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...
This was a quiet week. We are nearing the end of the semester and so students are busy finishing final projects. We had a tour of the new part of the elementary which should be open for business by the end of the month. Preschool classes are already started in their new location but the offices and cafeteria still have some work that needs to be done.
Our weather had taken a turn for the cold here in Minnesota. We haven't had much snow and that doesn't look like its going to change in the near future. That is a good thing because I have a couple of doctor's appointments next week that I don't want to have to reschedule because of weather.
I'm disappointed but not surprised that I didn't win the Powerball last week. I guess I'll just have to continue life as usual instead of moving to a tropical location where I can just laze on the beach.
Read Last Week
The Shadow Queen by C. J. Redwine was an excellent fantasy loosely based on the Snow White fairy tale. I loved the action and the romance. My review will be posted on Feb. 18.
The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig was an excellent time travel story. The main character was wonderful. I enjoyed the Hawaiian setting too and even liked the potential romantic triangle in the book. My review will be posted on Feb. 20.
Burning Glass by Kathryn Purdie is next on my review stack. This is a fantasy recommended for fans of Red Queen and Shadow and Bone, both of which I enjoyed.
- A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro
- The Great Hunt by Wendy Higgins
- Where You'll Find Me by Natasha Friend
