It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (24)
This is a fun weekly meme hosted by One Persons Journey Through a World of Books.
Books read last week:
Freaksville by Kitty Keswick
Fractured by Joanna Karaplis
The Perfect Love Song by Patti Callahan Henry
Changeling by Yasmine Galenorn
The book I'm reading now:
Dreaming Anastasia by Joy Preble:
What really happened to Anastasia Romanov?
Anastasia Romanov thought she would never feel more alone than when the gunfire started and her family began to fall around her. Surely the bullets would come for her next. But they didn't. Instead, two gnarled old hands reached for her. When she wakes up she discovers that she is in the ancient hut of the witch Baba Yaga, and that some things are worse than being dead.
In modern-day Chicago, Anne doesn't know much about Russian history. She is more concerned about getting into a good college—until the dreams start. She is somewhere else. She is someone else. And she is sharing a small room with a very old woman. The vivid dreams startle her, but not until a handsome stranger offers to explain them does she realize her life is going to change forever. She is the only one who can save Anastasia. But, Anastasia is having her own dreams…
Books that spark my interest this week:
Once A Witch by Carolyn MacCullough
Nightwalker by Jocelyn Drake
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
