It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Good Monday morning. I hope you had a good week. Mine was tough. My son was home sick all week and ended up being diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday. He's home again today but hopefully he'll be back to school tomorrow.

I managed to do some reading and reviewing last week. I published a review of Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator by Roald Dahl. I also participated in What My Child is Reading this week, so you can see some of the books we've been reading.

I read Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins last week. I also read quite a bit of The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom, but have a few more chapters to finish. I'll write reviews for both of these later this week.

Currently Reading
I'm finishing up The Kitchen House and then will get back to When No One is Watching by Joseph Hayes now. I'm also reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling aloud to my son. I've never actually read it myself, so we're both enjoying it.

Up Next
I plan to move on to A Note from an Old Acquaintance by Bill Walker next. I'm also going to write a recap of the Birth Year Reading Challenge, which I finished last week.

What are you reading this week? This meme is being hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, so hop over there if you'd like to see what others are reading too.

  7. Julie -

    So sorry to hear about your son's illness. I know how tough it is when your child is so sick. Glad to hear he's on the mend.

    How wonderful that you've started reading Harry Potter to him! I'm sure that helped while he was home sick last week. I just love reading great books out loud to my kids (even now that they're older!).

    Looking forward to your reviews. Hope this week is much better for you and for him!
