It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 5/21/18

21 May

I didn’t get a chance to read everything I wanted to this week, but I’m not counting it as a total loss! I got through a little bit of The Disappearing Spoon by Sam Kean, but as it’s a more in depth history of the periodic table than I really need (or want) to now, I stopped about a third of the way through. This would make an amazing read for your science  and nonfiction readers who are looking for something built more like a middle grade novel than a book of facts and figures. It was very interesting, but I decided to move on.

I did get to read Bob by Wendy Mass and Rebecca Stead and although I’d love to dissect my thoughts on this one, it would lead to far too many spoilers, so I’ll just have to talk with my coworker about it this week! I also sad down and read Amal Unbound by Aisha Saeed in just one sitting – I’m so glad that gorgeous cover didn’t disappoint me as a story! I’m going to review this one further as it’s own post later this week!

I doubt I’ll get to all the titles I listed, especially since I’ll be heading out to my parents’ home this weekend to spend some quality time with my immediate family – all my siblings will be in town and my grandmother is also flying in, so it’ll be fun and crazy and will most likely leave very little room to get any reading done, but I can’t go away for a long weekend and not have enough to read!
