It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Another week gone. This week, we're on vacation. Next week, C starts second grade. It's hard to believe the summer is almost over. I'm glad we're finishing it with a vacation though!

I had a pretty good week in terms of reading and reviews. First, I reviewed a fun detective story that mixes in some astrology as well: Murder in the 11th House by Mitchell Scott Lewis. Then I reviewed Artsy-Fartsy by Karla Oceanak, which is the first in a series that is great for elementary aged kids.

I also hosted a guest post by author Pamela Samuels Young about How to Write a Novel Despite Your Day Job. If you're an author, I'm sure you'll find some of her advice very useful.

As far as reading goes, I finally found time to finish up The Keeper of Lost Causes by Jussi Adler-Olsen. This was a great mystery that kept me interested in the characters and the plot from beginning to end. Since I'm on vacation, I doubt I'll be able to write a review this week, but I highly recommend you check it out if you like mysteries. It's available on NetGalley.

I also finished What Language Is by John McWhorter. That review will be up on Thursday for the tour, along with a giveaway ~ so keep an eye out for it! This is a fascinating look at the development of language.

Currently Reading
I'm going to start The Summoner by Layton Green tonight.

Up Next
After The Summoner, I'll be reading the next of the Dominic Grey Novels by Layton Green: The Egyptian.

  2. I keep hearing good things about The Keeper of Lost Causes.

    I agree - summer has flown by! My kids have 2 more weeks off, then they go back.

    Have a wonderful vacation and enjoy your last bit of summer!!

  3. Enjoy your upcoming books. I'm posting late this week because I've been on a trip to the mountains and out of reach of the internet. Please come see what I've read.
