This Week in Books (14) June 2nd, 2013

This week in books a feature I'm going to be doing on my blog. This week in books is in no way my original idea. It is a combination of Friday reads, its Monday what are you reading, weekly wraps up, and any thing else you can think of. The basic idea is I will be telling you what I read last week and what I would like to read this week which is always subject to change.

Read the Past Two Weeks:

I didn't do a This Week in Books last week because I was embrassed to had only read one book when I knew I could have read more. That book was That Summer by Sarah Dessen. 

Then it came to this week May 26th through June 2nd. I was able to finish four books. The books were:
This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen (Review)
Just Listen by Sarah Dessen (Review)
The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood by Howard Pyle 
Rump: The True Story of Rumpelstilskin by Liesl Shurtliff (Review)

Just Listen and Rump were starting within this week. Rump and Robin Hood were both finished today June 2nd. I have my reviews up for all of them except Robin Hood as I'm covering the classic for Classics Retold in September. Come back in September for a full month of Robin Hood themed posts. All the books I read in September will be reviewed in October unless they are Robin Hood themed. 

Currently Reading:
I haven't actually started Scarlet by Marissa Meyer, but I will be starting it probably tonight while I watch TV. I loved Cinder and I can't wait to fall in love with Scarlet. It is due back to the library by the 5th so I will have it done by that day.

To Read:
June is a no TBR month so I'm free to read whatever book I want. I'm afraid I have gone a little overboard in all the books I have checked out from the library. 
I will either start Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion or Plain Truth by Jodi Picoult which I'm reading with one of my Goodreads friends. 


  1. I didn't like Scarlet as much as I had hoped for but it was still enjoyable. Plain Truth was my favorite Picoult book.

    Hope you enjoy all of your books, Rachael!

    1. Thanks Alison. I'm hoping to enjoy all of the books I'm reading.

  2. Enjoy reading!! I haven't read Cinder yet but EVERYONE's been singing praises for it so I know I'll have to get to that soon. I wanted to watch the Warm Bodies movie but missed it because of exams (pfft)... Hope all the books will turn out great for you!

    1. Cinder was awesome. I have not seen Warm Bodies either.
