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...
We had beautiful weather for Halloween which meant 30 or so little goblins knocked on my door. This was a massive change from last year's one trick or treater. I was afraid I was going to run out of candy but the supplies lasted.
This was the last week of the first quarter of our school year so I spent the week assessing and assigning grades. I have grades on report cards for 11 of my 12 classes and just have to do the last class on Monday. Monday is an inservice/workday which I hope to use planning the lessons for the next quarter.
I will also be attending our school board meeting on Monday evening. I haven't gone to one for years and it is my turn. Our teacher's union tries to have a couple of teachers at every meeting so that we can report back to our colleagues. This one might be contentious as we are working without a contract and negotiations have broken down. I think we have a date scheduled for mediation.
At home, I spent some time catching posting my reviews on Amazon. I posted all of the reviews for the ARCs I read that were released in October.
Read Last Week
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo this week. I thought it was an excellent heist story with intriguing characters. I can't wait for the next book in the series. My review will be posted on Dec. 26. It was the last book I needed to read to have all my reviews scheduled for the rest of 2015.
I am not currently reading anything. I have a couple of adult books to read so that my calendar gets back into balance. I like to alternate between YA and adult books and read them in the order I've listed them on my calendar.
Secrets of the Dragon Tomb by Patrick Samphire is a middle grade story.
Teen Frankenstein by Chandler Baker is the next YA on my stack.
The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow was a deal for my Kindle that sounded interesting.
All In by Jennifer Lynn Barnes is the next book in the Naturals series. I have enjoyed the rest of the series.
The Conjurer's Riddle by Andrea Cremer also continues a series I enjoy.
Manners & Mutiny by Gail Carriger concludes her Finishing School series.
You can check Inside of a Dog (my other blog) to see what adult books I read, reviewed, and plan to read.
