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...
Well, I am a homeowner again. Currently my brother and I own three houses (but only have one mortgage).
I have given my unofficial notice to my elementary principal that this will be my last year as Dover-Eyota's media specialist. My official notice will go the the superintendent and the school board next spring.
I'm back here in Eyota today getting ready to start the new school year. There was a slight change in my schedule. I thought I'd be seeing 5th graders, 3rd graders, and 1st graders this semester. Instead I'll be seeing 2nd graders this semester and 1st graders next semester. I know what all my classes are doing the first week of school which is the advantage of a four-day rotation of classes and a four-day week. Each day will be the same! However, I need to plan for the next few weeks before school starts on Tuesday.
Read Last Week
Betrayals by Kelley Armstrong this week which is the 4th book in her Cainsville series. I liked the way the relationships between Olivia, Gabriel and Ricky are deepening. I like all the characters in this series and can't wait to read the next book. My review will be posted on October 12.
Gameboard of the Gods by Richelle Mead had been sitting on my TBR mountain for more than three years. Once I began it, I really enjoyed this fantasy story and immediately purchased the next book in the series. My review will be posted on October 8.
Friday Barnes Under Suspicion by R. A. Spratt which was an entertaining middle grade mystery. I like that Friday is an eleven-year-old Sherlock Holmes. There is lots of humor in this series too. My review will be posted on October 8.
Afterglow by Karsten Knight which is the conclusion of the Wildefire YA paranormal series. I like that the characters are reincarnations of gods from a wide variety of mythologies.
These were posted on Ms. Martin Teaches Media this week:
- The Faerie Ring by Kiki Hamilton
- The Ones by Daniel Sweren-Becker
- Diplomatic Immunity by Brodi Ashton
- The Garden Intrigue by Lauren Willig
- My Wild Irish Dragon by Ashlyn Chase
- Roadside Assistance by Marie Harte
This week all my additions were adult books.
The Immortal Crown by Richelle Mead after enjoying Gameboard of the Gods.
I received both print and Kindle versions of two books I supported in a Kickstarter campaign.
