  1. I'm finishing up Boo by Neil Smith (which I'm loving). I have no idea what I'll read next!

    1. I read that one too! I hope you continue liking it. I finally settled in with The Seven Good Years by Etgar Keret. I ate it up in a couple of hours :D

  2. Are You There God is an excellent book, though I remember being slightly confused because girls used special garters back then. I'm reading Gag by Melissa Unger. So far, it's an interesting read!

    1. In the newest version of the books they changed the belt scene to use a more modern adhesive. It's weird that it's been changed but it makes a lot more sense to kids if they read it now :D

  3. Choosing that next read is brutal...especially after a run of great books. And I must say, CARDBOARD sounds amazing!

    1. Oh you would loooove Cardboard. It's a little younger than most of the graphic novels we read but it's got a great story and the art is amazing :D

  4. Ah, reading limbo. What an exciting (and scary) place to be! :) Hope you pick a great one!

  5. What a great week... no wonder you're having trouble choosing the next book! I'm enjoying Elena Ferrante's Neopolitan Novels right now, and after reading James Salter's obituary in the NYTimes am considering trying one of his novels.

    1. I don't think I've tried Salter either but he's been on my giant mental tbr pile :(

      I keep hearing more and more good things about the Ferrante books. I'm so intrigued! Even more so after hearing about what a private person the author is.

    1. Isn't it the best?? I should really read it every year :D I'm pretty sure I'm going to re-read Blubber before long as well.

  8. Just finished a cute semi-mystery book: Aunt Dimity and the Summer King. Takes place in a quaint English village. Sold! Starting the Scorch Trials next. Have a great week

    1. Hey, is that a series? Aunt Dimity sounds so familiar to me. You have a great week too, Jenny!

  9. I'm so glad to hear Great Kitchens of the Midwest was great - I've had my eye on that one!

    1. Whenever a book is set in the Midwest my hopes get high. I've been let down, more than I care to admit. But this one was so good. It was Midwestern but in a way that didn't make all of us sound like super small town nincompoops, lol. I mean, I AM a small town nincompoop but we do have all sorts of people here and this book reflected that. I'm babbling, ha ha.

  10. I'm currently in a bit of a reading slump. Which basically means I'm doing rereads in audio--listening right now to THE STRAIN.

    1. Nothing wrong with a couple of comfortable re-reads. I swear those have been my best reading moments this year. Stephen King and Judy Blume, ahhhh, it's like coming home :D

  11. After going on a huge library bender the last couple of months, I need to focus back on books I own that I haven't read! Right now I'm reading "Behind the Beautiful Forevers" by Katherine Boo, and then I'm not sure what next. I'm craving non-fiction lately and I have a bunch on my shelves to pick from. Maybe "Cooked" (Pollan), "Just Kids" (Smith), or "My Cross to Bear" (Allman).

    1. I miss my library so much. Sigh.

      Behind the Beautiful Forevers is one my all time fave nonfiction books. So good, so awful. You know what I mean.

  12. Can't wait to hear what you thought of the Blume selection; I need to read some of those again as an adult and find out how I would react to them now.

    1. You can't go wrong with classic Blume. Are You There God was just as amazing now as it was then :D

  13. Jeez, you got a lot of reading done this week. Go you!
    You should probably close your eyes in front of your bookshelf and grab a book at random.

    1. It was a good week! (Very short books helped a lot, lol) I like the idea of blindly grabbing something next time! ;)

  14. Friday I finished reading Secondhand Spirits by Juliet Blackwell, and now I'm reading The Agency: A Spy in the House by Y S Lee. I really enjoyed Secondhand Spirits, and The Agency is very interesting so far.
