It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (July 15): 07/15/19
We're home again from our eight days on the road. We Tuesday through Thursday at Mammoth Lakes. On Wednesday we visited Bodie and Mono Lake. On Thursday we visited Devil's Postpile. Friday was an all day drive home, but we did get to see Yosemite as it was the shortcut home.
I ended up loving The Bride Test and read it in about two hours after our day at Bodie and Mono Lake. I'm eagerly awaiting the third book in the series.
What I read:
Readingwise, I took three physical books on the trip and finished two of them. Gideon Falls I didn't finish until we got home. I also one ebook, Heartwood Hotel 3: Better Together. While I said I wouldn't be reading library books, I didn't plan on us arriving in Mammoth Lakes before check-in. We ended up spending an hour and a half in the Mammoth Lakes public library and that's where I read The Bride Was a Boy.
What I'm reading:

Thanks. We had fun but it's good to be home.

It sounds like you had a wonderful trip. I enjoyed The Bride Test though not as much as Kiss Quotient. I am looking forward to Quan’s Story though.
Have a great reading week

I enjoyed The Bride Test as much as The Kiss Quotient. I'll be reviewing the book on Monday.

The Devil's Postpile. What a great name for a place. Glad you have a good trip!
Comment #8: Wednesday, July 17, 2019 at 13:24:00
It's just above Red Fern Valley south west of Mammoth Lakes. It's right on the border with Yosemite and once upon a time was part of Yosemite.

Looks like it was a fun trip. I've never been to that area. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

We had fun. It was the first time for my family to see Bodie and Devil's Postpile.
Comment #11: Monday, July 15, 2019 at 17:27:19
I still need to see Yosemite. I've never been out there!

You should go sometime.

Thank you. My new lens weighs a ton. I'm glad the photos turned out because it was sometimes a pain to lug around.

I remember visiting the devil's postpile years ago - such a neat place! Lots of interesting titles on your reading list. The Book Supremacy catches my eye.

Last time I was at Devil's Postpile was about thirty years ago with my parents and brother. I've just started The Book Supremacy.

Devil’s Postpile is new to me. It looks like a place that I’d like to visit.
We have been to Yosemite. We didn’t get to spend enough time there, though.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts about The Bride Test. I may have to think about that series.
Have a good week!

Devil's Postpile is accessible via bus from the Mammoth Lakes ski area. If you're ever here to see Yosemite, give yourself another day to see the postpile. I'll have The Bride Test reviewed on Monday.

Oh my that trip looks amazing and so interesting. I liked Little Fires Everywhere but I did listen to it on audio which really added to it.
Comment #20: Wednesday, July 17, 2019 at 13:41:00
My copy is a hardcover that's been sitting on my shelf since the book was first released.
Comment #21: Tuesday, July 16, 2019 at 00:24:39

I have The Bride Test on my wish list. Hope you enjoy all your books.
