It's Monday! What Are You Reading?



It's Monday What Are You Reading is weekly meme which is started by Sheila from One Persons Journey Through a World of Books.

Last week I plan to read these books below. But I only could finish The Spellman Files. Still try to catch up with Good Omens and Vampyre Kisses .


I was so busy with my yearly report . So none of my reviews is posted.
They are still on my draft :(.

This Week I plan to read these books below. But after finishing Good Omens and Vampyre Kisses

Tally has finally become pretty. Now her looks are beyond perfect, her clothes are awesome, her boyfriend is totally hot, and she's completely popular. It's everything she's ever wanted.

But beneath all the fun -- the nonstop parties, the high-tech luxury, the total freedom -- is a nagging sense that something's wrong. Something important. Then a message from Tally's ugly past arrives. Reading it, Tally remembers what's wrong with pretty life, and the fun stops cold.

Now she has to choose between fighting to forget what she knows and fighting for her life -- because the authorities don't intend to let anyone with this information survive

Pretties is the second book of Uglies. I love the cover. It is so cute. I hope the story inside is as good as the first book. Cant wait to start reading this book.

And I chose this book below which is written by Japanese Author.

Another roller-coaster ride from a master of the
psycho-thriller!

It looked as though Maki had another mouth below her jaw. Oozing from this second, smiling mouth was a thick, dark liquid, like coal tar. Her throat had been slit literally from ear to ear and more than halfway through, so that it looked as if her head might fall right off. And yet, incredibly, Maki was still on her feet and still alive, her eyeballs swiveling wildly and her lips quivering as she wheezed foam-flecked blood from the wound in her throat. She seemed to be trying to say something. . . .

It is just before New Year's. Frank, an overweight American tourist, has hired Kenji to take him on a guided tour of Tokyo's sleazy nightlife on three successive evenings. But Frank's behavior is so strange that Kenji begins to entertain a horrible suspicion: that his new client is in fact the serial killer currently terrorizing the city. It isn't until the second night, however, in a scene that will shock you and make you laugh and make you hate yourself for laughing, that Kenji learns exactly how much he has to fear and how irrevocably his encounter with this great white whale of an American will change his life.

Kenji's intimate knowledge of Tokyo's sex industry, his thoughtful observations and wisecracks about the emptiness and hypocrisy of contemporary Japan, and his insights into the shockingly widespread phenomena of "compensated dating" and "selling it" among Japanese schoolgirls, give us plenty to think about on every page. Kenji is our likable, if far from innocent, guide to the inferno of violence and evil into which he unwillingly descends-and from which only Jun, his sixteen-year-old girlfriend, can possibly save him. . . .

I hope no more pending review and books for this week. Because my TBR list is getting longer.

So what are you reading?

With Bloggiesta this weekend I started building my January Review post and am pleased to see that I am reading so much more post marathon (I have time to read).

Have a great week!

I like that cover of Pretties! The US edition (that I have anyway) isn't that cool. I hope to start the Uglies series soon, I've had them FOREVER!

Vasilly said...

I love the cover of Pretties. Candace is right: the US cover isn't that great. Happy reading!

I enjoyed Uglies and Pretties, but haven't continued yet with the rest of the series. I need to pick Specials/Extras sometime.

Elena said...

I've seen quite a few people buying the Scott Westerfield books, but haven't read any of them yet myself.

The1stdaughter said...

Don't feel bad about the reviews! I had the same problem last week but definitely not as good of an excuse. :o)

Love the cover on Pretties! It's not as nice here.

Enjoy and have a fabulous week reading! Thank you so much for stopping by earlier!

Kristin said...

If it wasn't for participating in Bloggiesta last weekend, I would have a ton of reviews waiting to be finished...I always seemed to get backed up on that!

I haven't heard of any of your books - will wait for your reviews to see if they are my type of read.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
