Mondays With Megan 11/25/13

Happy Monday! My got myself out of my rut and I have my reading mojo back, just in time for a week-long staycation. I have to thank the bitter cold weather this weekend for driving me onto the couch and under the blankets. Really the only thing motivating me to brave the elements with the dogs was my fantastic new Playaway. I am already in vacation mode, so I am just going to get on with my list.

power of habit royal ranger animal armies naturals

See? Awesome week for me! If you haven’t read The Power of Habit yet, do it. Seriously awesome nonfiction. The Ranger’s Apprentice series finally (and sadly) comes to an end with The Royal Ranger. This book so nicely wraps things up. I loved it. Jeff Lemire’s Sweet Tooth series is really picking up. The third volume, Animal Armies, offers a few explanations and plenty of action. Finally, I read The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. I devoured this FBI mystery/thriller in one sitting yesterday. This was the perfect easy read to really get me out of my reading slump.

Current Audio:

I have one disc left in Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I don’t want it to end. I also started The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty. This is the engrossing audiobook that has gotten me out in the cold. The secret has been revealed and I am bracing myself for the fallout!

Currently Reading:


Another Stephanie Plum. She is always good for a quick and entertaining read.

Still Reading:

iron traitor born of illusion

Seriously. This has become a problem. Time to wrap these up!

Staycation Reads: So many choices!

The Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud is my next book on cd. I think I am finally going to get around to starting The Map of Time by Félix Palma. I have been eying this one for almost two years! I suspect that Marie Antoinette, Serial Killer by Katie Alender is going to be a quick, fun read. Of course, I could decide to scrap this plan and read something else off giant pile of books.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

  1. The Power of Habit looks great – a Malcolm Gladwell type of read.

  2. I agree — The Power of Habit sounds fascinating! I’m looking forward to Fan Girl. Great to know the audio works for that one!

  3. I love “staycations”… I never take them but I would love to!

  4. Ack! I’m behind. I still need to read The Lost Stories. Then Royal Ranger. That is such a fun series.
    And The Power of Habit looks interesting. Adding that to my will never get to the bottom of To Be Read list.
    Have a great Thanksgiving!

  5. One of the girls in my book club (GatheringReaders), an 11 year old, loves The Ranger’s Apprentice and has read all of the novels in the series. I do have Flanagan’s Sorcerer’s Apprentice if I’m not mistaken but haven’t read any of them yet. Soon. A week-long staycation sounds like the perfect time to read! How fun! I should do that this December. 🙂 Have a great reading week ahead of you!

  6. The Naturals looks like a great book…right up my alley. I agree that Stephanie Plum can be counted on for a fun and quick read. Enjoy your staycation and those fabulous audiobooks!

  7. I still haven’t read The Power of Habit, so that’s moving up on my reading list thanks to you! And I wasn’t a huge fan of Map of Time, so it’ll be interesting to see what you think of it when you get around to reading it. Hope you have a great vacation!
