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...
Friday was the last day with students for this school year. We still have a final staff day on Monday but then the year will be wrapped up. Last week people commented that I must be sad to see my students go. I'm not...because, in most cases, they are not going anywhere. I am a K-12 Media Specialist and see the same students for classes from Kindergarten through sixth grade. Even after I don't have them in class anymore, I still see them when they come to use the media center in grades 7 - 12. Sometimes this is a good thing, other times...not so much.
I had a bit of excitement when I came home last Tuesday after work to find out that the guys who mow the lawn for my townhouse association managed to shoot a rock into my patio door. At first, I thought that it was rain caught in the screen until I realized that that side of door doesn't have a screen. The network of cracks is actually kind of attractive but I doubt that it is safe or energy efficient with the hole in it. Anyway, I've been on the phone a lot to insurance companies and companies who can repair the glass. I'm in a bit of a time crunch because it is my plan to leave on June 14 and not return until August 28. I really want a whole door before I go.
Since I'm hanging around here for the next week while waiting for a doctor's appointment, I hope to have lots of reading and relaxing time.
Read Last Week
Paper and Fire by Rachel Caine is the second book in the Great Libray series. I enjoyed this one but readers need to keep in mind that it is the second book in a trilogy. Since it had been a while since I read the first book, it took some time to reacquaint myself with the characters and the relationships. The action is fast and furious in this episode. My review will be posted on June 29.
This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab was an engaging urban fantasy that begins a series. The main characters were interesting and well-developed. I also like the world building. My review will be posted on June 30.
- Walk the Edge by Katie McGarry
- Wildefire by Karsten Knight was on the shelf and on my Kindle. I'll be reading the Kindle version. I got this one in 2011.
- What the Dead Want by Norah Olson is the only review book in the plans for next week. It won't be released until the end of July.
- Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
- A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
- Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas
Want to See What I Added to My Stack Last Week?
Nothing. I have an empty mailbox this week. However, take a look at my YA TBR Mountain.
You can check Inside of a Dog (my other blog) to see what adult books I read, reviewed, and plan to read.
