Mondays With Megan 3/31/14

Happy Last Monday of March! I don’t know you guys, but here in Cleveland March came in like a lion and went out like one too! I did not appreciate that random blizzard on Saturday. Lots of exciting things are going on these days. Last week I added another dog to the mix and I officially have a pack. Maggie was reunited with her big brother Murphy. These two are my sister’s dogs and they are hanging with me for a while. They make my dog Kevin normal (I don’t mean make him look normal, they actually make him BE normal). It’s weird. In exciting book news, it’s time to sign up for another Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon! YES! Time to start a Readathon TBR pile for April 26th. Finally, I managed to bust out of my reading slump. So here is a quick check in:

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Book Journey and Teach Mentor Texts.

Finished:

out of the easy immortal rules twisted sisters flora

  • Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys was my Random Reads pick for March. I loved this book so much. I already posted a full review, so please check it out if you are interested.
  • The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa is another one that has been on my TBR list for a long time. She brings back the soulless predator vampires and I am a fan.
  • Twisted Sisters by Jen Lancaster was a random audio pick. This is my first book by this author. It seems that her fans seriously disliked this one. I found it strange, but entertaining. It’s the story of the Bishop sisters. Middle sister Reagan is a snobby, judgmental, stick in the mud, until a bizarre thing happens and she gets some much-needed perspective.
  • Flora and Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo is the 2014 Newbery Award winner. It is the illustrated adventures of a lonely girl and a squirrel with super powers. Quite adorable!

Current Audio:

siege and storm million suns

I am working my way through some series! Currently I have two book twos: Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo and A Million Suns by Beth Revis.

 Currently Reading:

grasshopper jungle far from you universe versus code name

Grasshopper Jungle by Andrew Smith is the current IT book. Far From You by Tess Sharpe is my current e-galley. The Universe Versus Alex Woods by Gavin Extence is my current Teen’s Choice selection and Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein is a reread for my high school book club.

On Deck:

Happy Reading!

  1. Thank you for spreading the word about the Readathon! Even as a host, I get just as excited every season! 🙂

  2. How do you guys get such good audio books? My public library has the same old audio titles year after year. I have to have audio books while I drive. The radio is too boring but a good story in the CD player made my drive easier.

    Grasshopper Jungle is my MUST READ book. My book budget is shot right now and I have put in a request for purchase at the local library. Fingers crossed that I can find a coy at Texas Library Association Conference.

    • I am lucky because I am in charge of ordering the Teen audiobooks and our adult audio collection is awesome. Ohio has fabulous libraries so if I don’t have it at my library it is super easy to borrow from another library in the state.

  3. Oh wow, you have quite a lot here. We have a copy of Flora & Ulysses that we have yet to read, definitely a part of my reading list that I need to check off. Plus Grasshopper Jungle which seems to be receiving a lot of love recently. 🙂 Enjoy the rest of your reading week.

  4. So many books I should read for work! I may need to pick up More Than This again and try to finish it.
