Mondays with Megan-The End is Near 12/9/13

With just three and a half weeks left in 2013, the pressure is on to wrap up my reading goals. As of right now, I have 12 books to go to reach my 200 books goal. Normally this would be a concern, but you don’t need me to tell you that this is a crazy busy time of year! Between all the cooking and holiday decorating I did over the week I managed to squeeze in some reading and listening.

Check in with Book Journey and Teach Mentor Texts for more great lists!

Finished:

screaming girl named zippy iron traitor steelheart

I listened to Lockwood & Co.: The Screaming Staircase by Jonathon Stroud. This is the first book in a new series and it was fantastic and creepy. I enjoyed this more than his Bartimaeus series. I also listened to A Girl Named Zippy by Haven Kimmel. This one was laugh out loud hilarious. I FINALLY finished The Iron Traitor by Julie Kagawa. Just when I thought I was over the Chases and the fey…crazy cliffhanger ending! So, I will be tuning in for the next (last?) installment. Finally, I finished Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson. I have not read anything else by this author, but I think I will be adding his other books to by TBR list. This book was awesome. So awesome. Pure science fiction, tons of action, suspense, and twists and turns. I can’t wait for the next one…out next fall.

Current Audio:

fin husband list

In the car I have Fin & Lady by Cathleen Schine. So far it is quite charming. On Playaway I have The Husband List by Janet Evanovich and Dorien Kelly. This was a last minute grab and honestly, I am not sure I am going to continue on with it. There is not much substance here. In fact, writing this has made up my mind. I am off to look for a new Playaway.

Currently Reading:

champion  born of illusion

Today I am going to start Champion by Marie Lu. I am really excited for this one. I am also going to try to make progress in Born of Illusion. Seriously. I need to finish it.

On Deck:

I have a student who has been begging me to read this for ages…I am hoping to have it read by the time we meet for book club next week.

Happy Reading!

  1. I am in love with the cover for Born of Illusion–want to read this.

  2. Oh, you will love the Mara Dyer book! I love, love, love the two books in that series and can’t wait for the third book! Good luck getting your goal for the year!

  3. I just put the three titles in the Legend series on hold at the library. Plan to read this over the holidays when I have time to delve into a series. Have been hearing great things about Lockwood & Co.

  4. I was a huge fan of the Bartimaeus trilogy by Jonathan Stroud – I’d have to find Lockwood & Co. 🙂 Have a great reading week!

  5. Wasn’t that cliffhanger in the Iron Traitor a killer!

    Have a cheery week!

  6. I just got Lockwood & Co, and Steelheart. Good to know they are worthy of moving up in the TBR pile 🙂
