Its Monday! What are you reading? From Picture Books to YA

Its Monday!  What are you reading?  From Picture Books to YA is a weekly feature hosted by Jen and Kellee of Teach Mentor Texts and inspired by Its Monday!  What are you reading by Sheila at Book Journeys.

Last week, I started listening to the audiobook of The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.  It's kind of confusing, and I can't go back to reread.  It's also striking me as really sad, so I'm having a hard time with it.

I got a bunch of books from the library:  Blackout by John Rocco, Artemis Fowl: The Arctic Incident by Eoin Colfer; Incarnate by Jodi Meadows (reading right now---LOVE IT!) and the audio of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

  1. I am listening to the audiobook for The Night Circus as well! I agree that it is a bit confusing. It really helps me to have a hard copy of the book with me, so I can refer to it when I miss part of the audiobook.

    1. I wish I had checked out a paper copy instead of the audio. I thought I could listen during my commute (which usually works in my favor). Its making me really sad, too, I don't like Celia's relationship with her father (in the beginning---I haven't gotten that far)

  3. I did not love The Night Circus, but I did love having Jim Dale in the car with me for a few weeks! There were some really lovely and interesting bits, but it wasn't a favorite for me. I recently read Broken Harbor by Tana French and loved it. I definitely recommend her Dublin Murder Squad series.

    1. I could listen to Jim Dale read the phone book. Its really funny b/c I just finished listening to Harry Potter & the Half Blood Prince (which he also narrates)...and some of the character voices are the same! I got a good giggle out of it!

  4. Good to know. I want to read Night Circus, but I'll get a paper version of the book. I love Artemis Fowl.

    1. Its interesting, but it makes me sad. I don't know if its interesting enough for me to keep going (which also makes me sad)

  6. I just finished reading Blackout with my 3yo at bedtime. So much to talk about in those pictures. And I can't wait to hear what you have to say about The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore. I thought it was amazing. Perhaps one of my favorite picture books of all time. Reminded me a little of the movie Up.

  7. I can't do audiobooks! No attention span!

    Right now I'm reading Next of Kin by Sharon Sala-like it so far!

  8. Hi Amanda, I have The Night Circus lying unloved in my bookshelves, I hope to read it sometime soon. Sad to hear that you didn't quite resonate with it. :) Glad to see an Artemis Fowl title here - I enjoyed the series a few years back, I have yet to hear the last two ones. :) Enjoy the rest of your week!
