It's Monday! What Are You Reading? #7

Hosted weekly by The Book Date.

Happy Monday!

It's been a busy week for me. Having family in town has kept me socializing more than usual, but still, with bowling and The Bachelorette, pedicures and Thai food, I've had funand still had time for reading.


The Book of Essie by Meghan MacLean Weir
A contemporary-fiction story of a girl trying to escape her in-the-public-eye, religious family. Very interesting.

Burial Rites by Hannah Kent
A beautifully written historical story about a woman sentenced to death in Iceland.

The Grim Grotto by Lemony Snicket
I'm getting so close to finishing A Series of Unfortunate Events!

The Hero's Guide to Storming the Castle & The Hero's Guide to Being an Outlaw by Christopher Healy
So fun! An entertaining take on fairy tale adventure.

The Knowing by Sharon Cameron
A YA sci-fi/fantasy that takes the society of The Forgetting to the opposite extreme.

The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate
I've been meaning to read this Newbery Medal winner for years, and I'm glad I finally did. It's a heartwarming animal story.

Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young
A YA Vikings story! I loved it.

The Summer List by Amy Mason Doan
 A sweet story of two high-school friends reconnecting and remembering after years apart.
Won through Goodreads. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.

Counterfeit Cowboy by Lacy Williams
This Monstrous Thing by Mackenzi Lee

  2. I read The One and Only Ivan to my class when I was teaching. Sad but good! I want to read The Summer List.

  3. I adore Angus Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging. I have the entire series. I could go for a re-read. Thanks for the reminder. My weekly updates

  4. I'm reading The Demon Race by Alexandria Warwick. I'm 20% in and so far I'm really liking it. I also hope to start an audiobook somewhere this week but I'm still deciding on which one.

  5. Wow, you got a lot of reading done. I need to get a copy of The Book of Essie. I’ve seen lots of good reviews lately. Enjoy your upcoming reads. Have a great week!
