Snapshot Monday #8

Last week one of my sons was sick.  Not terribly sick, but what he has was contagious and he got ordered to stay home all week.  So I stayed home with him for a day and a half.  And I finally, finally got some books finished.  My Currently Reading list is down to five!

I finished: You, Maybe by Rachel Vail; The Bully Book by Eric Kahn Gale (review coming tomorrow); Fat Kid Rules the World by KL Going (review on Wednesday) and The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey (which I reviewed last week after I finished it).

I also checked the first season of Deadwood out from my public library and am very caught up in that.  I tried watching it when it was first on but the swearing and dirtiness kind of got to me.  I got over it and am now loving it!

Right now I am reading The House of the Scorpion, one I have been wanting to read forever.  It is completely engrossing!
What are you reading today?


  1. A week? I don't know when I was ever able to stay home a week from school because I was sick. That sounds kind of bad. Hope he's better!

    That copy of The House of the Scorpion is seriously beat up. I've been wanting to read it for awhile too. I'm reading Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler. Have a nice week!

    1. He is totally fine. He tested positive for whopping cough, however it was probably the most mild case EVER! He jut couldn't go back to school till he finished his antibiotics because he was contagious. Super boring for him.

      Yes, that's one of our library copies of House of the Scorpion. I am loving it! I hope Bittersweet is good, I love Sarah Ockler!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I LOVE this book! Read it awhile back. So excited to see it finally has a sequel!
