It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a fun weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey where we share what we've read and reviewed over the past week and what we plan to read next.
After a crazy week of library programs, the weekend felt kind of dull now that summer reading program is over. My murder mystery dinner was a success and everyone seemed to have a lot of fun although once again no one guessed the killer (it is one of those games where the suspects don't even know who the killer is until the confession is read). I am now planning another smaller murder mystery program for Halloween and have some ideas for making sure the killer gets caught this time :)
City of Jasmine by Deanna Raybourn
I Work at a Public Library by Gina Sheridan
I really enjoyed this one but there is a creepy story (involving a perverted phone call from a "patron") in it that also happened to someone who works at my library. The stories are so similar we couldn't help but wonder if the same person was pranking different libraries. Thankfully to counter the unpleasant/creepy stories, there are also positive and inspiring stories too.
The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan (reread)
The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan (reread)
I listened to this audio book last year and thought I would listen to the whole series on audio to get ready for the final book, The Blood of Olympus, this October. It will be sad when it is over. Not sure if Rick Riordan will revisit these characters again or just move on to his Norse mythology series.
Night of a Thousand Stars by Deanna Raybourn
This is a companion novel to City of Jasmine (see the link to my review of that one above). I like it so far and I think fans of City of Jasmine and the Lady Julia mysteries should definitely give this a try. There will be cameos of beloved characters...
