It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (Jan. 23, 2017)

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 a messed up week at school. We had an early release on Monday because of impending ice and a day off on Tuesday when the ice arrived. The last week of the semester is not a good time to miss school! We have had ice problems all week. On Friday three of our buses slid off rural roads due to icy conditions. Only one of the buses had students on it. The rescue bus which had gone to get them was the third one to go off the road. The paved roads were in good condition but the gravel roads iced over. We have also had rain, fog and dense fog all week. This is weird weather for Minnesota in January.

On the plus side, the extra time off did allow me to do some planning for the second semester. I also have all my report cards finished and can use our work day on Monday to get ready for semester two. I also have to begin the day at the clinic for blood work before my annual physical and leave early to meet a plumber at my house to fix a slow leak in my heating system. After that, I need to run into town and pick up a prescription that I'm out of but that the insurance company wouldn't let my pharmacy fill until Monday.

I really want some normal days to happen soon. All this extra stuff is stressful.

Read Last Week
This Adventure Ends by Emma Mills was a smart contemporary by a debut author. My review will be posted on March 2.

The Dragon's Price by Bethany Wiggins was an epic fantasy with lots of action, lots of romance, and interesting characters. My review will be posted on Feb. 23.

Freedom's Slave by Heather Demetrios is the final book in her Dark Caravans series. It was filled with action and romance. My review will be posted Feb.25.

I am in the middle of The Swan Riders by Erin Bow. This is the sequel to The Scorpion Rules.

Nothing. I had an empty mailbox.

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