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...
So, the first quarter of our school year is over. I'm writing this Saturday morning and know I'll be spending a good part of the weekend working on grades and report cards for my students. I have also decided what is going to appear on my blogs from now until Dec. 31 and have set up the posts. All the Teaser Tuesdays and Friday Memes posts are finished and scheduled. Of course, I still have a bunch of books to read but, at least, I know what they are.
I have a number of review books scheduled for Inside of a Dog but only have one review book on the December list for Ms. Martin Teaches Media. It was fun to look through my YA TBR stack to see what caught my eye. I picked a number of books that were first in a series. The rest of the series is on TBR mountain. If I don't like the first book, it will be easy to donate the rest and make some room on my TBR shelves. Alternately, if I like the first, I'll schedule the rest into my 2017 calendar.
Our weather has been unseasonably warm so far in November. We are expecting to get near 70 today which is about 20 degrees warmer than usual. I should take advantage of the nice weather and go for what might be my last outdoor walk of 2016. It would probably be good to have an excuse to get up from my computer for a break later.
Read Last Week
Gap Life by John Coy was a great contemporary story about a young man who doesn't want to follow his father's plans for his life but doesn't know what he wants to do instead. This is the story of the summer after he graduates from high school. My review will be posted on Nov. 17.
Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst was a very nice fantasy that starts a series. I loved the world building and the characters were nicely developed. I loved the romance. The story was also filled with all sorts of tension. My review will be posted on Nov. 19.
The Girl in the Picture by Alexandra Monir.
Want to See What I Added to My Stack Last Week?
Nothing. My several new books this week were all for my Adult stack.
You can check Inside of a Dog (my other blog) to see what adult books I read, reviewed, and plan to read.
