Hello all, I know it’s just under a month since my last post. I spent a few of those weeks under the weather (allergies turned sinus/upper respiratory stuff). But I still have books and I’m here to share them.

So let’s take a look at what’s on my pile. (I’ve also added a few not pictured.)


What I'm reading 4-13-17 What I'm reading 4-13-17

First off,

I finished Carrie Fisher’s Shockaholic.  I enjoyed it. I need to get my hands on her other autobiographies.

I also finished Cavemice: Don’t Wake the Dinosaur! by Geronimo Stilton. (Cute book and series for kids, loved that certain words were colored and different sizes. Seems like it would be a great book for reading out loud.)

Next is Mr. Churchill’s Secretary by Susan Elia MacNeal, I didn’t finish it, but I saw it as a daily deal in my ebook alerts one day, so I purchased it and will come back to it some day.

Now on to everything else!

  1. Judgmental Maps by Trent Gillaspie (looked fun and not pictured)
  2. Wonder by R.J. Palacio (wanted to read for a while, finally borrowed it)
  3. The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories by Dr. Seuss (saw this returned at the library after Dr. Seuss’s birthday. I had never seen it before so I checked it out)
  4. A Silent Voice by Yoshitoki Oima (trying to be more diverse, one of the characters in this manga/graphic novel is deaf and bullied.)
  5. Nancy Drew: The Secret of the Old Clock by Carolyn Keene (Would you believe I’ve never read a Nancy Drew story? I’m fixing that).
  6. The Hating Game by Sally Thorne (It sounded interesting when I read the back cover)
  7. The Bad-Ass Librarians of Timbuktu by Joshua Hammer (Again sounded interesting)
  8. Echoes of Sherlock Holmes by Various (Had this one out for a while, still need to finish it)
  9. Guardians of the Galaxy by Brian Michael Bendis et. al. (Gearing up for the new movie to come out.)
  10. Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell (I started it, but I can’t get into it. Yet I keep hearing rave reviews for it. Does it get better? This one I’ll have to end up re-getting out because there are holds on it.)
  11. Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen
  12. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by John Tiffany & Jack Thorne idea by J.K Rowling (I know I need to purchase this because I have all the other Harry Potter books, but it was sitting there waiting to be shelved so it ended up coming home with me.)
  13. The Daily Show: Oral History (I’m not reading it yet, my parents are)
  14. A cookbook based on foods of the farmers market, its in the kitchen right now, I’ll get the name of it for my next post.
  15. Nimona by Noelle Stevenson
  16. Star Wars: Before the Awakening by Greg Rucka
  17. It Ain’t So Awful Falafel by Firoozeh Dumas

So that’s my pile. It keeps growing. I have a bunch of books due on Monday, but I’ll probably end up renewing most. I will get these read. I just need to stop taking more out.

That’s what I’m tackling right now. What are you reading?
