It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? #3

"It's Monday! What Are You Reading?" is a weekly event, hosted by Book Journey that spotlights what we're currently reading, recently finished and plan to read next.

Read Last Week

I loved both of the books I read last week. Gone by Michael Grant was a stunning, violent ride. I can't wait to read the sequel! Despite how much I loved the book, it was a much slower read than I was anticipating. It was very long, with small font but even when I read for nearly 8 hours straight, I didn't make much headway. Magic Slays by Ilona Andrews was a wonderful addition to the series. Andrews never disappoints so this was a huge pleasure to read. If you can find a book with wittier and more clever dialogue, I'll name you book blog master.

Currently Reading

I've only just started Divergent by Veronica Roth and The Demon King by Cinda Williams Chima. I think I'm stuck in the high expectations rut for Divergent because I read the first few chapters and I'm pretty sure that I'm pouting. The Demon King is taking over my life though, really loving it.

To Read Soon

I've got an ARC of The Map of Time by Félix J. Palma that needs reading before the end of this month. The book is massive but sounds reallly good. I'm also planning to read Outside In by Maria V. Snyder. I fell madly in love with the first book and I just got the second in the series and it's killing me to wait.

Soooo... what are you reading? Share your link or whatever in the comments!


  1. The Map of Time looks interesting. Love the cover

  2. Oh I still have to get Divergent.... hope you love it!

  3. Enjoy your books. Summer school begins for me so my reading for fun will take second place to reading for homework. So my reading for fun will have to take second place to reading for school. Come see what I finished in my last week of vacation.

  4. I've been debating whether to read the 'Gone' books...

  5. @Heather
    It sounds really interesting too. "H.G. Wells is called upon to investigage purported incidents of time travel and to save lives and literary classics, including Dracula and The Time Machine, from being wiped from existence." I love the idea of classics needing saving.

    @Sheila (Bookjourney)
    I'm really hoping to love it too! I'm having trouble getting into it though.

  6. @pussreboots
    Ouch! I'm on summer break, thankfully. I hope some of th school reading will at least be interesting!

    @Bookish Brunette
    Do it. I saw a few people describe it as 'Lord of the Flies meets X-Men' so if you have any interest in something like that, they're definitely your kind of books.

  7. So many books I'm looking forward to, myself. I also have The Map of Time to read and I'm rather excited about it as I love H.G. Wells. And I have Inside Out just waiting to be read - so much to read!

  8. @kaye (paper reader)
    I hope Map of Time ends up being good. It sounds amazing and I'm totally in love with the cover, but I've yet to read anything by a foreign author that's been translated that I actually enjoyed.
    Hope you enjoy Inside Out!!

  9. I've read "The Map of Time" by Felix J. Palma, and absolutely LOVED IT! I thought it was a fantastic book although quite hefty in size. If you don't let the size of the book intimidate you, and don't tire of extremely descriptive passages, this book is actually quite a treasure to behold! :D Hope you enjoy reading it, and thank you for this lovely post! :D
