Book Date Monday 2018 #2

its-monday-what-are-you-reading

I haven’t been doing much reading these past few days because I’ve been addicted to this game on my phone and I’ve been focusing on that more than my reading.

Currently Reading:

magnus chase

I’m currently participating in a readathon called Series Crackdown, if you want to learn more about it, please check out my post linked here. The series I’m going to try to finish within this month is the Magnus Chase trilogy.

Upcoming Reads:

I doubt that I’ll get to this by the end of the book, but I really want to try to get to them.

So that’s it for me this week. I haven’t really been doing much reading and my vacation at the end of the month is not going to help. I already figured out that my reading with be light this month though.

Book Date Monday 2018 #1

its-monday-what-are-you-reading

My first Book Date Monday: What are you reading? for the year 2018! It’s been awhile since I posted one. So as usually this Book Date Monday is hosted by
Kathryn @ Book Date, so if you want to participate, make sure you check her blog out and tag her.

Last Week I Finished:

I actually enjoyed both these books and can’t wait to read the next book in the Diabolic Trilogy. I’ll be posting a review for Meet Cute so stay tuned for that one.

Currently Reading:

I’m currently in the middle of The Amateurs by Sara Shepard, but it’s not grabbing me as much as I wanted it too. I really want to start the re-read on Ready Player One by Earnest Cline and I think that’s hindering me from enjoying the former. I’m going to start Ready Player One this week and hopefully get it out of my system so that I can finish Shepard’s novel.

Upcoming Reads:

I’m really yearning for more fantasy or science fiction novels this past few months and I’m not complaining because I really need to get some of my Sci-fi and Fantasy novels read. I’m not really sure what I will be picking up with my current mood, but these two books are in my TBR for the month. So we’ll see.

Book Date #12

its-monday-what-are-you-reading

Created by Book Date

It’s been awhile since I did a Book Date Monday, only because I haven’t been reading much. This month I’m slowly getting a bit better and I actually have something to put on this week’s Book Date Monday.

Last Week I Finished:

I was able to finish these two books last week and I really surprised myself. Anyways, both books are great reads and I totally recommend both books. Warcross is getting a lot of buzz in the Book Community because of the author, but it’s actually one hype that I’m glad I got on.

Currently Reading:

death by tiara

I found myself without a book today, so I had to grab something from Overdrive that I can read quick. Since Laura Levine’s Jaine Austen is my go-to series, I decided to check if Overdrive had it and just my luck, they do!

Upcoming Reads:

I’m really in a mystery mood so I might pick up either one of these books. I don’t know if I’m leaning more to thriller or detective.

***

So that’s it for my Book Date Monday this week, hopefully, I’ll do better than last time keeping track of my reading.

Book Date #11

its-monday-what-are-you-reading

Last week was a busy week for me and I wasn’t able to do a lot of reading. I really want to remedy that, that’s why I’m participating in Tome Topple for this week. Here is my TBR for that readathon.

Last Week I Finished:

Death on the Nile

I haven’t read an Agatha Christie book in awhile and I think it was time for me to pick-up one that I know I will enjoy. Egypt has always fascinated me in its culture and history, so of course I wanted to pick this up. As always I love the story and the ending, amazing!

Currently Reading:

Gemina

I actually haven’t started this book yet, but I will be today for the Tome Topple Readathon. I also read the first book in the series during another Tome Topple Readathon, so I thought it was fitting to choose this book as well.

Upcoming Read:

I will most likely read one about 500+ page books, since I will be in the middle of the readathon by the time I finish Gemina. These are two books that I own that 500+. So maybe It will be one of these two.

***

So that’s it for me this week and I’m excited to get into my books this week. I always love joining the Tome Topple Readathon.

Book Date #10

its-monday-what-are-you-reading

Last Week I Finished:

court of thorns and roses

I have finally started and finished this book! I’m super proud of myself since everyone, and their mother, has already read and finished the WHOLE series. Anyways, I’m just glad that I finally got around to picking it up. I actually enjoyed it, I wasn’t as blown away as everyone, but I did enjoy it a lot more than Throne of Glass. I definitely enjoyed Feyre more than Celaena.

Currently Read:

woman-in-cabin-10

After reading high fantasy, I had a hankering for a good mystery. Since I enjoyed In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware last year, I thought it was fitting for me to grab her latest book. I’m really not that far into the story, so I have no thoughts on it yet.

Upcoming Read:

power play

I’ve been mood reading lately, so I haven’t really decided what I want to read after The Woman in Cabin 10. If I have enough time this month I might pick up Power Play. If I get into August then I will probably pick-up a different book. I’m also thinking about entering Tome Topple next month, but I’ll have to see.

***

So that’s for this week, I know I’ve been slacking on my post lately, but I will try to be more pro-active in August. Summer has been such a lazy type of month!

 

Book Date #9

its-monday-what-are-you-reading

It’s been awhile since I participated in Book Date Monday, so I should definitely remedy that!

Last Week I Finished:

I actually read the graphic novel of these two books and I really enjoyed them. I like getting into the story again and makes me want to re-read the series, but technically, I just recently finished reading the whole thing last year. So maybe next year, for now I’m content with the graphic novels. Hopefully, they’ll come out with A Mark of Athena soon.

Currently Reading:

court of thorns and roses

Yes, I’m finally getting into this series. I really hope I will enjoy it because I bought the whole trilogy. So if I don’t boo on me. However, I did here a lot of good things about these books, so I want to get into the band wagon also.

Upcoming Read:

six of crows

I’m being really ambitious in reading these two hefty books, but I really do want to get to them this year and I think doing it this summer is the way to go. So Keeping my fingers crossed!

Book Date #8

its-monday-what-are-you-reading

I can’t believe that Monday crept up so fast and I totally forgot to post this Book Date Monday, oh well, better late than never!

Last Week I Finished:

the-vault-of-dreamers

I’m not entirely sure how I feel about this book yet, but I did give it a 3 out 5. It’s a unique story and I enjoyed reading it. I just had a problem with the ending. ARGH! That ending! I’m not really sure if I will be continuing this series though.

Currently Reading:

the fourth monkey

This book was given to me for an honest review and therefore I will most likely write a review for it. That being said, I really enjoyed the book. It was an exciting read with a twist in the end.

Upcoming Read:

I really want to start a new series this week, but I’m debating on which one. I’m leaning more on A Court of Thorns and Roses, but we’ll see.
