What are YOU reading? #154

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.


The Farm by Emily McKay
Young Adult
(This dark dystopian is sweetened with a small but constant shred of hope and immense love between twin sisters...)

Fairy Lies by E D Baker
Children's, 11 years +
(Fairies, mermaids, trolls and sphinxes can be found in Tamisin's chaotic life...)

Prince Of Light by K C Rivers
Young Adult
(Evanthe's tale is incredible; it belongs with some other books that I literally hug and squee about!)

Dance Dreams by Malaika Rose Stanley
Children's, 9 years +
(Keisha learns that ballet and best friends CAN go together!)

Socks by Elizabeth Lindsay & Nick Sharratt
Children's, Picture book
(Bright, colourful and loud, this will bring delight to old and new sock lovers...)


Second Term At Trebizon by Anne Digby
Children's, 9 years +
(Although I half remembered the story, the plot twists still had a shocking effect on me.)


Spice and Wolf
Japanese, Anime
(I'm starting again from the beginning, in the hope I will watch it all this time. I had forgotten how funny it is!)

Shugo Chara
REWATCH! - Japanese, Anime
(I love Su, Amu's chara, how she thinks and her interesting views on life!)

REWATCH! - Japanese, Anime
(Now that the girls know who their idol Wish really is, it is easier for them to trust him...)

Bodacious Space Pirates
Japanese, Anime
(An awesome series, with a semi-predictable ending which didn't matter because I was having heaps of fun!!)

The Glass Mask
French, Anime
(I was as surprised as the heroine Laura when she realised what her teacher had been trying to make her learn [which easily verged on abuse due to the cruel training
method Laura is forced to undergo]...)

Japanese, Anime
(An incredible tale about a girl growing up with telepathy. It is simulcast a week or so after episodes premier in Japan, so I can't race ahead to the end yet! Drat!)

Eclipse aka Twilight #3
REWATCH! - Film, English
(This always cheers me up and never gets old.  Might have skipped a scene I'm not keen on though...)

Tinker Bell and the Secret of the Wings
Animated, English
(I was able to focus on the characters more than the story. I love the feel good friendship vibes...)

Breaking Dawn #1 akaTwilight #4
REWATCH! - Film, English
(The final movie is out in just over a month - squee! Yes I skipped the romance scene and about 2 Jake scenes I find dull...)

Again no gaming and only a little sewing. Been really tired, which was probably the start of this cold I'm currently brewing. No photo today.

Some great books read there, I've seen The Farm around quite a lot recently - might have to add it to my wishlist! I'm waiting til I get Breaking Dawn Part 2 on bluray and then I shall watch all of them together, can't wait!
