Mondays with Megan-Staycation Reading! 2/23/15

Happy Monday, friends. I still feel like I am neglecting this poor little blog, but I am certainly not neglecting my reading! This brutal winter weather is a perfect excuse to read and binge watch Supernatural. If you aren’t already a fan, I highly recommend checking out some demon slaying action with the Winchesters. These guys are dreamy! You don’t meet Cas until Season 4, but he’s my favorite!

Anyway. That’s my current obsession. I am currently rationing Season 7. I may have also mentioned before that I am reading my way through the Adult Graphic Novel collection at work. As I am newly responsible for maintaining this collection I feel obligated to really get to know it. So far it has been a lot fun.

Finished:

crossover walking dead 21 walking dead 22 girl on the train zahra lock in

  • Crossover by Kwame Alexander-♥♥♥♥♥. This 2015 Newbery Winner SIZZLES. A heartfelt novel in verse about brothers and fathers and basketball. Loved it.
  • The Walking Dead 21: All Out War, Part 2 by Ron Kirkman-♥♥♥♥. Rick and crew have a final showdown with the villain Negan.
  • The Walking Dead 22: A New Beginning by Ron Kirkman-♥♥♥♥♥. The survivors face many changes. Don’t get too comfy though because an insanely disturbing new twist is revealed!
  • The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkin-♥♥♥♥♥. This debut thriller is being compared to Gone Girl. I never read that one, but I devoured this one in a day. I love unreliable narrators! This one lives up to the hype.
  • Zahra’s Paradise by Amir-♥♥♥♥. Set in the aftermath of the highly contested 2009 Iranian presidential elections, this graphic novel tells the story of one young protester who has disappeared, seemingly without a trace. Fact and fiction blend in this engrossing book. Many times I set it aside to search out more information.
  • Lock In by John Scalzi-♥♥♥♥. This Alex Award winner is fascinating and disturbing. An excellent choice for science fiction fans and fans of Ready Player One and James Dashner’s Morality Doctrine series.

Current Audio: (I didn’t do much driving or walking the dog this week!)

Happy Reading!

Mondays with Megan Readathon Review 4/28/14

Happy Monday *yawn* *reaches for more coffee*! This weekend I participated in my sixth Dewey’s 24-Hour Readathon. I love this online reading challenge for so many reasons. First and foremost because it is an excuse to sit around and read all day (and night) long. I also love the online camaraderie it builds as you explore new blogs and complete mini challenges. And if I am being completely honest, I kind of love the excuse to snack. Snacks are important. Anyway. I made it to Hour 18 this year and finished 5 and 2/3 books. Sound like fun? Consider signing up for the October challenge!

Here’s a quick check-in with Book Journey and Teach Mentor Texts for another round of It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

  • The Dust of 100 Dogs by A.S King-this is her debut novel and the last of her books that I needed to read. Emer Morrisey is pirate who is cursed to live the life of 100 dogs. When the curse is fulfilled she is able to pick up where she left of. Sort of. This was an odd and entertaining book and I enjoyed it, but I am glad this was not my introduction to A.S. King.
  • Nantucket Red by Leila Howland is the sequel to Nantucket Blue. The story picks up shortly after the end of the first book with Cricket and her boyfriend (no spoilers!). The new relationship comes with complications and to add to that Cricket needs to plan for college. I know that is vague! I really enjoyed the continuation of Cricket’s story. This is a fun summer romance, but start with the first book!
  • Breakfast Served Anytime by Sarah Combs is a lovely and charming debut novel. Gloria is a collector of the written word. She signs up for a summer workshop at the local college that offers a mysterious sounding class called Secrets of the Written Word. She leaves her dad, her best friend, and all connects to social media behind and embarks on a summer of discovery.
  • The Walking Dead vols 18-20 by Robert Kirkman. Brutal.
  • The Bar Code Tattoo by Suzanne Weyn. This book was recommended to me by a teen reader. I am glad she enjoyed it, but this book inspired rage in me. I am not ready to talk about it! Needless to say, I will not be reading the rest in the series.

Mondays With Megan-Vacation Starts Tomorrow. My Brain Left Today.

Seriously. No. Focus. At this time tomorrow I will be at the airport waiting to board a plane that will take me to Montana and I am so flipping excited. My suitcase isn’t packed, but my Nook is all loaded and ready to go! But I will get to that in a minute. For the past few days I have been wracking my brain, trying to figure out how it has taken me ten years to watch Firefly. Well, I finally drank the Kool-Aid and all I can say is mmmmmmmm….grape. I mean, shiny. I mean, Nathan Fillion. *Sigh* This is my brain right now. Montana and Mal. That’s it. No room for anything else.

You’re welcome. Now, if I you can tear myself yourself away, let’s do It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? Brought to you by Book Journey and Teach Mentor Texts.

My Vacation Plan:

I am sitting out on the skiing this trip (one skiing related torn ACL is totally enough for me) and plan to hang at the lodge and read. We’ll see how much I get through, but I really want to finish A Dance With Dragons. I have to get on my with my life!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
