Oh hi! I forgot today was Monday. I’m so thrown off by my husband being home… yay three day weekends!!!
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment, and er… add to that ever growing TBR pile!
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by The Book Date.
Last week I was able to meet my goal of finishing The Final Empire. To get the second half of the book finished I ended up switching back and forth through e-book and graphic audio, and it made for a really immersive reading experience. Once I started listening to it I was able to connect with the characters a little better- I heard the actors’ voices as I read on my own, and I picked up more on the humor and character interactions from listening to parts of it.
I didn’t listen to or read anything else until I finished The Final Empire, but once I had that done I moved onto Fables vol. 18: Cubs in Toyland. I really enjoyed reading this volume. It did a better job at sticking to one story line than the previous volume did. This was a very emotional and eerie installment. I can’t recommend this graphic novel series highly enough. It got little ‘meh’ for a few volumes, but I really love the series overall.
This morning I started The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw. I have very high expectations for it as the kickoff of my fall/dark/witchy/spooky/Halloweeny TBR. Afterwards, I plan on reading Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman.
I also decided that I should go ahead and start the next Mistborn book, The Well of Ascension, and just take my time with it while reading some other things. I know if I put it aside completely I am likely not to come back to it.
I also picked up Infidelity, a Memoir by Ann Pearlman from the library. This sounded interesting, but I have a feeling it will be something I thumb through, not read cover to cover. We’ll see what happens.
What have you been reading? What will you be reading?
