#IMWAYR Jan. 13

It's Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. It is a great way to recap what you read and/or reviewed the previous week and to plan out your reading and reviews for the upcoming week. It's also a great chance to see what others are reading right now… who knows, you might discover that next “must read” book!

Our Kid Lit to YA version is hosted by Teach Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers.
GREAT IDEA! Check out all of the What Are You Reading? participants for title ideas.

Just three finished.

Poached ... a sequel to Belly Up! Fun. I'll write a little more when the release date gets closer. If you haven't read Belly Up yet read that first. You've got until April. Upper elementary or middle. Just the teeniest bit of language. I'm pretty sensitive to that so be aware ... also know, though, that it is hilarious! This one not quite so but still very good.

Hidden Girl ... not my usual fare but sadly interesting. Seems like it should be a TV show. But it's not. It was her life.

The Magician's Elephant ... audiobook for the WIN!

You'll notice one I mentioned last week is NOT on here. Flora & Ulysses. As I mentioned on Goodreads ... I could not get "in" to that one. Abandoned it (well, my ebook checkout timed out or I might have kept at it and tried to finish because it's on our state list for next year) because ... I didn't like it. In fact disliked what I got through of it. Blame it on the cedar, I guess. :/

Or the very strange story. But I liked Magician's Elephant. And that one was strange, too!

This week I'm attempting a bit more of the second Mysterious Benedict Society as an audiobook. So far it's been confusing to follow as I drive.

Then I need to finish these that I started before Christmas!

And I have an ebook checkout of The Lost Treasure of Tuckernuck. Have to get going on that one ... it's so hard to remember ebooks when they're not stacked on the bedside table super visible.

So. Will be starting allergy shots next week. Three times a week. I foresee more reading and mobile blogging in my future. But hey. If it works? Worth it.


  1. Hello there Ms. O. It's really interesting to read the contrasting reviews about Flora & Ulysses. I really have to read that one for myself soon. We do have a copy, as I gave it to my daughter for Christmas. Soon. :)

  2. Funny, I read Poached first, now have Belly Up beckoning me from the TBR shelf, can't wait! :) Can't wait to read Hollywood Dead Ahead... :)
    Good luck with all of those shots, ech! - Debbie @stylinlibrarian
