It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Good morning! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We went on a train ride with Santa on Saturday. Unfortunately, the train had open windows and it was 39 degrees and raining. We froze! But C was happy to see Santa, and to spend time with his friends from his Y Guides tribe, who were there as well. M, on the other hand, was not happy about being cold for an hour, or about being near the big guy in the red suit. I'm thinking she and I should have hung out at Starbucks while C and his dad rode the train!

Last week, I finished up Patch by Mucheru Njaga. You can click on the title to see my review. I had a giveaway for it, but that ended on Saturday night. It's an excellent novel about bullying, based on the author's own experiences. I highly recommend it.

I also reviewed some children's books in my What My Children Are Reading post.

Christmas came a little when I received my Holiday Book Blogger Swap package on Monday. I was very excited to see two books from my wish list, as well as a few cool new bookmarks!

And coming up this morning, I'll be publishing my review of The Active, Creative Child by Stephanie Vlahov. I'll update with a link once it goes up.

Currently Reading
Amazingly, I'm still reading A Note from an Old Acquaintance by Bill Walker. This has turned into a book that I have going constantly, while reading others at the same time. I'm going to try to focus on it this week and finish it up before starting another book! I am actually enjoying it, but it's been a slow read for me for some reason.

Up Next
Here's what I have to choose from next: Everything Changes by Jonathan Tropper and The Little Giant of Aberdeen County by Tiffany Baker. Those are the last two on my Fall Into Reading Challenge, and I'd like to finish at least one of them before the 21st! I don't think I'm going to finish them both by next Tuesday, but we'll see...

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.

  1. The active, creative child sounds very interesting (I already checked out your review). And I would love to read the next two on your list - Everything Changes and The Little Giant of Aberdeen County. I really loved two other Tropper books (The Book of Joe and This Is Where I Leave You) and have heard lots of good things about the Little Giant.

    Enjoy!
