Monday Malarkey

Recent arrivals:

  • Glimmer Train, Winter 2017, Issue 98 - purchased, yet surprised to see this arrive so quickly, since I just got my first issue from the subscription, last week.
  • Your Alien Returns by Tammi Sauer and Goro Fujita - from Sterling Children's Books for review
  • News of the World by Paulette Jiles - from HarperCollins for review

Books finished since last Malarkey:

  • The Paris Review, Issue 218 - I gave this 3 stars and considered knocking it down to 2 at Goodreads. There were a few stories and poems that I loved but there was a lot of material I considered substandard or just flat boring.
  • News of the World by Paulette Jiles - Called to me from the moment it walked in the door and I'm glad. I absolutely loved this book. Hope to review it very soon.
  • Your Alien Returns by Tammi Sauer and Goro Fujita - As always with children's books, I read this the moment it walked in the door. Loved it. The aliens are so stinking cute!

Currently reading:

  • Leveling the Playing Field by Rod Scher - Planning to focus on finishing this one, next.
  • I Can't Begin to Tell You by Elizabeth Buchan - A WWII novel.

  1. Looks like lots of fun books! I love the zoo.

    1. Yes, I've already read two out of three and loved them both! The zoo is awesome. We just have a small zoo but we love it.

  2. Enjoy all your books!

    1. Thanks, Kelly! I've enjoyed the two I've read. Need to get started on that little stack of Glimmer Train periodicals.
