It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (August 22, 2016)

It's Monday, What Are You Reading? is a meme begun by Sheila at Book Journey. Kellee at Unleashing Readers and Jen at Teach Mentor Texts have given it a kidlit focus.

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 has been another week of jumping through hoops to get a mortgage. Lots of phone calls and emails have been flying between my banker, my employer, my insurance agent, and me.

My friend went home last Monday after a nice visit. I spent the rest of the week watching the Olympics and playing lots of computer games.

I just have one week of vacation left before I return home for a few days of workshops and then the start of school. I'm eager to meet all of our new staff. We have 13 new professional staff and still a number of paraprofessional positions to fill.

Read Last Week
A Shadow Bright and Burning by Jessica Cluess begins a new historical fantasy series. I enjoyed this one and can't wait for the rest of the trilogy. My review will be posted on September 22.

Like a River Glorious by Rae Carson is the second book in her historical Gold Seer fantasy series. I love the 1849 California setting.

Next Week

I am being overly ambitious in thinking I'll read all these next week but they are the next six on my reading list.

  2. If anyone can get through these 6 books next week, I'm pretty sure it will be you. I enjoyed reading your review of Serafina. I'm looking forward to reading the next in the series.
