It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Good morning. I have my coffee cup in hand and am ready to tackle the day. I hope you had a great week! Here's what's been going on around here.

Last week, I finished The Pharos Objective by David Sakmyster, and I read The Raising by Laura Kasischke, which is my book club's June selection. It was a one week loan from the library so I had to fit it in unexpectedly when it was ready for me. I'll try to put up a review this week, but I'm pretty far behind on reviews!

Speaking of that, I did get a few done last week. Where it was Children's Book Week, I focused mostly on children's books. First, I reviewed Aliens on Vacation by Clete Barrett Smith, which is a middle-grade fiction book. I also reviewed A Call for a New Alphabet by Jef Czekaj, which is a fun book about spelling rules. I also put up my What My Children Are Reading post on Saturday, where I shared mini reviews of four children's books.

In among all the children's book reviews, I did put up my review of Hotel Angeline: A Novel in 36 Voices. Be sure to check out my review for that one because I think most of you who read this blog would probably be interested in it. It's a novel that was written by 36 different authors over a period of just one week. It's quite fascinating how they did it.

Currently Reading
I'm now reading my book club's May selection, which finally became available at the library. It's The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot.

Up Next
I'm going to read Blood Trust by Eric Van Lustbader next, and I'm going to focus on writing reviews for In the Lap of the Gods by Li Miao Lovett, Pharos Objective by David Sakmyster and The Raising by Laura Kasischke.

  1. I just put Aliens on Vacation on my TBR list - I have an 8 year old who reads more than I do and we're always on the lookout for a great MG book.

    I listened to the audio of Henrietta Lacks and found it to be really interesting.

    Happy Reading!
