Enjoy your books, and I hope the smoke is soon gone.

Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

The nearest fires are contained. THe air is still hazy but it's at least not raining ash.

I never heard of CatStronauts. That looks so cute. I have to look for it. I have some of those cozies too. They look good. Have a great week and a great trip.



Comment #4: Monday, July 02, 2018 at 21:27:00

This is the fourth book. The first one is Mission Moon.

Looks like some fun reading had and to be had. Hope that smoky air clears.



Comment #6: Monday, July 02, 2018 at 21:33:00

Pussreboots

It's a little better today. Hopefully it will continue to clear.

Nice variety of books again this week. I don't think I've read a picture book since I retired. I kind of miss them. Come see my week here. Happy reading!



Comment #8: Monday, July 02, 2018 at 21:37:00

Pussreboots

Pictures books are fun especially between longer, brain taxing books.



Comment #9: Monday, July 02, 2018 at 11:29:54

Cheryl Malandrinos

Those cozy mysteries look fun. I've always loved cozies. Hope you have a great week.



Comment #10: Monday, July 02, 2018 at 21:39:00

Pussreboots

I agree. Hopefully they are.

Erin@ Quixotic Magpie

Woohoo for road trips!! I am feeling the call to hit the road as well. Have a great trip!



Comment #12: Monday, July 02, 2018 at 21:41:00

Pussreboots

This is the first one where we're pretty much sticking in our own state after three years of much longer trips. But we'll get more time at each stop to play and explore.

Patty

Lovely lovely books...you have lots of interesting ones. Plus...you are so organized!



Comment #14: Monday, July 02, 2018 at 21:43:00

Pussreboots

It's a flexible organizational style.

Great reading week and month!

June was a better month for reading than May was.

Greg

Hope you have a great road trip! Sounds like fun. You've got a nice mix of books. Do you do a lot of reading on vacation? I try yo but it doesn't always work out lol.

Have a nice week. :)



Comment #20: Monday, July 02, 2018 at 21:45:00

Pussreboots

No. I barely read anything when on vacation. I am either driving, swimming, taking photographs, or processing my photographs.



Comment #21: Monday, July 02, 2018 at 21:42:00

MarthaE

You have several titles I want to check, especially The Wonder Engine and Trail of Lightning.

I'm off to look at a couple of your reviews.

Happy Reading!



Comment #22: Monday, July 02, 2018 at 21:53:00

Pussreboots

I see your comments in my queue. Thanks! Both the Wonder Engine and Trail of Lightning are excellent. For the former, you'll need to read Clockwork Boys first.

Oh, I miss the Canadian Book Challenge. I should do that again this year, although I haven't tried so far and it is already a month in. I think I'll head over and sign up.



Comment #24: Monday, July 02, 2018 at 21:58:00

Pussreboots

No! You're not a month behind — only two days behind. It starts on July 1st and runs until June 30th of the next year.

OMG I have to have to read the Chocolate Shop in Paris!!!! That sounds like heaven.



Comment #26: Monday, July 02, 2018 at 22:00:00

Pussreboots

The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris is very good but it's not as upbeat as Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe.



Comment #27: Tuesday, July 03, 2018 at 01:10:45

Jo

I was just reading the challenge and you can tell 1) I'm not Canadian and 2) it's been too long since I've done this. I forgot when Canada Day is! <> (And the host blog has changed too. Apparently everything has changed blogs in the time I took off of the blogosphere.)

Pussreboots

This is the second year at the new location. John at the Book Mind Set just needed a break so a different Canadian librarian has taken up the challenge.
