It's Monday. What are you reading?

BookJourney hosts a weekly meme entitled "It's Monday, What are you reading?"
I thought I would test it out and see if it is something that works for me. (I am in no way a reviewer of books and so in the past I have steered away from posting much about books - best leave it to those who are good at it!)

I just finished the second book in this series by John Scalzi, and this is the third. I have historically NOT been a fan of science fiction, but in the past year I have found a love for the genre. I think I was burned out of reading mysteries that were not mysterious with characters that fell short of my expectations of them. My spouse reads science fiction and a guy whose blog I LOVE (Dangerous Dan) inspired me further. It was Dan who recommended on goodreads that Old Man's War was a great read and so I checked it out of my library and fell in love.
I am now on book three and I have not been disappointed yet.

I'm hopping through from It's Monday, What are you Reading?

I traditionally haven't been a fan of sci fi either but I like dystopian and post-apocalyptic sci fi now.
