It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (December 24): 12/24/18

It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
Hosted by Kathryn of Book Date.

Here it is Christmas eve. We're having a quiet time at home, just the four of us and our cats. My daughter and I are making lasagna Napoli for dinner. Dessert will be mint ice cream and sprinkles.

I didn't do any painting this past week. With it being the last week of school I was busy running last minute errands before the holidays. Plus my kids' schedules were more erratic which meant less time for painting.

What I read:

  • The Third Mushroom by Jennifer L. Holm; personal collection
  • Clobbered by Camembert by Avery Aames; library book
  • Inkling by Kenneth Oppel and Sydney Smith (illustrations); personal collection
  • Dragons in a Bag by Zetta Elliott; personal collection

What I'm reading:

  • Runaways, Volume 2: Best Friends Forever by Rainbow Rowell and Kris Anka (Illustrator)
  • My Life as a Diamond by Jenny Manzer; publisher copy
  • Al Capone Does My Homework by Gennifer Choldenko; library book
  • Crime and Poetry by Amanda Flower; personal collection

Up Soon:

  • P.S. I miss you by Jen Petro-Roy; personal collection
  • Stay Sweet by Siobhan Vivian; personal collection
  • The Boy from Tomorrow by Camille DeAngelis; personal collection
  • Ivy Aberdeen's letter to the world by Ashley Herring Blake; library book

Nice assortment of books. My Christmas Eve will be quiet too. My brother works at Target from 2 - 10. Come see my week here. Happy holidays and happy reading!
