Magic Monday ~ Hoping for a Dazzling Week


I like Mondays. I also like magic. I figured I’d combine the two and make a Monday feature that is truly me: a little bit of magic and a look at the week ahead.

Some quick card magic and quicker patter from Alex Elmsley:

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?

I’ve been behind the ball for the last two weeks. After a semi-restful weekend, I’m ready to begin the week with a clean(er) slate.

American Ghost was feeling like an anchor around my neck so I decided it was time to mark it DNF and move on. This week I will be finishing up From the Dust Returned by Ray Bradbury and moving on to The Accidental Alchemist by Gigi Pandian. My Deal Me In story for this week is “Prey” by Richard Matheson.

From the Dust Returned The Accidental Alchemist (An Accidental Alchemist Mystery)

Next week is the #FrightFall Readathon; most of my current TBR is mystery, so I’ll have to find something more appropriate for that.

  1. Hi, I’m visiting from It’s Monday.

    Wow. I’ve actually read one of the books on your list, “The Accidental Alchemist”. (Don’t worry, I won’t give anything away.)

    Oh great, now I have Magic Monday in my head to the tune of “Manic Monday”. *lol*

    Here’s my It’s Monday!

    1. Somehow, I’ve never managed to get Manic Monday stuck in my head from this…until now. 😉 I’m a little late to The Accidental Alchemist, but how can I resist a gargoyle named Dorian Robert-Houdin?
