It's Monday! What are you Reading? [1]

Happy Monday! I have decided to start participating in the It's Monday! What are you Reading? link up over at Book Journey. It seems like it will be fun to start off the week with what I have been reading, and what I intend to read this week.

This week, I will be reading: 

1. Branded (Sinners Series #1) by Abi Ketner and Missy Kalicicki
NA - Sci-Fi (Dystopia), Fantasy, Romance
I started reading this book Saturday, and got about thirty percent of it read, staying up until midnight because I could not put it down (I usually go to bed by ten at the latest, so this is a BIG deal). I am reading it on my kindle and enjoying it very much so far! Make sure to stop back by the blog on Thursday to see the promo blitz and new cover for this book.

2. Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer
YA - Sci-Fi (Dystopia), Fantasy, Romance
I began reading this book last week, but things were a bit crazy at work (as often happens when you teach 130 middle school students every day), so I did not have a chance to finish like I had hoped. However, I am half way through and intend to finish within the next couple of days. I am loving this book, and cannot wait to pick up a copy of the next book in the series once I finish. I also convinced one of my middle school girls to check this one out of the library this week.

3. Divergent Thinking: YA Authors on Veronica Roth's Divergent Trilogy
Editor: Leah Wilson, Many YA authors contributed 
I received an e-arc of this book through NetGalley, and the publishing date is March 4th. So far, I am really enjoying this book. Different YA authors are contributing their ideas and thoughts on the ideals and themes we see in the Divergent Trilogy (which I am in love with). I'm not sure if a lot of young adults would enjoy this as it talks a lot about psychology and science, but I am enjoying it very much so far. Look out for a review next week.

What are you reading this week?

    1. Cinder has been great so far, you should read it when you have a chance! :)

  2. I am reading Branded this week too! Oh man,.. It is waay more intense than I was prepared for! But SO GOOD! Cinder is one of my FAVORITES :D I have a thing for retellings and adding the sci fi aspect to it just amps it up even more!

    1. Branded really is so intense! I was not expecting it, either! It's making it nearly impossible to put it down whenever I pick up my kindle! (Or I'll start reading it on my phone randomly.)

      I am loving Cinder so far. It took me a bit to get into the first couple of chapters, but now it's amazing, I really love the adaption!

  3. I've heard lots of good things about Cinder, I might have to add it to my ever growing to-read list!

    P.S. I've nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award! Info is here if you want to participate :)

    1. You should definitely add it to your list! My friend nagged me for months about reading it, and I'm glad that I finally did!

      Thank you so much! :)

  4. I love when a book makes me stay up too late! I hope you love all of your books this week.
