It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It has been a very busy week here at My Book Retreat! I had scheduled a couple book tours that both took place this week, and I also found time for other posts as well.

I put up my review of The Active, Creative Child by Stephanie Vlahov. I actually put that up shortly after publishing this weekly recap last week. I also shared a guest post in which the author talks about the needs of active, creative children in school.

The other book tour I participated in last week was for a sci-fi book called Hoodoo Sea by Rolf Hitzer.

I also finally finished reading A Note from an Old Acquaintance by Bill Walker. You can click on the title to see my review of that one.

Finally, I reviewed some Christmas books I've been reading with my kids.

Currently Reading
I'm finishing up Everything Changes by Jonathan Tropper. I'm enjoying it, but it's not nearly as funny as the other book I read of his: This is Where I Leave You.

Up Next
The Fall Into Reading Challenge ends today, and unfortunately I won't be finishing the last book on my list, which is The Little Giant of Aberdeen County by Tiffany Baker. At this point, I'm not sure if I'll read that next, or move on to Blood of My Brother by James Lepore, which I am scheduled to review next week. I'm honestly more in the mood for a thriller, so I think The Little Giant will have to wait a little longer.

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. Sounds like a great list. The only one I've read is Little Giant.

  2. Sounds like a very busy week. Hope this one coming up is great and that you have a very Merry Christmas.

  3. Too bad you didn't quite finish your list. I had fun reading wishlist and TBR books.

  4. I've seen quite a few things about The Little Giant of Aberdeen County. I'm not quite sure yet if it's something I'd enjoy. We shall see!

  5. I have some books by Jonathan Tropper on my TBR list, I am interested to hear what you thought when you are done

  6. I need to complete and review Bill Walkers book too. I am liking it so far.

    Have a great Christmas Julie!

  7. Wow, I'm impressed you've fit in so much reading and blogging at this time of year! Crazy busy here! (but still reading!)

    The other Tropper book I really loved was The Book of Joe (they adapted it into a very good TV show called October Road which was unfortunately cancelled).

    Enjoy your reading week!



Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts!
