It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (September 11): 09/11/17

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (August 31)
Hosted by Kathryn of Book Date.

With school starting, my youngest has caught the cold that is going around her school, and she's shared it with me. Boo.

I'm slowly reading The Wangs vs the World. Part of my problem is the editions' small typeface. I know I need to get my eyes checked and I'm certain I need reading glasses. That's next on my list of things to do after the house buying stuff is over and done with.

What I read:

I'm Thinking of Ending Things
I'm Thinking of Ending Things by Iain Reid ; research
Outside In
Outside In by Jennifer Bradbury; library book
Bow Wow
Bow Wow by Spencer Quinn; library book
Latte Trouble
Latte Trouble by Cleo Coyle; personal collection (audio)
   

What I'm reading:

Wangs vs the World
The Wangs vs the World by Jade Chang; personal collection
Wrongside of the Paw
Wrong Side of the Paw by Laurie Cass; personal collection (ebook)

My daughter is nearly over it. That just leaves me.

I hated it when I had to move to glasses.Good luck

I wore glasses as a teen and then grew out of the need. Now though I seem to be back to needing them.

Hear the Wovles sounds interesting, as does The Dragon Princess. I hope you enjoy your books!

Here's my It's Monday! What Are You Reading? post.

The Dragon Princess is the sixth book in the Frog Princess series. It takes place years after the initial books and deals with Emma's daughter.

Hope that cold passes soon and the glasses issue gets sorted!!

The glasses issue will be easy once I find the time to make an appointment.

Good luck with the glasses and the house buying. You're reading a lot of good books.

The house buying/selling has me more stressed out than the glasses.

I'm curious about Finding Audrey and Latte Trouble.

Have a great week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

The first twenty pages of Finding Audrey are funny but I don't know where the plot is going yet. Latte Trouble is the third of the Coffeehouse mystery series.

First of the year colds are one of the many things I don't miss about teaching. Hope you both feel better soon. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

This year's cold took us by surprise because we've been so preoccupied with selling our house and buying a new one. The initial drama, though, is over and I can just wallow in my cold for a day.

I like the looks of Latte Trouble. :)

Thanks for coming by my blog, Sarah.

Have a great week.

I enjoyed Latte Trouble. It's the third in the series but you could read it by itself.

I'll be interested to hear how you like Wangs vs. The World. I had a hard time with it, but it may have been the frame of mind I was in at the time.

Have a great week!

Wangs vs the World is going to take me a while. Two weeks of reading and I'm only at page 40.

Erin @ Quixotic Magpie

Uck hope you feel better soon! I am getting my behind kicked by allergies, so I feel your pain.

Wrong Side of the Paw looks cute! :)



Comment #20: Monday, September 11, 2017 at 21:17:31

Wrong Side of the Paw is the sixth in the series. I hope there will be more.

Laura @ Library of Clean Reads

I read a few Sophie Kinsella books when my kids were babies and they made me laugh. Just what I needed at the time. I haven't read Finding Audrey though. Enjoy your reading week!

Finding Audrey has teenaged kids and a Mum who is worried about too much screen time. I'm only about thirty pages in, but I'm enjoying it.

Sorry about the cold, I hope you feel better soon ( your daughter too).

We're on the mend — just down to stuffy noses.

I have Wrong Side of the Paw on my wishlist. It looks so good. Have a great week!

I'm about a third of the way with Wrong Side of the Paw. It's the sixth in the series and I've loved every single book.

Ugh, I hope you feel better soon.

I'm on the mend. Thanks.

The camera looks like a really good one. I hope you enjoy it. So many good titles. I have been eyeing the Spencer Quinn series. Wrong side of the Paw looks like fun. Happy Reading!



Comment #30: Tuesday, September 12, 2017 at 20:22:00

Pussreboots

The Spencer Quinn books are good for a weekend of reading. The Wrong Side of the Paw is number six in the series and I recommend all of them.

Oh no, back to school colds are no fun. It hasn't happened to us yet (knock on wood) but it's only been a week so I'm sure they will happen at some point. Enjoy your week!

Cleo Coyle writes fantastic cozy mysteries. I love that they are coffee themed! I haven't read them in awhile, but I keep meaning to reread them and get back into the series.

I hope you guys feel better soon, and thank you for stopping by my blog!



Comment #34: Monday, September 18, 2017 at 10:01:00

I am enjoying Coyle's books, though sometimes they get a little too obsessive with coffee. I'm listening to the audio books usually when I do house hold chores.

We're over our colds. Thanks for asking.
