It's Monday! What Are You Reading? - Aug 24

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organize yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.

The second to the last Monday in August has come so quickly. The Lil' Diva is taking a semester off of college since they are going remote, but the Lil' Princess heads back to our local private school next Monday. I guess the extended summer break had to come to an end sometime.

I am reading a few books right now, but still have a bunch to get through.

My review of this book appeared on Friday.

Read the review here.

I also read this new release for my children's book blog. Very cute and funny. My review will appear this week. 

I am almost done with this book. My review will appear on August 28.

My review of this next one will appear August 27.

My review of this one will appear on September 9. I like the unique style of telling a person's story via poetry and prose. 

I read this from my Kindle Unlimited selections. I'm not thinking of starting a new YouTube channel, but I like to read up on timely topics.

Next up are these.

Then I want to catch up on some books I've bought but haven't read yet. I also added this to my Kindle Unlimited collection based upon the author's panel at the NAR Leadership Summit. 

Have you bought or borrowed a book from the library based upon an author's talk? Are you usually happy with your book choice? Have you ever been disappointed?

Yeah, my kids are back next week too. It's going to be an interesting school year with all the new changes. Enjoy your reading week!

I’ve generally only gone to authors talks where I’ve already read and enjoyed something by them, I hope you enjoy the talk and the book

Wishing you a great reading week

Marg said...

I will occasionally go to author talks if I think I might be interested, and almost inevitably I want to read their books.

Have a great week.

I’ve seen The Color of Law on social media a few times, and it sounds really interesting. I’ll pick up a copy if I ever come across one. Have a great week!

Nice looking variety of books. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

It will definitely be an interesting school year. Laura. Our district has a good plan in place, but not sure how easy it will be for working parents.

Shelleyrae and Marg, I see what you're saying. I coordinate a writers conference every year, so I often end up listening to talks from authors I'm not familiar with.

Aj, I heard about The Color of Law before, but it was the author's talk that really made me want to read it.

Thanks for visiting, everyone.

I am curious about The Color of Law. Enjoy your week and your books...and here are my WEEKLY UPDATES

Girl Who Reads said...

I bought a book after an author talk but I haven't read it yet (even though it was several years ago). At least I got it signed!

Greg said...

Hard to believe school is here already!

Hope you have a good week. :)

Cheryl said...

Thanks for stopping by, Laurel, Girl Who Reads and Greg.

I'll let you know what I think of The Color of Law, Laurel.

Girl Who Reads, I totally understand it. I have bought books after seeing someone at a conference and I've never read any of them.

Greg, I can;t believe it either.

Elizabeth said...

All of your books look good.
