It’s Monday! What are you Reading?

It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Yikes! Where have I been? Distracted. That’s where. I have been knitting, too. I guess the cooler temps have inspired me to pick up my long lost hobby.

I am currently reading:

The Dead Kid Detective Agency by Evan Munday 1222 by Anne Holt Virals by Kathy Reichs

The Dead Kid Detective Agency by Evan Munday – I am technically still reading this, but I am afraid it may be a quitter. Unfortunately, it is just not compelling me to pick it up.

1222 by Anne Holt – This is a Galley Grab read of a new-to-me author and series.

Virals by Kathy Reichs – I am late to this young adult series. I love the science kid-centric plot. I would definitely like to hang out with these kids! I am listening to the audiobook version.

During the past month I finished reading:

The Cabinet of Curiosities by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child Light from a Distant Star by Mary McGarry Morris

The Cabinet of Curiosities (Pendergast #3) by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child – This is my first venture into the world of FBI Agent Pendergast. I am so glad I finally dove into this series. This was a lengthy book, but the length was not unwarranted. The plot included a natural history museum, archives, research, a couple of serial killers, and even some science fiction. I can’t wait to get my hands on another in the series. I have already put #4 on hold at the library. (5 out of 5 stars)

Light from a Distant Star by Mary McGarry Morris – I finally decided to quit this book. First, a dog attacked a child and was killed violently. Then, there are some jokes made about revenge based around poisoning dogs. That did it. I decided I was done. Light from a Distant Star was a win from Read It Forward. Unfortunately, I just couldn’t finish it.


SnugglesDuring the past month, I took in and re-homed yet another dog. This time I found his owner thanks to a microchip, but the family could no longer properly care for him. Fortunately, I found the little guy a home. He was pretty adorable!

There have been five or six loose dogs in our neighborhood over the past two months. I think it is time to start a campaign in the ‘hood to encourage folks to keep dogs on leash and inside securely fenced yards… and possibly even to discourage dumping dogs. It’s nuts!
