It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (July 22): 07/22/19

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

This was a quiet week. My daughter was at art camp. On Friday my car had to go into the shop. It might have picked up some damage from the trip to Bodie, although not the suspension like we thought. We'll find out late Monday what the repairs will cost.

Meanwhile, this week is my week to teach the birds and dinosaurs art camp. It's going to be a small class. Easier for me but not good for the gallery.

What I read:

  • Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey; personal collection
  • Trace by Pat Cummings; personal collection; research
  • Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli; personal collection (audio)
  • Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng; personal collection
  • The Book Supremacy by Kate Carlisle; personal collection

What I'm reading:

  • Emily of New Moon by L.M. Montgomery; personal collection (re-read)
  • Genesis Begins Again by Alicia D. Williams; personal collection
  • Dread Pirate Fleur and the Ruby Heart by Sara Starbuck; personal collection
  • Full Steam Ahead, Felix by Kate Moore; personal collection

Up Soon:

  • The Future is Blue by Catherynne M. Valente; personal collection
  • Gideon Falls, Volume 2: Original Sins by Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino; personal collection
  • Sunny Side Up by Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm; personal collection
  • Storm of Locusts by Rebecca Roanhorse; personal collection

So many great looking books on your list. I hope you enjoy them. Have fun at camp!

Comment #2: Tuesday, July 22, 2019 at 19:47:00


Thanks. Camp is keeping me busy.

Hope your art class goes well.

Comment #4: Tuesday, July 22, 2019 at 19:49:00


Thank you. We've finished two days and we're having fun.

Nice looking books. We have a car at the garage for repairs now too. Of course, we still each have a car here at home. Bill's winter car and summer car mean we're seldom with nothing to drive. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

Comment #6: Tuesday, July 22, 2019 at 19:51:00


Fingers crossed: tomorrow the car will be finished. I've been driving my husband's car and he has the rental. I think we're both ready to get back into our own cars.

Fingers crossed that you got good news today!

I need to read more by L.M. Montgomery. Anne of Green Gables was my first book of the year this year, and it was also my first time reading it. I loved it! I need to read more. :)

Comment #8: Tuesday, July 22, 2019 at 19:53:00


Hopefully tomorrow my car will be ready. The news is that the repairs are expensive but not as expensive as they could have been. We should be getting the car back tomorrow.

Emily of New Moon was the first L M Montgomery I ever read. I remember at the time being blown away with it. Now as an adult, it's not as magical but I am still enjoying it.

Comment #9: Monday, July 22, 2019 at 19:46:57


Art camp sounds real fun. I hope your car socts aren't too high. Dinosaurs rock.

Comment #10: Tuesday, July 22, 2019 at 19:57:00


Art camp is going well. The car repairs are expensive but we have the money set aside.

Leah on the Offbeat has been on my TBR for the longest time! The Future is Blue also looks interesting.

Comment #12: Tuesday, July 22, 2019 at 20:01:00


I listened to the audiobook of Leah on the Offbeat. It was my book while painting for the last couple of months. It was a fun read/listen.

Comment #13: Monday, July 22, 2019 at 20:34:38


All those books look good! Have a great week!

Comment #14: Tuesday, July 22, 2019 at 20:03:00


Thanks. It was a good week of reading. This week will be good but with fewer books finished.

Comment #15: Monday, July 22, 2019 at 23:02:30


Good luck with art camp! Leviathan Wakes reminds me that The Expanse is coming back on soon- I haven't read the books though.

Comment #16: Tuesday, July 22, 2019 at 20:05:00


You know, until you mentioned it, I hadn't heard of The Expanse. I don't watch much TV. I don't have cable and I'm not an Amazon customer. But I see it's available on iTunes, so I have the first season now to watch.
