It's Monday! What Are You Reading? & #Ayearathon readathon!

Having only read 6 books last month, I figure I really need to pick up my speed. So in addition to doing this meme, hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey, I will be joining the week-long readathon hosted by #Ayearathon, the theme of which is catching up/finishing series. So for that theme, these are the books I'm planning on tackling this week (we'll see how I go). This also helps with my autumn TBR list so I'm tackling multiple birds with one stone! :)

Finish/Catch Up On A Series

Prodigy & Champion by Marie Lu
I read Legend, book one of the Legend series, ages ago. I loved it and was really keen on continuing on with the series but just never got around to it. So I figured this is the perfect time to finish this series.

Scarlet & Cress by Marissa Meyer
I read Cinder, loved it, but was always slightly disappointed that there was no concrete resolution at the end since this is book one of a series. I haven't yet read Scarlet or Cress so I'll be interested to see how this series unfolds. I'm not sure if, after Cress, I'll be able to wait a full year for Winter to come out though!

With a full time job, I think four books will be plenty to keep me busy this week. However, should circumstances change and I actually manage to get through these four books, I'll post a mid-week update and tell you guys some of the other books that I'll be reading. We'll see how I go. 

Wishing everyone good luck on reading this week! :)


  1. Nice! Couldn't get into the Cinder series myself, hope you enjoy all your reads this week!

  2. I usually wait until the entire series is published to read a series. Often, however, I just read book one!

    Here's my It's Monday!

  3. I've got both of the series that these books belong to on my TBR list. I hope you're enjoying them :)
