It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 10/16/17

16 Oct

I was surprisingly able to get a little reading done last week, even with how busy I was. I read What Girls Are Made Of by Elana K. Arnold and The Littlest Bigfoot by Jennifer Weiner and started Race to the Bottom of the Sea by Lindsay Eagar. I’ve got some catching up to do in terms of writing book reviews and posting them, so I hope to post at least a couple this week, so keep your eyes out for those.

But, Sarah Jac and James have a plan – they’ll work until they save enough money to purchase their own home near the ocean, but it’s not as easy as it looks when everyone’s out to save themselves at whatever the cost. Sarah Jac and James have to keep their love a secret and when an accident occurs they must run to a ranch that most steer clear of.. Real Marvelous.
