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.

ACK! This is probably the last decent reading week. I start back to work on the 13th ... and family starts coming on the 10th. Someone or another will be here for two weeks (the weekend of the 15th? Something like ... well, 11 nieces and nephews plus 5 siblings plus 4 siblings in law plus my parents. Whatever that equals). Last week was a little slow because of insomnia. I fell asleep only when I TRIED to read. :P :P :P And if it was nighttime didn't actually stay asleep, even then.

books read the end of summer

Of those ... well, the LGBs just have the most awesome art. The Disney one for looking vintage-y and the Star Wars ones for being, well, Star Wars! I think A Pocket Full of Murder was probably my favorite book finished last week.

books currently reading
I keep not moving Red Rising off. It looked so good and so my thing ... but not getting anywhere with it. I did a post on the early beginnings of the three professional reads. Moriarty is an audiobook I'm listening to. Maloneys' started out pretty slow but ... like other reviewers ... it's getting more interesting! I think my next read will be Louis Sachar's Fuzzy Mud, though I'm really not sure when that will be! It probably should be another Bluebonnet book. I have 10 of them read. 8 were read before the list was even announced.

Don't forget Piper Green comes out tomorrow! 


  1. Oh, I should read Moriarty. The first book was good but pretty gruesome. Still, Horowitz! Maybe for winter break. Something to look forward to. Things definitely revving up for school to start here!

    1. So I actually haven't read the first one yet! I asked my brother if that was why maybe I was having a bit of trouble following a few aspects of the storyline but he said no, you didn't need to read them in order. So we'll see! I'm enjoying it, even with the little bit of confusion. And yes, ditto to the "Still, Horowitz!"

    2. Normally I would read them in order but Overdrive only had Moriarty in audio and that's what I needed. A book to listen to while on the treadmill and driving.
