It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (April 24, 2017)

It's Monday, What Are You Reading? is a meme hosted at The Book Date.  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 was a long short week. We had Monday off as part of our Spring Break and the four work days seemed endless. I can never remember what day of the week it is when my work week starts on Tuesday. Next week will be a short week for me because I have taken Friday as a personal day. I'll be bringing still another load of stuff to my new home. It will also be short because the elementary is hosting a retirement part for me and two others who are retiring this year. They are getting a sub for me so that I can attend. That means I need to prepare sub plans for two days this coming week. That is always "fun".  I try to be thorough since I know how hard a job it is for a sub to come in to a strange situation and know what to do.

I am writing this on Saturday morning as I am trying to put off cleaning out my garage. I need to organize, clean, and throw things away so that I can put rummage sale things there soon. It shouldn't be surprising how cluttered a garage gets and how much road sand manages to deposit itself on the floor but I'm always surprised anyway.

Read Last Week
The Traitor's Kiss by Erin Beatty is a nice start to a fantasy trilogy. I liked the world building and I liked the characters. This one has intrigue, romance, and hidden identities. My review will be posted on May 6.

The Best Kind of Magic by Crystal Cestari is a contemporary fantasy set in Chicago. I liked the magic and the romance. It had a fast-paced plot and an entertaining main character. My review will be posted on May 11.

Currently
I'm currently reading The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich which is okay so far. I'm having trouble believing the whole "school for spies" thing.

Next Week
I hope to read two from my TBR mountain next week.

I had an empty mailbox this week.

  1. Nice! I was actually kind of curious about The Best Kind of Magic! Love a magical kind of read that mixes the magic and real world settings!
