I started reading Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined by Stephenie Meyer before bed this week. I know it’s just a genderbent version of Twilight, but I am enjoying the unique re-reading experience of it. It’s a bit of a challenge trying to reimagine the characters as a different sex when you’ve pictured them one way for so long, but it’s a welcomed challenge. I am enjoying it so much I am definitely going to take my time to read it and savor the experience.
This week I am diving into These Shallow Graves by Jennifer Donnelly. I’t’s set in New York during the gilded age and the main female character is Josephine Montford. She comes from a very wealthy family with old money. In the first few chapters Jo finds out her father is dead, shot by his own gun. The authorities are calling it accidental, but Jo knows doesn’t believe them at all.
I need a book to grab me quickly or I loose interest, this one is flowing nicely and keeping my attention, I can’t wait to find out what really happened because I’m certain this story is going to end with betrayal of the worse kind.
This week I’m still reading Until We Meet Again by Renee Collins. I started it last week actually, and got really into it… but then I went on vacation this past weekend and haven’t picked it up again. I plan to though! I’m really intrigued so far. These two characters meet on the beach by their summer homes and it turns out they are each living in different times! YOU GUYS! He’s from the 1920s and he’s an aspiring poet… *SIGH* She seems bratty so far, but I hope it changes soon.
