Musing Mondays (49)

Musing Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by Jenn at Books and a Beat, that asks you to muse about something book related each week.

My Musings for the Week...

Random Weekly Question from March 14th: Approximately how many books do you usually read per week? Per month?

There's no definite answer I can give to this question. I read at random, which means sometimes I read more than two books a week, even three. At other times, I don't read at all. It really just depends.

Other Musings...

Lately, I’m having fun with lists. It seems like a great way to revisit some series and talk about books I’ve already read (the ones I don't have any current plans to reread). So, for today, I’d thought I’d do another one. This time, I’m listing five series or trilogies that have a magical or supernatural flare to them...
  • Kat, Incorrigible series by Stephanie Burgis: This is a middle grade series, but I definitely like Burgis’ writing style, and how she incorporated the magic into the story.
  • Hex Hall Trilogy by Rachel Hawkins: I liked Hawkins’ spin on magic in the books. I had a few problems with the series, but overall it was pretty great.
  • The Cambion Chronicles by Jamie Reed: I liked these books because of the characters and the story. The supernatural elements worked really well, and I liked the way they were introduced into the plot.
  • The Archived series by Victoria Schwab: There were a lot of great elements combined with an interesting concept, good writing, and intricate storytelling.
  • The Night Has Teeth by Kat Kruger: This one was a more recent read, but the supernatural elements were definitely cool. I liked the way Kruger incorporated werewolves into the story, and showed how these sudden changes affected the character’s life.
So that’s it for today. I want to know. What are some of your favorite magical or supernatural themed series/trilogies or books?


  1. I'm on a VE Schwab binge right now. I want to read all her books!

  2. Okay...I started commenting, and the page literally seemed to "fly away" from me. LOL. Supernatural?
