It's a new week, and time for the weekly Monday post! "It's Monday! What Are You Reading?" is a weekly meme hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date. Click on the picture above to visit her blog.
Here is what I am currently reading:
I am about 3/4 of the way through this one on audio, and I am really enjoying it. The Monsters of Templeton by Lauren Groff was Groff's first novel. The town of Templeton is modeled on Groff's home town of Cooperstown, which is the birthplace of baseball and famous author James Fenimore Cooper. After this I will just have Groff's collection of short stories Delicate Edible Birds and Other Stories to read by her.
This week I will also be reading The Nest by Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney for an in-person book group at the library. It is a special after hours book group for people who donated to the library.
I also hope to start reading The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes. Last year I set of goal of reading all of the Missouri Association of School Librarians Readers Award nominees for grades 4 and up. I was doing really well until I sort of stopped. I have read 11/12 Mark Twain nominees (grades 4-6), 11/12 Truman nominees (grades 6-8), and 10/15 Gateway nominees (high school). I don't know if I'll be able to finish up before the winners are announced later this month, but I am going to try.
After that I am looking at a few different books to start:
