It's Monday, what are you reading?

It's Monday: What are you reading? is a weekly meme from Book Journey.

I recently finished The Book of Blood and Shadow by Robin Wasserman. This was a really cool book, especially if you're into conspiracies, history, and/or mysteries. It has a definite Da Vinci Code feel to it. For more info, see my full review.

I'm reading The Peculiars by Maureen Doyle McQuerry. It's a mix of Steampunk and old fairy tale creatures. It's interesting, but it's not holding my attention the way I'd like. We'll see how it finishes...

What I'm reading next? Who knows. My to-read pile is out of control. I may pick up my ARC of Born Wicked, or grab one of my newly purchased books, like Rot and Ruin or The Name of the Star. The best event in Indianapolis, the Half Priced Books Clearance sale, went on this weekend, and I am STOCKED UP! New books make me happy, and this haul has made me downright giddy :)

This is what I'm reading, but make sure to check out what our teens are reading, too! You'll find a ton of reviews by our library's teens and a great variety of books, including a number of Eliot Rosewater nominees!

Happy Reading!


  1. I'd highly highly recommend Rot and Ruin! It was quite literally the only book series I lunged at while at ALA this week (the third book in the series, Flesh and Bone). I hope you love it!

    Have a fabulous reading week and if you get a chance stop by There's A Book to see what I'm up to as well. :)

  2. Congrats on getting all those new books! I'm really interested in reading The Book of Blood and Shadow.
    Have a great week!

  3. I've wanted to read Blood and Shadows since last years NCTE- I am glad that it is good. Now it is definitely on my TBR.

    I understand the spontaneous reading- sometimes it is just hard to plan :)

    Happy reading this week! :)
