It's Monday, What Are You Reading (1/31)


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 just could post one review, Magna by Nicole O'dell.
I think I need to learn more how to write review and not to left them as draft.

The book that I have finished reading The Good Omen and The Hollow by Jessica Verday . The last book was not on my plan. I read it because my friend wanted me to check the typo.

I am still reading In The Miso Soup, Pretties and The Vampyre Kisses. I think I need my own ebook reader. I have not got used to read ebook. :(

Now move to the book that I plan to read for this week.

Ghostgirl : Rest In Popularity

"Now I lay me down to sleep,

I pray the Lord my soul to keep.

And if I should die before I awake,

I pray the popular attend my wake."

~~~

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.

That's the first book of Ghostgirl. I also plan to read The Second book. They have been in my bookshelf FOREVER. Penerbit Atria, the local publisher, is about to published the third book, Ghostgirl: Lovesick.

Ghostgirl : Homecoming

Heaven couldn't be a phone bank, could it?

Charlotte Usher discovers that the afterlife isn't quite what she pictured when she's forced to intern at a hotline for troubled teens. Before she can officially cross over, she'll have to be a source of guidance for one such teen. The problem is she doesn't have much advice to offer since dying hasn't exactly boosted her confidence level.

But when Hawthorne High's leading, love-to-hate cheerleader Petula and her gothic little sis' Scarlet find themselves suddenly resting-in-peace in comas, Charlotte's opportunity to save them will prove to be the risk of a lifetime-for all of them

The covers are lovely, aren't they?. Those are above are Indonesian design. I also have checked the US cover. They are also gorgeous.

I hope I can write more review next month. Big hope that review challenge will help me a lot.

So What are you reading, guys?

I think my daughter would love the Ghostgirl books. Like you, I tend to have reviews sort of piling up. I made a book review template which helps ... I just copied the html code from one of my book review posts into a draft, saved it as TEMPLATE - BOOK REVIEW - and it saves some time. I just switch out the picture, the links, and such and change the words for the review. Writing the review still takes the longest time, but I keep notes as I read, so that when I scan them, the book will be fresh in my mind again.

I do love the covers of those Ghostgirl books. I think that's the reason they made it on my to-read list. Enjoy your week!

Thanks for stopping by today! If you ever get a chance to start the J.D. Robb series you should start with Naked in Death (it is the first one). I have never seen the Ghostgirl books but they look fun. I may have to check them out. :-D

How impressive that you share so much on your blog in English which I am guessing is not your native or first language. Those covers are cute! Happy reading!
