It's Monday and the editing is good!

Hooray! Sheila at Book Journey is back to hosting "It's Monday, What Are You Reading?" and I am so glad that the whole gang will be meeting there again.

This week was a little out of the ordinary because D had no school on Monday and Tuesday. After the two of them are home all day, just having one kid with me seems like a piece of cake! Then this Saturday, the husband and I got up very early and headed to the annual conference of our group of churches. He was there to represent our church and find out what is going on in the denomination. I was there to sing in the choir and most importantly, talk up the book I edited. The book contains a devotion for each week of the year written by one of our pastors and then has scripture and questions for reflection. It was kind of amazing to see my name on the title page and talk with conference attendees about the book.

So enough about the editing. What did I read this week? I am 100% into mystery, murder, and mayhem as I work through my Readers in Peril books. I finished The Last Policeman and really liked it. I already own the second book, so I think I will buy the third book and finish the trilogy one after the other. I also read Bellweather Rhapsody, about a high school music competition in a haunted hotel. Perfect RIP stuff!

Next up is A Window Opens and then I will be reading Ann Patchett's Truth and Beauty, about her friendship with Lucy Grealy.

  2. I hope you enjoy all your darker reads coming up. I'm looking forward to getting in to those myself, I'm just trying to get through one more read before I can delve in to them.

  4. I loved Truth and Beauty. Ann Patchett is a favorite and her bookstore, Parnassus Books has some great featured authors each month. Happy reading. A Window Opens is on my list!
