Monday Maunder: In The Books

Hello Monday!

This week has been a pretty decent reading week.  For that reason, I thought I would just share my weekly books.  I wanted to share some pictures with you, but that will have to wait until a future week when I am actually done with them!

I finished three books this week.  The first was Ivy & Bean Break the Fossil Record, the third in the series.  I read this one with my daughter.  I have no intention of reviewing this book, but I will say that my daughter adores this series.  Myself, I honestly could take it or leave it.  As long as she wants to read them together, I'm going to continue to read them!

The second book was Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare, the final book in the Infernal Devices trilogy.  I will be writing a review on this one, but as a sneak peek, I adored this one!  I will save the details for the full review though!

The final book was Embroideries by Marjane Satrapi.  I will not be writing a review on this book either.  I was rather annoyed on so many levels that I simply do not want to devote any more of my time to it.  I think I read it with a look of disgust on my face through most of the story.

Today, you will find me in the middle of Insurgent by Veronica Roth.  I decided to pick this one up sooner rather than later thanks to a good friend pushing me to do so.  It is going quickly, so I anticipate moving on to Allegiant and finishing up that series this week.  I may even be able to dive into Chew, Volume 1 by John Layman and Enchanted Glass by Diana Wynne Jones.  Wish me luck on another great week of reading!

What's happening in the books for you this week?  


  1. Guess what I'm reading? ;) DWJ! I do need to read Bud, Not Buddy for the chapter book project and I got it on audio so I think I'll squeeze that in this week while I do some housework. Sounds like you have lots of good reading ahead too. :)

    1. Kristen M. ... I am not surprised!!! I'm hoping to get in a couple of those myself this month! I forgot to mention that I'm also listening to Ready Player One on audio. I might actually finish this one before it expires again! *fingers crossed*

  2. This week I'm reading The Slap! Everyone was reading it approximately six years ago, and I am just now catching up. :p It's different than what I expected!

    1. Jenny @ Reading the End ... I have never heard of that one, so I had to go look it up. It looks really interesting. I will be watching your site for a review when you're done with it!
