It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (March 7, 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 was an interesting week for the weather. It snowed twice. As a matter of fact when I was driving home from work on Friday I heard the weather person say we were having "freezing fog" along with our snow shower. That is a new concept for me. We had large puffy flakes falling thickly for about an hour and have temporarily snow-covered ground. Since it is supposed to warm up to about 50 in a couple of days, this snow won't last. I am really ready for Spring. People who had to travel more than the 3/4 mile I commute likely didn't have fun on their drive home.

Next week we have parent-teacher conferences on Thursday evening and a day off on Friday. I made an appointment to get my taxes done which means I really need to go through my tax stuff to make sure I have everything I need before Friday comes. I don't have a printer at home. Any missing paperwork needs to be printed at work.

I'm looking forward to more reading time with an extra day off. I have so many books on my review stack that are being released on April 5 that I still need to read. The big pile of review books read and reviews scheduled ahead over the summer is almost gone.

Read Last Week
The Girl in the Tower by Lisa Schroeder was an cute fantasy suitable for early middle graders. My review will be posted on March 24.

Winter by Marissa Meyer was an excellent story that brings the Lunar Chronicles series to a satisfying conclusion. My review will be posted on March 19.

Stone Field by Christy Lenzi is the next on my review stack. It is historical fiction taking place in during the Civil War but loosely based on Wuthering Heights. It will be released on March 29.

You can check Inside of a Dog (my other blog) to see what adult books I read, reviewed, and plan to read. 


  1. The Girl in the Tower looks cute, and I loved Winter. I've never been a fan of Wuthering Heights, but maybe I might like a Civil War version better.

  2. Oh ugh, tax season. Yuck. Can't wait for all that paperwork to be done so I can focus on reading again!

  3. Enjoy your extra reading time!
