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

It's Monday, What Are You Reading? is now hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date.

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
Etched in Bone by Anne Bishop is the fifth book in the excellent The Others fantasy series. I really enjoyed this episode. My review will be posted on March 2 for this March 7 release.

I just started The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco.

All Kindle books this week.

To see what Young Adult books I have been reading and plan to read, check out Ms. Martin Teaches Media - my other blog.


  1. Sorry to hear about all the weather problems! Our winter (in Maryland) has been mild so far, but we generally expect the ice and snow around February so that could change soon!

    Your two cozies upcoming look interesting, and I'm loving the cover of The Bone Witch. Here's my reading list for this week:

  2. That's scary about the buses! We are in a county school system that involves a lot of busing so anytime there's a threat of bad weather the schools close. Of course I'm in the South so that's not all that often! You've got some great books read and coming up. I'm really hoping to read Anne Bishop this year and I have Elementary She Read coming up. It looks great!

  3. I hate driving on ice! I can understand your wanting some normalcy. You have some good cozies there.

  4. One thing I do not miss about living in Nebraska is ice storms. I think I need to check out Southern Gothic. Sounds good! Have a good week!

  5. Ice storms seem really scary...stay safe!

    So glad you were able to catch up, though...and now you are closer to being finished.

    Enjoy your week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  6. Terrifying! Hope everyone was ok. We have had crazy fog here too! This weather - yuck.

    I hope you get your meds - you are the second person today that I have read has had an issue with that.

    Those cozies look great!

  7. That ice sounds very lethal, poor students in the bus. I am so looking forward to Etched in Bone, I love it on audio so will wait till it turns up in that format.

  8. I hope this week will be better.

  9. Eek! Scary conditions for anyone on a bus! Hope everyone was okay!

    Ooh nice reads!! Sooo need to get caught up in the Others and the Guild Hunter series!! So behind in them!

    Here's my Monday Wrap-up

    Have a GREAT day!
