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)
