It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (2/7)



It's Monday! What Are You Reading is weekly meme which is started by Sheila from One Persons Journey Through a World of Books. It's been a year since the first post. But for me this is the 8th week

Last week, I read
  • In The Miso Soup,
  • Pretties,
  • Ghostgirl #1: Rest In Popularity, and
  • Vampyre Kisses.
I will try to write the review and post it here.

My currently reading is Ghostgirl #2 : Homecoming by Tonya Harley. I am also reading Vampire Academy #1 . The picture below is Indonesian cover.


From Goodreads

St. Vladimir's Academy isn't just any boarding school—it's a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They've been on the run, but now they're being dragged back to St. Vladimir's—the very place where they're most in danger...

Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy's ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi—the world's fiercest and most dangerous vampires—make Lissa one of them forever.

Finally I understand what they call as Moroi and Dhampir. I love this book.

This week I plan to Human Blend by Lori Pescatore. It's a self publish book. I got it from a giveaway that was hosted by Moonlight Gleam.

From Goodreads
Marion, Virginia seemed like a nice place to live a normal life, but she is not a normal girl. Laney has special abilities that keep her looking over her shoulder as she makes her escape from the men who had kidnapped her. A young doctor's interest is piqued when he witnesses her mysteriously curing a young child's illness. He befriends her due to his growing fascination with uncovering the true nature of her abilities, but not without harboring secrets of his own. Laney's budding relationship with a local boy puts both of them in danger when the men she was hiding from find her. All of their lives will change forever as ancient secrets become unearthed

Frostbite (Vampire Academy 2) is also on my list

From Goodreads
Rose loves Dimitri, Dimitri might love Tasha, and Mason would die to be with Rose…

It's winter break at St. Vladimir's, but Rose is feeling anything but festive. A massive Strigoi attack has put the school on high alert, and now the Academy's crawling with Guardians—including Rose's hard-hitting mother, Janine Hathaway. And if hand-to-hand combat with her mom wasn't bad enough, Rose's tutor Dimitri has his eye on someone else, her friend Mason's got a huge crush on her, and Rose keeps getting stuck in Lissa's head while she's making out with her boyfriend, Christian! The Strigoi are closing in, and the Academy's not taking any risks… This year, St. Vlad's annual holiday ski trip is mandatory.
But the glittering winter landscape and the posh Idaho resort only create the illusion of safety. When three friends run away in an offensive move against the deadly Strigoi, Rose must join forces with Christian to rescue them. But heroism rarely comes without a price…
The translation of the third book is already published also. But I have not purchased it

What are you reading? and w
hat do you think about the Vampire Academy #1 and #2 covers?

aku nemuin 1984 di toko buku loak di pinggir jalan :)

kamu ikutan goodreads juga? kalo iya, kamu pasti tahu Mbak Threez yang bisa baca 10ribuan buku kemaren tahun 2010 (a whole year). gila ngga tuh? kadang aku mikir, emang ngga ada kerjaan lainnya? atau kadang aku mikir, jangan-jangan dia cuman speed reading aja..

btw, maaf ya sebelumnya, bukan niat mau jualan sih, cuma kebetulan aja aku suka buku dan aku juga ada online shop di FB, bukumoo satu dua tiga. You could go there and click the NOVEL IMPOR album. :) its okay if u r not into buy something online. Plus, manado-jakarta is far enough for the shipping cost. I know that ;)

Haven't read Vampire Academy yet. I should really get on that.

LOVED Pretties.

I've had Ghostgirl sitting on my shelf for a long time. Should really get to that as well.

I've read Vampire Academy and really enjoyed it but Richelle Mead is one of my must reads (at least for the Succubus collection).

Thanks for swinging by my blog on the hop. Looks like you have a full week of reading planned.
