I'm having trouble getting into this one. It's interesting but not grabbing.

2. 3rd Degree by James Patterson (pg. 205 of 368) (
for challenges)
Interesting terrorism case in this one, plus one of them has just gone missing.

3. Fireworks Over Taccoa by Jeffrey Stepakoff (pg. 39 of 260)(ARC)

Actually none, oddly enough.

Coming this week.


  1. I felt exactly the same about The Luxe. I persevered to the end, but it was all just a bit blah. I didn't bother reviewing it as I couldn't think of much (either good or bad) to say about it...

  2. The only one on your list that I've read is Uglies and I really liked that series (though I haven't read Extras yet)

  3. I wish I was organized enough to have a reading agenda! Happy reading!

  4. I hope you enjoy all of your books coming up! I love partaking in challenges and need to step up my reading for them. My problem is I'm a part of like 5 challenges.. lol

  5. Wow, so many books! I have to admit that I didn't really enjoy possession when I read it, I don't know what it was, I was just bored by it. I hope you enjoyed it

  6. I gave "The Luxe" a try recently and had a hard time getting into it too, so I put it aside for now. As for your next reads, I loved the Uglies series and Rude Awakenings was fun! I'll be curious about your thoughts on "The Secret History of the Pink Carnation", it's been sitting in my TBR pile forever!

  7. I really enjoyed possession when I read it, and it may be a tough act for The Luxe to follow. Rude Awakenings of a Austen Addict sounds intriguing. It might let me know what I'm in for some day.
    Nice Blog.

  8. I so want to read The Luxe too!! Did you know that your font is like HUGE!!???? Did you like Possession?? I had several people talk me out of reading that one on Goodreads a while back!

  9. Curious about the Laura Bennett one ... She was on Project Runway I think!

  10. I think I know what you mean about The Luxe. It's well-written but not what I expected. Also, since I haven't gotten very far with it, I have a suspicion that the story will not sustain the hype (or that gorgeous, sumptuous cover).
