It's Monday - where did July come from?!?


Here we are again - a new week!
This past week has been pretty quiet with the exception of celebrating my grandmother's birthday. But this week coming up should be a little more interesting. I'm back to work on Tuesday. Thank goodness we have off on Thursday for July 4th! It makes easing back into a work week a bit easier. We are also psyched that our sister (aka former foreign exchange student) will be here for the next month from Germany.
Now to the books!

      A quirky title or intriguing cover is enough to catch my interest too!

  7. Hmmm - it was my granfather's b-day also in June. Though I'll bet he's older than your grandma (since I'm older than you, lol). He has recently turned 106 years old. Made it to 106 and then just a week ago had a stroke, but he's fighting through it. Tough viejito. He's in Panama, Central America.

    Read your review on Monsters and Men and I've decided I need to read the series. :)

    Have a great week

    1. It was a really good read. I didn't know it was a sequel, but I think you can enjoy The Betrayal without reading the first book.
