#IMWAYR On Tuesday Some of my Summer Reads

It's (almost) 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.

It has been a long time since I got around to participating in It's Monday What Are You Reading.

That's some of them from this summer. It almost feels cheesy to have enjoyed Atomic Habits so much (FICTION FOREVER!!!!) but it was so good. 132 Kindle highlights gives you an idea.

Winterhouse #1 has some issues but ... I still really want to know what happens next so I need to find book 2.

Archimancy is brand new I feel kind of the same ... it has a few, to steal a phrase from the Deck the Hallmark podcast WAIT WHATS but still, on the whole, I REALLY want to know what happens next. I got to read an early copy from Netgalley or Edelweiss. One of the two. So it will be a while before the next one is done. The Thickety was super fun. Archimancy I think could be read by younger kiddos than The Thickety.

Any time there is a Bruce book I am there! I sent the new board book to my nephew but he lives far away so I haven't seen it. :(

We Are the Gardners is lovely ... but do kids like it?

You can see more specifics on other titles on Goodreads. Hopefully I am back in the saddle. Seriously, I started blogging forever ago and that was what it was for. To document my books!

Tomorrow I go back on contract. Kids don't go back to school until the 19th but we go tomorrow. So my two focuses will be the audio that FINALLY came back in (it ran out last time before I finished it!)

  1. Oh my goodness, you have had some WONDERFUL reading on your plate, this summer. I loved many of these and I’m still working on Breakout. I also cannot wait to get my hands on Shouting at the Rain and I’m just about to start at ARC of Momentous Events in the Life of a Cactus. I will read everything Dusti Bowling writes. I just adored her 24 Hours in Nowhere, too! I pretty much find things I appreciate or love in every book I read, but for some reason Aru Shah just didn’t work for me. I had such a hard time connecting with her personality. I am hoping it was just that I was just turned off by the audiobook version, so I just may go ahead and move forward with Aru Shah and the Song of Death. Thanks for all the shares, Angie, and I hope you have an excellent reading week!
