What are you reading this week?


  1. Lots of interesting looking titles! A Once Crowded Sky caught my eye. Hope you enjoy them all.

  2. Those look fun! Enjoy!

  3. I'm thinking of using an Audible credit for Snapper. It sounds like a good one!

  4. Looks like a very good bunch of books. The once crowded sky looks particularly interesting. It seems to take some common themes and present them in a very uncommon way.

  5. Looks like a great collection. Enjoy!

  6. Looks like you have a nice variety on your stack. I hope you enjoy them all. My Monday Report is here. Happy reading!

  7. I got Slow Getting Up too and am excited about it because I love football.

  8. Oh! The Third Son! I hope you enjoy it even half as much as I did :)

    Have a wonderful week!

  9. Goat Mountain's blurb makes it sound interesting to me. You have a good looking stack of books there- enjoy your week of reading.

  10. These are all new to me, but looks like Tilted World is popular in mailboxes this week. Happy reading

  11. The Tilted World is one that caught my attention. Looks like a great mailbox! I hope you enjoy them all.

  12. These all look great - they are new to me! I'm finally reading The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks this week. It's been on my "to-read" list for years!

  13. I like the look of The Tilted World. I have an audio copy of The Third Son and am definitely looking forward to that one.

  14. I brought Goat Mountain and Tilted World home from the library conference. I'll be interested to see what you think!

  15. Here Comes Mrs. Kugelman sounds interesting! Enjoy!

  16. I haven't really heard of any of your books but they all seem interesting

    Wishing you a great reading week

  17. I enjoyed Snapper even though it didn't have as much about birds as I thought it would from the looks of the cover. It was a quirky little book.

  18. Looking forward to your review of Mrs. Kugelman. Enjoy your new books!


I love getting comments and your thoughts...
