Mondays With Megan on a Mental Health Day

Hi All! I am enjoying a random day off, and after my busy weekend I totally need it. I thought I would spend the day catching up on some reading (Goodreads tells me I am 5 books behind schedule. Curse you Goodreads.), but instead I am catching up on some Parks and Recreation episodes. I have decided that readathons are for catching up on reading. Mental health days are for sit-com marathons. Ok, time for a quick check in with my favorite Monday hosts, Book Journey and Teach Mentor Texts for It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? Trust me, this will be brief.

Finished:

  supremes adortation

I really enjoyed The Supremes at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat by Edward Kelsey Moore. It is charming, touching, and quite hilarious. I also reread The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson for my teen book club. This is a great book club selection-it’s full of great discussion issues. And that is it. Two measly, but great, book. Of course I am so close to finishing a couple of others…

Almost Finished:

poison jellicoe road

I totally slacked on the elliptical last week, so I am not quite finished with Poison by Bridget Zinn, but I am motivated to be better this week. I have a disc and a half left of Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta. I am sold. I was skeptical at first, but I got sucked in.

Slowly But Surely:

On Deck:

That’s all. Back to my marathon.

Happy Reading!

  1. I have got to get started with those Cassandra Clare books! I hope to be underway before movies start coming out.

    I really enjoyed Poison. It was so much fun.

  2. Yay! Glad you finally got sucked in with Jellicoe Road. EVERY person I know that has read it has been “meh” in the beginning and “I’m in love!” by the end!
    I can’t wait to read Poison. What a tragic story with the author 😦
    Also, you will love Mind Games! It’s pretty intense!

  3. Is Clockwork Princess out? I have been waiting to read that! Lol. Now I must run to the book store! 🙂 Have a great week, enjoy your books!

  4. The book-gods have spoken…I must start Clockwork Prince. And, what a terrific cover for Jenna Fox! Jellicoe Road has been on my TBR stack, time to move it on up! I had a mental health day with Public Radio this weekend since they were airing South By Southwest from Austin, TX. Fulfilled my music soul–now I need to get back to my reading soul.

  5. Ahhh, you can never have too many mental health days. I live with 4 boys, my mental health days are watching chick flicks or things that don’t involve superheroes, Star Wars or cartoons. Hope you’re recharged and have a great reading week!
