It's Monday 10/26! What Are You Reading?

(What are you reading Mondays was started by J. Kaye's Book Blog.)

Lots of good books last week!
  • I finished The Circle of Gold by Guillaume Prevost, last book in the middle-grade/teen The Book of Time trilogy - very exciting conclusion!
  • I'm still listening to Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick - I should finish it this week.
  • Jamie (15) finished Leviathan, a brand-new, unique novel by Scott Westerfeld, author of The Uglies series. It's a novel set at the cusp of World War I, except the two sides are battling with Clankers, steam-driven iron machines, and fabricated animals, including the Leviathan, a whale airship. The novel is illustrated with detailed drawings. He says it was amazing!
  • Jamie started a book he's been saving so he could savor it: Brisingr by Christopher Paolini, the conclusion of the Eragon trilogy, one of his all-time favorite series.
  • Craig is reading Half Magic by Edward Eager, one of MY all-time favorite books! He already read it once this summer, but he's re-reading it for his Accelerated Reader program at school.
  • Ken, my husband, is still working his way through Inkspell by Cornelia Funke.
I'm finally feeling better after a lengthy illness, so I'll be posting some new reviews this week!

Check out Book By Book to see what grown-up books I'm reading.

I really want to read Leviathan and start the Cornelia Funke series (I can't remember which one comes first). Sounds like your family is enjoying some great books this week.

Leviathan -- I keep meaning to request that from the library -- I need to do that! :-)

I've got a Eragon and Eldest waiting to be read. Hope Jamie enjoys the conclusion as much as it sounds like he enjoyed the first two.
