Week in Review

It's Monday reading meme It's Monday childrens books meme

It's Monday! What are you reading? I haven't been participating in this weekly meme on a regular basis lately, but I'm hoping to get back into it more. For the past few days, I've been focused on my to-do list for Bloggiesta. I got a lot accomplished so I'm feeling good about that! I have a couple reviews planned for this week and then next week is Banned Books Week! So I'm already preparing for that.

Reviews and Blog Posts
Book Review: Every Fifteen Minutes by Lisa Scottoline
Book Club Picks: Science Fiction
Book Review: Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
So far in September, I've read two books: Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood by Marjane Satrapi and Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. Two very different books, but I enjoyed them both. I also started reading I Am Pilgrim by Terry Hayes at the beginning of the month but had to put it aside for a bit. It's good, but I just haven't been in the mood for a heavy thriller. Now I'm reading Allegiant by Veronica Roth so I can go to the movie when it comes out!

C just finished reading the Virals series by Kathy Reich. Now he's reading Mark of the Thief by Jennifer A. Nielsen. M is reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling. She's almost done so she'll be moving on to the second book soon.

  1. Isn't Persepolis incredible? I'm in the middle of it - so powerful, seeing all that through the eyes of a child.

    And did you love Ready Player One? They're making a movie of it - can't wait!

    Enjoy your books this week!


    Book By Book

    1. Persepolis is so unique! Very interesting.

      I did love Ready Player One. Can't wait to see that movie! I was hoping to share the book with my son, but there's a bit too much adult content in it.

  2. Going to check out your review of EVERY FIFTEEN MINUTES.

    Have a great week.

    My It's Monday, What Are You Reading

  3. I'm reading I Am Pilgrim and Sapiens

    1. I hope you're enjoying those. I need to get back to I Am Pilgrim but it will probably be in October. I have a few more less-complex books to read before I dive back into it.

  4. Persepolis is such a great example of the versatility of the graphic novel genre - a perfect book to share with people who think graphic novels aren't "real" books.


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts!
