It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (Sept. 17, 2018)

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.

I will be combining my YA and adult reading and purchases on this one weekly roundup. YA and middle grade reviews will still be posted on  Ms. Martin Teaches Media - my other blog.

Other Than Reading...

This week was a return to summer in Duluth. Our temperatures were in the high 70s and low 80s all week. I love that sort of weather. It was pretty humid all week though and thunderstorms rolled through Friday late night. We need the rain and I like the timing. I slept through the storms.

I had a pretty good reading week. I went to NetGalley to catch up on a review and noticed that I had some more books switch over to the Older Than 3 Months category bringing my total in that category to 12. I also have 16 in the Newer category. This isn't really a surprise since I read books by publication date and add books when they appear on NetGalley. Luckily, this week's reading plans include 5 of the 12 which will take care of all of the ones that are releasing in October.

I'm also planning to read the rest of the Iron Witch trilogy. I pulled the first one off TBR mountain a couple of weeks ago and now want to finish the trilogy. Also, after reading See How They Run by Ally Carter, the third in that series is on its way to me and already has a place on my calendar.

Next week is appointment-free and should be filled with reading and baseball games. I love weeks like that!

What was your week like?


  1. I've never read Ally Carter, but See How They Run looks tempting.

    Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  2. I love Ally Carter’ Heist Society Series and Gallagher Girls series but couldn’t get into the new one. Hope you enjoy it.

  3. I really want to read Sadie! A Crafter Knits a Clue was a cute book. A little wobbly at first, but ended strong.

  4. Trail of Lightning sounds really good. And you made it through the Weber! (But of course you did. :)) Have a good reading week!

  5. I have some of the same cozy mysteries waiting for me to read and review too. I never read Ally Carter, but her books do look good. Have a great week!

  6. Oh nice! Lots of new to me ones here! Hope you enjoy your reads for this week!

    Here's my Monday Wrap-up

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  8. Magic Triumphs is one of my most anticipated reads.

  9. So many books! Enjoy them and the last of the summer weather, too.

  10. It was definitely a warmer week here too! Trail of Lightning and See How they Run both look good to me.

    Hope you have a super week!

  11. Looks like you've been busy. So many awesome books here. The Hollow of Fear is one I want to read.

    I'm glad it's been warm too. Gave me a chance to get the garden planted before the torrential rains coming tomorrow thanks to the tail end of Hurricane Florence.

    Hope you have a great week. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  12. I'm also late on my Netgalley reads. I feel guilty about this.

  13. I have a few older than three months on NetGalley too.

    A Ring of Truth looks good...I downloaded it too.

    I like A Murder By Any Name too.

    ENJOY your week.

  14. I love the cover for The Wood Queen. The book sounds really interesting too! I will have to check that series out. :) And The Deepest Roots sounds great too!!

    Have a great week!
