#IMWAYR July 13

It's (almost) 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.

Circus Mirandus, The Book of Kings (release date in Sept), and The Mad Apprentice were my favorites of the week.
CM is not for the dry eyed. I listened to the audiobook. (On a total side note the narrator is one of the guys from ... what was the name of that show. Perfect Strangers? Dating myself there.) I have quite enjoyed all of the Mister Max books (a great supporting cast!) and the main character makes the Forbidden Library books. She's awesome. I should do blog posts on both of these titles. I ... abandoned The Cabinet of Curiousities. I hardly ever do that. I keep reading thinking I will like it more by the end. Often I do. Sometimes I still feel meh. Sometimes ... every once in a blue moon ... I get halfway through and I can't go any further. :/

Let's see. This week I have ... Jack and Paper Things checked out from the public library. And I need to start reading the books I swiped from the collection at school or the ones that have been on my shelf but I might want to give to nieces and nephews when they come in a couple weeks. The summer rapidly draws to a close. TARGET IS DEAD TO ME FOR A COUPLE WEEKS for already having you know what out on display. UPS man knows I'm boycotting Target because I've been a bit Amazon crazy. #summervacationcangetexpensive


  1. I have the Circus Mirandus audiobook on hold and Perfect Strangers was my FAVORITE show when I was tiny, so I'm pretty excited now :-P

  2. I've been hearing such good things about Circus Mirandus. I need to find a copy for myself.

  3. Perfect Strangers, no way! Which guy? That's too funny. Circus Mirandus was definitely a great book, and I could see how it would be an incredible audio book too.

  4. I used to love Perfect Strangers, may have to check that out! I have such love for Circus Mirandus! And Nana... spent time with Lauren Castillo at nerd camp. She is lovely!

  5. You should join us on our #MirandusChat on 7/23 at 9PM. I am reading it now--looking forward to hopefully falling in love with it too. (Also, I loved Perfect Strangers!!!!!!)
    Looking forward to your thoughts on Jack.

    Happy reading this week! :)

  6. I have Paper Things from the library myself waiting to be read. Can't wait to start Circus Mirandus too. Enjoy the rest of your reading week!
