It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (February 05): 02/05/18
It's gotten warmer, right after we got our new fireplace insert installed. We also had to have the plumber by because the house had a clog somewhere and water was flooding out of the garage sink. Thankfully I was able to move the boxes in time and nothing got ruined.

I heard so many good things about March by John Lewis. I hope you enjoy Book 2.
Comment #2: Monday, February 05, 2018 at 22:17:00
Volume one was excellent. I am looking forward to finishing the trilogy.

Nice week. I have Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda on my Kindle but haven't managed to fit it onto my reading calendar yet. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Comment #4: Monday, February 05, 2018 at 22:18:00
Overall I enjoyed Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda but it had a few grammatical quirks that repeatedly took me out of the story. The only way you'll find time to read things not on your calendar is to put things on your calendar.

Glad you didn't have water damage! Murder Past due looks fun and I liked A Darkness Absolute that series is so good!
Comment #6: February 05, 2018 at 22:18:00
The garage sits on a hill so the water didn't have a chance to build up in there. The only water damage that would have happened would have been to the boxes we had foolishly left on the floor right in the obvious path of the water. I liked A Darkness Absolute enough to want to finish out the series but it didn't blow me away like some of her books have.

My daughter has a Hamster Princess story to read. I must get it out before we re-read all the Tom Gates books (again!)
Comment #8: Monday, February 05, 2018 at 22:25:00
You definitely need to read the Hamster Princess you have on hand. And then hopefully read the others in the series.

Bummer on the plumbing problem. You really got a lot of reading done.
Comment #10: Monday, February 05, 2018 at 22:26:00
The plumbing problem could have been a lot worse. As it was, it was annoying.
Comment #11: Monday, February 05, 2018 at 18:39:29
Isn't that how it always goes, you get get your furnace/fireplace upgraded to counteract the cold and then it warms up.
I haven't read any of the Oz books in forever, I should probably reread them at some point. Have a great week.
Comment #12: Monday, February 05, 2018 at 22:31:00
Our house doesn't have a furnace, so the new fireplace insert we had installed is our main heat source for the front half of the the house. The bedrooms and den have space heaters. At least we'll be ready for winter when it rolls around again.
I am hoping to re-read / read the entire Oz series, including the ones by Ruth Thomson.

I’m glad nothing got ruined in the flood. I hope you enjoy your books. I really need to read March. It has won so many awards.
Comment #14: Monday, February 05, 2018 at 22:31:00
It was a blockage and an overflow. Thankfully not a burst water pipe so the amount of water was limited. I'm just glad I got the papers out of the way. They shouldn't have been there in the first place. I hope you do find time to read March

I'm curious about the Nancy Drew Diaries. Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.
Comment #16: Monday, February 05, 2018 at 22:39:00
The Nancy Drew Diaries are about 2/3 the length of the originals. They're set in modern times and involve Nancy solving cases or having adventures with her friends.

Enjoy your books and have a great week!

Upside Down Magic looks good because there is a cat on the cover :)
Comment #20: Monday, February 05, 2018 at 22:44:00
That's Nory in her kitten form.
Comment #21: Monday, February 05, 2018 at 21:50:13
I loved the Simon book. I am looking forward to the movie. American Street looks interesting. Happy Reading!
Comment #22: Monday, February 05, 2018 at 22:46:00
I liked Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda but I don't have immediate plans to see the movie. American Street is very good so far.
Comment #23: Tuesday, February 06, 2018 at 01:28:06
Very heavy reading list. Enjoy them all.
Comment #24: Monday, February 05, 2018 at 22:48:00
It's not so bad.
Comment #25: Tuesday, February 06, 2018 at 03:06:03
I am hoping to read Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda soon. Need to read it before the film is out! Have a good week :)
Comment #26: Thursday, February 08, 2018 at 18:09:00
I read Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda because there's a follow up book coming out soon. I'm not planning to see the movie at this time — maybe later.
Comment #27: Tuesday, February, 6, 2018 at 09:31:53
Wow, you had a great reading month! I hope that your plumbing issue is an easy one and that you're dried out now!
Comment #28: Thursday, February 08, 2018 at 18:15:00
I read twenty-nine books last month. That's actually a little less than what I've managed in previous Januaries. The plumbing issue was an easy (for the plumber) fix. It took them about an hour.
Comment #29: Tuesday, February 06, 2018 at 20:21:05
I always love coming to your blog and seeing the array of pretty covers. It's like a book garden. Lol. Waiting for Unicorns looks good. :) And I love that Kelley Armstrong series!
Comment #30: Thursday, February 08, 2018 at 18:20:00
I think I would have liked Waiting for Unicorns more if I hadn't read so many books with a similar set up in such a short amount of time.
Comment #31: Tuesday, February 06, 2018 at 21:00:01
So glad there was no water damage. Have a great week.
Comment #32: Thursday, February 08, 2018 at 18:21:00
Me too! Thanks. And same to you.
Comment #33: Tuesday, February 06, 2018 at 23:53:30
American Street was one of my top reads of last year! I hope you enjoy it!
Comment #34: Thursday, February 08, 2018 at 18:23:00
I just finished American Street and need to think about it a while before I post a review. It was definitely a page turner.
