It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? hosted at Book Journey

It's Monday!  What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

I went to Malaprop's for the book launch of The League of Seven by Alan Gratz on Friday. It's a middle-grade steampunk adventure. I had a great time and the book sounds like it's "full of awesome," which is what the author said he was going for. I can't wait to read it! I hope to write more about the event this week.

Up Next:
It's almost October and time for my annual horror-fest! I'm heading to the library on my lunch break tomorrow. I typically read a lot of Stephen King and Joe Hill in October but I'd like to branch out a little. I may pick up The Isle of Blood by Rick Yancey. Any other recommendations?
