Jackie's 4get Me Nots

No vase can overflow if you never fill it up.

ImageWhat I Finished Reading

I’ve finished 2 out of the 3 books that I said I planned on reading this week. Which were If I Stay“, Morganville Vampires. I also read Where She Went by Gayle Forman and I rated these books a 3 out of 5 stars which means I liked them both but I didn’t think they were amazing. It is most likely due to the age factor. I am finding that most YA novels are just not doing it for me. I felt the same with Paranormalcy and the Need Series.

The other books in the Morganville Vampire series are on my to-read list definitely. I can tolerate these teenagers even the author :p 4 stars.

What I am Currently Reading.

Spiders Bite by Jennifer Estep is a totally different story and it’s right up my alley. I am loving it so far. Just as I enjoyed Hot Mama, I feel a connection with the author. I think I really like Jennifer Estep.

What I plan on reading

We’ll see. I’m going to have to pick up the next book in the Elemental Assassin series by Jennifer Estep and Volume 1 of the Morganville Vampires idk.

I have other books I planned on getting in May like City of Lost Souls and Insurgent but I also have plenty of books on my shelf that I could start on but meh, like I said, we’ll have to see what I’m in the mood for.

  1. If I Stay, Where She Went…. I would agree, good books… but not amazing.

    I try to spread out my YA so I don’t get buried in similar plots. My favorite read this week was I am Half-Sick of Shadows by Alan Bradley Please come see what else I’m reading.


    1. Jackie says:

      Ok I’ll stop by soon 🙂

    A sad little story from the library conference last year: I came that close to getting an ARC of Insurgent. That close. The publicist just ran out of copies when I walked up. 😦

    my It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
    I hope you’ll stop by and say hello!


    1. Jackie says:

      gosh that close eh? :p that’s too bad


  4. Karen says:

    I’m exactly the same with YA at the moment. I takes a lot for me to pick one up. The Morganville ones lasted the longest. I think it was book 7 or 8 I reached.


    1. Jackie says:

      I’m not a young adult anymore so ya . I keep trudging through them , yawning sometimes wondering when something good will happen but Morganville vampires were Ok

    I’m not familiar with your books this week – am going to have to check them out.

      There are so many books to read but thanks for stoppin by my blog this week


  6. I’m curious about the Forman books…hope you have a great week!



    1. Jackie says:

      Thanks. Have a great week yourself!


  7. I think YA novels are hit or miss. They are either AMAZING (Hunger Games or Maze Runner) or they are just OK and some are flat out embarrassing. I haven’t read the books you have mentioned, though.


    1. Jackie says:

      I never read Maze Runner but they were recommended to me


  8. I’m not a huge YA fan either but there have been a few that make me smile.
    Happy Reading this week! It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading??


    1. Jackie says:

      Thank you ! It’s hard to tell the good ones from the not so good just by reading reviews these days.
