It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (August 06): 08/06/18
Busy week. Tuesday my son had three of his four wisdom teeth out. They hadn't even started growing in yet but they were blocking his molars and messing with his braces. He's fine and was on the mend really quickly. Friday my daughter got her hair colored for the first time. I should mention that I've never been to a beauty salon as an adult so this whole thing was a new experience for both of us. Fortunately I had a good book with me while I kept her company.
Readingwise, I had four finished by Thursday. The remaining three I finished this weekend. Three of them are comic books and they're pretty quick reading. The Ghostbusters trade was actually a re-read as I read the five comics digitally earlier in the year.

So many of these should be on my wish list. I saw The Spook in the Stacks while on vacation in NC. All the books you're reading now look interesting. Whathisface seems like a must read for me.
Hope you a have a nice week. Love her hair!

I was delighted to see that there was a fourth book in the series after a two year hiatus. I hope there are more mysteries forthcoming. Whathisface looked fun; I've enjoyed other books by the author.

Love the hair!
Comment #4: Monday, August 06, 2018 at 12:18:00
Thanks. She loves it too.

What? You've never been to a beauty salon as an adult? I think it's time to start treating yourself! As a teacher, the bright colored hair at first bothered me, but now I think it's pretty fun and seems to make the kids happy.

If I thought sitting in a chair for three hours getting my hair colored was a treat, I would do it. It personally sounds like torture. The last time I had my hair done was for my wedding — a French braid — and even that experience left me in tears.

What delightful colors! I am all for a look that is fun.
Enjoy your books; I'm curious about Murder Past Due.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
Comment #8: Monday, August 06, 2018 at 12:23:00
Murder Past Due is the third in the series but you can read it by itself; I did.
Comment #9: Monday, August 06, 2018 at 11:36:02
Tell your daughter she looks great. I love the hair color. Nice assortment of books too. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Comment #10: Monday, August 06, 2018 at 12:23:00
Will do. Thanks.
Comment #11: Monday, August 06, 2018 at 12:02:27
I'm so sorry for your son. I remember my wisdom teeth removal and it was no walk in the park (especially since they were impacted and I had to stay awake through the surgery since my insurance wouldn't cover anesthesia). Your daughter's hair looks LOVELY!! Such a beautiful mix of colors. I keep hearing good things about Be Prepared and I'm pretty sure a couple of my kids are going to love Secret Coders! I'm also adding Caleb and Kit to my TBR list. The story line sounds really good and WOW that cover is beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing ALL these titles this week, Sarah!

I'm glad they were taken out now before they were impacted. My daughter's hair only has one color but it has different shades based on how much color was used vs how much bleach. Be Prepared is adorable. Secret Codes is a fun series and makes me want to revisit logo.

Your books look fun as always. Your daughter looks delighted with her new locks! A lot of fun too I am sure.
Comment #14: Tuesday, August 07, 2018 at 13:44:00
It was a fun week of reading. My daughter is thrilled with her hair.
Comment #15: Monday, August 06, 2018 at 17:57:28
I really need to get around to reading Does My Head Look Big In This. I've had it on my shelves for so long
Comment #16: Tuesday, August 07, 2018 at 13:44:00
I hope you have the Australian edition. The Scholastic import did a terrible job. I ended up DNFing the import and tracking down a non-Americanized version.
Comment #17: Monday, August 06, 2018 at 19:10:17
Love her hair! So fun!
Comment #18: Tuesday, August 07, 2018 at 13:50:00
It turned out great.
Comment #19: Monday, August 06, 2018 at 19:45:22
I love your daughter’s hair, and I hope your son heals quickly. Enjoy your upcoming reads.
Comment #20: Tuesday, August 07, 2018 at 13:50:00
Thanks. She loves her hair too and my son seems to be back to normal.
Comment #21: August 06, 2018 at 21:04:54
You are always book busy! Your daughter is beautiful... blue hair and all. :-) I hope your son has recovered from the teeth being pulled - not much fun. Spook in the Stacks looks like a perfect October read. Murder Past Due sounds good too.
Enjoy your new reading!
Comment #22: Tuesday, August 07, 2018 at 13:56:00
Spook in the Stacks would in deed be a good October read. Murder Past Due is the third in the series but it stands alone just fine.
Comment #23: Monday, August 06, 2018 at 22:42:42
Love the hair colors! Glad the wisdom teeth went well. Have a great week of reading.
Comment #24: Tuesday, August 07, 2018 at 13:59:00
Thanks for both. Have a good week.
Comment #25: Monday, August 06, 2018 at 23:04:58
Wisdom teeth coming out, what fun ;) Sounds like a great book week, and lots of great books! Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!
Comment #26: Tuesday, August 07, 2018 at 13:59:00
You're welcome. Enjoy your books.
Comment #27: Monday, August 06, 2018 at 23:29:25
I haven't read any of your books. Enjoy!
Comment #28: Tuesday, August 07, 2018 at 14:04:00
Comment #29: Tuesday, August, 07, 2018 at 01:19:20
Glad your son's doing okay after his wisdom teeth. And looks like you got some fun new reads! Be Prepared and Caleb and Kit look fun.
Comment #30: Tuesday, August 07, 2018 at 14:06:00
Both books are delightful but very different from each other.
Comment #31: Tuesday, August 07, 2018 at 10:51:48
Whew a big week for both the kiddos. I had similar as your son when I was a kid. Not fun but glad he's on the mend and feeling better!
Comment #32: Tuesday, August 07, 2018 at 14:07:00
I had mine out in college. It was rough. He had a much easier time at it.
Comment #33: Thursday, August 09, 2018 at 12:58:35
Lots of good-looking books here I haven't spotted anywhere else :-) American Street and Yellow Brick War intrigue me
Comment #34: Sunday, August 12, 2018 at 19:20:00
American Street is delightful. Yellow Brick War, less so.
