It’s Monday! What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.
Other Than Reading...
Our first full week of school also went great. The weather is pleasant. The construction at the elementary building is going well and isn't disrupting my part of the school at all. It will be nice when it is all finished in December and the people who have been displaced are all able to move into their permanent locations. Since the office has moved into the teachers' lounge, it will be nice to have our lounge back.
I spent Thursday afternoon at the dentist. I had a cavity under a crown and needed to have the crown removed, the cavity taken care of, and then all the prep work for a new crown. Since I have an extremely strong gag reflex, this wasn't a fun afternoon for me or for my dentist. Now I have to go back in a couple of weeks to get my new crown. Meanwhile, I have a temporary plastic crown and have been told to try to chew on the other side.
I have been trying to walk at least 8000 steps a day and most school days I easily make that goal. Friday afternoon I missed my walk though because I was waiting for phone calls. I still need to work on getting more walking in during the weekends. Reading, blogging, housework and errands don't make me feel like going out for a walk.
Read Last Week
I had heard great things about Court of Fives by Kate Elliott and was pleased to find that all of them were true. I really enjoyed this high fantasy which begins a series. My review will be posted on November 21.
I am a big fan of Rachel Vincent and was also happy to read The Stars Never Rise. This one also begins a new series that is part dytopia and part fantasy. My review will be posted on November 25.
Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine on my TBR mountain since it was released. I am eager to finally get a chance to fit it into my reading calendar.
