Musing Mondays – August 22nd, 2016

Musing Mondays is a weekly theme hosted by the lovely MizB @ Books and a Beat, that asks you to answer one of the prompt questions and that week’s random question.


  • I’m currently reading…
  • Up next I think I’ll read…
  • I bought the following book(s) this past week…
  • I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…
  • I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…
  • I can’t wait to get a copy of…
  • I wish I could read ___, but…
  • I blogged about ____ this past week…

THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Name a favorite book you’d take to the beach.

I Bought the Following Book(s) This Past Week…

Okay, so these are actually just the books I’ve bought this month. One time was in preparation for next month’s series binge I’ll be embarking on, and today’s buys were thanks to me finishing season 2 of Star Wars Rebels which reminded me that I fell behind on my Star Wars books. For those of you who weren’t aware – I’m a seriously hardcore Star Wars fan, like an embarrassing amount. I have to read every new book that is released, excluding the EU because that would just get me excited about stories that aren’t considered canon and I can’t do that to myself. Any other Star Wars fans out there who understand my crazy nerd self?

Sweet mother of God, this is what happens when you become a single adult with a full-time paying job – you spend all of your money on books.

I need to get a life.

Name a Favorite Book to Take to the Beach.

Hmmm, I don’t think I have an answer for this one. I would just take whatever book is next on my TBR. That’s the way I roll!

What books have you bought this month? What book would you take to the beach? Are you a huge Star Wars nerd like me? Or do you prefer Star Trek? There’s not right or wrong answer!

Well there is, but I won’t be upset with you for picking the wrong one. I enjoy Star Trek too, but it’s just not in the same league. 😉

  1. This is a great haul, and I hope you enjoy all of these books! I’ve only read The Winner’s trilogy (which I liked), the Throne of Glass books (which I didn’t like), and The School for Good and Evil (which I also didn’t like), but my BF is a HUGE Star Wars fan and he has read Claudia Gray’s books, and he thinks it’s amazing.

    I’m looking forward to getting into Mistborn at some point in my life. I heard it’s got one of the best magic systems ever. 😛

    1. Thank you so much! It turned out to be a whole lot more than I realized haha… I can’t wait to finish these series, as I’ve only read the first book in both of them. So glad to see that your boyfriend likes Gray’s Star Wars novels! It seems to be the general consensus on Reddit that they’re definitely fan favorites so I’m super excited to get into them. And I think Mistborn is almost a must read for fantasy fans at this point. It’ll be my first Sanderson book so I’ve got very high hopes! 😊
