Monday and I'm Reading

This is a weekly meme hosted by J. Kaye's Book Blog. Each week on Monday we tell what we read the previous week and what we plan to read in the upcoming week. I also try to add in what new books are being released this week.

I'll be starting: The Dark Divine. Can't wait to get into it!

This past week I finished Ghostgirl by Tonya Hurley (watch for my review)

From Goodreads:
Charlotte Usher feels practically invisible at school, and then one day she really is invisible. Even worse: she's dead. And all because she choked on a gummy bear. But being dead doesn't stop Charlotte from wanting to be popular; it just makes her more creative about achieving her goal.

If you thought high school was a matter of life or death, wait till you see just how true that is. In this satirical, yet heartfelt novel, Hurley explores the invisibility we all feel at some times and the lengths we'll go to be seen.

Coming out this week:  Witch & Wizard by James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet

From Goodread
The world is changing: the government has seized control of every aspect of society, and now, kids are disappearing. For 15-year-old Wisty and her older brother Whit, life turns upside down when they are torn from their parents one night and slammed into a secret prison for no reason they can comprehend. The New Order, as it is known, is clearly trying to suppress Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Being a Normal Teenager. But while trapped in this totalitarian nightmare, Wisty and Whit discover they have incredible powers they'd never dreamed of. Can this newly minted witch and wizard master their skills in time to save themselves, their parents--and maybe the world?

Sounds like it could be interesting!


  1. I've read Witch and Wizard and I enjoyed it. James Patterson does dystopia. It was a really quick read.

  2. Oh, I want to read Witch and Wizard. It sounds cool. And I have Ghostgirl but haven't read it yet. I'm interested to hear what you think.
