it’s monday! what are you reading?

It’s Monday, what are you reading?—a weekly blog meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

July has been nuts so far, and shows no sign of slowing down for at least another week. My husband is at a music festival this month on a composer residency, so I decided to extend my usual trip up to Wisconsin for my family reunion a few extra days (also partly because my 11-month-old niece was there, too! They are in the process of moving back from Hawaii—my brother just graduated from the university there with his master’s in food science). Then, as soon as I got back, KC Fringe Festival started up and I’ve already been out to review three shows for KCMetropolis.org. I have one or two shows a night to go until the fest concludes! It’s always a bit crazy and exhausting but a lot of fun.

The reunion was spectacular, as usual! We have it at my gramma’s farm and always pick a theme, with costumes and music and skits—the whole works. This year’s theme was Disney, so of course as a redhead I had to do a spin on Ariel from The Little Mermaid.

Well, close enough at least! 🙂 I ended up listening to two audiobooks on the trip (reviews linked to titles):

But that’s about it. Not much progress on my paper or ebook reading. That’s always how it goes on family trips for me though. I’m too busy having fun and visiting! Still working on My Cross to Bear and Behind the Beautiful Forevers. Of course, at my folks’ house I found my old copy of Jurassic Park and want to drop everything to read that now!

What are you guys reading this week? (“You guys”… you can tell I was in Wisconsin 😉 )

  1. “You guys” is a Wisconsin thing? I say that all the time! I wonder if it’s the influence of my native Wisconsinite parents or if the lingo has bled enough into Illinois to be a thing?
