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 week was a cold and busy one. We had Parent-Teacher Conferences Monday and Thursday evenings and then had Friday off. I set or tied my conference record when I spoke with the parents of 5 of my students. That's 5 out of 330 possible students. No one wants to talk to their child's media teacher unless their child is failing!
I was supposed to have my taxes done on my day off but my tax preparer had a family emergency and resheduled for Monday after school. So, instead, I met with the realtor who will be listing my house for a first consultation. She did a quick walk-through and took some notes. We'll meet for longer this coming Wednesday evening. Also on tap for this week after school is a dentist's appointment for my semi-annual cleaning.
I used my extra time this weekend to go through my bedroom drawers and closet to sort out things to donate. I brought three grocery bags of stuff to the Salvation Army on Friday afternoon and have three more that I'll be dropping off on Monday. I'm paring down the wardrobe of clothes I haven't worn for a year but still have more paring down to do. I don't think I need 25 fleece cardigans of various colors and patterns but I couldn't decided which ones I did want to keep.
We are supposed to have a snowstorm rolling in Sunday afternoon that will last into Monday. I hope I can make it into town for my tax appointment Monday afternoon. I also hope that school isn't cancelled. A cancellation Monday will likely mean that we will be working Easter Monday instead of having it off as it is on the current schedule.
Read Last Week
The Sight by Chloe Neill this week it is the second book set in post-apocalyptic New Orleans where the magical barrier broke and paranormals flooded the city and began a war. I enjoy Neill's writing and characters and can't wait for the next book in this series. My review will be posted April 1.
The Girl Who Knew Too Much by Amanda Quick jumped ahead in line on my Review pile. Since I got this DRC from First to Read via Adobe Digital Editions which expire after a limited number of days, I moved it up to avoid any chance it will expire before I read it. So far I'm enjoying this romantic suspense title set in the 1930s - a new time period for the author. This is a May 9 release.
