I am linking up to the Sunday Post hosted by Kim of Caffeinated Book Reviewer and The Sunday Salon (TSS) hosted by Deb Nance of Readerbuzz where participants recap our week, talk about what we are reading, share any new books that have come our way, and whatever else we want to talk about. I also linking It's Monday! What Are you Reading? hosted by Kathryn of Book Date where readers talk about what they have been, are and will be reading.
I am linking up Stacking the Shelves hosted by Marlene of Reading Reality a meme in which participants share what new books came their way recently.
Summer is finally coming to an end and soon I will be craving pumpkin scones and peppermint hot chocolate. Okay, so maybe I am already. Do you have a favorite autumn snack?
I hurt my knee doing the most basic, normal activity--sitting down--earlier in the week. I think my knee cap popped out a little before popping back in place. It hasn't been completely right since.
Mouse started her 7th year of Girl Scouts this year with a little Bridging Ceremony this past Tuesday. She's moved up to the next level. Her troop did some fun things together this summer and are all looking forward to the year ahead.
My reading may have slowed down a bit this past week but there was also more work. A lot more work. Mouse has been reading up a storm. She is at a sleepover tonight with a friend and took four books. You never know if you want to stay up all night reading, after all. She takes after me that way--never go anywhere without a book (or several)!
Early in the week I finished reading Amari and the Night Brothers, the first in B.B. Alston's middle grade Supernatural Investigations series. Amari is a great character and I love her roommate. Amari is determined to find her missing brother even if it means sticking with a camp to the end where almost everyone thinks her magic is evil. I am looking forward to reading the next book. Hopefully soon.
I am in the middle of Mrs. Roosevelt's Confidante (Maggie Hope Mysteries #5) by Susan Elia MacNeal. It's been ages since I last visited with Maggie and friends but I am enjoying catching up with their lives and seeing them through their latest adventures.
I have not yet settled on the next book I will read. I was thinking maybe something of the nonfiction variety since I have been neglecting my nonfiction TBR so far this year. It turns out the books calling to me are anything but nonfiction right now though. Is it because autumn is fast approaching and I am still gravitating more toward the lighter reads? Probably a lot of both. I am not sure which of these I might read next, but they all sound so tempting. Or maybe I will choose something completely different . . .
