The RAHM Report for 9/4/17

 After reading so much for Bout of Books two weeks ago, I took things a little easier last week.

Finished Reading: 

  • Ghosts of Greenglass House by Kate Milford (ARC)
    This is a really long book, and even it is well-written and interesting, it still took me a while to finish. I enjoyed it as much as the first book and plan to schedule a review to post during my "maternity leave" from blogging in October.
  • The War with Mr. Wizzle by Gordon Korman
    This was a quick and fun read, with lots of references to outdated technology. I was planning to review the entire series, but then I realized OpenLibrary doesn't have the last 3 books and Overdrive's ebook copies aren't available outside of Canada. If I can get physical copies from the library, I will, but otherwise my review may just focus on the first four. 
  • Depend on Katie John by Mary Calhoun
    A list on Goodreads identified this as a school story, so I was going to count it for the Old School Kidlit Challenge, but after reading it, I realize it doesn't really fit the genre. I enjoyed it anyway, but I'll need to find something else if I want another book for the challenge. 

Currently Reading:

  • Raising Demons by Shirley Jackson
    Yes, I'm still reading this. No, I'm not reading very much of it. But it's still on the nightstand and I do read a page or two here and there, and I will eventually finish. I might try to make that happen this week. 
  • Butternut Summer by Mary McNear
    I'm enjoying this second book of the series more than the first. I'm about halfway through, and my library copy will expire in just under a week, so I will definitely be finishing this week. 
  • Farewell Summer by Ray Bradbury
    Having finished re-reading Dandelion Wine, I can finally read this sequel. It's much shorter and quicker than either Dandelion Wine or Something Wicked This Way Comes, and seems to have more of a clear plot, so I imagine I'll finish in a couple of days.
I'll be linking up today Unleashing Readers/Teach Mentor Texts and Book Date for It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


  1. I loved Greenglass House so much I finally requested Ghosts of Greenglass House from Netgalley. I'm worried because I couldn't even finish The Left-Handed Fate.

    1. I borrowed The Left-Handed Fate from the library and could not get into it at all. Ghosts of Greenglass House was much more like the first book, so I think you will enjoy it.

  2. I am looking forward to reading Ghosts of Greenglass House. Come see what I'm reading

  3. I didn't realize that Dandelion Wine (which I absolutely adored) has a sequel. I heart Ray Bradbury, I shall try to find Farewell Summer.
