It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (April 02): 04/02/18
I ended up sending back three library books unread. Two of them were ones I had picked out on a whim and didn't have time for. The third was on my wishlist but the first chapter and them some random skimming didn't make me want to keep reading.
I'm still plodding along with Tess of the Road. At the rate of I'm going, I'll have it finished sometime in August. I keep rescheduling when I'll post a review of it because I haven't read enough to have anything meaningful to say.
This week both kids are on Spring break. My son left in the wee hours of Saturday morning for a week long class trip to Europe. He's going with forty other honors Spanish students at his high school. They are visiting Milan, parts of souther France, and Barcelona.
My daughter meanwhile is making plans to hang with her friends. She's going to see Love, Simon and later have her BFFs over for lunch. When she's not socializing, she's gardening or animating or composing music. She keeps very busy.
Decided not to read:

You are going to be one busy reader. So many of these look great. Hope you enjoy your upcoming books.

The reality is I'll either turn some in unread or be slower with reading the books I own.

Wow! What a great group of books. A Just Clause would be right up my alley. Creator of Oz looks good too. Hope you have a wonderful week.
Comment #4: Tuesday, April 03, 2018 at 22:25:00
I recommend starting with the beginning, Murder is Binding. A lot has happened to lead up to A Just Clause.

Sorry to hear that Tess of the Road is going slowly! I remember debating whether to get that one. Hope you have a good spring break week. A Just Clause and Herding cats both look good. :)

Tess of the Road is slow in a good way. There's just a lot to the book and I havne't had enough time to sit and lose myself in it.

I enjoyed Tess of the Road but agree that it is wasn't a fast read. I think you will like it when you finish. Come see my week here. Have a great week!

I am enjoying Tess of the Road. It just needs more time and more attention than I've been able to give it. I'm slowly making my way through it. I'm at page 100 or so.

The trip to Europe sounds great; hope your son has a good time. *Gardening*?? We had another snowstorm! I liked The Bookshop at Water's End. Hope you finally finish Tess!

The last time it snowed here was 1976 or 1977. We are, though, expecting another three or four inches of rain. The Bookshop at Water's End wasn't for me. I read the first third and gave up. I will, though, finish Tess of the Road.

How are you liking Every Hidden Thing? I started it once, but gave up about a third of the way through. I'm wondering if I might like it better on audio.
Comment #12: Tuesday, April 03, 2018 at 22:35:00
Every Hidden Thing is better as an audio.

Interesting looking books! I enjoyed The Bookshop at Water's End.
Thanks for visiting my blog, and have a great week.
Comment #14: Tuesday, April 03, 2018 at 22:36:00
I hope they turn out to be as interesting as they look.
Comment #15: Tuesday, April 03, 2018 at 12:13:50
You have a great bunch of books, too! The Patti Callahan Henry book looks so good as does Book Clubbed!
Comment #16: Tuesday, April 03, 2018 at 22:43:00
The Bookshop at Water's End was not for me. I read about 100 pages and it didn't hold my interest. Book Clubbed is fun but you should start with Murder is Binding.

The library is so handy for trying out books. Hope the kiddos both have a great time during their vacations :)

The library is a wonderful way of trying new authors or genres. My son seems to be enjoying his trip but I'll hear all the details once he gets home. My daughter and I had fun kite flying today.
