I think you mentioned that you were going to start to keep a record of your day. I would highly recommend this and it helped to keep me sane when I couldn't work things out. I always found there was a pattern to our days, like longer sleep am and shorter afternoons etc.
I would also ditch the books with specific timed routines as I think they cause more stress than they are worth. If you need to follow a routine a simple pattern of feed/play/sleep should be enough to keep you sane without the stress.

3 month feeding pattern - confused
I don't know why your bub isn't slipping over to the next sleep cycle but as I suggested if she wakes happy then don't worry. My DD is 16 weeks and only JUST starting to nap longer than 40 mins, but sometimes it's more like 15mins too!
I have the philosophy that she sleeps all night (only semi wakes for feeds) and I can't expect a baby that sleeps all day and all night! I'll take the night sleeper I have lol! Good luck

I had a persistent catnapper and I used to try to get her to sleep again, at least a little bit before the next feed (every 3 hours) so that she wouldn't feed to sleep. It was pretty difficult because it seemed all I did was put her to sleep but she soon was able to stay awake for longer so she'd be OK on just her 40 minutes.

Unless your baby has also read the books and knows what to do.
