Top Ten Tuesday: Short Story Anthologies

17 Jul

I’m not a huge short story fan, because as soon as I feel invested in the story, it’s over and I always want to know more! That being said, this list includes anthologies that I really enjoyed reading and some that are still on my TBR list!

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 7/16/18

16 Jul

This past week, my family went down the shore for a family reunion of sorts with almost my entire dad’s side of the family. That means at any given time there were about 15 people in a beach house! And even with two trips back and forth to work for meetings, I was able to read 3 books and start another one!

I grabbed a bunch of YA titles that I’ve been hearing about and just haven’t gotten a chance to read. I was able to read:

  • American Panda by Gloria Chao
  • A Girl Like That by Tanaz Bhathena
  • I Will Always Write Back: How One Letter Changes Two Lives by Caitlin Alifirenka, Martin Ganda with Liz Welch

I also just started The Adventures of a Girl Called Bicycle by Christina Uss. I’ve also got a few books coming in as holds this week at work, so I’m hoping to get a chance to a few of these as well:

  • Twilight Chant by Holly Thompson
  • The House That Lou Built by Mae Respicio
  • The Boy, the Boat, and the Beast by Samantha M. Clark
