#IMWAYR June 27

It's Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Date. 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.

Just home from a lovely family reunion in the mountains with lots of time with 5 siblings (and 3 of 4 in laws), my parents, and 11 nieces and nephews. Came home with a cold so relaxing time sounds nice. Even though there are Things To Do. Got some reading done in the car but no mobile blogging! Some of these were read the week before, just didn't get a post last week. If you ever poke around IG you got a couple pics.

My favorite was Kids Deserve It. Your School Rocks was also good. Need to go back and look at my electronic highlights. I'll do another post on them later because they are worth it!

City of Thirst took me a while to get through which is odd because it's so good!

Library Olympics was fun but I liked the first one best.

I didn't actually read the Enemy books all that carefully. I find them a bit gooky. Even for zombie apocalypse books! Oddly, though, the characters keep me wanting to know more.

I've been listening to The Wild Robot audiobook (I know, I'm missing the pictures!).
Also reading these (combo of purchased and Kindle Lending Library. And I signed up for the 30 day Unlimited trial when I noticed they had quite a few teaching books that looked interesting. Their fiction selection is pretty much rubbish but I'm poking around the PD!).
And should finish Kiersten White's And I Darken.

We'll see what else!


  1. It was interesting to read your comments about The Enemy series. I have boys who devour Higson's series, and haven't read one of them. I'm glad that the characters are interesting. I thought that about the Ranger's Apprentice books I read, although there were certainly some good adventures there.

    1. Thanks ... hopefully you understood what gooky meant? :P Just lots of boils and pus and chopping off of heads. Not all zombie books are like that. And yet there are some really interesting characters that keep me coming back. Skimming over the ... "moist" parts and just seeing what is going to happen next!
