What are you reading? Wednesday

It's the hot days of summer now and reading on the porch with a drink in hand is the perfect way to spend a day.

I just opened the latest in Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series, Time Untime. I am not sure if I like it yet or not. I like that there are old characters I like and that there is a new mythology (in addition to Greek mythology) and of course the ending of time is pretty timely (harhar) with the Mayan predictions of 2012 and all. I'm just not interested in the characters yet.

My son is going to camp tomorrow with his classmates for the first time (overnight). They are even cooking their own supper (curry & rice). He is so excited! I just wish his sister was going with him to give my husband and I a kid-free night for the first time in years (no teen babysitters in Japan). Ha!

To get ready he is reading Franklin Goes to Day Camp to his sister. Hope it lives up to his expectations!

What are you reading this week?


  1. Covers like that Kenyon novel don't exactly strive to open up their demographic of readers, do they?

    I have no change from my reading choices from last week. Hoping to start Paul Glennon's "Bookweird" with my daughter this week.

  2. I just finished "One for the Murphys" by Lynda Mullaly Hunt. Great read.

    Now I'm on to "A Diamond in the Desert" by Kathryn Fitzmaurce.

    Will likely finish it tonight and them move on to "The Kite Fighters" by Linda Sue Park

    (Aside.. Have you read "To Timbuktu: 9 Countries, 2 People, 1 True Story" by Casey Scieszka (Jon's daughter) and Steven Weinberg? It might appeal to your expat sensibilities. A book for YA and up.
