It's Monday, What are You Reading?



It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Book Journey.
Welcome to It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!


Historical Fiction is usually a genre that I shy away from, but this week I am reading Life: An Exlploded Diagram. I am reading it for a YA Book club I joined. I hear the romance is swoony, so here's hoping...

Goodreads Blurb:
Carnegie Medalist Mal Peet ignites an epic tale of young love against the dramatic backdrop of the Cold War and the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Can love survive a lifetime? When working-class Clem Ackroyd falls for Frankie Mortimer, the gorgeous daughter of a wealthy local landowner, he has no hope that it can. After all, the world teeters on the brink of war, and bombs could rain down any minute over the bleak English countryside--just as they did seventeen years ago as his mother, pregnant with him, tended her garden. This time, Clem may not survive. Told in cinematic style by acclaimed writer Mal Peet, this brilliant coming-of-age novel is a gripping family portrait that interweaves the stories of three generations and the terrifying crises that de? ne them. With its urgent sense of history, sweeping emotion, and winning young narrator, Mal Peet's latest is an unforgettable, timely exploration of life during wartime.

It's a good Contemporary Romance, I really liked it.. if you liked Pushing the Limits you'd probably like it.

I haven't heard of this one. I don't usually read comtemp YA. But I am so jealous about Days of Blood and Starlight. I can't wait to read that one.
