Currently Reading:

When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris, read by the author

Up Next:

I just checked out a few horror/spooky reads from the library, so I’ll read one of those next, probably The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff. I’ll need a break between Joe Hill and Stephen King; they are both perfectly capable of scaring me sleepless!

  2. I can't believe how many Banned Books I have around here. I am going to plan better and participate next time.

    Happy Reading!!

  3. I'm loving seeing familiar titles from my long-ago reading days, like East of Eden. It makes me want to reread everything, though…sigh.



  4. I've read one of the Captain Underpants books and still need to review it. I had a great week of reading. I'm reading longer books now with my kids. Please come see what we're reading.

  5. I am going to have to check out the Mercy Thompson series. I have been wanting to try it for awhile.

    I did like The Replacement. It is a good one to read at this time of year 🙂
