It's Monday! What are you reading? (#3)

It's Monday! is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey

I have been really bad this month. Work and the fact that I'm still on my rural rotation means I haven't had as much time to myself as I normally would. I finally cracked it over the weekend and forced myself to become a hermit and read 2 books (thus, finishing the Legend series), which are the first 2 books I have read this whole month. I really need to pick up my speed!

Gameboard of the Gods (Age of X #1) by Richelle Mead

In a futuristic world nearly destroyed by religious extremists, Justin March lives in exile after failing in his job as an investigator of religious groups and supernatural claims. But Justin is given a second chance when Mae Koskinen comes to bring him back to the Republic of United North America (RUNA). Raised in an aristocratic caste, Mae is now a member of the military's most elite and terrifying tier, a soldier with enhanced reflexes and skills. 
When Justin and Mae are assigned to work together to solve a string of ritualistic murders, they soon realize that their discoveries have exposed them to terrible danger. As their investigation races forward, unknown enemies and powers greater than they can imagine are gathering in the shadows, ready to reclaim the world in which humans are merely game pieces on their board.
It has been awhile since I read Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy series (which I have yet to complete) but I'm really intrigued by this book. What makes this even more exciting is that its sequel, The Immortal Crown, is set to be released at the end of this month (May 28th to be exact). I managed to get my hands on a netgalley copy of it so I'll be sure to jump on that book as soon as I'm done with this one!


  1. It has been crazy for me this month, too. Good for you in sequestering yourself and getting some work done!

    Here's my It's Monday!

    1. Thanks Deb Nance! Sometimes we just need to be social hermits and catch up on our reading! :D

  2. Gameboard of the Gods is still on my TBR mountain. Other books I want to read more keep moving it down the stack. Check out my week here. Happy reading!

    1. That happens to some books in my TBR pile as well. One day, we'll get there :)
