What are you reading the week of August 24- 30th?

And either last week's question who are you and approximately where do you live?

Or, what book have you read recently that you recommend and why? Or both!

Last night I finished Talulla Rising by Glen Duncan, which is a literary werewolf novel.

Today I started Sparrow Hill Road by Seanan MacGuire which is a book of short stories, about a ghost/ ghosts who help people get to where they need to be going after they die, or keep people from dying. It's fun!

Oh I'm Julia from Upstate New York.

 I finished Top Secret Twenty-One by Janet Evanovich yesterday. It was a fun, easy read as usual. I've started The Wedding Bees by Sarah-Kate Lynch. She has quirky characters in her books and this one is no exception.

 I can't think of anything that I've read recently that is fantastic but I'm really looking forward to Long Way Home by Louise Penny which comes out next week. It's a favourite series of mine. I did pass along my copy of Bruno, Chief Of Police by Martin Walker to a friend that I thought would enjoy the series.

With school starting next week I've been trying to curb my nighttime reading until I get into a sleep pattern that gets me up earlier, lol! So this week I'm taking a break on reading my books and started reading a chapter book with my littlest. She loves spooky things, so we're trying, The School Is Alive! (Eerie Elementary Series #1) by Jack Chabert. The second one just came out yesterday, so hopefully the series will keep goung. :)

Are you finding them less laugh-out-loud as the first few were? I feel like it's the same thing over and over again. The storylines are good, but they lack something. At least for me.

I'm reading the short stories in "Dangerous Vegetables - Created by Keoth Laumer", sstories selected by Laumer and, after his death, his friends.  After reading the first few stories,  I am now terrified by mushrooms, tomatoes, other fungi, plums and other plants containing chlorophyll, and, after skimming ahead, I see that I  will soon be traumatized by manna, potatoes, cauliflower, and other denizens of this dangerous realm.

 Erin,

 Yes, I'm also finding them getting too repetitive. I'm also starting to get tired of the Ranger/ Morelli triangle.

 I'm  just going to start The Valley of Amazement by Amy Tan.
