Change up! I started reading "A Man Called Ove" by Fredrik Backman as my first #HS Readathon book! It's very good so far. They were showing the movie at our local library last week and I had the book, so I have started it and plan to watch the movie when I am finished.

We were here yesterday and I purchased 4 books to add to my TBR (like I needed them). Anyway, the Book Loft is 32 rooms of heavenly books in all genres imaginable. It was wonderful! Here is what I bought:
I read "The Kitchen House" a while ago and really liked it, so I have been wanting to get "The Glory Over Everything." "Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend" was recommended by Katarina Bivald and I am anxious to read it. "Lilac Girls" has been popping up in places - you know how that is, you keep seeing a book until you buy it. The story sounds very good. "Ink and Bone" is the first in The Great Library series by Rachel Caine and I heard about it from one of my Book Tubers on You Tube. Will I get to any of these during the High Summer Readathon? Who knows. Ooooh! I forgot to get a Christmas book. I will look at our library for one.
What are you reading today?

It's that time of year again - time for the High Summer Readathon! As you can see, it runs from July 17 - 30, 2017. There are no reading requirements, so I can whittle away at my TBR pile. It will be great! Here are a few of the books that I plan to read - I usually only get through 2 or 3: "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" by Victor Hugo. I am planning to listen to the audiobook while I read the physical book. "Let's Pretend This Never Happened" by Jenny Lawson. It is our book club selection for July. AND "Heartless" by Marissa Meyer. I read the Lunar Chronicles and loved them, so I can't wait to dig into this book. During the end of the High Summer Readathon, the Christmas In July Readathon will be going on for 48 hours July 29 & 30. For that, I will dig out one of my Christmas novels. I know I have some put away to read this Christmas, I just don't remember what they are. Anyway, I love Christmas!!! If you want to sign up for the High Summer Readathon, here is where you can do it.
