It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

Just finished:

This was my first Sarah Dessen book and I loved it!

Currently Reading:

I'm participating in a virtual book tour for this one next week through Goddess Fish. I'll two things about this book so far: 1. It's super steamy and perfect for summer and 2. I want that dress on the cover.

Next Up:

I'm very excited for this one.

What are you reading this week?


  1. Oooh, I've never heard of Annexed...the cover has me intrigued!

    Also, gotta love a steamy summer book - happy reading :)

  2. This is going to sound bad. I haven't read a Dessen book either! I shall rectify that immediately!

    I'm a new follower. You can find me at!

    Great blog! Happy reading :)

  3. I thought Annexed was a great read, yet, not surprisingly, heartbreaking. No matter how many books I read about Anne Frank, I always hope that I'm reading fiction, and it will somehow end differently.

  4. Annexed looks intriguing...hope you enjoy it! Thanks for sharing your reads.


  5. I'm glad you enjoyed Lock and Key; I recently bought it for like $3 at B&N. I read my first Dessen a few weeks ago (The Truth About Forever) and loved her as well!

    Happy reading, especially Annexed! Sounds interesting!

  6. I just read Lock and Key a couple of weeks ago! It was so amazing, I'm glad you loved it too! :D It was my second Dessen book, I've also read Along For the Summer and I really liked it too, you should definitely check it out, it's a perfect read for the summer...if the name didn't already make it super obvious. ;)

    I've heard great things about Annexed, I hope you like it! Happy Reading! :D

  7. Annexed was wonderful. Enjoy your books and your week.
    My Monday:

  8. I've never read a Dessen book, but I really want to fit one in somewhere. My problem is that I hear they're all so great, I get overwhelmed with knowing which to start with.

  9. I am reading Bleak House by Charles Dickens.

  10. Oooh, can't wait to hear what you think about Annexed! I've had it on my radar since first hearing about it last year and really need to read it soon.

  11. @Kat P It's a historical fiction, YA novel about Peter Van Pels, the teenage boy who was in the Secret Annex with Anne Frank. I'm really liking it so far!

  12. @Under the Covers It's never too late! It took me a long time to finally read her books!

  13. @Alison's Book Marks Yes! I'm right with you. I read Anne Frank's Diary a couple times and every time and I've been fascinated by some of the other stories that have come out about life in the Secret Annex. You keep hoping that something changes!

  14. @JP I picked up The Truth About Forever from the library as well. I'm hoping to get into that one once I get back from vacation.

  15. @.Ambur. So far, I'm really liking Annexed. I'm definitely going to read more of Dessen's books!

  16. @Asheley @ Into the Hall of Books I'm definitely going to be reading more Dessen in the future. I just went to the library and picked out two of her books randomly from the shelf to get started.

  17. @celawerdblog I really want to read that and Great Expectations!

  18. @Meg I just started last night and ate through almost 150 pages. It's good so far!
