more I think about it, I guess it was kinda perfect. Maybe.

Hana by Lauren Oliver
A short story that takes place at the same time as Delirium but this time told by Lena's best friend Hana. I wish I remembered the first book better, I should really do a reread before book 3 comes out next month but I don't think I'll have time. At least this refreshed a little bit, and even though it isn't necessary to read it, I do think the shock at the end adds something you don't get from Delirium, though possibly it will be discussed further in Requiem. I hope so, because I need answers!

What I plan to read this week:
Boundless by Cynthia Hand
I really will! Contrary to what the past few weeks of these posts would indicate, I'm actually really looking forward to this. I'm also a little nervous... it's book 3 and that means the end and I really hope things turn out the way, I mean with the boy, I hope they will!

Annabel by Lauren Oliver
Also going to read this short story in preparation for Requiem. It's told from the perspective of Lena's mother, and again, should be interesting and also remind me of some of the many things I have probably forgotten. It takes place before Delirium.

  1. I know just how you feel about the ending of Gone Girl. WHAT?!? But yes, maybe it makes sense? LOL

    Have a great week of reading!

  2. Haven't read Gone Girl yet. It's fun that so many people have and are talking about it.

  3. I enjoyed Gone Girl at the end of the year, it ended up in my top ten. Still, the ending was definitely... unexpected. I just finished a book called Bailout, about the bailout of the banks in 2009. Scariest book I've read in a long time! :)

  4. Many series are including short stories and/or prequels. I recently reviewed the audio of My Soul To Lose which is a prequel in Soul Screamers series. New Follower
