Ladies and Gents, It's Monday!


Hello there, reading friends! How were your weeks? We had a good week, and today (Monday) we are off to the aquarium with some of my siblings. David is in love with a TV show called The Octonauts, which is all about cartoon animals saving sea creatures. I have a feeling he is going to have a blast. 

I'm getting back into the swing of reading after a slow week last week. I really liked Outcasts United and the first few chapters of The Devoted are flying. It's so nice to love books again!

    1. There was an excerpt available online before the book was published and I was completely hooked. You should definitely see if it is up your alley.
