It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is now brought to you by Sheila from One Person’s Journey Through A World of Books!

I started off the week with The Red Necklace by Sally Gardner.   I’ve been intrigued by books surrounding the French Revolution.  But, the last one was just ok.   Apparently what I needed was one of more fictional basis and young adult.   It was a fast read and I thought it was great. 

I read The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan next.  It’s the 4th book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series.  While it was still a good book, I felt like it was lacking something.  Not my favorite of the series.

I finished the week with Inkdeath by Cornelia Funke.  I was excited for this book because I really loved Inkspell.  I still loved the characters and story development in this one.  My problem was it just seemed too long.  I think there was too much tedious details and dialog.

I’m going to start Fire by Kristin Cashore tonight.  I’m so excited for this book because I loved Graceling!  I’m expecting two books from Around the World Tours this week, so I’ll have to read those instead of the other two I had planned (that’s not a bad thing though).   So that will be Angel Star by Jennifer Murgia and Hearts at Stake by Alyxandra Harvery.

  1. Hi!
    Great list of books. I have read the first 2 books of Percy Jackson and the Olympians. I have Inkspell, just haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. Have a great day!

    Just Books

  2. I have Inkspell on my TBR list, but it’s sooo long – don’t know when I’ll actually get to it. I’ve heard great things about it, though, so I’m determined to read it one of these days. Hope you enjoy all your reading this week!

  3. I still need to read Fire & Graceling! I really don’t know what I’m waiting for. Happy reading 🙂

  4. I need to get moving on the Percy Jackson series. I have only read the first one. I am not familiar with The Red Necklace – I will have to check that one out.

    Have a super week! 🙂

  5. I loved the Red Necklace. I’m glad you liked it too. I hope you enjoy Fire and your other books.
