It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday…again!

How was your weekend? How are those apple-picking, pumpkin-carving, Fall bucket lists coming? We got RAIN 🌧 on Friday and Saturday and our favorite NFL team won!

It was a great reading week… And ”book acquiring” week… (I have no self-control! 🤷🏻‍♀️) AND I attended two author events!

October is #Blogoween 👻 and we wrote two posts.


Post 5 – Local Ghosts who Demand A Book

Post 6 – Vampires!

I cranked through 5️⃣ books this past week! Did I stick to my list from last Monday’s post? No, I did not. Hence the term ”mood reader”. Here are the titles I completed last week:

  • The Orphan Keeper (review to come): ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️, based on a true story about coming home.
  • A Thousand Doors (review posted 11/5): ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️, short story anthology
  • Love In Catalina Cove (review posted 10/30): ⭐️⭐️⭐️.5 A hot and steamy romance
  • Evidence of the Affair (review to come) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ heartbreaking and unique storyline
  • The Curiosities (review posted February 2019) ⭐️⭐️⭐️.5 interesting take on grief and art.

Daisy Jones & The Six – it’s really exciting so far! Its got all the sex, drugs and rock and roll you’d imagine and it’s crazy to think they aren’t a real band!
