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.
Since I couldn't concentrate on reading, I also spent some time working on my blogs. I have set up posts for October on both of them. I have all the Teaser Tuesday and Book Beginning/Friday 56 posts finished and scheduled. I have lots of books to read but, at least, I know what book comes next on my reading plan. I expect this will save a lot of time this fall when school begins and I also need to be moving.
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
Body on the Bayou by Ellen Byron which was a fun and funny cozy. It is the second book in a series and was an engaging story. My review will be posted on Sept. 22.
Stalking Ground by Margaet Mizushima is also the second book in a mystery series. I loved the Colorado setting and the relationship between Mattie and her police dog Robo. My review will be posted on September 17.
Enemy Games by Marcella Burnard has been on my TBR mountain since 2013. This was a science fiction romance and was a good story. I thought the depictions of the aliens were very nicely done. My review will be posted on September 24.
In Safe Hands by Katie Ruggle. This finishes a series and I can't wait until the mystery that began in book one is finally resolved.
