Books of the week #7

In "Books of the week" I talk about the books I bought & received, the books I enjoyed reading and the books I'm reading right now & I'm planing to read next.

New books (all bought)
  • Epic Faily by Claire LaZebnik
  • Leviathan by Scott Westerfield
  • Bloodspell by Amalie Howard

In the last two weeks I didn't read anything because all of a sudden I was in a reading slump, but still there are two weeks that I read in the last seven days that I enjoyed a lot. So my two favorite books of the week are
  • Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Claire
  • Epic Fail by Claire LaZebnik

Right now I'm reading
  • Bloodspell by Amalie Howard
  • How to marry a duke by Vicky Dreiling

Next week I plan to read some of my preordered books which will hopefully arrive plus some books from my TBR pile
  • Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel
  • Lola and the boy next door by Stephanie Perkina
  • No rest for the wicked by Kresley Cole
  • The lying game by Sara Shepard

Which books are your favorites of the week?


  1. This time I had a YA reading week - "Lola and the Boy Next Door", "Epic Fail" and "Shut Out" by Kody Keplinger.
    Unfortunately I have to say that I was kind of disappointed in "Lola". It was still a great book, but the whole time I kept comparing it with "Anna" (which is stupid, but I just couldn't help it) and it just couln't fully measure up to it... St. Claire spoiled me xD... I did love the scenes where we got to revisit Anna and St. Claire, but the thing that just didn't work for me was the love-triangle. But I can't wait to see what you have to say about it.
    "Epic Fail" was just how you described it. Cute, funny and engaging. I really enjoyed it!
    "Shut Out" is a book I discovered by sheer luck and I'm soooooo happy about it. It's a sweet story that still manages to get across a very important message - the equality between men and women.

  2. @ Schenni: Wow, you had a great week! And once again you have a book I'm dieing to read :) When I get Lola I will try not to think of Anna too often.

    Yay that you also liked "Epic Fail". And great to hear that you enjoyed Shut Out, I enjoyed the first book by Keplinger but haven't read her new one so far. Bit I think I will get and read Shut out sometimes in the future.

    Wishing you a fantastic week!

  3. Thank you :] I'll try Keplinger's "The Duff" next and hope your reading slump will stay far far away (I just hate it when something like that happens - it's just such an uncomfortable and frustation feeling!)
    Have a great week yourself.

  4. I loved Leviathan and Behemoth. In fact, Behemoth was my favorite September read ... hope you'll enjoy them too :-)

  5. @ Schenni: Thanks.

    @ Kah Woei: That's good to hear. I'm really excited to read Leviathan because I love trying out new to me authors.
