Down Among the Sticks and Bones was my favourite read last year. And Welcome to Night Vale is great. Have a great week!

I am enjoying the series very much. I plan to read the next one soon. I have a couple library books that are taking precedence before Mightvale.

Ah that last week of school, always so busy but then hopefully comes some relaxation!

It will and it won't. My daughter has two summer jobs (one a day camp junior counselor and the other a gardening job across the street). Later in the summer she'll have regular camp and we have a road trip coming up.

Good luck with the end of year events. I bet you still find time to read a lot.

I plan to read some shorter fiction this week.

Last Thursday was the last day of school for my girls. Today starts freedom and lots of reading! This week I'm reading a library book:

The school year starts later and so takes longer to end.

I'm adding The Alcatraz Escape to my wishlist. I liked the first two in the series. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

It's a fun read. You'll enjoy it.

I keep noticing Bad Neighbors....enjoy all of your books, and I'll check out some of those reviews.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Bad Neighbors is fun; it's the sequel to Bad Housekeeping.

Looks like you have had a productive week.



Comment #16: Monday, June 04, 2018 at 22:08:00

Pussreboots

It was good but I'm falling behind in what I had planned to read.

Erin @ Quixotic Magpie

I just added The Penderwicks to my summer reading list. I think I am going to revist some younger books, middle grade, etc. :) Have a great week!

I'm almost finished with the audiobook of the first Penderwicks and it's very good. I plan to get a copy of the second book, hopefully also as an audio.

Sound busy! I want to read (and listen to more of) Night Vale!

I'm at the point in the podcast where you're expected to read the book. It's not a 100% necessary but it does all tie together.

Congrats on your pictures! And yeah, books! Sounds like a great week! Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!
