It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Welcome to It’s Monday! What Are You Reading! This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!

Last week I read:

Legend of a Ninja: Beneath the Shadows

Legend of a Ninja is a series that explores the world of the ninja. With an anime style and a fantasy setting, the YA stories are focused on relationships and characters.

In the prequel, Beneath the Shadows, see how The Order of the ninja is controlled by very powerful ninjas. Keeping the shadows balanced becomes a very difficult task when a ninja chooses to openly defy the Iofrehn clan.

In the Iofrehn clan, relationships are forbidden. Seen as a weakness, love itself is a curse to the clear mind and focus of a true ninja. But when one ninja seeks permission to love, his struggle for survival will shake The Order of ninjas to its core.

Can you still trust your heart when the secrets beneath the shadows are revealed?

This week I'm reading:

The Vampire Underground (Grisly High, No. 1)
16-year-old Brin Skar hates everything to do with the supernatural, so the obsessive film geek isn't happy when she discovers that her junior year Film class at Grisly High is devoted to the horror genre. She's even more disconcerted when she learns that six groups in the class will be writing and directing their very own horror movies.

Brin and five classmates travel to Bodie Ghost Town in California to shoot their creepy film, but they soon find themselves fighting a real terrifying threat when a clan of mean, bloodthirsty vampires emerge from beneath the surface and start attacking the group. The teens, headed by Brin and the egotistical director Anaya Frost, have no help from the outside and become outnumbered by the vampires a hundred to one.

But when Brin meets Paul, a helpful and smoldering vampire outcast who's had enough of his shameful life, she realizes he might be the only key to her survival.

Next I'm going to read:

Violet Midnight (The Enchanters, #1)
He knew she was gone the second her cool touch withdrew from his arm. He never saw her but had felt her disappear into some cold, dark place. He perceived the black emptiness where she had been summoned, her deep anxiety filling his heart. But he couldn't reach her. He didn't even know her name.

Elias moved to Hazel Grove, California to get away from the rain, his parents, and everything that was taken from him in Hayward, Washington. But he thinks he may be going crazy when he starts seeing purple glitter in the air, the scent of rosemary is everywhere, and he is hearing a beautiful voice.

Jane is content in her life of solitude in the quiet town of Jasmyn Lake, but when her special magic sends her on a journey to meet the man she has been dreaming about for months, she cannot resist.

Look into the world of The Enchanters, where water has a sense of humor, trees scare people, and love - is destiny.
