It's Monday! What Are You Reading? - September 8th, 2014





This weekly meme is sponsored by Book Journey, and we talk about things we read last week, and our plans for what we'll read this coming week. 


Last week:

Well, first of all, I started my 3rd annual September is for Sequels Challenge since it is now September.   Along with that was the September is for Sequels Giveaway Hop that I am co-hosting with I Am a Reader. Today is the last day to enter, so be sure to click on the link to the Hop and enter if you haven't yet.  I posted 3 reviews last week:
 The last one of those is my first entry into my Sequels Challenge.  With my sequels challenge it is kind of putting a bit of a dent into my reading plans for ARCs and E-galleys.  But I'll explain more when I get to the plans for this week.

Currently reading:

I am currently reading Unravel Me (Shatter Me #2) by Tahereh Mafi for my September is for Sequels Challenge.  It's 400 pages, so is taking me a day or two to get through it.  

This week:

As I mentioned, I'm trying to get my sequels done, plus I'm participating in Tressa at Wishful Endings's Tackle Your TBR Read-a-thon this week and next.   So that is keeping me from reading some of my e-galleys/ARCs.  I really want to read my ARC of Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld this week, but I may wait till I'm done with the challenge because it is like 600 pages long!  So here are my planned reads, once I finish Unravel Me:
Of course, how many I get through depends on how quickly I finish them, as they are all between 300-400 pages, and I seem to have more and more to do now that school is back in.  Plus I have to take a Praxis test tomorrow night for my library job, Kansas won't just transfer my Missouri library/teaching license since I didn't have the library experience before I came here.  So I have to take the Praxis.  Which means I should really only be studying that tonight, and not doing any reading.  (Yeah right, like that's going to happen)

  1. Nice week, but unfortunately I don't know any of these titles.

    I hope they are good and you enjoy them.

    Good old Praxis tests. :) Best of luck.

    Giveaway going on at my blog until Thursday for Accidents of Marriage if anyone wants to stop by.

    1. Thanks for visiting, and I think I'll probably do okay on the test. It's mostly kind of common sense to me, other than knowing lots of lawsuit names and such.

  2. I liked unravel me, it was a long read, but worth it I thought:)

    Here is my Monday!

  4. Hey, where is your Unmade review? *shakes fist*

    I'm reading Tear You Apart, I like the story a lot but there isn't a lot going on so I've been putting it down a lot. Blah. Good luck with your sequels!

    1. Looks like I forgot to link to that! I'd better fix that, huh!! I did read it and liked it a lot! Hmm, now you're worrying me about Tear You Apart. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. I'm much better at starting series than ending them. Since I have a huge stack of review books, those are what I need to concentrate on reading. Happy reading!

    1. It happens so much when you get ARCs or e-galleys, and then don't always get the 2nd or last one as an ARC or e-galley. Thanks for stopping by!

  6. September Is for Sequels sounds like such a cool idea. I always think it is smart to space out books in a series but then, of course, I can't remember the earlier books! Sigh....

  7. I need a sequels challenge like that. There are so many great series, it's hard to keep current with all of them.
