It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (January 07): 01/07/19
The decorations are down. Bruce the Spruce is now transplanted into a larger pot. He's now in our backyard. This weekend a huge storm rolled in with lots of wind and rain. The rain we need. The wind brought some power outages. We lost our power today for about two hours.
School starts tomorrow for my kids. That means I can get back to painting. And that means posting updates on future Mondays.

Almost back to the ordinary, which has a magic all of its own. Happy New Year.
Comment #2: Tuesday, January 08, 2019 at 19:51:00
It is nice to be falling into the regular routine.
Comment #3: Monday, January 07, 2019 at 01:52:21
I planted one of my live trees last year. Not something I usually do, but happy that I did. One of my girls is back and the other one starts school on Tuesday--peace and quiet again.
Hope you have a fabulous week. Like the looks of Stay Sweet, The Boy from Tomorrow, and The Secrets of Winterhouse.

We planted last year's tree on our hill. She's grown about two feet in the last year. Our current tree should only get eight feet tall which means he'll fit into the house for years to come.
Stay Sweet is delightful. The Boy from Tomorrow is similar to Coraline by Neil Gaiman and The Swallow by Charis Cotter, but with a time travel twist.

Body on Baker Street looks tempting. I'm in the mood for a cozy. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.
Comment #6: Tuesday, January 08, 2019 at 19:58:00
I hope to start The Body on Baker Street soon.

We had a huge wind storm, too, though we didn't lose power. I always feel good and sort of refreshed for the new year once all the decorations are down and put away.
As always, you've read A LOT! It's fun to see that a Nancy Drew book was one of your reads. I loved her as a kid.
Comment #8: Tuesday, January 08, 2019 at 20:01:00
I only started reading Nancy Drew as an adult. I like the character dynamics in the Diaries series.
Comment #9: Monday, January 07, 2019 at 09:59:52
My son starts school tomorrow too. Looks like you're reading some good books. Both The Boy from Tomorrow and the Oddling Prince caught my eye. Visiting your blog makes me want to read more middle-grade books!
Comment #10: Tuesday, January 08, 2019 at 20:05:00
The Boy From Tomorrow is good so far. I'm about 50 pages in. You should read middle grade books if you want. I like them because they tend to only run about 200 to 300 pages.
Comment #11: Monday, January, 7, 2019 at 10:15:51
Stay Sweet was fun and I liked Night Vale on audio. I haven't read Nancy Drew since I was a young girl.
Comment #12: Tuesday, January 08, 2019 at 20:08:00
Stay Sweet was delightful. I've only read Nancy Drew as an adult.
Comment #13: Monday, January 07, 2019 at 12:51:17
>The Nancy Springer book looks good. I want to read that one. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Comment #14: Tuesday, January 08, 2019 at 20:10:00
I've only read the first chapter of the Oddling Prince. I'm not sure where it is going yet.
Comment #15: Monday, January 07, 2019 at 14:50:10
I like that they keep Nancy Drew going in various capacities with new series or whatnot.
Comment #16: Tuesday, January 08, 2019 at 20:10:00
I like this modern take on Nancy Drew.
Comment #17: Monday, January 07, 2019 at 21:06:17
It's always kind of sad when the holidays are over and everything goes back to normal. OTOH, it's also a good thing. I read one of the Vicki Delaney books and enjoyed it. I have to get back to that series. Have a great week!
Comment #18: Tuesday, January 08, 2019 at 20:18:00
December was so chaotic with my husband being sick that I barely did any decorating. The decorations weren't really up long enough for me to miss them being up.
Comment #19: Monday, January 07, 2019 at 21:33:58
What a great start to your new year! So many wonderful titles!
Happy New Year!
Comment #20: Tuesday, January 08, 2019 at 20:22:00
It's been a good year so far for reading.
Comment #21: Tuesday, January 08, 2019 at 08:30:10
I'm seeing The Similars around a lot lately... your year is off to a good start!
Comment #22: Tuesday, January 08, 2019 at 20:22:00
The Similars was a fun read. I'll be reviewing it this Saturday.
Comment #23: Tuesday, January 08, 2019 at 19:42:27
Great collection of books! I have fond memories of reading Nancy Drew mysteries when I was young, but my daughter never got into them. Thanks for visiting my bookshelf update!
Comment #24: Tuesday, January 08, 2019 at 20:26:00
I didn't read Nancy Drew until I was an adult. My daughter isn't into them either.
Comment #25: Tuesday, January 08, 2019 at 20:04:48
Ha, I love that you named your spruce, Bruce. Cute! :) We have an apple tree that we named Eve. Lol.
I love the cover of Secrets of Winterhouse. :) Enjoy your week and painting!
Comment #26: Tuesday, January 08, 2019 at 20:28:48
The Secrets of Winterhouse is the sequel to Winterhouse. I suggest you start there if you're interested in reading the series.
