Weekly Round-Up 9/23

Weekly Round-Up is my wrap-up of last week's activities and includes what I'm reading this week, reviews I've posted, books in the mail and anything else of interest plus From the Library, my weekly listing of what I've checked out from the library.

This week I'm reading Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan and listening to Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers, read by Erin Moon. I'm reading Nick and Tesla's High-Voltage Lab by Bob Pflugfelder and Steve Hockensmith with my son right now.

Last week I reviewed The Peculiar by Stefan Bachmann, read by Peter Altschuler.

Sent from Quirk Books for review
 Nick and Tesla's Robot Army Rampage: A Mystery with Hoverbots, Bristle Bots, and Other Robots You Can Build Yourself by Bob Pflugfelder and Steve Hockensmith
In this second novel of the Nick and Tesla series, the precocious brother-and-sister duo find themselves solving another baffling mystery.  As the story opens, their Uncle Newt takes a consulting gig at a cut-rate amusement park, engineering animatronic figures for a cheap Hall of Presidentsknockoff.  One perk of the job is that Nick and Tesla have unlimited access to the amusement park all summer long—but the kids quickly discover that one of the park employees has a sinister plan.  They’ll have to build a few robots of their own to foil him! Readers are invited to join in the fun as each story contains instructions and blueprints for five different projects. Learning about science has never been so dangerous—or so much fun!


  1. I want to read Crazy Rich Asians. I started reading a sample of it and I really liked it. I enjoyed Grave Mercy though I haven't yet read the sequel.

  2. Sounds like a nice variety this week! I've been hearing good things about Crazy Rich Asians.

    Enjoy your books this week -
