It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (December 31): 12/31/18
My in-laws are visiting for the new year. I'm taking the last day to play games, work on my photographs, and put together a puzzle. I'll start reading again on Wednesday.

Goodness. Hope everyone is well on the mend. The chicken paintings are great :)

Thanks. I find chickens fun to paint. I'll probably paint more in the future.

I read so many Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys books when I was a kid. Enjoy spending time with your family!
Comment #8: Tuesday, January 01, 2019 at 20:42:00
I read my mother's old Hardy Boys and my own collection of Trixie Belden mysteries. I didn't start reading Nancy Drew until adulthood.

Enjoy the last day of the year- and Happy New Year! I started watching season two of the Runaways show.
Comment #10: Tuesday, January 01, 2019 at 20:44:00
I wasn't aware there is a Runaways show. I had to look it up. I don't have a Hulu account which explains why I haven't heard of it.

Enjoy your visit. Reading can wait.
The Nancy Drew Diaries looks like so much fun. Love the cover on The Ghost Road.
Happy new year!

The Nancy Drew Diaries are a nice modernization of the series.
Comment #13: Monday, December 31, 2018 at 08:05:06
You have some great looking books on your list. I couldn't get into Nancy Drew as a kid - I liked the Bobbsey Twins. See what I read this month at Girl Who Reads

I also didn't read Nancy Drew as a child. In the 1950s-1970s the publishers edited the earlier series to make Nancy more wholesome to Babyboom readers, meaning they made her less of a feminist and less of a badass. Those were the versions that were available when I was a kid the 1970s-1980s so I didn't read them. I only started reading them as an adult when the original versions were re-released as special editions. The Diaries are a new, modern take on the characters that are quite good.

Happy New Year! Enjoy your First Book of the Year...and all subsequent ones. Thanks for visiting my blog.

My first book ended up being Fearless Mary: The True Adventures of Mary Fields, American Stagecoach Driver by Tami Charles. I was expecting it be the Nancy Drew Diaries I'm reading; that'll be my second book.
