It's Monday! What am I reading? - 1

What are you reading? is from the fabulous Sheila at Book Journey. This is my first week sharing my plans.

Last week I listened to:
 The Leftovers by Tom Perrotta
 Ashes, Ashes by Jo Treggiari

Last week I also drove a 20-hour road trip and listened to the book everyone's talking about, The Night Circus. This was a tough audio book for me. It was hard to give the story the focus it needed even when I wasn't driving. Review coming!

I'm currently listening to the latest Mary Russell from Laurie R. King, The Pirate King. This is interspersed with The Lies of Loche Lamora by Scott Lynch. Lies is another book that's a hard listen for me because of all its jumping around.

It will be mostly audio books for me this week since I have to drive the 20 hours back. On deck is The Scorch Trials by James Dashner, book two in the Maze Runner trilogy. My Maze Runner review is in the works. I liked it a lot but am having a hard time explaining why. I'm excited to read the second in the series.

If I have any time for paper reading, maybe when I stop for lunch, I brought with me How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe by Charles Yu. Looking forward to that one.

What are you reading?


  1. I've been wanting to read the Maze Runner books for a little while now. I'll keep an eye out for your review of the first book :)

  2. I really dug The Maze Runner, so I need to read The Scorch Trials. And I can't wait to read The Night Circus.

    Happy Reading!

  3. That's my problem with audio books, I need to be doing something with my hands and that diverts my attention to the words, lol



  4. You have an awesome line up (and a beautiful blog!) I so want to listen to The Leftovers too!

  5. Chrissie - I did like The Maze Runner. Hopefully I can get the review up soon.

    Megan - Looking forward to what you think on The Scorch Trials and Night Circus.

    Lori - So true. Mysteries and YA seem to work best for me in audio since they tend to have simple, linear plots. I've been trying to listen to too much complicated fantasy.

    Sheila - Thanks! The Leftovers is good. Hopefully you can find it through your library.

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Have a great week of reading.
