What are YOU reading? #172

What are you reading on Monday? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey where you post books completed last week and plans for upcoming books. Jump over to her blog and see who else is participating.


Last Chance Angel by Alex Gutteridge
Young Adult
(I cried a bit at the end - everyone needs to read Jess's journey...)

Rules of Summer by Joanna Philbin
Young Adult
(Pleasantly not just about teen romance - the other plots are fascinating!)

Crash by Nicole Williams
New Adult
Both 4/10 and 8/10
(There isn't nearly as much ballet in the story as I expected, but it did make me laugh [for the wrong reasons!] hence the two grades.)


H20: Just Add Water
REWATCH! - Drama, English version
(As I realised I'd finished disc 3 of 4 on season 1, I did go 'oh' as it's such a fun, mostly light watch. Still, got 2 more seasons and can keep rewatching it!) 

Winx: Season 4
REWATCH! - Anime, French version
(Part of me wishes there were more episodes of the Winx with Lovix & Sophix - I love the transformations for those!) 

Winx: A Magical Adventure
REWATCH! - Anime, film
(I confess to skipping a few scenes as I find them too scary [What? I scare easily!] All the other scenes are super fun!) 

Winx 4 Special 1
off episodes produced by Nickelodeon as a prelude to season 5
Anime, English version
4/10 & 8/10
(They have two grades - there are an awful lot of changes which I didn't always like [clothes & music to name a few], I understand they are giving readers the key story of season 1 & season 2, but so much character development is left out. The new style animation is appealing but I miss the old one and some characters look meaner. Translation wise meanings are jumbled which give the viewer the wrong impression. But on the other hand it's shorter than watching both seasons all at once, which is why it gets an 8.) 

Winx: Season 5
REWATCH! - Anime, French version
(*happy sigh* Season 5 is very wow, like season 4. Winx Harmonix! Winx Sirenix! *hums transformation tunes* )

Holby City
Drama, English version
(As I summarized in a text to a friend: "Stupid Sacha, Ollie made me cry, Jack made me laugh [in this case Jack is a girl's name] & I cheered Chrissie on" )

Waterloo Road
Drama, English version
(Melodrama at it's best with an animal rights protest getting out of hand at the school...) 

I've wound up yarn into neat balls - the shape they come in can knot, so I always redo them - and I've made another crochet square for the elderly with some funky colours!

What a fun meme! Sounds like you've been busy, I'm lucky to finish 1 book in a week. I hope all is well, thanks for your hard work.
