It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? (3)

Huh, this seems to be the only kind of post I have time for right now! Ah, working in retail.

Books I finished this week:

The Maze Runner (Maze Runner, #1)
The Maze Runner by James Dashner: Eh. I liked it, will read the next, but it’s no Hunger Games.

Books I am currently reading/listening to:

Push: A Novel

I am re-reading Push by Sapphire. It’s as gritty and beautiful as I remember. I read it a while back when I was fresh out of high school. I found that while fluffy stuff like Sloppy Firsts no longer appeals to me after 15 years, meaningful things like Push (the basis for the movie Precious) really stay with me. When I’m done I think I’ll re-read another old favorite, like Kindred by Octavia Butler or Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston. I don’t actually own copies of those anymore (my cousin Jerome in the Philippines has them, I think), so will have to re-buy.

I’m also reading Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld. I love this guest post he wrote on Joe Scalzi’s blog.

Books I haven’t started yet, but recently acquired:


The Boy Detective Fails (Punk Planet Books)

Rasl Volume 1: The Drift

Bone Rose (Bone (Prebound))

Johnny the Homicidal Maniac: Director's Cut

Squee's Wonderful Big Giant Book of Unspeakable Horrors

Fables: Legends in Exile (Volume 1)

Y: The Last Man Vol. 1: Unmanned

The Sandman Vol. 1: Preludes and Nocturnes + through Vol. 5

What can I say, the husband is on a huge graphic novel kick and I promised to read them all, too.

Also acquired from David Y at last night’s YABC meeting:

Death Note, Volume 3: Hard Run + through Vol. 9

Let’s just hope I get some reading done this week.

    Then I need to read The Maze Runner before Hunger Games. 😉

    I read up to a certain Vol. (can’t remember which) for Y. I really love that it’s exploring what happens to the world when something like that occurs, I just really hate the main guy and his personal issues. I’d rather explore what happens in the world then and just forget about him entirely, lol.
