It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a place to meet up and share what you have been, and are about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organize yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment and er… add to your groaning TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at The Book Date.
Jen Vincent, Teach Mentor Texts, and Kellee of Unleashing Readers decided to give It’s Monday! a kid-litfocus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle-grade novels, young adult novels, or anything in those genres – join them.
Happy Monday (well, as happy as a Monday can be…lol) everyone and I hope you all had a great weekend!!
We had another hot, but laidback, weekend. It’s too hot and humid out to do anything outside (the humiditytoday is96% and was similar over the weekend). We ended up watching the Olympics, eating homemade Chinese food, and just enjoying the AC.
Loki and Jesper’s mom had her vet appointment last week. She is around 2 years old, which surprised us because we thought she was younger. She was negative for feline leukemia, FIV, and heartworms which was another huge relief. She had a laceration on her back paw but it was healing, so the vet didn’t do anything but give her an antibiotic shot. She was underweight (barely 6lbs) but it wasn’t because of worms (she didn’t have any). It was because she was starving (well until we started feeding her). She got her vaccines and I dropped her off at her temporary foster (agood friend of mine). She gets spayed this coming Thursday and my friend will keep her until August 20th. That’s when she will be transported to New Jersey to the rescue who will put her up for adoption.
We are in the home stretch before school starts. I am waiting on Miss R’s teacher assignment and paperwork for Mr.Z. I need to turn those in at Open House in order to get his schedule. Miss B, on the other, will get her schedule two ways. One way is through PowerSchool and the other way is through her Open House. I also still have yet to buy school supplies. The supply list for 2nd grade is short (3 things) and 8th grade only has the basics (we have to seewhat the individual teachers want). 10th grade, nothing has been posted.
I have read 3 books since Wednesday. I got stuck on Sip Lake and struggled to read it. But, I powered through!!
I am still behind on writing my reviews. I wrote 2 over the weekend (which I never do) and I have 3 more to write….sigh. I meant to write 2 of those yesterday but I decided to watch Infinity War and End Game back to back followed by the ending ceremonies of the Olympics.
What I am Reading Now:
I started reading Fairest last night. I only got through the prologue but it has me wanting more!! If you couldn’t tell from the blurb, this is a Snow White retelling from the Evil Queen’s POV. I have read only one other book (Forest of a Thousand Lanterns) written from her POV and I loved it!! So can’t wait to read how this story will be.
What I plan on reading this week:
This week is all about the ARCs from NetGalley and I am hoping to cut down on that pile…sigh. I always go overboard with them. Thankfully, the books that I am reading are by authors I have already read before or I have seen good reviews for.
I love to read. My favorite genres are women's fiction, romance, psychological thrillers, fantasy, young adult, steampunk, dystopian, LGBTQIA, and paranormal.
