It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (July 30): 07/30/18
Last week my daughter had her book camp where she learned some basics of book binding, tried her hand at some illustration techniques, and had a ton of fun making zines. They also worked as a group to paint a mural.
Also last week the new laptop my husband ordered came in, so I've been having fun getting it set up. Actually the initial set up was a breeze compared to earlier models. But there are still the passwords and whatnot. But I think everything is now the way I need and want it to be.
Then today I had my day planned around doing chores and gardening and maybe doing some reading. Instead, my ten minute errand to the library ended up being a four hour quest to jumpstart my car and then buy a replacement battery on a Sunday. Thankfully we got it all done and got the last repair slot at our local Sears.

You read so much this week. And you finished The Scroll of Kings!
Happy reading in the coming week.
Comment #2: Monday, July 30, 2018 at 19:27:00
I hope there is a sequel to The Scroll of Kings.

Book Camp sounds like fun...the library errand ending with car troubles, not so good.
Your books look interesting. Enjoy! Thanks for visiting my blog.

The library errand began with car trouble. But in between getting the car jumped and getting a new battery I did also get to the library.
Comment #5: Monday, July 30, 2018 at 10:05:46
The Doldrums is a lot of fun.
Comment #6: Monday, July 30, 2018 at 19:30:00
They're a cute pair of books.
Comment #7: Monday, July 30, 2018 at 10:55:23
Enjoy your new laptop and books!

I'm interested to see what you think of the Dorothy Must Die series! Have a great week!
Comment #10: Monday, July 30, 2018 at 19:32:00
I'm kind of on the fence with the series but I own the entire thing.
Comment #11: Monday, July 30, 2018 at 11:34:08
Sorry you had car trouble. Why do these things always happen on a Sunday? Nice assortment of books too. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Comment #12: Monday, July 30, 2018 at 20:20:00
Any other Sunday would have been ok but this week my husband's on call and I had things I had to do today and tomorrow that couldn't be rescheduled. I'm grateful that we were able to get the battery replaced.
Comment #13: Monday, July 30, 2018 at 15:21:59
The Avery Aames' series is another I need to read and have on my TBR somewhere. It looks looks like a good one.
Have a great week!
Comment #14: Monday, July 30, 2018 at 20:23:00
It's a cute series. I liked the second book more than the first.
Comment #15: Monday, July 30, 2018 at 15:53:01
Ugh. I'm so sorry to hear about your battery issues on Sunday. NO FUN! I thoroughly enjoyed Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus and my daughter immediately read it after me. But I enjoyed Bowling's latest book (24 Hours in Nowhere due to be released in September) even MORE!! I'll have to think back to the storyline in regards to your thoughts about the time period she selected. I assume it has to do with Bowling's experience growing up during that time of when she came across that themed park in Arizona (in her real life), but I'm not absolutely certain. Wish I could openly discuss more without risking spoilers. But nope. LOL I'll look forward to hearing your thoughts on You Go First. I read it a few months ago, but am sad to say chunks of the story line are already disappearing from my memory. I guess that's not the best sign (for the book OR for my memory). It looks like Questions Asked and Poisoned Pages were incredible reads this past week. I'm waiting for Questions Asked, but I need to make sure I have Poisoned Pages on why list. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful reading week, Sarah!

I had no idea that Dusti Bowling had a new book out so soon. Thanks for the heads up. Questions Asked and Poisoned Pages were two excellent books. I hope you like them.

The Spook in the Stacks looks good. Book camp sounds like a lot of fun. See what I read this month at Girl Who Reads
Comment #18: Monday, July 30, 2018 at 20:29:00
I think it will be. I have one more library book to finish before I can sink my teeth into it.
Comment #19: Monday, July 30, 2018 at 22:15:39
Cute mural. Sorry about the car trouble. I’m glad it got fixed, though. I hope you enjoy all your books. Have a great week!
Comment #20: Monday, July 30, 2018 at 20:30:00
Thank you. The kids were very proud of their work on it. The car trouble ended up being a pretty easy fix and would have been easier if we knew where our jumper cables were. We ended up getting a new set.
Comment #21: Monday, July 30, 2018 at 22:41:05
Ugh, sorry to hear about the car. That can be frustrating.
Lost and Fondue looks like a fun cozy!
Comment #22: Monday, July 30, 2018 at 20:34:00
Lost and Fondue was good. It left me wanting to eat cheese, though.
Comment #23: Monday, July 30, 2018 at 23:29:57
Book camp sounds fun. I'd like to learn a little about binding snd the entire creating a book process. Great mural, too!
Comment #24: Monday, July 30, 2018 at 20:35:00
It was a fun camp for my daughter.
Comment #25: Tuesday, July 31, 2018 at 06:39:50
Your daughter's camp sounds wonderful. Wish there was more for adults with childcare services 😂
Isn't it terrible when things arise and your hoping for a day just for you! I feel my hours off from being a Mum I'm too busy running errands for my household 😣
Comment #26: Sunday, August 05, 2018 at 21:08:00
The art gallery that runs the camps also does art events for adults. I don't know if they offer daycare at the same time.
Comment #27: Tuesday, July 31, 2018 at 10:19:49
Nice selection of books this week. Sorry about your battery troubles.
Comment #28: Sunday, August 05, 2018 at 21:11:00
The batter issue was frustrating for an afternoon. The books ended up being pretty good this week.
Comment #29: Tuesday, July 31, 2018 at 19:28:32
Wow, I want to go to book camp!! Sounds like so much fun!
Great books for you lately - I &heart; Nancy Drew - need to revisit her books one day.
And I have You Go First on audio - looking forward to it.
Enjoy your books this week!
Comment #30: Sunday, August 05, 2018 at 21:15:00
I hope to start You Go First this week.
Comment #31: Wednesday, August 01, 2018 at 21:13:34
Book camp? That sounds awesome. I love that mural.
Comment #32: Sunday, August 05, 2018 at 21:21:00
She had a fun time. She has one more camp at the gallery coming up in a week.
Comment #33: Thursday, August 02, 2018 at 09:33:52
So many interesting books on your shelf. Insignificant Events in the Life of a Cactus? Love the title. And You Go First. Thanks for sharing.

The title makes in context. It's worth a read. I hope to start You Go First this week.

How fun for the kiddo. And yay for the laptop! Fun to get a fresh start sometimes.

The laptop has been lovely.
