It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (August 20): 08/20/18
Last week was a crap week for reading. We all caught the summer flu that is going around. While none of us got really sick, we were all sick enough to not want to do much. I barely got any reading done.
This weekend, though, was fun. My in laws spent the weekend with us to celebrate my son's birthday. But with guests over, again, no time for reading!

The Poisoned House looks interesting. Glad yall aren't near the fires. So scary!
Comment #2: Monday, August 20, 2018 at 21:52:00
The Poison House is a page turner of a mystery. It's got a good Gothic feel to it. Right now the smoke is blowing north but if the winds shift we'll be getting it again. Poor Seattle and Vancouver right now!

I see several books that appeal to me. I've enjoyed Cleo Coyle's books.
Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

Now that I'm caught up with the Book Town mysteries, I'm working through the Coffeehouse ones on audio. I listen to them while doing chores.
Comment #5: Monday August, 20, 2018 at 11:46:14
Being sick wrecks a lot of plans. I'm glad you're all feeling better. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Comment #6: Monday, August 20, 2018 at 21:58:00
Thankfully none of us got scary sick. We were just feverish and sluggish.
Comment #7: Monday, August 20, 2018 at 12:54:12
I've always been meaning to read the Shopaholic series, I love the covers!
Comment #8: Monday, August 20, 2018 at 22:00:00
It's a fun series. Listen to them as audios if you can. The narrator does an excellent job.
Comment #9: Monday, August 20, 2018 at 18:13:12
Oh no, I am so sorry to hear that you guys were sick! My little guy was sick last week too. :( Hopefully everyone has recovered.
The Care and Feeding of a Pet Black Hole looks awesome. Lol. Have a great week!
Comment #10: Monday, August 20, 2018 at 22:01:00
It was thankfully a mild (but still annoying) flu. The Care and Feeding of a Pet Black Hole is as awesome as it looks.
Comment #11: Monday, August 20, 2018 at 19:40:30
I hope you feel better soon and get lots of reading done. Have a great week!
Comment #12: Monday, August 20, 2018 at 22:05:00
We're all fine. It was thankfully a short and mild flu.
Comment #13: Monday, August 20, 2018 at 20:53:46
Looks like you still got a good bit accomplished! Hope everyone is feeling better!
Comment #14: Monday, August 20, 2018 at 22:06:00
We're all fine. The only downside is my son now has more summer homework to finish up in this last week than he was hoping to have by now.
Comment #15: Monday, August 20, 2018 at 21:54:31
Hope you get more reading time this week! Nice mix of books- love the look of Espresso Shot! :)
Comment #16: Monday, August 20, 2018 at 22:08:00
I finished You Go First today. I hope that is a good sign for the rest of thee week's reading.
Comment #17: Monday, August 20, 2018 at 22:02:32
Sarah - Your week is always so packed. I really don't know how you do it! I've found some great book ideas for my 5-year old granddaughter from you. Thanks!
Comment #18: Monday, August 20, 2018 at 22:08:00
Last week we hardly did anything but stay in bed and go to school for mantatory paper pickup and drop off times.
Comment #19: Friday, August 17, 2018 at 11:30:34
When we visited NC one year, the smoke from the recent fires was noticeable. Glad you're not in danger.
Yellow Brick War is on my list to read. The Poisoned House sounds really good too. Hope you have a nice week. Thanks for visiting my blog.

The jet stream is taking the smoke so far from here. I feel sorry for Vancouver which seems forever blanketed under smoke.
Comment #21: Monday, August 13, 2018 at 23:06:23
We've had summers with lots of smoke and it gets old fast. I hope things clear up for you and everyone else very soon.
Comment #22: Thursday, August 23, 2018 at 21:47:00
We had more smoke today but we've had clear days too.
Comment #23: Tuesday, August 21, 2018 at 09:57:49
Thank you for stopping by my blog! Looks like you got a ton of reviews done. I'm sorry to hear you all were sick. I hope all have recovered well.
Comment #24: Thursday, August 23, 2018 at 21:53:00
Thank you for your concern. We're all recovered. I managed to post reviews because I had already written them.
Comment #25: Tuesday, August 21, 2018 at 10:08:06
I'm glad you are all feeling better now. I see many good books on your list. Have a great week!
Comment #26: Thursday, August 23, 2018 at 21:44:00
I am hoping to get to all these good books soon. I seem to be having another slow week.
Comment #27: Tuesday, August 21, 2018 at 10:10:12
You have read or reviewed so many interesting books, especially so many children’s books. You said it wasn’t a good week, but you still did great, I think!
Comment #28: Thursday, August 23, 2018 at 22:04:00
I write my reviews ahead of time so even if I can't write a review or finish a book, I have something as backup. I'm glad you enjoyed the children's book reviews.
Comment #29: Tuesday, August 21, 2018 at 11:49:44
I really like the Mary Russell series by Laurie R. King. I need to read more of those soon.
Comment #30: Thursday, August 23, 2018 at 22:20:00
Island of the Mad started off so strong and then it lost me in the last third or so. I will address that when I get the review written and posted.
Comment #31: Wednesday, August 22, 2018 at 21:33:18
I hope you don't have any smoke/respiratory damage. You always have so many interesting books. The ones that really catch my eye are You Go First. The Book Woman and The Lost Books.
Have a good week/Happy Reading!
Comment #32: Thursday, August 23, 2018 at 22:23:00
All of those are good, quick and fun reads.
