It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? #IMWAYR 05/18/2020

It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme started by Jen at Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee at Unleashing Readers and share all of your readings of the week.

Happy Monday! My reading has been taking a break along with my blogging. Mostly, I have only read school material, but this week I got to pick up a book I have been wanting to read…YAY! Lets jump right into my most recent books…

Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman (Arc of a Scythe #2)

This book is the second one in the Arc of a Scythe series. I was first introduced to this series when taking Adolescence Literature and I fell in love with the first book because of its dystopian nature. Not going to lie, I was worried that I would not like this book as much as I liked the first book, but I am only a couple of chapters in and I cannot put it down haha. Hopefully I finish it up this week and can give you a review next Monday.


Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

The fate of the world is in the hands of six teenagers. These street rats have no family and no one to look after them. They have to break into an impenetrable fortress, free an highly guarded prisoner and try not to kill one another. Each one has their own goals, motives, pain, life story and more. Everything depends on them.

I finished this book over my vacation to Hawaii and wow…there are honestly no words. This book was absolutely amazing and beautifully written! Honestly, no review I write will do this masterpiece justice so here’s a short review.


Best Friends by Shannon Hale and LeUyen Pham (Real Friends #2)

Sixth grade is hard. New friends form, you loose old friends, your body changes, puberty starts and everyone starts the awkward pre-dating experience. This book follows Shannon and her group of friends through the changes and trials of junior high.

The sequel to the award-winning graphic novel memoir, “Real Friends.” Shannon Hale does not disappoint. Her depiction of anxiety and friendship in middle school was so accurate. I highly recommend reading both books from her.


Up Next…

The full review 🙂

Thanks for stopping by, reading, and sharing your thoughts.

  1. Oh this is so wild, but both Thunderhead and Six of Crows are my internal “must reads” just as soon as possible. I dropped by the public library just before it closed for lockdown to get a copy of Thunderhead and I ordered a copy of Six of Crows (that I probably would have already read by now if my 14 year old hadn’t taken it for himself, lol). I can’t wait to read these! Thanks for sharing and have a fantastic reading week, Destiny.

  2. Six of Crows is one of my all time favourite books. The sequel, Crooked Kingdom was as good if not better. I hope you manage to read it. I tried and tried to read Scythe, but it never worked for me. I agree with you that “Real Friends” by Shannon Hale does not disappoint. I loved both of these books so much!
