It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 2/9

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? --From Picture Books to YA is a weekly meme started by Jen at Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee at Unleashing Readers. This is a chance for bloggers to recap their week of reading and share their plans for the next reading adventures they will take. Visit the host blogs for a list of great blogs participating in this meme and a whole bunch of titles to add to your to-read lists.

Books I Finished This Week:

I finished listening to Death Cloud (Young Sherlock Holmes #1) by Andrew Lane. This was a fun mystery.  I will definitely look for the other Young Sherlock Holmes books after reading this one. What a nice, light read!

That is all. The problem with reading multiple books is that you make progress in all of them but don't finish very quickly. 

Books I am Currently Reading:

I am almost finished with The Magicians by Lev Grossman. I am also reading Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor and Shadow Scale by Rachel Hartman.  Both are really amazing story worlds that I am glad to visit again. 

What's Next?

I have a pile of books from the library and will probably have to return some before getting to them. Too many ambitious hold requests. I also have a few titles from NetGalley that I want to get to soon. I would like to improve my percentages there for giving title feedback. I am really looking forward to Read Between the Lines by Jo Knowles.  

I am very much suffering from the too many books, too little time syndrome. I really want to be able to stop time whenever I want so that I could have some guilt-free reading time. 

What are you reading this week? I would love to hear from you in the comments! Have a great reading week. 


  1. Ah, the too many books, too little time syndrome. I am right there with you.
    How is Magicians? My father loved the book!

    Happy reading this week! :)

  2. I am really looking forward to Read Between the Lines. I haven't gotten to it yet, but Jo Knowles is such a rock star, that I know it will be good. Like you and Kellee, I need to figure out some magical way to carve out more time!

  3. I hate it when I have all those books out from the library and no time to read them all. Sigh... I'm green with envy that you have Rachel Hartman's new book. I am number 28 in line for it, and it hasn't even been purchased yet!

  4. I have all of Laini Taylor's novels and I really am looking forward to knowing her fantasy world. I was pretty taken with Leigh Bardugo's Shadow and Bone trilogy.
