It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (May 06): 05/06/19
Last week my husband was traveling for work. He arrived home yesterday afternoon. Rather, we picked him up at his local office as it's close to the airport. Our teens have busy schedules and those schedules conflicted with picking him up directly from the airport.
Last week I finished Mini Nature 3 which features a honey bee on a cornflower. I'm really please with how it turned out. Now I am working on Mini Nature 4 which features a honey bee and a plum flower.
What I read:
No picture books last week. All of these books were about three hundred pages long. I had hoped to also finish The Train to Impossible Places this week. I'm about half way through it and will finish it probably tomorrow night.
What I'm reading:
Besides the four listed here, I also have an interlibrary loan book that I need to finish this week. It's due on the 11th. The book is The Barrakee Mystery by Arthur W. Upfield (1920). I'm fifty pages into it.
Posts and reviews:
I posted seven reviews, four posts, and one essay.

I’m curious about The Guilty Plea just because of the cover.
Have a great reading week, Murder Lo Mein sounds fun.

The Guilty Plea is the second of the Detective Greene mysteries by Robert Rotenberg. They're set in Toronto. I'll have it reviewed in early June.

Charms and Chocolate Chips is the third in the Magical Bakery mystery series. Chocolate chips weren't a big feature of this book, despite the title. It was, however, a good read.

I love a good cozy mystery and it looks like you read a few
Comment #6: Tuesday, May 07, 2019 at 20:11:00
I'm reading more mysteries right now to have some to review in upcoming weeks. Plus, they're fun.

Charms and Chocolate Chips looks good. Your paintings are fantastic, especially the first one.
Comment #8: Tuesday, May 07, 2019 at 20:13:00
It was. It was my favorite so far of the three I've read. The first painting is finished. The second one I'm still working on.

I still haven't managed to get to the public library for some picture books. Maybe I'll have a chance this week. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

I hope you get a chance but I'll understand if you don't.
Comment #13: Monday, May 06, 2019 at 22:28:32
I like the bee pic! And I hope You Owe Me A Murder is good!
Comment #14: Tuesday, May 07, 2019 at 20:28:00
Thanks. I had fun painting it. I'll review You Owe Me a Murder shortly after I read it.

My daughter loves the Heartwood Hotel books. Murder Lo Mein was also good.
Comment #16: Tuesday, May 07, 2019 at 20:31:00
My niece is a fan of her previous series. Once I finished them, I moved onto the Haartwood Hotel series. I'm looking forward to reading Murder Lo Mein.
