Musing Mondays (3)


     Musing Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading, that 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 Musings for the week...
     I'm going to keep this kind of short today, but lets talk briefly about books with illustrations. Sometimes I do like books that have small illustrations in them, because it gives me a sense of what the characters and settings really look like beyond what my imagination came up with. (They also come in handy when small, intricate details like symbols, some pieces of complicated jewelry worn by the characters, etc aren't really explained.) Some great examples of books with illustrations in them are: The Leviathan Trilogy by Scott Westerfeld, The Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson, The League of Princes Trilogy by Christopher Healy, *shuffles through books*...hmmm I don't seem to have many young adult ones, but plenty of middle grade ones. Anyway, what about you guys?  What are your thoughts on books with illustrations, young adult or otherwise?
