It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a post to share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It is hosted by Kathryn at Bookdate.

Hello everyone, long time! This time, I’m making no promises about being on here regularly because it seems to backfire and I can’t post for two weeks. 
So, what’s been going on with me?? 

  • I’m finally getting over a cold I had for three weeks!! I feel so much better not having to take Nyquil every night to sleep therefore allowing me to be more awake in the morning (and possibly able to write more posts!) 
  • School has started and it is BRUTAL! 12 readings in one week for one class *sigh*
  • I’m also applying to career jobs…. think I might take a break though because this semester is going to kill me as is. 
  • I took a break on Saturday and went on a trip with my fiance! It was fun and awesome; I’m so happy we were able to get away for even just the day. 

Of course, with all of the above, it means I haven’t had much time for reading. When I could read I was usually so tired or out of it I watched The Office (almost done!).

Here is what I read last week: 

The Queen's Army (The Lunar Chronicles, #1.5)Zero Repeat Forever (The Nahx Invasions #1)Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles, #2)
…this is nothing for me, but I think it shows just how busy and out of it I’ve been, especially considering what I was able to read just yesterday.

Yesterday:

Grave Peril (The Dresden Files, #3)More of Me

Grave Peril I was 33% into from Saturday and the writing is just so easy to read I blew through the book. More of Me…. review to come, I’ll leave it at that and The Scarlet Rose #1 is a comic, so really not that long. More of Me and The Scarlet Rose are books I received through Netgalley, so those reviews will be coming soon 🙂 I’m happy to say my feedback ratio is now at 81% so I’m feeling pretty good ^_^

This Week’s TBR:

What even do I put down…. who knows what I’ll get to…. 

Angels Burning 

Angels Burning is a book I need to read for school, so I should get started on that soon… I am looking forward to reading it, but knowing I’m reading it for a class just makes me not want to read it anymore. 

Cress (The Lunar Chronicles, #3)

 

If I get time to read today, I’ll definitely be starting Cress!! Over 500 pages, it is one of the largest books I’ve read in months (probably). I am excited to finally be moving on in the series and making progress on my challenge, which I will bring up later. 

The Storied Life of A.J. FikryWatchmen 

 

Both of these are books for class I need to have read by the 27th. I gotta fit them in somehow…. even if I don’t really want to read them. 

 

And here are a few I’ll read if I’m lucky: 

Summer Knight (The Dresden Files, #4)Duels and DeceptionBehind the Song

There is no way in hell I’m getting through all these books… but if I get through Cress, Angels Burning, Watchmen, and Duels & Deception I will be happy. 

Finish Those Series Challenge Update!

It has been about a month since my last update, so I thought I would just tag it on to this post. Here is my original post about this challenge. 

This month towards my challenge I have read: 

Timeless (Parasol Protectorate, #5)The Wrath and the Dawn (The Wrath and the Dawn, #1)The Rose & the Dagger (The Wrath & the Dawn, #2)

Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles, #2)

which is fabulous and not even counting all the novellas included!!

Total books read so far: 20/46

I wrote in my original post, that if I finished all the books on the list up to TMI I’d be happy (about half the books, but most all series except two)! All I have left is the rest of The Lunar Chronicles to fulfill this midway goal!! 

Here is what I hope to finish this month:

Cress (The Lunar Chronicles, #3)Fairest (The Lunar Chronicles, #3.5)Winter (The Lunar Chronicles, #4)Stars Above (The Lunar Chronicles, #4.5)

City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments, #1)City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments, #2)

Will I be able to read this all??? Who knows!! Probably not, but I’m going to try anyhow! I’ve got 26 books to go and only 4 months!!


 

Any plans for this week? What are you reading?
