It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (July 01): 07/01/19

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

Normally I use this weekly pust to update everyone on my art. This week though I dno't have anything extra beyond what I've read and blogged out. It was the second week of my husband's business trip and I had a bunch of errands to run. I didn't work on my painting and I didn't make any new camp related art.

Next Monday I might skip posting all together. I will be halfway through a family road trip. It will also be my 24th wedding anniversary, and while I will be sitting poolside in a cabana, I might be having too much fun to post an update.

What I read:

I finished the last of my library books. For the rest of the summer I plan to focus on my own books. I'll reevaluate how things are going once the kids are back in school.

  • The Doughnut King by Jessie Janowitz; personal collection
  • Big Hero 6, Vol. 1 by Haruki Ueno; personal collection
  • The Four-Story Mistake by Elizabeth Enright; library book
  • Attack of the Ninja Frogs by Ursula Vernon; library book
  • Days of Wine and Roquefort by Avery Aames; library book
  • Cilla Lee-Jenkins: The Epic Story by Susan Tan; library book

What I'm reading:

  • Up for Air by Laurie Morrison; personal collection
  • Cat Got Your Cash by Julie Chase; personal collection
  • A Good Kind of Trouble by Lisa Moore Ramée; personal collection

You might not have completed any new art this week, but you certainly did quite a bit of reading. As usual, you have lots of books that look interesting. I'm especially drawn to Smack Dab and Good Kind of Trouble.

Enjoy your time on the road. Happy anniversary!

Smack Dab is very good. I'll be starting A Good Kind of Trouble tonight.

Have a great reading week, and a wonderful vacation!

You might not be posting next week because of your 24th wedding anniversary!?! Really? ;) Just kidding. Hope you all enjoy your road trip. My wife and I will be married 23 years in November.

I posted during the last two anniversary road trips. There's a good chance I will again.

Congrats on finishing up the library books and good luck working your way through your own. I need to do that, too!

It's nice to not have to worry about books coming due this month. I have too many other things going on.

I really want to read the Julie Chase series. It looks good and it has a cat on the cover :) I probably won't be posting next week either. Hope you have a great trip.

I'm only on the second book. I hope to finish it while on the road.

I'll also be in the pool for some of that time. Thanks!
