Monday with Megan-Still No Time to Read! 9/15/14

I have been living a relatively drama free life for a while now. Apparently the universe found out and decided I was due for some chaos! Luckily it’s nothing I can’t handle, but it really is cutting into my reading time. I am counting October to be a calmer, book-filled month. Until then, I will continue to plug away at my books when I can.

Oh! I did recently learn that Cassandra Clare and Holly Black will be at my local Barnes & Noble in October! Northeast Ohio is like a black hole when it comes to author visits. This is EPIC! This is HUGE! I am so freaking excited! I will use all of the !!!!

Ok, time for another brief Monday check-in.

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

Finished:

legend last dragonslayer

  •  Legend by Marie Lu. I reread this one for the third time for my book club. It really is fantastic dystopian.
  • The Last Dragonslayer by Jasper Fforde. At Kazam, an employment agency for magicians, work is hard to come by. Modern conveniences are cheap and magic is not as powerful as it once was. But when the death of the last dragon is predicted, many in the magical community take this as a sign of chance, as a sign that Big Magic is coming. For Jennifer Strange, a foundling and manager of Kazam, big changes are in store for her. I am so happy that I randomly picked this audiobook. It is charming and funny and magical. I love the ethical dilemmas, the jabs at corporations and greed, and most of all, the quarkbeast. My middle school book club is clamoring to read fantasy and this will be the first one I hand them. Loved it.

Current Audio:

say what you will seven

  • Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern. This is my dog walking book. I am enjoying it more than I had expected.
  • Seven for a Secret by Lyndsay Faye. This is sequel to Gods of Gotham, another pleasant surprise for me!

Currently Reading:

feed secret place firebug letters from skye

  • Feed by M.T. Anderson. I am rereading this for my high school book club. It is pretty disturbing. Facebook is like one step away from a feed…
  • The Secret Place by Tana French. The fifth book in the Dublin Murder Squad series. I want to be reading this one ALL. The. Time. *shakes fist at job*
  • Firebug by Lish McBride. I swear it just started getting REALLY good. Why don’t I have time to read? WHY?
  • Letters from Skye by Jessica Brockmole. This is the perfect bedtime book. I read a few letters at a time and then it’s lights out.

On Deck:

I don’t even know where to begin…

Mondays with Megan

I don’t know about you, but I am finding this back to school year totally overwhelming. Work is busy, outside of work is busy. I have hardly had any time for reading! Luckily what I have been reading has been awesome. I have just enough time for a quick Monday check-in!

Finished:

romeo redeemed life by committee gods of gotham dark triumph

  • Romeo Redeemed by Stacey Jay-Excellent sequel to Juliet Immortal.
  • Life by Committee by Corey Ann Haydu-Mixed feelings about this one. I did not like the Tabitha/Joe relationship.
  • The Gods of Gotham by Lyndsay Faye-randomly picked this audiobook and loved it! Historical fiction about the beginning of the NYPD.
  • Dark Triumph by Robin LaFever-The best of the bunch! The sequel to Grave Mercy, follows Sybella’s heartbreaking story. Intense and awesome!
