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 week back after Christmas Break just flew by. We are nearing the end of the first semester. Students are busy trying to finish projects before they change classes. I am busy trying to keep up with the assessing and trying to get a head start on the next semester when I will see seven new groups of students.
Our weather has finally started to look like winter. We have had snow, rain, and/or sleet every day this week. Next comes the cold! Luckily, I live very close to work and haven't had to deal with the snow covered, icy or slushy roads for more than 3/4 mile.
This is perfect bundling weather except it also seems to be meeting season at work. I had one Wednesday evening last week and have one next Wednesday after school too. Then there is the Continuing Education Committee meeting that I am trying to schedule around all the other meetings and the craziness of the last week of the semester and the first week of the new semester. Right now, it looks like the first week in February might be our opening.
Read Last Week
My plans to concentrate on YA books was derailed when I received a few adult books that needed to be read and reviewed before my February releases. I only had a chance to read one YA book this week.
Behind the Canvas by Alexander Vance was a excellent adventure that also included a lot of information about art and artists. My review will be posted on Feb. 17.
The Shadow Queen by C. J. Redwine and am enjoying it so far.
- The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig (Feb. 16)
- Burning Glass by Kathryn Purdie (March 1)
- A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro (March 1)
- Underwater by Marisa Reichardt
- Secrets of the Dragon Tomb by Patrick Samphire
- Manners & Mutiny by Gail Carriger
I have heard good things about Need by Joelle Charbonneau. I bought a Kindle copy when it was featured on my BookBub newsletter for $2.99.
I was approved by Macmillan at NetGalley for Stone Field by Christy Lenzi on Friday. I had asked for this one first when I got the catalog in August. When it didn't arrive, I asked for it at NetGalley. It was long enough ago that I thought I wouldn't be receiving it. It is a romance that will be released on March 29.
