Musing Mondays – September

SEPTEMBER!

Do you remember the 21st night of September?
Love was changing the minds of pretenders
While chasing the clouds away…

Pardon me for singing.. I am just in the mood, this month of September. Where the cold season is awaiting. Anyway, welcome to the first edition of Musing Mondays for September.
Musing Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB from Should be Reading.

Musing Mondays (Oct. 3)

Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…

• Describe one of your reading habits.

• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).

• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!

• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.

• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!

Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

My Musing for today is about my monthly reading habit.
If last month, it was all about Angels and Demons, this month, I am going to read Steampunks, Sci-Fis and Suspense Thrillers. OOhhhh.. this is gonna be a thrilling and exciting month!

Musing Monday

Welcome to another edition of Musing Mondays! This weekly meme hosted by MizB from Should be Reading.

Musing Mondays (Oct. 3)

Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…

• Describe one of your reading habits.

• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).

• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!

• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.

• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!

• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

Hmmm. This week, my muse is actually more of a ramble or question: Do you remember the very first book that you have ever read or purchased? Think about it.

I don’t have to scan my brain to search for my earliest childhood memory because I clearly remember it, as bright as the day. The first ever book I have read was Cinderella by the Brothers Grimm.

Looking back, when I was in first grade, I remember going to our school library during vacant periods. Then I would immediately go to the Fairytales section and get the large Brothers Grimm edition and read all the magical stories.

But it was Cinderella’s story that captured my attention. Everyday, I imagined about Ella of the Cinders and her Prince Charming. I never get tired of her and her evil stepmothers and stepsisters, even until today. I guess that is the reason I have always preferred Fairytale retellings because of the giddy feeling or good vibes that it gives me.

How about you? Care to share the very first book you have ever read?

Here’s my musing this week: There’s this one book I have been desperate and been wanting to get my hands on. It’s the third book of the Divergent series – Allegiant – by Veronica Roth.

I learned that the book is expected to be released on November, and that’s three more months of waiting! Yay! I would really like to know what happens to Tris and Four and how would the factions survive… I am equally intrigued by the following teaser questions:

What if your whole world was a lie?
What if a single revelation—like a single choice—changed everything?
What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?

Anyway, this book trilogy is already being made into a movie and will soon be shown early next year. Okay, that’s more than 5 months to go.. Hmm.. So, I’d rather wait for the third book, at least until November! Yippee!!

How about you? What’s your musing this Monday?

My Musing for today is about my reading habit. As you all know, I have a habit of reading books with a theme for every month. Last month, July, is the second part or second half of the year, so I read Sequels or the second books of a trilogy..

This week, or should I say, this month of August is all about Angels and Demons! Yes, I have already arranged my shelves to ake sure that I am gonna read books that have angels and demons on them. I am all about Angels, their origins, their kinds, their love lives. Next, I’d love to know more about their counterparts, too. The Demons. The Black angels. The Evil monsters.

Here are my upcoming Books-To-Read this month:

Angelology by Danielle Trussoni
Angels and Demons by Dan Brown
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
Death Whispers by Tamara Rose Blodgett
Demon Girl by Penelope Fletcher
Demon Hunter and Baby by Anna Elliott
Fallen by Lauren Kate
Hades by Alexandra Adornetto
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick

This week, it would be again a combined meme, because I joined It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? Meme which would be the answer to my Monday Musing..

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.
This fantastic meme is now hosted by Sheila at One Person’s Journey Through a World of Books.

For this week-opener, I am reading the very controversial crime novel, The Cuckoo’s Calling..

:cuckoos

The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith, who turned out to be JK Rowling.

A brilliant debut mystery in a classic vein: Detective Cormoran Strike investigates a supermodel’s suicide. You may think you know detectives, but you’ve never met one quite like Strike.

You may think you know about the wealthy and famous, but you’ve never seen them under an investigation like this.

My thoughts on this.. later!

Recently finished the following books:

SavedPicture-201371215566.jpg    Water waves and bubbles in blue  heredragons

Kiss Me by Kristine Mason

Tremble by Addison Moore

Here, There Be Dragons by James A. Owen

I certainly got lots of books, both on my shelf and on Kindle. Today,

it’s the first of July, the start of the second half of the year!
Speaking of second half, this month, I am going to read Sequel books. Yes, books that are part of a series or trilogies, those Part 2 Books that I haven’t had the chance or time to read.

Today, I am reading Traitor, book 2 of the Bridger series by Megan Curd. Can;t wait to read about Ashlyn and Memaw once again!
And also for the next few days, I will continue with my Princess Diaries – oh, why does it have to have 10 books, Meg Cabot? I’m done with the first 3 books a year ago, only now I realized that I haven’t finished reading the rest, so on with the next three. (Mia Goes Fourth, Project Princess & Princess in Pink).

This week I am musing about: what I’m currently reading:

Since it’s the Wedding Season, I already piled my To-B-Reads with stories that have wedding themes. So far, I’ve finished, Married by Mistake by Abby Gaines and “Always the Last To Know” by Crystal Bowling.

Today, I am reading: Dee Tenorio’s A Wedding Story

Ruth Anne Barbellis—unhappily nicknamed “Rhubarb” by her lifelong enemy, Bobby Wichowski—is in Wedding Hell. Why?
Her sister is marrying Bobby’s brother.
She’s trussed up in a bridesmaid dress that must have been designed originally as a Victorian Torture Chamber.
To teach them a lesson, she and Bobby have been assigned to the Kiddie Table.
And that’s only the beginning…



and I can’t wait to finish this later… How about you? What are you currently reading?
