It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at bookjourney.
Come join the fun!
Geez, the only book I finished last week is The Birthday Ball by Lois Lowry. My review on it is here.
I am currently reading:
Unfortunately, this book has not "hooked" me yet and I'm halfway through. The big bummer for me is that the setting is a section of Maui that I did not visit. After an incredible vacation to the west side of the island last summer with my husband (Thank You Jesus!), I was ready to read this book and be transported back there --for free this time! So I've had to adjust to the fact that this book's setting is southern Maui.
I am reading this for the 3rd time. Last time I skimmed and scanned up until the arena. This time I'm reading every detail... and analyzing them too! (For example, why does Peeta's -along with the other boys in the arena- facial hair stop growing in the arena? Is this a detail that will resurface in Book #3?) All in preparation of the release of Mockingjay tomorrow! I pre-ordered from amazon.com with 2 day shipping. When will it arrive??? How are you getting your copy of Mockingjay?
