It's Monday! What are you Reading? *3*

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week.  It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs,  and put new titles on your reading list. Hosted by Book Journey .

I haven't participated  this meme for while because I was reading the same book for weeks since I didn't have time to finish it.  So I'm back.


What I am Currently Reading:
The Iron Daughter: Julie Kagawa
Synopsis: Goodreads

Half Summer faery princess, half human, Meghan has never fit in anywhere. Deserted by the Winter prince she thought loved her, she is prisoner to the Winter faery queen. As war looms between Summer and Winter, Meghan knows that the real danger comes from the Iron fey—ironbound faeries that only she and her absent prince have seen. But no one believes her.
Worse, Meghan's own fey powers have been cut off. She's stuck in Faery with only her wits for help. Trusting anyone would be foolish. Trusting a seeming traitor could be deadly. But even as she grows a backbone of iron, Meghan can't help but hear the whispers of longing in her all-too-human heart.

So far this book is okay. Vampirebookclub.net rated this book one if the best books of 2010. I usually enjoy the books they rate and love their reviews. If I remember correctly they said this book was just as good as Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead who of course I love so that's why I originally started this series. But so far its been okay. I have been a little annoyed because I realized this whole series is a journey to somewhere for some reason. They will always be traveling between realms and Meghan will always almost get eaten. I guess I don't mind if one book is a series is like that but it's my favorite kind of plot for a whole series. For example Harry Potter: I feel like in Deathly Hallows Harry was on a quest you never knew what could happen because you were at the mercy of JK  Rowling, and that's what I feel this whole series is like. There is Order of the Phoenix where the main character stays in specific kind of place where the plot of the stories maintains. But the book isn't bad it's just not my preference. Anyways I am rambling on.
What I Plan on Reading:
The Iron Queen: Julie Kagawa
Synopsis: Goodreads

My name is Meghan Chase.
I thought it was over. That my time with the fey, the impossible choices I had to make, the sacrifices of those I loved, was behind me. But a storm is approaching, an army of Iron fey that will drag me back, kicking and screaming. Drag me away from the banished prince who's sworn to stand by my side. Drag me into the core of conflict so powerful, I'm not sure anyone can survive it.
This time, there will be no turning back.

I hope this book gives a good series ending. I don't know what to expect since I haven't finished the iron daughter. but we will see what happens.


So what are you reading this Monday??
