It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (March 30, 2015)

It's Monday, What Are You Reading? is a meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey

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... 

I had a pretty quiet week last week. We had our second snow day of the season on Monday when we received 8 inches of snow. I enjoyed the surprise day off. Today, as I am writing this, we are having nasty weather too - sleet and strong winds. I'm glad it's Sunday and I don't have to go anywhere. It is a perfect day to stay inside and read.

Next week is the last week of the third quarter. The kids have school on Monday and Tuesday; the staff also works on Wednesday. Then it is our Spring Break. We have Thursday, Friday, and Monday off before beginning the final quarter of the school year.  Things are going to be especially busy at the Elementary this week and for the rest of the school year. Many of my colleagues are packing their rooms and moving to temporary locations as construction on our $8 million addition to the Elementary School begins this week. I don't have to move but I will be invaded as the SACC (School Age Child Care) Program will be moving into my Media Center along with their refrigerator. I'm fairly sure that they are also planning to move some photocopiers from the office into my space too. It should be an interesting Spring.

We are also entering into the Spring testing season. Since most of the tests are online these days, I get booted from my computer labs and have to figure out how to teach technology without access to technology. It is always interesting when that happens.

Read Last Week
Ferals by Jacob Grey was an entertaining middle grade fantasy. My review will be posted on May 2.

Deadly Spells by Jaye Wells was the third book in the Prospero's War series and was action-packed and entertaining. My review will be posted on April 25.
Shadow of Doubt by P. A. DePaul was a romantic suspense title I got from NetGalley for review. It was action-packed but the romance was a little too angsty for me. My review will be posted on April 15.

The Novice (Summoner, Book 1) by Taran Matharu was an excellent beginning to a new young adult fantasy trilogy. There was a lot of action and the main character was very likable. My review will be posted on April 29 for this May 5 release.

I am currently reading Hot Lead, Cold Iron by Ari Marmell which is an urban fantasy set in 1930s Chicago and stars a fae PI. I am enjoying it so far.

Next Week
Next on my adult stack are two more books from my TBR mountain.

Clockwork Heart by Dru Pagliassotti is a fantasy novel that begins a trilogy.

Dead Heat by Patricia Briggs is the third in a paranormal series that I enjoy.
These are the next three on my young adult review stack.

Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge
The Cost of All Things by Maggie Lehrman
The Heat of the Moment by Lauren Barnholdt

All of these are from Edelweiss and will be releasing in May.

  6. A little more snow huh! We got a little sunny weather returned to us, so seasons not settling yet. Yikes all those move arounds at school and space being invaded. Stay sane and enjoy your reading.

  7. Snow days? Oh, my! We had our share of that here in the South; thank goodness that spring has finally sprung. I just finished my spring break. Now bring on the summer vacation! You have some great looking books listed; it looks like my TBR might take another hit. Enjoy your time off!

  8. Wow can't believe your crazy weather. Enjoy Spring break, hope Spring actually shows up and happy reading :)

  9. We had to give up a day last week due to so many snow days and it snowed yesterday! Looking forward to spring break too! Have a great week.
