Musing Mondays

MUSING MONDAYS is a weekly event where MizB 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!

**Dani's topic choice...
• 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.
I am currently reading Sunrise by Mike Mullin. I chose to read this book because the first two books in the series are amazing. And the reason why I chose the to read the first book in the series back in 2012 (published 2011) is because, not only does the author lives in my state of IN, but I am a huge Apocalyptic/Post-Apocalyptic fanatic. Mike also invited me to the second book release party in Bloomington but unfortunately I had prior engagements and couldn’t attend. I was not very happy about it either.
What do I think of it so far? In a single word… INCREDIBLE! It’s got adventure, love, despair, a touch of horror and Sunrise is fast paced – no dull moments. I literally GOL - gasped out loud. The whole series is written at a breakneck pace and far from predictable.
I am usually a skimmer but skimming is not allowed in a series when every tidbit of it has juicy info. And every character is important – and that’s hard to come by.
**Jax's topic choice...
• Describe one of your reading habits.
My mind tends to drift . Ex: I will have read three pages, and then have to go back and reread those pages because my mind was elsewhere. :/ It doesn't happen all the time, but it does happen enough to where I'm like what the heck?!
But then, there are other times where I get so wrapped up in a book that the above isn't an issue, so those times are great!





  1. My mind sometimes also drifts, especially if the book is just not catching my attention.

  2. I will have to check out Mike Mullin's work!

    I have that problem sometimes too Jax. I have days where its hard to focus and end up re-reading paragraphs/pages too.

    heres my musing:

  3. I have the drifting off thing happening more when I'm listening to an audiobook--I've really had to train myself to pay attention and not let my mind wander to other things--especially when I'm listening as I'm driving.
    And--Welcome to Musing Mondays--it's fun here! :-)


We love comments - even short ones!
