Between Monday, August 10 and now, I’ve completed the following:

Origin

  • Origin by Jessica Khoury – 2.5 or 3 stars

After reading 5 books last week for Booktube-A-Thon, I decided to take it easy this week so that’s why I ended up only finishing one book. I would have liked to finish at least one more but that’s okay! This coming week and the next will be busy ones for me so I hope I’m able to get a good amount of reading done!

I started but didn’t finish:

Crown of Midnight

I started this one really late on Sunday night so I’m not that far into the book yet; I believe I’m on page 45 or so. I’m going to be continuing it today. I’m really looking forward to seeing what happens next in the series!

What I want to read next:

It's Monday 8

These two books are ones that I really want to get to before the end of the month. I received Sacrificed for review and the synopsis sounds super intriguing. I’m looking forward to reading it! As for Heir of Fire, I plan on reading it sometime after finishing Crown of Midnight. I need to be caught up with the series by the time the fourth book comes out on September 1st!

It's Monday What Are You Reading

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Book Journey where you share what you read in the past week, what you hope to read this week, and anything else in between! Since I missed last week, this post will discuss what I read in the last two weeks.


Between Monday, July 27th and Monday, August 3rd I completed the following books:

Last 3 reads (35)

  • Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas – 4/5 stars
  • The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton – 3/5 stars
  • The Iron Trial by Holly Black & Cassandra Clare – 4/5 stars

I usually only read 2 books a week so I was super glad I was able to finish 3! Throne of Glass was a reread for me and I enjoyed it as much as I did the first time around. I’m looking forward to reading books 2 and 3 hopefully this month before book 4 comes out in September! The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender was definitely very strange. I’m not quite sure how I felt about the book so that’s why I gave it a rating that’s somewhere in the middle. The Iron Trial was surprisingly really good! I’d been hearing not-so-great things about it – mostly people saying it was a Harry Potter copy cat. While there were some similarities, I don’t think the two novels have that much in common. I really enjoyed the plot and the characters are ones I think I can come to love. I’m looking forward to the sequel’s release in September!

Between Monday, August 3rd and now, I’ve completed the following books:

BTAT Wrap Up

This past week was Booktube-A-Thon and I ended up reading a lot of books! I’m so proud of myself for reading as much as I did. For more on the books I read check out my read-a-thon wrap up here and my daily updates here.

What I want to read next:

I have numerous books checked out from the library plus I really want to read Crown of Midnight and Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas before Queen of Shadows is released on September 1st. I also have a book for review that I need to get to soon. That being said, I’m not quite sure what I’ll be reading next!

It's Monday What Are You Reading

Between Monday, July 20th and now, I’ve completed the following books:

It's Monday 5

Even though I was reading other books in addition to these graphic novels, these two were the only ones I was able to finish. I really hope to do better this week since I’m participating in the #TBRTakedown read-a-thon!

I didn’t quite finish:

It's Monday 6

I came really close to finishing my reread of Throne of Glass, but didn’t quite make it. I’m currently on page 325 out of 404 so only 79 more pages to go! As for Blue Smoke, I might be putting it on hold for now and coming back to it at a later time. I haven’t picked it up since Wednesday and there are other books I would like to focus on first.

What I want to read next:

It's Monday 7

These books are on my TBR for the #TBRTakedown read-a-thon. Since I most likely won’t be able to finish them all by the time the read-a-thon ends (which is Friday), I hope to finish at least 2 and get started on a third.

It's Monday 3

Even though I was sick this week, I still managed to complete two books. Yay for me! Harry Potter was a reread and it was just as great as the first time I read it.

I started but didn’t finish:

It's Monday 4

Blue Smoke is one of my mom’s favorite books so I decided to start it this week. My mom decided that she wanted to have a little readalong with me and reread the book, which is fun! However, she reads slower than I do and we want to discuss as we go, so I started reading Throne of Glass while I waited for her to catch up to me. Throne of Glass is actually a reread for me – I want to continue on with the series, but I can’t remember anything from the first book!

What I want to read next:

Crown of Midnight

After I finish the books I’m currently reading, I’m not sure what I’ll read next. I might read Crown of Midnight (the second book in the Throne of Glass series) or I might read one of the books I have out from the library. I’ll have to see what I’m in the mood for!

Between Monday, June 6th and now, I’ve completed the following:

The Martian

I’m so disappointed that I was only able to finish one book this week. I usually get through at least two a week so it was quite a let down that I could only finish one. While reading The Martian, I was also reading (well, rereading) another book – one that I couldn’t finish before the week was up. For more on that book, see below!

I didn’t quite finish:

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

I started reading this book (for the third time) on July 4th and I continued reading it this past week. Since I have only been reading it here and there, I’m only on page 280. I plan on finishing it either tonight or tomorrow so I can move on to other books!

What I want to read next:

It's Monday 2

I bought Every Last Word the other day and it’s a book I’ve been wanting to read for a little while now, so I’m pretty sure I’ll read it after I finish Harry Potter. After that, I would like to get to And the Mountains Echoed because it’s due back to the library next week. As for the remaining two books, I just got them from the library today so I may or may not be reading them this week.

Between Monday, June 29th and now, I’ve completed the following books:

It's Monday

As you can see, I only managed to read 2 books this week. I usually read 3 books so I’m a bit disappointed. Hopefully this coming week, I’ll read more!

I started but didn’t finish:

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

I decided to pick this book up earlier in the week when I was having trouble getting into A Court of Thorns and Roses. I only read around 80 pages though because I started enjoying ACOTAR and couldn’t put it down! I may or may not finish reading this book this week. Since I’ve read it twice before, I’m not in a big hurry. I might just read a chapter or two here and there.

What I want to read next:

question mark

I have absolutely no clue what I want to read next. I have some books checked out from the library and some books that I own sitting on my shelf but I don’t know what I’m going to read! Any recommendations would be highly appreciated.

Between Monday, May 4th and now, I’ve completed the following books:

Monday 1

I was extremely busy this past week which unfortunately meant I didn’t have much time for reading. It took me the whole week to finish The House of Hades, but less than a day to finish Liars, Inc.! Since I’m participating in the Bout of Books read-a-thon this week, I hope to read even more!

Books I Want to Read Soon:

Monday 2

Now, I know I’m not going to read all five of these books during the week. However, my goal is to finish at least two of them and maybe start a third. I’ll be starting with The Blood of Olympus because I can’t wait any longer – I have to see how the series ends. After that, I’m not quite sure which book I want to read. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
