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...
Other than a little medication drama, this was a quiet week. It is hard to get a prescription renewed when your doctor is out of the country! I got my refill with three days to spare but worried for a week that I was going to run out of medicine. Since it was for my Crohn's disease which is exacerbated by stress, it wasn't a very fun few days. I'm really glad that I usually have a two week supply of medicine when I try to refill.
The weather is improving though and the trees are finally leafing out. Yesterday the air conditioning ran at my house. The weekend is looking a little cooler but still very pleasant.
This week has the final day that I will be evicted from my Media Center for testing. Then it should be smooth sailing until the end of the school year. Smooth at least if you don't mind rearranging calendars. There are music programs, field trips, track and field days and other disruptions but they aren't bad to work around when the end of the year is in sight.
Read Last Week
With Malice by Eileen Cook was a fascinating psychological thriller about a girl with a traumatic brain injury who might or might not have deliberately killed her best friend in a car accident. The Italian police think she did. She doesn't know. All the public on social media has an opinion. My review will be posted on June 2.
The Vanishing Throne by Elizabeth May is the sequel to The Falconer. I enjoyed this historical fantasy very much. It is the second book in a trilogy so some plot lines are not resolved. My review will be published on June 4.
Steeplejack by A. J. Hartley is a mystery set in a fantasy world. I really liked the world building and the characters were great too. My review will be posted on June 8.
Autofocus by Lauren Gibaldi.
The Haunting of Falcon House by Eugene Yelchin is from my review stack.
Miss Mayhem is the second book in the Rebel Belle series. This is an autographed book I got at an author signing which will be donated to my HS Media Center as soon as I read it.
