It's Monday! What Are You Reading? #9

"It's Monday! What are you reading?" is a fun meme hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey. This is where we share the books we have read last week and our reading plans for this week.

The books that I reviewed last week are:

Diary of a Wimpy Kid (Diary of a Wimpy Kid #1) by Jeff Kinney;

Bridget Jones's Diary (Bridget Jones #1) by Helen Fielding;

Fever Pitch by Nick Hornby

The book I am currently reading is:


What if you were bound for a new world, about to pledge your life to someone you'd been promised to since birth, and one unexpected violent attack made survival—not love—the issue?

Out in the murky nebula lurks an unseen enemy: the New Horizon. On its way to populate a distant planet in the wake of Earth's collapse, the ship's crew has been unable to conceive a generation to continue its mission. They need young girls desperately, or their zealous leader's efforts will fail. Onboard their sister ship, the Empyrean, the unsuspecting families don't know an attack is being mounted that could claim the most important among them...

Fifteen-year-old Waverly is part of the first generation to be successfully conceived in deep space; she was born on the Empyrean, and the large farming vessel is all she knows. Her concerns are those of any teenager—until Kieran Alden proposes to her. The handsome captain-to-be has everything Waverly could ever want in a husband, and with the pressure to start having children, everyone is sure he's the best choice. Except for Waverly, who wants more from life than marriage—and is secretly intrigued by the shy, darkly brilliant Seth.

But when the Empyrean faces sudden attack by their assumed allies, they quickly find out that the enemies aren't all from the outside.


  1. The cover for Glow is gorgeous and it sounds like it's going to be an interesting read too. Hope you enjoy it.

  2. I had pneumonia last winter and read all of the Wimpy Kid books. Hated being stuck in bed feeling bad but loooved the books. So funny and creative!
    Have a great reading week :) The Brunette Librarian's Blog

  3. I've only read vibes by Amy Kathleen Ryan before, but Glow looks interesting. And the cover is certainly gorgeous.
